Hot Warren Buffett Stocks To Own Right Now

Berkshire Hathaway CEO Warren Buffett (Trades, Portfolio) extolled many of his portfolio holdings for repurchasing their shares, “some quite aggressively,” in his 2016 annual letter. Buffett, who is price-conscious and won’t repurchase his own companies’ shares at more than 1.2 times book value, a statement he last made good on in 2012, approved of his investees’ buybacks because he believes their shares “have in most cases been underpriced.”

Hot Warren Buffett Stocks To Own Right Now: AbbVie Inc.(ABBV)

Advisors’ Opinion:

  • [By Cory Renauer]

    Gilead Sciences isn’t expecting any top-line revenue growth in 2019 because expiring U.S. patents for Letairis and Ranexa could lead to a loss of around $1.2 billion. The company also expects around $900 million in lost sales because of competition with AbbVie (NYSE:ABBV) for a share of a hepatitis C antiviral (HCV) market that’s been steadily shrinking. Total HCV sales plummeted from $9.1 billion in 2017 to just $3.7 billion in 2018, and Gilead’s new cellular cancer therapy, Yescarta, is proving more difficult to sell than anticipated.
