Perspecta Inc tops the list

Icahn Enterprises has been a better investment than Berkshire Hathaway

At first glance, the investment styles of billionaire gurus Warren Buffett (Trades, Portfolio) and Carl Icahn (Trades, Portfolio) could not be more different.

Buffett prefers a slow and steady, value-orientated investment approach, while Icahn is an aggressive activist investor who will initiate a few significant positions and then drive for change at the companies he owns.

That being said, you can make a strong argument that both investors do follow a similar investment style because they both buy what they perceive to be undervalued businesses.

The difference is, Buffett rarely gets involved in unlocking

A dividend growth stock that gives investors exposure to gold, but is overvalued right now

Investing in precious metals can be difficult as the performance of companies in this sector is often highly correlated to the price of the metal.

The precious metal investors are likely most familiar with is gold. Investors looking for access to gold can either purchase shares of an exchange-traded fund that tracks the price of gold, such as the SPDR Gold Trust (GLD), or buy shares of gold mining companies.

Gold has actually outperformed the S&P 500 this year. The SPDR Gold Trust has gained 18.6% since the start of 2019, while the index is up 13.2%.

Defensive investors are currently attracted to iron ore producers

James Syme, JOHCM Funds' senior fund manager emerging markets opportunities

As top-down investors, we must be sensitive not only to country-level top -down developments but also to exposure to global top -down drivers. One of the most important ones for emerging- market equities is movement in the U.S. dollar. As the world’s key trading currency, the dollar is the funding denomination for many portfolio investments. This means that a stronger dollar is often linked to lower levels of risk tolerance in global markets as investors withdraw from international investments, including in emerging markets. A stronger dollar is also often linked to weaker commodity prices, as much of the end demand

Growing debt and liquidity concerns make BHP Billiton a very risky bet

Iron minors have enjoyed a bubble-like rally in the last few months. The rally was not driven by fundamentals, however, but by hype. With iron prices moving down again, iron miners have started giving back the gains and I expect the bearishness to continue.

BHP Billiton (BHP) is one such stock, and investors should use the recent surge to sell the stock.

Samarco was a joint venture of Vale (VALE) and BHP Billition that ended in a disaster, literally as well as figuratively for both the companies. The maximum penalty that BHP may have to recompense should be

Don't be on the wrong side of history; get out while you can

Don’t believe the analyst hype. Despite both BofA Merrill Lynch and Goldman Sachs upgrading Joy Global (JOY) stock in recent weeks, the long-term outlook for the coal industry is bleak. It might not go to zero, but its size and use as an energy source is dwindling.

The company’s new initiatives direct service, hard rock and industrial minerals, reduced capacity, inventory reductions, share buybacks, new product development and high-growth markets may prove effective but in the end will likely fail to produce value for shareholders.
