Bill Gates, chairman of Microsoft Corp., participates in a newspaper toss event at the Berkshire Hathaway annual shareholders meeting in Omaha, Nebraska, U.S., on Saturday, May 5, 2012. Buffett will take questions from analysts, journalists and investors today at the meeting, a forum he uses to opine on the economy and capital deployment.

Now that stocks have started to sell off and interest rates have begun to rise, many investors are again looking for great stocks at bargain prices, and those in Warren Buffett's Berkshire Hathaway (BRK.A) portfolio are a great place to start your search for long-term value.

24/7 Wall St. pulled out the "cheapest" stocks from Berkshire's stock holdings to see where the best opportunities are for long-term investors today. Buffett is of course a value investor who seeks growth at a reasonable price, and he generally prefers companies that pay a dividend.

Their screens focused primarily on stocks that had the most upside to the Thomson Reuters consensus price targets from Wall Street, but looked at at other valuation metrics as well.


What is amazing is the many companies in the Berkshire portfolio that are trading near what the analyst community would call fair value. But Investors should remember that Buffett himself is less interested in how Wall Street values stocks in the short term. He puts his money into solid companies that he knows will remain attractive through good times and bad.

Even if a stock market is inflated, it doesn't mean that by buying the right stocks you can't make money. In this new 5 year cycle, every good stock of good companies will grow. Take it for granted. Fredrick - http://www.mystocktobuy.com/

The stock market is as artificially inflated as a woman with a new set of silicone boobs. Jump in suckers!

click the arrow next to the picture. But if you can't figure that out, you probably shouldn't be investing in the stock market.

My choices are great, but my courage is low. I don't have the courage (trust in the market) to stay in long enough to make a lot of money.

I'd like to think I could invest in the stock market, but it has been hundreds of times now, I have read how the market is manipulated. Low investors put in their money which gets gobbled up as soon as there is enough, and the ones in control take all their money and start over again. The odds are no different than a casino.

If you are just starting out, stay away from pink or OTC stocks.
