COMMENT
Buy US stocks on a Canadian exchange?

No. If you purchase on a Canadian exchange, you're really just neutralizing the currency fluctuation of holding a US security.

His position is that holding US securities in USD is a benefit, as he wants exposure to the US dollar. He doesn't want to limit himself to an economy that represents 3% of the world's wealth. He encourages diversification at every level, including currency.

WAIT
BRK.A vs. BRK.B

Main difference is the price. The As are a really high price, and the Bs are in the $300s. They're largely economically equivalent. The B shares were created in 1996 so that small investors could buy the stock without being taken advantage of by firms charging management fees for ETFs holding BRK.A. If you had a massive amount of money, like institutional investors, you'd be indifferent. Most people prefer the B shares. 

A great defensive holding. Very durable over the long term. Has had a pretty strong runup, so the valuation is more robust that it's been. People have fled to safety because of the banking crisis in the US. Insurance, especially, is counter-cyclical. You want to wait.

STRONG BUY

Warren Buffett just released his annual shareholder letter--essential reading on Wall Street. The S&P was down 18% last year, but Berkshire was up 4%. Annual compound gains since 1965: 9.9% S&P vs. 19.8% Berkshire. He has always recommend Berkshire stock, because they make long-term bets on the underlying business. The business, not the stock is what Buffett invests in. Berkshire is the top shareholder of 8 S&P stocks, like Chevron, Amex and Coke. Lessons: diversification, long-term thinking and compounding.

DON'T BUY

Kingpin of quality and investing. Interestingly, he also owns its top 3 holdings: AAPL, BAC, and CVX. Good quality companies with ability to sustain earnings over the long term. 30x earnings, not a great buy. Cherry-pick companies instead.

PAST TOP PICK
(A Top Pick Mar 14/22, Down 5%) Will continue to hold. Excellent company with legendary management. Investors miss importance of insurance business that is hugely profitable. Catalyst for renewal rates in insurance will provide uplift for stock.
insurance
BUY
Warren Buffet is in a class by himself. A total buy.
insurance
BUY
It's a diversified stock, holding many companies, like Apple and airlines. She prefers owning the individual holdings, but if you're long term it's hard to time when to buy this. They are good managers, have capital and buy good companies at the right time. If you hold this for 5-10 years you will be fine.
insurance
DON'T BUY
Lots of respect for what they've done, but you can own the underlying pieces for cheaper, as he does. 27-28x earnings, a premium multiple. He wouldn't give you a strong argument against buying it, if you find it easier. No dividend.

COMMENT
80 days ago, Berkshire made an all-time high, but yesterday they made a 52-week low. Only twice has this high-to-low happened: 1987 and 2020 Covid flash crash. We haven't seen the worst for megatech like Apple and Microsoft.
insurance
DON'T BUY
They will go through a leadership transition eventually, because of the age of Warren Buffett. They hold a diversified portfolio, but she'd rather pick and choose individual stocks.
insurance
TOP PICK
Believes company is the ultimate value stock. Value stocks starting to do well again vs. growth stocks. All of the companies it owns are good bets against inflation. Thinks the company will continue to do well. Balance sheet has a ton of cash.
insurance
COMMENT
Massive company that owns and operates other companies. Not getting discount other conglomerate's getting. Sitting on a large stash of cash. Core insurance business not attractive. Running out of large acquisition opportunities.
insurance
DON'T BUY
Sell Visa to buy Berkshire? Why do that? Interesting to see what Visa does in the meta economy to come. Real-economy demand will be strong. Likes Visa and its peers. When Berkshire's heads Buffett and Munger pass away, the BRK premium will shrink.
insurance
BUY
He's a big fan of Warren Buffett's philosophy. During this pandemic, Buffett hasn't done any buying, just waiting it out and watching for the long-term impacts of this pandemic. This company is in a pretty good position, well-run and diversified and sitting on a pile of cash. BRK has lagged the markets, so now is a buying opportunity.
insurance
DON'T BUY
They have such a storied history in the market and have done very well long term. Short-term they haven't performed as well though. They've gotten so large that they can invest in only the biggest stocks. Recently, they dumped all their airline shares. The bloom is off the rose. He'd avoid them for the next while, though he admires them.
