4 Best Yielding Dividend Stocks Warren Buffett Likes and Buys

Buying dividend growth stocks is a popular and proven way to make money. A great investor who followed this approach in a very public way is Warren Buffett. I recently published a full portfolio overview with his latest moves on my blog.

Sometimes I get inspired by his investments when I don’t have enough ideas of what to buy. Today I will show you the best-yielding stocks of his portfolio: I made a list of his best-yielding shares from his latest fund. Of his 41 stock holdings, 29 pay dividends. The highest-yielding stock is still GlaxoSmithKline (GSK), a British drug company. Its dividend yield is 6.12 percent. The top stocks are a mix of drugs, newspapers and electric utilities.

In total, he own 41 stocks with a total portfolio worth of USD75.3 billion. Buffett bought two new companies and added to 10 additional stocks in his fund. The most important buy was Wells Fargo and DaVita HealthCare Partners. Both stocks affected his portfolio by more than 0.5 percent.
