Episode 13: In The SPAC Shell Game - Don't Be The Sucker
In this episode we cover dig into the latest investment craze...SPACs. Special Purpose Acquisition Companies (“SPACs”) are extremely complex and have historically been highly efficient wealth destroyers for retail investors. Complexity obfuscates the risks and costs investors will bear. If you are thinking of investing in a complex structured deal like a SPAC and you are wondering who is most likely to bear the greatest risk and costs, it is probably you. The richest people on Wall Street are not necessarily the best investors, but the best deal makers. They are experts at structuring heads I win, tails you lose deals, where the financial success of their investors has little to no bearing on their own financial rewards.

Episode 11: GameStop - A Financial Battle to the Death and What it Foreshadows
Some traders are making millions or tens of millions of dollars on their GameStop holdings, while several hedge funds are losing billions of dollars. A huge number of small retail traders have been taking it to the billion-dollar hedge funds that have large short positions in GameStop, and these retail traders are a vicious pack out for blood. This zero-sum battle between small retail investors taking long positions (betting the stock will go up) and big money hedge funds on the short side of the trade (betting the stock will go down) led to a massive short squeeze that propelled the price of GameStop into a parabolic move to the moon.

Episode 4: Why Mutual Funds Are Bad Investments
In this episode I discuss why I believe Mutual Funds are bad investments in general. Mutual funds are the sacred cow of the largest investment firms, believe me, I do not make any friends among investing peers when talking about this topic. However, I have always believed that investment decisions should not be driven by the status quo within the industry, but that any investment approach should be able to stand up to the rigors of evidence-based analysis.
