Regarding the origins of this portfolio in 2009, Charlie Munger said the following during Daily Journal’s (DJCO) 2018 AGM Q&A: “In addition to Daily Journal's businesses, we have a great bundle of securities and want to dispel again that this is not some minor version of Berkshire. We have a bundle, because we bought them at a time when we preferred to own them to holding cash and had a lot of extra liquidity on hand that came to us by accident. The chances of more gains like what we have done in the last four or five years is zero. Oh, well we will have a big gain next quarter, because of a deferred tax reduction from the Trump tax code change, so we will look like a genius for one more quarter, I suppose.” The cost-basis of the positions acquired at the time was $63.4M.

Charlie Munger’s Daily Journal portfolio value decreased from $213M to $175M this quarter. Since their first 13F filing in Q4 2013, there have only been two changes to the holdings: POSCO was reduced significantly in Q4 2014, and a large position was initiated in Alibaba Group Holdings in Q4 2020. After accounting for those two changes, the portfolio has remained remarkably steady over the last nine years.

Regarding the origins of this portfolio in 2009, Charlie Munger said the following during Daily Journal’s (DJCO) 2018 AGM Q&A: “In addition to Daily Journal's businesses, we have a great bundle of securities and want to dispel again that this is not some minor version of Berkshire. We have a bundle, because we bought them at a time when we preferred to own them to holding cash and had a lot of extra liquidity on hand that came to us by accident. The chances of more gains like what we have done in the last four or five years is zero. Oh, well we will have a big gain next quarter, because of a deferred tax reduction from the Trump tax code change, so we will look like a genius for one more quarter, I suppose.” The cost-basis of the positions acquired at the time was $63.4M.
