  • Analyzing One of Seth Klarman’s Best Quotes

    I was reading Margin of Safety and ran into one of the most shocking quotes I have read in value investing. I have wrote about Seth Klarman (Trades, Portfolio) before, and I always highlight his raw comments that are both intelligent and concise. This is the complete quote:


    “Unsuccesful investors are dominated by emotion. Rather than responding coolly and rationally to market fluctuations, they respond emotionally with greed and fear. We all know people who act responsibly and deliberately most of the time but go beserk when investing money. It may take them many months, even years, of hard work and disciplined saving to accumulate the money but only a few minutes to invest it. The same people would read several consumer publications and visit numerous stores before purchasing a stereo or a camera yet spend little or no time investigating the stock the just heard about from a friend. Rationality that is applied to the purchase of electronic and photographic equipment is absent when it comes to investing.”

      


  • A Glance At Two New Holdings in Mario Gabelli's Portfolio

    So far in 2015, guru Mario Gabelli (Trades, Portfolio) hasn’t been inclined to purchase shares of companies that are new to his portfolio. He has added to several existing holdings and reduced others, but there have been only two new purchases – Courier Corp (CRRC) and Vitesse Semiconductor Corp (VTSS) – in the last three and a half months.


    Gabelli’s initial investment in Courier, a Massachusetts-based book manufacturing and publishing company that specializes in education, religion and trade publications, came March 19, when Gabelli bought 375,200 shares for an average price of $24.15 per share. A couple of weeks later, he added 152,000 shares to his stake for an average price of $24.48 per share, then he added 153,000 shares to his portfolio two days after that for an average price of $24.77 per share.

      


  • Auto Sales Key in Forecasting S&P Performance

    The central trends in stock markets have been relatively clear, with most of the major benchmarks posting consistent gains. But in order for us to accurately determine whether or not these trends can continue, we must understand which economic trends are likely to support these markets from a fundamental perspective. The prospect of higher interest rates could make it more difficult for consumers to make large purchases on credit. For these reasons, traders and investors will continue to monitor activity in both the automobile sector and in real estate.


    Of these two, the automobile space could be the leading indicator, as any changes here will likely carry over into the housing market as well. Those trading individual stocks will want to continue the potential implications for selections like Ford (F) and General Motors (GM). But the reality is that the trends that are seen in this space will be key in understanding later moves in the broader indices as well. “Baseline activity in automobile sales has been largely positive for nearly all months of this year,” said Mike Thompson, automobile industry analyst at the Car Insurance Calculator. “Our industry data suggests that this type of activity will likely continue in the the third and fourth quarters, as well.” As long as this is the case, we can expect strong activity in both the SPDR S&P 500 Trust ETF (SPY) and the Powershares NASDAQ 100 ETF (QQQ). Here, we look at the latest technical developments in the broad regional stock measures: SPY and QQQ.

      


  • Fannie And Freddie: Flirting With Re-Privatization

    For the last few year's there has been a quest by top value investors like Bill Ackman (Trades, Portfolio) and Bruce Berkowitz (Trades, Portfolio) to get the government to give all of the profits Fannie Mae (FNMA) and Freddie Mac (FMCC) back to the shareholders. A Whaton real estate professer has written a paper on Fannie and Freddie laying out that it may look like nothing is happening with the two firms, but a lot is happening. She did an interview with the Knowledge @ Whaton where she discussed Fannie and Freddie in detail.

  • AT&T Priced For Attractive Total Return

    AT&T (T) is a $170 billion telecommunications behemoth with a history dating back to the invention of the telephone. The stock currently yields ~5.7%, with a large portion of the expected investment return coming from the dividend in lieu of EPS growth. EPS growth has been a paltry 1% annually over the past five years. Before the recession, AT&T was making $2.76 per share, and now only makes a little over $2.50 per share. Does AT&T make sense as an investment today?

  • Can Cummins Continue Doing Well After Its Fourth-Quarter Results?

    Cummins (CMI) reported strong numbers for the fourth quarter that topped the street expectations. However, investors frowned over the weak outlook for 2015, which mainly relies on sales performance in China and North America. Starting with its numbers, we will consider all the factors that will drive its shares in the future. Historical charts show that Cummins had been growing steadily for the past many years, and the company has strong fundamentals to carry the same in the days ahead.


    Its revenue for the quarter rose 11% to $5.09 billion (YOY), while earnings increased to $2.44 a share compared to $2.32 last year. The numbers were driven by strong performance in North America and China, offsetting the weakness in Brazil and Europe. But due to weak international demand, the sales numbers are a big question reeling in investors' minds.
