Investor Jim Rogers Tells Fox Business Agriculture Is “Going to Be One of the Great Industries of Our Time”
Chairman and CEO of Rogers Holdings Jim Rogers spoke with FOX Business Network (FBN) about the United States deficit and the path the nation and individuals need to take in order to prosper. Rogers said that the U.S. economy will not recover until we “accept reality, stop spending money we don’t have, go down to a lower level, and start over.” He went on to say that particularly in such an uncertain economy, “you should invest in only what you know, otherwise keep your money in cash.” Excerpts from the interview are below: Read more...

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...

Mawer Funds Commentary - Thrill Ride or Smooth Path?
The scenery in Calgary is wonderful, great for outdoor activities. Just this summer, Kara, a member of our Research team started mountain biking. She liked this adventurous form of recreation so much, she invested in new gear and jumped at the opportunity to register for a 24-hour mountain biking marathon. To our relief, Kara returned from the marathon primarily intact—albeit fairly bruised. But it is certainly hard to blame her for taking the risk. The inspiring stories that we hear from our CIO Jim, an experienced mountain bike racer, are hard to resist acting out for ourselves. I have to confess that I started biking this year, too. The difference is that I bike to the office on a smooth, safe path along the river. In comparison to Jim and Kara’s biking excursions this may seem boring, but Jim has years of biking experience under his helmet; and as for Kara, suffice it to say, I am glad she returned mostly unscathed.

A Few Thoughts on Reducing Unforced Errors  - A Few Thoughts On Reducing Unforced Errors
This weekend I came across a link to an excellent Manual of Ideas interview with Allan Mecham that I've read before, but I decided to read through it again. There are a few key points that Mecham brings up that I think are really worth repeating, so I thought I’d highlight them here. Investing is not easy, but it should be simplistic. Here are some points worth keeping in mind: More...

Europe Continues To Be a Tough Market for General Motors and Ford
General Motors (GM) and Ford (F), America’s favorite car makers, have been struggling for some time to gain ground in the European markets. The region with its not-so-flourishing economy has been causing pain to the Detroit auto makers, clearly visible in the poor sales and profit figures. What’s behind all this? The answer is depressed demand and low consumer confidence. While several other car makers bagged strong numbers, for GM and Ford the latest sales figures resonated the same trend, yet again. Analysts are not very hopeful for a turnaround in 2015. Here’s a lowdown on the situation. More...

Murray Stahl’s Horizon Kinetics 3Q 2014 Commentary
This year’s commentaries review some of the surprising ways in which scientific-seeming or rule-based approaches to investing, which are now the norm and implemented via exchange-traded funds (ETFs) and index-based mutual funds, are foiled in practice by the social science reality of the fluid marketplace. A formulaic approach can work for a while, until a sufficient number of additional investors apply it. Their aggregate actions impact the supply/demand balance, valuations change, and the formula can no longer work. In reviewing some popular building blocks of the asset allocation model of investing, we have, hopefully, demonstrated: More...
