How Much Dividend Income Will Warren Buffett's Berkshire Hathaway Generate in 2019?

BRK.B ORCL +1 more BRK.B ORCL KHC

Wall Street is cluttered with large financial investment banks, wealth management companies, mutual funds, and hedge funds. But in the end, none can hold a candle to the simplistic yet effective value investing style that Warren Buffett has brought to the table over the past 60-plus years. That's a compound annual return rate of around 28% since the mid-1950s, whereas the stock market has returned an average of 7% per year, inclusive of dividend reinvestment and when factoring in inflation, over the long run. Buffett's buy-and-hold ethos and his ability to identify inexpensive businesses with long-term staying power have done the trick and pushed Berkshire's investment portfolio to a value of $186.5 billion as of Jan. 13, 2019. Berkshire's holdings are unlikely to remain static, and the 33 dividend-paying companies could also see their payouts increase or, in rarer cases, decrease. But if things were to remain as they are as of the 13-F filing on Nov. 14, here's how much Berkshire Hathaway would pocket in dividend income from each of his holdings.

Apple's stock plunge is taking a multi-billion bite out of Berkshire Hathaway's stock portfolio

BRK.B AAPL

The drop in Apple’s stock price (AAPL) has hit Warren Buffett’s Berkshire Hathaway’s (BRK-A, BRK-B) stock portfolio. “On a cumulative pro forma basis, investments in Apple Inc., Wells Fargo & Co., Bank of America Corp., and American Express Co. are down just over $25 billion during that time, with Apple's 34% drop wiping out $19.2 billion of Berkshire market value.”. As of the third quarter ended September 30, Berkshire Hathaway owned more than 252.47 million shares of the iPhone-maker, making it the No. 1 largest equity holding. Assuming the position is unchanged, it’s valued at over $38.83 billion based on Thursday’s closing price of $153.80. Apple’s stock came under pressure after CEO Tim Cook said the company lowered its revenue guidance for the first fiscal quarter of 2019, citing weakness in China and lower-than-expected iPhone sales.

Berkshire's Apple Investment Is Down $21.6 Billion -- Here's Why Warren Buffett Probably Isn't Worried

BRK.B AAPL

Berkshire's Apple Investment Is Down $21.6 Billion -- Here's Why Warren Buffett Probably Isn't Worried. With 252.5 million shares in its closely followed stock portfolio, this means that Berkshire Hathaway's (NYSE: BRK-A)(NYSE: BRK-B) investment has lost $21.6 billion -- at least on paper. The original purchase was for about 9.8 million shares and was worth about $1 billion at the time -- relatively small for a Berkshire investment. What's more, the original purchase didn't come from Buffett at all. The very next quarter, Berkshire added another 5.42 million shares. Since then, Berkshire's stake has been increased in nearly every quarter -- including the last eight in a row -- and even after the recent decline, is the largest stock position in the company's portfolio by a big margin.

3 Reasons to Love Berkshire Hathaway in 2019

BRK.B

In light of last quarter's severe volatility, investors may be looking for a safe place to park their money, and Berkshire has that in spades. As of the third quarter, Berkshire had roughly $104 billion in cash at the ready. What's even better? Berkshire receives premiums every year from its various insurance subsidiaries, which Buffett and Munger can deploy at will. In times of huge market drops like we saw in Q4, Berkshire's large cash pile, directed by the greatest investor of all time, is likely to find its way into bargains. And since Berkshire recently relaxed its share repurchase criteria, that money could even be used to buy Berkshire stock itself. So even if you don't have any extra cash in your brokerage account to deploy if the market drops, by owning Berkshire you have the greatest investor of all time consistently "buying" on your behalf. Chalk it up to a belief in the good ol' U.S. of A. Berkshire Hathaway has some foreign businesses, such as Israel's Iscar and a few new venture investments in India, but the vast majority of Berkshire's businesses still reside in the U.S. Why is that important?

The Not-So-Secret Reason Both Apple and Berkshire Hathaway Stocks Declined Today

BRK.B AAPL

Citing weak iPhone sales in China, Apple advised that revenue for its December 2018 quarter will probably come in at no more than $84 billion, or 8% below previous promises. Shares of Warren Buffett's Berkshire Hathaway (NYSE: BRK-A)(NYSE: BRK-B) stock declined, too, closing the day down 5.6%, and 5.5%, respectively. Indeed, as of November, Apple shares made up 26% of all the stock that Berkshire Hathaway owned -- a proportion twice as big as Berkshire's ownership stake in any other public company. Exactly how bad the fallout from Apple's falling stock price will be for Berkshire won't be clear until the company next reports earnings, probably early next month. But assuming Apple's stock price doesn't improve by then -- and that Berkshire hasn't unloaded any of its Apple stock in the meantime -- then the 5% of Apple's stock that Berkshire owned in mid-November, when Apple had a market capitalization of roughly $890 billion, is worth 24% less today, now that Apple's market cap has shrunk to less than $675 billion.
