A true long-term perspective on their investments. Discussion of Evolution and why it hampers long-term thinking. Discussion of behavioral biases that hamper successful long-term active investing. Power Point illustrations. Successful active investors value process over outcome. Short-term focus of investors is killing returns. Why you need access to truly long-term data to make intelligent choice. Successful active investors generally ignore forecasts and predictions. Discussion of studies proving forecasts and predictions are virtually worthless; illustrations documenting the failure of forecasts; both within markets and in outside professions. Successful active investors are patient and persistent. Discussion of great investors who may have very different styles, but all share the trait of patience and persistence. Successful active investors have a strong mental attitude. Successful investors are made, not born. Discussion of how successful active investors have a mental attitude bordering on stoicism; how they control how they interpret the world.

John Heins and Whitney Tilson, co-founders of the Value Investor Insight newsletter, have done a thorough job of explaining how to look for stocks that are trading at significant discounts to what they are worth — the concept known as the value style of investing.…the authors present a clear framework for ferreting out undervalued companies.” —The New York Times About the book: In The Art of Value Investing, John Heins and Whitney Tilson offer a comprehensive set of answers to the questions that everyone investing seriously in the stock market should have thought through clearly before committing his or her hard-earned capital to the endeavor. What market efficiencies will I try to exploit? What analytical edge can I hope to have? How specifically will I decide to buy or sell? For answers, they call on market-beating money managers – including such investing luminaries as Seth Klarman, David Einhorn, Bill Ackman, Howard Marks, Mason Hawkins and Julian Robertson – who have graced the pages over the past ten years of their highly regarded newsletter, Value Investor Insight. To illustrate one of the equity investor’s most important tasks – how to value a company – they will present a particularly relevant current case study … on Google. About the authors: John Heins is the co-founder and President of Value Investor Media, Inc. and Editor-in-Chief of Value Investor Insight and SuperInvestor Insight. Previously, he served as CEO of Bertelsmann AG’s U.S. magazine subsidiary, ran AOL’s Personal Finance business and was a reporter and staff writer for Forbes magazine. He holds a bachelor’s degree in Economics from the University of Pennsylvania’s Wharton School and earned an M.B.A. from Stanford University. Whitney Tilson is the co-founder and Chairman of Value Investor Media, Inc. and founder of Kase Capital, which manages value-oriented private investment partnerships. Prior to launching his investment-management career in 1999, he co-founded with Harvard Business School Professor Michael Porter the Initiative for a Competitive inner City, was a consultant at The Boston Consulting Group and was a founding member of Teach for America. He holds a bachelor’s degree in Government and an M.B.A., both from Harvard University.

Do you have a business idea? http://clufflaw.com/preparing-to-talk-with-investors-about-your-business/ Start Transcript: One of the important things to do in an investment relationship is to get it started the right way. I already talked about the importance of having a full and frank discussion with all of the parties that are going to be involved. What are the expectations? What are the potential problems? What are we going to do if these kinds of problems arise? I would actually suggest before you have that conversation, even though it needs to be right up near the beginning of your to-do list, even before that you need to talk to a trusted advisor about what are some of the specific issues that you ought to be discussing with your friends or family so that you can have a full and frank discussion. I have found that one of the real barriers for people in getting going in their business is they don't know what to do to get started. They have this idea for their business and they may have way more than an idea. They may have some processes in place. They may have a tremendous amount of skill. They may have sales that are ready to go. They may have a lot of things in place, but they really don't know how to approach the investors that they're going to need to get the business off the ground. That will actually just kill some deals. Many, many deals stay right there in that stage, the idea stage. It's helpful to go and talk to an attorney and explain what your idea is, what you're trying to accomplish, what you think some of your potential investment capital sources are, how you are going to approach those sources, what are the things you need to discuss with them, what is your agreement going to look like. It makes all the difference in the world when you're going to speak to an investment capital prospect as to whether you're prepared, whether you have your ducks in a row, so to speak. If you show up for the meeting with the big investor and all you've got is an idea and no structure, it's not going to be a very attractive investment opportunity for that investor usually. If, on the other hand, you have a plan that you're ready to execute, that includes an operating agreement for your LLC, something that's going to provide for your investor to get a return of their capital, maybe on a preferred basis to money that you would be receiving from your business. If you've thought those kinds of things out, that eliminates a lot of the noise in the investor's head which will contribute to concern in the investor's mind. There's just a huge benefit to having worked through those kinds of details right at the very beginning of your investment capital raising efforts.

The goal: to become richer, wiser, and happier. William has written for many publications, including Time, The New Yorker, Fortune, Forbes, Barron's, Money, Worth, Bloomberg Markets, and The Economist. He was the Editor of the European, Middle Eastern, African, and Asian editions of Time. As a co-author, he worked closely with Guy Spier, helping him to write his memoir, The Education of a Value Investor. William has interviewed many remarkable investors, such as Sir John Templeton, Joel Greenblatt, Howard Marks, Bill Ackman, Seth Klarman, Bill Miller, Tom Russo, Marty Whitman, Bill Nygren, Donald Yacktman, Mohnish Pabrai, Jean-Marie Eveillard, Peter Lynch, Bill Ruane, and Michael Price.

I'm Alex Villarreal with the VOA Special English Economics Report, from http://voaspecialenglish.com | http://facebook.com/voalearningenglish Facebook is the world's biggest social network -- and the subject of the movie "The Social Network."The real Mark Zuckerberg and his friends at Harvard University launched the site in two thousand four. Facebook says it reached five hundred million users last July.Now, the American bank Goldman Sachs and the Russian company Digital Sky Technologies have friended Facebook. They are investing a total of five hundred million dollars in the company. The deal values Facebook at fifty billion dollars -- more than many publicly traded Internet companies. Goldman Sachs is expected to raise a billion and a half dollars more by selling shares of ownership in Facebook to rich investors. The plan does not include a public stock offering -- at least not right now. For now, Facebook would remain a private company -- meaning a company that does not sell shares to the public. The plan has brought new attention to the largely secretive world of private financing and the rules for private companies in the United States.The idea is that investors in public companies have protections that investors in private companies do not. The Securities and Exchange Commission says a private company must report financial information if it has more than five hundred shareholders. A new business, a startup company, is usually considered too risky for average investors. But a promising startup may find a small number of private investors, often known as "angels." These investors are willing to lose everything for a chance at big returns.Rikki Tahta has been involved in raising money for startups. He is now chairman of his own investment company, Covestor, with offices in New York and London.Mister Tahta compares the difference between public and private companies to the difference between marriage and dating. When people are dating, he says, there are understandings but few rules. In marriage, the rules are more clear and well-defined.In his opinion, the only real benefit for a private company is lower administrative and record-keeping costs. Yet he tells us Covestor remains a private company after a few years because it is still too risky for most investors.For VOA Special English I'm Alex Villarreal.
