  1. Hey Lanny and Bert
    Very good video, Warren Buffet is my investment hero. But still just cannot figure out why he didn’t pull the trigger in March/April or even May to acquire stocks of amazing companies just like Alphabet or Facebook. These are just the kind of businesses (huge economic moat, tremendous cash flows etc.) he wants to add to his portfolio. And in my view easier to understand than for instance the airline business.
    But again, he is my hero and I am still learning.
    Cheers

  2. My Financial Sharpe –

    I completely understand that question.

    We are all still learning. I am not sure if he/his team couldn’t move fast enough or if the Fed did so much this round that he may not have had all of the information yet/could foresee the impact.

    Gosh, I want to be financially free so bad, it’s crazy! Def. those are companies far easier to understand.

    Let’s keep going!

    • Lanny,

      I am with you on wanting to be financial free, really curious to know what your target numbers and age are for that. Is there a post here that I can read or you can share?

      • Stockrider –

        Great question. Honestly, it’s one that I’ve been battling myself to write. My wife and I continue to go back and forth on what that number is. I think it’s more of an age thing for me. I’d like to be completely F.I. by age 35, still have a few years left before then.

        You??

        • It’s a pretty hard question to answer. As I am gaining more experience and building the portfolio, I am realizing that it’s hard to say at what point is “enough” vs staying a little bit longer because your dividend snowball is growing faster over time. I like your age approach, at this point I am approaching it at “staged” levels. My first target to finish is to get the dividends cover my “basic” life necessities (housing, food, etc) nothing that would cover luxuries, which I should hit when I’m roughly 36. By 42 I should hit the “comfort” level where dividends are at a pretty nice level to cover the normal luxuries of going out.

          The way I see it, at any point after 36, I may experiment with a “safety net” in place and I have the option to semi-retirement and try out something like taking on a consulting position where I could perhaps work a 6 month contract instead of working a required job as a FTE. That would still allow me to build the dividend snowball while reducing my required work. It would also give me experience in shaping how my eventual “FIRE” life would be.

          Regardless brother (hogan), we are in a great position for the future whether we F.I. at 35 or later. Unfortunately life isn’t linear and anything can speed up or slow down our path to F.I. but at least we have a backup net behind us!

          • Stockrider –

            I dig it, and hopefully all of the dividend maniacs do too. I like the staggered approach you are suggesting. Start at 36; and then see if you can do the semi-FI lifestyle by working less, earning an income that can still grow the portfolio but having TIME on your side.

            In the end, Time is what it’s all about and what we all want. 4 letters. Time.

  3. We love all things buffet and munger and have studied their decision making for over a decade. He is getting a bad reputation with some with his underperformance lately. We are happy sticking with Berkshire Hathaway and watching these living legends perform.

    • Mr. TPM –

      I agree, he definitely has been taking a beating with OXY, KHC, D lately. If it’s like baseball, I am sure he’s going to be getting on base fairly soon. He is a legend, no doubt about that.
