Books By Bud Labitan
This book examines each of the basic steps Buffett and Munger use in "framing and making" an investment decision. It is a focused look into an amazing invention within "Behavioral Finance." In the authors opinion, the genius of Buffett and Munger's four filters process was to "capture all the important stakeholders" in a four cluster process. Imagine...Products, Enduring Customers, Managers, and Margin-of-Safety... all in one mixed "qualitative + quantitative" formula.
This may be the best business book that describes the competitive advantages of profitable businesses. MOATS describes the competitive nature of 70 selected businesses purchased by Buffett and Munger for Berkshire Hathaway Inc. MOATS is a very useful resource for investors, managers, students of business. Since its subject matter has proven success, MOATS may soon become a useful text in businesses schools around the world. MOATS also looks at the sustainability of these competitive advantages.

1988 Valuation of Coca-Cola May 1, 2013
For years, we have wondered how Warren Buffett valued Coca-Cola, (Ko), stock at such a deep bargain in 1988. This book describes a simple two stage discounted cash flow model that delivers a close approximation. This exercise is our quantitative estimation of Coca Cola's Intrinsic Value Per Share in 1988. First, we describe our 2-stage "discounted cash flow" valuation model. Since intrinsic value is a highly subjective figure, readers can adjust their model to the quality of the business they wish to value. KO is now at $41/share... Want to read about a historical valuation that now yields an 85% per year return to Berkshire Hathaway? ( capital appreciation + dividends / purchase-adjusted-price of $3.25 ) That is the secret of compounding in a high quality business like Coca-Cola. The idea is to look at KO as a bond and apply the basic math of "Yield On Cost" or "Yield per share_cost."
