- Matt Ridley sets them straight in The Rational Optimist.
- The book was still a great learning experience for me because of the range of topics in which Ridley is able to tackle with seeming expertise.
- I think the book is a must-read for the chapter on climate change alone!

- The following company appeared on the screener and as I dove in to research I found what might be interesting from a debt but not equity perspective.
- A potential problem for hotel companies is they have high levels of operating leverage, and for Temple Hotels they piled on significant financial leverage as well.
- In the latest financial report the company stated that they are in breach of multiple covenants on a portion of their debt, but they expect to restructure the terms or pay off the offending debt.

At some point in the future will we look back at our actions today and refer to them as our greatest missed opportunity? A successful dividend growth strategy takes time. Unfortunately, many income investors don't have the luxury of time on their side and must focus on high-yield investments to meet current expenses. These high-yield investments are often accompanied by high-risk. For those with time, a solid long-term strategy focusing on quality stocks that grow their dividends will treat them well in their retirement years.

We evaluated 35 different companies this week to determine whether they are suitable for Defensive Investors, those unwilling to do substantial research, or Enterprising Investors, those who are willing to do such research. We also put each company through the ModernGraham valuation model based on Benjamin Graham's value investing formulas in order to determine an intrinsic value for each. Out of those 35 companies, only 18 were found to be undervalued or fairly valued and suitable for either Defensive or Enterprising Investors.

- Time spent researching a company not worth investing in means less time spent researching a potentially good investment.
- In some markets net-nets are attractive investments, other times low P/B value stocks, and at times companies that trade at earnings discounts to their peers.
- Spending time on what you own, or what you want to own that is qualified is much more valuable than spending time on something that isn't qualified.
