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.

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...

Alco-Stores Bites The Dust
I've had a few people ask me about ALCO Stores (ALCS) recently, so I thought I would answer the questions here. ALCS used to be a net-net that eventually ended up chewing through all its assets and finally declared bankruptcy. I haven't followed it very closely over the last year, but even so I think there is a lot to be learned from this situation. More...

This Footwear Maker Is a Smart Long-Term Investment
Skechers USA (SKX), a global leader in footwear, reported impressive results for the second quarter 2014 that beat consensus estimates on both the top as well as the bottom lines.

Both these categories recorded double-digit growth in the wholesale business in home as well as in the international markets. Also, the company during the quarter benefited from the rollout of new products coupled with augmented marketing and sales activities.

Samsung Galaxy S5 Plus – Another Star In The Smartphone Galaxy
The dust raised by the ongoing smartphone war did not yet get a chance to settle and another new contestant has made its debut but rather a hush-hush entry. The coming of this phone did not grab much media attention unlike the other big launches in the last couple of months. This new star just got unveiled subtly without much trumpet blowing. But this is unlikely of the makers of this new smartphone. More...

Coke's Earnings Disappoints The Street  - Coke's Earnings Disappoints The Street
The beverage giant, Coca-Cola (KO), posted its third quarter earnings on Tuesday, and soon after, its share price fell as the results were dramatically below the Street consensus. The management has come up with a cost-cutting plan of action to restore the declining sales, especially in the U.S. where buyers are not purchasing soft drinks for health reasons. Let’s have a sneak peek into the quarter earnings and have a brief look at the upcoming strategies to keep its market share safe against rivals like PepsiCo (PEP), which posted a much better quarter.

David Winters Fund Third Quarter Commentary
Asian Market Sell-Off Offers Long-Term Opportunities Further signs of an economic slowdown in China’s economy sent the markets lower during the third quarter, with the late-September demonstrations in Hong Kong adding to the unsettled conditions. Real estate prices declined, factory output slowed, and consumers put the brakes on spending. While the speed of the economic slowdown occurred at a faster pace than many had predicted, the Chinese government’s efforts at “taking away the punch bowl” before a bubble could form (and burst) have been wellscripted. Chinese banks have been reducing liquidity and cutting back on new loans for some time now. We believe these measures are a rational and appropriate response to an economy that was growing at an unsustainably fast pace. The trillion-dollar question is whether China can manage to head off a bubble without stalling the economy. More...

IBM: From Best to Good  - IBM: From Best To Good
A while ago, I wrote an article about IBM (IBM), which you can find here. In that article, I laid out a simple case for IBM if you have a 5-year+ investing horizon. Since then, we have seen another lackluster quarter, which had the effect of chopping off the price of “the Big Blue” by a good amount. As one of Warren Buffett’s largest holdings, IBM has certainly attracted a lot of attention, especially with the recent price drop. In this article, I want to briefly touch on the point that IBM has gone from the very best business to a good business since Buffett’s initial purchase during the first quarter of 2011. More...
