Our Ultimate Stock-Pickers Top 10 Dividend-Yielding Stocks
Our top managers' focus on high-quality dividend-paying stocks remains pertinent as yield is difficult to find in a period of historically low interest rates.
By Eric Compton | Stock Analyst
The vast majority of our Ultimate Stock-Pickers have never been mistaken for dividend investors. That said, a handful of them-- Amana Income Investor (AMANX) , Columbia Dividend Income A (LBSAX) , Oakmark Equity & Income I (OAKBX) , and Parnassus Core Equity Investor (PRBLX)--are more focused on income-producing stocks in their pursuit of investment gains. We would also argue that Warren Buffett at Berkshire Hathaway (BRK.A) /(BRK.B) has shifted his investment portfolio to be more of an income generator, with the firm's four largest stock holdings--narrow-moat rated Kraft Heinz (KHC) and IBM (IBM) and wide-moat Wells Fargo (WFC) and Coca-Cola (KO), which accounted for close to two thirds of the insurer's equity investment portfolio at the end of June--all yielding more than the S&P 500 TR Index, which is currently yielding 2.1%.
