Munger & Me

  • Berkshire's Charlie Munger has also been critical of Dr. Jeremy Siegel's investment thesis.

A bunch of subscribers have suggested that I am a hater because I am critical of Dr. Siegel's investment thesis.

That is fine, as anyone is entitled to his/her view. And though I might strongly disagree with the assertion that I am making an ad hominem attack on the professor, I strongly believe in everyone's right to express their opinions.

That said, I am critically analyzing his investment thesis; I am not attacking him personally.

It should be noted that I am not alone in my criticism; I have very good company.

In a Q&A session at the 2006 Berkshire Hathaway (BRK.A/BRK.B) annual meeting, Charlie Munger, Berkshire's vice chairman, was asked about Dr. Siegel's theories.

Munger said, "I think Jeremy Siegel is demented."

Buffett, clearly embarrassed, added "Well, he's a very nice guy."

Munger continued, "He may well be a very nice guy, but he's comparing apples to elephants in trying to make accurate projections about the future."

So, is Munger a hater, too?

Position: None




The Earnings Cliff Lies Ahead

  • With inflation running low, sales and profits will be challenged.
As evidenced by a flattening yield curve, a lower absolute yield on the 10-year U.S. note and an apparent rollover in credit risk, one of the major macroeconomic themes of the last week to 10 days is that expectations for domestic economic growth are likely to be reduced.

It remains my view that the 2013 real GDP in the U.S. will be (at best) +1.5% -- the CBO has just issued a forecast of +1.4%. That said, there are accumulating downside risks to economic growth in the form of the fiscal drag of policy and the ├╝ber expansionary monetary policy of delivering zero interest rates (which is not likely to exist beyond year-end).
