The metric has been a poor indicator of value since the financial crisis

At the end of June, Inigo Fraser-Jenkins, head of global quantitative and European equity strategy at Sanford C. Bernstein & Co., published a research report on value investing, which contains some interesting revelations.

The mean reversion principle

As any value investor who has followed the teachings of Benjamin Graham and early life of Warren Buffett (Trades, Portfolio) will know, these great value investors started their investment careers buying securities trading at a deep discount to book value, which they used as a shortcut for calculating intrinsic value.

According to Fraser-Jenkins' research, however, this metric may no

An activist investor who really, really did not want to change his mind about Herbalife

How willing are you to change your mind when your ideas turn out to be wrong, or at least not as good as you thought? That’s the issue at the heart of chapter nine in “Big Mistakes: The Best Investors and Their Worst Investments.” Michael Batnick’s 2018 book aims to help other investors avoid the mistakes made by investing legends.

He wrote:

“The world is always changing, but our views usually don't evolve alongside it. Even when we're presented with evidence that disconfirms our previous views, straying far from our original feelings is too painful for most to bear.

Secular growth is crucial to the compounding effect of stock returns as companies find opportunities to reinvest at attractive rates of return

Background

When it comes to investing, it is widely understood that not all growth is equal. Only the growth resulting from reinvesting retained earnings internally may deliver the most benefits to shareholders because it is organic, requiring no outside capital and, hence, no financial leverage or dilution. This leads to the compounding effect of return. These opportunities to reinvest at attractive rates of return are often driven by secular growth (i.e., long-term trends) along with more sustainability than the cyclical growth accompanied by more risk. This is one factor for many great investors, such as Warren Buffett (Trades,

The company’s strategy could boost its long-term outlook

Despite rising 20% in the last year, McDonald’s Corp. (MCD) could deliver further stock price growth. The company is implementing a strategy that focuses on innovation, technology, delivery services and its international growth potential.

Although there are risks facing the fast-food restaurant sector, the company’s promotional strategy may differentiate it from competitors.

Having delivered double the growth of the S&P 500 in the last year, the stock appears to have further capital growth potential.

Lessons from McDonald's, Microsoft and Pabrai Funds

To kick off chapter 14 of “The Dhandho Investor: The Low-Risk Value Method to High Returns,” author and hedge fund manager Mohnish Pabrai (Trades, Portfolio) returned to the story of the Patels. In 1976, B.U. Patel bought the “very modest 20-room” Dunes Motel in Anaheim, California and then went on to build a mini-empire. It was a true rags-to-riches story about a poor immigrant from the Gujarat state in India.

His secret to success, aside from hard work, discipline and business smarts, was due to what Pabrai calls Dhandho investing. That’s finding situations with low risk

Some tips for finding companies that create value

An investor's job is to find, and invest in, companies that will create value over the long term.

Finding these businesses isn't easy, particularly from an investor's perspective. But what if we flip the question on its head?

Rather than looking for companies that might be good investments, it might make sense to look for businesses that are attractive from the customer's perspective.

I'm not saying this is a one-step solution to finding good stocks, but there are plenty of examples where companies that focus on the customer above all else have proven to be fantastic investments.

The Sage of Omaha sees much more than numbers when he studies a balance sheet

In the second section of "Warren Buffett and the Interpretation of Financial Statements: The Search for the Company with a Durable Competitive Advantage,” authors Mary Buffett and David Clark took us through Warren Buffett (Trades, Portfolio)’s ideas about balance sheets.

Summary of an interesting interview with guru John Rogers of Ariel Investments

On April 11, John Rogers (Trades, Portfolio) of Ariel Investments appeared on CNBC in an interesting and lengthy interview. The most surprising new thing I learned is that he beat Michael Jordan 1-on-1. At basketball! I searched for the proof and you can find it below. Certainly, the only value investor with this distinction. However, just like Warren Buffett (Trades, Portfolio), he doesn't use a computer or email, which is rather surprising as well.

How to invest

Rogers offers a few general but interesting pointers on investing if you are starting out:

Change is the key to finding special situations that can turn into profitable opportunities

The aim of Joel Greenblatt (Trades, Portfolio)’s 1999 book, “You Can Be a Stock Market Genius: Uncover the Secret Hiding Places of Stock Market Profits,” was to take readers off the beaten path so they could discover new investment opportunities.
