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...

Meridian Growth Fund Annual Report 2015 Our primary objective is to create an “all-weather” small-cap growth portfolio that has the potential to outperform in a variety of market conditions.
Our primary objective is to create an “all-weather” small-cap growth portfolio that has the potential to outperform in a variety of market conditions. The 2014 market environment experienced several different weather patterns which resulted in notably higher volatility. Given our focus on downside protection, we welcome more volatile market environments. To this end, we were able to capitalize on increased volatility to outpace the benchmark by 4.65% during the second half of 2014. Volatility has been more muted for the first half of 2015 which has created a headwind to relative portfolio performance. More...

Investing For The Long Haul – JRW Commentary July 2015 How long term thinking benefits investment performance
Earnings season has been in full swing over the last few weeks as corporate officers kneel before the analyst community and lay bare the fortune or misfortune that has befallen their firms over the previous three months. Company reports usher in a period of volatility in the stock market as market participants make their feelings known through aggressive buying or selling shares in response to what the company has to say. This volatility in response to incredibly short periods of performance has caused me to reflect on the long-term nature of our investing philosophy. More...

Policy Changes Should Help China Over the Long Term Country seems to be on track to be more competitive in the future
Recent changes in China’s economic policies have added increased volatility for the U.S. equity market and specifically for company’s such as Apple (NASDAQ:AAPL) and Intel (NASDAQ:INTC) which have a high level of sales revenue exposure to China. In a recent interview, David Loevinger of TCW discussed his view on China and its recent economic policy changes. According to Loevinger, China’s economy does not seem to be headed for a hard landing. Despite the volatility created from its recent policy changes, it appears the country is on track to become more competitive over the long-term. More...

If You Need To Reduce Risk, Do It Now – John Hussman He explains the importance of investor attitudes
The single most important thing for investors to understand here is how current market conditions differ from those that existed through the majority of the market advance of recent years. The difference isn’t valuations. On measures that are best correlated with actual subsequent 10-year S&P 500 total returns, the market has advanced from strenuous, to extreme, to obscene overvaluation, largely without consequence.

Buying Opportunities Remain in the Financial Sector Interest revenue makes large banks more susceptible to Fed policy uncertainty
While the market has recovered some of its losses from the recent market selloff, the financial sector still looks particularly enticing in the current market environment. Financial sector stocks have suffered some of the market’s greatest losses, given the increased volatility primarily caused from uncertainty around Fed policy decisions. The increased volatility and market uncertainty primarily began following the devaluation of China’s currency on Aug. 11. China’s devaluation and ensuing monetary policy changes have increased the dollar’s strength resulting in less progress towards the Federal Reserve’s price stability objective. The lack of price stability progress will likely be the key factor keeping the Federal Reserve from acting on an interest rate increase. More...

Times Like This – Matthews Asia Putting some context on current turbulence
Times like this in the markets can be unsettling. We are accustomed to dealing with risk; that is to say we are familiar with “normal” market swings from year to year. But when there is a sudden abrupt fall in markets, investors may find themselves at a loss. This is not about risk, as such, but about uncertainty: “What is going on?” More...

China's Economy Undergoing a Transformation Nobody Is Talking About – U.S. Global Investors A closer look at China's transformation Ray Dalio - China's Economy Undergoing A Transformation Nobody Is Talking About – U.S. Global Investors
The photo you see below was snapped recently in Beijing. It might not be that special to some readers, but in my 25 years of visiting the Chinese capital, I’ve never seen a blue sky because it’s always been blotted out by yellow smog. Beijing is clearly undergoing a transformation right now. This might please proponents of the green movement, but it’s ultimately harmful to the health of the manufacturing sector. More...
