Here are eight Buffett-approved businesses built for the long haul.

Curated by The Motley Fool


There's a reason investors call Warren Buffett the ‘Oracle of Omaha’. For decades, Buffett has beaten the market with the investments he's made through his holding company, Berkshire Hathaway. Thankfully, every quarter Buffett and his colleagues at Berkshire have to disclose the company's holdings in a 13-F filing, so the average investor can see where the ‘Oracle" is putting his money. From his current investments, here are eight stocks we like because they're high-quality businesses, built for the long haul, trading at fair prices.

How did we choose these stocks?

Each of these stocks is not only a large position of Warren Buffett's Berkshire Hathaway, but also an active recommendation of a Motley Fool premium investing service as of 31/8/2016.

    The UAW is expanding its strike against General Motors (GM) and Stellantis (STLA). Autoworkers are still striking Ford (F), but the will not widen the scope of the strike because progress has been made in negotiations. The summer saw lots of labor activity, Hollywood actors and writers going on strike and Teamsters getting a new deal from United Parcel Service (UPS). Service Employees International Union President Mary Kay Henry says workers are saying "enough is enough. You're doing better as a company, I need to do better as a working person in this country." When asked if labor unions are being more active now because the labor market is so tight, Henry says it's a different conversation.
