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...

Two Insurance Stocks On My Radar  - Two Insurance Stocks On My Radar
From a consumer standpoint I might not really appreciate insurance companies. After all, it seems like the money I spend on my premiums just goes into a black hole, never to be seen from again. I rarely initiate claims, and would prefer to keep it that way, as that means some kind of tragedy has likely befallen me. More...

Terex: A self-help restructuring stock with margin of safety  - Terex: A Self-help Restructuring Stock With Margin Of Safety
It is not good to over-promise and under-deliver on Wall Street. Terex (NYSE:TEX) is a prime example. It previously guided the Street to expect $5 EPS in 2016. But due to the latest $2.35 to $2.50 EPS guidance in 2014, it is almost impossible for Terex to achieve the $5 EPS goal in 2016. As a result, Terex was sold off and provided an unique investment opportunity for long-term investors. Further research shows Terex has already implemented a self-help restructuring program. With margin improvement towards 5% net margins, there is 30% upside potential to invest in Terex. Combined with positive outlook for the non-residential construction recovery, the investment in Terex becomes even more appealling. If we can look through the current disappointing guidance and invest for 2015 and beyond, Terex does provide a favorable risk/reward profile for prospective investors. More...
