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.
This week we talk about why our portfolio outperformed the index by 1300%, the wisdom of Peter Lynch, why Howard Marks wants to stay in the middle, and our stock analysis of the week is Universal Coal.
Tony talks about rights issues and some of the complexities involved in knowing whether to take them up or not. I know, right? Sounds boring! It wasn’t actually, I learned a lot. We also discussed a few recent news articles about value investing, Tony reveals his wine of the week, and in our analysis section we breakdown the financials of Horizon Oil.
