Season 1, Episode 5
The Sammartino Method
Our very first guest! Steve Sammartino is another old friend of Cameron’s. He is also a successful sharemarket investor, with 25+ years experience, although his strategy is a little different and much less hands-on than Tony’s. Steve is also an author, futurist, consultant and speaker. On this podcast we talk with Steve about investing in index funds. Steve used index funds to make himself financially independent in his 30’s.
Tony thinks the market is going through the “five stages of grief” and we debate which stage we are up to. He also talks about the “Coppock Curve” which suggests markets, like people, go through periods of mourning. Then we answer some of your questions about: the best way to set up a profile to trade, comparing full-service brokers to low-cost DIY options, how to treat companies with negative “net income “, what Tony thinks about Discounted Cash Flow calculations, his thoughts on the possibility of inflation in the next few years, whether or not he ever uses options, whether or not found he has found any companies with good scores lately, and what he thinks about Kathmandu
Part 2 of our “getting started” reboot. In this episode we get into the nitty-gritty of the checklist and the data sources we use.
