A look back at what the value investor was doing in 2008

If you've not heard of Walter Schloss, I highly recommend seeking out any material you can find on this legendary value investor.

Walter Schloss was, in many ways, one of the last real deep value investors. As many deep value investors gave up on buying cheap stocks, Schloss persevered.

It is said that when Warren Buffett (Trades, Portfolio) decided to close his investment partnerships in the late 1960s, Schloss was the first person he called to sell off many of his deep value holdings - the ones he could not find a buyer for in the market.

After 2 successive years of growth, rally in overall premiums is expected to continue

Things are looking bright for the surety bond industry.

After two successive years of growth, the rally in overall premiums is expected to continue next year despite an expected rise in loss activity. Industry experts say the U.S. economy is showing signs of true recovery and most contractors are reporting a return of acceptable profit margins.

From its peak of $5.5 billion in premium in 2008, the volume saw a sharp drop as the financial crisis spread across all sectors, particularly hurting the construction sector that

Generating outsized returns on $10 billion is very difficult. Tisch also notes that the hedge fund managers that he speaks to are jealous of him because his capital is permanent. Where a

The Loews (L) 2009 annual report surfaced on my desk last week. The title: Consistent VALUE Creation. Last year's monochromatic graphs have been replaced by glossy pictures of traffic cones, drill bits, hard hats, wristwatches, and more. Apparently the investment world is still ignorant to the many changing faces of Loews. Beautifully stacked glasses of water further show cash ($3.03 billion) relative to debt ($870 million). A Swiss Army knife illustrates the different components of value and is entitled "Sum of the Parts". You can lead a horse to water...
