Invest ED by Phil Town & Danielle Town - 4d ago

This week Phil and Danielle talk about why Charlie Munger is so bitter about missing out on a stock purchase in the 1970s. Phil talks about what he calls “Mistakes of Omission”. 

Phil also talks about why it’s extremely hard to find a company that’s on sale right now. He’s not alone in this. Warren Buffett shares in his annual letter that he’d love to buy a huge company, but that nothing is priced on sale right now. It’s also hard to find companies in the private market as well.

We’re given the opportunity at the end of a bull market run. Right now it’s a blessing that the market hasn’t crashed because there are so many companies that you haven’t researched. This means you should be out there, researching all of the great companies that you can, and building your watchlist.

In this episode, Danielle and Phil discuss why short term viewpoints in the stock market are terrible. When analysts upgrade or downgrade a stock and the price drops, it’s terrible. When companies miss on earnings and the market responds with stock price dips, it’s terrible. Once you start having to hit a certain number every quarter rather than having to hit a certain number over the next five years, it becomes risky. What started as people wanting to get more information on company earnings has become a problem of short-term thinking. Charlie Munger thinks that short-term investing is insane. He’s said in the past that he almost never has a transaction.

This week Phil and Danielle discuss key takeaways from Charlie Munger’s Daily Journal Annual Meeting that took place at the end of February 2019. In the meeting, Charlie complained at fund managers try to beat the market and don’t, but still charge for it. Charlie’s main philosophy is to do less. They never had the illusion that they could get really useful information on all subjects. They realized that if they worked hard on a few things, and do those things really well, they would come out ahead. For show notes and more information visit www.investedpodcast.com

This week Phil and Danielle discuss why the financial industry doesn't want you to have the ability to do what they do. They don’t want to give you the  “secret formula” so they make finance seem complicated. You don't know Sharpe Ratio. You don't know Capital Asset Pricing Models. You don't know how to adjust for the Beta. Here’s the bottom line though, all of these things that are taught in the business schools, are BS.
We also talk about our upcoming interview with Jacob Taylor and announce our next “InvestED Book Club” read. We also discuss the MSCI ACWI Index. This is an index that you can buy that follows the stock markets in the entire world. Like buying the S&P 500 for the world.
Learn why Buffett says, “When America gets a cold, the rest of the world gets pneumonia.” For show notes and more information visit www.investedpodcast.com

This week, Phil and Danielle continue their discussion of Ray Dalio’s 5 principles for inevitable success. If you haven’t listened to episode 200 you probably want to start there.

We also discuss how difficult it is to understand why you made a mistake and how to fix it. Phil thinks that most of the time mistakes happen because you don’t fully understand something. Phil illustrates this by telling the story of the almond orchard that he purchased. The most important thing that you can do to tell if you truly understand something is to invert the entire story.

Finally, we talk about index investing. When you invest in an index, you’re effectively betting on the economy of another country. There might occasionally be a company in Canada, Europe, China, or Turkey you might want to invest in, but you have to consider the government of each of these countries and what they could potentially do to that business.

This week Phil and Danielle discuss prepping for the next recession. Seth Klarman published a paper to his investors that is a little scary. It basically takes a grim position on the economy and where we're at. We’re at the end of a long credit cycle with a ton of debt, there’s potential of recession, potential depression, potential wars, potential riots. A lot of really unpleasant things can happen at the end of a credit cycle when you simply have too much debt worldwide.
We also talk about why Phil doesn’t think it doesn't hurt to be in cash for 3 years if you're in cash when it all hits the fan and you can take advantage of that. The goal is to have capital available to invest when everybody else thinks it's the end of the world. Rule #1 investors want to invest want to invest in 1932 after the depression hit. We don't want to invest in 1999 during the dot-com bubble. We don't want to invest in 2007. We want to buy fear and sell greed. For show notes and more information

“When we value a company we want to look at a company that has a track record of 10 years. Especially, the last 10 years. IPOs are in the risky biz portfolio for lack of a long track record. ” - Phil Town

This week we discuss why we’re in such a wild stock market. The market dropped 15% and is working its way back up. We've got the “Trump Effect” going on and we're in our 10th year of no recession. That's the longest in American history. We’re also at a Shiller PE that hasn’t been this 140 years it's only been where it is now 4 other times.

Although Phil is pretty reluctant to talk about it, we do talk about upcoming IPOs and if an IPO is mature enough to do a Rule #1 analysis on them. For show notes and more information visit investedpodcast.com

“What makes a stock market dangerous is the fear and emotion that it creates when it drops.” - Phil Town

How do you invest safely in a dangerous stock market? This week we dive into what makes the stock market so dangerous. In the long run, the stock market will rise again and your investments, especially if you own wonderful businesses, will come out ahead down the road somewhere. Unfortunately, what makes it dangerous is that somewhere down the road has been as long as 26 years.

We also discuss the problem with interest rates on bonds and why they’re actually dropping when they should be going up. Why are people buying 30-year bonds for such low-interest rates? Because they want to lock in a good retirement or a decent rate of return in what may well be the next giant depression.
