    Great episode as always!

    On an unrelated note, can someone please tell me what the name of the paper is that calculated that you would have gotten around a 20% return annually if you had followed Warren Buffett for a certain period of time (buying and selling on the last day of the month the quarterly results became public, and at the lowest price that day). Very interested in this paper. Phil, my hero, has talked about it a few times in the podcast, but I can’t remember which episodes.

    Of course, I tried to Google it, but without any luck.
