“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 F5 Inc (NASD: FFIV)? Today, we examine the outcome of a ten year investment into the stock back in 2012.
|Average annual return:||2.94%|
The above analysis shows the ten year investment result worked out as follows, with an annualized rate of return of 2.94%. This would have turned a $10K investment made 10 years ago into $13,361.08 today (as of 09/22/2022). On a total return basis, that’s a result of 33.60% (something to think about: how might FFIV shares perform over the next 10 years?).
