Whenever a question like this is asked, or at least whenever I've asked that question, it's been more of "Everything looks good to me but the price is dropping...am I missing something?"

Thanks for the points Iíll look into it

The stock has done 11 percent in 5 years point to point. In that same time I have created and grown  my own quite profitable small business from the ground up point to point. I donít get it.  I sure grew my book value at least 15% per year . And it shows. Five years to me is a long time.

You are comparing FFH's stock price to your business's book value...

Presumably you didnít lose billions by shorting equities in one of historyís great bull markets. Itís pretty clear what drove Fairfax for the last 5 years. Question is, what about the next 5?

Let's make it 10, 15 or even 20 years, ref. Pete.

One has to make a personal judgement, as always - forward looking is the real point here, I think.
