Top Warren Buffett Stocks To Watch For 2021

Warren Buffett’sBerkshire Hathaway (NYSE:BRK.A)(NYSE:BRK.B) needs little introduction, but if you’re looking for the next Berkshire, you might be surprised to find it in China. Tech giant Tencent(OTC:TCEHY) has an impressive portfolio of companies that’s been valued at as much as $250 billion, and it also owns the super-app WeChat, whose competitive advantages are manifest.

In this segment ofBackstage Pass, recorded onAug. 23, Fool contributor Jeremy Bowman explains some of the surprising similarities between the two companies.

Jeremy Bowman: So Tencent is the parent of WeChat. That’s most of their business. WeChat is basically a super-app that I think does pretty much all the things we might use in apps like Facebook, or YouTube, or Uber for here. That’s all rolled into one app with WeChat. It’s really a huge business for Tencent. It pairs with other companies. Tencent, you have to think of it in two ways. It’s first the WeChat, and then secondly, they have a really prolific investment portfolio. I think you can almost compare them to something like Berkshire Hathaway in some ways.

    When chip giant Broadcom (NASDAQ:AVGO) announced in July that it planned to pay $18.9 billion in cash to acquire CA Technologies (NASDAQ:CA), the reaction from analysts was far from positive.

  • [By Daniel Sparks]

    Shares of semiconductor company Broadcom (NASDAQ:AVGO) surged on Friday, following the company’s third-quarter earnings release. The stock’s jump comes amid a rough period as shares fell more than 21% in the 10 months leading up to the company’s just-released quarterly update. The decline was partly fueled by Broadcom’s drawn-out attempt to acquire Qualcomm (which eventually was blocked by an executive order by President Trump) and concerns about the company’s pending acquisition of CA Technologies (NASDAQ:CA).

Advisors’ Opinion:

  • [By ]

    No wonder water-centric funds like the Invesco Global Water ETF (NYSE: PIO) are at 52-week highs and climbing.

    While these are all worthy candidates for further research if you’re interested, unfortunately, these stocks aren’t exactly synonymous with dividends. Many have little to no yield. But one industry leader has been raising its distributions every year since 2008 — with $8 billion budgeted to spur future growth and ensure that streak remains intact.

    A lot of chatter has built up around Walt Disney Co.’s (NYSE: DIS) streaming service set to launch later this year. But not too many people know that Disney is now the majority owner of Hulu. According to reports, AT&T Inc. (NYSE: T) sold its stake in Hulu for $1.43 billion, bringing the streaming firm’s valuation to $15 billion. The sale leaves Comcast Corp.(NASDAQ: CMCSA) and Disney as the primary owners, with the latter holding a 60% stake. The real bellwether today will be a report from CSX Corp. (NYSE: CSX).

Teekay Offshore Partners L.P., incorporated on August 30, 2006, is a provider of marine transportation, oil production, storage, long-distance towing and offshore installation and maintenance and safety services to the offshore oil industry focusing on the deep-water offshore oil regions of the North Sea, Brazil and the East Coast of Canada. The Company operates shuttle tankers; towage vessels; floating, production, storage and off-loading (FPSO) units; floating storage and off-take (FSO) units; units for maintenance and safety (UMS); long-distance towing and offshore installation vessels, and conventional crude oil tankers. The Company’s segments include shuttle tanker segment, FPSO segment, FSO segment, conventional tanker segment, towage segment and UMS segment.

The Company’s shuttle tankers are primarily subject to long-term, fixed-rate time-charter contracts for a specific offshore oil field or under contracts of affreightment for various fields. The number of voyages performed under these contracts of affreightment normally depends upon the oil production of each field. The Company’s shuttle tankers service the conventional spot tanker market. The Company’s shuttle tanker fleet consists of over 30 vessels that operate under fixed-rate contracts of affreightment, time charters and bareboat charters, over one shuttle tanker in lay-up as a conversion candidate, and the HiLoad DP unit. All of these shuttle tankers, with the exception of the HiLoad DP unit, provide transportation services to energy companies, primarily in the North Sea, Brazil and the East Coast of Canada. It has approximately 110 vessels in the world shuttle tanker fleet (including over 20 newbui! ldings), the majority of which operate in the North Sea and Brazil. Shuttle tankers also operate in the United States Gulf.

The Company uses the FPSO units to provide production, processing and storage services to oil companies operating offshore oil field installations. These services are provided under long-term, fixed-rate FPSO contracts, some of which also include certain incentive compensation or penalties based on the level of oil production and other operational measures. The Company’s FPSO fleet consists of the Petrojarl Varg, the Cidade de Rio das Ostras (Rio das Ostras), the Piranema Spirit, the Voyageur Spirit, the Petrojarl I and the Petrojarl Knarr FPSO units, all of which it owns 100%, and the Itajai and the Libra FPSO units, of which it owns 50%. The Company’s FSO units provide an on-site storage solution to oil field installations that have no oil storage facilities or that require supplemental storage. The Company’s FSO units are placed on long-term, fixed-rate time charters or bareboat charters as an integrated part of the field development plan. It has approximately 90 FSO units operating and over seven FSO units on order in the world fleet, and has approximately seven FSO units in which its ownership interests ranged from 89% to 100%, including over one vessel undergoing conversion into an FSO unit. Its FSO units include Suksan Salamander, Navion Saga, Pattani Spirit, Dampier Spirit, Apollo Spirit and others. The Company’s conventional oil tankers are used primarily for transcontinental seaborne transportation of oil.

The Company provides long-distance towing and offshore installation vessels with DP2 capability. The Company has approximately 30 long-distance towing and offshore installation vessels operating and over four long-distance towing and offshore installation vessels on order in the world fleet. Its towage fleet includes over 10 long-distance towing and offshore installation vessels (including over four ultra-long distance towing and offshore insta! llation v! essel newbuildings). All of its delivered towing and offshore installation vessels operate on voyage-charter towage contracts. The Company has a UMS, the Arendal Spirit, and approximately two newbuildings. The Arendal Spirit operates on a fixed-rate time-charter contract. It has approximately 40 DP UMS operating and over 20 units on order in the world fleet.

    Brace Yourself: The 5G revolution is unleashing your next potential TRILLION-DOLLAR opportunity – go here now.

    A lot of chatter has built up around Walt Disney Co.’s (NYSE: DIS) streaming service set to launch later this year. But not too many people know that Disney is now the majority owner of Hulu. According to reports, AT&T Inc. (NYSE: T) sold its stake in Hulu for $1.43 billion, bringing the streaming firm’s valuation to $15 billion. The sale leaves Comcast Corp.(NASDAQ: CMCSA) and Disney as the primary owners, with the latter holding a 60% stake. The real bellwether today will be a report from CSX Corp. (NYSE: CSX). The U.S. railway giant will announce its earnings, and investors are curious about how the company has fared with fewer coal shipments and concerns about a slowing economy. Look for earnings reports from Bank of America Corp.(NYSE: BAC), BlackRock Inc. (NYSE: BLK), Comerica Inc. (NYSE: CMA), CSX Corp. (NYSE: CSX), Johnson & Johnson (NYSE: JNJ), United Continental Holdings Inc.(NYSE: UAL).
