Buy, Sell or Hold? There is nothing wrong with making money, and taking some money off the table is never a horrible idea. In the case of this company however, it is probably premature. What is going on with interest rates is very positive for the insurance business, which is their core business. Also, this has been benefiting from a big run up in equities. He is positive on the company.

He is trying to look for a bit of value in the market. There is no doubt that an IBM, Wells Fargo, American Express are value names, and who owns about 70% of the portfolios, Kraft-Heinz, Wells Fargo, IDM, Coca-Cola and American Express. Given its strong balance sheet, it is massive cash flow positive on a regular basis, trading at 1.3 to 5X Book. A great valuation play in a pretty frumpy market.

(A Top Pick Sept 3/15. Up 13.77%.) Had a chance to buy this at a very low price to BV, and thought it was a great opportunity. Earnings are kind of under pressure this year because of its railway division, but that is cyclical and it is still generating gobs of cash.

(Market Call Minute.) The insurance business will ultimately drive this, and it is hard for him to get excited about the insurance side of the business right now.

This has done very well, not so much recently with its market investments, but it’s private investments. He worries because of Mr. Buffett’s age, and wouldn’t put too much money into it.

You only pay to get in and out, compared to paying management fees yearly for mutual funds. They have built a wonderful company that has longevity. Also, have delegated a lot of authority to their next generation of management. It gives you a broad cross-section of companies. Reasonably valued. You should buy this with the intention of owning it for a while.

Everybody talks about this, but very few people own it. Warren Buffett says the time to buy a stock is when it is trading at about 1.2X BV. Thinks this is trading at 1.3X today. This is a company that keeps adding inexorably to its earnings.

If you are going to invest in this, you have to believe the American economy is going to do well over time, because this has made a big bet on the US economy. He would never bet against the stock. Trading at 1.2X BV. Until there is better sentiment in some of the holdings and an improvement in the US economy and industrial economy, the stock is going to be stuck here.

This is the ultimate buy and hold company. There is nothing wrong with the company, but it is a conglomerate. It is extremely well diversified. They are good stewards of capital.

He always wanted to own it and took advantage of the pullback. It is not trading at too high a multiple. This is the most attractive buy-in opportunity he has had.

In his opinion, this has fallen to the lowest price book level since the financial crisis. They continue to grow their BV. Once the Kraft-Heintz deal closes, that is going to add earnings power. He likes the safety and security of owning good quality companies within their holdings. Also, has a giant equity portfolio. He could easily envision this stock getting back to the $150-$160 level.
