  • Mental Model Application - Simplicity

    In my previous article, I highlighted a few points from Alice Schroeder's speech at UVA about Warren Buffett (Trades, Portfolio). One of the points was how Buffett always identifies the one or two factors that will make a business succeed or fail. This ties back to the simplicity mental model that I mentioned in my Charlie Munger (Trades, Portfolio)'s mental models article. Simplicity is enormously important but it's missing in almost all the investment write-ups that I have ever read. In this article, I'd like to share with the readers my thoughts on the subject of simplification and the application of this mental model in the investment process.

    "Everything should be made as simple as possible, but not simpler." Such are the wise words from Albert Einstein. The message is clear and powerful. Yet it is rarely adequatly applied in our daily lives. Understandably and ironically, in the world of investing, the word "simple" is often misconstrued as unrealible and inferior. Just take look at all those strategies the hedge fund industry utilitzes. There are macro, quant, event-driven, credit, absolute value, low volitility and etc. The selling point to investors is often the high degree of sophistication of the system being deployed, as opposed to the risk-adjusted performance information.   

  • GlaxoSmithKline Finally Received Approval From FDA For Its Diabetes Drug Tanzeum (Albiglutide)

    GlaxoSmithKline (GSK), the renowned research-based pharmaceutical and healthcare firm, has finally received the green signal in the US for marketing its once-weekly diabetes drug Tanzeum which the company expects to launch in third quarter 2014.

    On April 15, FDA approved GSK’s new drug Tanzeum. The drug is a subcutaneous injection that is used to treat Type-2 diabetes. It can be injected once a week when paired with a strict diet regiment and exercise in order to reduce blood glucose levels.


  • Google Offers Value for Money

    Google (GOOG) has continued its good run from the last year. The tech-giant has been trading down more than 4% in early trading on Thursday. The company has had a history of missing as well as beating the expected earnings estimates.

    If we look at the company’s performance in the last thirteen quarters, we’d find astounding results. The company, for the record, has surpassed expectations 5 times in the past. On the other hand the company has disappointed on 4 times while just met it on other 4 occasions.

  • A Double-Digit Yield Isn’t Everything

    Linn Energy (LINE) has faced several analyst downgrades following the release of its quarterly results and annual guidance. The company is eying more than 30% growth in 2014, but in terms of production-per-unit, its output will decline. Moreover, the company has also targeted a tight distribution coverage ratio of 1.00x.

    As a result, the units of Linn Energy, and its affiliate LinnCo (LNCO) have struggled; both have fallen by more than 10% since the day of the earnings release. However, an asset deal related to its Midland acreage could result in an upside. Moreover, the company, which is one of the largest upstream master limited partnerships in terms of enterprise value, gives a juicy double-digit yield.


  • Will Amazon Be Able to Repeat History?

    The consumer electronics market has developed a lot in the past few years and players such as Apple (AAPL), Google (GOOG) and Samsung (SSNLF) have grown as manufacturers. These players have been at the forefront of all the major and minor changes and have changed the game according to their competencies. It can be said that these players define the space. In such a situation it’s very difficult for a new player to enter and conquer the market and this brings us to the online shopping giant Amazon (AMZN).

    After creating ripples in the tablet market, Amazon now confirmed its plans to make its presence felt in the smartphone space – a move that many have been expecting for quite some time now. When the company had introduced its first Kindle tablet at an unexpectedly low price, many of the bigger players of the industry were taken aback and later most of them started following Amazon’s footsteps. The question is, will Amazon be able to repeat history?


  • Ford’s Plan to Launch Lincoln Looks Very Promising

    Ford Motor (F) said on Thursday that it plans to pitch its luxury Lincoln brand in China, the world’s hottest car market. The second largest U.S. automaker would introduce the car late this year and give its dealership to eight firms across seven cities. As part of its bigger plan, the company proposes to offer five Lincoln models in the Mainland by 2016.

    The First Step


  • Google Finds More Ways to Surprise Us

    Google (GOOG) seems to be on a roll with plans to bring about huge changes in the way it functions. Recently it announced its working on a smartphone prototype called Project Ara, a modular device, and now the news of Google acquiring drone maker Titan Aerospace has flooded the market.

    Titan Aerospace is a solar-powered unmanned robot maker that makes planes with 50-meter wingspan that can fly at 65,000 feet and work as atmospheric satellite. These machines have the capability of transmitting voice and data services while flying continuously for up to five years, drawing power from the sun’s rays (reminds me of Superman!) through the solar panels on its wings.


  • Toyota’s Redesigned 2015 Camry Is No More Boring

    Toyota (TM) Camry, the top-selling North American model in the midsize sedan segment, is going for a complete overhaul. The car was last given a facelift in 2011. The 2015 version of the car was revealed at the New York Auto Show. It showed how much the automaker has worked towards its designing --bringing about a remarkable praiseworthy upgrade.

    The Japanese company, although the global lead automaker, has been criticized on several occasion of offering boring and conservative cars. The carmaker ultimately realized that it’s high time to modify this image. It could hurt the company’s sales volume in the long run as competition is intensifying.


  • A Few Reasons Why Finish Line Is a Good Buy

    The holiday season is an exciting period for retailers as people are tempted to open their wallets and fill those retailers' coffers. In fact, this period is exciting for investors too as they watch their companies prosper. This was seen when shoe retailer Finish Line (FINL) posted its third-quarter results recently. Its numbers were ahead of analysts' estimates and sent shares higher.

    Reasons to smile


  • Cal-Maine Foods Is a Good Buy

    One of the most popular breakfast items in the U.S. is eggs. A large number of people in the U.S. prefer eggs as an important dietary supplement. This has led to an increase in the per capita consumption of eggs from 247.7 in 2011 to 248.7 in 2012. Additionally, it is expected to rise to 250.7 for 2013 . Therefore, producers and marketers of eggs have been enjoying this trend.

    Cal-Maine Foods (CALM) is the largest producer of shell eggs in the United States. It has been largely benefiting from the increase in egg demand, as reflected by its second-quarter results. Its recently-reported quarter was better than analysts' expectations, making investors optimistic about its future.


  • 3 Footwear Retailers to Take Your Portfolio Higher

    Consumer confidence in the U.S. rose to 78.1 in December from 72 in the previous month. This is surely good news for retailers that have been suffering because of lower consumer demand as shoppers try to save every penny in their pockets. Hence, a prudent investor should be well prepared to invest in the right company, one that will maximize returns as the industry players prosper.

    In the footwear-retail industry, players such as Nike (NKE), Wolverine World Wide (WWW), and Crocs (CROX) are quite interesting. These companies have been doing really well as evidenced by their quarterly results and stock-price performances. However, it is important to choose the best one among these, which will maximize investors' gains.


  • 3 Aftermarket Retailers to Consider

    U.S. automakers enjoyed total sales of 15.6 million vehicles last year. However, both the December and annual numbers didn't meet expectations. Sales in December moved up by a meager 0.3% over last year, as the colder weather led to fewer purchases. This is also because most people are still willing to get their existing vehicles repaired rather than buy a new one, which creates great opportunities for aftermarket retailers.

    In fact, auto-parts retailers benefit from colder weather because it leads to more wear and tear of auto parts, which brings in more customers. As indicated by NPD Group, there are opportunities in the aftermarket-retail space in 2014, which in turn should be advantageous for investors. However, picking the best from the whole lot in order to maximize gains is very important.


  • The Takeaways from PepsiCo’s Earnings

    The beverage giant PepsiCo (PEP) came out with its first quarter 2014 earnings thrashing profit expectations. PepsiCo, which runs banners of savory snacks like Fritolay, Tropicana and Dorito chips, earns its revenue from both the snack as well as beverage sector. The company saw a boom in its snack sales. Even its not-so-happening North American soda business reported better-than-expected numbers, which sent the shares zooming over 2%. But before getting into the quarter takeaways, a brief look into some essential figures is required.

    The Number Talk


  • This Tech Stock Holds Great Potential

    Storage solutions provider SanDisk Corp (SNDK) made a fantastic start to its fiscal 2014. The company posted stellar first-quarter results riding on the solid state drive (SSD) powertrain. Numbers were decently above Street’s expectations and the year-ago period. Second quarter revenue as well as gross margin outlook was also better-than-expected. All these positives took SanDisk shares 5.79% higher in the after-hours on the day of earnings release and currently they are hovering around 52-week high price. So, what were the key drivers for the quarter and what more can SanDisk offer? Scroll down to unleash.

  • Longleaf Partners Comments on DirecTV

    During the quarter we exited DIRECTV (DTV), a highly successful core holding in our U.S. and Global accounts for over a decade. We discuss our DTV experience not to showcase one winner, but because the investment illustrates the process and approach we follow for holdings across all mandates and highlights some of Southeastern's unique research strengths.

    History of DTV Investment (based on Longleaf Partners Fund) Sometimes we can own a company in indirect ways that create part of the discount to intrinsic worth. In the case of DTV, we owned the underlying business via three different stocks over our thirteen-year holding period as shown on the chart that follows. Initially, in 2001 we bought GMH, the tracking stock that General Motors created for the Hughes division that included all of its satellite businesses. By early 2004, the company had been spun fully out of GM and renamed DIRECTV Group. Over the following four years, we opportunistically added to and trimmed our position.
