In by EquityMatesLeave a Comment

There were two big celebrations of investing over the weekend. In the Southern Hemisphere – the Equity Mates 100 Episode Party. In the Northern Hemisphere – Berkshire Hathaway’s 2019 Annual Meeting.


The Berkshire Annual Meeting (also known as Woodstock for Capitalists) is a celebration of all things Warren Buffett, the 88 year old stock market genius, and his offsider, 95 year old Charlie Munger.


One highlight of the weekend is Warren and Charlie’s Q&A. This year they sat on stage and answered questions for almost 7 hours. We’ve listed to the full 7 hours so you don’t have to, and pulled out some of our favourite questions.
