Do the analysis and think independently

In 1965 Warren Buffett wrote in his letter to investors in the Buffett Partnership: “We derive no comfort because important people, vocal people or great numbers of people agree with us. Nor do we derive comfort if they don’t. A public opinion poll is no substitute for thought.” It is also important to understand that being contrarian does not make you a good investor. Many investors have caught “falling swords” by seeking to be contrarian when other investors are panicking. We undertake extensive analysis before making a contrarian investment call in order to avoid catching the falling sword. Our investment returns over time will depend on whether our analysis of the economics and competitive positioning of a business is correct. Benjamin Graham stated: “You are neither right nor wrong because the crowd disagrees with you. You are right because your data and reasoning are right.” click to see the Annual Investor Report.
