The student becomes the master

The little nephew of Warren Buffett delivers, since the beginning of the year, better stock exchange performances than his great-uncle. Boston Omaha (BOMN), the holding company co-managed by Alex Buffett Rozek, has posted a performance of +21.7% since January 1, compared to +19.7% for Berkshire Hathaway.

However, like his great-uncle, Alex Buffett seems to opt for a GARP value strategy. In the Boston Omaha portfolio, we do not find any trendy growth stocks such as Tesla, Robinhood or Square, but companies specialized in specific sectors. Real estate, insurance, billboards or fiber optics... Sectors that are much less enticing, but the good opportunities are rarely in plain sight.

However, before we can consider that the student has really surpassed the master, it will be necessary to repeat such performances over the next 40 years. That's what made Berkshire Hathaway worth $602 billion, or about 500 times the weight of Boston Omaha. The ability to beat the Oracle of Omaha is measured over time.
