In his Q3 letter, Pabrai writes that these returns are not a result of great ideas he’s had over the past few quarters, but the result of years of diligently hunting for value. The primary driver of recent returns he writes is the “voting machine on its way to becoming a weighing machine.” He goes on to say, “The single most important skill for an investor is patience. Extreme patience. We are beginning to reap the rewards of both your patience and mine.”
