The Investors Roundtable #28: Why are MicroCap Stocks Surging?

January 30, 2021

For this episode of The Investors Roundtable (#28), our panel chats about a topic I've been asked multiple times now. I even went on Fox Business to give my thoughts on this.

The Investors Roundtable #27: MicroCap Due Diligence in the Virtual World

The Investors Roundtable #27: MicroCap Due Diligence in the Virtual World

January 29, 2021

For this episode of The Investors Roundtable (#27), our panel chats about doing due diligence on MicroCap stocks in the virtual world. We wanted to highlight this because our panelists are very active going to many investor conference, both in-person and now virtual, because that's where they go for idea generation, and specifically doing as many 1x1 meetings as possible to assess management teams. So, we thought it would be fun to discuss what this new normal has been like: doing virtual 1x1s, has that changed their process, why virtual events have been way more efficient for them, and much more. Please enjoy!

Ep. 158 - I’m Just a Streamer, Stream My Life Away with Francisco Olivera, President of Arevilo Capital Management

January 27, 2021

For this episode of the Planet MicroCap Podcast, I spoke with Francisco Olivera. He is the President of Arevilo Capital Management. I had Francisco on a recent episode of The Investors Roundtable to discuss "The Future of Media and Streaming Services", and we thought it would be fun to have a full conversation all about streaming services. Look, I will find any excuse to do a podcast talking with colleagues about our favorite shows and podcasts, but despite thinking we would, we do get into discussing various business models, what's working, what's not and more.

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”

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.
