Tupperware circa 1999 – Broken Company or Golden Opportunity?

April 15, 2015 – Comments (0) | RELATED TICKERS: TUP

In his book The Education of a Value Investor, Guy Spier walks the reader through a handful of his less successful trades.  One of these trades – his late 1990s purchase (and subsequent capitulation) of Tupperware $TUP shares – struck a chord with me; I’m a current $TUP shareholder.  Naturally, I went back into the details of Tupperware to see if I was barking up the wrong tree.  [more]

Aligning my portfolio with the "Superinvestors" - Sitting on too much Oil

February 19, 2015 – Comments (2) | RELATED TICKERS: XOM , BP , LUKOY

Ever since I found the Dataroma/Superinvestors website about a year ago, I eagerly await each and every quarterly update to see who is buying and selling what.  The site tracks investors like Buffett, Gayner, Watsa, Mecham, Klarman, Pabrai, Marks, Ackman, Einhorn, Icahn, Munger, Pzena, and Chou.  The site provides holdings and changes for each manager, individually, and the site also compiles the superinvestors’ portfolios and tracks the “Grand Portfolio.”  It’s quite valuable for people that want to clone really good investors and get a sense of what the “whales” are doing.  I tend to have a lot of overlap with them collectively…mostly because I actively try to.  [more]
