Here are eight Buffett-approved businesses built for the long haul.

Curated by The Motley Fool


There's a reason investors call Warren Buffett the ‘Oracle of Omaha’. For decades, Buffett has beaten the market with the investments he's made through his holding company, Berkshire Hathaway. Thankfully, every quarter Buffett and his colleagues at Berkshire have to disclose the company's holdings in a 13-F filing, so the average investor can see where the ‘Oracle" is putting his money. From his current investments, here are eight stocks we like because they're high-quality businesses, built for the long haul, trading at fair prices.

How did we choose these stocks?

Each of these stocks is not only a large position of Warren Buffett's Berkshire Hathaway, but also an active recommendation of a Motley Fool premium investing service as of 31/8/2016.

    There’s a ‘shaky ground underneath the market’, says NewEdge Advisors CIO

    The end of an eventful first quarter approaches as markets remain resilient while absorbing stresses in the banking sector. However, NewEdge Advisors CIO Cameron Dawson noting that while equity resilience is being held up by a handful of names, under the surface lies “some deterioration in the broader subset of the S&P.” “Only about 40% of the names within the S&P 500 are trading above their 200-day moving average,” says Dawson. Apart from “a little bit more of a shaky ground underneath the market,” Dawson notes another thing for investors to keep in mind is the upcoming earnings season. Even though banking sector turmoil sent markets into a frenzy earlier this month, Dawson says earnings estimates “have not been cut over the last three weeks,” despite market uncertainty.
