Walter Schloss: The Essence of Value Investing
Here are some notes taken from the life of Walter Schloss, once an office roommate of Warren Buffett. He is still alive and kicking at 95, and is one of the investors who inspires me the most. He had several points in common with Philip Fisher and Philip Carret, some of his contemporary investing legends; they lived very long; invested since very young until late in life; and never looked for extreme fortune or fame. He also led a simple life and, until recent interviews, still invests his personal money. His life incarnates the essential substance of value investing. Read more...

Looking Beyond Maxim's Weak Results
Maxim Integrated (MXIM) ended fiscal 2014 on a soft note. The company released mixed results for the recently reported fourth quarter. Although Maxim posted an improvement of 6% in the revenue, its results led to a decline in the share price. Investors had been expecting a better performance from the company. The softness in the performance was on the back of poor chip sales for mobile devices. Another reason behind the downfall was the cautious outlook for the future. However, management still is expecting better results on the back of some strategic moves that it is undertaking. Let us have a look at the underlying business. More...

Does Oracle Look Promising After The Earnings Call?  - Does Oracle Look Promising After The Earnings Call?
When the database leader Oracle Corp. (ORCL) reported its first-quarter numbers of fiscal year 2015, it did raise several eyebrows as the results were dim enough to worry investors.

Market Strategist John Mauldin – Where Is The Growth?  - Market Strategist John Mauldin – Where Is The Growth?
In 1633 Galileo Galilei, then an old man, was tried and convicted by the Catholic Church of the heresy of believing that the earth revolved around the sun. He recanted and was forced into house arrest for the rest of his life, until his death in 1642. Yet “The moment he [Galileo] was set at liberty, he looked up to the sky and down to the ground, and, stamping with his foot, in a contemplative mood, said, Eppur si muove, that is, still it moves, meaning the earth” (Giuseppe Baretti in his book the The Italian Library, written in 1757).
