Why looking at past 10 years record and investing in such large cap proven stocks is not great method.
Sometimes coffee may not smell right. These are largest global companies in 2000. Gave great 2 decades run from 1980. Now it's 20 years. Return frm 2000 is "ZERO".

While it was real giant , competitor acquring and globally expanding , food chain tie ups company also endorsed product by Warren , it failed to give great returns to shareholder of 1996/98 , thinking abt it as decadal bet with prior records n numbers.
