Top Warren Buffett Stocks
Validea used the investment strategy outlined in the book Buffettology written about Warren Buffett to create our Patient Investor portfolio. The Buffett-based Patient Investor strategy is the only one of our strategies that is not taken directly from the writings of the guru himself, as Buffett has yet to write about his investment strategies. Our interpretation of Buffett's approach is based on the book Buffettology, written by Buffett's ex daughter-in-law Mary Buffett. The Buffett strategy buys stocks with an extremely long-term horizon. In fact, Buffett has held some of his investments for decades, and he's said that Berkshire's favorite holding period is 'forever'. Buffett doesn't try to capitalize on small day-to-day stock market movements; instead, he focuses on a company's business, because he knows that, over time, the stocks of firms with strong businesses and good long-term prospects are likely to rise considerably, regardless of what those stocks are doing today or tomorrow or next week. To find those strong businesses, this strategy goes back as far as a decade into a company's history, so only stocks with consistent long-term track records can pass this methodology.
