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.

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...

Charles de Vaulx's IVA Funds Newsletter
Warren Buffett (Trades, Portfolio) surprised active managers, especially value investors, when he disclosed a feature of his will in his 2013 shareholder letter: Buffett instructed the trustee for his wife’s cash to put 10% of it in short-term government bonds and 90% in a very low-cost S&P 500 Index Fund. He believes the trust’s long-term results from this policy will be superior to those attained by most investors – pension funds, institutions, or individuals – who employ high-fee managers. This is a very different recommendation from his seminal Superinvestors of Graham-and-Doddsville speech in which he illustrated how active, value managers can do far better than indexes over time.

Ken Heebner's Fund Q2 Commentary
CGM Mutual Fund increased 4.2% during the second quarter of 2014 compared to a return of 5.2% for the unmanaged Standard and Poor’s 500 Index and 2.2% for the Bank of America Merrill Lynch U.S. Corporate, Government and Mortgage Bond Index. For the first six months of the year, CGM Mutual Fund returned 1.1%, the unmanaged Standard and Poor’s 500 Index, 7.1% and the Bank of America Merrill Lynch U.S. Corporate, Government and Mortgage Bond Index, 4.2%. In late June, the Bureau of Economic Analysis released a revised estimate for first quarter 2014 gross domestic product which indicated negative growth of 2.9%. Severe winter weather in much of the country was at least partially to blame, along with a late-falling Easter holiday though some pundits and media outlets were quick to predict a return to recession. However, data for the second quarter of 2014—specifically in housing and auto sales—suggests a rebound in economic growth. More...

A Nation Of ShopKeepers - John Mauldin
Today’s letter will be more philosophical in nature than most – we won’t be looking for technical signals; but it’s August – half the trading world is on vacation (except for the unsleeping computers run by high-frequency traders, who create the bulk of the volume these days), and so any technical signal we picked out this week would be suspect. Yes, August is a great time to think philosophical thoughts about the political economy. So, without further ado, let’s see what has my close friend Dr. Brin so upset. More...

2000 and beyond
Stocks have hit and stayed over 2000, which is a remarkable feat as well as historic. Of course, the current price levels have me a bit skeptical as well as a little fearful for investors jumping into this overvalued market. Earnings have been increasing, but this doesn't mean that we should be willing to pay higher multiples on those earnings. It also doesn't mean that we should only use earnings as the basis of our investment decisions, I'd personally rather use free cash flow. Quantitative Easing, or QE, will end soon, and Fed Chairwoman Yellen has already indicated that she doesn't intend to raise interest rates. More...
