Dan Ferris joins the Stansberry Investor Hour to tell you about the safest way to invest your money in the stock market. He and Porter recall the very first idea that launched Dan’s Extreme Value newsletter with a classic illustration of value investing which would make Warren Buffett and Benjamin Graham proud. Dan shows you why seemingly boring companies can be investments that allow you to sleep well at night, but also have the potential to double or triple your money.
John Gillin from the Stansberry NewsWire service joins Buck for a review of all the best and worst technologies he recently saw at the 2018 Consumer Electronics Show (CES) in Las Vegas. VR shopping, dual-screen cell phones, and autonomous vehicles were some of the big themes on display. John tells you when you can expect a driverless car to pick you up in front of your house, or see a long-haul truck on the highway with no one at the wheel.
Listeners write in about the false missile warning in Hawaii, the use of blockchain technology in the options market, and the three cocktail recipes Porter and Buck can use for any occasion.
1:59: Buck and Porter introduce Dan Ferris, senior editor and analyst for the Extreme Value newsletter published by Stansberry Research. Porter explains how Dan has been with Stansberry Research from the beginning and that the type of value investing Dan does is the very opposite of what’s popular, but is really what most people should do.
6:08: Porter explains value investing and tells you why it’s the absolute safest way to invest in equities. Dan and Porter recall the very first value idea they had together that launched Extreme Value back in 2000. It was a cash gushing catalog clothing retailer selling for 2x earnings that was an easy double once it’s value was fully realized.
9:26: Porter tells you the one criteria required to make an Extreme Value recommendation. Dan describes his latest pick as the only stock in the world you need to own right now. In a world where every market seems to be fully valued, Dan and his team at Extreme Value have found one stock in a hated industry that could be the next double or triple.
12:57: Dan tells you why one of his tops picks in Extreme Value, Altius Minerals, is still in the portfolio today after first being recommended in 2009. And it’s still compounding at about 10% per year.
15:35: Stocks are high today – so what would be on Dan’s “buy list” in a sudden bear market full of stocks on sale? Dan reveals the #1 stock he’d love to get back into, and why “I sold because I’m stupid.” Even though he made over 600% for his Extreme Value subscribers.
22:47: Dan tells you about one of the most visible and easy ways to spot companies that are on sale, but also make great decisions and have favorable prospects for growth.
24:52: Buck talks with John Gillin of the Stansberry Newswire about what he saw out at the recent 2018 Consumer Electronics Show (CES) in Las Vegas. John tells you about the one technology he saw at CES that he would put in his home tomorrow. John also tells us that Uber was meeting with the FAA at CES is working on a business to take you everywhere, and it has nothing to do with automobiles.
33:38: Jesse writes in with a question about the recent false missile warning in Hawaii. More than just government employee incompetence?
36:50 Porter asks Buck for his take on the “shi*hole” brouhaha, and Buck explains the political rationale behind this – there’s a reason Democrats are fanning these flames as the battle for DACA begins.
43:27: Porter answers a listener’s question about blockchain and the potential role this technology could play in the options market. Porter reveals the name of a company that is wholly owned by Overstock.com and is building solutions to leverage and service blockchain technologies.
45:10: Marcus writes in with some cocktail recommendations for Porter and Buck and shares a recipe for Blood and Sand.
