Best Warren Buffett Stocks To Watch Right Now

Sometimes identifying the best stocks to buy can be difficult, but you could do a lot worse than check out the stocks selected by one of the world’s wealthiest hedge fund managers — George Soros.

Self-made Soros fled Hungary and funded his way through an economics degree by working as a railway porter and waiter. Years of successful investing gave him a net worth of $25.2 billion and the no. 1 ranking on Forbes’ hedge fund manager rich list. (Warren Buffett, who has a whopping $75 billion net worth, wins the no.1 title for the wider finance and investments community). In 1992, Soros shorted the British pound and reportedly made a profit of $1 billion. He became known as the man who broke the Bank of England.

Now we can track the latest trades of his family office, Soros Fund Management. Just-released SEC forms reveal a valuable glimpse into which stocks Soros likes, and which he doesn’t. I looked back over 2017 and pinpointed Soros’ best stock picks this year. These are the stocks that this legendary hedge fund manager is most bullish on. Note that Soros has just shifted an incredible $18 billion from the fund to charity. Following the move, the fund manages about $4 billion in portfolio assets.
