“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 Monster Beverage Corp (NASD: MNST)? Today, we examine the outcome of a ten year investment into the stock back in 2011.
|Average annual return:||25.07%|
The above analysis shows the ten year investment result worked out exceptionally well, with an annualized rate of return of 25.07%. This would have turned a $10K investment made 10 years ago into $93,769.98 today (as of 03/22/2021). On a total return basis, that’s a result of 837.37% (something to think about: how might MNST shares perform over the next 10 years?).

Another great investment quote to think about:
“Buy not on optimism, but on arithmetic.” — Benjamin Graham
