Time for EMs to wake-up to reality
May 8, 2014

Here is today's recommended reading list from Equitymaster...

Books that Buffett, Munger and Bill Gates are reading
Want to know what is going through the minds of the richest and most successful people out there? Well, what better way to know this than finding out the books they are reading. And if the people in question happen to be none other than Warren Buffett, Charlie Munger and Bill Gates, you better take a serious note of it. So here's a peek into the books these guys are finding unputdownable at the moment. (Business Insider)

A perfect investing approach for current times
There has not been much optimism regarding the global macroeconomic prospects. China's debt, US's fiscal problem, Ukraine crisis or European mess, there is always one or the other challenge haunting the economy.

However, with patience and discipline, a bottom-up approach can yield good returns in the long term. After all value investors favor the bottom-up investing approach.

Know your moat
As value investors, we often are in search of companies that have a competitive edge over their peers. As such, we are in search of sustainable moats that companies enjoy. But as the author of this article points out quite interestingly, the same approach could be applied to investors as well. As you know, value investing is a small segment in the overall topic of investments, and within this, there are quite a lot of styles and approaches that people take. While the aim is to outperform majority of investors, identifying one's moat is what is essentially required. Read on to know more about this interesting topic. (Guru Focus)

Time for EMs to wake-up to reality
What's gone so awry with emerging markets (EMs)? Have the root causes of the problems in emerging markets being overlooked? Have the fallacies been taken notice off and acknowledged? If the answer is NO, then it's high time that the emerging nations should stop complaining and rather get to basics. And that's exactly what the article here highlights. This interesting piece also emphasizes the fact that the fragility of emerging nations today is their overdependence on the external economic supporters at the cost of domestic economic health. To know more in detail about this, click on the link below picked from seekingalpha.com that quite satirically deciphers a different perspective towards the state of affairs in emerging nations today.
