It has been more than half a decade since the 2nd Edition of Masters of the Market by Hughes, Wilson and Kidman was published. I have only just begun reading the book.
I was wondering if anybody who has read the book could reflect upon the accuracy of certain predictions made by the 'masters' and how their subsequent investments have fared.
For example, Peter Guy (one of the 'masters') made a significant investment in ABC Learning when it floated. At the time of the book's publication, Guy still held his shares in ABC Learning. Although he may well have pulled out of it by then, the same company fell into receivership in November 2008. Given he was a Buffett and Graham advocate (both investors who like concentrated investments and who prefer holding shares for extremely long periods of time), if Guy had kept his shares in ABC, he would have made significant losses.
