Jim Cramer and Billionaire Ray Dalio Are Betting on These 10 Stocks

In this article, we discuss the 10 stocks that Jim Cramer and billionaire Ray Dalio are betting on. If you want to read about some more stocks that Cramer and Dalio are bullish on, go directly to Jim Cramer and Billionaire Ray Dalio Are Betting on These 5 Stocks.

Ray Dalio, the chief of Bridgewater Associates, is one of the most respected hedge fund managers on Wall Street. His comments on the alarming situation at the stock market in the past few months have confirmed macro investors fears. Dalio recently warned that the aggressive monetary policies of the central bank in the United States would lead to stagflation, an economic condition that comes with high inflation where economic growth and employment are not robust enough, leading to stalled growth models that stop short of an all–out recession. 

Jim Cramer, one of the ardent admirers of Dalio and a leading finance guru, has also echoed these sentiments. Both stalwarts, who have been investing at the stock market for decades, are bullish on names like Walmart Inc. (NYSE:WMT), Johnson & Johnson (NYSE:JNJ), and The Procter & Gamble Company (NYSE:PG) as the market shifts away from growth towards value to protect against volatility. Dalio manages an equity portfolio worth over $19 billion at the end of the third quarter of 2022 with the top holdings in the healthcare and consumer goods sectors.

On September 1, Jim Cramer placed the company among a group of dividend-paying stocks that he was bullish on for the coming months.

9. Starbucks Corporation (NASDAQ:SBUX)

Number of Hedge Fund Holders: 55    

Starbucks Corporation (NASDAQ:SBUX) operates as a roaster, marketer, and retailer of specialty coffee worldwide. On November 29, Starbucks announced that its Starbucks for Life, the sugar cookie-inspired beverages, were back. Regulatory filings show that Dalio owned more than 2.9 million shares in the company at the end of the third quarter of 2022 worth $252 million. Cramer discussed the stock during an appearance on CNBC on September 14, noting that the company had posted encouraging revenue growth and margin expansion numbers recently and also adding that the firm had invested extensively in technology to modernize the firm in recent months.  

On November 4, Citi analyst Jon Tower maintained a Neutral rating on Starbucks Corporation (NASDAQ:SBUX) stock and raised the firm's price target to $93 from $90, noting that the company's fiscal fourth-quarter results confirmed its business momentum in the US and improving international trends.  

Among the hedge funds being tracked by Insider Monkey, Chicago-based investment firm Citadel Investment Group is a leading shareholder in Starbucks Corporation (NASDAQ:SBUX) with 5.8 million shares worth more than $444.7 million.

In its Q2 2022 investor letter, Matrix Asset Advisors, an asset management firm, highlighted a few stocks and Starbucks Corporation (NASDAQ:SBUX) was one of them. Here is what the fund said:

“Starbucks Corporation (NASDAQ:SBUX) is a premiere global coffee brand supported by over 32,600 stores across the world. The firm has a long history of beverage innovation and strong employee/barista relations with the firm paying above-market wages and benefits. Starbucks has a strong balance sheet and finances. The company generates steady and consistent cash flow, selling millions of cups of premium coffee every day. The company’s share price declined in part due to its large business in China which was largely shut down due to Covid restrictions and because of rising commodity and labor costs. We think the shares are attractively priced for a company that should grow 10% plus per year with a dividend yield of 2.6% at our average cost.” 

8. The Coca-Cola Company (NYSE:KO)

Number of Hedge Fund Holders: 60  

The Coca-Cola Company (NYSE:KO) is a beverage company that manufactures, markets, and sells various non-alcoholic beverages worldwide. Securities filings show that Dalio owned more than 11.4 million shares in the company at the end of the third quarter of 2022 worth $642 million. Cramer recently named the firm among a basket of dividend-paying firms he was bullish on. Cramer said that the firm was “textbook defensive stock” since the high dividend yield offered investors protection from market swings. 

On October 26, UBS analyst Peter Grom maintained a Buy rating on The Coca-Cola Company (NYSE:KO) stock and raised the price target to $68 from $63, noting that the company's third-quarter earnings beat was impressive as its organic growth more than offset incremental currency headwinds.    

At the end of the third quarter of 2022, 60 hedge funds in the database of Insider Monkey held stakes worth $28 billion in The Coca-Cola Company (NYSE:KO), compared to 64 in the preceding quarter worth $29 billion.

“Over the last year, we have repositioned our portfolio to navigate the course we see ahead. We added to more defensive areas of the portfolio like consumer staples (The Coca-Cola Company (NYSE:KO)). While the next month or two will likely prove choppy on account of the Omicron variant, we believe that Omicron, like Delta, represents a speed bump on the way to recovery rather than a true change in course. We see strong economic momentum continuing in 2022 and we expect interest rates to rise. After a decade of remarkably low rates, we would not be surprised if this change in direction is accompanied by some fits and starts in the markets. With our emphasis on pricing power, purposeful sector exposure, valuation discipline, and a strong dividend profile, we believe we are well-positioned for the year ahead.”
