It is good to be boring in the investment world

2004 certainly will be remembered as one of the most dynamic periods in Chemed’s 33-year history. In the last twelve months, we raised over $435 million in capital, took our 37% ownership of VITAS to 100%, finalized the reengineering of Roto-Rooter’s operational infrastructure and entered into an agreement to divest our Service America operation. The end result of these changes was to deliver exceptional revenue, earnings and cash flow growth in 2004. The outlook for Chemed in terms of future opportunity and financial performance has never looked better.

Traditional methods for brain access and retraction have not changed in about 50 years. The standard of care for deep incision neurosurgery uses an archaic blade retractor which puts pressure on the brain tissue and causes damage. Vycor (VYCO) has developed and now commercialized two FDA-approved medical devices that address a $700M and $2B+ unmet need, respectively. I believe that 2015 will prove to be an inflection point for the company as two prospective partnerships will accelerate product adoption thus resulting to top line expansion.

I found an interesting portfolio investing idea: Invest in stocks that spend a huge amount of money to support political campaigns.

It's no wonder that corporations have a huge interest in spending money for politics: Each dollar should create a return of 220 bucks in the future. That's a pretty good investment in my view.

I'm no social guy and have no thoughts in my mind how governments work, but stocks that have spent huge amounts for lobbying as a percentage of total assets have performed very well in the past.

You know that I am a conservative investor and try to minimize my risk. This strategy is necessary if you have a larger amount of money to take care of or you begin to cry when you lose 10 percent on your book value. The second disadvantage is that you lose performance in a strong up moving market. Since 2009, there were nearly no bigger corrections at the market but with low beta and safe haven stocks, your performance would be only half of the return from the markets.
