On Running a Concentrated Portfolio I can also watch 20-30 stocks like a hawk

Yacktman Fund Comments on Microsoft Guru stock highlight
Microsoft (NASDAQ:MSFT)’s shares were strong as investors continued to gain enthusiasm for the company’s cloud-based business prospects, which should return the company to steady growth. Microsoft’s stock is on the more positive side of investor enthusiasm recently after being out of favor for years while its business momentum stalled. We were attracted to the shares because we felt the valuation was too pessimistic and the company had many new business opportunities that we were, in essence, getting for free.

Yacktman Fund Comments on P&G Guru stock highlight
P&G (NYSE:PG)’s shares bounced back during the quarter, although the shares were still down for the year. Strong currency headwinds caused many to overlook the significant progress the company has made in streamlining its business and cutting costs. New Chief Executive Officer David Taylor took charge during the quarter and we anticipate solid execution from him. During the year we increased our position in P&G’s shares when the stock declined.

Yacktman Fund Comments on Staples Guru stock highlight
Staples (NASDAQ:SPLS) was weak after the Federal Trade Commission challenged its proposed merger with Office Depot due to anti- trust concerns. The company is a significant free cash flow generator and inexpensive even though the industry is under intense pressure. There could be significant additional upside if Staples is able to ultimately prevail in its attempt to acquire Office Depot. More...

Consider This Market With Negligible Volatility and Consistently Rising Values Avoid the stress of investing in the stock market  - Consider This Market With Negligible Volatility And Consistently Rising Values
It would be an understatement to call the recent stock market activity turbulent. High stock price volatility makes investors anxious, and some people even become downright frightened. These emotional responses are often exaggerated for people in or near retirement. Therefore, I contend that all investors need to find ways to keep their emotions in check in order to avoid panicking, which typically leads to making a devastating financial mistake. More...

Mario Gabelli Comments on Rolls-Royce Holding plc Guru stock highlight
Rolls-Royce Holding plc (0.6%) (RR – $8.48/ £5.75 – London Stock Exchange) (LSE:RR) provides jet engines, power and propulsion systems, and services to commercial aviation, defense, marine, oil, and gas, and other industries. RR has leading engine positions as the sole supplier on the Airbus A350 and reengineered A330 (i.e. A330neo), and one of two suppliers on the Boeing 787 Dreamliner, two new wide body programs with healthy backlogs, to be delivered over the next decade. Engine deliveries lead to recurring, higher margin parts and service revenues, which benefit the company more than twenty years after new engines are delivered. RR’s stock continues to struggle given a recent view on 2016 earnings that calls for further medium-term headwinds, including reduced aftermarket revenue on parked legacy Boeing 777 aircraft, and weak demand in business jet, regional jet, and marine markets. Given current demand trends, the company is taking aggressive cost that includes relocating production, modernizing factories, eliminating manufacturing redundancy, and trimming layers of management. Just as important is the reinvigoration of firm culture and decision-making under new More...

Mario Gabelli Comments on International Flavors & Fragrances Guru stock highlight
International Flavors & Fragrances (1.3%) (IFF – $119.64 – NYSE) (NYSE:IFF), based in New York, is a leading global supplier of flavor and fragrances and ingredients used in food, beverage, and personal and household care products. It is the third largest manufacturer in the estimated $18 billion global industry, generating revenue and EBITDA of approximately $3 billion and $705 million, respectively. IFF should continue to benefit from the growth of packaged food and personal/household care products in emerging markets, which represent 50% of its revenue, as well as from new product innovation in developed markets. Over the next five years, we expect IFF to generate high single-digit earnings growth (assumes share repurchases). Acquisitions may further enhance this growth rate as the company looks to supplement its technology, geographic reach and/or expand into relevant adjacencies. IFF recently completed the acquisitions of Ottens Flavors, expanding its flavors business in the U.S., and Lucas Meyer Cosmetics, entering the active and functional cosmetic ingredients market.

Mario Gabelli Comments on Home Depot Inc. Guru stock highlight
Home Depot Inc. (2.7%) (HD – $132.25 – NYSE)(NYSE:HD), based in Atlanta, Georgia, is the world’s largest home improvement retailer, with fiscal 2014 revenue of $83.2 billion and EBITDA of $12.1 billion. Home Depot has 2,270 retail stores, which sell a range of building materials, home improvement products, and lawn and garden products, to do-it-yourself, do-it-for-me, and professional customers. We expect the continued improvement in the housing market to provide uplift to Home Depot’s business, encouraging consumers to invest in their homes. Notably, the company generates significant cash flow, has a strong balance sheet, and should continue to benefit as the housing recovery improves. To make use of its available cash flow, we expect Home Depot to continue to repurchase stock. More...

Mario Gabelli Comments on Genuine Parts Co. Guru stock highlight
Genuine Parts Co. (2.0%) (GPC – $85.89 – NYSE)(NYSE:GPC) is an Atlanta, Georgia based distributor of automotive and industrial replacement parts, office products, and electrical and electronic components. We expect GPC’s well known NAPA Auto Parts group to benefit as an aged vehicle population, which includes the highest percentage of off warranty vehicles in history, helps drive sales of automotive aftermarket products over the next several years. Additionally, economic indicators remain supportive of the company’s industrial and electrical parts distribution businesses amid steady economic expansion. Finally, GPC’s management has shown consistent dedication to shareholder value via share repurchases and dividend increases. More...
