Free Resources to Learn From Charlie Munger

Charlie Munger is someone that most people in the world have never heard of, but the American billionaire investor is worth knowing! He is Warren Buffett’s partner and right hand, and the duo is the most successful investors with decades of 20% return per year. Buffett as on several occasions attributed his huge success to Munger. 

In the beginning of Warren Buffett’s career Buffett invested in any stock that was for sale cheaper than the value of the company. For example, the value of the company (buildings, machines, inventory etc.) could be worth $100 per share, but the stock was trading at $50 per share because of some crisis. Munger introduced Buffett to the concept of looking at quality in a business and paying a little bit more per share of stock – instead of buying businesses in trouble for dirt cheap. 

After this mindset change Buffett has said: “It's Far Better to Buy a Wonderful Company at a Fair Price, than a Fair Company at a Wonderful Price.

And that quote is the essence of Charlie Munger’s investing strategy. Munger recently mentioned that he in his life has struggled with people (like me) perceiving him as a guru. However, he has now come to terms with that and I’m happy for him because he is worth modelling. Learn more from Munger here:

Daily Journal Annual Shareholder Meeting

Charlie Munger is chairman of the Daily Journal, a publishing and tech corporation in Los Angeles and usually does a live Q&A for several hours to answer questions about the company and his opinions about a range of different topics like crypto, inflation and the 2021 phenomenon "the great resignation". Munger doesn’t hold back on sharing opinions and some of them are controversial and goes against the trend of time. But it comes from almost 100 years of life experience and though some of his viewpoints will trigger some people, it’s worth listening to the essence of what he is communicating. 

“We’ve had enough good sense when something is working very well to keep doing it. I’d say we’re demonstrating what might be called the fundamental algorithm of life — repeat what works.”
