Top Warren Buffett Stocks To Watch For 2019

Warren Buffett-led Berkshire Hathaway (NYSE:BRK-A) (NYSE:BRK-B), in addition to its dozens of businesses, also owns a portfolio of 47 different common stocks, many of which were hand-selected by Buffett himself. And, many of these stocks pay dividends. In fact, from all of the stocks in Berkshire’s portfolio, the company is generating more than $6,700 in dividend income every minute.

Berkshire Hathaway’s dividend income

During the second quarter, Berkshire’s holdings will pay out a combined total of $882,004,712 in expected dividend income. There are 91 days in the quarter, so this translates to $9,692,359 per day, or just under $6,731 per minute in dividend income.

To be fair, this makes two big assumptions. First, it assumes Berkshire’s portfolio holdings won’t change at all before or during the second quarter. And it assumes none of the dividend stocks will change their payouts, which some likely will. In reality, the dividend income received by Berkshire is likely to be even higher than these figures, since most of his stocks have great records of increasing dividends.

Top Warren Buffett Stocks To Watch For 2019: Majesco Entertainment Company(COOL)

Advisors’ Opinion:

  • [By Maxx Chatsko]

    Shares of PolarityTE (NASDAQ:COOL) couldn’t get a lift today after the company announced it had been added to the Russell 2000 and Russell 3000 Indexes. That’s because notorious short-seller Citron Research released a report calling the company a fraud and asked for the SEC to “halt this stock immediately.”

    The stock market had a mildly positive day on Friday, and gains of between 0.1% and 0.3% were common for most of the major benchmark indexes. Without any outright hostility among leaders of the G-7 nations in their summit in Canada’s Quebec City, investors seemed content to go into the weekend with confidence in the prospects for the U.S. economy and its biggest businesses. Yet some individual companies had bad news that held their shares back from participating in the rally. Nabors Industries (NYSE:NBR), PolarityTE (NASDAQ:COOL), and Evolus (NASDAQ:EOLS) were among the worst performers on the day. Here’s why they did so poorly.

Top Warren Buffett Stocks To Watch For 2019: Westinghouse Air Brake Technologies Corporation(WAB)

Advisors’ Opinion:

  • [By Lee Samaha]

    On a more positive note, Flannery appears to be making ground on some key long-term objectives.

    Management feels “good” about the ability of the healthcare segment to outperform, according to Miller. Flannery claimed GE was in “active discussions” on some aviation platforms, current & lighting and distributed power, while an announcement on the divestment of transportation (rumored to be a target of Wabtec (NYSE:WAB)) is expected by the end of the second quarter. Structural cost reductions are now expected to be above the $2 billion target outlined on the investor day presentation in November 2017. Flannery outlined that he would lead the creation of a new operating system for GE based on “lean, six sigma ad agile” involving “continuous improvement and customer experience.”

    As a reminder, GE has promised $20 billion of asset sales, and the commentary on the earnings call was reassuring, particularly as the first deal (healthcare IT assets) was underwhelming.

    Earnings season begins this week, withWynn Resorts, Limited (NASDAQ:WYNN) reporting on Tuesday, April 24, Las Vegas Sands Corp. (NYSE:LVS)on Wednesday, and MGM Resorts International (NYSE:MGM)on Thursday. Caesars Entertainment (NASDAQ:CZR) will report on May 2 with Melco Resorts (NASDAQ:MLCO) to follow later in May.

    As 2018 unfolds, revenues in the Cotai Strip continue to grow. Wynn Resorts (NASDAQ:WYNN) is winning significant market share with its newer Wynn Palace resort, where revenue was up 47.2% in the first quarter. Las Vegas Sands (NYSE:LVS) is holding its own with its four Cotai resorts: They are achieving similar growth rates to the 20.5% of Macau’s gaming market overall. So if Wynn is taking market share, and Las Vegas Sands is holding steady, at least one of the other four concessionaires has to be losing ground. And by the looks of its recent first-quarter earnings release, Melco Resorts is one of the losers.
