    VGM - in case you are interested, my next article on GNK was published.  I anonymously referred to you, was not sure if you wanted me to mention you by name (user id).

    • Thanks for the article. I agree dividends are likely to rise, particularly if overseas cash is repatriated. And share buybacks too, if the stock remains undervalued.

      However, Buffett did not buy Apple. It was one of his lieutenants, and probably Ted Weschler, according to this piece:

    • Holmes - it's highly dependent upon where the stock was traded. I'm in the UK it where it trades as ULVR.L on Yahoo. ULVR started to rise a few days before the Brexit referendum and never dipped - and on the day after the result it soared and then plateaued for weeks. Do a comparison of UN versus ULVR.L on Yahoo and you'll see.

      It's important to differentiate currency moves from business fundamentals in an analysis in order to derive valid conclusions.

      PS I think you mean Lidl, not Lyttle?

    • Science - I am a subscriber at the basic level. I think the cost of my membership is good value. There are regular features and themes and interviews in addition to in-depth company analyses. It issues monthly. They also run online conferences where members get a discount and the presentations, including slides, are available for several months on the website.

      Mohnish Pabrai (Trades, Portfolio) and Guy Spier are huge MoI fans and think it the best publication of its kind. 

      I need to be selective in reading it, because I'm not a financial professional, and there's a lot of information to digest. If you're interested you could give it a try for a year. I'm sure John Mihaljevic would give you a sample copy to peruse.

    • Thanks for another interesting article, Science.

      I think Patraq makes an important point. A range of target prices, based on a range of outcomes, is critical in any analysis. A publication which does just that is Manual of Ideas, which many here will be familiar with. When MoI analyzes a company, they provide three estimates of valuation: conservative, base, and aggressive. And they provide the inputs to support each of those scenarios.

      Yogi Berra might agree that a range of outcomes is possible: "Predictions are difficult - especially about the future."
