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...

Why Market Trajectory Is No Guarantee for Profitability
Once an industry leader in annuity products, Hartford Financial Services Group Inc. (HIG) has faced some hardship over the past years, as competitors like Berkshire Hathaway Inc. (BRK.A) and American International Group Inc. (AIG) entered the market with their life insurance and annuities offerings. Thus, the firm has recently started selling off these segments, in order to focus on the more profitable businesses: casualty and property, group benefits and mutual services. More...

Will 2014 Be DreamWorks’ Glory Year?
DreamWorks Animation SKG Inc. (DWA)’s fourth quarter results came in somewhat short compared to management’s estimates, with quarterly revenue amounting to $204 million, 62% ($127.9 million) of which was accountable to the company’s film segment. While “Madagascar 3” brought in solid box office sales, reeling in $11.4 million, “Turbo” underperformed, costing the firm $13.5 million. And now it appears the “Mr. Peabody & Sherman” franchise might take the same road, as up to last week it had only managed to gross $143 million from domestic and international box offices. However, investment gurus Paul Tudor Jones (Trades, Portfolio) and Jim Simons' (Trades, Portfolio) hedge fund have been placing their bets More...

Chubb: After the Hurricane Comes the Sun?
As a global, multiline insurer focused on property and casualty, Chubb Corporation (CB) has been a favorite pick among investors in the past, due to its narrow moat rating and experienced trajectory, dating back to 1882.

Pioneer Investments Keeps on Rolling
How many times have we seen the same movie? The good or bad guy, chased by the law, going south. And when saying south, we mean Mexico. It seems to be the paradise for all U.S. citizens looking for some tranquility. What has never been seen though, is the escapee travelling on the Kansas City Southern (KSU). The train operator is commonly known as the NAFTA Railway, since it offers services across North America through a key partnership with Canadian National Railway (CN). In addition, the company owns former Grupo Transportación Ferroviaria Mexicana, today Kansas City Southern of Mexico. Hence, services today connect Canada and Mexico through the Midwest and Mississippi River basin, making the firm a true regional railroad operator. Most important, overall performance continues to catch the market’s attention, and there are clear evidences of gurus making long-term investments. More...

Burger King Worldwide (BKW) has turned around things with its strategic refranchising efforts that have helped the company post much better financial and operational results. As a result, the stock has jumped up 15% this year so far. With the positive movement to continue throughout the year, investors can expect good returns on the stock.
