Ep. 157 - With Poker and Investing, Know the Game Your Playing and Master Your Strategy with Annie Duke, Author of “How to Decide: Simple Tools for Making Better Choices”

January 20, 2021

I'm very excited for this episode. As you see in the title, my guest today is Annie Duke. One of my earliest memories of watching sports, believe or not, was watching the 2003 and 2004 World Series of Poker. Seeing legends like Chris Moneymaker and Greg Raymer win the title, then all the tournaments in between, was so cool, and all I wanted to do was play poker. Another stand out amongst the greats playing these now televised events was, you guessed it, Annie Duke.

Since retiring from the game in 2012, Annie is an author, corporate speaker, and consultant in the decision-making space. Annie’s latest book, How to Decide: Simple Tools for Making Better Choices, was released in the fall of 2020 from Portfolio, a Penguin Random House imprint. Her previous book, Thinking in Bets, is a national bestseller. As a former professional poker player, she has won more than $4 million in tournament poker. During her career, Annie won a World Series of Poker bracelet and is the only woman to have won the World Series of Poker Tournament of Champions and the NBC National Poker Heads-Up Championship.

Prior to becoming a professional poker player, Annie was awarded a National Science Foundation Fellowship to study Cognitive Psychology at the University of Pennsylvania. Annie is the co-founder of The Alliance for Decision Education, a non-profit whose mission is to improve lives by empowering students through decision skills education. She is also a member of the National Board of After-School All-Stars and the Board of Directors of the Franklin Institute. In 2020, she joined the board of the Renew Democracy Initiative. Long story short, she's incredible, and I'm still wrapping my head around what I learned from speaking with her.

Ep. 156 - Howard Jonas: One of the Best Investors You’ve Never Heard of with Joe Boskovich, Co-Founder and Partner at Old West Investment Management

Ep. 156 - Howard Jonas: One of the Best Investors You’ve Never Heard of with Joe Boskovich, Co-Founder and Partner at Old West Investment Management

January 13, 2021

For this episode of the Planet MicroCap Podcast, I spoke with Joe Boskovich. He is the Founder and Co-Partner of Old West Investment Management. We did an interview for the SNN YouTube Channel, where we dive deep into Joe's investment strategy, so I invite you all to check that out. Joe recently published a write-up on Howard Jonas, an investor who has built a billion dollar empire, who, according to Joe's write-up, "founded IDT Corporation in 1990 as a provider of a call re-origination service. He took his company public in 1996 and built it to the point where today it generates $1.5 billion in revenue per year from the sale of communications and payment services. IDT has also been incredibly successful at creating value for its shareholders by using the cash flows from its core business to fund a wide array of growth initiatives. In the past decade IDT has spun-off 5 public companies and sold a 6th after which it provided a special dividend to shareholders." Howard is one the best microcap investors, founder, CEO, capital allocators you've never heard of, and Joe has done a ton of work and due diligence on all his businesses.

The Investors Roundtable #21: Understanding COVID-19 Vaccine Trial Results, Investing in Healthcare

January 11, 2021

In this Episode of The Investors Roundtable (Episode 21!), our topic we discuss is: “COVID-19 Vaccine Trial Results and Investing in Healthcare". With the recent clinical trials results from Pfizer and Moderna on COVID vaccines, I thought this would be a great opportunity to put these results into some sort of context, as well as ignite an important discussion on how to evaluate the healthcare and life sciences industry as an investor.

Ep. 154 - Roku Thesis, Betting on Kambi and the Pains of Being a Mets, Jets, Islanders Fan with Elliot Turner, Managing Partner, CIO of RGA Investment Advisors

December 30, 2020

For this episode of the Planet MicroCap Podcast, I spoke with Elliot Turner. He is the Managing Partner and CIO of RGA Investment Advisors. I'd been following Elliot on Twitter for a long time, and finally worked up the courage to ask him on. Elliot is currently a co-host on MOI Global's, "This Week in Intelligent Investing" podcast, a great show that I highly recommend, where he shares his insights and investing thesis on a pretty regular basis. So, for today's episode, we chatted about things we find interesting: streaming wars, sports betting, and most importantly, New York sports. We happen to represent opposite sides of the New York sports fan spectrum, and support each other through this difficult time as a NY sports fan. I had a great time, and you will enjoy Elliot's in-depth look at Roku and Kambi.

The Investors Roundtable #20: Streaming Services and the Future of Media

The Investors Roundtable #20: Streaming Services and the Future of Media

December 26, 2020

For this episode of the The Investors Roundtable, our topic is "Streaming Services and the Future of Media." This roundtable was inspired by Activist Investor Dan Loeb's letter on Why Disney Needs to Double Its Streaming Spending, and Chris Bloomstran's letter offering a counterpoint. We're still in the very early innings of the streaming era, and new technological advancements opens the doors to discussions like this about where current firms are positioned, how streaming/technology has changed the media landscape, as well as where could we be headed. A lot of familiar names are chatted about on here, and stay tuned until the very end to hear everyone's first snail-mail Netflix rental, Red Box and Blockbuster rental. Please enjoy!

The Investors Roundtable #19: What Are Compounders and How Do We Find Them?

December 25, 2020

For this episode of the The Investors Roundtable, our topic is trying to define “What are Compounders and How Do We Find them?” There’s been a thread on Twitter going around on a firm claiming to have created the term - I figured we should do an episode to demonstrate that a definition of “Compounder” may not be as straightforward as you might think. Please enjoy!
