Warren Buffett Buys Surprisingly These 8 Dividend Stocks

Warren Buffett is one of the most trusted investors in the world. Recently, he came out with his 13F Filling which informs about the recent investment activity.

I studied Warren's latest buys and sells. My thoughts are clear: He invest into cable and telecom stocks. Below is a small overview of his latest purchases. In addition, I've implemented a detailed view on his latest dividend buys for you.


In total, Warren bought 13 stocks of which eight pay dividends. The highest yielding company was the telcom company Verizon followed by the car maker General Motors.

His total portfolio value hit the USD 107 billion benchmark and around 65 percent of his assets are invested into four companies (Wells Fargo, Coca Cola, American Express and IBM as well).

45 percent of his assets have a relationship to the financial sector. Insurance stocks have made him rich in the past but I think those shares were only a strong cash source for further investments. 

Buffett is a great investors with a fantastic sense for good investments but everybody should develop his own investment style.
