CHARLIE MUNGER 00:22
Berkshire is what?
AUDIENCE MEMBER 00:24
Berkshire is too restrained on buying more Apple stock.
CHARLIE MUNGER 00:29
Its own stock you mean?
AUDIENCE MEMBER 00:31
CHARLIE MUNGER 00:32
Apple, oh Apple, oh.
AUDIENCE MEMBER 00:33
Yeah, do you still believe so? And do you have any more comments, new comments on Apple?
CHARLIE MUNGER 00:39
No I don’t. I don’t think the world would be improved by more comments from me on Apple. (Laughter) You know, I’m a very opinionated man and I know a lot, but I don’t know everything. I like Apple but I don’t have the feeling that I’m the big expert.

Good morning, Mr.Munger. My name is JC. I am 11 years old and I come from China. My question is also about –
CHARLIE MUNGER 01:10
You're truly welcome here.
AUDIENCE MEMBER 01:13
My question is also about Apple. So last year you said that you wish you had more of Apple stock, but now its price has declined by a lot, so what is your opinion about its moat or the competitive advantage. Why do you think it has declined? Thank you very much.
CHARLIE MUNGER 01:34
Well I don’t know why Apple stock is going up or down. I know enough about it so I admire the place, but I don’t know enough to have any big opinion about why it’s going up and down recently. Part of our secret is that we don’t attempt to know a lot of things. I have a pile on my desk that solves most of my problems, it’s called the ‘too hard’ pile. And I just keep shifting things to ‘too hard’ pile. And every once in a while an easy decision comes along and I make it. That’s my system. Everything was the ‘too hard’ pile, except for a few easy decisions which I make, promptly.
