Dear Friends, Over the years, I have frequently traded Event-Driven situations, dozens of which I have profitably profiled on this site. As value investing has stopped “working,” I have spent an increasing amount of my time focused on these situations, especially as the influx of retail day-traders and the growth of passive investing has led these situations to work surprisingly well. Along the way, ... Read More

My Real Vision Video…


…Yea, I know. I’m supposed to be on a vacation, but here I am, working anyway… Just for an update, I’m at the harbor in Montserrat drinking some rum. In case you weren’t aware, Montserrat is the place where a volcano blew off half the island in 1995. Don’t worry, I’ll post an update on my travels soon. In the interim, I’ve had lots ... Read More

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 ...

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 ...
