But the 86-year-old chairman of Berkshire Hathaway (BRK.B), who admits to not even owning an iPhone, is coming around to the investment potential of technology shares. He might have been nudged along by the fact that the two mature tech companies in which Berkshire has taken substantial stakes in recent years both pay solid dividends. While Berkshire doesn’t sport a dividend of its own, Buffett has long favored owning stocks offering steady cash payouts. Here’s a closer look at two dividend-paying tech stocks owned by Buffett.

Top 10 Warren Buffett Stocks To Buy For 2018: Ethan Allen Interiors Inc.(ETH)

Advisors’ Opinion:

  • [By Dan Caplinger]

    Wednesday was a strong day for the stock market, as the Dow finished up nearly 100 points and the S&P 500 and Nasdaq both posted gains as well. Investors remained generally upbeat about the prospects for the U.S. economy in 2017, and a rise in crude oil prices helped lift the energy sector higher during the market session. Yet comments during a press conference from President-elect Donald Trump weighed on the healthcare sector, and some individual stocks took particularly hard hits. Among the worst performers were Perrigo (NYSE:PRGO), Novadaq Technologies (NASDAQ:NVDQ), and Ethan Allen Interiors (NYSE:ETH). Below, we’ll look more closely at these stocks to tell you why they did so poorly.

Top 10 Warren Buffett Stocks To Buy For 2018: WGL Holdings Inc(WGL)

Advisors’ Opinion:

  • [By Shauna O’Brien]

    Brean Capital reported on Friday that it has upgraded natural gas utility company WGL Holdings Inc (WGL).

    The firm has raised its rating on WGL from “Hold” to “Buy,” and has given the company a $46 price target. This price target suggests a 12% increase from the stock’s current price of $40.62. The upgrade was primarily based on valuation and future investment opportunities.

    “Like many utilities in the gas LDC space, the shares of WGL Holdings have come off recent highs and are now trading at a level we consider attractive,” analyst Michael Gaugler comments. “Beyond valuation, we consider the recent announcement of conditional approval of Dominion’s Cove Point facility for LNG export as a positive development in terms of future investment opportunities, given the company’s one-third interest in the Commonwealth Pipeline project, which we believe will be revisited due to future increased demand.”

    WGL Holdings shares were mostly flat during pre-market trading Friday. The stock has been mostly flat YTD.

Top 10 Warren Buffett Stocks To Buy For 2018: Urban Outfitters Inc.(URBN)

Advisors’ Opinion:

  • [By Ben Levisohn]

    The retail bubble, so dubbed by Urban Outfitters’ (URBN) CEO, claimed another victim today, as Express (EXPR) became the latest retailer to get hammered after releasing its earnings.

    Karlie Kloss!!! Getty Images

    It wasn’t the earnings, so much, as the guidance that’s sinking Express’s shares.Express reported a profit of 28 cents, in line with analyst forecasts, but predicted earnings of 65 cents to 73 cents in 2017, below forecasts for 82 cents, according to FactSet. Shares of Express have dropped 11% to $9.51 today, while Urban Outfitters fell 2.6% to $24.75. The SPDR S&P Retail ETF (XRT) gained 1% to $42.38.

    MKM’s Roxanne Meyer sees tailwinds–and headwinds–for Express’s stock:

    There are several catalysts that have potential to support improving fundamentals, but more materially in 2H and beyond: 1) reduced SKU count (down 20% in women’s/10% in men’s), which means EXPR will be investing in greater depth instead of breadth; 2) benefits from new systems should begin to bear fruit in 2H; 3) potential sales lift from the loyalty program relaunch (realistically a 2H opportunity); 4) launch of petites online in spring and launch of a collection collaborated with Karlie Kloss in April (unclear as to how material a driver); and 5) lower IMU/AUC in 2H from sourcing initiatives. However, these are balanced by: 1) a down-trending Portofino tops collection, which we believe has historically been meaningful to 1Q results; 2) pressure from higher wages and incentive comp (will require a MSD comp to leverage SG&A); and 3) merchandise margin not expected to improve until 2H17, despite corrective actions to assortment (mainly driven by compares).

    Any wonder she rates it Neutral?

Top 10 Warren Buffett Stocks To Buy For 2018: Boeing Company (The)(BA)

Advisors’ Opinion:

  • [By Ben Levisohn]

    Boeing (BA) shares have been on fire for six months now–they’ve gained 36% during that period–and they’ve been so strong that not even a Tweet from President-elect Donald J. Trump can keep its shares down. But does Boeing have room to run?

    Agence France-Presse/Getty Images

    Deutsche Bank analystMyles Walton contends it does. He explains why:

    Last March, we wrote aboutthe favorable historical correlation of BA stock performance with reductions in Boeing Commercial Airplane’s workforce. In 8 of the 9 years from 1997-’15 when BCA cut headcount, BA outperformed the S&P 500 by an avg of 24%. In 2016, despite an 8% headcount cut at BCA, BA narrowly underperformed the S&P500 by 200bps because of significant relative losses in 1Q16. Importantly, through Feb ’17, BCA employment is down 2%+, well ahead of expectations for the year. Coupled with aggressive 1Q share repurchase and one of the biggest winners of corporate tax reform, we see shares continuing to claw higher. Reiterate Buy on upside to new PT.

    If you’re curious, that new price target is $205. Boeing’s shares have dropped 0.7% to $180.75 at 2:40 p.m. today, leaving 13% upside in the stock.
