Investor Jim Rogers Tells Fox Business Agriculture Is “Going to Be One of the Great Industries of Our Time”
Chairman and CEO of Rogers Holdings Jim Rogers spoke with FOX Business Network (FBN) about the United States deficit and the path the nation and individuals need to take in order to prosper. Rogers said that the U.S. economy will not recover until we “accept reality, stop spending money we don’t have, go down to a lower level, and start over.” He went on to say that particularly in such an uncertain economy, “you should invest in only what you know, otherwise keep your money in cash.” Excerpts from the interview are below: Read more...

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...

MS Global Franchise Fund Comments on Admiral Group PLC
The team became more wary of Admiral (LSE:ADM) after the 2011 turbulence in the stock price, after a scare about the potential for large personal injury claims. While the 2011 claims ratio eventually turned out to be fine, it caused a revision in our view of the quality of the name. The combination of the stock’s recovery, and long-term concerns about the effect of autonomous driving on the motor insurance industry, caused us to reduce and then exit the position. More...

MS Global Franchise Fund Comments on Publicis Groupe SA
Publicis (XPAR:PUB) is one of the world’s leading global advertising services companies. We believe it is the most forward thinking of the large advertising players in the way it has positioned itself for the digital age. Unlike peers, the company balance sheet is run with low financial leverage and the return on investment in acquisitions is closely monitored. This focus on unlevered returns is likely to be because of the strong influence of Chairman Elizabeth Badinter, owner and daughter of the founder. Whilst it is a little cyclical, the high focus on return on operating capital, together with its leading strategic positioning, make this business attractive, as is the valuation, with the company trading on a free cash flow yield of over 8%.

Can Sirius XM Improve Its Performance in the Long Run?

The company’s performance was quite impressive as it posted good numbers but at the same time Sirius failed to meet expectations on other key points.

Analyzing Why InvenSense is Overvalued

Invensense missed the consensus estimates on earnings by an enormous margin and re-examined its direction on earnings descending. Thus, imparts fell 14% overnight. Be that as it may, from that point forward, InvenSense has bobbed back and has been on a stellar run, and this is precisely why I think investors ought to consider selling it ... for now. More...

Emerging Markets Guru Mark Mobius - Touring the Investment Climate in the Czech Republic
My team and I have been touring Central and Eastern Europe this summer, and our travels recently took us to the Czech Republic. It’s a country with an interesting history, and from our perspective, it also holds a variety of interesting potential investment opportunities, too. It’s filled with lots of visitors from all over the world – I recognized both Korean and Mandarin being spoken on the streets in the beautiful city of Prague, and in our hotel there was a group of Japanese tourists. Clearly, they traveled a long way to get there! Prague is an attractive destination not only because of its history but also its collection of beautiful buildings and interesting architecture, an important draw for travelers. There are all kinds of architectural styles including Medieval, Art Deco, Beaux Arts, Baroque, Victorian and extreme Modern (like the Dancing House by Frank Gehry). The Vltava River running through the city is a focal point, and the famous Charles Bridge decorated with baroque statues of saints is a great place to view the Hradčany Castle on the mountain overlooking the city.

Can We Get Much Higher?
Stocks continue to climb higher and higher after the short dip about a month ago. That dip was not in the slightest sense a correction, so we still haven't experienced a correction in this ever-increasing market. The market is overpriced and overvalued, and as it continues to rise, more and more people are entering the market out of fear that they will miss out on the gains. Artificially low interest rates and a very short list of alternatives for growth almost force people to buy into this overvalued market. Prices could increase, and the bubble could grow even bigger, but that doesn't justify paying the prices the market is currently offering. Unfortunately, saving until the market corrects will not combat inflation and no one knows how long the bubble will last. Value investors should proceed with absolute caution and search for other means of finding value than the stock market until prices are more favorable. More...

Ahead of the Fed
Federal Reserve Chairwoman Janet Yellen is set to deliver a speech on Friday at the Jackson Hole forum for global central bankers. These central bankers will decide when they will raise the official interest rate. Yellen has been advocating to keep interest rates low and believes that the U.S. economy still needs support in the form of low interest rates. Her stance also seems to indicate that, if interest rates do rise, they will be raised at a very slow and lengthy pace. We all know interest rates have to rise; it is simply a matter of when. A drastic change in rates would shock the U.S. economy and its recovery, which explains Yellen's resistance towards raising the official interest rate. We can't have our cake and eat it, too; as interest rates continue to be kept artificially low, rising inflation is the unfortunate side effect. If interest rates rise to combat inflation, the economy may need another "stimulus," which would only increase our national debt and raise inflation, anyway. Keep interest rates artificially low, and investors must take more risks in order to combat the wealth deteriorating effects of inflation. As assets continue to become more overpriced and overvalued, More...

Broadcom Is a Buy After This Move
Shares of Broadcom (BRCM) have been controlling higher following the time when the organization reported that it would strip itself of its cellular baseband program. One worry that keeps on looming over the organization is extensive danger to its low-end integration business. Then again, on the off chance that we work through the math here, it's really clear that Broadcom is making the "right" exchange off here. More...

Warren Buffett Comments on USG
OMAHA, NE—“As has been reported today, Berkshire Hathaway Inc. (BRK.A)(BRK.B) consented to a Final Judgment whereby we agreed to pay a civil penalty of $896,000 for failure to comply with the premerger reporting and waiting requirements of the Hart-Scott Rodino Act. We made a mistake when we overlooked the filing requirement. Berkshire had owned convertible notes of USG (USG) since 2008 and was effectively forced to convert the notes when they were called for redemption by USG in December 2013. This event triggered a filing requirement for Berkshire and we were late in realizing that fact.” More...
