Warren Buffett and business friend Jamie Dimon argued Thursday that publicly traded businesses can damage their long-term growth and hurt their shareholders by forecasting their earnings every three months and then making short-term decisions to "make the number".
Dimon said companies might forego investments they should make in their business, such as marketing, hiring or research, in order to hit short-term goals.

"Short-term-oriented capital markets have discouraged companies with a longer-term view from going public at all, depriving the economy of innovation and opportunity", they said.
Neither Buffett and Dimon nor the Business Roundtable is arguing against quarterly or annual reports from public companies. Bloomberg LP, the parent of Bloomberg News, is a member of the Boston-based non-profit group.
"It can put a company in a position where management from the CEO down feels obligated to deliver earnings, and therefore may do things that they wouldn't otherwise have done", Dimon said.
