13 Cheap Value Stocks To Buy According To Warren Buffett

In this piece, we will take a look at the 13 cheap value stocks to buy according to Warren Buffett. If you want to skip our introduction to the most successful investor of our age and recent stock market indicators, then take a look at the 5 Cheap Value Stocks To Buy According To Warren Buffett.

Warren Buffett is one of the richest people in the world, and the only finance professional who is part of the coveted centi-billionaire club. Billionaires with a net worth greater than $100 billion are typically industry tycoons who have amassed their wealth by building big businesses that target fashion, technology, electric vehicles, social media, retail, or other lucrative industries.

On the flip side, the finance and investing world is typically dominated by either big banks such as JPMorgan Chase & Co. (NYSE:JPM) and The Goldman Sachs Group, Inc. (NYSE:GS), or hedge funds such as Ken Fisher's Fisher Investments or Ken Griffin's Citadel Group. Since big banks were formed years ago, their founders are now dead and therefore cannot benefit from a centi-billionaire status through their shareholdings. Similarly, while big hedge fund bosses see their firms rake in billions of dollars each year, their profits cannot scale to the level of say Apple, Inc. (NASDAQ:AAPL), and the structure of most hedge funds, even those that are publicly traded, prevents behemoth valuations to make their owners ultra, ultra rich.

Warren Buffet, therefore, is an outlier. This is because his firm, Berkshire Hathaway, is not structured like a hedge fund. Instead, Berkshire is an investment holding company that dabbles in both public and private businesses. Its investment strategy, which sees Berkshire either outright buy most businesses or selectively take large stakes in mostly dividend paying firms, allows its revenue to match big tech giants more instead of hedge funds. This is because by buying businesses, Berkshire is entitled to a slice of their profits, and no matter how many big bets Ken Griffin makes on the stock market, revenue from a well oiled large business like the ones Mr. Buffett invests in is likely to surpass a hedge funds income from fund fee and returns.

Digging deeper, Berkshire's income statement for the third quarter of this year shows that during the quarter, the firm raked in a cool $93.2 billion in revenue. Within these sales figures, a mere $4 billion came from interest, dividends, and other financial activities. Instead, the majority of Berkshire Hathaway's third quarter revenue came from its insurance business and its freight, utility, and energy operations.

Yet, despite the fact that Mr. Buffett's firm earns most of its money through business activities rather than making trades like hedge funds, he is still thought to be the greatest investor of our time. Considering this, one might wonder, what makes Warren Buffett the Oracle of Omaha? The answer is quite simple really. Mr. Buffet has somehow nearly perfected the art of picking out a select few companies that are able to post remarkable share price growth and pay dividends out of the thousands that trade on the stock market. To see how the Oracle thinks differently, consider the shares of The Coca-Cola Company (NYSE:KO). Warren Buffett bought the shares in 1998, and what else was happening back then? It was the dot com era when most people were buying attractive technology stocks. But the Oracle was buying the shares of a sugary beverage firm, and while the bubble popped, Mr. Buffett became one of the richest people in the world.

At the heart of his investing approach is what is dubbed Value Investing. Simply put, this involves an investor determining the fair value of a stock and then comparing it to the market price to see if it's higher. If it is, then a buying decision is made based on the potential of the share price falling. Since the fair value of these stocks is higher than the market value, they often have low P/E ratios as well.

Today, we'll take a look at some cheap value stocks to buy according to Warren Buffett. Some top picks are Liberty Latin America Ltd. (NASDAQ:LILA), Sirius XM Holdings Inc. (NASDAQ:SIRI), and StoneCo Ltd. (NASDAQ:STNE).
