Warren Buffett is having an unusually bad year

 It hasn't been a banner year for the Oracle of Omaha


Warren Buffett has seen shares of his Berkshire Hathaway fall more than 11 percent this year. Even worse, Berkshire shares have underperformed the S&P 500 by more than 10 percent.

What makes this highly unusual is that Berkshire famously tends to underperform when the S&P skyrockets and outperform when the stocks as a whole do less well, which makes sense given Buffett's long-term time frame. Indeed, Buffett is well known for instructing investors: "Be fearful when others are greedy and be greedy when others are fearful."

This year, however, the S&P is slightly lower, with a 0.4 percent decline. And while there is still a month and a half left in 2015, it is notable that this would mark the first year that Berkshire A shares have underperformed in a down year for the S&P 500 since 1990. (Readers might note that this excludes 2011, when the S&P fell by less than 0.05 percent.)

  1. Ya lol!
    It's always what's your final "CAGR" when you stop investing for the last day of your life that counts.
    Or you abruptly stop for good when your HC is still going very strong.

  2. And there are actually so many ways we give back to the market.
    Is money rotting in the bank counts as one way?
