How to spot great companies?

Jun 23, 2014

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

Investing like Warren Buffet
When we discuss or talk about equity markets or investing in equity, most us would like to replicate the way or strategies of Warren Buffet. An article on Forbes, discusses about who could be the "next Warren Buffet"? While these types of predictions can just go haywire, yet the article discusses about a money manager, who seems to have done an outstanding job. Read on to know more about him.. (Forbes)

How to spot great companies?
Today's saplings are tomorrow's trees. In other words, every small company has potential to make it big. But eventually not all start ups become Infosys. So, how does one spot the Infosys' of future? Well, this article succinctly highlights the art of identifying great companies. Read on to find out more about it. (The Motley Fool)

Reading the warning signs when a country fails
History is the witness that over thousands of years; change has been the only constant. Few years back, China was supposed to be the growth engine of global economy until it slowed down, messed up in a multitude of problems. Before the financial crisis in 2008 took place, not many would have predicted the fate of US and its impact on global economy. In the times of economic coupling when fall of one economy drags along many others, wouldn't it be nice if one can detect the signs of economic failure at an early stage, so that the damage can be minimized. This interesting article attempts to do the same. Read on for further details… (Zero Hedge)

Is investing an art, science or something else entirely?
This is a question that many would have pondered over. But when asked to some of the big names in the business, the reactions are quite different. We would however think more in lines of Mr. Peter Lynch who had said "As I look back on it now, it's obvious that studying history and philosophy was much better preparation for the stock market than, say, studying statistics. Investing in stocks is an art, not a science, and people who've been trained to rigidly quantify everything have a big disadvantage. If stock picking could be quantified, you could rent time on the nearest Cray computer and make a fortune. But it doesn't work that way. All the math you need in the stock market you get in the fourth grade". Nevertheless, read on to know what are the thoughts of Mr. Seth Klarman and Mr. John Bogle on this matter...
