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...

Samsung Galaxy S5 Plus – Another Star In The Smartphone Galaxy
The dust raised by the ongoing smartphone war did not yet get a chance to settle and another new contestant has made its debut but rather a hush-hush entry. The coming of this phone did not grab much media attention unlike the other big launches in the last couple of months. This new star just got unveiled subtly without much trumpet blowing. But this is unlikely of the makers of this new smartphone. More...

This Railroad Company Can Deliver Strong Long-Term Growth
Norfolk Southern (NSC) reported excellent financial results for the second quarter 2014, driven by strong growth across all of its business segments and effective cost control measures. Its earnings for the second quarter rose about 23% as the company benefitted from robust growth in the automotive and industrial shipments. The company particularly saw higher shipments for metal and construction, chemicals and agricultural products. Also, its performance was fueled by an elevated boost in its coal segment that registered a 7% increase in its overall shipment after a frigid winter season. More...

Coke's Earnings Disappoints The Street  - Coke's Earnings Disappoints The Street
The beverage giant, Coca-Cola (KO), posted its third quarter earnings on Tuesday, and soon after, its share price fell as the results were dramatically below the Street consensus. The management has come up with a cost-cutting plan of action to restore the declining sales, especially in the U.S. where buyers are not purchasing soft drinks for health reasons. Let’s have a sneak peek into the quarter earnings and have a brief look at the upcoming strategies to keep its market share safe against rivals like PepsiCo (PEP), which posted a much better quarter.

David Winters Fund Third Quarter Commentary
Asian Market Sell-Off Offers Long-Term Opportunities Further signs of an economic slowdown in China’s economy sent the markets lower during the third quarter, with the late-September demonstrations in Hong Kong adding to the unsettled conditions. Real estate prices declined, factory output slowed, and consumers put the brakes on spending. While the speed of the economic slowdown occurred at a faster pace than many had predicted, the Chinese government’s efforts at “taking away the punch bowl” before a bubble could form (and burst) have been wellscripted. Chinese banks have been reducing liquidity and cutting back on new loans for some time now. We believe these measures are a rational and appropriate response to an economy that was growing at an unsustainably fast pace. The trillion-dollar question is whether China can manage to head off a bubble without stalling the economy. More...

IBM: From Best to Good  - IBM: From Best To Good
A while ago, I wrote an article about IBM (IBM), which you can find here. In that article, I laid out a simple case for IBM if you have a 5-year+ investing horizon. Since then, we have seen another lackluster quarter, which had the effect of chopping off the price of “the Big Blue” by a good amount. As one of Warren Buffett’s largest holdings, IBM has certainly attracted a lot of attention, especially with the recent price drop. In this article, I want to briefly touch on the point that IBM has gone from the very best business to a good business since Buffett’s initial purchase during the first quarter of 2011. More...

Daniel Loeb Comments on Sony Corp
In May of 2013, Third Point announced a significant stake in Sony (SNE) and suggested to the company’s CEO, Kazuo Hirai, that he should seriously consider spinning out 15‐20% of the company’s undervalued, American-based Entertainment business. At the time, we explained that partially listing the Entertainment segment would have three positive effects: 1) highlighting its profitability; 2) increasing investor transparency, thereby allowing the market to properly benchmark the company against its global media peers; and 3) incentivizing Entertainment’s management to run the company more efficiently by engaging in cost cutting and laying out clear earnings targets.

Daniel Loeb Comments on Alibaba Group Holding Ltd
In our Quarterly Letter two and a half years ago, we argued “the Case for Alibaba.” At the time, Alibaba (BABA) held a leading market position that it was just beginning to monetize (the company had less than $75 million in LTM earnings). Today, the Company has continued its exponential growth, demonstrated significant margin leverage, and is expected to earn over $5 billion this fiscal year. Our enthusiasm for the Alibaba story has underpinned multiple investments at Third Point and now that the company is public, we have established a significant direct investment in Alibaba shares.

Daniel Loeb Comments on eBay
We established a significant position in eBay (EBAY) during the Third Quarter. While eBay’s challenges were well‐mapped – including multiple years of minimal value growth, a weak execution track record, and high employee turnover – we sensed it had arrived at a critical inflection point and gained new focus. A meeting with CEO John Donahoe this summer left us impressed by his process‐driven approach to optimizing the business. More...
