[Quote No.28126] Need Area: Money > Invest
"When considering investing in bank shares consider these points about how they could at that time increase their profits: they could increase the rate they charge for loans further above what it costs them to borrow the funds [including depositors' funds] - which is called the 'net interest margin'; they can increase the volume of loans they make - both consumer lending (housing, credit cards, personal loans) and business lending (which can require them loosening their lending criteria at the risk of lowering asset quality and increasing bad debts down the line); and they can increase their bank charges possibly alienating and losing some of their customer base. They can also increase their loan book size by acquiring another financial institution and its loan portfolio or they can always cut costs, usually through increased technology and fewer staff. They can also expand into new areas like financial advice and wealth management. By considering these profit drivers, it is often possible to gauge what opportunities the different banks have to increase their earnings and whether the time is right to invest and with whom or whether it is better to wait." - Seymour@imagi-natives.com

"[The value of a public company as distinct from its stock price can be referred to as its investment value, reasonable value, fair value or appraised value. But generally it referred to as its intrinsic value. In their 1934 investment classic, Security Analysis, Benjamin Graham and David Dodd give a definition of intrinsic value:] In general terms it is understood to be that value which is justified by the facts, e.g., the assets, earnings, dividends, definite prospects, as distinct, let us say, from market quotations established by artificial manipulation or distorted by psychological excesses." - Benjamin Graham and David Dodd

"Owner earnings are (a) reported earnings plus (b) depreciation, depletion, amortization, and certain other non-cash charges less (c) the average annual amount of capitalized expenditures for plant and equipment, etc. that the business requires to fully maintain its long-term competitive position and its unit volume. If the business requires additional working capital to maintain its competitive position and unit volume, the increment should also be included in (c). However, businesses following the LIFO [Last In First Out] inventory usually do not require additional working capital if unit volume does not change. [The outcome is called free cash flow.]" - Warren Buffett

[Quote No.28145] Need Area: Money > Invest
"Increasingly, I have become concerned that the motivation to meet Wall Street earnings expectations may be overriding common sense business practices. Too many corporate managers, auditors, and analysts are participants in a game of nods and winks. [For example, announcing a major drop in earnings called a 'big bath' to eliminate past mistakes and manipulate earnings in the future, out of these reserves. In this way there are more small rises than small losses and more large losses than large rises, thereby prolonging the good news and its effect in the market place on the stock's price while limiting the bad news to as short a time period as possible so, even if severe, the shock's effect on the stock's price is more limited and often soon overlooked.]" - Arthur Levitt

"[Be wary of earnings estimates by analysts because]... they are not all that reliable. In a comprehensive study from 1985 to 1996, Lawrence Brown (Brown 1997) compared the actual earnings of companies in the next quarter compared to predictions by analysts.... In all, he considered approximately 130,000 forecasts. He found that the average absolute percentage error was 91.6 percent and that the average error was 48.9 percent on the high side. This means that on the average, analysts estimated earnings to be almost 50 percent higher than what they turned out to be. For 25 percent of the time their estimates were too low by 10 percent and for 38 percent of the time their estimates were too high by 10 percent. [However, the] more reports were combined, the average of the estimates [the consensus earnings estimates] became more accurate." - Professor John Price

[Quote No.28150] Need Area: Money > Invest
"Buffett also places a lot of importance on return on capital. In fact, it may well be that he considers this more important than return on equity. For example, in the 1985 Annual Report of Berkshire Hathaway when he discusses how managers should be compensated, he does this in terms of return on capital: higher return on capital means higher compensation, lower return on capital means lower compensation. 'If the widget company consistently earned a superior return on capital ... during the CEOís reign, the praise for him may be well deserved,' wrote Buffett. 'But if return on capital was lackluster ... applause should be withheld.' [Possibly because improving return on equity is relatively easy to do simply by increasing debt and thereby leverage. The problem though is debt is a two edged sword and the more debt a company has the more it is in danger from interest rate rises and the inability to borrow more at favourable rates should there be a short term liquidity issue. Improving return on capital and assets however, requires real management skill.]" - Professor John Price

[Quote No.28151] Need Area: Money > Invest
"The second way [of three] to have more confidence in your earnings forecasts is to increase your understanding of the company in which you are investing [the others being one-preferring companies with stable economic performansce and three-leaving a margin for error]. At the 1998 annual meeting of Berkshire Hathaway, Warren Buffett said that they like ďhomey, Norman Rockwell types of companies.Ē Buffett only invests in companies within his ďcircle of competence.Ē To understand a company, you need to understand its products, its competition, and its earning power. One way to start this process is to put yourself in the position of an owner and ask yourself the questions: what do I produce, who are my competitors, who are my suppliers, who are my customers? Now read the reports, talk to people, use your imagination. Peter Lynch humorously promotes the same idea when he recommends that you donít invest in anything whose products you cannot draw with a crayon. He also recommends that you be able to give a one-minute talk on a company before you invest in it." - Professor John Price

[Quote No.28152] Need Area: Money > Invest
"Because Buffett only invests in securities that he thinks are completely safe, that is, have no risk, he discounts using the U.S. Treasury rate. At the 1998 annual meeting of Berkshire Hathaway, Buffett said, Donít worry about risk the way it is taught at Wharton. Risk is a go/no-go signal for usóif it has risk, we just donít go ahead. We donít discount the future cash flows at 9 percent or 10 percent; we use the U.S. treasury rate. We try to deal with things about which we are quite certain. You canít compensate for risk by using a high discount rate. (Price 1998) In other countries this would be the rate for government bonds or the interbank rate. It is the rate corresponding to a loan that is the closest to default-free for the country. On the surface, the use of the default-free rate is a major point of departure between Buffettís methods and standard valuation theory. Standard valuation theory requires that all discounting is done with respect to what is called the cost of equity. It consists of the risk free rate plus a risk premium that is calculated using beta. (All this is part of the Capital Asset Pricing Model.) However, Buffettís definition of risk does not involve the historical variability of the stock price. Rather it is based on the unpredictability of the amount of cash generated by the company. Buffett argues that he only invests in companies in which he can forecast on average the cash they are going to generate over the next 10 years or more. Given this is the case, then it is reasonable that he discounts these future cash flows with respect to the treasury rate. The risk premium is set at zero." - Professor John Price

"[If you donít know what you are doing, then diversification may be the best approach. But if you are going to do that, then, according to Buffett, you should go the whole way and put your money in an index fund. In this way you will outperform the majority of fund managers.] On the other hand, if you are know-something investor able to understand business economics and to find five to ten sensibly-priced companies that possess important long-term competitive advantages, conventional diversification makes no sense for you. It is apt to simply hurt your results and increase your risk. I cannot understand why an investor of that sort elects to put money into a business that is his 20th favorite rather than simply adding that money to his top choices ó the businesses that he understands best and that present the least risk, along with the greatest profit potential. [As Buffet once quipped, 'In the words of the prophet Mae West, 'Too much of a good thing can be wonderful.' ']" - Warren Buffett

[Quote No.28159] Need Area: Money > Invest
"Besides expecting the total share market to revert to its long term mean rate of return eventually to decide if as a whole it is undervalued and likely to boom or overvalued and likely to bust, there is the inverted risk adjusted interest rate and the market's average price to earnings ratio (pe). This is calculated by taking the risk-free rate of return for a bank deposit or government bond and adding 2 or 3 extra percentage points as a fair risk premium, because owning shares is riskier than a bank deposit, and then inverting that percentage and dividing the interest rate into what was previously the denominator, namely the 100. The number that you get is the roughly appropriate average pe that the market should be given the interest rate. If the market is higher it is overvalued and if lower it is undervalued. It is also important to consider whether interest rates are increasing or decreasing too and how this would effect the inverted risk adjusted interest rate. If interest rates are falling so businesses have lower costs of debt, when this rate is inverted it is possible to see that the appropriate pe ratio rises, which makes sense as people are happier to pay a higher pe because profits and earnings will soon be rising as costs fall and more people have more money to spend. Rising interest rates have the opposite effect of causing the pe to fall as soon there will be higher costs and less money being spent. For example if interest rates are 7 percent, add 3 percent as a risk premium to get 10 percent, invert and divide the 10 into 100 and the answer 10 is what the average market pe should be. If the interest rate is 3 percent, add 2 percent for a risk premium to get 5 percent, invert and divide 5 into 100 and you get 20 which would be the fair average pe for the market given the very low interest rate." - Seymour@imagi-natives.com

"One strong argument against the Efficient Market Theory of stock prices, which states that a stock's price always reflects the current knowledge about a stock is when market panics [severe busts] occur. These result in buyers reducing their buying and margin holders and short sellers selling into this vacuum driving the price down further and faster. This is a time when the knowledgeable investor with superior understanding of the intrinsic value of a company's share through an intimate knowledge of its business economics and prospects, which don't usually change as quickly as the price, can buy at undervalued prices. After the panic the market regains its composure and rebids the shares up to and often above their intrinsic price making a very quick profit for the more knowledgeable investor who kept his or her head while all around others were losing theirs. The key to that success was that the successful buyer assessed the share price from their surerior knowledge of the business value rather than following the crowd and the share price trend.

"[The highly successful share investor, Warren Buffett, emphasizes the importance of investing in businesses that you understand in order to minimize your risk and maximize your chance of success:] You donít have to be an expert on every company, or even many. You only have to be able to evaluate companies within your circle of competence. The size of that circle is not very important; knowing its boundaries, however, is vital." - Warren Buffett
Highly successful value investor and Chairman of Berkshire Hathaway. Quote is from the 1996 Annual Report of Berkshire Hathaway.

[Quote No.28180] Need Area: Money > Invest
"[If you have identified a company you would like to own but its price is still too high, perhaps you could just buy a few shares for now?]...by investing a portion of the money allocated for a particular company, many people find that this sharpens their motivation and ability to monitor and understand the performance of the company. It sets things up for the possibility of a more sizeable investment later on. Buffett does this. In a television interview in 1993 in Omaha he said that buys 100 shares of many companies. Small investment in companies that interest him ensure that he gets the company reports on time [and goes on learning about the company, its plans and key drivers] while waiting for the opportunity to make a major investment at the price he has settled on." - John Price
Mathematics professor and developer of the Conscious Investor software and website, based on Buffett-like value share investing principles.

[Quote No.28190] Need Area: Money > Invest
"One thing to keep in mind when buying a company's stock is the lifespan of its product. In other words, keep an eye on how often consumers have to buy replacements. If people have to buy your product only once, you are on a constant search for new customers. Unless, that is, you're satisfied with sporadic sales." - Christian Hill

[Quote No.28212] Need Area: Money > Invest
"Many investors swear by the 'efficient market theory' [EFT]. All it means is that through the magic of millions of investors [who are rational and informed at least in the theory] buying and selling stock every day, you get what you pay for. If a company is cheap, it's cheap for a reason. If it's expensive, it's expensive for a reason. I'm a dissenting member of the 'efficient market theory' club. First of all, the market runs as much on emotion as it does on logic. And extremes rule. Investors are either too pessimistic or too optimistic. Instead of the 'efficient market theory,' I'd call it the 'inefficient market theory.' The fact is, you hardly ever get what you pay for when you invest. You usually get too little or too much." - Andrew Gordon

[Quote No.28239] Need Area: Money > Invest
"Now [ex-Federal Reserve Chairman] Mr. Bernanke, who happily puts himself out there as the leading economic forecaster and wise man, also contends that bubbles canít be recognized until they burst. Thatís like saying you canít tell that your house is on fire just because smoke is billowing from the windows; you have to wait until it bursts into flame. The truth is, bubbles are easily recognizable well in advance of bursting, but we cannot know when they will burst." - Addison Wiggin

[Quote No.28251] Need Area: Money > Invest
"A speculator attempts to forecast what stock prices will do independent of the underlying economics of the business. [- due to the supply and demand of the stock alone. A value investor, on the other hand, attempts to value the underlying economics of the business and thereby determine an intrinsic value for the stock and then wait until the market price is below this with a margin of safety before buying.]" - Warren Buffett
Highly successful value share investor and Chairman of Berkshire Hathaway Inc.
