Ep. 66 - Focus on Downside Risk and High Quality Businesses with Connor Haley, Managing Partner of Alta Fox Capital Management

May 22, 2018

For this episode of Planet MicroCap Podcast, I spoke with Connor Haley. He is the Founder and Managing Partner of Alta Fox Capital Management, a long/short hedge fund based in Fort Worth, Texas. Connor also is currently the #1 ranked investor on MicroCapClub.com. Having just launched Alta Fox this year, I thought this would be a great time to share his experience, why he started Alta Fox and his MicroCap investing philosophy.

As you will hear in this episode, Connor is very focused on understanding what his downside risk can be when assessing a potential investment, as well as making sure that it is a high quality business. These metrics are more of an art than a science, and the goal for this episode is understand how Connor breaks them down.

May 9, 2018

I’d like to first start off by thanking everyone who came to the Planet MicroCap Showcase 2018.

The goal for this episode is learn more about the TSX and TSX Venture exchanges and their place in the MicroCap ecosystem.

Ep. 62 - How Macroeconomic News Impacts MicroCap Stocks with Charles Payne, “Making Money with Charles Payne” and Wall Street Strategies

March 7, 2018

For this episode of Planet MicroCap Podcast, I spoke with Charles Payne. He is the Founder & CEO of Wall Street Strategies, and is featured on the Fox Business Network Monday-Friday at 6 PM ET on "Making Money with Charles Payne.” Charles is not only widely recognized in the media sphere as a thought leader on stock markets and politics, but is also the best-selling author of "Be Smart, Act Fast, Get Rich".

One question I’ve always had is how does macroeconomic news impact MicroCap stocks? Is there a direct correlation? I’ve had a few guests that would probably argue that it doesn’t, however, I thought Charles would be best suited to provide some clarity.

Mr. Payne’s program is a daily show where he gets to see how the news affects the market on a day-to-day, minute-by-minute basis, where he and his team do their best to help everyone navigate the infinite amount of information available. The goal for this episode is to try and answer the question of whether or not macroeconomic news has an impact on MicroCap stocks.

Ep. 61 - Case Studies on a Common Characteristic of Multi-bagger Stocks with Mike Schellinger, MicroCapClub.com

February 21, 2018

For this episode of Planet MicroCap Podcast, I caught up with Mike Schellinger. Mike is a full-time MicroCap investor, as well as Co-Owner of MicroCapClub. While my guests sometimes discuss a stock to support their investing thesis, we have yet to provide case studies about investing successes. I thought Mike would be the perfect person to talk about different case studies as he not only has the experience, but in past episodes he has noted about the importance of keeping track of companies that you have researched, not just companies you end up taking positions in. The goal for this episode is to drive home the importance of not only analyzing your failures, but understanding what led to your greatest successes, and why keeping careful notes is very, very helpful.

The mission of this podcast, as most of you know, is all about educating the next generation of investors about how to invest in MicroCap stocks.

January 10, 2018

For this episode of Planet MicroCap Podcast, I spoke with Jacob Ma-Weaver, Portfolio Manager at San Francisco-based investment advisor, Cable Car Capital.
