Which buffett you prefer? A Canadian Or The American One?

It is Sunday so enjoy a little bit relaxing post on investment ideas.

Canadians have their own buffett - he is called Prem Watsa and runs Fairfax Financial Holdings. Americans have Warren Buffett and Berkshire Hathaway.

It is quite interesting to look at the long-term price performance of Fairfax and Berkshire:

The chart evidences that since 2002 Fairfax delivered higher return than Berkshire Hathaway. However, since middle 2011 Berkshire took the lead.

Now it looks like the situation may change. Since middle 2013 both companies have been delivering similar returns so, if historical patterns repeat, Fairfax should return to its over performance against Berkshire soon..
