  • Vietnam Attracting Investment Attention [View instapost]

    I know you like the Vietnam Opportunity Fund for its discount to NAV. This being said, the track record of NAV building 2006-2012 is very modest as listed in

    Would like to hear your comments on their NAV (lack of) growth. Thanks

    Hi John,

    Always enjoy your comments. I like the Mongolian LT story and the MGG way to play it so have two concerns and would like to get your feedbak.

    1) MGG has 98 employees or 4 times what Buffett has at BRK's headquarters. Not an apples to apples comparison but this seems like A LOT of folks

    2) Book value per share is about 1,32 for the first half. About 2/3 or this is property. Assuming property is worth twice its book (and ignoring fees, taxes to sell), net asset value is about 2.2. So even at current prices, one is still paying quite a bit above net asset value, right?

    The book has mostly increased over time due to higher and higher placements. The stock still sells at 2x book.
