Is 21 years a long span of time?A point of quick clarification. The chart you use is biased since Yahoo only shows price change and not reinvested dividends. When you compare BRKA (which does not pay a div) to something like the DOW, but then exclude the dividend, it will always make the DOW look worse.Use Morningstar instead as it will reflect the DOW dividends reinvested.When you do that, BRKA is still better but not by 1000+%.BRK indeed beat the DOW by 0.93% average over the last 15 years, but it lagged the S&P MidCap 400 by 2% average over the last 15 years.http://performance.morningstar.com/stock/performance-return....And, since BRKA is up an average of just 1% over the last 5 yrs, Wendy's comment about the Fed retains merit.
