Unilever (ULVR.L) (UNc.AS) executives took to the British press and airwaves on Tuesday to defend their plan to base a new single headquarters in the Netherlands in the face of opposition from several prominent shareholders. The plan by the Anglo-Dutch company has become a hot topic in Britain where it has become entangled in the debate over Brexit and its impact on the economy. Two main practical concerns are around the forced selling of Unilever shares by some British investors because Unilever will drop out of the benchmark FTSE 100 index (.FTSE), and the future tax treatment of Dutch dividends.

Irene Rosenfeld orchestrated significant change during her nearly decade-long reign at wide-moat Mondelez MDLZ . While we aren't surprised that Van de Put's top priority is reigniting sales, we never expected the company would opt to sacrifice the hard-fought operating margin gains of the past four years. Mondelez currently trades more than 15% below our fair value estimate.

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.
