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...

Chipotle Shares Are Getting Very Hot  - Chipotle Shares Are Getting Very Hot
Shares of Mexican food chain Chipotle Mexican Grill (CMG) have seen choppy trading so far in 2015, and in the process developed an increasingly concerning technical pattern. Active investors and traders have a well-defined level of support to watch — and if CMG stock slips below it, that could open up a lot of downside. It has been one heck of a ride for investors in Chipotle Mexican Grill over the past half-decade, as the company not only became a major player in the fast-casual segment of restaurants, but arguably defined the entire group.

Many investors in Brazil, including us, have been a little frustrated over the past couple of years with its lack of growth and progress.

Day#2 Why Dividend Growth Investing?
Following up on my series of 6 Days to Dividend Growth Investing, I continue today with Day#2: Why choose dividend growth investing? Once you know why you invest, the next step is to build a solid investing strategy. Many investors think all is required is money and the ability to read a few financial newsletters to trade.

Mobile Payment System – The Next Big Thing In Ecommerce And Online Payment Mode
Ecommerce and online payments are two major pillars of online transaction. The technology has been rapidly growing and is driven by mobile devices. Promoting these convenient services over the internet in various forms had become a routine that grabs the customers’ attention, and they end up buying things or services that may not be of any use to them. The process has become so simplified that people end up buying things online quite frequently. And each time they make a transaction, there is a service fee charged at the payment gateway. This is expected to be a billion-dollar business. Mobile payments are expected to grow significantly from $52 billion to $142 billion by 2019. Everyone is in the rat race of grabbing an opportunity to make big dollars. More...
