Educating the Next Generation of Investors in MicroCap Stocks

Rank #1: Ep. 78 - What is ‘Intrinsic Investing’ and Emerging Moat Businesses with Sean Stannard-Stockton, President & CIO of Ensemble Capital

Podcast cover
Read more

For this episode of Planet MicroCap Podcast, I spoke with Sean Stannard-Stockton, President and Chief Investment Officer of Ensemble Capital. I’m always looking for new and interesting topics to cover on here, and I was doing research on potential guests for the podcast. I came across Sean’s website, IntrinsicInvesting.com, and had to learn more. It sounds like a combination of ‘intrinsic value’ and ‘value investing’, and as you will hear, Sean goes in depth on how he’s derived an investing strategy using this concept. While Sean’s firm is not MicroCap-focused, we try to apply this idea of ‘intrinsic investing’ for someone who has a MicroCap-focused investing strategy. The goal for this episode is to learn more about what ‘intrinsic investing’ is, as well as discuss a few articles and topics Sean and his team have written about on IntrinsicInvesting.com.

Rank #2: Ep. 81 - How to Approach Investing in Energy Markets with Keith Schaefer, Publisher of Oil and Gas Investments Bulletin

Podcast cover
Read more

For this episode of Planet MicroCap Podcast, I spoke with Keith Schaefer, Publisher of Oil and Gas Investments Bulletin. I’ve met Keith a few times on the conference circuit, having been booth buddies along the way. I also have yet to do an episode completely dedicated to Energy markets and how to approach looking at a potential investment in this space. I’ll admit, I’m a bit of a novice in this space, so I apologize in advance if some of my questions may sound a little off, but after interviewing Keith, I felt a lot more informed. As you will hear, Keith has been running Oil and Gas Investments Bulletin for some time now, and I’m excited to share his insights on how he has gone about investing in this space. The goal for this episode is to learn more about how Keith Schaefer approaches investing in energy markets.

Rank #4: Ep. 91 - So you want to be an Activist Investor? with Jeff Gramm, Bandera Partners and Author of “Dear Chairman”

Podcast cover
Read more

For this episode of the Planet MicroCap Podcast, I caught up with Jeff Gramm, Author of “Dear Chairman”. In our first interview on the podcast, Episode 40, we dissect his book, “Dear Chairman” - chapter by chapter. During that interview, we talk about the history and rise of shareholder activism, how it has evolved in the last 100 years, the difference between shareholder activism in large caps and microcaps, and much more. I invited Jeff back because I’ve been wanting to do an episode similar to ones I’ve done with Ian Cassel and Mike Schellinger about the life of a full-time MicroCap investor, but for this episode – the life of an activist investor and the best practices for those of you that may be interested in wanting to be an activist. The goal for this episode is to try and answer the question: so you want to be an activist investor?

Rank #5: Ep. 77 - Illiquidity and Finding Value on the OTC Markets with Doug Mohn, NoCalledStrikes.com

Podcast cover
Read more

For this episode of Planet MicroCap Podcast, I spoke with Doug Mohn, Editor of NoCalledStrikes.com. I met Doug recently at the MicroCap Leadership Summit in Chicago, and I enjoyed getting to know him, as well as hearing his experiences regarding investing in MicroCap stocks. What is interesting about our conversation you’re about to hear is that, unlike most investors, Doug doesn’t mind illiquidity – in fact, finding revenue generating companies listed on the Pink Sheets is part of his criteria. Like most of the interviews you’ve heard on here, most of guests have said in one degree or another that there’s a natural edge when investing in MicroCap stocks because most institutions can’t and won’t get involved until these businesses mature. I would argue that Doug takes this notion a step further by looking at illiquid stocks that generate revenues on the Pink Sheets – most retail investors don’t start there. The goal for this interview is to learn more about Doug’s investing strategy and his journey looking for winners on the Pink Sheets.

For this episode of the Planet MicroCap Podcast, I spoke with Rohith Potti, Co-Author of the upcoming, “Intelligent Fanatics of India.” This was very exciting for me – not only as a fan of “Intelligent Fanatics” series, but its covering a part of the world that I’ve had little exposure too. While I’ve interviewed some well-known Indian investors on here, Professor Bakshi and Gautum Baid, I’m looking forward to reading about some of the best entrepreneurs that have built successful businesses in India. Now, to guide us through this journey is my guest today, Rohith Potti. I had the opportunity to interview Rohith at the MicroCapClub Leadership Summit in Chicago a couple weeks ago, where we discussed Rohith’s background, his inspirations and he gave some snippets to what you can expect in the latest edition of Intelligent Fanatics. Thank you Ian Cassel and Sean Iddings for helping set this up, and for hosting another great event – I highly recommend everyone try and attend in 2020.

Rank #8: Ep. 97 - MicroCap Value Destruction: An Antidote with Adam J. Epstein, Founder of Third Creek Advisors, LLC

Podcast cover

For this episode of the Planet MicroCap Podcast, I caught up with Adam Epstein, Founder of Third Creek Advisors, LLC. I previously had Adam on the podcast for Episode 22, where we discussed the importance of paying attention to corporate governance. Since then, a new platform has been launched, called, “Small Cap Institute”, whose ecosystem, as it states on their website, “is designed to elevate objective, differentiated education and transformative peer exchange, and empower small cap leaders to avoid value-destructive advice.” Founded by David Scher, who, as it states on their website, “occupies a unique vantage point from which to understand at a granular level which issues are most troubling to small-cap CEOs and Boards.” Most of you know David from his work at LD Micro with Chris Lahiji, and Adam Epstein joined Small Cap Institute’s advisory board to support and help David execute the mission and problem SCI is trying to solve – a potential antidote to MicroCap value destruction.

Rank #10: Ep. 89 - Your Investing Strategy Has to Fit You with Vitaliy Katsenelson, CEO/CIO of Investment Management Associates, Inc. (IMA)

Podcast cover
Read more

For this episode of Planet MicroCap Podcast, I spoke with Vitaliy Katsenelson, CEO and CIO of IMA. I came to know Vitaliy by finding his profile on Twitter. From there, I started reading his blog, listening to his podcast and read a few of the available chapters of his book, and knew I had to reach out to have him on.

In this interview we focus quite a bit on how the more you know yourself, then the more informed you’ll be about what type of investing strategy and investor you will be.

As Vitaliy states in the interview, and I’m paraphrasing here, “investing is like clothes shopping. Some will look great, but when you try them on, that clothing item may not fit right. You try on different clothing that looks good, and eventually you find what works for you.” The goal for this episode is to learn how Vitaliy looked inward to understand what investing strategy would work best for him. Maybe this inspires you to look inward in order to help yourself become the best investor you can be.

For this episode of the Planet MicroCap Podcast, I spoke with Adrian Day, Chairman and CEO of Adrian Day Asset Management. We first met Mr. Day in 2017 at the Sprott Natural Resource Symposium, and we have done two video interviews with him discussing his viewpoints on geopolitics and natural resource investing. I wanted to do an interview with Mr. Day on the podcast to get a deeper understanding of his investing philosophy and process. On his website, he outlines how he and his firm don’t just focus on resources – they also focus on value and global opportunities. The latter of which I wanted to understand a bit further because we have not covered this topic in depth. The goal for this episode is learn more about Mr. Day’s approach to analyzing and investing in global markets.

That has all led me to my guest, Professor Darrol Stanley, my professor for finance to share his wealth of knowledge and experience with you all today. I loved Professor Stanley’s class because it was as old school as it gets, and he remained focused on teaching us the traditional value investing principles passed down from the greats: from Benjamin Graham to Warren Buffet, and we even spent time at the beginning of one class discussing Professor Sanjay Bakshi’s contributions to the world of investing. The goal for this episode to take you to class with me with one of my favorite Professors to discuss a topic we all know and love: finance and investing.

Since then, Tom was an equity analyst at Oppenheimer for a couple years, honing his due diligence and research skills. I decided to have Tom back on because he recently started a new venture called, 51Percent Crypto Research - “51pct.io”, where he is providing institutional-grade research covering the cryptocurrency and blockchain industry. While I’ve done an interview covering ICOs on here, I have yet to do a full-on, “crypto-dedicated” episode, and we do our best to cover a lot of ground. The goal for this episode is to define cryptocurrency, blockchain and try to get a better understanding as to how to value this new asset class.

Podcast cover

For this episode of the Planet MicroCap Podcast, I spoke with John Vandermosten, Senior Biotech Analyst at Zack’s Small-Cap Research. I met John recently at a conference in Austin, where we did a brief interview for the SNN Network YouTube Channel to discuss how to simplify the biotech valuation process, gene therapy and trends in biotech. I really enjoyed our chat then, and invited John back on to do a full wrap on 2019, as well as some trends he finds interesting for 2020.

Ep. 103 - Catching up with OTC Markets and Addressing Critical Issues to MicroCap Ecosystem with Cromwell Coulson, CEO of OTC Markets Group, Inc.

Podcast cover
Read more

For this episode of the Planet MicroCap Podcast, I spoke with Cromwell Coulson, CEO of OTC Markets Group, Inc., a publicly-traded company, OTCM on the OTCQX. I originally spoke with Cromwell on the podcast in Episode 25. During that episode, we discussed his background, history of OTC Markets, but we focused quite heavily on Reg A+. At that time, August 2016, the JOBS Act rules had just gone into effect in May 2016, and OTC was, and still is, an integral part of that new ecosystem. However, I invited Mr. Coulson back on for a couple reasons:

1. I think its important for the MicroCap community to hear from Cromwell and get his latest insights on critical issues that affect our space

2. I’ve spoken with many investors both on here, at events, etc…, and wanted to take this opportunity to ask Cromwell some questions that other investors want to know from him

3. To get an update on what OTC Markets is doing to create a transparent, connected and open marketplace

Ep. 102 - SEC Wants to Stop Trading in Dark Stocks with Dan Schum, NoNameStocks.com

Podcast cover

For this episode of the Planet MicroCap Podcast, I’m sharing with you an interview I did with Dan Schum, Editor of NoNameStocks.com. We recorded and I shared our chat on our YouTube Channel back in mid-October, and I have a couple reasons I wanted to share the interview on here: 

  1. I really enjoyed my conversation with Dan and learning about his investing thesis, particularly how he’s been successful investing in Dark Stocks
  2. The article he wrote, which inspired the title of our interview, “SEC Wants to Stop Trading in Dark Stocks”, is still a very active conversation going on where you can share your comments with the SEC
  3. I have a very special episode that I’ll be sharing with you next week with Cromwell Coulson, CEO of OTC Markets Group, where we'll address some of the issues Dan and I discuss here, as well as many other hot topic questions I know most of you would like to ask him yourselves.

For this episode of the Planet MicroCap Podcast, I spoke with Rohith Potti, Co-Author of the upcoming, “Intelligent Fanatics of India.” This was very exciting for me – not only as a fan of “Intelligent Fanatics” series, but its covering a part of the world that I’ve had little exposure too. While I’ve interviewed some well-known Indian investors on here, Professor Bakshi and Gautum Baid, I’m looking forward to reading about some of the best entrepreneurs that have built successful businesses in India. Now, to guide us through this journey is my guest today, Rohith Potti. I had the opportunity to interview Rohith at the MicroCapClub Leadership Summit in Chicago a couple weeks ago, where we discussed Rohith’s background, his inspirations and he gave some snippets to what you can expect in the latest edition of Intelligent Fanatics. Thank you Ian Cassel and Sean Iddings for helping set this up, and for hosting another great event – I highly recommend everyone try and attend in 2020.

Ep. 97 - MicroCap Value Destruction: An Antidote with Adam J. Epstein, Founder of Third Creek Advisors, LLC

Podcast cover

For this episode of the Planet MicroCap Podcast, I caught up with Adam Epstein, Founder of Third Creek Advisors, LLC. I previously had Adam on the podcast for Episode 22, where we discussed the importance of paying attention to corporate governance. Since then, a new platform has been launched, called, “Small Cap Institute”, whose ecosystem, as it states on their website, “is designed to elevate objective, differentiated education and transformative peer exchange, and empower small cap leaders to avoid value-destructive advice.” Founded by David Scher, who, as it states on their website, “occupies a unique vantage point from which to understand at a granular level which issues are most troubling to small-cap CEOs and Boards.” Most of you know David from his work at LD Micro with Chris Lahiji, and Adam Epstein joined Small Cap Institute’s advisory board to support and help David execute the mission and problem SCI is trying to solve – a potential antidote to MicroCap value destruction.

For this episode of the Planet MicroCap Podcast, I spoke with Adam Wilk, Portfolio Manager at Greystone Capital Management and Editor of Pound the Rock Investing investor blog. I reached out to Adam after reading his blog post, “Basketball and Investing: A Match Made in Heaven”, where he documents his experience working for the San Antonio Spurs. In the post, and you will soon hear, his time working with the Spurs and general manager, R.C. Buford, yielded lessons that he was able to incorporate into his passion for investing.

Adam’s blog, “Pound the Rock Investing”, is even inspired by the Stonecutter’s Creedo, a quote made famous by Jacob Riis, and is at the core of the Spurs’ culture. I’m a huge sports fan, and love when investing podcasts bring on people who have worked in the sports world. There are so many parallels, and if you’re a fan like me, you’ll enjoy my upcoming chat with Adam.

For this episode of the Planet MicroCap Podcast, I caught up with Jeff Gramm, Author of “Dear Chairman”.

During that interview, we talk about the history and rise of shareholder activism, how it has evolved in the last 100 years, the difference between shareholder activism in large caps and microcaps, and much more. I invited Jeff back because I’ve been wanting to do an episode similar to ones I’ve done with Ian Cassel and Mike Schellinger about the life of a full-time MicroCap investor, but for this episode – the life of an activist investor and the best practices for those of you that may be interested in wanting to be an activist. The goal for this episode is to try and answer the question: so you want to be an activist investor?

Ep. 90 - MicroCap Graduation Series: eXp World Holdings, Inc. (NASDAQ: EXPI)

Podcast cover
Read more

For this episode of the Planet MicroCap Podcast, we are launching a new series here called, the “MicroCap Graduation Series”. I’ve done about 90 interviews here on the podcast, and I’ve interviewed some of the best investors, where they discuss the investing strategies that helped them be successful investors. The next evolution I always envisioned for Planet MicroCap was to interview CEO’s who have successfully navigated the MicroCap waters to either be acquired by or graduate to a Small-, Mid- or Large-Cap company.

The goal is to portray a full picture of the Micro-, Nano-cap space – from learning strategies to help you become a successful investor and to show that there are actual real, live public companies that have found success as a public Micro- or Nano-cap company. There also may be some of you listening to this that are CEOs or C-suite management of a Micro/Nano-cap public company or emerging growth private company; my guest today and future guests of this series have a lot of great information to share that led to their success.

Without further or due, my first guest for this series is Glenn Sanford, Founder and CEO of eXp World Holdings, Inc. They are a publicly traded company on NASDAQ, with the symbol, EXPI. As a quick background, eXp World Holdings, Inc. operates eXp Realty, a cloud-based, international real estate brokerage firm. eXp is one of the fastest growing real estate brands in North America that currently has 18,000+ agents/brokers on their platform. They are tech company that from 2014-2018, EXPI’s revenue experienced a 147% CAGR. All numbers I’m relaying here are from EXPI’s May 2019 investor presentation.

The company went public in late 2013 as a small MicroCap, where it traded as low at $0.15 during 2014, and as of today, June 25, 2019 is trading at $10.77 per share, with a market cap of around $664 million. I derived share and market cap information from Yahoo Finance.

Ep. 89 - Your Investing Strategy Has to Fit You with Vitaliy Katsenelson, CEO/CIO of Investment Management Associates, Inc. (IMA)

Podcast cover
Read more

For this episode of Planet MicroCap Podcast, I spoke with Vitaliy Katsenelson, CEO and CIO of IMA. I came to know Vitaliy by finding his profile on Twitter. From there, I started reading his blog, listening to his podcast and read a few of the available chapters of his book, and knew I had to reach out to have him on.

In this interview we focus quite a bit on how the more you know yourself, then the more informed you’ll be about what type of investing strategy and investor you will be.

As Vitaliy states in the interview, and I’m paraphrasing here, “investing is like clothes shopping. Some will look great, but when you try them on, that clothing item may not fit right. You try on different clothing that looks good, and eventually you find what works for you.” The goal for this episode is to learn how Vitaliy looked inward to understand what investing strategy would work best for him. Maybe this inspires you to look inward in order to help yourself become the best investor you can be.

Planet MicroCap Podcast will be coming to YouTube! All archived episodes and each new episode will be posted on the SNN Network YouTube channel. I’ve provided the link in the description if you’d like to subscribe. You’ll also get the chance to watch all our Video Interviews with management teams, educational panels from the conference, as well as expert commentary from some familiar guests on the podcast.

Ep. 88 - The Big Picture for Small Cap Value with Bill Nasgovitz, Founder and Portfolio Manager at the Heartland Value Fund

Podcast cover
Read more

For this episode of Planet MicroCap Podcast, I spoke with Bill Nasgovitz, Chairman and Portfolio Manager of the Heartland Value Fund and Small Cap Value Strategy. I had originally met Bill two years at an investor conference in California, and he ended up agreeing to be our keynote speaker at our 2017 Planet MicroCap Showcase, where he discussed “Opportunity in a Passive World”. Click here to watch his presentation

Mr. Nasgovitz has over 50 years experience as a MicroCap investor, as well as 35 years with Heartland. He has more experience investing in what we all know and love probably than most of us have collectively. With that, I had to have Bill on to share his insights on how the Small Cap, MicroCap universe has changed over the years, Heartland’s investment process and what the opportunity is for investors in the Small, Micro and Nano-Cap space.
