Bernanke’s stock holdings and some comparisons

October 27th, 2005 - 1 Comment

I was reading “What’s in Bernanke’s Wallet?
A psycho-financial analysis of Fed chair nominee Ben Bernanke
” this morning and found it pretty interesting.

Henry Blodget, the infamous writer, was commenting about how Bernanke only has one stock (Altria), and how it reflects negatively on his intelligence/abilities as the future Fed.

To which Craig Newmark replied, “Yo, Henry, take another look at the chart.”

Here’s the chart of Altria:

I started playing around with some others stocks because I’m a big dork, and I got some interesting comparisons.

Feel bad about not getting in early? Well, me too. But imagine what today’s great companies will look like 30 years from now.
