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...

Tweedy Browne Fund Q4 2014 Commentary
Global and international equity market indices (in local currency) moved higher in the 4th quarter despite increasing equity market volatility caused in part by the continued rapid decline in oil prices.

John Keeley Alternative Value Fund Q4 2014 Commentary
In the fourth calendar quarter of 2014, the KEELEY Alternative Value Fund (KALVX) fell 2.71 percent compared to a 6.09 percent increase for the Russell 2500 Value Index and a 4.93 percent rise in the S&P 500 Index. For the year ending December 31st, 2014 the Fund declined 8.15 percent compared to a 13.69 percent increase by the S&P 500 Index and a 7.11 percent rise by the Russell 2500 Value Index. Although equities rebounded from a challenging third quarter, a number of the issues that facilitated much of the recent volatility continue to exist. The volatility in the price of oil garnered the majority of the attention here in the U.S. although growing concerns about the efcacy of global growth deepened toward the end of the year. Global deationary pressures have become the heart of these concerns and although the European Central Bank (ECB) has communicated their desire to consider Quantitative Easing (QE), it is difficult to project its effectiveness given the structural reforms needed at a local level. Despite the strong bounce in equities during the quarter, and especially in small caps which lagged for much of the year, broadly speaking, investors continued to rotate More...

Troubled Japanese Carrier Skymark Airlines Chooses Boeing Amidst Conflict with Airbus  - Troubled Japanese Carrier Skymark Airlines Chooses Boeing Amidst Conflict With Airbus
While everyone is busy speaking of increasing carrier profits due to plunging oil prices, Japan’s third largest airline, Skymark Airlines (TYO: 9204), filed for bankruptcy because of rising losses and poor liquidity on the back of a weakening yen and differences with Airbus (EADSY). The airline believes its ill fate was caused by the failed deal with the European jet maker for 6 A380 superjumbo jets.

The major decision that the carrier has taken for the restructuring is to maintain a Boeing (BA) only fleet. Here’s a low down on what happened. More...
