Get Stock Picks From Buffett, Soros and Other Gurus

March 13, 2014 | About:

Regardless of conditions, there are always valuable opportunities in the stock market. But with over 11,000 publicly traded companies, how do you find them?

This was the problem for GuruFocus founder, Dr. Charlie Tian. Then he had an idea...

Why not generate ideas from the portfolios of the best investors? By starting with the stocks that some of the best investors had already researched, wouldn't the risk of being wrong drop dramatically?

Would it have been helpful to know that Warren Buffett was buying millions of shares of Media General (MEG) in late 2012? Probably ...considering the stock has gained 297% over the following two years.

Or how about Buffett's position in Lee Enterprises (LEE) taken the same year? He began buying when shares were just $1. Those who followed his lead have been rewarded with a 322% gain and growing.

At the time of this writing, he is up 142% on Phillips 66 (PSX), 207% on Mastercard (MA), 85% on Starz (STRZA), and the list goes on.

Ever heard of Intercept Pharmaceuticals (ICPT)? Neither had most of our subscribers. But followers were alerted when guru Steven Cohen began buying shares in mid 2013. Nine months later shares are up a staggering 865%.

Vipshop Holdings (VIPS) was another under-the-radar stock until our Guru Consensus feature pointed out that 5 separate investment gurus were buying it in the 3rd quarter of last year. It is no surprise that VIPS shares are up over 247% just six months later.

How valuable would it be to know exactly what stocks are being bought by the greatest investors alive?

Only a handful of people in this world quality as investment Gurus. We have carefully identified a number of investment Gurus based on their proven long-term track records. We track their portfolio, buys, sells, and insights into the market.

This is the backbone of GuruFocus.com and one of our greatest resources available to you.

Tom Keegan, a Merrill Lynch advisor whose team oversees more than $22 billion in client funds commented, "It's the best research department on the Street."

FREE 7-Day Trial of GuruFocus Premium Membership

Premium Members can also access Real Time Picks.

"Real Time Picks" report the stock purchases and sales that Gurus have made within the prior 2 weeks. The report time lag can be as short as 3 days after the date of the transaction. If a guru makes purchases/sales of stocks in which he owns a greater than 5% stake, SEC regulations require him to report that trade within 10 days. Some Gurus report these within 2 days. Real Time Guru Picks keep you more closely informed.

We also track the stock picks and portfolios of a group of other renowned money managers. They are great investors as well, many on the way to making it into our Guru Hall of Fame. These money managers have been suggested by our users.

GuruFocus Premium Members can even create a personalized list of their favorite investment Gurus and receive automated email alerts when they buy and sell. Compare track records, view Consensus Picks, download portfolios, follow Industry Trends, identify Guru Bargains, get International picks, and much, much more.

Try it out yourself with a FREE 7-DAY TRIAL. Access all the features of Premium Membership absolutely risk free. If you decide it's not for you, cancel and owe nothing. We even have a 30-day money back guarantee.
