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...

Mairs & Power Small Cap Fund Comments on Donaldson
Minneapolis-based Donaldson (DCI) is a long time Mairs and Power holding, familiar to the firm but new to the Small Cap Fund. The manufacturer of filtration systems and replacement parts in a variety of industries was affected by recent weakness in off-highway vehicle (and Donaldson filters) sales creating an attractive opportunity for the Small Cap Fund to initiate a position in the stock.

Mairs & Power Small Cap Fund Comments on Oasis Petroleum
Oasis Petroleum (OAS) (oil exploration and production) was the worst performing stock for the year. While the company was able to earn phenomenal returns on wells drilled in North Dakota’s Bakken at $100+/barrel oil prices, the economics significantly degrade when oil is less than $50 a barrel.

Mairs & Power Small Cap Fund Comments on Gentherm
Gentherm (THRM) (heating and cooling technology primarily utilized in automobile seats) was also a top performer for the year, though the stock was among the lowest performers in the fourth quarter as some of its business is tied to energy efficiency. Longer term, the company still appears well positioned regardless of what happens with oil prices. More...

Mairs & Power Small Cap Fund Q4 2014 Commentary
Investors could be forgiven if they looked back on 2014 as a year of mixed signals. Concerns about slowing growth in China, a possible recession across Europe and increasing tensions with Russia over their aggressive moves against Ukraine all contributed to market uncertainty. On the other hand, earnings continued to exceed expectations and the rapid decline in energy prices put a tailwind behind the U.S. economy, rewarding investors with the sixth year in a row of positive returns and the longest run since the bull market of the 1990s.

Unilever Is Out To Win Market Share From All The Geographies
A well known brand globally, Unilever Plc. (UL) continues to give a tough fight to its biggest competitors on the brand portfolio front as well as well as stock front. The company has some power-packed fast-moving consumer goods (FMCG) brands which are used every day by billions globally. In all, the company has roughly around 400 brands, of which 14 are one dollar brands and 11 brands have found their way in the list of world’s top 50 FMCG brands of 2014. Lux, Knorr, Dove and some other famous brands of Unilever account for almost 54% of the company’s sales. The low oil prices and the resultant cheaper commodity prices have acted as a tailwind for Unilever. It has helped the company to achieve the desirable results and the stock has performed well on most benchmarks. The weakening Euro is also helping in Unilever’s case. Let’s check out how Unilever has grown into a FMCG giant while P&G (PG) has been in shrinking mode. More...

American Airlines’ Remains A Great Stock To Invest In
The ongoing power struggles in Middle East comprises the latest one being the standoff between Saudi Arabia and Yemen Shia rebels. The latest geopolitical scuffle in the Middle East has given rise to speculative oil prices, with the fear of a possible shortage of oil. Millions of barrels pass through the 18-mile Bab el-Mandeb point which lies between Yemen and Djibouti separating the Gulf of Aden from the Red Sea and the Suez Canal. By the end of the trading season on March 26, this reflected on the recovery shown by the oil sector. The trading hours saw the industry standard Brent crude oil, due for delivery in the month of April, rise by 4.46% to close at $59 per barrel and the West Texas crude gained 4.19% to close at $51.27 a barrel. Experts believe that this knee jerk reaction may have a temporary effect on oil prices; as Saudi Arabian, Nigerian and Mexican oil is waiting to hit the U.S. shores. More...

Technology Sector Dividend Aristocrats To Vie For
When it comes to dividends paid out, the technology sector slightly lags behind other sectors, because most of the technology companies focus on reinvesting their profits into business and spending on research and development or developing internal infrastructure. Even some of the biggest names in the technology industry cannot match some of the lesser known names in the pharma or consumer product sector as far as dividends are concerned. With these factors in mind, companies that pay out reasonable dividends too are considered in high regard by investors who want to invest heavily in this sector.
