    Warren Buffett mini-series #5: “No Means No"

    Warren Buffett mini-series #5: “No Means No"

    In this episode, Pete and Steve chat about how Buffett has been able to succeed by saying no to a majority of investing themes and remaining through thick and thin to his investment style.

    Many investors especially when first starting out, say yes to everything and often come to the conclusion that saying no more often than yes leads to investment success. Again Pete and Steve demonstrate that simple principles and the avoidance of complexity in investing is the best approach.

    They discuss a range of criteria that along with Buffett, you should say no to. And also ask a more philosophical question about what success actually is.

    Warren Buffett mini-series #4: “Only invest in 'simple businesses' that you understand”

    Warren Buffett mini-series #4: “Only invest in 'simple businesses' that you understand”

    In this episode, Pete and Steve discuss each of Warren Buffett's criteria of what constitutes a "simple" business.

    (1) Large purchases and large companies,
    (2) Demonstrated consistent earning power,
    (3) Businesses earning good returns on equity while employing little or no debt,
    (4) Management in place (we can’t supply it),
    (5) Simple businesses (if there’s lots of technology, we won’t understand it),
    (6) An offering price.

    We then summarise whether all of these have the same importance and which ones may be more important.

    Warren Buffett mini-series #3: Be fearful when others are greedy & greedy when others are fearful

    In this episode, Pete and Steve discuss Buffett's quote "be fearful when others are greedy and greedy when others are fearful".

    They discuss Buffett's musing about the value of the stock market overall;
    his understanding and the way he takes advantage of other investors emotions and how he uses logic as a central part of his steadfast conviction that price follows value;
    How CAPE can assist in considering when to enter and exit markets;
    and finally Buffett's favourite macro valuation metric and what you need to do to be able to be fearful when others are greedy and greedy when they are fearful.

    Warren Buffett mini-series #2: Price is what you pay, value is what you get

    "Price is what you pay, and value is what you get". So says the master Warren Buffett.

    In this episode Pete and Steve discuss what exactly Buffett thinks about price and value and what do they really mean for investors. We also discuss value in both the micro and macro sense and also a discussion on how Buffett thinks about value. And of course, we chat about our old favourite the CAPE ratio and how it ties to the idea of value.

Excellent insights into what it really means to be a contrarian safely

Steve and Pete know their stuff. I love the off-the-cuff references to books, experts, and methods referred to in every episode. I also bought the book and highly recommend it for more detail. It's true that they are always in agreement, but that's what is so convincing: they're happy to team up and go against prevailing generic wisdom. Obviously it's not meant to be taken as "advice" but the principles will help you think more deeply about where you place your hard-earned cash...
