“Only buy something that you’d be perfectly happy to hold if the market shut down for 10 years.”
— Warren Buffett
The Warren Buffett investment philosophy calls for a long-term investment horizon, where a ten year holding period, or even longer, would fit right into the strategy. How would such a strategy have worked out for an investment into United Airlines Holdings Inc (NASD: UAL)? Today, we examine the outcome of a ten year investment into the stock back in 2010.
|Average annual return:||0.17%|
As we can see, the ten year investment result worked out as follows, with an annualized rate of return of 0.17%. This would have turned a $10K investment made 10 years ago into $10,171.31 today (as of 05/14/2020). On a total return basis, that’s a result of 1.75% (something to think about: how might UAL shares perform over the next 10 years?).
