#111 – Mohnish Pabrai Investing Framework – Dhandho Investor


Mohnish Pabrai is one of my favourite super investors. We have done a few videos on Mohnish Pabrai and in this video we want to cover his most famous investing framework called the Dhandho Investor which is based on his book Dhandho Investor.

If you want to be a successful investor, you should be able to watch paint dry on a wall, said Mohnish Pabrai in one of his interviews. We found this intriguing. Today, when most “investors” are buying meme stocks and betting on cryptocurrency, this guy was asking to be patient.

  1. Focus on buying an existing business
  2. Buy simple businesses in industries with an ultra-slow rate of change
  3. Buy distressed businesses in distressed industries
  4. Buy businesses with a durable competitive advantage – The Moat
  5. Bet heavily when the odds are overwhelmingly in your favour
  6. Focus on arbitrage
  7. Buy businesses at big discounts to their underlying intrinsic value
  8. Look for low-risk, high-uncertainty business
  9. It’s better to be a copycat than an innovator
