Warren Buffett’s new annual letter to Berkshire Hathaway (BRK.A) shareholders opened with a thoughtful tribute to Charlie Munger, his long-time partner who died in November. He highlighted the huge impact Munger had on how he thought about investing – including the “cigar butt” theory, writes Sam Ro, editor of TKer.
Stocks are making new record highs, with the S&P 500 now up 5.4% year to date and up 40.5% from its October 12, 2022 closing low of 3,577.03. While the data in aggregate continues to confirm the economy is in pretty good shape, some of the data show it isn’t quite as hot as it used to be. One set of metrics that has been deteriorating over the past couple quarters is debt delinquency rates, writes Sam Ro, editor of TKer.
The stock market recently made new all-time highs when the S&P 500 closed at 4,839.81. This was the first new high since the S&P closed at 4,796.56 on January 3, 2022. But believe it or not, the stock market has actually gotten cheaper over this time, notes Sam Ro, editor of TKer.
