Warren Buffett has a few stable American companies in his portfolio that he has kept for a very long time, and with good reason. One of the most profitable for Warren has been his stock in Apple (NASDAQ: AAPL), which he has carried since long before Steve Jobs passed away. While Warren Buffett is not keen on technology and is not really an investor of technology stocks he did see the value in Apple even when it was in its downturn and Steve Jobs had been tasked with turning the failing company around.

Warren also has a strong position in Kraft Heinz, which is one of the most well-known food production companies in the world. This position stays true to Warren’s loyalty to well known American brands, and the fact that he will stay with a stock for the long term. This is also evident in his long-term position with Coca-Cola as well, and these are just some of the long-term positions that Warren Buffett has in his portfolio for 2017.
