In this article we are going to share our list of the top 5 best stocks to buy now for beginner investors, based on Insider Monkey’s article. Insider Monkey has been watching the top stock picks of hedge funds, and managed to beat the market consistently in the past few years. For instance, billionaire Warren Buffett’s advice for beginners investors is to buy an S&P 500 Index fund and stay invested no matter what happens. It’s really fair advice, since the investment of the beginners will gain profits from the rising markets on the long run, and will generate the average return of an average investor.

Consequently, we can observe their stock picks and can imitate them.
