Buffett calling the top in growth?

Post by pmward » Thu Aug 15, 2019 4:03 pm

Buffett is really loading up on AMZN. Is this the contrarian indicator that growths outperformance has peaked and that we are going to shift into the opposite regime where growth suffers and value relatively out performs? Seeing a big name value guy throw in the towel and start chasing growth has the contrarian in me wondering if this is him calling the top in growth?

Maybe he is thinking this bubble has gotten way to big and there is no good value plays left to be had.

So just the Fear Of Missing Out ;D

Berkshire Hathaway owns $947 million of Amazon. They have $112 BILLION in cash, and says international opportunities may be a better value because the cost of investing in the United States is on the rise.
There's this very disturbing set of studies where about half the articles printed in Science and Nature magazines, the two leading publications, involved experiments that could not be repeated by anybody.

My opinion of Buffett as of late is that when he gets into a company, it's usually a sign that the fortunes of that company are about to turn sour.

Don't get me wrong, love the guy and respect him and all, just.. yeah.
