Do what Pabrai says, but not always what he does
I like Pabrai. A lot of what he says makes sense. I have to say though that I was shocked at some of his investments in 2008 such as Compucredit and Delta Financial. Not because they were bad investments, but because he was making them at the same time that he was promoting the concept of "heads I win, tails I don't lose much". Both of these were clearly companies that could have the rug pulled out from under them as they relied on other people for funding. Read more...

If I Ran a Value Investing Business School Warren Buffett,Mohnish Pabrai - If I Ran A Value Investing Business School
“If I ran a business school there would be only 2 courses. How to value a business and how to think about markets. No modern portfolio theory, no beta, etc. You don’t have to be right on 4,000 or 400 businesses - not even 40. Circle of competence. Start with a small circle and slowly expand. Don’t spend time on companies that don’t lend themselves to valuation. Accounting is useful, but sometimes it is not meaningful. Durability of competitive advantage is the key. And market fluctuations. The market is there to serve you - not instruct you.” More...

Mohnish mentioned that he is buying an insurance company in his latest presentation. Any idea which one might he be interested in?
