Facebook Is Undervalued

Posted on

As I mentioned in a note to my investors earlier this week, the spirit of the Holiday shopping season has been extended to certain parts of the stock market, with a number of bargains to be found. In terms of interesting ideas to be excited about, my watchlist is beginning to rival the ever-growing wish list that my kids have diligently been preparing for Santa. I wrote a letter to Saber Capital investors this week with some thoughts on Facebook, […]

China Thoughts and the Circle of Competence

Posted on

I had a great week in China with Jake Rosser and Connor Leonard, two good friends and fellow investors. We spent our time visiting a few companies, talking with employees and business owners, and just observing some day to day life in Beijing and Shanghai. I have spent a significant amount of time over the past few years reading and learning about China, and it was very helpful to apply the learnings with some real world on-the-ground observations. I have […]

Saber Capital Discussion with Googlers

Posted on

In late January, I had the great experience of visiting Google in Mountain View, California, where I had the chance to do meet with some Google employees to discuss investing (here are the slides from the talk). The timing was fortunate, as it was my good friend Saurabh Madaan’s last week as a Googler. In addition to his post as a senior data scientist at Google, the value investing community knows him for his side gig: hosting the Investing Talks […]

One of the World’s Widest Moats

Posted on

A year ago today, I wrote a short post on a company called Tencent Holdings (TCEHY), a dominant internet company in China and its ubiquitous crown jewel of an app platform called WeChat. I began studying that company for a few months, and last fall I bought some shares for the first time, adding some more shares in December. The stock has risen this year, but still offers significant value in my opinion, and I plan to hold my shares […]

The Most Important Moat

Posted on

I recently wrote an investor note on some thoughts I have on customer value, and why I think it’s important when analyzing businesses. I thought I’d share that letter here: Saber Capital Investor Note: “Most Important Moat” (6/13/2017) In the note, I outline why I think that when you’re evaluating the durability of a company’s moat, it’s critically important to consider the value of a company’s product from the customer’s perspective. It’s a concept I’ve been thinking about for the last […]

Berkshire Meeting Notes – Daily Improvement, Business Evolution, and Investment Strategy

Posted on

Last week I headed to Omaha to attend Berkshire Hathaway’s annual meeting. Nowadays, there is less of a reason to attend the meeting in person because it is available to watch online, but I love attending the event for all of the peripheral meetings that occur. It was a great weekend, and I got to connect with a few Saber Capital clients, as well as some good friends that I don’t see very often. No matter how long you’ve been […]
