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...

Mawer Second Quarter 2014 Investment Newsletter
The Q1 GDP data released in April seemed to indicate a stall in U.S. economic growth. Subsequent data revealed a much steeper economic contraction of 2.9%. Was this evidence that the U.S. economy was losing steam and requiring more aggressive intervention by the central bank? Or was this merely a statistical anomaly that was not indicative of the true state of the economy? More...

Invesco European Growth Fund Comments on Balfour Beatty PLC
Balfour Beatty PLC (LSE:BBY) was one of the largest individual detractors from fund performance during the quarter (0.69% of total net assets). Balfour Beatty is a UL-based multi-national infrastructure company with interests in construction and support services and infrastructure investments. The company released a profit warning and announced the possible sale of its professional services business. The UK construction environment remains challenging, particularly for the most profitable large infrastructure projects. However, a rapid rise in construction margins from current low levels should lead to a significant rise in both earnings expectations and investor interest. More...

Looking for General Value  - Looking For General Value
General Electric (GE) is on of the largest infrastructure and financial services companies in the world. GE produces aircraft engines, oil and gas production equipment, household appliances, power generation equipment and delivers services such as consumer and business financing. This was a very short list of the products and services that GE offers, since General Electric is much more diversified in the types of businesses it operates. A large and diversified company, such as GE, has many different streams of income coming in from its various businesses. As a value investor, we need to figure out whether those income streams will add value to us and our portfolio. More...

Family Dollar/Dollar Tree Merger Announced
Discount store Family Dollar (FDO) has finally put itself up for sale after much pressure from billionaire investor Carl Icahn (Trades, Portfolio), who recently acquired a 9.4% stake in the company. Icahn reportedly sent a letter to Family Dollar’s CEO demanding that the company offer itself for sale, which he believes would greatly improve the company’s performance and bring the company up to speed with other big name rivals. The billionaire investor went as far as to threatening to disperse his demands and recommendations to the company’s shareholders, and to make an attempt at pushing out the entire board of directors. Needless to say, Icahn firmly believed that Family Dollar’s management team was not up to the task of managing the organization’s operations. The discount chain obviously recognized problems within the business when it closed a large number of stores, and announced plans to close almost 400 more More...

Here's Why Pandora Media Is an Enticing Investment
Pandora Media (P) is showing signs of recuperation. The web radio purveyor reported better-than-anticipated results for the first quarter in April. Its revenue was up year-over-year, while the loss contracted. As per CEO Brian McAndrews, an increase in listener engagement and better adaptation prompted a solid performance in the previous quarter. In any case, because of Apple's (AAPL) always developing presence in radio, will Pandora have the capacity to keep making strides? How about we figure out. More...
