BYD tops the list

Over the past five years through Dec. 20, the S&P 500 has risen 54.2% to Friday’s closing price of $3,221.22. A 41% growth in the earnings per share (not inflation-adjusted) of the benchmark for U.S. markets acted as the main catalyst throughout the whole observed period.

Past performance is not a guarantee for future results, but picking stocks that outperformed the S&P 500 in terms of higher earnings per share growth enhances the likelihood of finding stocks that will continue to increase their profitability, which will push share prices higher.

2 important takeaways from Li Lu's latest speech

Previously I shared the notes I took from Li Lu’s speech at Peking University in late November. It was an absolutely fantastic value investing session, one of the best I’ve ever heard. Some readers have asked whether the video is available somewhere on the internet. Unfortunately at this point, neither the video nor the transcripts are available anywhere. My guess is that in the future, the Chinese version of the transcript will be available.

Another reader asked whether it’s possible to know of this event in advance. Unfortunately, the answer is also no. Based on my knowledge, this was

Shenzhen-based electric battery maker Warren Buffett backed a decade ago has erased the gains it made since September

A Shenzhen-based electric battery maker Warren Buffett (Trades, Portfolio) backed a decade ago has erased the gains it made since September in a tumultuous year that at one point saw the stock rise high enough to land it as one of his largest holdings.

Buffett invested $232 million into BYD Co. Ltd. (OTCPK:BYDDY) in September 2008, taking a 10% stake with 225 million shares for about HK$8, or US$1, each. In his shareholder letter that year, Buffett called it in passing, “an amazing Chinese company.” Slightly more than one year later, in October 2009, the company’s stock

Back in 2008, Warren Buffett (Trades, Portfolio), at the behest of his long-time friend and partner Charlie Munger (Trades, Portfolio), acquired a 9.9% stake in China’s battery and electric car company BYD Co. Ltd. (HKSE:01211). The stock abruptly soared but, unlike most of his investments, promptly plunged back down as trouble hit the company. Five years later, BYD appears to be showing signs of progress and Buffett’s investment is beginning to multiply.

Buffett first addressed his BYD holding in his 2008 shareholder letter, casually mentioning that at his annual shareholder meeting, “The future will

“BYD (BYDDY) could make a Tesla (TSLA) any minute if consumer demand for electric cars really ramps up.” That was the latest bold claim by Wang Chuanfu, chairman of BYD Co. Ltd. (BYDDY), a technology and manufacturing firm with diverse operations in IT, automobile and new energy. During BYD’s recent over-crowded annual meeting on June 7, 2013, Mr. Wang acknowledged Tesla Motors’ astonishing success at developing high-end electric cars, changing consumer buying habits, and training environmentally conscious drivers.
