Canada’s Versions of Berkshire Hathaway

June 17, 2013 – Comments (0) | RELATED TICKERS: PRGAF , GWLIF , IGIFF

Berkshire Hathaway and its legendary chairman-CEO Warren Buffett are two of the most discussed topics in the entire U.S. stock market. And why shouldn’t they be? Under Warren Buffett’s leadership, a failing investment in a textile manufacturer turned into one of best collections of subsidiary companies in the world. This is a great story to discuss, but a story that is not limited only to the U.S. stock market. In Canada, a similar story can be told.  [more]

With the success of Berkshire, it should come to no surprise that investors are always on the lookout for the next Berkshire Hathaway-like company.  [more]

Taking the Ten Year Buffett Challenge

May 01, 2013 – Comments (2) | RELATED TICKERS: DANOY

With Berkshire Hathaway’s annual shareholder meeting almost upon us, I am reminded of this investing gem Warren Buffett once said: “Only buy something that you’d be perfectly happy to hold if the market shut down for ten years.” That bit of advice is beautiful in its simplicity. Buffett is challenging us to think long-term with every investment decision. That is a challenge we should all accept; constructing ten year portfolios that would make the Oracle of Omaha proud.  [more]

Berkshire Hathaway’s annual shareholder meeting is quickly approaching and I am reminded of Warren Buffett’s famous quote from 8 years ago: “Be fearful when others are greedy and greedy when others are fearful.” That second part is easier said than done, as it is extremely difficult to have the financial courage to run towards danger when everybody else is fleeing from it at full speed. But that kind of financial courage often presents the best opportunities to make the most money.  [more]
