Jeff Yastine recently wrote an article on the topic of value investing on Wall Street. He introduces his readers to the two types of stocks that you can invest in, you have value investents and those that are merely value traps. He explains these two by using the examples of Fairholme and Sears. Bruce Berkowitz founded Fairholme with assets worth $20 billion. Because of bad investments and value traps, his fund is worth only $2 billion. His most well known investment was on Sears Holding. Sears shares were only worth $90 per share, according to Jeff Yastine and Berkowitz. Over time that changed, in matter of a short time, the share value started to fall dramatically. Sears is no longer in the black and now operating on losses.
