Best Warren Buffett Stocks To Invest In Right Now

At $257,200.00 a share, investing in Berkshire Hathaway Inc. (NYSE: BRK.A) is simply not an option for most retail investors like us. But the nearly 50 other “Warren Buffett stocks” that Berkshire invests in come at a much lower price point.

While we at Money Morning don’t recommend all of Warren Buffett’s stock picks for retail investors, our experts do like a lot of them. One in particular is a stock Money Morning Director of Technology & Venture Capital Michael A. Robinson recently recommended.

But before we get to the stock pick, here’s a list of the 10 top-performing Warren Buffett stocks so far this year…

Company YTD Gains
Moody’s Corp. (NYSE: MCO) 34.25%
Apple Inc. (Nasdaq: AAPL) 30.24%
Verisign Inc. (Nasdaq: VRSN) 29.88%
Restaurant Brands Inc. (NYSE: QSR) 29.16%
WABCO Holdings Inc. (NYSE: WBC) 28.97%
Visa Inc. (NYSE: V) 26.20%
Liberty Sirius XM Group Class C (Nasdaq: LSXMK) 24.54%
MasterCard Inc. (NYSE: MA) 24.35%
Liberty Sirius XM Group Class A (Nasdaq: LSXMA) 22.89%
Sirius XM Holdings Inc. (Nasdaq: SIRI) 22.81%

Again, we don’t recommend all of the stocks above for retail investors. After all, Warren Buffett is one of the most wealthy and legendary investors in history. He has a completely different set of goals from us.

Advisors’ Opinion:

  • [By Ashraf Eassa]

    In 2014, chip tear-down reports revealed that Apple’s (NASDAQ:AAPL) then-new A8 applications processor was manufactured exclusively by Taiwan Semiconductor Manufacturing Company (NYSE:TSM). This was something of a surprise to many because TSMC’s main rival in chip manufacturing, Samsung (NASDAQOTH:SSNLF), had been the exclusive manufacturer of Apple’s A-series chips for several generations.

    Investors should also keep their enthusiasm in check because Loxo Oncology isn’t alone in targeting TRK fusion and RET mutations:Roche Holdings (NASDAQOTH:RHHBY) could challenge it in TRK fusions and Blueprint Medicines (NASDAQ:BPMC) could compete with it in RET mutations.

  • [By ]

    Also, the partnership with BAYRY brought a lot of upfront money to the table for LOXO, which cut down the risk for this equity substantially. But this came at the cost of potential earnings growth, and if the drug cannot achieve significant market penetration, then LOXO stands to take a deeper valuation hit than would a pharma company that completely owns a drug. Furthermore, LOXO’s pipeline in the near term rests entirely on Trk inhibitors. Competition in this space (say, from Ignyta’s (OTCQX:RHHBY) entrectinib) could easily eat into the potential earnings.

    Friday was a strong day on Wall Street, as major benchmarks finished higher by 1% to 2%. Market participants focused their attention on the April jobs report, which included a drop in the unemployment rate to 3.9%, its lowest level in more than 17 years. Nonfarm payroll gains of 164,000 weren’t extremely strong, and some saw wage growth of just 2.6% as bad news for workers. Yet from many investors’ perspective, weak wage growth is actually a positive, as it indicates a lack of inflationary pressure that’s good for most stocks. Good news regarding several key individual companies also helped stoke favorable sentiment. Apple (NASDAQ:AAPL), Kraft Heinz (NASDAQ:KHC), and California Resources (NYSE:CRC) were among the best performers on the day. Here’s why they did so well.
