Now that Warren has control of National Indemnity

19 Oct 2015 @ 07:43
Warren has a wonderful knack for holding onto very talented and experienced people. He doesn’t mind that they are getting on in years; their knowledge, judgement and contacts are often vital to the success of the enterprise.

Warren Buffett's National Indemnity – the deal

16 Oct 2015 @ 10:28
The National Indemnity deal would probably never have happened if it wasn’t for another Omahan, Charles Heider. Charlie, who died only a two months ago (89), (leaving many tens of millions to Creighton University) was an Omaha stock broker competing with Warren in the early 1950s to persuade people to invest in shares.

Haynes Publishing – I’m considering buying some more

But I’m not thinking about selling them – quite the opposite. (I posted a fairly full analysis 11th-19th February, so I’ll mostly concentrate here on the news coming […]
