Warren Buffett is famous for being wary of investing in tech stocks but admitted in an annual shareholder meeting on Saturday that he made a mistake by not buying shares of Alphabet (GOOG) and Amazon (AMZN) . Here is a look at five of the best performing tech stocks in the S&P 500 in the past five years that Buffett and Berkshire (BRK.A) , (BRK.B) also missed out on. Netflix (NFLX) has run up an incredible 1393.77% in the past five years to $155.64. Nvidia (NVDA) came in second place with a 792.26% increase in the past five years to $103.27. Micron Technology (MU) posting gains of 327% in the past five years, just above Amazon's 318.37% gain. Adobe Systems (ADBE) has gained 101.89 points or 313.31% in the past five years to $134.80. Shares of Broadcom (AVGO) have gained 253.31% to $224.92.
Buffett's knowledge of trading seems to have made him a popular man to have lunch with as on anonymous bidder recently paid $2.68 million in an online charity auction to eat with the billionaire investor. With the current global tech stock selloff, this is probably the perfect time to pick the brains of the Berkshire Hathaway chairman.
