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.

    The energy markets have endured big swings recently, and oilfield services stocks have seen a lot of volatility. Baker Hughes (NYSE:BHGE) got bought by General Electric, but its shares continue to trade separately, and GE has taken steps to reduce its stake in the energy company. Meanwhile, National Oilwell Varco (NYSE:NOV) is a smaller company in the space, but it too has had to deal with weak oil prices and their negative impact on production activity and demand for its products and services.
