100 Most Bought Stocks By Investment Gurus

Today I would like to produce a little screen about the biggest 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 509 stocks within the recent half year.

It’s a good tool to look at the activities of the big players in the market. They have huge amounts of capital and if they invest combined, they can change the market. Their attitude to stocks is also lightning the way to return, not always but sometimes because the media notices the move of the hedge fund manager and creates additional publicity.

The three best results are still technology companies: Oracle, Microsoft and Apple. 77 stocks from the list pay dividends. Investment gurus don’t care about the dividend. They are more likely interested in long-term capital gains. Only 10 stocks yield above 3 percent.

Here are my favorites:
