Berkshire Hathaway (BRK.B) famously doesn't pay dividends - it has better ways to use its cash - but Chairman and CEO Warren Buffett sure loves collecting them. The great majority of the stocks in Berkshire Hathaway's portfolio are dividend payers. And, indeed, all of Berkshire's top 10 holdings - from Apple (AAPL) to Moody's Corporation (MCO) to Southwest Airlines (LUV) - pay dividends. Yields on these names are another matter. Buffett doesn't reach for yield any more than he chases performance. Apple, his favorite stock by far, sports of dividend yield of just 1.3% these days. It's not that Buffett is automatically allergic to above-average yields. (The dividend yield on the S&P 500 currently stands at 1.81%, according to Birinyi Associates.) Heck, the yields on Berkshires highest-yielding dividend stocks are anywhere from more-than-respectable to generous. There just aren't all that many big yielders. After excluding names that are now negligible parts of Berkshire's portfolio - for example, Verizon (VZ) or Sanofi (SNY) - these are the five Warren Buffett stocks with the highest dividend yields.
