I’ve discussed this in the past but we got yet another example last week when Buffett’s Berkshire announced it was acquiring HJ Heinz Co (HNZ). In a way, Buffett might be one of the top dividend investors in the world. He owns several businesses that pay back cash flows to Berkshire every month. Companies in sectors such as insurance, utilities, energy, railroads, tv etc. He also holds big stakes in oil companies (Conoco Phillips-COP), food companies (Kraft Foods-KFT, Coca-Cola KO), credit card companies (American Express-AXP), financial services (Wells Fargo-WFC), etc.
