  1. Well, I guess he isn't after all: https://bleacherreport.com/articles/10099175-mark-cuban-no-chance-ill-run-for-president-after-mavericks-sale-shark-tank-exit?utm_source=cnn.com&utm_medium=referral&utm_campaign=editorial Too bad! Hey but Prime Minister is available! Cheers!
  2. I think he's going to run as a Presidential candidate. Cheers!
  3. What's amazing about both Buffett & Munger is that for such old men, they have the most uncanny comic timing with younger people, and can make the most rational ideas starkly apparent to laymen. That's a rare gift...to be able to teach people while entertaining them, and hopefully make them better human beings at the end of it! Cheers!
  4. I still feel sad to this day about Robin Williams...went well before his time...one of the greatest comics of all time, as well as a superb actor! Whereas Munger lived a full life, so it doesn't sting as badly. Either way, the loss of both is a loss for society! Cheers!
  5. Yeah, Bucee's is one we want, alongside In & Out and Chik-Fil-A! Cheers!
  6. My brother suggested this one today...great song...gets you hooked right away! Cheers!
  7. Feel free to post your best Munger quotes, interviews, barbs, etc on this thread. Here is one of my favorites from his last Wesco meeting in 2011: https://www.thinkadvisor.com/2011/07/05/berkshires-munger-retires-from-cult/ Cheers!
  8. https://www.berkshirehathaway.com/news/nov2823.pdf Berkshire press release. Cheers!
  9. https://www.bloomberg.com/news/articles/2023-11-28/charles-munger-who-helped-buffett-build-berkshire-dies-at-99 How much knowledge we gained from him, and how much more left we will never receive! Happy for his long wonderful life, but very sad he's gone. Cheers Charlie!
  10. No conflict. The obvious answer is to own FFH, which benefits from Fairfax India or Africa. That's what I did...sold any India I owned and switched it all to FFH. I then have the Indian exposure and still benefit from the fees. The funds are really meant for retail clients or FFH shareholders who want additional exposure to those regions. Cheers!
  11. Real estate listings supply is also increasing in Vancouver with prices flat or starting to decrease. We're seeing increased volume on assignments of pre-built condo contracts. Car prices are falling here in Vancouver, but only a few dealers have offered lower interest rates on the loans. The rates have come down for leases of new cars (you can find offers in the 2.99-4.99% range, but used car financing remains expensive in the 7-9% range. Like I said last week...grocery prices are starting to come down. We've also seen 4 consecutive weeks of falling gas prices. Plenty of deals were offered on Black Friday and Cyber Monday...stores were relatively busy. Cheers!

    I was referencing the cartoon, which suggested that Bernanke was dropping money from a helicopter, and was defending his actions. Cheers!
  13. https://finance.yahoo.com/news/unit-benko-signa-prime-files-165026782.html Cheers!
  14. Canada too! Cheers! https://finance.yahoo.com/news/canada-retail-sales-jump-0-133001320.html
  15. Shoppers are spending money this year so far! Cheers! https://finance.yahoo.com/news/energized-shoppers-break-one-day-190741866.html
