February 22, 2017

For this episode of Planet MicroCap Podcast, I spoke with Rupert Hargreaves, Editor of the Hidden Value Stocks Newsletter and Value Reporter at ValueWalk.com. Rupert’s website, ValueWalk.com, has a vast amount of information and resources related to Value Investing, including: investing book recommendations and stock screeners based on strategies put forth by well-known value investors, as well as interviews Rupert has conducted with well-known hedge fund and portfolio managers. One aspect I love about investing is the application of principles that were successful for one asset class and if they can be applied to another asset class. The goal for this episode is to learn more about some of the greatest investors of all time, resources available at ValueWalk.com, and Rupert’s favorite lessons he’s learned in his conversations with hedge fund and portfolio managers.

Ep. 37: Banking Sector, Investing Books and Articles with Nate Tobik, Founder/CEO, CompleteBankData.com and Author, Oddballstocks.com

February 8, 2017

For this episode of Planet MicroCap Podcast, I spoke with Nate Tobik, Founder/CEO of CompleteBankData.com and Author at Oddballstocks.com. I’d been following Nate’s blog for some time now and I reached out because one thing in particular that Nate covers on his blog that we haven’t discussed on here yet, is the banking sector. Also, I could relate to a lot of what Nate says in this interview, especially when we discuss reading investing books. It’s important not to feel discouraged when reading these books, rather, write down terms and phrases you don’t know, and look them up on Investopedia – that’s what I did. Quite frankly, I still do that. The goal for this episode is to learn more about the banking sector, not to get discouraged when first reading investing books and discuss a few investing phrases we’ve yet to cover until now.

- What about the banking sector is particularly interesting to Nate

- From the Oddballstocks.com blog – one that I read from February last year that I found interesting was, “Is screening completely worthless?” Nate's thoughts on this

- How he finds new investing ideas

- Why doesn't he use "Watch Lists"?

- What does the phrase “dead money” mean?
