    Thanks for the mention. I don’t miss my days of reading investment newsletters and poring over financial statement footnotes. Good luck to those still fighting that battle.

    @Michael, is 100% of your portfolio indexed?

  4. Michael James on December 7, 2012 at 11:34 am

    @FT: No. My portfolio is only 91% indexed with 9% in Berkshire Hathaway. But I don’t really study Berkshire’s financials. It’s so diverse that I consider it to be similar to a fund.

    Thanks very much for the mention! Always great to be part of the MDJ reading list.

    Regarding Michael’s comment, I would state that some Canadian companies don’t need to be followed very often. Most Canadian banks, pipelines and telcos don’t need to be tracked very often, although they do need monitoring.

    I’m with him on the indexed comment, indexing needs very little attention and Berkshire is the same, because it is so diversified. I think it would be very tough to sell that stock, if ever.

    Have a great weekend FT!
