Welcome to Episode 2 of the "Becoming Buffett" Series!

This week we discuss the 1966 letter to Berkshire Hathaway shareholders.

Buffett's annual letters book: http://amzn.to/2ogVi4U

 

Some brief notes:

1966

“It has always been among the goals of BH to maintain a strong financial position.”

  • Remember, we are business owners.
  • The management of our family’s finances and investment is a business.
  • We must not make the mistake of degrading our situation with false mindsets that lead us to any other thinking.
  • The term “personal finance” seems almost inane (boring and worthy to be ignored), but the term “corporate finance” has the air of grandeur.
  • We cannot make that mistake.
  • The management of our personal finances is a business endeavor that must be taken seriously
  • In Buffett’s 1966 letter (not signed by Buffett) we see why.
  • This is the letter that plants the seeds for the birth of BH as we now know it
  • The meat of the letter is the company’s intentions to have a strong financial position and be poised to act when acquisition opportunities arise
  • Is the same true for YOU and ME?
  • Another point I want to make is the chart I mentioned last week showing the companies that BH has acquired since 1965.
  • I count 59 companies over 50 years.
  • How does that compare to your portfolio?
  • Why don’t we buy like this?
  • The Entrepreneur to Mutual Fund of Mutual Funds continuum
  • The less info we have, the more diversified we should be
  • Knowledge/understanding = conviction = concentration of assets
