Most of its investments are in U.S. stocks, but it does have some exposure to Western Europe.

Sticking to these criteria, the investor revealed he established 10 new positions during the quarter, exited 10 stocks and added to or

This major lithium producer is trading near multiyear lows

Sociedad Quimica y Minera de Chile (SQM) has dramatically underperformed the market since it peaked early last year. The stock has plunged 47% over this period, whereas the S&P 500 has gained 8%. Consequently, while the index is hovering around all-time highs, the stock is trading near two-year lows.

Such a great divergence is likely to lead many investors to wonder whether the stock has become a bargain, particularly given the exciting growth prospects of lithium. As a result, the Chilean company could be one of the top lithium stocks to buy right now.

Using corporate conditions to time entry into stock purchases

In previous chapters of “Common Stocks and Uncommon Profits and Other Writings,” Philip Fisher argued that investing successfully means finding stocks that are expected to post strong earnings per share growth in coming years.

Following up in chapter five, he asked if investors should buy those stocks when they are found. The answer was “Yes and no.” For example, if investors bought superior companies in the summer of 1929, they would make money if they held those stocks for 25 years.

To maximize profits, though, investors need to have “made the small extra effort needed to understand a few simple

Stocks are trading below their Peter Lynch values

The effects of the U.S.-China trade war are starting to take a toll, hitting American farmers. According to CNBC, soybean farmers are beginning to feel the pressure as their inventories pile up after losing contracts from China, impacting their storage, shipping and freight operations.

As a result, some good investment opportunities may be found among agriculture-related companies that are trading below Peter Lynch value.

Lynch, a renowned value investor, developed this method in order to simplify his stock-picking process. With the belief that good, stable companies eventually trade at 15 times their annual earnings, he compared the stock price

I put 39 companies through the ModernGraham approach last week. These are 5 of the best

I evaluated 39 different companies this week to determine whether they are suitable for Defensive Investors -- those unwilling to do substantial research -- or Enterprising Investors -- those who are willing to do such research. I also put each company through the ModernGraham valuation model based on Benjamin Graham's value investing formulas in order to determine an intrinsic value for each.

Out of those companies, the following were found to be suitable for Defensive and/or Enterprising Investors. I've selected five that were either undervalued or fairly valued based on the ModernGraham value formula. Therefore,

Philip Fisher describes his investment process, which shaped Buffett

If you have not heard of Philip Fisher, you should have. While Benjamin Graham gets most of the credit for educating Warren Buffett (Trades, Portfolio), Buffett himself has stated he is “85% Graham and 15% Fisher.” I would argue this ratio has shifted to 85% Fisher and 15% Graham as Buffett’s strategy has strayed from value toward growth.

Broadly speaking, Fisher’s strategy was growth at a reasonable price, although it was much more involved. Fisher liked to do in-depth research on the companies he was buying, visiting management, suppliers and customers to get the best idea of

Barron's recently wrote an article about the best fund families of 2016; First Trust Advisors was No. 5

Just last week I attended an Insight Forum sponsored by First Trust. Interestingly, neither First Trust nor any of the other top five fund families are based on Wall Street or even in the New York City environs. State Street and Natixis are in Boston, American Funds and Pimco are in southern California and First Trust is headquartered in Wheaton, a suburb of Chicago where I once lived.

None of these firms are known for their offerings of passive index investments, although they may be invested so close to their benchmark in some cases that they may as well be.
