Munger's Daily Journal Annual Meeting Livestream
1) For more than 20 years, I've been attending the Berkshire Hathaway (BRK-B), Wesco, and Daily Journal (DJCO) meetings to hear Warren Buffett and Charlie Munger speak.

I've never once regretted making the trip. These two are so wise and unique... and I love meeting and catching up with my friends and readers.
Along with my analysts Alex Griese and Kevin DeCamp, I attended Munger's Daily Journal annual meeting in Los Angeles last February (see our notes here). But this year the meeting will be livestreamed starting at 1 p.m. Eastern time on Wednesday, February 24 on Yahoo Finance's website. Here's Julia La Roche's article about it: Yahoo Finance to stream Daily Journal annual meeting featuring Charlie Munger. Excerpt:
"We won't be able to join each other in person this year, but I hope that many shareholders will join our annual meeting online. In the meeting, Jerry [Salzman] and I, as usual, will answer many questions," Munger wrote in a letter to shareholders last month.
I encourage you to send in a question for Munger. To do so, the proxy statement states:
Shareholders should send their questions to Julia LaRoche, a journalist at Yahoo Finance, who will then submit questions to the Board. Please send questions by February 15, 2021 at 5:00 p.m. Pacific time to the following email address: [email protected]. Given time constraints, we unfortunately anticipate that not all questions will be asked and answered at the Annual Meeting.
(Julia has assured me that she will still accept questions, even though the February 15 deadline has passed.)
