    Tom I still need to figure out how to use gurufocus's personal space better. I noted your message and thanks for the nice words. I've only had 4 years experiences in value investing so I can guarantee you that you are much more experienced than I am. Maybe we can agree that learning is mutual. Best of wishes at Dorfman!Looking forward to more of your articles.

    Hi Tom - I'm about to take a break from writing, with a temporary, full-time job for probably the next six to 12 months. As I withdraw for now, I wanted to let you know your encouraging comments and feedback have been appreciated very much. And your articles have been thought-provoking, including the recent one about moving into cash; it synchs with my own interest in downside protection tactics, with everything from simple stops to option collars. Anyway, keep up the good work; I'll keep readin ...

    • Thanks for posting his Grahamites. We are perpetually on the lookout for compounding machines. The most important part of this interview was the question asking about "sticking it out with Markel for 20 years". To us that's the ultimate take away whenever compounding comes up. While it seems so self explanatory you need time AND extraordinary companies to make a compounding machine. Who here on this board has had the ability to invest in a company for 20 years? My guess is it's a pretty small n. Thanks again for posting. Best - Tom

    • Nelson: I hadn't thought of writing one specific to the industry but I will take a crack at it this week. Thanks so much for your comment. It is much appreciated, Grahamites: Thank you so much for your comment. I wish it was that easy. I just didn't outline all the errors and outright disasters that made a stomach churning counterpoint to this article. Thanks again to both of you for your comments. Best. - Tom

    • Hi Nolan. Thanks so much for your comment. The creep to quality has worked for me, but there is certainly more than one way to skin a cat (to keep with the Twain theme!). There are many great investors out there who act far differently than my methodology and are doing quite well. Thanks again for your comment. Best - Tom
