Letter # 70 | 11 January 2022 |
We present two stories to convey how we often fall for Resulting; i.e., just because the ‘results’ were good, we create a narrative that it is because our ‘decisions’ were good.
As investors too, we often fall for Resulting. Sectors perform in cycles, but we create a narrative that our insights led to superior returns. Sadly, the narrative does not hold in the long run, and the portfolio suffers.
In the chart, while we are referring to the Capital Goods sector between 2000 to 2007, can you guess which sector we are referring to between 2016 to 2019?
