Season 1, Episode 44
Our last show of 2019! Our guest this week is listener Andre Bravo, a Canadian who has a Masters in Applied Computational Economics and works in the weed industry. Oh NOW I have your attention! Andre joined us this week to talk about the app he has written to speed up his own QAV analysis, and then we get his help to analyse our first US stock – Hertz (HTZ.N). It’s an interesting one because we couldn’t use our usual tools and had to resort to pulling up numbers manually. The basic lesson is that the checklist can be used to analyse US stocks. Andre also asks a few really great questions about how Tony uses the checklist and gave a refresher course how on to simulate Stock Doctor’s financial strength rating using other sources of data.
Meanwhile our portfolio finished the calendar year well.
Thanks for all of your support this year! We hope you learned a lot and are feeling more confident in your ability to analyse stocks. We’ll be back next week with Season Two of our investing podcast!!

This is my highlight show for 2020. Obviously, from an investing perspective, 2020 was all about how to handle Australia’s first recession in 30 years and a major market correction, so I’ve pulled together some of Tony’s comments on those subjects in the first half of the year. To finish off the episode, I picked a couple of clips of TK talking about the miracle of compounding and why investors need to embrace volatility.
Our guest on our final episode for 2020 is QAV Club member Damien Parker. He joined us recently to chat about his investing and business career. After a successful career in accounting and a failed property development business, Damien bounced back to write 30 business programs/manuals which grossed $50 million – and created Positive Business, the longest-running newsletter to the small-medium business community in Australia. On this episode he talks about his Business Lessons, why he put up his prices, and why he provided a 120% money-back guarantee.
