“Someone’s sitting in the shade today because someone planted a tree a long time ago.”
— Warren Buffett
The Warren Buffett investment philosophy calls for a long-term investment horizon, where a twenty year holding period, or even longer, would fit right into the strategy. How would such a strategy have worked out for an investment into Micron Technology Inc. (NASD: MU)? Today, we examine the outcome of a twenty year investment into the stock back in 2000.
|Average annual return:||2.60%|
As shown above, the twenty year investment result worked out as follows, with an annualized rate of return of 2.60%. This would have turned a $10K investment made 20 years ago into $16,711.23 today (as of 10/23/2020). On a total return basis, that’s a result of 67.11% (something to think about: how might MU shares perform over the next 20 years?).
