We should point out that the S&P 500 is -- growth in this is well.
So as a lot of different stocks and -- when you compare apples to apples with the value index murmured Berkshire Hathaway.
Is a value fund still beating death is still losing -- that now here's the key measurement on the side.
This is deviation that is not that is not anything to do with with what mr.
