Ep. 184 - Price Matters with Chris Bloomstran, President and CIO Semper Augustus Investments Group

July 21, 2021

For this episode of the Planet MicroCap Podcast, I spoke with Chris Bloomstran. He is the President and CIO of Semper Augustus Investments Group. Chris is an absolute legend in value investing circles and I'm really thankful for the privilege to speak with him, let alone him spending 2.5 hours with me answering questions. And not just any questions, your questions you sent in on Twitter. It was off the cuff, a lot of fun, and I'm really thrilled to share our conversation today.

Ep. 183 - Business is the Monetization of Life with Mark Jones, Fund Manager at Pragmatic Capital Management

Ep. 183 - Business is the Monetization of Life with Mark Jones, Fund Manager at Pragmatic Capital Management

July 14, 2021

For this episode of the Planet MicroCap Podcast, I spoke with Mark Jones. He is the Fund Manager at Pragmatic Capital Management. I recently came across Mark's interview with SumZero and, somehow, missed his fantastic interview on Toby's Acquirer's Podcast back in March 2019. I listened to both and thought this person needs to be on more shows to share his insights, and let's start here. I mean, he was talking about GameStop and AMC before it was in vogue. A true contrarian to the core and so excited to share our conversation. Not only that, I'm so stoked to announce Mark will be giving a Keynote Presentation at our upcoming virtual, the SNN Network Summer Virtual Event 2021.

Ep. 182 - Investing: Always Be a Student of the Game with Conor MacNeil, Owner of the Investment Talk Newsletter

Ep. 182 - Investing: Always Be a Student of the Game with Conor MacNeil, Owner of the Investment Talk Newsletter

July 7, 2021

For this episode of the Planet MicroCap Podcast, I spoke with Conor MacNeil. He is the Owner of the Investment Talk Newsletter and known as @InvestmentTalkk on Twitter. For a while, Conor was anonymous on Twitter, and only very recently changed up his marketing strategy. He has developed quite a following since starting his Twitter account in February 2020, and launched his newsletter in May 2020. What was really cool and encouraging about my chat with Conor is that despite being a young man, he gets whole-heartedly that with investing, one is always a student of the game. My impression is that that is why he's seeing the success he's had and will continue to do so.

Ep. 181 - Do Cult Companies Make Good Cult Stocks with Brandon Beylo, Host of the “Value Hive Podcast”

Ep. 181 - Do Cult Companies Make Good Cult Stocks with Brandon Beylo, Host of the “Value Hive Podcast”

June 30, 2021

For this episode of the Planet MicroCap Podcast, I spoke with Brandon Beylo. He is the Host of the Value Hive Podcast and Research Analyst at Macro Ops. I've known Brandon for a while now, and it was long overdue to have him on the show. He's incredibly passionate about investing and that comes through in all his endeavors via the podcast and his work at Macro Ops. As a guest on his show, I saw that firsthand in the prep Brandon does even for me, and I think he's a true asset to the space. We had a fun chat where we jam on his background, investing strategy, and specifically, on cult companies and whether they make good cult stocks.

For this episode of the Planet MicroCap Podcast, I spoke with Jeff Moore. He is a Full-time investor in both real estate and equities, and the Editor of Ragnar is a Pirate blog. I've been following Jeff for a long time now, and stoked to have him on the pod, and shout out to Richard Sosa for saying that Jeff has some great investing stories.

The Investors Roundtable #39: What Makes A Contrarian Investor?

The Investors Roundtable #39: What Makes A Contrarian Investor?

June 18, 2021

For this episode of The Investors Roundtable (#39), we have a jam packed all-star roster ready to discuss being a Contrarian Investor. I believe all successful investors are contrarians to one degree or another, however, having a contrarian mindset is easier said than done. We've talked about contrarianism on many episodes on Planet MicroCap and there's many ways to not just be a successful investor, but also be a successful contrarian investor. So, I've assembled some of the best of the best to chat about it.

Ep. 179 - Distressed Securities: Finding Joy in the Junk with Dominique Mielle, Author of “Damsel in Distressed: My Life in the Golden Age of Hedge Funds”

June 16, 2021

For this episode of the Planet MicroCap Podcast, I spoke with Dominique Mielle. She is the Author of the upcoming book, "Damsel in Distressed: My Life in the Golden Age of Hedge Funds", which will be coming out on September 7, 2021. Dominique's upcoming book is a memoir about her time working at Canyon Partners, which at the time was a small, little-known hedge fund, and over the span of two decades, she rose to the top of the firm as the only female partner and senior portfolio manager—in what became one of the largest hedge funds in the U.S. We have a great conversation about her time working at Canyon Partners, and all the lessons she learned along the way.

The Investors Roundtable #38: Rise in Commodities Prices - Supply / Demand Issue vs. Inflation?

The Investors Roundtable #38: Rise in Commodities Prices - Supply / Demand Issue vs. Inflation?

June 11, 2021

For this episode of The Investors Roundtable (#38), we chat the rise in commodities prices. Mainstream financial media outlets are now finally starting to talk about this phenomenon as it has been affecting all aspects of the economy. The goal here is to better understand why this is taking place - is it simply a supply / demand issue that'll be resolved once the demand lessons as the world continues to open up, is this due to rising inflation concerns, or is it something in between? Please enjoy!

Ep. 178 - “Steak and Sizzle” Investing with Thomas Braziel, Founder and CIO of 507 Capital

Ep. 178 - “Steak and Sizzle” Investing with Thomas Braziel, Founder and CIO of 507 Capital

June 9, 2021

For this episode of the Planet MicroCap Podcast, I spoke with Thomas Braziel. He is the Founder and CIO of 507 Capital. The MicroCap universe, believe or not, is not huge (Shocker, I know), but so many of our guests said I should meet Thomas Braziel, he looks at the weirdest of the weird, the most out there ideas. Luckily, Tom has joined me on several The Investors Roundtable episodes, and we're finally taking the time to highlight him on Planet MicroCap. We chat about why he's a big fan of the "Steak and Sizzle" style of investing, as well as many examples of how he's utilized this strategy.

Ep. 177 - Making Sense of All the Crypto Headlines and Their Impact with Frank Holmes, Chairman of HIVE Blockchain Technologies, CEO and CIO of U.S. Global Investors

Ep. 177 - Making Sense of All the Crypto Headlines and Their Impact with Frank Holmes, Chairman of HIVE Blockchain Technologies, CEO and CIO of U.S. Global Investors

June 2, 2021

For this episode of the Planet MicroCap Podcast, I spoke with Frank Holmes. He is the CEO and Chief Investment Officer at U.S. Global Investors, GROW on NASDAQ, and Chairman of the Board of HIVE Blockchain Technologies, HIVE on TSX Venture and HVBTF on the OTCQX. I've known and interviewed Frank for a long time now, so featuring him on the pod is long overdue. But the timing couldn't be better as Frank has been on the front lines of crypto and he needs to be fully up to date on all the macro events that could affect digital assets. We chat at length on all the biggest headlines in crypto, what they mean, as well as how the crypto volatility compares to his experience investing primarily in natural resources. We recorded this episode in two parts, the first ~50 minutes on May 12 and the rest on May 27 because there was so much that happened in crypto world in between.
