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...

Family Dollar’s Future Under Wrap
We should not be expecting the acquisition of Family Dollar Stores (FDO) to go down without a fight, as the second bid by Dollar General (DG) that was declined by the former is currently being assessed by attorney generals. Family Dollar recently announced that certain state attorney generals have notified the company that they would investigate the takeover bid of Dollar General which went hostile after repeated rejections from the deep discount retailer. After being spurned twice, Dollar General has taken the bid to the shareholders of Family Dollar, thus raising several eyebrows. Presently though Family Dollar urges to be taken over by Dollar Tree (DLTR), another rival of Dollar General, the investigation has raised queries on its ultimate future. Also, Family Dollar which is lagging behind its competitors is devising new strategies to maintain it’s pricing as competitive when compared to its immediate rivals. Let’s get to the crux to understand the present scenario for Family Dollar. More...

Sure Bets: Slow-Changing Industries for Long-Term Investors
The biggest risk in investing is that the business goes bankrupt. This is a 100% loss of your investment; the “worst case scenario.” Progress inevitably leads toward changes in the market. Old business models fail, and new models will succeed. The biggest disruptions of the past several decades have been the personal computer and internet revolution. We now live in a time where the cost of storing and transmitting information has dropped to virtually zero. It is interesting to see what businesses have not been disrupted from the rapid changes the world has seen over the last several decades. More...
