100 Most Attractive Stocks Bought By Popular 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 594 stocks within the past half year.

The top stocks are now Berkshire Hathaway and Google. Berkshire was bought by 16 stock market professionals and Google by 15. Half of the top ten buys came from the technology sector. Investors still love this field because of the high growth potential and strong cash flows. But technology stocks are no big dividend payer. That’s why I did not invest much of my private wealth in technology stocks. That’s a bad strategy because if you want to have growth, the sector is one of the safest bets for the time being.

Here are the most bought dividend stocks:

    I personally started out investing in my early twenties, I was stubborn, I thought I knew everything and what I didn't know I would learn on my own. I didn't want any talking heads filling my head with their great strategies or insight. Gurus brought me many advices of investing for free.
