The Future Of Hydrogen


As we all head out for the Memorial Day long weekend, most of us are focused on BBQ’s and Air Shows (I know I am). But there’s no reason to pickle your brain for 3 days without at least learning something. With that in mind, I feel compelled to share a report about the hydrogen sector written by my good friends at Capitalist Exploits. ... Read More

Berkshire Hathaway 2019


While I may have called it the “Woodstock of Crony Capitalism,” I have never ceased to be mesmerized by the Berkshire Hathaway (BRK – USA) annual meeting. Like a fly to poo, I continue to be drawn to it, even though I already know the well-worn routine; -40,000 self-assessed contrarians descend on Omaha, Nebraska to be told to buy good companies at a fair ...

Failure To LYFToff…


Over the past few quarters, I have become increasingly critical of the Profitless Prosperity Sector, known amongst my friends as the Ponzi Sector. Why Ponzi Sector? Because these companies have no profits yet continue to raise new capital by showing explosive revenue growth. Oddly, the more revenue they show, the more money they lose, because incremental revenue is at a negative gross margin. Many ... Read More

Who’s long Greece?


My good friend Chris, over at Capitalist Exploits has a new service named Insider Trade Alert. Needless to say, I’m a big fan. The strategy is a focus on “asymmetric risk/return scenarios” in un-followed and un-loved securities. When was the last time you even thought of Korean ship builders? When was the last time you thought that long-dated call premiums on European insurance stocks that ... Read More

The Lowdown From LD Micro


I don’t attend a lot of investment conferences as I prefer visiting companies on their home turf —you learn more that way. However, the LD Micro Invitational is “special” and after having missed the last few, I felt compelled to attend last week’s and get an update on the state of micro-cap investing (I define micro-cap as companies trading for under $50 million market ...

Mongolian Stock Exchange In NYC…


As long-time readers know, I am now focusing a considerable percentage of my time on Mongolia. For those who are interested in learning more about one of the most rapidly growing economies in the world, Thursday’s presentation by the Mongolian Stock Exchange (MSE) should be highly informative. ______________________________________________________________________________________________________________________   Altai Khangai, CEO of the MSE, and Saruul Ganbaatar, Deputy CEO of the MSE, will ...

Kuppy’s Book List


Since I started this site, I have been asked at least 100 times for a list of recommended books. I’ve finally gone home to Miami (first time since April) and gone through my books. HERE’S MY LIST OF RECOMMENDED BOOKS. I want to point out the obvious, which is that I’ve left out many investment favorites. If you haven’t read your Security Analysis, you clearly need ... Read More

It All Looks The Same To Me….


As a Floridian that’s recently moved to Mongolia, I have wizened up. Winters in Mongolia are cold, and I need a new wardrobe. My Florida ensemble (shorts, flip flops and whatever free t-shirt I got during a company visit), won’t cut it in Mongolia. Last winter, I survived on my only two sweaters. This year, I decided to go shopping for proper attire—as a ... Read More

Drinks With Kuppy…


Every year, my friends and I get together for a few casual drinks the friday before the Berkshire Hathaway annual meeting in Omaha. I thought it could be fun this year to open things up to AIC subscribers. In the past, we have chosen a local bar. Depending on the number of people coming, we may have to find a larger venue. Please RSVP ... Read More
