Meb Faber - Quant Savant

The Business Brew

Meb Faber joins The Business Brew to discuss his views on investments, geographical diversification, trend following, and much more. Meb's podcast, The Meb Faber Show https://mebfaber.com/podcast/, was one of the first financial podcasts Bill listened to.  That show has featured many incredible thinkers, different styles of investments, and more recently many private market investment discussions.  In addition to his podcast, Meb writes often and highlights his favorite investment writing (see https://www.cambriainvestments.com/investing-insights/).  Another fun thing Meb does is post things he disagrees with his peers about.  You can find that thread at https://twitter.com/mebfaber/status/1108070025770856448?s=21. Meb is incredibly smart, nice, and everyone that knows him speaks highly of him.  The Business Brew hopes this conversation adds value to your day.  We also hope it adds a different element to your thinking.  But as importantly, we hope it highlights Meb. Meb, thank you for the education you've shared.  And thank you for joining the show.

Meb Faber on Value Investing, Diversification and Expecting the Unexpected

The Altogether Show with Eric Satz

Investor. Writer. Researcher. Strategist. Family man. This week’s guest wears multiple hats—all at the same time. Known for his blog, podcast, and several books about the craft of investing, Meb Faber’s voice appeals to investors and non-investors alike. Investing is “all about narratives,” Faber says, “Look at historical contexts and global weather, stakeholder interests and your own motivations.” A veteran strategist with a love for reading, Faber is a big proponent of portfolio diversification and learning to be a “value investor.” Born in Colorado, Meb moved around a lot as a boy and landed in North Carolina for his adolescent years. After graduating from the University of Virginia with a double major in Engineering Science and Biology, he changed direction and became an investment strategies expert. Today, he lives in Los Angeles with his wife and three-year-old son. Listening to Meb’s conversation with Eric,  you’ll quickly hear why he is such a natural fit for Alto’s mantra, “you do you.” In this episode, value investor Meb Faber shares market wisdom applicable not only to stocks, bonds, and building your portfolio, but also to life itself, from farming to family and beyond. If you want to know the secret to being ready for the unexpected—take a listen. Anything else you need please let us know!

Meb Faber: A Framework for Outperformance

Real Vision: Finance, Business & The Global Economy

The Interview: Jason Buck of the Mutiny Fund welcomes Mebane Faber, co-founder and chief investment officer of Cambria Investments, for an in-depth conversation on the methods diligent investors can use to build and maintain wealth in all market environments. Faber breaks down his rigorous quantitative models to share fresh insights on bonds, equities, real estate, and commodities as well as the role these assets play within a portfolio. Faber and Buck discuss the importance of negatively correlated assets such as put options, which are a key feature of the Cambria Tail Risk ETF ($TAIL). Key learnings: Equity valuations are stretched thin, but buying at all-time highs has historically yielded surprisingly good returns. Faber thinks non-U.S. stocks are underrepresented in the typical U.S. portfolio and argues that for most individual investors, steady contributions to their portfolio matter much more than eking out that extra percentage of return.Recorded on 14 April 2021.

One on One with Meb Faber – All Things ETFs, Momentum & Value

The Allstarcharts Podcast on Technical Analysis Radio: Current Market Analysis For Traders

JC Parets · One on One with Meb Faber – All Things ETFs, Momentum & Value This week on the podcast I sit down with Meb Faber, Co-Founder, CEO and CIO of Cambia Investments. In addition to his “Day job”, as he puts it, Meb has authored 5 investment books, a countless amount of white papers, and is also a very popular follow on Twtter @MebFaber. This was really fun for me because Meb is an expert at a lot of things that I am just not, like what happens behind the scenes at ETFs, angel investing and academic studies. He brings up some great points about providing strategies that work, but that people also want/need. He has some strong opinions about share buy backs instead of distributing dividends, learning through acting and participating, and how lucky him and I are that we took the CMT decades ago when it was a lot easier than it is today! This was a lot of fun. Meb is a chill dude, but don’t let him fool you, he’s one of the smartest guys in the room! Enjoy! Click here return to the episode page
