“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 DISH Network Corp (NASD: DISH)? Today, we examine the outcome of a five year investment into the stock back in 2016.
|Average annual return:||-3.65%|
As shown above, the five year investment result worked out poorly, with an annualized rate of return of -3.65%. This would have turned a $10K investment made 5 years ago into $8,303.45 today (as of 08/09/2021). On a total return basis, that’s a result of -16.95% (something to think about: how might DISH shares perform over the next 5 years?).
