For a photography enthusiast, what's the worst feeling in the world? Imagine taking some of the most beautiful photos you'd ever taken, during your trip to the seaside. You'd gone scuba diving and captured stunning sea life. You'd shot some wonderful family memories and experiences. And all of a sudden, you drop your camera in the water... and lo and behold, you lose your camera and photos in one fell swoop. Annoying. I know this horrible feeling very well as this happened to me.
This may sound ridiculous, especially when talking about such a straightforward product, but for me, finding "Floatostuff"- a Waterproof Camera Float By Floatogear was JUST what I needed. If you're anything like me then you can not live without your camera by your side when you're out in nature ... not even for a day! I hate wasting the moment! Recently I had replaced my underwater digital camera and had arranged to visit the beach with some friends. However I was fearful about losing yet another expensive camera, not to mention the digital photos which you cannot replace.
Insurance is expensive and it doesn't replace the actual shots. But I needed to feel secure.
I found a simple but effective solution on Amazon.com- a bright yellow wrist lanyard that connected to your camera that kept the camera secure. I wasn't sure initially if it would be right but considering that I am a big fan of Amazon.com (love the fast shipping plus they have a really comforting money-back guarantee that makes sure you are always pleased with your purchase), I thought I would give them a try with this and wow did it turn out to be an excellent decision. Not only was I able to buy high quality waterproof camera floats for an excellent cost, but what really impressed me was that, unlike all the others out there that provided a similar type of product, Floatogear's one came with a 100% money back guarantee, came in a twin pack (so was excellent value) and had an eBook on the Top Ten Tips for the Best Underwater Shots FREE of cost!
They also had fantastic follow-up and customer service to make sure everything was perfect and I was entirely pleased. And all this while saving cash! Above all, it has given me something invaluable back in my capacity as a photographer - my confidence!
Maybe I just was stung too much by my previous experience, but I have genuinely never been so amazed with a item like this that completely rectifies the problem in such a way. If you are trying to find a high quality safety solution that won't cost a fortune and keep your valuables (including your keys!) secure then I encourage you to click the link below now and see for yourself. If you choose to try it out, let me know your thoughts, I am sure you will be more than impressed!

Do I need to put anything on it? Do I put it in the oven just as it is? Does it have to be cleaned? Is it really true I just have to put cookie dough straight on top of it?
Getting going with a Perfection Silicone Baking Mat is most likely the simplest process you will ever follow in the kitchen.
The first thing to do is take it out of the clear plastic sleeve it came in. You'll discover that the mat feels a bit 'sticky' or 'gummy'. This is how it is meant to feel.
You'll likewise discover that it is very wobbly and pliable, not stiff and firm as you could have anticipated. You can use your Perfection Silicone Baking Mat as it is directly on your oven racks if you are baking a couple of large products like a loaf of bread, or a pavlova or pizza. It's advised that you utilize a cookie sheet underneath your baking mat to offer your cookies support in the oven. It also makes it easier for you to get it out of the oven when your baking is completed.
So the second simple step is select a cookie sheet from your cabinet that is large enough to fit your Perfection Silicone Baking Mat so that it lies perfectly flat when you put it on top of your cookie sheet. You don't need to grease your cookie sheet. Simply put the baking mat directly on top of the clean cookie sheet and that's it! You're ready to put your cookie dough straight onto your mat and begin producing stunning home made cookies in a flash.
Absolutely nothing can be simpler! This cuts your preparation time to a matter of seconds.
And if this is not amazing enough, be prepared to be definitely pleased at how easy it is to clean up afterwards. Your cookie sheet will be perfectly clean and you just need to give your baking mat cookie sheet liner a quick rinse or wipe over. Bid farewell to uninspiring scrubbing and soaking forever!

Boy! That was a mouthful and I still didn't get to mention all of the details of this versatile boombox MP3 Player, and phone charger! Well, when you watch the video, if you haven't already done so, you can read reviews from several happy customers about other benefits of the MiniBoomer.
In fact, there was one recent review that brought up a use I hadn't even dreamed of - using the loud siren and flashing beacon to help rescuers find you underneath a collapsed building. Hurricanes, tornadoes and other disasters might leave you in such a situation. Anyway, I am sure I don't have to warn you not to tell them "I got it because it's good for you and can keep you safe." Play up the MP3 feature, the dual track stereo, and how it can be paired to any of their Bluetooth enabled devices allowing them to listen in any room of the house.

What exactly makes this one so special? First, it's got a clean, compact and attractive design and simply looks good in your automobile. Second, it gets the job done quickly. As mentioned, my other chargers took forever to recharge my cell phone or tablet. This one has two ports and can charge both phone and tablet at full speed and simultaneously. No more days when my phone is running out of juice when I need it a lot. This puppy keeps all my gadgets prepared and going strong. It's also got a nice blue LED light making it easy to see when it's dark. From design to operation it simply works. It's reasonably priced from Amazon with a money back guarantee for peace of mind.

"Price is what you pay, and value is what you get"
Even though this statement might seem overly simplistic for a person whose net worth is greater than several billion dollars, the Investment Committee would suggest that all investor memorize this phrase (perhaps even print out a copy and hang it on a wall).
For instance, let's say that we were to find an Armani sweater concealed in the racks at a discount retailer for 75% off the retail price, simply because there's a small hole within the fabric. We could purchase the sweater, fix the little hole, and then have a very nice sweater for a fraction of the price.
Comparable possibilities exist in equity markets, and value investing is predicated upon the concept that these markets overreact to negative information. In the example above, the Armani store overreacted to the small hole in a sweater and chose to dump it at an assumingly low price. Our savvy discount shopper realized the opportunity and purchased an asset that has been unfairly punished.
Stock prices often overreact in a similar manner and value investors who are able to see the opportunity and are patient enough to wait for a thesis to play out can realize substantial returns. The trick, on the other hand, is to take notice of the value as opposed to the price.
Value investors who make the mistake of concentrating on price alone often end up buying "value traps". These are stocks that screen cheap but are cheap for a reason. Let's say that the hole in the Armani sweater was swapped for a large discoloration on the back of a sleeve. Had our shopper not extensively evaluated the sweater, he would have bought something that would likely never be seen out in public.
To put it simply, value investors don't buy stocks because they are cheap, but rather for the reason that they signify a good value. Furthermore, their level of involvement will classify them into one of two types:
Passive: These investors buy value stocks and then wait for the value to be identified by the market. The Investment Committee employs a passive strategy with our investments.
Active: These investors see opportunity in stocks that they feel management is missing. They take an active role in the value creation and will frequently get aggressive if they feel that action is needed to get a company to change their ways.
Passive investing is relatively straightforward because it's not much more than a "buy and hold" strategy. On the other hand, active investing can be quite complex as well as highly aggressive at times.
Here's how it works:
The activist investor screens for undervalued companies and discovers exactly why a specific company is undervalued. If actions by management can make that value realized, they will acquire the stock. Some examples of potential management actions that can create value include spinning off subsidiaries or under performing divisions, using cash to buy back stock or paying a larger dividend, sell the company, etc.
NOTE: Most activist investors need considerable amounts of capital because they must purchase enough stock to be taken seriously. In most cases, an activist investor needs 5% or more of the shares outstanding to achieve the "muscle" necessary to fight with management.
Typically, the activist investor will meet with the management team of the company to make their case to unlock value within the enterprise. These conversations often go nowhere given a strong dislike towards change from management (think about the number of CEOs would welcome criticism from a third party party) or due to a fundamental disagreement on just how much value can be revealed.
If conversations with management are not constructive, then the activist investor will often publicly lobby the Board of Directors to adopt their proposed changes. The Board oversees company management and is established to serve in the best interest of shareholders. Thus, they have the ability to change managers and force some level of change when required.
If both the management team and Board resist an activist investor's idea(s), a "proxy fight" can arise. Essentially, the activist will lobby other large stockholders to attempt to get enough shareholder votes to force the Board to generate change. All in, the whole process could take years and require a tremendous amount of time, effort, and most of all patience.
To put it simply, the main difference between an active and passive investor is that although both strive to identify hidden value in a stock, an active investor will take part in unlocking that value whereas a passive investor leaves that job to the present management.
The Good, The Bad, & The Ugly
Activists are tenacious and will publicly fight with management for years when necessary. In fact, many will lobby government officials and even get litigious with Boards. Although many of their tactics may appear hostile, they serve a very important purpose in markets because managers realize that when they destroy shareholder value, activists will likely be there to step in and demand change.
For instance, the management team at Apple had been criticized for years over their exorbitantly large cash balance, which surpassed $150 billion at one point. Such a large cash balance sitting in the bank earns no interest, and financial theory states that if a company has no credible growth prospects they should give cash back to shareholders so they can redeploy that cash into better investments.
Even with shareholder frustrations, Apple was never the target of an activist until their stock fell from close to $800 down to $500 in a matter of months. The pressure on management continued to escalate to the point where two very well known activists, Carl Icahn and David Einhorn, got involved. Both investors are quite powerful on Wall Street and are savvy enough to know how to apply pressure to corporate management and Boards.
The end result has been a much more shareholder friendly Apple, where they now pay a strong dividend and have been buying back shares. The Investment Committee strongly agreed with the activists involved in Apple because the company was not acting in the best interest of shareholders who did not have as strong of a voice as Mr. Icahn.
Although this example with Apple shows the good in activists, there have been several scenarios where the bad, and even the ugly, has emerged. At the end of the day, activists are trying to make money and often their incentives are not aligned with the long-term health of a target company.
Activists have been known to fight to achieve short-term results that will cause only a temporary pop in the stock. The activist will then book a healthy profit by selling the stock with little regard to the long-term fundamental health of the company. Furthermore, activists tend to force managers to spend time and energy fighting them instead of dedicating their focus to running the business.
Implications for Investors
One of the most basic economic principles is that people are "self-interested". Meaning, our primary goal is to better our lives over the long run. Activists have clients that are paying them to grow their investment just as any investor would expect. Therefore, it's important to remember that these activists may make decisions that benefit their investors but hurt the shareholders of the companies they target.
Although activists may not always have their incentives aligned with their targets, they serve an important role in markets because they create a form of "checks and balances" with shareholders that are too small to have a voice. Managers who make repeated mistakes and destroy shareholder value should be held accountable, and if a Board is not acting in the best interest of its shareholders, then activists step in because they recognize value and will fight to unlock it.
The bottom line is that the Investment Committee applauds activists only when their efforts are intended to enhance the long-term benefit for the company and its shareholders.
