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 Funds Comments on RigNet Inc
RigNet (RNET) underperformed due to fears around excess supply of offshore drilling rigs. We believe the overall business is misunderstood and the impact of excess drilling rig supply will have a very small impact on RigNet’s growth prospects. The 20% organic growth rate reported by the company in Q2 is not fully appreciated by the market. As we have demonstrated with some of this quarter’s largest contributors, we are patient investors and believe the risk/reward profile from this price is very favorable. We added to our position in RigNet throughout the quarter. More...

Meridian Funds Comments on Carter's Inc
Carter’s (CRI) is a leading retailer of infant and toddler apparel. Carters’ returned 12.72% on the back of a strong Q2 earnings report, which saw bottom-line profits increase 33%. We continue to believe that the company can grow revenues at attractive rates given its low penetration in e-commerce and international markets. Due to the company’s dominant position and strategic initiatives, we believe the runway for growth remains favorable. More...

Meridian Funds Comments on Dresser-Rand Group Inc
Dresser-Rand (DRC) was the target of an acquisition by Siemens. Dresser-Rand provides highly engineered, mission-critical equipment to the energy sector. Despite recent underperformance from a new unit business, our patience was rewarded as Siemens saw the value in the recurring aftermarket profit stream and new product innovations. Given limited upside from current levels, we will likely use Dresser-Rand as a source of cash for better ideas until the deal closes in 2015. More...

Meridian Funds Comments on Cimpress NV
VistaPrint (CMPR) offers online marketing products and services to small businesses. The company was a large negative contributor to performance earlier this year, when its brand repositioning efforts were felt most severely. We added to the position during this weakness, given we felt the revenue headwinds were temporary, and management’s actions potentially improved the long-term characteristics of the business. Our patience paid off during the third quarter, as earnings came in more than 40% above consensus, which drove the stock higher. We trimmed our position in VistaPrint as the stock rose significantly from the low point in July to quarter end. More...

Meridian Growth Fund 3Q 2014 Commentary
Overall, small and mid cap stocks were challenged this quarter, with these stocks exhibiting increased volatility. We were able to take advantage of this volatility, which helped the Meridian Growth Fund (the “Fund”) approach our target of 100% upside participation in market rallies and only 80% downside participation during pullbacks. We believe this ability to protect capital in market pullbacks, yet perform in-line during up markets, is the best way to compound investor capital over time. More...
