Citigroup Likes the Fit of Warren Buffett's Underwear

Currently, the company is paring debt and implementing a strategy to increase prices and profit margins throughout its array of underwear and garment products, according to Anderson.

"We believe a solid dividend (barring changes to dividend taxes), share repurchases, and bolt-on acquisitions are all part of this strategy," the analyst adds.

Anderson gives Hanesbrands a $37 a share price target, but says the company could see shares rise as high as $50, were commodity price inflation to pass and earnings to grow as expected.

Also see why improving earnings per share math at Goldman Sachs as may give Buffett reason to begin putting money behind the common stock of Wall Street titans.

In the third quarter, Berkshire Hathaway opened a position in machinery giant John Deere (DE ) and the investing conglomerate pared most of what one was a multi-billion dollar stake in healthcare giant Johnson & Johnson (JNJ )
