Ep. 135 - Many Levels to Being a Contrarian Investor with Ben Claremon, Cove Street Capital

August 19, 2020

For this episode of the Planet MicroCap Podcast, I spoke with Ben Claremon, Principal, Portfolio Manager and Research Analyst at Cove Street Capital. Quick side note, I’ve met more LA-based investors during COVID-19 than before - definitely in-person happy hour once things normalize a bit. This was a fun chat with Ben, where we really dig in to the many levels of being a contrarian investor. Value investors, for the most part, are natural contrarians looking for great deals in the market. Trying to find ways to understand what the market doesn’t love and why, makes for a good conversation.
