Our Ultimate Stock-Pickers’ Top 10 Dividend-Yielding Stocks
Our top managers' high-quality dividend stocks reveal some new names worth highlighting.
By Joshua Aguilar | Associate Equity Analyst
The vast majority of our Ultimate Stock-Pickers have never been mistaken for dividend investors. That said, a handful of them-- Amana Income (AMANX), Columbia Dividend Income (LBSAX), Oakmark Equity And Income (OAKBX), and Parnassus Core Equity Investor (PRBLX)--are more focused on income-producing stocks in their pursuit of investment gains. Warren Buffett at Berkshire Hathaway (BRK.A)/(BRK.B) has also spoken affirmatively of returning capital to shareholders and is not against investing in and holding higher yielding names. Four of Berkshire's top five holdings--narrow-moat rated Kraft Heinz (KHC), wide-moat Wells Fargo (WFC) and Coca-Cola (KO), and narrow-moat IBM (IBM)--all yield more than the S&P 500 TR, which is currently yielding 1.8%, and currently account for over 50% of the insurer's equity investment portfolio.
