  1. User feedback: More company and industry analysis please.
    Eg. Deconstruct Buffett or recent buys by others.
    In his book, Jim Rogers used to make students do historical research about conditions/factors that led to moves up or down in the commodity markets.
    Anyone game for something similar? Just for fun and potentially profitable?

    Keep up the good work John. Thank you.

  2. Thanks for the feedback. Your points are well taken. The Macro is less fun than security analysis. Unfortunately, our markets are flooded with manipulated interest rates and “liquidity”. It seems like all macro all the time. Without the $trillions in stimulus, I doubt the market would be where it is today. Japan’s Bond market is toast (sub-prime all over again). It is the first crack. I see profit margins that need to revert by 40% to normalize. Imagine that with a P/E contraction?

    So, other than precious metals shares and perhaps shipping, I don’t find many cheap areas of the market. Do folks want to analyze some mining stocks?

    Maybe a study on why Buffett is selling his consumer stocks?

    Or better yet, what ideas do readers have?

    Thanks for the feedback.
