There’s no denying that Warren Buffett loves stocks.
America’s favorite value investor has continued to drive his own personal wealth, as well as Berkshire Hathaway (BRK-B ) shareholders’ wealth, by betting big on U.S. equities. BRK’s portfolio is chocked full of strong leaders in their respective sectors. So, there’s no doubt that Buffett believes that holding stocks are the way to go for the long haul. And when it comes to allocating assets, Buffett is pretty bullish.
Try 90% bullish.
Buffett first gave a framework for his recommended stock-to-bond allocation in a Berkshire shareholder letter. That allocation places a 90% weighting towards U.S. equities. Recently hitting the interview circuit, Buffett has once again reiterated his call for the allocation.
The question for investors is whether or not Buffett’s big bet on U.S. equities makes sense.
