Prior to beginning work on this assignment, read Chapters 5 and 6 in the Dhandho Investor text.
Value investor Mohnish Pabrai (2007) wrote the Dhandho Investor: The Low-Risk Value Method to High Returns. Pabrai sums up the Dhandho approach as heads, I win; tails, I don’t lose much! Basically, with investing you are right 60% of the time, while having to bear a calculated risk in approximately 40% of the instances.
You have begun reading Pabrai’s book. He states that “the lower the price you pay relative to the probable intrinsic value of the business, the higher your returns will likely be if you’re right and the lower your losses will likely be if you’re wrong” (Pabrai, 2007, p. 2).
