Episode 14 - “Information Arbitrage” and MicroCap Investing with Maj Soueidan, GeoInvesting.com

December 31, 2015

For this episode of the Planet MicroCap Podcast, I spoke with Maj Soueidan from GeoInvesting.com. I met Maj at a conference recently and we had a great conversation about this concept that I wanted to learn more about: “Information Arbitrage.” On the program, we’ve talked about the importance of doing your due diligence, which includes reading an issuer’s press releases, SEC Filings, etc…, including where to find all of this information, as well as why understanding this material to the best of your ability, can help you gain an edge when investing. In this interview, Maj stresses the importance of reacting to and finding public information before other market participants. In addition to learning more about “Information Arbitrage,” we also discuss his research techniques, the difference between value stocks and growth stocks, and of course, I ask for his advice for new MicroCap investors.

- Maj's research techniques when looking at MicroCap stocks

Episode 13 - MicroCap Investing in Canada PART 2 with Chip Maloney, Brandon Mackie and Philippe Belanger

December 10, 2015

For this episode of the Planet MicroCap Podcast, we’re picking up where we left off from my PART 1 conversation with Chip Maloney, frequent contributor to MicroCapClub.com, Brandon Mackie from Small Cap Discoveries and Philippe Belanger from Espacemc.com.

As I said last time, we covered a lot of information during our roundtable so I thought it would be best separate the interview into two parts. In part 2, we discuss whether the due diligence process is different when researching Canadian companies versus U.S. companies, speaking with management, their advice for aspiring MicroCap investors, and more.
