Looking for Munger Quote

I'm searching for a Munger quote (could be Buffett) in which he said it would be an intelligent investing strategy to follow 300 companies and wait for a few to go on sale. I swear it was at a Daily Journal meeting, but I've had no luck listening to a few prior meetings. Does anyone remember this comment or am I now dreaming up Mungerisms? Thanks!

He had said he heard from someone who was trying that approach, and he thought it was a perfectly intelligent thing to do - and yet few would be able to do it.

 

Like you, I can't for the life of me remember where he said it. But I'm here to say you're not crazy!  8)

Found it! Thank you LongHaul!

 

It's from the 2014 DJCO AGM.

 

“One person said to me, 'I have a list of 300 potentially attractive stocks, and I constantly watch them, waiting for just one of them to become cheap enough to buy.' Well, that's a reasonable thing to do. But how many people have that kind of discipline? Not one in 100.”
