Great post I found. Also an update.

Here is a great post from oldschoolvalue.com, hope you enjoy.

I have just finished the annuals and quarterly reports from Chiquita, and Fresh Del Monte, Dole’s biggest competitors.

I am putting together a series of posts on those three companies.  Which one could be the best buy for a spot in the long term portion of my portfolio without the spin off possibility, or if any of them are good enough to fit that profile.

I have also started Competition Demystified and can tell I am going to learn a lot from it.  I can’t wait to get farther into it and start applying the principles to the stocks I research.

Quotes on my investing and life philosophy.

“You are neither right nor wrong because people agree with you.” Benjamin Graham

“All intelligent investing is value investing-to acquire more than you are paying for.  Investing is where you find a few good companies and then sit on your ass.” Charlie Munger

“The market is a no-called-strike game. You don’t have to swing at everything-you can wait for your pitch.” Warren Buffett

“In the short run, the market is a voting machine, but in the long run it is a weighing machine.” Benjamin Graham

“The important thing is not to stop questioning.  Curiosity has its own reason for existing.  One cannot help but be in awe when he contemplates the mysteries of eternity, of life, of the marvelous structure of reality.  It is enough if one tries merely to comprehend a little of this mystery every day.  Never lose a holy curiosity.” Albert Einstein

“Everything should be as simple as it is, but not simpler.” Albert Einstein

“I have no special talent. I am only passionately curious.” Albert Einstein

“Be greedy when others are fearful, and fearful when others are greedy.” Warren Buffett

“You miss 100% of the shots you don’t take.” Wayne Gretzky
