Most of Gundlach’s 2018 Calls Were Spot On—What about 2019?(Continued from Prior Part)## Gundlach called Bitcoin’s crashJeffrey Gundlach correctly called Bitcoin’s (BTC) crash after the cryptocurrency’s peak in December 2017.

Warren Buffett, Berkshire Hathaway’s (BRK-B) chair, has been critical of cryptocurrencies. Last year, he called Bitcoin “rat poison squared.” He also said, “In terms of cryptocurrencies, generally, I can say with almost certainty that they will come to a bad ending.”## Gundlach: 25% upside in BitcoinHowever, in contrast to his view on Bitcoin for 2018, Gundlach predicted that Bitcoin could easily rise 25% and return to the $5,000 price point.
