What Two Stocks Do Warren Buffett and George Soros Agree On?

The two top traders/investors are Berkshire Hathaway's (BRK-A) (BRK-B) Warren Buffett and George Soros. Both of these billionaires have been investing in stocks for years, with very successful track records. If you look at the list of stocks that each own, you will find only two that they agree on.

First, there is the ever popular Wal-Mart Stores Inc. (WMT), which will be announcing earnings next week on August 17. The stock sports a forward price to earnings ratio of 11.6 and a reasonable price earnings growth ratio of 1.23. The stock even pays a 2.3% dividend.

Both of these traders also like the cable company, Comcast Corporation (CMCSA), which recently reported a 6% increase in revenues but an 8.6% drop in earnings. The stock carries a forward PE of 12.5 and a very decent PEG ratio of 1.19. The company recently raised its dividend to now generate a 2% yield.
