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.
Transcript available soon.
In our first episode of 2021, we review our portfolio’s CY20 performance; margin loan rates; What TK does on a daily/weekly basis for managing his portfolio; relative QAV performance of large vs mid vs small cap companies; the ‘minimum’ amount of stock someone just getting started should buy; fudging ECX and VUK; whether or not we should rebalance every so often; Tony’s views on CSL; the recent drop in the prices of some gold miners; understanding the formula in column BK of the master checklist; why companies can have a quality score of >100%; and Stock Doctor problems regarding reporting of director holdings.
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.
