    316- Berkshire Hathaway Meeting Highlights and Implications Part 2

    316- Berkshire Hathaway Meeting Highlights and Implications Part 2

    The Berkshire Hathaway Annual Shareholder Meeting took place on Saturday, May 1, featuring Warren Buffett and Charlie Munger. In this episode, Phil and Danielle discuss more of the major highlights from the meeting.

    In the meeting, Buffett discussed his significant investment in Chevron.

    "I think Chevron has benefited society in all kinds of ways, and I think it continues to do so," said Buffett. "We're going to need a lot of hydrocarbons for a long time, and we'll be very glad we've got them."

    While Buffett also stated, "Chevron is not an evil company in the least and I have no compunction about owning Chevron. If we owned the entire business, I would not feel uncomfortable about being in that business."

    This poses the question regarding investing with your values. Our personal values are incredibly important to successful investing. Almost no one talks about how to connect your values or your heart to where your money is going.

    Remember that wherever you’re putting your money is what is going to grow in the world. And by making the decision to invest based on our personal values, we can change the world radically. Probably faster than any single thing we could do is to put our money where our values are.

    Rule #1 investors only buy companies that we really want to see in the world. Now, how do you know what your values are? Your values are what you do. Your values are not what you say you’re going to do.

    315- Berkshire Hathaway Meeting Highlights and Implications

    The Berkshire Hathaway Annual Shareholder Meeting took place on Saturday, May 1, featuring Warren Buffett and Charlie Munger. In this episode, Phil and Danielle discuss some of the major highlights from the meeting.

    Munger took an aim at bitcoin and cryptocurrencies during the conglomerate’s annual meeting on Saturday, stating “I think the whole damn development is disgusting and contrary to the interests of civilization.”

    Buffett and Munger also discussed potential tax hikes from the Biden administration, and expressed not being concerned about them. Buffett mentioned that some companies try to fear-monger by saying the tax rates will be passed through to customers.

    “It's corporate fiction when they put out statements about the fact that it will be terrible for all of you people,” Buffett said.

    Buffett also stated that there is a lot more to investing than picking a budding or trending industry. Buffett warned newbie investors, and Phil and Danielle have always agreed with this take on smart investing. 

    Listen to this InvestED podcast today to hear more highlights, and Phil and Danielle’s takeaways on the topics discussed in the Berkshire Hathaway Annual Shareholder Meeting. 

    Rule #1 has been built on the principles of a proven investing method used for the last 80 years by successful investors like Buffett. To invest the Rule #1 way means to “Never Lose Money,” but what it means in practical terms is to invest with certainty. Certainty comes from this: buying a wonderful business at an attractive price. The word wonderful actually encompasses three out of four elements in the Four Ms: Meaning, Moat, Management, and Margin of Safety.

    314- Don’t Fear Market Drops!

    314- Don’t Fear Market Drops!

    The stock market crash of 2020 began on Monday, March 9, with history’s largest point plunge for the Dow Jones Industrial Average (DJIA) up to that date. Some investors were scared or nervous but Rule #1 investors, like Danielle, were actually excited about the drop. She is confident in her investing decisions and realized it was an excellent opportunity to load up on more great companies.

    The market runs in cycles. It goes up, it goes down. But we have to look beyond the charts. 

    While the cycles give us warning signs of potential crashes, predicting the market is not an exact science. The economy reacts to more than just the market cycles. You need to have the perfect storm — many events and economic conditions coming together — for a drop to happen. 

    The important thing is to be prepared for whatever may happen in the market. Keep on saving for retirement and keep on making good investment decisions. Rule #1 investors know how to take advantage of all kinds of economic conditions, including market drops.

    If you understand the principles of Rule #1 investing, you will find opportunities to increase your long-term wealth. Rule #1 investors do not fear market crashes. They know that downturns provide the best buying opportunities.

    Today, Phil and Danielle discuss how to look at the market objectively so you have an advantage over other investors during a market drop.

    313- Bernie Madoff - Dead at 82

    313- Bernie Madoff - Dead at 82

    If you haven’t heard the news already, Bernard Madoff has just passed away at the age of 82 in a federal prison hospital in Butner, North Carolina. For more than 50 years, Bernie Madoff was renowned on Wall Street as a big money manager who founded his own firm at age 22 and became non-executive chairman of the Nasdaq in 1990.

    Madoff was famously known for running the largest and possibly most devastating Ponzi scheme in financial history.

    He defrauded thousands of investors out of tens of billions of dollars over the course of about 17 years. Madoff was busted on December 11, 2008 after his two sons turned him in. 

    Victims included director Steven Spielberg, actor Kevin Bacon, former New York Mets owner Fred Wilpon, Hall of Fame pitcher Sandy Koufax and Nobel Peace Prize winner Elie Weisel, as well as ordinary investors like Burt Ross who lost $5 million in the scheme. 

    In a 2013 email to CNBC from prison, Madoff mentioned that the break in the market that started the Great Recession led to his scam.

    “I thought this would be only a short-term trade which could be made up once the market became receptive. The rest is my tragic history of never being able to recover.”
    In today’s podcast, Phil and Danielle discuss Bernie Madoff and his scheme that led to the nation’s largest financial fraud in history,

    312- Bonds vs. Stock Investing

    312- Bonds vs. Stock Investing

    According to Phil and other value investors, investing should always essentially involve the same principles — even for non-stock investments like bonds. Putting your money where your values are, buying investments at a discount, and being able to move through different types of assets fluidly. 
     
    For example, bonds and securities are other types of low-risk investments that investors purchase. However, their potential for returns is much lower as well. A bond might only make you a 3% return on your money over multiple years. This means that when you take your money out of the bond, you’ll have less buying power than when you put it in, because the rate of growth didn’t keep up with the price of inflation. 
     
    Bonds can be purchased from the US government, state and city governments, or from individual companies. Mortgage-backed securities are a type of bond typically issued by an agency of the U.S. government, but can also be issued by private firms. 
     
    When you purchase a bond, you are essentially loaning money to either a company or the government. For U.S. investors, this is typically the U.S. government, though you can buy foreign bonds as well. The government or company selling you the bond will then pay you interest on the “loan” over the duration of the bond’s life cycle.
     
    Corporate bonds are slightly riskier than government bonds because there’s more risk of a corporation defaulting on the loan. Unlike when you invest in a corporation by purchasing its stock, purchasing a corporate bond doesn’t give you any ownership of that company.
     
    In today’s podcast, Phil and Danielle discuss bonds, and why the best investments to make for yourself depend on your risk tolerance, level of understanding of certain markets, timeline, and reason for investing.

    311- Is Doomsday Coming?

    311- Is Doomsday Coming?

    Warren Buffett is currently sitting on about $150 billion in cash. Could this mean that doomsday — or a major market correction — is coming?

    Most of the time, successful investing is a waiting game. Just as there are poor times to sell your stocks, there are poor times to buy them as well. And sitting on cash while you wait for a better opportunity is often one of the best investing decisions that you can make.

    As Rule #1 investors, we try to invest in companies that have at least a 50% margin of safety, meaning that there is at least a 50% upside between the company’s stock price and its true value.

    When valuations are as high as they currently are, though, it becomes difficult to find any quality companies that exhibit this margin of safety.

    Looking at the Shiller PE ratio, prices have only been this high twice in the past 140 years. The first time they got this high was in 1929. The second time was in 1999. But we might not be here for much longer. 

    Following the smart money — defined as money from big-time investors who know the market better than anyone — is rarely a bad idea, and right now, these investing gurus aren’t putting a lot of money into the market. Instead, the majority of the money flowing into the market right now is coming from retail investors.

    While these retail investors are buying stocks faster than ever before, the big investing gurus are sitting on their cash. This alone is a pretty good indication that right now might not be the best time to buy into the market.

    As Rule #1 investors, we like to find companies that are solid enough to survive and thrive no matter what the market does. When a major market correction, as the one that is very likely on the horizon drives the price of these companies down, the opportunity for great returns is higher than ever.

    Will the stock market crash? What are you going to do if it does? Today, Phil and Danielle discuss what investors should look out for in the stock market, and how to prepare for a potential doomsday.

    This Stock Market Crash Survival Guide will help you prepare for the next market crash and help you cash in when the market drops: https://bit.ly/3dDUfnF

Eye-opening

Give it time and really start at the beginning! Jumping in somewhere in the middle or at the last episode will be confusing. The set-up is educational which means you got to start with episode 1.

I work as a financial advisor at a bank, applying the efficient market theory in my everyday work like everyone else. This podcast helped me grasp the other side of the market movements and understanding the ways of longterm investing in a whole new way. Now I have a platform to use when it comes to really get the value of companies!

Hope it gets more focused

I listened to listened to almost all the episodes.

The general subject and the ideas in this podcast are very very valuable and in the early episodes the presentation was quite good.
Unfortunately lately this podcast is 70% chit-chat, 20% meaningful information that is off topic and only 10% what the episode actually is promising to talk about. Seriously, I wonder why I haven't unsubscribed already - they can do so much better than this!

Still recomended for the content, but it is a real pain to sometimes listen for hours without getting anywhere in the subject that they are sort-off trying to explain because they are all the time off-topic.
