“I buy on the assumption that they could close the market the next day and not reopen it for five years.”
— Warren Buffett
The Warren Buffett investment philosophy calls for a long-term investment horizon, where a five year holding period, or even longer, would fit right into the strategy. How would such a strategy have worked out for an investment into Discovery Inc (NASD: DISCK)? Today, we examine the outcome of a five year investment into the stock back in 2014.
|Average annual return:||-2.64%|
As we can see, the five year investment result worked out poorly, with an annualized rate of return of -2.64%. This would have turned a $10K investment made 5 years ago into $8,747.88 today (as of 12/02/2019). On a total return basis, that’s a result of -12.54% (something to think about: how might DISCK shares perform over the next 5 years?). [These numbers were computed with the Dividend Channel DRIP Returns Calculator.]
