6 Stocks With the Warren Buffett Seal of Approval

It's that time of year again. Forty-five days after the end of the quarter, large, institutional money managers like Warren Buffett are required to disclose their portfolio holdings to the SEC via form 13F. This gives ordinary investors like you and me a chance to look over the shoulder of some of the greatest minds in the business.

You shouldn't view the 13F form as a pre-scrubbed buy list, as you don't necessarily know a manager's reasons for investment. Plus, you have no way of knowing whether a stock might be part of a larger strategy or pair trade (short positions and futures positions are not disclosed) or whether the manager still actually owns the stock by the time you read about it. (The data is a good 45 days old by the time we get it.)

This is less of an issue for an investor like Warren Buffett, as he tends to trade relatively infrequently and he doesn't do a lot of fancy hedging or pair trading.

All the same, I recommend you use this list as a starting point for additional research rather than as "Buffett's buy list."

With all of that said, let's take a look at what the Oracle of Omaha is buying these days.

The 7 Best Dow Jones Stocks to Buy Right Now

The Dow Jones Industrial Average may have been supplanted by the S&P 500 as the best representation of the American economy, but at least in 2017, the group of 30 Dow Jones stocks is out in front.

The DJIA enjoys a 11.3%-to-10% performance lead for the year-to-date, led by 30 companies that are among the biggest names in their industries. We're talking nine digits worth of market capitalization and tens of billions of dollars in revenues.

There's a reason why more than $17 billion still sits in the SPDR Dow Jones Industrial Average ETF (DIA), and that's because the index remains a pretty good collection of blue-chip stocks.

Still, I don't know that I would suggest buying the entire Dow Jones index.

Just like any index, some Dow Jones stocks are better than others, which means the laggards are helping drag the winners down. And because you're talking about blue chips with bulletproof balance sheets and long-standing businesses, stock picking here introduces a little more risk than investing in the ETF ... but not much when spread across a few names.

Here are the top seven Dow Jones stocks to buy right now:
