5 Global Buffett-Munger Stocks With High Dividend Yields

Stocks with predictable earnings growth from Korea, India and Africa

According to the Buffett-Munger Screener, a Premium feature of GuruFocus, five companies based in Korea, India and Africa with a GuruFocus business predictability rank of five stars and a high dividend yield are Korea Environment Technology Co. Ltd. (XKRX:029960), Power Grid Corp. of India Ltd. (BOM:532898), Safaricom PLC (NAI:SCOM), Soulbrain Holdings Co. Ltd. (XKRX:036830) and PSG Konsult Ltd. (JSE:KST).

The Buffett-Munger Screener applies Berkshire Hathaway Inc. (BRK.A)(BRK.B) co-managers Warren Buffett (Trades, Portfolio) and Charlie Munger (Trades, Portfolio)'s four-criterion approach to value investing. Buffett said that Berkshire looks for four key attributes of good companies at fair prices: understandable business, favorable long-term prospects, honest and competent management and attractive share prices.
