Top Warren Buffett Stocks To Own Right Now

Apple hit a new all-time high on Friday, briefly surpassing its previous high of $183.50.

The stock was pushed higher by news that Warren Buffett had bought 75 million shares in the first quarter.

The stock is now roughly $20 per share short of a $1 trillion market cap.

The Dow dropped 100 points at the open; tech giants Amazon, Alphabet, Netflix and Facebook all started trading in the red — but Apple traded nearly 4 percent up.

Buffett is in Omaha for the annual meeting of Berkshire Hathaway shareholders, and he hasn’t been shy about his bull case for Apple.

The legendary tech investor revealed his firm bought a stunning 75 million Apple shares in first quarter and said obsessing over iPhone X sales in the near term “totally misses the point” on the stock.

Advisors’ Opinion:

  • [By Neha Chamaria]

    Shares of hardware flooring retailer Lumber Liquidators Holdings (NYSE:LL) tanked in July, declining 20.6%, according to data provided by S&P Global Market Intelligence. Almost all the losses came after the company released its second-quarter numbers on the last day of the month.

  • [By Jason Hall]

    It may not feel as if it can get much worse for Lumber Liquidators Holdings Inc. (NYSE:LL) shareholders. The flooring retailer reported second-quarter results on July 31, and Mr. Market added more injury to an already painful year, sending shares down more than 20% by the time the market closed. And while the company continues to face challenges, including relatively weak traffic growth and high expenses, it probably had a better second quarter than the market’s reaction would indicate. 

  • [By Logan Wallace]

    Lumber Liquidators Holdings Inc (NYSE:LL) has received an average rating of “Hold” from the fourteen brokerages that are presently covering the company, MarketBeat.com reports. Two analysts have rated the stock with a sell recommendation, eight have assigned a hold recommendation and three have issued a buy recommendation on the company. The average 1-year price objective among brokerages that have covered the stock in the last year is $27.11.

Hot Gold Stocks To Invest In 2019

Do you want to become an inspired leader in 2017—one who makes a big difference in your team, your organization, and society?

A good place to start is to review the qualities and practices of exceptional leaders, which have remained the same since the beginning of civilization, as summarized in a book M.A. Soupios and I co-authored, The Ten Golden Rules of Leadership.

Here are 12 quotes from the book that provide a glimpse into the qualities and practices of great leaders:

Skills and experience might land you a leadership position, but they don’t make you a true leader.

Leadership comes from inside—and the greatest leaders first question themselves before they tackle the world around them. To aid in this critical interrogation.

The “fate” of organizations is not based on the stars. The character of an organization’s leadership determines a company’s destiny.

The assumption of authority brings out the leader’s inner world.
