Top 10 Low Price Stocks To Buy For 2019

Following billionaire investor Warren Buffett into stocks he owns has often been a profitable strategy over the past few decades. But reversing the order—buying a stock before Buffett buys it—can potentially be even more rewarding.

Quiz: How Well Do You Really Know Warren Buffett?

With that in mind, we went prospecting for companies that Berkshire Hathaway (BRK-B, $137), Buffett’s holding company, has been buying recently, and four stocks that Buffett doesn’t hold but we think he ought to buy. We looked for the things he favors: com­panies that are leaders in their industries, that have a strong commitment to sharing profit with investors, and whose stocks sell for relatively low prices compared with earnings and underlying asset value.

A few caveats: First, even Buffett makes mistakes. Second, many of Berkshire’s picks are now made by Buffett’s two investing deputies, Todd Combs and Ted Weschler, not Buffett himself. And third, anyone guessing which stocks might be attractive to Berkshire is doing just that—guessing.

In fact, the beverage giant just approved its 57th consecutive annual dividend increase, bumping it up to $0.40 per share and a juicy yield of 3.5%. But if investors are looking for even bigger dividend yields for their portfolios, three Motley Fool contributors suggest taking a peek at Macy’s (NYSE:M), Oaktree Capital Group (NYSE:OAK), and General Motors (NYSE:GM). Here’s why.

    In this Market Foolery podcast, host Chris Hill has a special guest — Foolish investor-at-large Tim Hanson — and they lead off with a discussion of the annual letter, released Wednesday, from billionaire investing guru Howard Marks of Oaktree Capital (NYSE:OAK). In it, Marks expressed concern about the number of questionable deals happening in this low-interest environment, as an excess of optimism and high risk-tolerance send capital toward assets it should probably shun at current prices. Then Chris and Tim respond to a podcast listener who’s wondering whether he should keep holding on to his General Motors shares. Beyond that, there’s a timely retrospective on Tim’s time at the Fool, and an equally timely debate on a divisive and controversial question: Are fun-size Halloween candies “fun” or a travesty?
