Regular readings for Value Investor? Financial Times or WSJ?
Posted by: AshishGupta (IP Logged)

Right now my main source of financial reading
1) Gurufocus
2) A nnual reports of companies I am following or I own
3) Classic investing books by the gurus like Howard Marks etc

I do not have cable connection, so no CNBC or Fox.

I am a bottoms up value investor. I tried macro investing, momentum investing and other styles but I failed miserably at everything except bottoms up value investing. B ottoms up value investing is the only thing that I seem to have some temperament for.

Do you find reading Financial Times (or WSJ) useful for your investing as value investor?
What other sources of regular reading would you recommend?

Buffett reads WSJ, not sure about FT. Howard Marks quotes both regularly, so he must read both.

We subscribe Barron's, Fortune. They are good reads.

Manual of Ideas is a rich source of investing ideas and in-depth analyses. Also has regular interviews and organizes online investing conferences. Requires subscription.

Value Investor Insight often has valuable interviews with prominent value investors. Also requires subscription. There's a sister edition which tracks Superinvestor moves.

Howard Marks' "Memos from The Chairman" are must-reads in my opinion. Free on Oaktree site.

Ashish -- regarding Value Investor Insight, there's an interview with Robert Rodriguez of First Pacific available free here. It's representative of the VII format: http://www.fpafunds.com/media_folder/value-investor-interview-with-bob-rodriguez-and-dennis-bryan
