I read Russo-Gill’s book on Peter Cundill–There is Always Something to Do– soon after it was published in 2011, but not the Routines and Orgies book on the same subject.
BeyondProxy linked to this rare footage of Cundill speaking of his investment philosophy (Value) and approach to capturing the value premium. Peter, a Canadian, found that no matter what was happening in the home market, there was usually a market in which one could find plenty of beaten up stocks. He made it his mission to spend several months each year in the country that had stocks that had been beaten up the most in the prior year. Hence, There is Always Something To Do, which can be found in the bookstore above.
Peter suffered from a neurological condition, which was diagnosed soon after he gave this lecture, and he died in 2011.
