Top 10 Warren Buffett Stocks To Buy Right Now

Shutterstock

Pretend you’re Warren Buffett. You’re in your 80s. You’re worth over $70 billion. Obviously your children will receive a huge inheritance.

Not so fast.

Warren’s view on inherited wealth has always been that he will give his children “enough money so they would feel they can do anything but not so much that they could do nothing.” So, for example, he gave his son Peter enough money to pay off some equipment loans for his music business as well as the mortgage on his $194,000 home. (At the same time, though, he has heavily endowed his children’s independent charitable foundations, in 2006 giving each $1 billion to pursue their own philanthropic goals.)

Granted, you may not have the assets Buffett has accumulated. (Who does?)  But still: the amount of money you leave your children can have a major impact on their lives, both positively and negatively, and so can the manner in which you leave it. Buffett’s goal is to ensure his children live engaged and productive lives. Your goals may be different, and a variety of estate planning tools can help you achieve those goals.

The challenge for REITs in 2018 is that higher interest rates are likely to impact share price performance; however, to combat market conditions, many REITs are beginning to announce dividend increases.

So far in 2018, REITs have under-performed, causing shares to decline and dividend yields to increase. Many of our favorite companies have announced full year 2017 results, validating the argument that the market has over-reacted to rising rates.

&l;p class=&q;tweet_line&q;&g;There are reasons for optimism regarding economic growth in 2018, such as tax reform and GDP growth. In addition, most REITs have been preparing for accelerated interest rates by reducing leverage and reliance on secured debt.

Top 10 Stocks To Watch Right Now: Fortress Investment Group LLC(FIG)

Advisors’ Opinion:

  • [By Dan Caplinger]

    The stock market continued to climb sharply on Wednesday, sending major market benchmarks to record highs yet again and propelling the Dow Jones Industrials up more than 100 points. Economic data continued to support the notion that the U.S. economy remains strong, and rising inflation levels led many to conclude that the Federal Reserve is more likely than ever to follow through on its promise to keep lifting short-term interest rates in 2017. Rising bond yields reflected investors’ reluctance to hold onto fixed-income investments in anticipation of higher rates, prompting some to shift assets into the stock market. Several companies also reported, andFortress Investment Group (NYSE:FIG), Editas Medicine (NASDAQ:EDIT), and Hertz Global Holdings (NYSE:HTZ) were among the top performers on the day. Below, we’ll look more closely at these stocks to tell you why they did so well.

Advisors’ Opinion:

  • [By Matthew Briar]

    Looking for a quick, money-making trading idea? Put FORM Holdings Corp. (NASDAQ:FH) on your watchlist, if not yet in your portfolio. FH shares are knocking on the door of a breakout move, and one more nudge could do the trick.

    There are a couple of factors in play here. One of the is the converging wedge pattern that’s developed after the October-December finally stabilized. The upper boundary of that wedge at $2.40 has been tested several times since late last year, but FORM Holdings could never get past the hurdle.
