Steven L. Kiel:
Separate from performance results, I want to highlight a project in which you will likely have interest. My friend Tom Jacobs spearheaded a campaign to republish the works of Maurece Schiller. After a Kickstarter campaign and other financial contributions to get the project off the ground, Tom is on the verge of publishing the first of five Schiller books on special situation investing. I had not previously been aware of Schiller’s contribution to investment analysis and learned that his books, originally published more than 50 years ago, were the foundation for the style of investing that Arquitos has successfully employed.
Tom’s idea was to add modern case studies from a variety of investors in the reprints of the books. I am happily supporting Tom and am also contributing a case study for one of the books. You can find my case study on ALJ Regional Holdings below:
