Plenty Of Stocks To Fit Warren Buffett's Criteria!!!
With over $25 billion in cash to deploy it looks as if the worlds greatest investor Warren Buffet could put some of that to work according to a recent Bloomberg article. Buffett looks for companies who have high returns on equity(ROE), low debt/equity ratio, competent management and stable cash flow. This is only the second time since 1965 that the book value of Berkshire Hathaway $BRKA has wound up in the negative column. Even after one of the worst years in recent history, Buffett's Berkshire Hathaway has still managed to compound its book value at over 20% per year annually during the course of the last 44 years. Three stocks high lighted in the article are Sysco $SYY, VF Corp. $VF, and Danaher $DHR. However there are over 50 stocks mentioned here which gives the value investor a good starting point to further research and possibly invest in some of the same stocks as Buffett himself.
