I found myself listening to Kenny Rogers’ The Gambler recently (one of my dad’s favourite songs when I was a kid) and it made me think of this week’s show.
“You gotta know when to hold ’em;
Know when to fold ’em.
Know when to walk away;
Know when to run.”
This week we have a lot of questions from club members about when to sell and three-point trendlines. We also talk about Tony’s horse that ran in the Cox Plate and why the checklist doesn’t have a debt-to-equity data point.
Our stock analysis this week is KSL – Kina Securities.
This week on the show, The Value Investing Guru and Cameron talk about some difficulties getting Share Analysis to do what we want; a new analysis tool called QuickFS; stories about Warren Buffett; Cameron’s growing passion around QAV; changes to our portfolio involving Apollo Tourism and Stanmore Coal; and in our deep dive analysis this week we look at Mastermyne.
This week we have a guest – Cameron Britten from Share Analysis. As longtime listeners will be aware, Tony’s a big fan of several online tools and Share Analysis has been one of those for many years. They had a recent “re-platforming” event which took the service down for a few months. But they are back and we invited Cameron on to talk a little about the history and the future of the service. He also let us know that they are currently running an extended free trial service, so if aren’t already a member, jump over to their website and sign up today. Services like this make value investing much easier than it was back in the early days of Berkshire Hathaway and Benjamin Graham.
On this episode we debunk more claims about the death of value investing and how it relates to the “Japanification” of the economy; I come up with a new nickname for Tony; And we answer a listener question about how quickly he invests new funds.
Our stock analysis of the week is the diversified leather manufacturer SCHAFFER CORPORATION (SFC).
