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...

This Equipment Giant Is on the Road to Recovery
The global farming sector is declining and it is putting pressure on companies in this industry. One such farm equipment giant, Deere (DE), recently released its results for the third quarter which were not up to the mark. But still, on some grounds and as compared to peers, the company did pretty well with decent results. The financials were weak on the back of poor demand and difficult conditions in the global farm sector. However, Deere thinks that it is doing well and will be able to post better results in the future as it is seeing higher shipment volumes. More...

This Apparel Retailer Isn't a Smart Investment Yet
Women's apparel retailer Chico’s FAS (CHS) recently reported its results for the second quarter that didn’t meet expectations. The results were disappointing as the company couldn’t meet consensus estimates on both the top and bottom lines.

Does Yum! Look Yummy Anymore?

People now find it easier to shop online rather than taking the pains of going to a store to buy products. Also, weakness in consumer spending has been a crucial reason for lower store traffic.

The Dogs of the Dow Lost Some Steam In The August Heat, But Maintained Their Lead
The year got off to an inauspicious start with weak performance for equities in January. But since then, and despite a less-than-ideal global economic and political backdrop, the bull market for equities (now in its sixth year) has regained its footing. As a result, key benchmarks such as the S&P 500 and Dow Jones Industrials have scaled new heights without suffering a correction. The Dogs of the Dow strategy has fully participated in the runup with August marking a seventh straight month of advances in market value. (As a reminder, this trading system calls for buying equally weighted positions in the 10 highest-yielding Dow Industrials stocks at the beginning of the year, then repeating the process 12 months later.)
