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.

    Exclusive-California lithium tax would delay shipments to automakers, executives warn

    A proposed flat-rate tax on lithium produced in California's Salton Sea region will delay deliveries of the electric vehicle battery metal to General Motors Co and Stellantis NV and may push some mining companies to exit the state entirely, industry executives told Reuters. The brewing tension comes as America's largest state is trying to position itself as a leader in the green energy revolution and as supplies of lithium have failed to match surging demand amid the push to phase out gasoline-powered vehicles. Eric Spomer, chief executive of privately held EnergySource Minerals LLC, told Reuters his company has halted discussions with potential financiers and a major automaker he declined to identify while California's legislature debates the tax.
