Best Warren Buffett Stocks To Own Right Now

It’s no wonder Warren Buffett loves bank stocks.

The legendary billionaire investor has more than 30% of his $170 billion portfolio at Berkshire Hathaway (NYSE: BRK-A) (NYSE: BRK.B) dedicated to this one industry.

The reason why is simple: Bank stocks possess many of the important Buffett must-haves to be considered for his portfolio. First, banking institutions serve an important societal need that will never go away. Second, banking business models are relatively simple to understand, a key requirement of Buffett’s investing philosophy. Third, despite the health of many banks improving dramatically since the 2008 financial crisis, some bank stocks are still trading at a bargain — a key indicator that now is the best time to invest. Let’s examine the basics of bank stock investing, the history of bank stocks, and how to know when you’ve found one worth investing in.
