One thought on “Thornton O’Glove Talks at Google (incl. Slide Deck)

  1. Thank you for sharing this! Very insightful video. I found the third part very interesting regarding his prediction for Berkshire Hathaway. I’ve read “The Outsiders” which covers Henry Singleton as a genius capital allocator, and it was interesting to see hear his words that Warren doesn’t entirely practice what he preaches. Perhaps for now, over the next few decades the returns to shareholders generated from continuing to buy up undervalued companies is greater than selling or spinning off subsidiaries and investments.
