Highlighting Warren Buffett Stocks

The list below highlights Warren Buffett stocks like Microsoft, Facebook, Alibaba and Sprouts Farmers Market that are in sync with his focus on management quality and long-term growth.

Looking at the closely watched Berkshire Hathaway portfolio, Buffett and team have increased exposure to consumer stocks, with 1-800-FLOWERS (FLWS) also finding a spot on this screen.

Showing stocks from a wide range of sectors, homebuilder D.R. Horton and semiconductor sector stock Teradyne also display characteristics of Warren Buffett stocks.

Created in MarketSmith, the screen below emphasizes metrics when looking for companies with long-term past and potential future growth. To make the list, each stock must meet a wide range of criteria, including:

  • Top 25% of all stocks in terms of five-year annual EPS growth rate.
  • 15% or greater sustainable growth.
  • 12% or better 5-year average return on equity.

Rating Potential Oracle Of Omaha Stocks

While using different criteria than that used for this list of Warren Buffett stocks, global IT consulting firm Perficient for example, earns the highest-possible 99 Composite Rating. Perficient has soared to a new all-time high. MSFT stock earns a strong 98 Composite Rating in Stock Checkup, while FB stock comes in with an 87 rating.

Like Alibaba, some companies on the list do meet typical Warren Buffett criteria, but do not meet some certain benchmarks CAN SLIM investors typically look for in the other IBD SmartSelect Ratings that gauge a company's fundamental, as well as technical, strength.

Ranging from 1 (worst) to 99 (best), the Composite Rating reveals how strongly a company is showing the seven telltale traits of winning stocks. For example, a rating of 95 means the company is outperforming 95% of all other stocks in terms of the most important fundamental and technical stock-picking criteria.

The EPS Rating tracks a company's annual and quarterly earnings growth, then measures how its numbers stack up against those of all other stocks. So just like the Composite Rating, a score of 95 means the company's EPS growth is in the top 5% of all stocks.

Identifying stocks with strong fundamentals, the SMR Rating tracks sales growth, profit margins and return on equity as a whole. An A rating means the company is in the top 20% of all stocks in terms of those key fundamental performance metrics. Since it ties in with the legendary investor's focus on a company's fundamentals, this can be a particularly useful rating for investors looking for potential Warren Buffett stocks.
