Best Warren Buffett Stocks To Invest In 2019

Berkshire Hathaway recently reported its equity holdings through Form 13-F and caught the market by surprise with some additions and sales.

As the market fixates on individual purchases and sales, I’ve found looking more broadly at the portfolio reveals valuable insight into Warren Buffett’s outlook on stocks.

In fact, Buffett’s portfolio is surprisingly concentrated in just three industries.

Combining this with position changes in individual stocks, investors may be able to get ahead of The Oracle of Omaha by investing in best-of-breed companies within the industries.

What’s In Warren Buffett’s Portfolio?
Buffett took the lead in 1965 and has rewarded investors ever since. Returns on shares of Berkshire Hathaway have climbed 20% annually over the last 38 years, easily beating the S&P 500.

    Shares ofSears Holding Corp(NASDAQ:SHLD) were heading south today alongside other department store chains afterDeutsche Bankissued a negative report about the sector, pushing several department store names downward, including Macy’s,Kohl’s, andJ.C. Penney. As the weakest of the bunch, Sears fell the furthest. The stock closed down 9.4%.

  • [By Jon C. Ogg]

    Sears Holdings Corp. (NASDAQ: SHLD) is one of those dying companies that just refuses to accept defeat. The company made a filing with the U.S. Securities and Exchange Commission (SEC) signaling details of private exchange offers for notes that were addressed in January, but the struggling department store operator also gave an update to its fiscal fourth quarter.

  • [By Chuck Saletta]

    The third stock I’d hate to buy right now is former retail titan Sears Holdings (NASDAQ:SHLD). In many respects, Sears Holdings is a dead retailer walking, kept “alive” only through the cash infusions from liquidating its once-great assets. It unloaded its Craftsmanbrand of tools last year to stay afloat, and it has even resorted to selling its DieHard batteries on Amazon.com just to keep some cash coming in.

  • [By ]

    The fact is Amazon continues to exert insane amounts of pressure on the weak (J.C. Penney (JCP) , Sears (SHLD) ) while also unearthing new ways to win business despite formidable rivals. The pressure is likely to decimate the mall by this time in 2023. It’s nuts. Also nuts is how CEO Jeff Bezos could turn on the profit spigot at the drop of the dime, this time around probably doing so to shove it in Donald Trump’s face.

    Never forget the people component when picking a company to invest in. At the end of the day, the financials reported every three months are a byproduct of the decisions people make day in and day out throughout an organization. Having the right people could be the deciding factor between winning, losing or treading water. It’s why a Sears (SHLD) is dying, and Action Alerts PLUS holding Amazon (AMZN) is thriving.

    In early 2017, Sears Holdings (NASDAQ:SHLD) sold the rights to its storied Craftsman tool brand to Stanley Black & Decker (NYSE:SWK).

Investors haven’t forgotten about some of the potential pitfalls that could derail the recovery, including both geopolitical and macroeconomic concerns.

Top 10 Casino Stocks To Invest In Right Now

The stock market climbed sharply on Thursday, responding well to favorable earnings results from several corners of the market. Major benchmarks were up 1% to 2%, with particularly good performance from the Nasdaq Composite thanks to the tech sector’s outperformance during the day. Yet some stocks suffered from bad news that cast doubt on companies’ ability to benefit from generally favorable business conditions. MGM Resorts International (NYSE:MGM), Arch Coal (NYSE:ARCH), and LendingTree (NASDAQ:TREE) were among the worst performers on the day. Here’s why they did so poorly.

MGM falls despite Cotai opening

Shares of MGM Resorts International lost almost 9% after the company reported its first-quarter financial results. The casino giant said that net revenue was down 1% compared to year-earlier levels, with revenue per available room falling 4.3% at its key Las Vegas Strip properties. Casino revenue was up just 2%, and CEO Jim Murren pointed to the likelihood of continued weakness at Mandalay Bay in the wake of the tragic events that happened there last autumn. Disruptions at Monte Carlo and the cancellation of a major boxing event will also weigh on future results. Even with solid performance from its stake in MGM China, investors aren’t certain that the casino resort operator’s business strategy will yield the results they want to see in the long term.

    Third Point’s first-quarter letter to investors outlined the position in United Technologies and the rationale behind Loeb’s belief that breaking up the company is the best way forward for investors. For reference, the multi-industrial company comprises four segments: Otis elevators; UTC climate controls & security (CCS), specializing in air-conditioning, refrigeration and security; UTC aerospace systems (UTAS); and Pratt & Whitney, maker of aircraft engines. Loeb’s key points are as follows:

    The company’s one-size-fits-all approach has led to a “well-documented history of poor management execution.” A spinoff would create value in the manner of recent precedents in the industrial sector, and allow for more-focused management of the newly created companies. The failure of the market to value United Technologies appropriately to its intrinsic value reflects how investors value aerospace companies (with a long-term perspective, which acceptsnear-term losses on multiyear programs) and multi-industrial companies (by using multiples of next year’s earnings). Shareholders are best served by splitting up the company into three separate ones, specifically Otis; CCS; and an aerospace company built from UTAS, Pratt & Whitney, and the impending acquisition of Rockwell Collins (NYSE:COL).

    To this, I would add that there’s a bewildering number of investment decisions you need to make before buying United Technologies stock right now. For example, you might be worried about growth in construction in China (Otis), or long-term prospects for aerospace suppliers against margin pressure from Boeing and Airbus (UTAS, Rockwell Collins) trying to cut costs or compete directly, or even margin pressure on air-conditioning products (CCS) from rising raw-material costs. All of which give you a good reason not to buy the stock.

    First, CEO Greg Hayes has promised investors he was looking at strategic options that could be taken after the acquisition of Rockwell Collins (NYSE:COL). As discussed previously, investors need to make a multitude of risk/reward calculations, across all four of its segments, before feeling fully comfortable buying the stock.
