Our latest recommendation for aggressive investors is Restaurant Brands International (QSR), explains growth stock expert Nicholas Vardy in his premium VIP Alliance newsletter.

Hedge fund manager Bill Ackman has an incredible 40.1% of his fund at Pershing Square Capital Management invested in Restaurant Brands International’s stock.

As it turns out, Warren Buffett is also a major investor in the company. Furthermore, private equity firm 3G Capital is the biggest shareholder, owning 42.5% of the shares. The second-largest shareholder, owning 11.6% of QSR, is National Indemnity.

National Indemnity itself is a subsidiary of Warren Buffett's Berkshire Hathaway (BRK-B). Once you look through the ownership structure, together, 3G and Berkshire own about 54% of the stock. That means that 3G and Berkshire together control the company.

Technically, Restaurant Brands International is in a strong uptrend and scores 100% on my short-, medium- and long-term technical indicators.
