It requires an amazing patience, an iron will to overcome naturally ingrained biases and a strong stomach to get over temporary setbacks. This is the good news for those willing to devote to this investment style. If everyone was practicing it, it would not be so profitable. On the surface value investing looks like shopping. If an $80 shirt is suddenly on sale for $40, you got yourself a deal. Capital markets are actually quite different ...

Two Very Different Approaches to Job Creation | California ...
would create jobs and, although she provides a good discussion of the details, her article seems to miss the bigger picture. Meg Whitman and Carly Fiorina's approach to job creation is quite different from that of Jerry Brown and Barbara Boxer. These differences have a number of aspects, but can be boiled down to this: Brown/Boxer believe that the government has a clear role to play in creating jobs by providing by investing in both working people and in creating the 21st century infrastructure they need to prosper - whereas Whitman/Fiorina believe mass unemployment and further concentration of wealth in the hands of the ... market research, surveys and trends


VALUE TALK: Buying at a Discount... The Classic Approach... The ...
For the past 10 years, I have participated in a fantasy baseball league. [1] The cost per team is $700 and the five teams with the highest points at the end of the season win money - as much as $5,000 for the first-place team. That was enough to get me interested. Not knowing much about fantasy baseball, I started to do extensive research about the game. Fantasy baseball is a game in which players manage imaginary baseball teams based on the real-life performance of baseball players, and compete against one another using those players' statistics to score points. [2] Before the start of the baseball season, a date ... industry trends, business articles and survey research
The Art of Value Investing -
I have asked a very active poster, Bill R. (a.k.a nodoodahs) to be a guest commentator for this Thursday morning's commentary.  Bill is truly a great stock picker, and in this commentary, he will be giving us a basic run-down on how he typically screens for individual stocks.  Judging from the emails that I have gotten over the last few months, I believe this will be a very popular topic, indeed. Before we begin, I believe a little bit of introduction is in order. Like I mentioned in our weekend commentary, I asked him for a quick profile of himself and this is how he responded.  A very modest guy, indeed: " industry trends, business articles and survey research

his fund ranked top 5% by Morningstar among large-cap funds based on one-, three-, five- and 10-year returns. Then 2008 hit, and the fund lost 47.4% for the year.

Portfolio Basics For The Beginner Investor
Arguably the hardest step in investing is the first step. Investors who are just starting out face a sometimes bewildering array of choices, a deluge of advice and the dread that if they make a mistake, they will lose everything. It does not have to be that difficult, though. By following a few general guidelines, investors can make their initial forays into the market. Consider sample, or model, portfolio allocations.

Is it a 1+1=2 type of situation - example: If I buy a piece of land for $50,000 and have a $250,000 house built on it, will the end appraisal be worth $300,000??

As it will be new construction, at least two of the three approaches to value will be used: the sales comparison approach and the cost ...
