“Look at market fluctuations as your friend rather than your enemy; profit from folly rather than participate in it.”
– Warren Buffett
It’s tough to argue with the”Oracle of Omaha.”
AndWarren Buffettis right: Investor “folly” creates some of the biggest money-making opportunities you’ll find in stocks.
Just look at the go-nowhere market we’ve been seeing in recent weeks. Stocks may plummet one day only to soar the next – all because of the bearish or bullish economic statisticdu jour– but they’ve stayed in a very tight range for close to eight weeks.
When we reach the end of this year, I believe that the tech investors who stayed in the market – and selected the best stocks, with my help – will see that they’ve been rewarded for their courage. Those who spent 2016 on the sidelines will be penalized for their caution.

Top 5 Warren Buffett Stocks To Buy Right Now: Bayer Aktiengesellschaft (BAYRY)
- [By Maxx Chatsko]
BeforeBayer(NASDAQOTH: BAYRY)arrived onto the scene, I viewedMonsanto(NYSE: MON)as an intriguing growth stock. It has a rich history of delivering value to shareholders and continues to hold a dominant technological edge over key competitors in crop protection products, seeds, and traits. While little has changed its promising pipeline and portfolio, the pending acquisition throws a wrench in anyone’s plans to start or add to a position. Uncertainty stemming from the merger provides several terrible reasons to buy Monsanto at this time.

Fertilizers are only one input when it comes to farming, the equipment business has suffered, and seed suppliers are certainly concerned. Perhaps that is why another merger occurred last week between Monsanto (NYSE:MON) and Bayer (OTCPK:BAYRY). Bayer AG agreed to buy the U.S. seed manufacturer for $128 per share or approximately $47 billion creating a mammoth company with a combined value of almost $134.5 billion. The $128 per share price works out to a valuation of around 16 times earnings, which is cheap in a market where the average of S&P 500 stocks is trading at over 26.5 times earnings. However, the weakness in the agricultural sector caused disappointing earnings for Monsanto in the third quarter and a downbeat outlook for the future caused MON to accept Bayer’s bid. Bayer bought Monsanto at a low price, lowering the risk of the transaction for the German health care and agricultural giant.

This type of spin-off is not uncommon among German companies, as they streamline their portfolios to focus on the where they have more competitive advantages in the long term. For instance, in the recent past, Siemens (OTCPK:SIEGY) has split out Osram (OTC:OSAGY) and Bayer (OTCPK:BAYRY) has performed the spin-off of Covestro (OTCPK:CVXTY), something that Rheinmetall is likely to do in the near future because its auto unit has reached peak margins, and therefore this is the best time to spin-off the business.

You can torture the data many ways, of course, and there were some pharma price increases in the US, but apparently, they were not especially large. What hurt were discounting, especially for Xarelto, a Bayer (OTCPK:BAYRY) oral anticoagulant which JNJ markets in the US; and the diabetes Invokana line.
