Might be worth changing the title given there is already a Fairfax 2017 thread.

 

On a 2018 topic, worth highlighting BBRY is worth $1.3bn to Fairfax at yesterday's closing price, assuming conversion of the bonds. Fairfax has much greater upside exposure than it has downside risk given the convert.

How much did they pay for it?

Resolute has quietly tripled....as well.

 

I am betting (large) on Fairfax redemption in 2018...Prem you have talked the talk now walk the walk please! The hold co is now loaded with cash lets see the share count come down substantially in 2018! I will call FFH $1000 this year.

 

Cheers and Happy New year to all!

Good question. from memory (which may well be wrong) they averaged $16-something for the equity. But, above $10, over half their equity now comes from the convert and I don't think that's included in the $16 number. So they are probably around breakeven on a ?5? year position. I'm not saying it has been a great investment. I'm highlighting a) its size now, b) the recent rise, which will be partly hidden in BV because of the convert, and c) the skewed risk in the position because of the convert.

Yes, they sold a few, but 14.70 US$ was the avg. buying price.

 

So total avg buying price is app. 12,35 US$ and total quantity 96,7 m now.

 

BB marketprice today 14,40 US$ = already 198 m unrealized gains

 

 

"Already" $198m in gains?  I hate to say it, but we've been waiting 6 or 7 years to see those gains!  ;)

 

But seriously, for a long time, this one was looking like a permanent loss of capital, so it's nice to see it back in the black.
