#144:Value Investing In The Cannabis Industry, Trulieve, and Green Thumb Industries - Julian Lin

The Intelligent Investing Podcast

Join Eric Schleien with today's interview guest, Julian Lin, as they discuss the different names in the country's cannabis industry and the stocks he entered and exited in light of the pandemic. For some of these companies, leaving the pandemic with so much debt and having to spend so much for redevelopment isn't going to be an excellent spot to have.SummaryIn this episode, Julian also talks about the presence of Canadian cannabis brands in American markets. Despite them being 'okay,' because they're the only names people can invest in when in America, the evaluations of these brands coming from across the border remain to sore insanely. Nonetheless, cannabis brands have challenges unique to them in general. Julian acknowledges that when you look at these companies, they scream expensive. In reality, if cannabis is decriminalized and is not to pay a particular type of tax in the future anymore, their shares will trade at multiple folds in earnings. For Julian, the macro picture for cannabis is all promising in the next 2-4 years.  About Julian LinJulian Lin runs Best Of Breed, a research service uncovering high conviction ideas in the winners of tomorrow.

#81: Julian Lin | The opportunity in mall REITs | Macerich (MAC)

The Intelligent Investing Podcast

Show Notes In this episode, Eric sits down with Julian Lin to discuss the mall real estate industry. Julian is a contributor on Seeking Alpha with over 13,000 followers. Julian runs a stock investment newsletter named Best of Breed which invests in high-quality companies with “moaty” business models, conservative balance sheets, and best in class management teams. You can find out more about the newsletter here - there is a 2 week free trial available. Stocks of mall real estate investment trusts (‘Mall REITs’) have been crushed over the past several years, with some names having dividend yields up to 30%. While retail bankruptcies and store closures have indeed pressured the sector, there are many misconceptions. For one, vacant Sears and JCPenney stores do not signal the “death of malls” but instead present opportunity. Mall landlords are replacing these stores with restaurants, fitness centers, movie theaters, all while earning an 8% cash return on investment. Further, not all malls are created equal. Many low-quality malls may eventually need to be completely repurposed away, but high-quality malls, known as “Class A malls,” continue to thrive and should have relevance for decades to come. Class A malls continue to raise rents and grow cash flows. The elevated amount of store closures and retail bankruptcies has depressed occupancy rates and cash flows in the near term, but Class A malls should be able to backfill vacancies and return to strong cash flow growth in short order. Julian reveals the two names that he is most optimistic about in the sector, one with an A credit balance sheet and another with a nearly 13% dividend yield.

Marketplace Roundtable #47: Best Of Breed Investing With Julian Lin

Marketplace Roundtable

Julian Lin joins the Marketplace Roundtable podcast to discuss his "best of breed" approach to investing high probability operators, as plays out on his Marketplace service, High Probability Investments. Lin aims for high median returns, which requires a focus on increasing the probability of an investment's potential. "What that basically means is I'm not going to choose the cheapest operator in the space," he says. "I'm probably going to pay up for the best of breed operator, even though they might trade at a premium valuation to peers."One common mistake investors make is to rely on valuation metrics for a margin of safety. A complete investment thesis focuses on the bigger picture, says Lin. "It's not the valuation that tends to ruin an investment thesis, it's really everything else -- bad management, high debt, bad financial results." Focusing on the best of breed operators is a good place to start.Topics covered:2:00 minute mark - Description of investment strategy3:15 - How do you choose investments?5:00 - Current view of the market6:00 - Other than valuation, what separates low from high quality?9:30 - Concerns about market/portfolio14:30 - What gives you confidence about your approach?16:00 - Favorite idea (SPG)29:30 - Probably of a Facebook breakup (FB)30:00 - Bullish on Amazon (AMZN)35:00 - Change of heart on Alibaba (BABA) Learn more about your ad choices.
