The probability Warren Buffett will still be managing Berkshire in six years based on actuarial life tables for 82-year-olds
Seth Klarman’s average cost for pharmaceutical Idenix (IDIX) was $6 per share. The stock is now trading under $3.50 a share while Klarman purchased the stock as recently as February of this year.
The total market capitalization to U.S. GDP. The ratio has nearly doubled from 2009 when stocks could truly be called “deals.”
The Federal Reserve’s take of new Treasury bond issuance. The Fed has been buying some $85 billion in bonds every month or what would amount to over $1 trillion for the year.
The average yield on junk bonds. Terms like covenant-lite loans are also seeing a revival not seen since 2007.
The average return on equity for Tesco PLC (TSCDF) for the past 11 years. The most recent year was the weakest at 8.4%. With Fresh & Easy’s losses out of the picture, future margins (and earnings) should be improved.
The average revenue growth for each of the last three years for Tesco. While there has been pressure on profits from across the Tesco empire, revenues continued marching upwards and never once regressed during the recession.
Buffett reduced his stake in Tesco to 4.98% from 5.08% or some $44 million.
