Buffet’s requirement to be capital efficient: ratios
September 28th, 2022
The best investor of all time, Warren Buffet, talks about investing in “capital efficient” businesses. Coca Cola falls into this category since it generates great sums of cash with minimal investment in capital. It also pays dividends. The story goes Buffet purchased a “gazillion” shares of coke in the crash of ’87 and despite shares tripling in value since then he has never sold a share.
How is this “capital efficient” concept related to the ratios in this discussion? Which ones would signal “buy to Buffet” and why?
