Writers/Bloggers Wanted

Value Investing News is expanding to provide exclusive feature articles. We are looking for a few good writers that are value investors interested in sharing their analysis with the world.

USG value trap or Bargain

USG at 36 dollars per share is a great "speculative" investment at these levels. Buffett bought in last summer at 46 and who in the world knows more about compounding their money than the 200 billion dollar man. This is abet on the "jockeys" and not the horse. Company insiders and a German company who own at least 10% have been recent buyers and that with the recent price drop have made these shares a GREAT long term investment. My advice is to buy at 36 and average down if the stock breaks below 30.

HNR -- Harvest Natural Resources Inc

Here is my take on HNR. If it is anything like my usual analysis, it is full of holes and errors, so do your own due diligence and reach your own conclusions. I previously posted this at www.gurufocus.com but thought it was worth sharing here as well.

Value in New Zealand?

I heard this fund manager on bloomberg or CNBC said he was finding growth companies at really low pe's in New Zealand even after this run-up. I could only find one etf of mostly Australian, 1 NZ company. the etf had a pe of about 6 and dividend yield of 7 or 8.

IE 6 Sidebar Bug Squashed and Other Visual Enhancements

I noticed that the right sidebar was dropping below the content when using Internet Explorer 6. It took me forever to isolate and discover a cure for the ailment, but it's now finally done. Hurray!

I've also started to tweak the typogragh and other stylistic components of the site. Hopefully, VIN will be even better looking than ever after I finish tweaking the details.

I've started to notice quite a few professionals using LinkedIn for professional networking. I thought it might be a good idea to get members of Value Investing News "LinkedIn".

Subscribing to Post Comments?

George,

This may already be possible, but is there a way to subscribe, by email, to commentary on a story or responses on a forum post?

I think I would make discussion much easier if we could track favourite topics.

Cheers.
