  • Carl Icahn Buying Profitable Auto Holdings as Energy, Returns Struggle

    Activist investor Carl Icahn (Trades, Portfolio) made his second bid to acquire the remaining shares of long-time investment Federal-Mogul last week as he seeks to add a third company to his auto segment, one of the most profitable in his fleet, as his oil holdings and returns decline.

    Federal-Mogul (NASDAQ:FDML) represents one of Icahn’s many distressed investments. In 1998, Federal-Mogul had acquired Fel-Pro and Turner & Newall, two of the leading companies whose use of asbestos caused a wave of asbestos-related claims from workers and those exposed to its products.

  • 4 Things Billionaire Investors Have in Common, Part 1

    (This is part one of a four-part series. Each article explains an important trait that billionaire investors have in common. The goal is to explain simple concepts that the best investors in the world use and you can implement today. Success leaves clues, and one of the best ways to learn is to deconstruct and reverse engineer what the best in the world do. So let’s get to it.)

    These articles were inspired by Tony Robbins’ book "Money: Master The Game." The funny thing is I actually haven’t read the book myself.


  • What’s Really Driving Apple?

    Narratives are a fundamental part of our human existence. They’re the key to how we process information. Just as the mind instinctively searches for visual patterns in nature, it also seeks to derive patterns and meaning from information flow. We create stories to help us understand.

    We see this in financial markets all the time, though it’s not always a good thing. You’ve heard the talking heads on CNBC. They hop on camera and try to attribute every little market gyration to one news story or another. This type of narrative creation doesn’t make much sense. Most of the day-to-day movement in the markets is just noise.

  • Is Seasonal Investing the Best Way to Approach the Market?

    What happens when the markets stop making sense? How do you even begin to analyze which stocks to invest in?

    Over the last two years, markets have defied conventional theories, rallied even when the global economies appeared to be struggling and in the process managed to sway several investors into believing that everything was on a roll.


  • Doom, Gloom and Champagne

    There were several key conferences this week where business leaders, investors and big thinkers shared their ideas and thoughts on the world today. The one getting the most coverage is the Ira Sohn conference in New York, where major investors give talks to raise money to fight children’s cancer. The big news out of there is that Stanley Druckenmiller (Trades, Portfolio) said flatly that investors should get out of the market.

    He said the Fed has no end game and their policies are preventing the very growth they had helped to engineer. 


  • Large Discount to Intrinsic Value

    Loral’s share price has dropped more than 50% since the beginning of 2015 while its major assets have been performing well. The stock is currently at 30% to 50% discount to a conservatively estimated fair value. Removing such a discount would result in more than 40% shareholder return.

    Loral’s controlling shareholder has tried several times to remove the discount in the past and is still trying hard. The chances are that it will succeed sooner or later.

  • Carl Icahn Interview With CNBC

    Billionaire activist investor Carl Icahn (Trades, Portfolio) did an interview with CNBC Thursday in which he continued to warn about the coming day of reckoning for the market. During the interview Icahn discussed some of his investments and why he believes the market is overvalued – as well as other topics.

    Part 1


  • Why Icahn Sold Apple

    Carl Icahn (Trades, Portfolio) has been pushing Apple (NASDAQ:AAPL) for about 2½ to three years to buy back stock in a very public manner. Less than a year ago, Icahn described Apple as strongly undervalued and one of the greatest growth stories in corporate history:


  • Apple Is Facing a Big Problem

    Apple (NASDAQ:AAPL) reported its worst-ever quarter earlier this week, missing estimates on both revenue and earnings. Not only were the misses the biggest in Apple’s history, the company’s guidance was also terrible. The high end of Apple’s revenue guidance for the next quarter came in 10% lower than the analysts’ estimate of $47 billion.

    Although Apple is trading at a conservative earnings multiple, Mr. Market’s obsession with growth has pushed Apple’s stock down more than 10% since the earnings release. Moreover, Carl Icahn selling his position in the stock recently put further downward pressure on the stock. It was only a few months ago that Icahn said Apple was worth more than $200 and that buying the stock was a “no-brainer.”


  • American Railcar and HCI Group May Be Undiscovered Gems

    Attention, lovers of small stocks. Here are five small-capitalization stocks that I think qualify as undiscovered gems.

  • Carl Icahn Increases Position in Icahn Enterprises

    Carl Icahn (Trades, Portfolio), the leading guru shareholder and board chairman of Icahn Enterprises (NASDAQ:IEP), increased his position in the conglomerate by more than 2% on April 14.

    That may not sound like a sizable percentage, and it wouldn’t be for garden-variety investors, but 2% means a lot more when the stake is the size of Icahn’s. The guru acquired 2,771,575 shares, which is fewer than 1 million shares shy of the entire stake held by Icahn Enterprise’s second-leading shareholder among the gurus, Murray Stahl (Trades, Portfolio). Stahl’s stake is 3,507,276 shares.
