Investing Philosophy

Bruce Berkowitz concentrates his investments in a relatively small number of companies. He thinks that the more diversified the portfolio, the more likely the performance will be average. He likes companies with great managers, and deeply undervalued stocks. Benjamin Graham's "The Intelligent Investor" serves as the inspiration for Berkowitz?investment strategy. He focuses investments on companies that have exceptional management, that generate free cash, and that are cheaply priced. Berkowitz will also invest in mediocre companies that are trading at a significant discount to intrinsic value where there exists a catalyst ?an event that makes it likely the gap between market price and intrinsic value will narrow in a reasonable amount of time.

I see that you have recorded a large purchase of AIG by Bruce Berkowitz (Trades, Portfolio) for 2/17/15. Where did you get this information from? I'm trying to confirm it but having difficulty.

I would like to see a proof that berkowitz sold out of fannie and freddie (and mind you, way BEFORE the infamous lamberth-ruling). As it stands, it seems that both fairholme and pershing Square chose to not list fannie and freddie in their 13f filings anymore because they are NOTT required to do so under SEC rules. That is a huge difference though, to claiming they sold out! grurufocus may wish to comment/correct its tables?

On the homepage, it said Bruce added more SHLD, but it's not showing when I clicked to view details, is there anyway to find out how many shares he added?

Why are Freddie Mac and Fannie Mae not listed in current holdings or recent buys?
