100 Most Bought Stocks By Big Investment Gurus

Stocks With Recent Engagements By Investment Professionals Researched By Dividend Yield – Stock, Capital, Investment. Investment gurus are asset or fund managers with big amounts of cash under management. They became popular by big returns and spectacular investment strategies. I talk about investors like George Soros and Warren Buffett. They all have one thing in common: The average return beats the market and if they invest, the market follows.

I made a screen of the biggest stock buys from 49 super investors over the recent six month and ranked them in my 100 best guru buy list. They all bought 577 stocks within the past half year.



The top stocks are Google (GOOG) and Oracle (ORCL). The information internet provider was bought by seventeen investment gurus and the business software company by sixteen. Sixty percent of the ten biggest buys were made within the technology sector and forty within the financial sector. Below is a detailed overview of the best yielding dividend stocks that were bought by at least three stock market gurus.


Here are my favorites:
