12 Best Value Stocks To Buy According To Warren Buffett

In this piece, we will take a look at the 12 best value stocks to buy according to Warren Buffett. If you want to skip our overview of Mr. Buffet and how value investing is an integral part of his financial journey then take a look at 5 Best Value Stocks To Buy According To Warren Buffett.

For most people, investing often appears to be a black box. This was even truer before the current computing era that has placed copious amounts of financial and non financial information at everyone's fingertips. Buying a stock came with a variety of risks, and to mitigate these, a deeper understanding of the fundamentals was needed to avoid hefty losses. After all, there is no stop gap to a share price which can rapidly drop and erase all principal in the blink of an eye.

Yet, the finance industry is among the few that can truly transform an individual from rags to riches. The American Dream, for most parts, revolves around a stable source of income and a house - and as alluring and indispensable as this is, it is unlikely to make most people into overnight millionaires. With the financial sector, a couple of bets can transform anyone's life in ways previously thought unimaginable.

One of the biggest ways through which anyone can profit from the stock market is through share price appreciation. Just like there is no downward stop gap to how low stock can go, there's no upper bar, either. For instance, consider two stocks that everyone knows, Meta Platforms, Inc. (NASDAQ:META) and NVIDIA Corporation (NASDAQ:NVDA). Meta's shares have more than doubled this year, as they opened 2023 at $124 and are now currently trading at $341. For the average retail investor with a total savings of $2,000, even if half of these had been invested into Meta at the start of 2023, it would have doubled for a generous return. For the more established folks, investing $10,000 in the shares would definitely have made investing worth its while. Similarly, NVIDIA's shares have more than tripled this year, so our hypothetical retail investor could have made more money than their savings by simply investing half of the savings in a single stock.

At the heart of making money through share price appreciation is an approach called value investing. For the uninitiated, it involves determining the fair value of a stock and then checking the market price to see whether it's lower or higher. If the market price is lower, then a buying decision is made based on a metric called the margin of safety. Since a value investing decision bases its buying decision on the assumption that the market value will match the fair value at some point in the future, the lower the market price, the higher the margin of safety is.

Warren Buffett is one of the strictest adherents of value investing, as is evident by his firm's investment portfolio. When compared to most of the hotshot hedge funds in the market, Berkshire Hathaway buys shares and then forgets about them - most of the time. Its most successful stock picks have delivered spectacular returns simply through long term share price appreciation. For instance, we took a look at Warren Buffett’s 12 Longest Held Stocks and discovered that his three longest held shares are those of Express Company (NYSE:AXP), The Coca-Cola Company (NYSE:KO), and Moody's Corporation (NYSE:MCO), and his first major purchases were more than two decades back - or when most of Gen Z wasn't born. Now, Berkshire's investment portfolio is worth $313 billion and Mr. Buffett is a centi-billionaire, in a simple and effective demonstration of the potential of value investing.

Today, we'll look at some of Warren Buffett's top value stock picks and some notable names are T-Mobile US, Inc. (NASDAQ:TMUS), Bank of America Corporation (NYSE:BAC), and Citigroup Inc. (NYSE:C).
