Bernanke’s stock holdings and some comparisons

Ramit Sethi Ramit Sethi · October 27th, 2005

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.

    Yeah, your charts are entirely biased – MO goes all the way to something to like 1925. Lets see a percentage gain chart since then… I suspect it crushes MSFT…
