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...

Increasingly Confused by Amazon… the Good, The Bad And The Great
Many of you know how much I believe in my “web ecosystem theory”. I have started working on a new article about it and the impact that mobile has had on that theory but as you can guess, I’m still a big believer in placing chips on the 5 major ecosystem players ($GOOG, $AAPL, $FB, $MSFT, $AMZN). I have already taken significant longer term stakes in Apple and Facebook which have worked out well so far. I’m certainly not saying that other tech players can’t have success but it’s important to keep in mind that they will need to co-exist with these established players in order to do well. Netflix ($NFLX), Twitter ($TWTR) and TripAdvisor ($TRIP – which I recently bought – are a few of the players which I think will do well despite not “controlling their ecosystem”. More...

Bear Case
The S&P 500 has declined about 2% since its all-time high of 2,019, and about 1.8% since it's all time closing price of 2,011.36. The market is in a bit of a downward trend and stocks are still overvalued. We still haven't seen a 10% correction in almost five years, which I feel is a little necessary in this raging bull market. The overall market sentiment is that there is still room to run, as Goldman Sachs believes the S&P will end around 2,050, and Stifel Nicolaus believes it will end at 2,300 by the end of the year. Ladies and gentlemen of the investing community, I believe we are entering into the realm of irrational exuberance. More...

Market Indicators That Could Spell Trouble for Investors
Most companies (big and small) have taken some measure of financial engineering to boost their bottom line. With the DOW (DIA) and S&P 500 (SPY) floating around all time highs and the NASDAQ trending towards 2000 peak levels, the share repurchases seemed to have worked for every party involved. Investors are enjoying capital gains, management rewarded with bonuses and Wall Street is seeing record profits. What happens when we surpass moderate share-repurchase levels and become over dependant on financial engineering? Past occurrences suggest a downturn in markets. More...

Market Strategist John Mauldin: The End Of Monetary Policy
Francis Fukuyama created all sorts of controversy when he declared “the end of history” in 1989 (and again in 1992 in the book cited above). That book won general applause, and unlike many other academics, he has gone on to produce similarly thoughtful work. A review of his latest book, Political Order and Political Decay: From the Industrial Revolution to the Globalisation of Democracy, appeared just yesterday in The Economist. It’s the second volume in a two-volume tour de force on “political order.” More...

Analysis: Boeing 737 Max Receives Orders Worth $13.1 Billion
In my latest report on the sector, I had mentioned how Airbus (EADSY) moved ahead in the narrow-body race by successfully completing the maiden flight on the A320neo.

Industry experts believe this to be a significant development in the field. Let’s check out what happened and how this affects Boeing. More...

John Hussman – The Ingredients Of A Market Crash
“The information contained in earnings, balance sheets and economic releases is only a fraction of what is known by others. The action of prices and trading volume reveals other important information that traders are willing to back with real money. This is why trend uniformity is so crucial to our Market Climate approach. Historically, when trend uniformity has been positive, stocks have generally ignored overvaluation, no matter how extreme. When the market loses that uniformity, valuations often matter suddenly and with a vengeance. This is a lesson best learned before a crash rather than after one. Valuations, trend uniformity, and yield pressures are now uniformly unfavorable, and the market faces extreme risk in this environment.” More...
