Stingy News Flash
If you're in Toronto from April 23 to April 26, you might want to enjoy a bit of Fairfax Lollapalooza 2018. There are a variety of events to chose from and an overview can be found at ...

Value stocks during a soft patch
"Buying into a strategy like value investing, or a fund like that offered by Mr. Chou, is easy to do after a strong run. It's much harder after a weak period. But buying during a soft patch may lead to generous returns." [$]
Things I'm pretty sure about
"Some of the richest people are the worst money managers I've seen. When money loses the power of scarcity you stop caring about leaks that are meaningful when you're poorer. And when your life gets complicated you're more likely to outsource decisions to middlemen who may not have your best interest at heart. It's an overlooked irony. 'Enough money to care but not enough to not care' is the sweet spot for management." [Behaviour]
Peter Kaufman talks about thinking
"I tried to learn what Munger calls, 'the big ideas' from all the different disciplines. Right up front I want to tell you my trick was, because if you try to do it the way he did it you don't have enough time in your life to do it. It's impossible. Because the fields are too big and the books are too thick." [Behaviour]
