Has Berkshire Hathaway Moved Away From Value Investing by Investing in Amazon.com?
That was precisely the question asked during the 2019 annual general meeting (AGM) for Berkshire Hathaway, a conglomerate controlled by well-known investors Warren Buffett and Charlie Munger. The Amaz(ing) debate Earlier this month, Berkshire Hathaway revealed that it bought a stake in online retailing giant Amazon.com. Amazon is far from the traditional “value” stock, with a heady price-to-earnings (P/E) ratio of 78. The debatable purchase prompted a question from a shareholder during Berkshire Hathaway’s AGM. The shareholder asked: “With the full understanding that Warren had no input on the Amazon purchase, and that, relative to Berkshire, it’s likely a small stake, the investment still caught me off guard. I’m wondering if I should begin to think differently about Berkshire

How to Build a Passive Income With Blue-Chip Dividend Stocks
Building a passive income from blue-chip dividend stocks is a realistic goal for many investors. Doing so could lead to a worthwhile second income, or increased financial freedom in older age. Of course, there is a temptation to lock-in profits made from successful investments. Similarly, spending dividends received, rather than reinvesting them, may also seem like a good idea in the short run. However, sticking with stocks that are delivering high growth and rising dividends could be the best means of producing a sustainable income in the long run. Reinvesting dividends Although it can be tempting to spend dividends received each year in order to supplement a primary income, the impact of reinvesting them could be far more appealing in the long run. In fact, various studies have shown tha

Quick Thought Of The Week: Wrong
China’s trade surplus with the rest of the world in April was not nearly as good as some economists had predicted. The surplus was only US$13.8 billion, when they had forecast a modest rise from US$32.6 in March to US$35 billion. The experts weren’t doing any better at predicting China’s export number, either. They had forecast a rise of 2.3%. But China’s exports actually fell 2.7% from a year ago. Surprisingly, imports rose 4% from a year ago, which also wrong-footed economists. They had pencilled in a decline of 3.6%. Who would want to be an economist in these difficult times? It’s hard enough trying to calculate the difference between two big numbers at any time. But amid tricky trade negotiations between the US and China, it is no better than sticking a finger in the air to s
