Stocks with Recent Engagements by Investment Professionals Researched by Dividend Yield – Stock, Capital, Investment. Investment gurus are asset or fund managers with big amounts of cash under management. They became popular by big returns and spectacular investment strategies — investors like George Soros and Warren Buffett.
