As a long time reader of my newsletters you know I would be surprised if I was your only source of investment advice.

In today’s newsletter I want to introduce you to one of my best sources of continuous learning about investment. And show you how you can get your hands on valuable information I have been paying for since 2006 for free.

But first something about the source.

It’s a US based investment newsletter published jointly by a friend and successful hedgefund manager Whitney Tilson and his partner John Heins.

I have been a subscriber since shortly after they started publishing the newsletter in 2005.

I read the newsletter not so much for the investment ideas, I can find those myself, but mainly for the valuable insights gained from their interviews with other successful investors.

The newsletter is called the Value Investor Insight

Go and have a look at their website and ask for a free trial copy, John will be happy to send you one.



Now for the free information.

Whitney and John have been kind enough to put together a collection of wisdom gained from 46 issues of their newsletter.

These insights are contained in a 43 page document called Words of investing wisdom available for download for free from their website.

The insights are grouped under the following main headings:

  • Finding an Edge

  • Field of Play

  • Uncovering Value

  • Research and Analysis

  • Portfolio Management

  • Learning Curve

  • Of Sound Mind

  • The Craft of Investing
