Kevin Carter – The Math of Shorting a Stock Is Against You
My Worst Investment Ever Podcast
BIO: Kevin Carter is the Founder and CIO of the Emerging Markets Internet & Ecommerce ETF (NYSE: EMQQ) and Chairman of the EMQQ Index Committee.STORY: During the Dot-com boom, Kevin came across Amazon, but he dismissed it as just a bookstore not worth its valuation. He decided to short Amazon and lost a third of his net worth at the time. Had he bought the stock instead of short selling it, he would be $50,000 richer today.LEARNING: Short selling is a bad investment idea. Nobody can do a perfect valuation; always know that you are working with estimates. “Good judgment comes from experience, and experience comes from bad judgment.”Kevin Carter Guest profileKevin Carter is the Founder and CIO of the Emerging Markets Internet & Ecommerce ETF (NYSE: EMQQ) and Chairman of the EMQQ Index Committee. Prior to EMQQ, Kevin was the Founder & CEO of AlphaShares, an investment firm offering five Emerging Markets ETFs in partnership with Guggenheim Investments. Previously Kevin was the Founder & CEO of Active Index Advisors, acquired by Natixis in 2005, and the Founder & CEO of eInvesting, acquired by ETRADE in 2000. Kevin received a degree in Economics from the University of Arizona and began his career in 1992 with Robertson Stephens & Company.Worst investment everIn the late 90s, Kevin was a very confident young value investor. He wanted to be like the likes of Warren Buffett. He had worked as an analyst professionally and got paid very well by hedge funds and mutual funds for his research.The Dot.com boom hitsThe Internet showed up, and then the Dot-com bubble burst. Kevin was relatively successful at that point and confident but also a bit naive.Kevin got wind of a new e-commerce company, Amazon, but he thought of it as just a bookstore. He believed that it shouldn’t be valued any differently. He spent a lot of time comparing Amazon to Barnes and Noble and was convinced that it would not amount to much.Kevin concluded that with a $1.4 billion market cap, Amazon’s stock would sell for just a fraction of that. He even predicted that the company would be lucky to sell for $200 million in cash.Short selling AmazonKevin decided to short Amazon in March of 1998. He lost about a third of his net worth in a day and a half.Amazon’s current market cap is $1.6 trillion. Had Kevin not short sold Amazon and instead bought the stock, his position today would be worth $50,000.Lessons learnedDon’t make valuation shortsShort selling to make money is a bad idea because it has complicated mathematics behind it. Most of the time, it is just not worth it. The other problem is when you short something, and you’re wrong, your exposure gets bigger.Andrew’s takeawaysLet go of hindsight biasWhen people make mistakes, they will often engage in hindsight bias. They look back and wish if only they had done this or that. The truth is, when you are making decisions, you’re making them with the best information you have and the application of your judgment at the time.Nobody can do a perfect valuationIt is tough to make a 100% correct evaluation. The solution is always to question everything when developing a valuation estimate and accept that it is an estimate.Actionable adviceUnderstand and work with the price-to-earnings-to-growth (PEG) ratio when picking a stock.No. 1 goal for the next 12 monthsKevin’s number one goal for the next 12 months is to have fun and try to re-enter the real world.Parting words “Have fun and enjoy the rest of the year.”Kevin Carter [spp-transcript] Connect with Kevin CarterLinkedInTwitterWebsiteAndrew’s booksHow to Start Building Your Wealth Investing in the Stock MarketMy Worst Investment Ever9 Valuation Mistakes and How to Avoid ThemTransform Your Business with Dr.Deming’s 14 PointsAndrew’s online programsValuation Master ClassHow to Start Building Your Wealth Investing in the Stock MarketFinance Made Ridiculously SimpleBecome a Great Presenter and Increase Your InfluenceTransform Your Business with Dr. Deming’s 14 PointsConnect with Andrew Stotz:astotz.comLinkedInFacebookInstagramTwitterYouTubeMy Worst Investment Ever Podcast

Episode 1451: No Holds Barred: Kevin Carter on the Rise and Decline and Rise of Sumo in America (Part Two)
No Holds Barred with Eddie Goldman
On this edition of No Holds Barred, host Eddie Goldman once again spoke with sumotori, judoka, writer, and intellectual Kevin Carter. This is the second part of a two-part interview.We spoke with him by phone Wednesday, April 14.In the 1990s, sumo in Japan began to reach a wider international audience, including in the U.S., with the emergence of several stars who were not Japanese."You had Akebono, Musashimaru, Konishiki," Kevin Carter recalled.Konishiki, an American born in Hawaii, was the first non-Japanese-born wrestler to reach ozeki, the second-highest rank in sumo. Many believed that he would have been promoted to yokozuna, the highest rank, had he been Japanese.In 1993, Akebono, also an American born in Hawaii, became the first non-Japanese-born wrestler and the first American to be promoted to yokozuna.Musashimaru, born in American Samoa and who grew up in Hawaii, became in 1999 the second foreign-born wrestler to be promoted to yokozuna. "And then you had a few other Hawaiians who were in juryo, which is the second top professional division. So these guys were also in the top 50. You had those three top guys, and you had maybe three, four, or five guys who were one step below. And they were all thriving. The Hawaiians were really thriving. The Americans were really thriving," he said.But that success, though increasing sumo's worldwide appeal, did not sit well with many who ran the Japan Sumo Association, which governs the sport in Japan. The result was a blanket decision which reverberates today."And then they banned all foreigners from coming in."With that, sumo's popularity, and where it was practiced outside Japan, radically changed."When that happened, that basically put the kibosh on Hawaii. There was nothing for the Hawaiians to aspire to anymore. They really, they were basically told, 'We're not taking any of you for any reason.'"There was like a ten-year period where very few foreigners were coming in. They let a few guys in from Mongolia. They let a few guys in from China. But they had cut off other parts of Europe for a little while."And for some, this discrimination persists. "They still have an unspoken ban on Hawaiians, just like they have an unspoken ban on Africans and other Black people," he noted.At the same time, his own active participation in sumo competition was coming to an end. His last match was in 2002, but he still kept up with the sport.In 2005, it appeared that sumo would take a major step forward as an international sport with the emergence of the World Sumo Challenge. Their inaugural event was held October 22, 2005, at Madison Square Garden, and was shown on tape delay on ESPN2 that December. This was a professional event featuring top sumo wrestlers from around the world, planned to lead to a worldwide tour the following year.Some of the same people who organized the 1998 "Night of the Giants" sumo event in Atlantic City, New Jersey, were also involved in the World Sumo Challenge. One of them was Kevin Carter's old sumo coach, Yoshisada Yonezuka, who ran the Cranford Judo Karate Center in Cranford, New Jersey, and who also had trained Manny Yarbrough, who also was retired from sumo by this time.It would have seemed logical for the organizers of the World Sumo Challenge to have brought in Kevin Carter, with his experience and record in many areas of sumo. He also lived reasonably close to New York City. But, surprisingly to him, the call never came.With that snub, it was the end of the line for him in sumo. He said his attitude then was, "Fuck sumo."While the World Sumo Challenge drew some 8000 mainly enthusiastic fans to Madison Square Garden, their 2006 tour was a bust. Now called the World Sumo League, they had no TV deal, fan attendance in the arenas was quite low, and the tour was abandoned midway, never to be resumed.All these blunders drove one of its most serious devotees, Kevin Carter, from the sport. He no longer even followed it closely or watched sumo events.The appeal of the sport, though, and his love of sumo, were still lingering. In more recent years he has done some refereeing and judging, and was asked to be a referee at the 2020 U.S. National Sumo Championships, organized by the U.S. Sumo Federation. He wanted to do this, but was only unable to do so because of job commitments. In the meantime, he also became a black belt in judo.As we have noted many times, there has been a marked and recent revival of sumo in the U.S. New clubs have been formed and new tournaments have been held, a growth impeded mainly by the coronavirus pandemic. With mass vaccinations going on in the U.S, expect sumo to thrive even more, and, unlike in Japan, among a very diverse cross-section of people.And while just what Kevin Carter will do in sumo today is not clear, he wants to, and certainly should, return to playing an important role in the sport."I really would enjoy seeing that revival and being part of that revival," he stressed.So this story of Kevin Carter and his love of sumo is not yet over. There hopefully will be some more fond chapters to come, because, as the late Teddy Pendergrass sang:"So good, so good, so good,"When somebody loves you back."Please also subscribe to the No Holds Barred page on Patreon for much more No Holds Barred content.The Podomatic Podcast Player app is available for free, both for Android at Google Play, and for iOS on the App Store.The No Holds Barred theme song is called "The Heist", which is also available on iTunes by composer Ian Snow.No Holds Barred is sponsored by:LenneHardt.com, the home of Lenne Hardt, the legendary MMA and sports announcer, voice actor, singer, actress, and comedienne.
