Berkshire Hathaway stock has underperformed the S&P 500 for the past decade. By a recent calculation, Berkshire’s stock has risen by nearly 260% versus the market’s more than 300% advance in the decade ended in 2018.

Despite Berkshire’s stunning record since 1965, 21% compounded annualized gains, this is not the first time that the company’s shares have underperformed the market for a decade. It’s happened several times in recent years.

Berkshire has outperformed the market by double digits in every trailing ten year period since 1978. But it hasn’t had a double-digit advantage since 2002, and in recent years it has underperformed the market in three ten year spans.

Are Berkshire Hathaway’s best years behind it? Great investor and long-time holder, Tom Russo responds.
