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.

We initiated positions in two aluminum companies last fall, Alcoa (AA) and Norsk Hydro (OSL:NHY), that we saw as commercial opportunities or, as we like to call them, “3 to 1s”, i.e., 3x the perceived upside to its downside. The oversimplified and bigger picture view was that we saw the price of aluminum was at an inflation-adjusted low and the stock prices of these companies were down in kind, as can be seen in the following graphs.
