📖 Read along with the podcast:

So, back in 1995, Harvard University invited Charlie Munger to give a lecture to its students. Now, one might assume that Munger, being the Vice Chairman of Berkshire Hathaway and a highly respected figure in investing, would impart valuable insights on how to excel in the world of finance. But interestingly enough, Munger had a different approach. He focused on something far more important than investing advice – he delved into the realm of mental flaws that affect every single business decision we make.

See, our brains are fascinating organs that constantly take shortcuts when it comes to decision-making. It’s just the way we’re wired. But here’s the kicker – these shortcuts often lead us astray, tricking us into believing that our flawed thinking is actually accurate. So, what Munger recognized was that avoiding these mental flaws was the key to his success in building Berkshire Hathaway.

In Munger’s most famous lecture, he emphasized the significance of being able to see and, importantly, avoid these mental flaws. He believed that it was more critical than any specific investing advice he could give. So, what were these mental flaws that Munger warned his Harvard students about? Let’s dive into the ten most critical ones.

The first flaw is the overreaction to loss. We have a tendency to overemphasize loss rather than focusing on potential gains. Munger advised his students not to miss out on a big opportunity just because they wanted to avoid a small loss.

The second flaw is inconsistency-avoidance. When we hold a belief, we tend to identify with it strongly. As a result, any information that clashes with our beliefs appears twisted or distorted. Munger urged his students to see information for what it truly is, without letting their preexisting beliefs cloud their judgment.

Next up is availability-misweighing. Munger pointed out that the simplest answers to complex situations often become viral and widely accepted. However, just because others provide a single explanation for why something happens, it doesn’t mean that the whole picture has been revealed. Munger encouraged his students to assume that they could be missing important information whenever they are presented with only one response.

The fourth mental flaw is what Munger called the “twaddle tendency.” People have a knack for making things up as they go along, especially when they want to appear more intelligent than they actually are. Munger advised his students to be skeptical and assume that some percentage of any given explanation is simply fabricated.

Then there’s the social-proof bias. As humans, we often tend to follow the crowd and assume that popular ideas must be true. But Munger cautioned against this tendency, reminding his students that popularity doesn’t equate to accuracy. It’s important to think critically and not blindly follow the masses.

Moving on to the sixth flaw, Munger highlighted the overoptimism tendency. We humans have a tendency to be overly optimistic, which can cloud our judgment and make it difficult for us to accurately assess risks. Munger advised his students to seek a third-party perspective to evaluate the downside risks of their decisions.

The seventh mental flaw is what Munger termed the “reward and punishment superresponse.” Essentially, we underestimate the impact that incentives have on driving behavior. Before working with others, it’s crucial to understand their incentives and motivations.

Next up is the pain-avoiding psychological denial. When faced with an uncomfortable truth, we often skew our perception of reality to avoid the pain that accompanies it. While this may protect our ego in the short term, it ultimately hampers our decision-making process. Munger encouraged his students to confront uncomfortable truths head-on and base decisions on accurate information.

Influence-from-association is another mental flaw Munger highlighted. Essentially, when we associate an idea with something negative, we automatically assume that the idea itself is bad. Munger advised his students to look for valuable lessons even in ideas that others tend to avoid due to negative associations.

Lastly, there’s the lollapalooza tendency. When multiple mental flaws come into play together, they can amplify each other and lead to extreme outcomes. Munger urged his students to be vigilant for situations where multiple flaws might be at work, as they can significantly impact the logic behind decisions.

Now, here’s the thing – most people are not fully aware of just how much these mental flaws skew their decision-making processes. But Munger, with his exceptional ability to recognize and confront these flaws, was able to build Berkshire Hathaway into a powerhouse. So, the key takeaway here is to protect against these mental flaws in your own decision-making. By doing so, you can elevate yourself to the level of a top-notch decision-maker, just like Munger.

And with that, we’ve covered the ten critical mental flaws that Charlie Munger warned his Harvard students about. These flaws have the potential to significantly impact our decision-making, so it’s essential to be aware of them and actively work to counteract their influence.

Remember, decision-making is a multifaceted process, and understanding the common pitfalls can help us make better choices in both our personal and professional lives. So, take Munger’s wisdom to heart, and may your decision-making skills soar to new heights!

  • How $CRSP Theraputics Gene Editing Is a Possible Mega-Multi Bagger
    by /u/Capable-Raccoon-6371 (wallstreetbets) on March 3, 2024 at 2:56 am

    Good evening regards, Hope your weekend isn't too boring while the casino is closed. My wife has been spending a lot of time with her boyfriend, and I need to get rich to grab her attention again. Here's how I plan to do that with CRSP. Let me know your thoughts, and let's discuss. ​ CRSPR Theraputics Chart Since IPO ​ ​ Why $CRSP In Summary CRSPR Theraputics is miles ahead of every other gene-editing company, it's not even funny. Further strengthened by their partnership with Vertex Pharmaceuticals $VRTX the next 10 years of this company is going to be an absolute wrecking-ball on biotech. Recently approved cure for Sickle Cell Disease and Beta Thalassemia with $1.02T revenue opportunity. Strong, long lasting partnership and funding support from $VRTX. Tiny 6.72B market cap, with 15x bagger potential. 2.29B cash on hand and 0 debt with 4.3 years at current burn rate of 131.62M. Realistic chance at approval for therapies / cures in cancer, diabetes, and cardiovascular disease. Significantly less risky to hold now that they have an existing product. ​ CRSP 6.72B Market Cap. 3/2/2024 ​ ​ The Case For Sickle Cell Disease CTX001 Casgevy is approved in United States, Europe, Great Britain, Bahrain, and Saudi Arabia... with Switzerland and Canada submissions in the first half of 2024. Let's do some math on disease prevalence in approved areas. United States ~85,000 [a1] European Union ~116,000 (2.6 / 10,000 population of 448M) [a2] Bahrain ~29,000 [a3] Saudi Arabia ~934,000 (2.6% population affected of 35.95M) [a4] Together this is 1.16M total people within the current radius of approval. Not taking into account those under the age of 12 this is an addressable market of $2.56T at $2.2M per treatment. $VTRX will take 60% of revenue as a part of partnership giving $CRSP a potential revenue of $1.02T. Bluebird also has an approved therapy, Lyfgenia. Although with a black-box warning for blood cancer and a 3.1 million price tag. Patients and payers would never choose this over Casgevy in my opinion. Leave your thoughts on this. ​ ​ The Case For Beta Thalassemia CTX001 Casgevy is also approved for Beta Thalassemia in the same regions as Sickle Cell Disease above. Let's do some math on this as well. The only statistics I've found is "The incidence of symptomatic cases is estimated to be approximately 1 in 100,000 individuals in the general population" [b1]. Taking 0.001% of total approved area population of 884.643M people we have ~8846 total people within the current radius of approval. Again, not taking into account those under 12, this is an addressable market of 19.46B. With $VRTX taking 60% of the revenue CRSP has a 7.78B existing opportunity treating Beta Thalassemia. Not massive, but will still pad earnings reports. ​ CTX001 Casgevy has an existing revenue opportunity of $1.03T in only currently approved areas. This will expand. Furthermore, this treatment switches the fetal hemoglobin gene meaning an existing patient can still pass the defective Sickle Cell Trait / Beta Thal gene to their children. This only cures the patient, and does not decrease offspring risk of disease. Despite it being a one-and-done cure, there's still an inflow of new patients as time goes on. ​ ​ The Existing Pipeline CRSPR Theraputics is taking on 3 of the major killers, cancer, diabetes, and cardiovascular disease [c1]. Existing clinical trials of these can be found on the clinical trials tracking website [c2] with Phase 1 studies estimated completion for 2027. The most interesting for me is CTX310 currently being dosed in patients with hypercholesterolemia or hypertriglyceridemia at Phase 1 clinical trials. Showing a 90% reduction in ANGPTL3 production, and in-vivo on target edit of >90% [c3]. This solution can effectively wipe out dyslipidemias in humans that cause plaque build up leading to heart attack and stroke. Unfortunately, most of this pipeline is 3-5 years out before we'd be close to seeing pharmaceutical approvals. Although the target demographic for these is in the hundreds of millions, if not billions of people. ​ ​ Institutional Investments Let's talk about the elephant in the room... Cathie Woods owns 10.6% of this company, she may be highly regarded but padding both ARKK and ARKG with a 600M position doesn't seem like an advertisement to sell to ETF investors. In fact, 80% of all existing shares are held by institutions. Just recently a $280M direct offering at $71.50 were privately sold diluting investors by 5% with no effect on the market price [d1]. ​ CRSP Institutional Ownership Top 10 Institutional Holders of CRSP ​ ​ Placing My Bet Full disclosure, I own 400 shares of $CRSP worth $33,680 at an average price of $65.87. I've been buying since September, but it's been on my radar since 2020. Pulled the trigger, and drinking the kool-aid. Looking forward to cashing out a millionaire. ​ My CRSP Holdings For Disclosure ​ Please let me know your thoughts, I'm doing this DD to open discussion about CRSP and gene editing as a whole. I love you. ​ Sources [a1] [a2] [a3] [a4] [b1] [c1] [c2] [c3] [d1] submitted by /u/Capable-Raccoon-6371 [link] [comments]

  • AMD calls 📞🚀🌕 let’s go!
    by /u/Xmatic81 (wallstreetbets) on March 2, 2024 at 9:37 pm

    I anticipate AMD will skyrocket 🚀 after the next earnings report next month. I took a position today and I am hoping to increase it next week. Dell earnings and news were promising and propelled NVIDIA and AMD to new all-time highs. Unless we see a supply change disruption these chipmakers will continue to soar. If NVIDIA can’t continue to get those chips fast enough guess who all the big AI companies are turning to for their chips. Nvidia is the big shark in the ocean, but AMD’s market share is increasing rapidly by the billions. So at even 5% of the market share of what AMD is projected to earn with AI that’s a big reason to wake this sleeping giant. I’ve been in this stock long and I wouldn’t be shocked if we see it skyrocketing over $250 per share next earnings. Nvidia has CUDA which is what most programmers want, but AMD chips can also work on CUDA unfortunately they cut the project short. I can also see INTEL producing chips designed by AMD and manufacturing them as well. Who else is in on this and sees the potential? I’ve already doubled my money on NVIDIA. submitted by /u/Xmatic81 [link] [comments]

  • Did the Market Miss the Big Picture on SNOW?
    by /u/putinsfavoritebear (wallstreetbets) on March 2, 2024 at 7:45 pm

    Fellow regards, SNOW took a nosedive after beating earnings, and I'm beginning to think this might be a contrarian buying opportunity. The Dip – Why Did It Happen? Weaker-than-expected revenue guidance Surprise announcement of CEO Frank Slootman's retirement Broader correction in richly valued tech stocks The Bullish Case for SNOW Customer Base: SNOW continues to expand its roster of Fortune 500 clients like MasterCard, Captial One, AT&T, Pfizer, and more. Net Revenue Retention Rate (NRR) Excellence: Snowflake's NRR exceeding 160% showcases exceptional customer loyalty and their ability to expand spending within their existing user base. Robust Forward Demand: Product remaining income (RPO) growth in excess of 100% signals a strong pipeline of committed future revenue, bolstering confidence in sustained growth. Profitability Within Reach: Steadily improving operating margins point to a clear path towards profitability – a key milestone for long-term investors. Cloud Data Warehousing Dominance: Snowflake isn't just a player in the expanding cloud data warehousing market; it's a driving force shaping the industry's competitive landscape. Incoming CEO: Sridhar Ramaswamy Google Veteran: Ramaswamy's extensive experience leading Google's advertising business underscores his expertise in large-scale data management and monetization. AI Focus: His background could signal a push for integrating advanced AI and machine learning capabilities into Snowflake's platform. Technical Analysis SNOW recently found support near its 50-day moving average, a potentially bullish sign. Oversold RSI (Relative Strength Index) suggests momentum may be shifting in favor of the bulls. My Strategy – Calls 3/8 $207.5 & 3/15 $202.5 It's riskier, but if they bounce back from this dip, the upside will be significant. Your thoughts? Is SNOW's sell-off an overreaction, or are there deeper headwinds? How does the CEO change factor into your long-term thesis? Any chart patterns or indicators that support (or counter) the bullish case? TLDR: SNOW's post-earnings drop looks like an overreaction. Customer growth, strong metrics, and incoming Google exec hint at upside. I'm playing the rebound with call options but managing risk. Your thoughts? Disclaimer: This is my analysis, not investment advice. DYOR! submitted by /u/putinsfavoritebear [link] [comments]
