Super Investors Love These 10 Stocks Mostly By Betting On Rising Stock Prices

Today I like to introduce 10 of the top buys from the past quarter by super investors like Warren Buffett or George Soros.

I've posted an article related to the activities of Warren Buffett recently on this blog. Warren is one of the investors I watch closer. I like to stay informed by with most of his decisions, I don't agree.

I like the idea of dividend growth with accent on growth. Growth is more important than yield but you must find a great balance from both.

Google and Berkshire are two top picks on the list who don't pay dividends but generated phenomenal growth in the past. It shows that creating values don't depend on paying dividends or buying back own shares.

The truth is that normal investors like me or maybe you too, need a bigger part of shareholder friendly presents. We don't have the ability to reduce working capital or boost free cash flows by combining several businesses. That's only possible for big investors.

Here are the top dividend results:
