...31 October 2014 Monthly Report Now In. We eked out a small gain in a somewhat up market this month. (Yes, it would indeed be hard to come up with a gain smaller than a penny.) Marketwatch looks backward once again to the previous quarter, in which we again "won" the Wall Street Journal's "Winner's Circle" contest. Hope you all take as much pride in that as does your manager. "Focus" looks in on a sore point in the portfolio. (We don't hide from our troubles.) "Snippets" is the usual flotsam of positive and negative events. Enjoy.
Short Term - Long Term / How We Stack Up

The links given here take you to a thorough look at our performance record. Check out our Lifetime section (38 years and counting) where a year-by-year graphical picture and a month-to-month data table are both provided. At the top of the data table is a listing of pre-tax rates of return over selected periods to the present, plus explanatory notes. For current performance details and commentary, see our most Recent Monthly report and our most Recent Annual report. The Archive contains past monthly and annual reports.
Reportage and Discussion

The Snippets section relates brief news items about our individual portfolio holdings. The emphasis is on bare facts rather than interpretation.

Each Focus item gives an expanded discussion of one of our portfolio holdings.

Marketwatch is reserved for discussion of particular happenings and issues of general interest to investors.

Fast-breaking items are posted under Hot Alerts.

Reminiscence is the managing partner's musings and lessons learned from nearly four decades in the business.

Everything eventually ends up in the Archive, so we can't ever deny we said it.
