    One thought on “Inside the Investments of Warren Buffett: Twenty Cases”

    1. Soooooo many typos. Regarding the content, I don't have issues with the ratios or valuation techniques--it is a view of the world--but I wish the book in general was more technical. There are numerous hints Buffett gives of his valuation/analysis techniques, and it should be clearer how the author's ratios/analysis techniques apply to Buffett's process, or how they are "Buffett-esque." There probably should have been a chapter or two (or three) establishing this methodology.

    2. I would not really reccomend it to prospective readers for the following reasons:1) The analyses seem to be written from someone who is not an investment pratictioner. They are often high level and not properly structured2) The book is written in the most boring way possible, and has plenty of typos which indicate the book was written in a rushThe limited benefits of the books are to expose the reader to some of Warren Buffett investments, to at least have a vague idea of what they are about.Ove [...]

    3. Some of the analysis are doubtful. But, i like the conclusion the author made after analyzing Buffett's decision. He mentioned that Buffett normally invest in company where he had information advantage. For example, Wells Fargo's annual report provided Buffett complete information to make an intelligent investment. He also realized that Buffett, in the early days, is willing to change his investment style (eg: merger arbritrage) to adapt to the market condition.

    4. An exceptional book. The author has done a unique exercise which analyses Buffetts main investments over the years and brings a different level of clarity. A lot to learn from following the analysis laid out in the book.

    5. Useful contribution to the study of Warren Buffett's investment prowess. The author tries to assess each investment based on the publicly available information at the time. Near term price (valuation) often seemed to be much less of an issue than other qualitative factors.

    6. This book takes twenty of Warren Buffet's investments and analyses their business models, circumstances in which investments were made, balance sheets, and Buffet's rationale behind those.This is the kind book a finance student or an investor would like to add to their collection and keep visiting the case studies time to time.

    7. A simple idea: take twenty of Warren Buffett’s past investments and expose them to deep, extensive analysis. Apart from being a fascinating retrospective, it may also give a few inklings about what makes Buffett tick and how the “Sage of Omaha” manages to hit gold with so many investment decisions. This is no rose-tinted spectacle hagiography but a fairly neutral, informative and detailed examination, which has had access to partnership letters, company documents and lots of other original [...]

    8. What does the book offer that is any different from the rest of books and articles about Buffett? The "book focuses on what an investment analyst working at the time would have seen when considering the companies Buffett invested in",ie, the author analyzes each case without the benefit of hindsight.He also shows that some cases weren't as obvious or cheap nor easy as everybody always says, and that Buffett combined different strategies along with a Growth focus.These are the 20 cases:1958: Sanb [...]

    9. Lu looks at each investment in great detail and establishes the broader context in which each investment was made. He meticulously details the history of each company, its past performance, its situation at the time Warren Buffet chose to invest in the company and the result. Inside the Investments of Warren Buffet is an excellent resource to students of finance, specifically those who are interested in the field of investments and portfolio management. For other readers, the technical details a [...]

    10. All things considered, this was likely more for the writer's clarity of thought than as strongly for the reader's enrichment. Great for the writer, not so much so for the reader. (Kind of like if you were to meet an all-time great investor and amazingly, he could pick your brains of much of your knowledge while you perhaps are only somewhat wiser for the experience of the meeting.)Among the amusing typos was the chapter on IBM where he wrote their capital return (dividends and share repurchases) [...]
