Time and the luxury of patience are the individual investor's greatest advantages in the market, and strict adherence to distinctions between "value stocks" and "growth stocks" can lead to short-term thinking that hinders the pursuit of great deals. Berkshire Hathaway CEO Warren Buffett famously said that he'd rather own a wonderful company at a fair price than a fair company at a wonderful price. Buffett's incredible track record of stock-picking success is rooted in his understanding that long-term investing tends to create the best results, and this philosophy is at the heart of his oft-quoted bit of wisdom about great companies being superior to "cheap" companies.
Lower-priced stocks tend to have smaller market caps and generally present a better opportunity to get in early on a company's long-term growth. There are plenty of options out there to find potential investments trading at a lower price, but it's harder to find great companies trading so low. The first pick is Sirius XM (NASDAQ: SIRI), a Warren Buffett-backed bet on satellite radio.
These top picks have low prices and good prospects to outperform the broader market over the long term.
Seemingly just as quick, the stock market has regained a good chunk of its declines. While there's no question that things are likely to remain uncertain and volatile in the near term, the stock market has left little doubt that buying great companies and holding onto them for long periods of time is a great strategy. With that being said, and with the stock market enduring quite a bit of weakness in 2020, if you have disposable cash ready to put to work, here are three top stocks that can make you richer in June, and probably well beyond.
With the global economy showing some serious volatility, holding stocks with secure balance sheets and reliable cash flows is one way to beat the volatility and sleep easy at night. If you're looking for some stocks that effectively "print money," keep reading to see why Facebook (NASDAQ: FB), Berkshire Hathaway (NYSE: BRK.A) (NYSE: BRK.B), and Altria (NYSE: MO) all fit the bill. It's hard to think of a bigger cash cow than Facebook.

Three Buffett stocks, in particular, are trouncing Berkshire in 2020. While the COVID-19 pandemic has hurt many companies, Amazon's business has thrived. The impact of the global novel coronavirus outbreak has turned Amazon's business upside down -- mostly in a good way.
Some of the most successful investors in the world have loaded up on these three beaten-down stocks recently.
Despite an investor stampede for the exits in the month of March that put a lot of stocks on sale, Warren Buffett's Berkshire Hathaway did surprisingly little stock buying in the first quarter. One good reason Buffett needn't lose any sleep over missed chances is that he's already put the ball into play on many occasions by buying some of the best businesses on the planet. Brazilian payment processor StoneCo (NASDAQ: STNE) and retail landlord STORE Capital (NYSE: STOR) have been beaten down during the COVID-19 scare, haven't recovered yet, and are likely to produce handsome returns for investors with a patient mindset.

Teva Pharmaceutical Industries (NYSE: TEVA) is a well known generic drugmaker that's attracted the attention of a number of well-known investors in the past.

Teva's business can be split up into two main areas: its generics business and its own branded drug products.
Wisdom from the world's wisest students of the market is surprisingly simple, even if difficult to adhere to.
The digital payments, e-commerce, and finance company that Warren Buffett has a 5% stake in rises even as the economic situation in Brazil decays.
Panic and uncertainty caused by the coronavirus disease 2019 (COVID-19) pandemic pushed the broad-based S&P 500 into its fastest bear market in history in March and eventually sent the widely followed stock index down 34% in just 33 calendar days. Despite never knowing when stock market corrections will present themselves, how long they'll last, or how steep the drop will be, every correction (and bear market) in history has proven to be an excellent buying opportunity for investors with a long-term mindset. What's more, you don't have to be rolling in dough to put your money to work in the stock market.
Two stocks in particular that still look incredibly attractive are U.S. Bancorp (NYSE: USB) and Berkshire Hathaway (NYSE: BRK.A) (NYSE: BRK.B).

When it comes to all-time investing greats, Berkshire Hathaway (NYSE: BRK.A)(NYSE: BRK.B) CEO Warren Buffett regularly finds his way toward the top of the list. Despite being par for the course relative to the benchmark S&P 500 over the past decade, Berkshire's per-share market value has outperformed the S&P 500, inclusive of dividends, by more than 2,744,000% since 1964. According to Berkshire Hathaway's 13F filing with the Securities and Exchange Commission, it was an exceptionally active quarter for Buffett and his team in terms of buys and sells made, but not a particularly big quarter in terms of aggregate dollars devoted to buying and selling.
