100 Promising Stocks That Big Investment Gurus Bought

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. I talk about investors like George Soros and Warren Buffett. They all have one thing in common: Their average return beats the market and if they invest, the market follows.
