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...

Jeremy Grantham's GMO Q2 Letter - 'Summer Essays'
1 Bubbles Again: Setting Up for a Deal Frenzy Despite a shocking 2.9% setback in first quarter GDP (quarterly decline at annualized rate), the extent of which was forecast by no one, and despite a substantial decline in NIPA corporate earnings, the market has climbed slowly but steadily in recent months. Market volatility has declined to very low levels despite these setbacks and despite Middle Eastern problems. (The negative January Rule this year has, for that matter, also been ineffective so far.) So, all is apparently well, as we have arrived within three months of the dreaded (by bears) Presidential third year. Accordingly, my recent forecast of a fully-fledged bubble, our definition of which requires at least 2250 on the S&P, remains in effect. More...

John Rogers' Ariel Fund Q2 2014 Shareholder Letter
Investing in small- and mid-cap stocks is riskier and more volatile than investing in large-cap stocks. The intrinsic value of the stocks in which the portfolio invests may never be recognized by the broader market. Investing in equity stocks is risky and subject to the volatility of the markets. Ariel Fund often invests a significant portion of its assets in companies within the financial services and consumer discretionary sectors and its performance may suffer if these sectors underperform the overall stock market.

Is Abercrombie & Fitch the Best Teen Retail Stock?
Abercrombie & Fitch (NYSE: ANF) has surprised the market with its performance this year. The teen retailer was down in the dumps in 2013, but it gained almost 16% so far in 2014. In fact, Abercrombie has outperformed the likes of Aeropostale (NYSE: ARO) and American Eagle (NYSE: AEO) by a huge margin. Its results have been strong, and the turnaround strategies look impressive, which is why there's a good chance that Abercrombie might continue performing well in the future. More...

Here's Why Investors Should Stay Away From 3D Systems
3D Systems (DDD) is not doing well this year. Despite the fact that the organization reported great development in revenue in the last reported first quarter, its earnings plunged on the excess of investments to develop the business. This looks like a smart move, as analysts expect the 3D printing industry to develop at a stupendous rate of 45% per year work 2018, hitting a size of $16.2 billion, as indicated by Canalys. More...

Richard Pzena's Second Quarter 2014 Commentary
The last three years have been good to investors in developed market equities. Since the 2011 market bottom in the depths of the European financial crisis, the MSCI World index has advanced 66.8% on a cumulative basis, with some of the strongest results in the U.S., where the S&P 500 index has gained 84.1%. Although company fundamentals (earnings, cash flow, etc.) were supportive of an increase in valuations, some investors are concerned that stock prices may have come too far, too fast, and are worried that a correction may be in the offing. Because the U.S. stock performance has been so strong, investors are fearing downside to stocks and value stocks in particular. Some high-flying growth stocks have already suffered. In this context we have examined the history of value stock performance when markets sell off, asking the question: More...

John Rogers Comments on Contango Oil & Gas Co
Also, natural resources explorer Contango Oil & Gas Co. (MCF) slipped –11.37% after an earnings report that disappointed the Street. Specifically, the company’s first-quarter loss of $10 million was driven by $42 million in dry-hole (a well that produces no commercially viable oil and gas) costs from a Gulf of Mexico well. Investors focused heavily on that unfortunate news—which we see as an unlucky part of the business— rather than on the company’s otherwise solid numbers. We were quite encouraged that the company plans to shift its capital expenditures entirely onshore where dry-hole risks are much lower. More...

Here's Why TriQuint Semiconductor Can Continue Rising
Triquint Semiconductor (TQNT) has been a decent performer in the past and the stock has picked up more than 60% in the last year. With Apple (AAPL) being its significant customer and the proposed merger with RF Micro Devices, the semiconductor producer has pulled in numerous investors. With everything working smoothly, we should see whether Triquint is a decent purchase or not. More...

Marvell Technology's Weakness Is a Good Investment Opportunity
Marvell Technology Group (MRVL) is a worldwide pioneer in incorporated silicon solutions, giving chips to various applications such as storage and mobile. The organization has been an outstanding performer in the last one year with shares up more than half, yet there's something else entirely to come later on.

This Footwear Company Is a Weak Investment
Shoe creator Crocs (CROX) has got off to a disappointing start this year. Its final quarter was upsetting because of numerous factors, and rivalry from Wolverine World Wide (WWW) and Deckers Outdoor (DECK) is a thistle in the flesh for Crocs. So, does this make Crocs a stock to stay far from? More...

John Rogers Comments on Charles River Laboratories Intl Inc
Preclinical testing firm Charles River Laboratories Intl, Inc. (CRL) dropped –11.30% as mergers and acquisitions ramped up in the health-care sector. Health-care consolidations have been rising, the most prominent being a proposed $100 billion acquisition of Astra-Zeneca by Pfizer Inc. (PFE), and with mergers come the rationalization of research capabilities. The market tends to react swiftly and sharply to such events. We think such reactions are generally overblown, as the effects tend to be more short-term than long-term; as such we think Charles River has become a better bargain lately. More...

John Rogers Comments on CBRE Group Inc
In addition, global real estate company CBRE Group, Inc. (CBG) jumped +16.81% after a very strong quarterly earnings report. Its adjusted earnings per share were $0.25, $0.08 higher than expectations, on the basis of strong revenue overall and nearly across its units. The market seemed especially pleased that management saw more upside than downside for the rest of 2014. More...

John Rogers Comments on US Silica Holdings Inc
Industrial sand producer U.S. Silica Holdings, Inc. (SLCA) piled up a +45.60% return after a great earnings report. Recent results were solid, but the key takeaway from management’s comments was the comparison of the current environment to that of 2011 and 2012, when business boomed based on heavy demand. All along, we have viewed Silica as a cyclical business, so we expected it to improve along the way; by the same token, we do not think a great environment will persist forever. More...
