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...

Mental Model Application - Simplicity Charlie Munger - Mental Model Application - Simplicity
In my previous article, I highlighted a few points from Alice Schroeder's speech at UVA about Warren Buffett (Trades, Portfolio). One of the points was how Buffett always identifies the one or two factors that will make a business succeed or fail. This ties back to the simplicity mental model that I mentioned in my Charlie Munger (Trades, Portfolio)'s mental models article. Simplicity is enormously important but it's missing in almost all the investment write-ups that I have ever read. In this article, I'd like to share with the readers my thoughts on the subject of simplification and the application of this mental model in the investment process. More...

Will Amazon Be Able to Repeat History?
The consumer electronics market has developed a lot in the past few years and players such as Apple (AAPL), Google (GOOG) and Samsung (SSNLF) have grown as manufacturers.

3 Aftermarket Retailers to Consider
U.S. automakers enjoyed total sales of 15.6 million vehicles last year. However, both the December and annual numbers didn't meet expectations. Sales in December moved up by a meager 0.3% over last year, as the colder weather led to fewer purchases.
