Ep. 91 - So you want to be an Activist Investor? with Jeff Gramm, Bandera Partners and Author of “Dear Chairman”

July 10, 2019

For this episode of the Planet MicroCap Podcast, I caught up with Jeff Gramm, Author of “Dear Chairman”. In our first interview on the podcast, Episode 40, we dissect his book, “Dear Chairman” - chapter by chapter. During that interview, we talk about the history and rise of shareholder activism, how it has evolved in the last 100 years, the difference between shareholder activism in large caps and microcaps, and much more. I invited Jeff back because I’ve been wanting to do an episode similar to ones I’ve done with Ian Cassel and Mike Schellinger about the life of a full-time MicroCap investor, but for this episode – the life of an activist investor and the best practices for those of you that may be interested in wanting to be an activist. The goal for this episode is to try and answer the question: so you want to be an activist investor?
