3 Most Preferred Dividend Stocks from 49 Super Guru Investors

I love to see how the big investors act on the market. Some of them have a really interesting and creative investing strategy which works only with huge amounts of capital.

Some hedge funds play with money and try to boost its return by ignoring a good diversification. But if they know the business and management team the risk might be lower as for desk research investors like us.

However, each month I publish a little list 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 655 stocks within the recent half year.

In my view, it’s a good tool to look at the activities of guru investors in the market because they have big money in their pockets and if they invest combined, they could change the market very easily.

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. I think that they have noticed the huge cash reserves of Apple and other stocks. Most of them are very profitable and grow further despite not having new technologies developed.

Here are the most favored dividend stocks of 49 super investors:
