Rank #1: 167 - Blowing Bubbles With Bitcoin And All Of His Friends

Podcast cover
Read more

This podcast focuses on two questions:

How do you buy and sell digital currencies?

Should you?

Some links mentioned:

Coinbase - How I buy Bitcoin, Ethereum, and Litecoin. Coinbase is a U.S. based exchange and very professional. I can then store them on Coinbase, send them to a paper wallet, or send them to other exchanges to buy other digital currencies.

Shapeshift.io and Changelly.com are great places for converting from one currency to another.

Bittrex is another U.S. based exchange that offers access to a large number of currencies.

I probably buy most of my digital currencies by buying Bitcoin or Ethereum on Coinbase, then transferring them to Shapeshift, Changelly, or Bittrex. I then can use them to buy other currencies.

Coinmarketcap.com is the standard for seeing coin pricing, finding coin websites, finding markets/exchanges, etc.

Myetherwallet.com is where I create my Ethereum (can also be used for ERC20 tokens built on Ethereum platform) paper wallets. Always be careful to make sure you go to the right sight as there are many phishing scams out there.

Bitcoinpaperwallet.com is where I create my Bitcoin paper wallets. Always be careful to make sure you go to the right sight as there are many phishing scams out there.

As mentioned in the podcast, I think prices (August 2017) are very inflated in the digital currency space right now and expect a major correction/crash at some point. 

I don't know when this will happen (and *could* be wrong), but I fully anticipate it will. That will mark the best time to buy. The age old wisdom of averaging in and being sober holds true.

This is all for information purposes, no investment advice.

Rank #12: 149 - How To Obtain Stable And Substantial Earnings (1967 Letter)

Podcast cover
Read more

Welcome to Episode 3 of the "Becoming Buffett" Series!

This week we discuss the 1967 letter to Berkshire Hathaway shareholders.

Buffett's annual letters book: http://amzn.to/2ogVi4U

Some brief notes:

“Our goal is to obtain a reasonably stable and substantial level of earning power commensurate with the capital employed in the business.”

  • Negative: Sales were down, sharp drop in prices, sales and profits down substantially, depressed conditions in textile markets, curtailed production 15%
  • Positive: one sector doing well due to “attempting to establish product lines away from areas of direct competition”
  • P8, para1: spending money internally for the purpose of future increased cash flows
  • P8, para4: conducted research and made tough decision to close a quality plant that had lack of demand for product
    • What are we a slave to financially? Your job?
    • What do you need to cut and stop throwing money into?
  • P8, para7: broader investment philosophy (insurance companies)
    • You can have time as an investor if you are focused on the long-term
    • This was BH’s first move toward diversification: textiles and insurance
    • This was a slow process, could you research and add one company per year to your BH?
    • As you acquire more capital, where will you allocate it?
  • P9, para2: mgmt continues to be alert to new opportunities for capital allocation
    • They were poor investors from 1956-66 (pre-Buffett), had basically no ROI on invested capital for 10 year period
    • Can you relate to that?
    • Acknowledged the reality and are learning from it.
    • Keeping liquid money in stocks as they wait for the right capital allocation/investment opportunity
    • Will not hesitate to borrow money to take advantage of attractive opportunities

Rank #15: 152 Chris Rawley - Investing In Farmland To Beat The S&P

Podcast cover
Read more

Interview with Chris Rawley

Not a farmer

Did not grow up in the ag world

Military - Navy

Went to work in real estate

First alt investing was real estate

Worked in different industries

Few years ago became enamored in ag as asset class

Ag is an asset class that is taken for granted

Crowdfunding act of 2012 for investors

  • Pooling small $ together to buy larger assets
  • Allowed retail crowdfunding for non-accredited investors

A number of real estate funds focusing on apt buildings, etc

Created “harvest returns” about a year ago

Put money in private placements of ag

Have investors w existing land and make the opportunity available for investors

Focused on the production side (crops, land, etc)

HR focused on accredited investors

Non-accredited by end of the year

Reasons to invest in ag

  • World population
    • Urbanization - arable land is shrinking
    • Wealthy populations shift from plant protein to animal protein, more ag devoted to protein
  • Returns
    • Farmland has outpaced S&P, reits, gold, since 1970
    • The underlying land
    • Price of crops has increased
    • Operations of the land
  • Tangible
    • Like real estate
    • Real land
    • Returns positively correlated to inflation

Common investment for large institutions

Very challenging to access these investments

There are some farmland and timberland REITs

  • Problem: correlated with greater stock market

There are some funds but have really high minimums ($250K)

Liquidity is a double-edged sword

Allowing on the marketplace:

  • Confidence in management team
  • Location, trends
  • Expected returns

Regulatory environment

  • Act of 2012
  • SEC published rules for
  • Big learning curve regarding regulation

How will you validate yourself to a skeptical market?

  • Why is ag a good investment?
  • Why crowdsourcing a safe/good idea?
  • Learning curve on the farmer side

Looking for people raising $500K-$2M

Sale/leaseback deals

Provide creative financing opportunities

How much of portfolio? ~5-15%

    • “This purchase, while small, has the potential for future expansion.”
      • Is there a local, private company you could buy an interest in (or buy outright)?
      • Let’s stretch our thinking in regard to the options available to us as investors
  • Management of insurance and publishing companies continued under existing leadership after acquisition
    • Quality mgmt is a big deal to Buffett
    • Is it for you?

  • Should have stayed focused on fundamentals and not let fear and sentiment influence too much.
