Ignore the Pundits! Six Gurus Weigh in on the Economy
To get a little perspective about the economy, it is always smart to get insight from some of the best gurus; there is so much noise in the media that it is hard to filter it out. While it is almost impossible (if at all possible) to predict the future, I have much more faith listening to gurus, who have predicted previous crises, and what they think about the current economic situation. Some are bullish; some are bearish. But it is always worthwhile to hear their opinions (I might be doing a part II on this). Read more...

Why Gannett May be Regaining Its Strength
Gannett Co. Inc. (GCI) is one of the largest media conglomerates in the industry, with its three business divisions publishing, broadcasting, and digital. With the publishing sector facing strong headwinds as consumers gradually shifted towards digital media options, the company decided to acquire the TV company Belo in 2012, with the hopes of reversing the steep decline in revenue experienced since 2007. Today, with the acquisition almost fully integrated, the firm is back on track and the future is looking bright. This probably led to investment gurus Steven Cohen (Trades, Portfolio) and Leon Cooperman (Trades, Portfolio)’s recent purchase of the company’s shares. More...

How Sprint’s Bid for T-Mobile US Will Impact Its Future
On my usual morning reading of The Wall Street Journal, I stumbled upon an interesting piece of news a few days ago: Sprint (S) is considering making a bid for T-Mobile US (TMUS) during the first half of 2014. If the deal were to go through, the U.S. wireless market would become dominated by three big companies: Verizon Wireless (VZ), AT&T (T) and Sprint. However, the company has not yet confirmed this move, mainly because of regulatory (antitrust) boundaries. More...

How are premium members of GuruFocus supposed to evaluate the list of Gurus when more often than not there is no historical performance records. Most of the time the "profile/performance" tab does not have anything on performance. Why not?

Also, if you do not have the performance record, then how do you even know that they deserve to be in the Guru list? Maybe they should not be listed?
