Chart of the Day -- Sallie Mae, Monthly Chart
SLM hit a new all-time high this week. I've done some business with Sallie, and was pleased that she didn't impose any pre-payment penalties; pre-payment risk is something that she doesn't usually have to worry about.

Oddball Investing, by James Boric (scroll down through the usual Daily Reckoning blather to find the story):
"[Ben Graham] looked for bargains - companies selling for 60% to 70% LESS than they were worth. And it just so happened that many of the small, illiquid companies Tweedy tracked fit Graham's 'value' model simply because they received no coverage on Wall Street and were undervalued.
Thanks to their shared investment strategy, Tweedy quickly became Graham's 'go-to' broker. And Graham became Tweedy's largest customer - so big that he moved his office right next to Graham's office on 52 Wall Street so they could work together more efficiently."
