6 Dividend Stocks Warren Buffett Added Recently To His $100 Billion Portfolio

Do you like Dividends? I do and you should love them too. 

Dividends are paybacks to shareholders, money that you can use for reinvestments or your daily spendings. 

But the dividend is not everything you need to look on when you think about investments. 


It doesn’t make sense to buy a high yielding stock with high debt and no growth perspectives. Inflation will destroy your investment in the end.

One very successful investor who has been focused on dividend growth investing is Warren Buffett. I don't recommend covering his investments but Warren has a great idea base for us normal investors from that you can also benefit.

His latest SEC-Filling shows that he has assets which are worth over $100 billion. Around 43 percent of his money is currently invested within the financial sector.

Below is a small overview about his latest dividend buys. Seven of his ten most recent purchases pay a dividend. The best yielding pick was General Electric with a 3.42 yield.

The biggest impact had the Goldman Sachs (GS) transactions with a 2.14 percent change result to his portfolio. 

Nearly of Warren's latest buys are cheaply priced measured by a forward P/E of less than 15.

4 stocks still dominate his asset allocation: Wells Fargo (WFC), Coca Cola (KO), American Express (AXP) and finally IBM (IBM). Each of them has a 10+ percent share in his portfolio. It's a clear signal to buy only those stocks that underlying business you understand.
