Howard Marks Interview, Laura Templeton, Intrinsic Value, Seth Klarman’s Investment Framework, Vitaliy Katsenelson, and the Value Investing Challenge

Now that I am done with the overview of my portfolio I can get back to the business of researching companies.  Up first though are some links that I think can help us all learn.

Free download of an interview with Howard Marks from Oaktree Capital.

Laura Templeton on How to Retain Conviction When The Market Goes Against You.  This is a three minute video with some very good insights for value investors.

Intrinsic Value: A Range, Not a Precise Figure is a great write up from Greg Speicher’s blog on the dangers of trying to pin down a companies exact valuation.

Seth Klarman’s Investment Framework is something every self respecting value investor should probably read.

Value Investing Challenge links to download the three finalists analysis and valuation articles.  The detail in the articles and how clearly two of them put forth their analysis is absolutely amazing and something I hope to learn from.  Possibly a few companies to do further research on as well.

Helmerich & Payne Analysis is a fantastic valuation and analysis article from Vitaliy Katsenelson at Contrarian Edge.  Again, pay attention to the amount of detail, how he thinks, and his process, absolutely amazing.

Now that I have finished up doing my portfolio overview I am going to dive right back into researching companies.  I will update you when I find something interesting, and I already have a few companies in mind to research.
