Warren Buffett Sells These 7 Stocks

Recently, I wrote about the great value investor, Warren Buffett and introduced his latest dividend stock buys. This blog is dedicated to stocks with a long history of dividend growth.

I like those stocks, especially when they offer a bigger part of safeness due to a large diversification.
