4 Highest Yielding Stocks Mostly Picked by Stock Market Pros

Big investors are sometimes better informed about the issues of a company. They know where to find low hanging fruits and to make profits. It could make sense for us normal investors to observe the activities from the big investors in order to get a feeling about the good and bad companies, stocks that investors love and hate.

Each month, I develop a little screen about the largest stock buys from 49 super investors. I analyze how often a stock was bought over the recent six months and ranked them in my 100 best guru buy list. All super gurus combined bought 631 stocks within the recent half year; they seem to be more bullish.

In my view, it’s a good tool to look at the activities of the guru investors in the market because they have huge amounts of capital and if they invest combined, they can change the market very easy. Their attitude to stocks is also lightning the way to return, not always but sometimes because the media notices the portfolio changes of the hedge fund managers and create additional publicity.

Technology is still the place to be for the investment gurus. The top three results from the guru 100 best buy list are all tech stocks: Oracle, Apple and Microsoft.

And investors bet more on dividends: Now, 80 percent of the equities they bought pay a dividend. But most of them are low yielding stocks, with around 11 stocks yielding over 3 percent. Investment gurus still look for growth and don’t seek for high cash compensation.

Here are the highest yielding results:
