Top Warren Buffett High Quality Value Stocks

Validea used the investment strategy outlined in the book Buffettology written about Warren Buffett to create our Patient Investor portfolio. The Buffett-based Patient Investor strategy is the only one of our strategies that is not taken directly from the writings of the guru himself, as Buffett has yet to write about his investment strategies. Our interpretation of Buffett's approach is based on the book Buffettology, written by Buffett's ex daughter-in-law Mary Buffett. The Buffett strategy buys stocks with an extremely long-term horizon. In fact, Buffett has held some of his investments for decades, and he's said that Berkshire's favorite holding period is 'forever'. Buffett doesn't try to capitalize on small day-to-day stock market movements; instead, he focuses on a company's business, because he knows that, over time, the stocks of firms with strong businesses and good long-term prospects are likely to rise considerably, regardless of what those stocks are doing today or tomorrow or next week. To find those strong businesses, this strategy goes back as far as a decade into a company's history, so only stocks with consistent long-term track records can pass this methodology.

Performance Disclaimer: Returns presented on Validea.com are model returns and do not represent actual trading. As a result, they do not incorporate any commissions or other trading costs or fees. Model portfolios with inception dates on or after 12/30/2005 include a combination of back tested and live model returns. The back-tested performance results shown are hypothetical and are not the result of real-time management of actual accounts. The back-testing of performance differs from actual account performance because the investment strategy may be adjusted at any time, for any reason and can continue to be changed until desired or better performance results are achieved. Back-tested returns are presented to provide general information regarding how the underlying strategy behind the portfolio performed in our historical testing. A back-tested strategy has the benefit of hindsight and the results do not reflect the impact that material economic or market factors may have had on advisor's decision-making if actual client assets were being managed using this approach.

Optimal portfolios presented on Validea.com represent the rebalancing period that has led to the best historical performance for each of our equity models. Each optimal portfolio was determined after the fact with performance information that was not available at portfolio inception. As a result, an investor could not have invested in the optimal portfolio since its inception. Optimal portfolios are presented to allow investors to quickly determine the portfolio size and rebalancing period that has performed best for each of our models in our historical testing.

Both the model portfolio and benchmark returns presented for all equity portfolios on Validea.com are not inclusive of dividends. Returns for our ETF portfolios and trend following system, and the benchmarks they are compared to, are inclusive of dividends. The S&P 500 is presented as a benchmark because it is the most widely followed benchmark of the overall US market and is most often used by investors for return comparison purposes. As with any investment strategy, there is potential for profit as well as the possibility of loss and investors may incur a loss despite a past history of gains. Past performance does not guarantee future results. Results will vary with economic and market conditions.
