Patience-focused guru releases portfolio changes

Rogers purchased Lakeland Industries Inc. (LAKE), The Rubicon Project Inc. (RUBI) and Crown Crafts Inc. (CRWS). At the end of the quarter, Ariel Investments’ portfolio listed 160 stocks, valued at $8.9 billion.

Ariel Investments’ approach to investing centers on taking a long-term, patient view. The firm manages portfolios divided into three categories: value, long-term value and global. Its flagship Ariel Fund has returned 11.49% annualized since inception in 1986, beating the 10.48% annualized gain

Discussion of holdings and market

Investing in small- and mid-cap stocks is riskier and more volatile than investing in large-cap stocks. The intrinsic value of the stocks in which the Fund invests may never be recognized by the broader market. Ariel Fund is often concentrated in fewer sectors than its benchmarks, and its performance may suffer if these sectors underperform the overall stock market.

Performance data quoted represents past performance. Past performance does not guarantee future results. All performance assumes the reinvestment of dividends and capital gains, and represents returns of the Investor Class shares. The investment return and principal value of an investment will

Guru adds to two other holdings

Ariel Investments founder John Rogers (Trades, Portfolio) disclosed this week that he exited his stake in Contango Oil & Gas Co. (MCF) and boosted his positions in Edgewater Technology Inc. (EDGW) and Strattec Security Corp. (STRT) on June 30.

Relying on a long-term approach, Rogers and his team pick a concentrated number of small and medium-sized companies that are undervalued. The firm also looks for high barriers to entry, sustainable competitive advantages and predictable fundamentals.

A look at 3 investment ideas proposed by Cale Smith of Islamadora Investment

Usually I'm writing about famous gurus and their investments, but today I wanted to highlight three very interesting investment ideas I pulled from Cale Smith of Islamadora Investment Management's annual presentation.

You can watch the whole hour-long presentation below. It primarily deals with energy and oil prices as well as three stocks in their portfolio. The sheet below shows why they are looking very hard at energy stocks:

Guru stock highlight

In addition, natural resources firm Contango Oil & Gas Co. (MCF) dropped -16.50% due to a significant earnings miss. Analysts were expecting the company to lose $0.33 per share, but Contango lost $0.67. Revenues were down significantly versus the previous year, largely due to the slide in the price of oil. Despite the miss, the company has managed to reduce its debt balance to $111 million—a 4% decrease—this year. We think the company is better positioned than most of its peers, and as such believe the stock is positioned to outperform going forward.

John Rogers' review of third quarter and holdings

Quarter Ended September 30, 2016

Equity markets shook off the malaise that took hold at the end of the second quarter—remember Brexit?—to post a strong quarter all around. Returns were especially good in domestic small caps and international stocks. While the S&P 500 Index advanced +3.85%; the Russell 2000 Index jumped +9.05%; and the MSCI EAFE Index rose +6.43%. The third quarter was the best period for the MSCI EAFE Index in nearly three years, and the best for the Russell 2000 Index in almost two years. We do not believe much changed to drive this result: we simply think

In addition, natural resources exploration and production company Contango Oil & Gas Co. (MCF) gained +83.93% as the price of oil recovered during the quarter. There was no other significant news beyond oil’s rebound—which was good news enough for Contango. Crude oil started 2016 at close to $37 per barrel, sank to a low of $26 in mid-February, then marched back above $40 before settling back a bit. Although the commodity essentially was flat, the rebound showed its year-and-a-half long slide has perhaps found a floor. We continue to think Contango has unrecognized value.

Review of economy and holdings

The first quarter of 2016 was flat in some places and down slightly in others, but we doubt most investors remember it that way. The carnage in January was harsh, and daily volatility has been high, so many likely think of it as a rough three months. Yet the last half of the quarter largely recouped the losses from the first half. Among the three broad indexes tracking our asset classes, one was up a small amount and the other two were down. U.S. large caps were up a small amount. On the other hand, domestic small caps slipped a

Contango Oil & Gas (MCF) disappointed investors when the company reported its fiscal first quarter results. It is for the fourth consecutive quarter that its earnings have lagged behind the analysts’ consensus, which is quite disappointing. Considering its stock movement in the past few months, it seems to have an inverse correlation with oil price. Unlike the share price of its peers, which rose on account of a mild turnaround in the crude prices in the past few months, Contango sunk to its 52-week low. Starting with its numbers, let’s see what can we expect from this stock in the
