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...

Robert Olstein Comments on Aegion Corp
The Fund eliminated its position in industrial goods/infra- structure company Aegion Corp. (AEGN), after we lost confidence in company management and its ability to effectively implement a clear, consistent strategy. We were initially attracted by the company’s prospects, approximately three years ago, as it transitioned from a company whose earnings were dominated by municipal sewer servicing to being a well-rounded pipeline service provider with increased exposure to energy and mining and structural and construction businesses. During the recent stages of this transition, however, management has continued to provide excuses for underperforming business segments and overall poor company performance without articulating a clear strategy for moving forward.

Kraft Foods Merger With Heinz On The Cards
Kraft Foods Group, Inc. (KRFT), one of the big names in the packaged foods business, is about to strike a merger deal with Heinz, the deal being orchestrated by Warren Buffett’s Berkshire Hathaway (BRK.A) and the Brazilian private equity firm 3G Capital Partners L.P.

The acquisition is expected to close in the later part of this year. Kraft shares increased almost 16.5% to $71.44 in after-hours trading on Tuesday after this merger news surfaced to the top.

What Are The Intrinsic Factors Contributing To Pfizer’s Stock Movement?
Global pharma major Pfizer (PFE) is currently being given a decent bit of "financial attention," as it now prides itself for creating the next supposed blockbuster drug, Ibrance. This next wonder drug is being seen by the medical community as the next best alternative to chemotherapy, which often has detrimental side-effects on patients. Traditionally, chemotherapy destroys the good and bad tissue cells (cancer affected) altogether, which later renders the patient weak in health and develops other health complications for them. Ibrance is the medical alternative, which will help eliminate the affected cancer cells only. According to sell-side firm Jefferies, the financial implications from the sales of this drug will be significant over the next 2 years as it gains quick popularity. That is the reason why the firm has a put a firm 'buy' rating on the Pfizer stock, and estimated the price to touch $45 from the earlier forecasted price target of $42. The news has given the Pfizer stock a positive push forward with 2.72% jump at its last closing, bringing the price to $35.18 a share. More...

What Makes Advance Auto Parts Such A Great Company?
The aftermarket retail industry has grown over the last few years since people are less willing to spend on new cars and try to maintain the existing ones for a long time. This has resulted in an increase in the average life of vehicles. An obvious result of the same is higher demand for replacement parts and repairs of automobiles. More...

What Makes Dr Pepper Snapple Such A Lucrative Bet?
According to ABC News, in 1998 Americans drank an average of 51 gallons of soda. However, the consumption dropped 20% in 2014, clocking in at 44 gallons.

Target’s Pay Hike Policy Marks A New Beginning For The Retailer
Target Corporation (TGT), the American retail company, may raise the minimum standard pay rate to $9 per hour following the footsteps of Walmart Stores, Inc. (WMT). The increased wage rate will be applicable to employees from this April onwards. The decision comes after the company's arch rival Walmart decided to increase the minimum wage rate to $9 per hour. Walmart revealed that its employees will be paid around $10 per hour. Such a raise of the minimum wage rate would benefit around 500,000 Walmart workers. On similar lines, TJX Companies, Inc. (TJX) stated that its employees would receive an increased wage rate of $9 an hour in June and $10 per hour in 2016. Though Target is following in its competitors’ footsteps, it still has to go a long way in matching up with the wages received by other American retail companies. Although the company has not made any official announcement yet, Reuters and Dow Jones confirmed the news. More...

Investment Times Are A-Changing – New Landscape and New Approaches: Arete Asset Management  - Investment Times Are A-Changing – New Landscape And New Approaches: Arete Asset Management
The market for public stocks has changed so much over the last 30-40 years that many aspects are barely recognizable any more. Thanks to declining pension plan coverage, advancing technology, proliferating index funds and plenty of other reasons, far more people own stocks now. This massive broadening of stock ownership also created a boom for third-party investment management which, given the amazing growth prospects, was often built on the model of a "net" designed simply to catch as much demand as possible. The unfortunate consequence for investors has been that just as they have had to accept much greater responsibilities for managing funds for retirement, they have also been challenged with a mind-boggling array of investment choices.
