Be Part Of Buffett's Success Story With These 5 ETFs

Who doesn’t want to be rich and famous like Warren Buffett, especially after his Berkshire Hathaway Inc. BRK-A has added an impressive 25.7% so far this year (as of December 21, 2016) and traded above $250,000 for the first time in mid December. After all, this Wall Street guru successfully put his money in the right place and continued to reap huge returns.

Furthermore, Berkshire Hathaway has added more than 116% over the last five years that is better than the gain of about 80% from the broader market ETF SPDR S&P 500 ETF (SPY - Free Report) during the same timeframe (read: S&P 500 On A Bull Run: Bet on Leveraged ETFs for 2017).

Why Such a Surge

Investors should note that Trump rally had a lot to do with Berkshire Hathaway’s success. In the last one month (as of December 21, 2016), the stock was up over 4.5%. As the Trump rally pushed up bond yields, financial stocks gained strength, benefiting Buffett’s bank-heavy portfolio (read: Play Banking Bonanza with These ETFs in Trump World).

He also had considerable holdings in industrial stocks like General Electric Company (GE). And Trump’s promise to boost infrastructure spending and the resultant boost in industrial stocks are by now known to all. In fact, Buffett had positions in several other currently-soaring corners of industry – like energy and railroads – that took Berkshire Hathaway to its recent height (read: How to Bet on Oil with Leveraged ETFs).
