For this episode of the Planet MicroCap Podcast, I spoke with Scott Felsenthal and Todd Massedge to discuss their project, WhyMicroCaps.com. Since speaking with Scott on Episode 10, he has partnered up with Todd to create WhyMicroCaps.com to, as they say, “do their part in helping to bridge the gap between the reality and the perception of microcaps.” The goal for this podcast is to answer the question Why MicroCaps, and then discuss a few of their educational articles featured on their blog roll.

Episode 35 - Investing Pitfalls to Avoid, Searching for Gold in SEC Filings and 2017 with Mike Schellinger, MicroCapClub.com

January 11, 2017

For this episode of Planet MicroCap Podcast, I caught up with my guest from Episode 11, Mike Schellinger from MicroCapClub.com. When we first spoke, we discussed his life as a full-time MicroCap investor, as well as his approach to MicroCap investing. In this interview, I wanted to get his insight on 2017 – trends to look out for this year and how the recent election may affect the MicroCap space. But more importantly, he’s one the main contributors to MicroCapClub.com, and he wrote two articles that I wanted to cover at length in this interview: “Investing Pitfalls to Avoid,” and “Searching for Gold in SEC Filings”. The goal for this episode is to learn about what Mike believes investors should look out for when looking at MicroCap stocks, as well as how he finds “gold” in SEC Filings and what that means.
