If you know a little about the stock market then I guess you know that Warren Buffett is probably the greatest investor of all times. With a personal fortune estimated at over 55 billions US dollars he’s almost always been in the top 5 richest man on the planet.
Warren did not inherit that fortune. He built it through frugality and intelligent investing.
While most people know him as a value and buy and hold investor and while his company Berkshire-Hathaway (BRK-A, BRK-B) doesn’t even pay a dividend to its shareholders, it is not a secret that Warren Buffett loves dividends.
Here’s the list of all the dividend growth stocks held in his portfolio :
|Johnson & Johnson||JNJ|
|Procter & Gamble||PG|
|Deere & Co||DE|
|International Business Machine||IBM|
|National oilwell Varco||NOV|
|Suncor Energy inc||SU|
