It’s no wonder why investors closely monitor Warren Buffett’s portfolio. He is arguably the greatest investor of all time. 


While Berkshire Hathaway itself does not pay a dividend because it prefers to reinvest all of its earnings for growth, Warren Buffett has certainly not been shy about owning shares of dividend-paying stocks, and we will analyze each of Buffett’s dividend stocks in this article. 


A dividend is often the sign of a financially healthy and stable business that is committed to rewarding shareholders. These are some of the qualities Warren Buffett looks for when he invests. 


On Monday, August 15, 2016, new information was released about Berkshire Hathaway’s portfolio. At the end of June 2016, Warren Buffett owned a total of 44 publicly-traded stocks. 


Interestingly enough, 32 of these holdings pay a dividend, and several of them are high dividend stocks with yields in excess of 4%.
