I have been asked by a self-taught value investor Rishi Sondhi to give a short presentation/talk on investing.
Where: Chelmsford Public Library, Chlemsford, Massachusetts
When: December 13, 2007 at 7 pm
I've never been to Chelmsford, Massachusetts, but I've been told it's a short drive from Boston.
This is a free event open to the public.
I imagine my time will be about one hour. I am of the impression that one of the most valuable ways to give a talk is if I do very little talking and let the attendees ask questions. That way, they get the most out of their time.
My plan is to spend about 15-20 minutes discussing six attributes/characteristics/qualities that seem to be common threads amongst the most successful money managers - Buffett, Miller, Pabrai.
I will follow with a brief case study of a past investment that provides a good example to the business-like approach to investing.
Then I will answer questions for the remainder of time.
Feel free to stop by if you are in the area at the time!
