    Hi,

    I used to read your post. I am the general partner of GJ Invetstment Funds, generated 40% compounded annual return from 2008, audited... I am the author of "Creating Portfolio like Warren Buffett" published by John Wiley. I like to mention in your blog....

    ·        Determine where to search for stock prospects
    ·        Thoroughly research stocks using a stock research checklist
    ·        Confidently make buy and sell decisions
    ·        Expertly manage your portfolio
    Packed with specific stock examples, real-life calculations, and expert tips, Creating a Portfolio like Warren Buffett is your guide to harnessing the market savvy of an investing legend.


    From the Inside Flap
    Through timely, intelligent investing, Warren Buffett has accrued a net worth of approximately $45 billion, making him the perfect role model for budding investors. However, his incredible success and the epic scope of his acquisitions can make him an intimidating mentor. But just because most investors can't afford to buy companies like GEICO and See's Candies outright doesn't mean that you can't apply—and benefit from—the same rules and strategies that Buffett has successfully employed for decades.

    In Creating a Portfolio Like Warren Buffett: A High Return Investment Strategy, investment expert and Buffett disciple Jeeva Ramaswamy breaks down the rules of stock trading that made Buffett a multibillionaire so that you, too, can apply his winning ways to building your own wealth. Highlighting actual trades that Buffett successfully executed, as well as Ramaswamy's own experiences investing using principles established by Buffett, the book clearly explains everything you need to know to make intelligent investments, including when and how to exit a trade.
    Packed with eighteen Stock Research Checklists that help you assess stocks from all angles—from dividends to management and from inventory to debt—this book has everything you need to make smart, informed decisions you can have confidence in. While you might think that you understand the cardinal rule of investing, "buy low and sell high," most investors find themselves forced to do the exact opposite. The key to success is gathering as much information as possible about the companies you are interested in, and having the patience to only buy when their value is down.

    Ramaswamy has studied, distilled, and practiced the teachings of Warren Buffett for years with excellent results, and with this book in hand, you have everything you need to capitalize on the market savvy of one of the greatest investors of all time.

    CV what are your thoughts on Altus Group Limited, 16% yield, down 71% ytd, by my estimation 50% short term upside and the yield is safe

    Hey CV, do you know anything about Galleon Energy (TSX:GO)?
  • energywonk 2010-10-07 14:43
    hey canadian. well where to start? i have read lots on wang chuanfu, i can debunk rumours that buffett will buy more of the company, BYD just took a 18% stake in one of chinas biggest lithium miners, lots of latest news, partnerships, MOUs etc. business fundamentals (they are incredibly strong--i am very bullish on this stock over the long term) how this was out of context for warren (he doesnt buy tech) this purchase was driven by david sokol and charlie munger,  i can talk about price behaviour and the generally overvalued price probably due to the buffett halo effect, but i expect volatility in short to medium term, which is obviously opportunity for value investors. there are probably good opportunities for CAD and AUD investors like ourselves as our currencies get caught up in the currency war. i suppose if you write a draft of what you want included i am happy to edit and add additional stuff. let me know.
