The Four Filters Invention of Warren Buffett and Charlie Munger examines each of the steps they perform in framing and making investment decisions. The author believes that Buffett and Munger expanded the field of "behavioral finance" by using this thoughtful and effective process. The genius of Buffett and Munger's four-filters process was to capture all the important stakeholders in their decision making.
"Below Audible standards"
This book offers five sample intrinsic value per share business valuation estimations that were first performed in 2010. Done in a style that Warren Buffett and Charlie Munger may use, these valuations are based on free cash flows each business produced. In each case presented, the author, Bud Labitan, simulated an approach that Buffett and Munger might take to valuing a business, based on what they have written and talked about. However, all of the growth assumptions used are Labitan's own.
This may be the best business book that describes the competitive advantages of profitable businesses. Moats describes the nature of 70 selected businesses purchased by Buffett and Munger for Berkshire Hathaway Inc. Moats is a very useful resource for investors, managers, and students of business. Since its subject matter has proven success, Moats may become a useful practical text in businesses schools around the world.
