5 Buffett-Owned Dividend Stocks Yielding 3% or More

Warren Buffett isn’t known as a dividend investor, and regular quarterly payouts aren’t one of his preconditions for making an investment in a stock. But as chairman of Berkshire Hathaway (BRK.B), Buffett has selected handful of comparatively high-paying dividend stocks for the company’s portfolio.

From old-economy industrial and consumer stocks to high-yield real estate, Berkshire’s dividend holdings don’t follow a pattern. Indeed, of the 46 stocks in Berkshire’s portfolio, only five have dividend yields greater than 3%.

All of these dividend stocks still technically have “The Oracle of Omaha’s” blessing – reason enough for income investors to give them a closer look. But by Buffett’s own estimation, some of them have seen better days. Thus, it’s important to take note not of just Berkshire’s stakes, but the companies’ current situation and Buffett’s more recent thoughts toward his holdings.

Here’s a look at five Buffett-owned dividend stocks yielding 3% or more.
