His top investment results came from techniques that he began with and then refined over years and decades, learning more and more from those great companies and managements that he successfully invested in. Those are the techniques described in The Big Money.
He developed and used his techniques of looking at business models and managements as he met with small companies then going public, and larger growth companies, as well. Over the years, he met with Bill Gates when Bill brought Microsoft public, Bernie Marcus when he brought Home Depot public, Michael Dell, Dell, Phil Knight, founder of Nike, and countless more companies, spending more and more time with the managements of those companies that would become the great ones. This all became the foundation for Fred Kobrick's investment results and the instructive and interesting stories in the book.
