Stocks B / Berkshire Hathaway

IBM started around $130's and ended around $130's. This is during a decade where cloud, big data, AI all exploded. The only saving grace is the dividend.

Just contrast this performance with AMZN, or MSFT you will see the difference of who won the technology war. The important lesson for investors is, in my opinion, if the underlying business is not doing good, then the stock is not going to do good, you can trade in and out, but long-term it will be a poor investment.
