I very much enjoyed speaking with Shai Dardashti of MOI Global for their Best Ideas 2018 session. We discussed philanthropy, the Dakshana Foundation and the influence that Buffett had on my founding Dakshana.

My 7th Annual Talk at Boston College
I very much enjoyed my discussion with Prof. Arvind Navaratnam’s class on Value Investing at the Carroll School of Management (Boston College). It was my seventh year in a row!
The talk covers the magic of compounding, cloning Buffett, the zero fee structure and moats in the investment business.

The ‘Free Lunch’ Portfolio
I co-authored an article in Forbes about The “Free Lunch” Portfolio, which combines the power of Uber Cannibals, Shameless Cloning and Spinoffs. The Free Lunch Portfolio is a 15-stock, 12-month “set it and forget it” approach that beats the pants off the S&P 500 with lower volatility than its individual 5-stock sub-strategies.
You can view the article here:
Here are the 2018 constituents for The Free Lunch Portfolio:
Investing in The Free Lunch Portfolio is simple. Invest equally across the 15 companies. When we publish the new Uber Cannibals in April, sell the Ubers that are no longer on the new list and invest the proceeds equally across the new Uber Cannibal picks. In January, 2019, when we publish the updated Shameless Cloning and Spinoffs, sell the companies that do not make the New Year’s picks and invest the proceeds equally in the new kids on the block across the two strategies combined.
I co-wrote the article with Fahad Missmar, CFO of Dhandho Funds.
Note, anyone who invests in any strategy needs to do their own research/due diligence and are themselves fully responsible for the outcome.
