I accept the criticism that total return is a better way to measure it.

And I accept your Morningstar chart for 15 years rather than try to figure out total returns for 21 years.

That being said, it looks like Buffetts total return for 15 years not only beat the dow, it also beat the S&P 500 by 2.34 over the same 15 years.

Is there any reason you selected only the midcap 400 for comparison?
