Ep. 105 - Assessing Stock Performance with Probability and Not as Binary with Peter Rabover, Managing Director of Artko Capital

January 14, 2020

For this episode of the Planet MicroCap Podcast, I spoke with Peter Rabover, Managing Director at Artko Capital. I met Peter after following him on Twitter for a while – I became a fan of his commentary and insights on the market, and then reached out for him to be on the podcast. Some key highlights for me: learning more about his investing journey story, how he’s changed his approach over time and how poker has helped his investing philosophy.

Ep. 104 - Recapping Biotech and Healthcare in 2019 and What to Expect for 2020 with John Vandermosten, Senior Biotech Analyst at Zack’s Small-Cap Research

January 1, 2020

For this episode of the Planet MicroCap Podcast, I spoke with John Vandermosten, Senior Biotech Analyst at Zack’s Small-Cap Research. I met John recently at a conference in Austin, where we did a brief interview for the SNN Network YouTube Channel to discuss how to simplify the biotech valuation process, gene therapy and trends in biotech. I really enjoyed our chat then, and invited John back on to do a full wrap on 2019, as well as some trends he finds interesting for 2020.

Ep. 103 - Catching up with OTC Markets and Addressing Critical Issues to MicroCap Ecosystem with Cromwell Coulson, CEO of OTC Markets Group, Inc.

Ep. 103 - Catching up with OTC Markets and Addressing Critical Issues to MicroCap Ecosystem with Cromwell Coulson, CEO of OTC Markets Group, Inc.

December 17, 2019

For this episode of the Planet MicroCap Podcast, I spoke with Cromwell Coulson, CEO of OTC Markets Group, Inc., a publicly-traded company, OTCM on the OTCQX. I originally spoke with Cromwell on the podcast in Episode 25. During that episode, we discussed his background, history of OTC Markets, but we focused quite heavily on Reg A+. At that time, August 2016, the JOBS Act rules had just gone into effect in May 2016, and OTC was, and still is, an integral part of that new ecosystem. However, I invited Mr. Coulson back on for a couple reasons:

1. I think its important for the MicroCap community to hear from Cromwell and get his latest insights on critical issues that affect our space

2. I’ve spoken with many investors both on here, at events, etc…, and wanted to take this opportunity to ask Cromwell some questions that other investors want to know from him

3. To get an update on what OTC Markets is doing to create a transparent, connected and open marketplace

Ep. 102 - SEC Wants to Stop Trading in Dark Stocks with Dan Schum, NoNameStocks.com

Ep. 102 - SEC Wants to Stop Trading in Dark Stocks with Dan Schum, NoNameStocks.com

December 11, 2019

For this episode of the Planet MicroCap Podcast, I’m sharing with you an interview I did with Dan Schum, Editor of NoNameStocks.com. We recorded and I shared our chat on our YouTube Channel back in mid-October, and I have a couple reasons I wanted to share the interview on here: 

  1. I really enjoyed my conversation with Dan and learning about his investing thesis, particularly how he’s been successful investing in Dark Stocks
  2. The article he wrote, which inspired the title of our interview, “SEC Wants to Stop Trading in Dark Stocks”, is still a very active conversation going on where you can share your comments with the SEC
  3. I have a very special episode that I’ll be sharing with you next week with Cromwell Coulson, CEO of OTC Markets Group, where we'll address some of the issues Dan and I discuss here, as well as many other hot topic questions I know most of you would like to ask him yourselves.

Ep. 101 - Value Investing: Looking for the Overlooked with Geoff Gannon, Co-Founder and Portfolio Manager at Focused Compounding

November 26, 2019

For this episode of the Planet MicroCap Podcast, I spoke with Geoff Gannon, Co-Founder and Portfolio Manager at Focused Compounding. You might also recognize Geoff from the very popular investing podcast, Focused Compounding, which he co-hosts with his partner, Andrew Kuhn. I’m a big fan of their work, and I invited on Geoff to share his background and to chat about his investing philosophy. We recorded this interview back in September, so keep that in mind when you hear us discuss the news about Willow Oak Asset Management and Focused Compounding to jointly launch a new private investment fund.

Ep. 98 - Intelligent Fanatics of India and Finding Inefficiencies with Rohith Potti, Co-Author of “Intelligent Fanatics of India”

October 16, 2019

For this episode of the Planet MicroCap Podcast, I spoke with Rohith Potti, Co-Author of the upcoming, “Intelligent Fanatics of India.” This was very exciting for me – not only as a fan of “Intelligent Fanatics” series, but its covering a part of the world that I’ve had little exposure too. While I’ve interviewed some well-known Indian investors on here, Professor Bakshi and Gautum Baid, I’m looking forward to reading about some of the best entrepreneurs that have built successful businesses in India. Now, to guide us through this journey is my guest today, Rohith Potti. I had the opportunity to interview Rohith at the MicroCapClub Leadership Summit in Chicago a couple weeks ago, where we discussed Rohith’s background, his inspirations and he gave some snippets to what you can expect in the latest edition of Intelligent Fanatics. Thank you Ian Cassel and Sean Iddings for helping set this up, and for hosting another great event – I highly recommend everyone try and attend in 2020.

Ep. 97 - MicroCap Value Destruction: An Antidote with Adam J. Epstein, Founder of Third Creek Advisors, LLC

Ep. 97 - MicroCap Value Destruction: An Antidote with Adam J. Epstein, Founder of Third Creek Advisors, LLC

October 2, 2019

For this episode of the Planet MicroCap Podcast, I caught up with Adam Epstein, Founder of Third Creek Advisors, LLC. I previously had Adam on the podcast for Episode 22, where we discussed the importance of paying attention to corporate governance. Since then, a new platform has been launched, called, “Small Cap Institute”, whose ecosystem, as it states on their website, “is designed to elevate objective, differentiated education and transformative peer exchange, and empower small cap leaders to avoid value-destructive advice.” Founded by David Scher, who, as it states on their website, “occupies a unique vantage point from which to understand at a granular level which issues are most troubling to small-cap CEOs and Boards.” Most of you know David from his work at LD Micro with Chris Lahiji, and Adam Epstein joined Small Cap Institute’s advisory board to support and help David execute the mission and problem SCI is trying to solve – a potential antidote to MicroCap value destruction.

Ep. 96 - Classic Growth Theory of Investing and How to Prepare for a Downturn in the Market with Gerry Frigon, Founder and CIO of Taylor Frigon Capital Management

September 18, 2019

For this episode of the Planet MicroCap Podcast, I spoke with Gerry Frigon, Founder and CIO of Taylor Frigon Capital Management. At the beginning of September, when we recorded this interview, mainstream media outlets have been discussing the affect trade wars, interest rates, and all sorts of potential catalysts for downturns in the market. I thought it would be important to discuss investing strategies in the event of downturns in the market. I was introduced to Gerry Frigon very recently, and thought he would provide interesting takes on current market conditions, how he and his firm would tackle downturns in the market, and to learn more about Taylor Frigon Capital Management’s investment philosophy.
