Najarian: Trading In Buffett's Wake


In a CNBC exclusive, we told you Warren Buffett purchased 2.1 billion dollars of TXU junk bonds from Goldman Sachs. Can you trade on it?

These aren’t junk bonds they way you might think says Pete Najarian. They’re trading at 95 cents on the dollar and they‘ve got a 10% annual rate.

And his purchase is consistent with the Warren Buffet methodology. He finds things that he feels still has some value to the upside with limited risk to the downside.

In fact that philosophy is evident in Buffet’s other recent purchases, which include US Bancorp (USB), Wellpoint (WLP), Johnson & Johnson (JNJ), Well Fargo (WFC) and UnitedHealthcare (UNH).

Personally, I think all his picks are very strong, adds Pete Najarian. If I had to chose one of them, I’d go with Well Fargo.
