Very well-said, Kraven.

Heh. I think you'll find that Kraven was, as they call it, "taking the mickey" out of potential responses.

Best,
Ragu

Of course. It's usually safe to assume that most of what Kraven says in a thread not directly about investing is irony, so I was ironic in return. Guess it doesn't translate well without smileys... :)

Discovered Buffett (and Valueline) in 1994, 19.7% CAGR for 19+ years, 32X, 7 years over 30%, worst year -5%.
Before Buffett I was clueless and sucked, and when I stray occasionally I can still suck.
His comments through 08/09 were golden, may he live to be 120.
Thank you Warren!!!!!!!

Because of him, I realistically expect to beat the market.

This is as opposed to most day traders and such who have a delusional belief that they can beat the market.

Thanks for sharing. I'm 80% BRK, but have not had as long a runway as you have. Since 2006.
Has the other 80% of your pf done as well as BRK?

I will probably retire at an early age since most of my money is in Berkshire.  :)

Some of the important lessons I learned from Buffett and Munger:

1. Circle of Competence: You have to know what you know. I think more than 95% of people overestimate their circle of competence.
2. Focused thinking: If your mind doesn´t tend to focus, nothing will help.
3. Health is more than 95% of success.
4. Try to be likeable.
5. Search for Lollapalooza Effects.
6. Try to contribute something positive to the world.
