The boom in special purpose acquisition companies (SPACs) and flurry of initial public offerings (IPOs) in 2020 and 2021 produced a lot of public companies that are starting to run into serious financial trouble in this difficult economic environment.

In addition to the general cooling off of high-growth stocks, investors are frustrated that SoFi's core student loan refinancing business remains at a virtual standstill, and there are worries that higher interest rates could hurt its lending operations, by far the more profitable side of the business.

It's not a bad idea to check what stocks Warren Buffett's Berkshire Hathaway owns. A $1,000 investment in the company in 1965, when he took over, would have been worth $36 million through 2021. Keep in mind that many of Berkshire's stocks were not selected by Buffett, but were chosen by one of his investing lieutenants, Ted Weschler and Todd Combs, who have also have an impressive investing record.
