Best Warren Buffett Stocks To Watch For 2019

Warren Buffett’s penchant for picking great stocks for Berkshire Hathaway’s (NYSE:BRK-A) (NYSE:BRK-B) portfolio makes his quarterly stock picks must-know news for every long-term investor. Luckily, Buffett is required to file a 13F report with the Securities and Exchange Commission every quarter showing what he’s been buying, and that makes following in his footsteps easier. Last quarter, his top buys were U.S. Bancorp (NYSE:USB), Apple, Inc. (NASDAQ:AAPL), and Teva Pharmaceutical Industries (NYSE:TEVA). Should you buy these stocks for your portfolio, too?

Bigger bets in banking

Wells Fargo’s been Warren Buffett’s biggest bank holding for a long time, but he’s shown a willingness to invest in Wells Fargo’s competitors, too. The Bank of New York Mellon (NYSE:BK) was his favorite bank to buy in Q4 2017, but in Q1 2018, U.S. Bancorp was his favorite. He bought 3.8 million U.S. Bancorp shares last quarter, increasing his position to 90.8 million shares, and now, Berkshire Hathaway is U.S. Bancorp’s third largest institutional investor.
