    Thanks for the post, Tom, especially the table of Buffett's portfolio changes.

    It was an article about Warren Buffett's holdings that first got me into buying dividend stocks in 2011. I doubt he's lost money on COP, because he had a lot in 2011 and his PSX holdings must have begun when COP split that off.

    I was sorry to see he's bailed from COP, since I still own it, but glad he's upped his stake in PSX and, especially, IBM, since I own those, too.

    Also, I really had to chuckle at PCP being included as a "dividend stock". I seriously doubt that a 0.06% dividend plays into anyone's decision about buying the stock!

    1. I often thought to buy XOM, that is black gold in the bank but the valuations did not come down as I would like.
      Warren is iconic but it doesn't matter what he buys. Stocks went up and down and many stocks deliver a better return than warren buffet.

      Sometimes I'm really surprised what he buys. He recently bought a biker apparel company in Germany for 400 million. Funny. I never would buy something similar but he must know what he does.

      IBM is a good choice if the company continues to eliminate low hanging fruits and strengthen its consulting and software business. Technology is such a great place for investors. I love the high margins and strong cash flows.
