7 Buffett Backed Dividend Stocks To Bet On

Warren Buffett has 19 dividend stocks with a 2.0% or better yield in his portfolio, but which are the best? I've used a systematic approach to find the seven best -- and rank them, from "worst" to best.

Warren Buffett's investment style is a culmination of value, growth, and quality.

He looks for:

- Great business (quality)
- Trading at fair or better prices (value)
- That will compound his money far into the future (growth)

This approach leads Buffet to invest primarily in dividend stocks. Dividend stocks make up around 92% of Buffett's portfolio.

His top four holdings have an average position weighted dividend yield of 3.2% and make up 63% of his portfolio. High quality dividend growth stocks are the cornerstone of Buffett's portfolio.

Attached you will find 7 of his best dividend bets you should consider for the next years. Each of the results is a high quality stock with room to grow in the future.

Here are the results...
