In Prem Watsa I trust. His best performance ever was in the 08-09 financial crisis, and since then the stock has hardly moved. Prem has his equity portfolio 100% hedged, so it may be another couple years of minimal returns while the mo-mo market continues, but I trust him not to lose money in the meantime (they write insurance at a profit), and be well positioned so that when the inevitable sentiment shift happens we stand ready to reap large profits.

This stock will outperform the S&P 500 in the long run. This is shown naturally in graphical data of the S&P. Though most Components of the S&P fluctuate the index up.

This is an excellent company. The insurance companies took a hit last year due to the large amount of natural disasters, so the stock is undervalued. This makes it even more undervalued

I like Fairfax here. An improving insurnace business that will eventually have some tailwinds in pricing. A smart investor never hurts and I like their chances vs. the S & P 500 over the next several years.

Similar ideal to Berkshire (and leucadia and merkel (sp?). Currently hedging his investments. Returns for next quarter are already built in.

Prem Watsa is a smart man who has consistently smoked the S&P. Canadian company is well positioned globally.

What gives? Fairfax sells below book.

This is the same company run by the guy, Prem Watso, who made a $1 billion dollar bet against housing and won.

This in the middle of a bull market in which crap stocks like Biglari Holdings trades at a huge premium to book?

To sum it up; Prem Watsa.

Value is there too.. FFX is undervalued relative to Berkshire and AFLAC based on BV

Outperforming the S&P over a long-term investment horizon should be a no brainer.

-Fairfax Financial Holdings Limited (Public, TSE:FFH)
Stability: ****

Found via Seeking Alpha member "Tim Ayles"

My Opinion:
This is one of the best financial company I can think of...
FairFax is exceptionally strong, high quality financial company. This is a "Hedge Company" -- like a hedge fund, but traded on a stock exchange available for the retail investors.

Their leader, Prem Watsa is the "Warren Buffett of Canada".

Just because it sells at a "Pink Sheets" in the U.S usually turns me away, but this one is a Canadian company listed in Toronto Stock Exchange. Also it's $9 Billion dollar valuation makes it a big one.
FairFax is 3-in-1: Holding + Insurance + Hedge Fund.

3rd Party Analysis:
Just One Stock: 'Canada's Warren Buffett', Fairfax Financial Holdings: (3.10.2010)
http://seekingalpha.com/article/225041-just-one-stock-hitching-a-ride-on-returns-of-canada-s-warren-buffett

At about $400/share it is a quality play at a reasonable price.

Two reasons:
1) Undervalued by 50% or so.
2) The Canadian Warren Buffett runs it.
