After a promising start to 2018, major stock indexes forfeited their yearly gains over the past few weeks amid heightened concerns about a looming trade war between the U.S. and China. Now, as investors look to rebound from what has been a tough stretch for many, it could prove prudent to dig deep into the tried-and-true strategies of Wall Street’s top figures.
One of those top performers is, of course, the legendary Warren Buffett. Dubbed the “Oracle of Omaha” for his decades of success, Buffett has amassed billions of dollars through a meticulous brand of value investing that touts patience and confidence. Simply put, Buffett and his Berkshire Hathaway (BRK.B ) firm are icons of the investing world.
Berkshire Hathaway’s U.S. long stock portfolio holds positions in 45 individual stocks, with the five-largest of those positions accounting for roughly 62% of its total value. This portfolio is tracked by a large swath of investors looking to mimic the success of Berkshire’s legendary CEO.

Top 5 Warren Buffett Stocks To Watch Right Now: Plug Power Inc.(PLUG)

In case of QCOM stock, the shorter term 50-day simple moving average (SMA) is all set to break above its long-term 200-day SMA, separated by just a few cents, which are also the most commonly used moving averages for ‘golden cross’. Investors should also note that this is the first time in almost 18 months this bullish crossover is set to occur. And, the last time Qualcomm stock made ‘golden cross’, it set out on a rally. However, a word of caution for investors, the current Relative Strength Index (RSI) reading of 76.17, which is well above the commonly used overbought threshold of 70, suggests that the stock is in overbought territory, hinting that the upside could be limited. Though the Bollinger Bands indicator is not flashing an overbought signal and generally the combination of these two indicators is considered as a strong signal.
Is a bottom in sight for Plug Power Inc (NASDAQ:PLUG) stock?
The sell-off inalternative energy technology company Plug Power Inc (NASDAQ:PLUG) doesn’t seem to stop after its Q3 earnings release last week. Plug Power stock dropped another 5.8% yesterday and has lost more than 25% of its value after the earnings announcement. The Latham, New York-based company delivered a non-GAAP earnings loss of 4 cents, which was in-line with the analyst estimates on revenue of $61.43 million, bettering the expectations by $5.64 million. The revised full-year adjusted gross margin falling below the company’s previous guidance of 8% to 12% also had not gone down well with the investors partially contributing to the sell-off. Now, if one take’s a look at the PLUG stock technical chart, they would be rather disappointed as the downtrend is likely to continue for some time now going by the technical set up.
