Best Warren Buffett Stocks To Own For 2019

Is volatility finally back! You bet your assets it is. The Dow fell well over 600 points into the closing bell, and the major equity indexes followed suit. As a reminder, investors have been stating openly that they wanted a big pullback so they could buy more of their favorite stocks. The only problem is that most retail investors usually freeze during sell-offs because they are scary while they are happening.

24/7 Wall St. wanted to get into some of the major index readings and market movers. First, perhaps the words of Warren Buffett should be considered during a big sell-off: be fearful when others are greedy, and be greedy when others are fearful.

Last weekend we wrote our daily email subscribers how surprising it was that the Dow Jones Industrial Average had already crossed 26,400 and the S&P 500 hit 2,855 as our official baseline targets for 2018. We warned when these were issued that our baseline targets felt too conservative, but it was still surprising. Then the market selling began shortly thereafter.
