The Importance of Expectations in Investing
Play • 12 min

There is a common misconception that a good company is always a good investment. But that sometimes isn't the case. The reason for that comes down to the role that expectations play in investing. Companies with good fundamentals typically have high expectations built into their stock price, while companies with poor fundamentals typically have low expectations embedded in their price. But either way, the key for investors is identifying companies where there is a gap between expectations and reality. In this episode, we look at the importance of expectations in investing and how investors can look at this issue. We also look at some systematic ways to take advantage of the differences between expectations and reality. We hope you enjoy the discussion.

305- The Role of Shorting in the Market
“There’s nothing evil, per se, about selling things short. Short sellers—the situations in which there have been huge short interests very often—very often have been later revealed to be frauds or semi-frauds.” — Warren Buffett Short selling, or shorting, plays an important role in public markets as it improves prices, rational capital allocation, prevents bubbles, and shines a light on fraud.   If investors think a stock's price is dropping, they can short the stock. They borrow shares and sell them with hopes of buying them back at lower prices. However, stocks can theoretically keep rising, which could cause losses. So the investors that short the stock will either have to put more money up to secure their position or close their positions.   Essentially, short selling exposes which companies' stock prices are too high. In their search for overvalued firms, short-sellers can discover inconsistencies or other questionable practices before the entire market does. Short sellers can almost be regarded as the “watchdogs” of the market.   A recent example of this is the Gamestop event which caused many investors to either gain or lose money, as shorting isn’t ideal for all investors. This is why it’s important to invest with your values—so you can invest with confidence and reduce your risk of making bad investing decisions.    When looking for companies to purchase, always consider the Four Ms: meaning, moat, management, and margin of safety. This is the first step you need to take when building your watchlist of companies you are interested in.   In today’s podcast, Phil and Danielle discuss the important role short sellers play in our market and why it’s important to invest with your values.   Learn about the Four Ms and how they can help you invest in the right businesses at the right time with this FREE guide I've created for you: http://bit.ly/3btAqhM Learn more about your ad choices.

7investing Team Podcast: Mission Statements and "Bullish or Bearish"
Many businesses exist not just to create profits, but to serve a higher-level purpose. A company's mission statement lays out the ambitions it ultimately wants to achieve. It typically describes a desired improvement to the status quo: whether that be making life easier for customers, innovating with new technologies, or even seeking a bigger-picture societal impact. The mission statement can also influence how the business itself operates. It often serves as the conscience that steers acquisition or capital allocation decisions. It can set a unified company culture that impacts hiring, and can and even can be a guide for specific projects. Examples of famous mission statements include Alphabet's quest "to organize the world's information and to make it universally accessible and useful" or Chipotle's goal "to provide food with integrity." We recently put some deeper thought into what role these mission statements should play in our objective investing research. Are there specific things within them -- either good or bad -- that we should pay closer attention to when searching for stock market opportunities? In this month's 7investing Team Podcast, our advisors describe how mission statements influence their investing research. We also provide a few companies whose mission statements are particularly compelling. And in the second segment of our podcast, we play a game of "Bullish or Bearish". Each advisor shares their thoughts about recent developments in an investing space they closely follow. --- Send in a voice message: https://anchor.fm/7investing/message

ARK Enters The Bear Cave w/ Edwin Dorsey
The Value Hive Podcast is brought to you by TIKR. Join the free beta today at TIKR.com/hive. They're constantly releasing new updates that make the platform better including a new Business Owner Mode that hides share count, market cap, and enterprise value. I couldn't be more excited to partner with TIKR. This week I chat with Edwin Dorsey, founder, and author of The Bear Cave. The Bear Cave is a short-focused newsletter dedicated to finding interesting companies doing sketchy things. Edwin began his obsession with the stock market in the second grade. As we discuss in the podcast, Edwin was born to be a short seller.  Our chat covers a few key topics around short-selling, including:  * What Makes A Great Short Idea (Hint: it's not "astronomical valuation") * The Importance of Shorting in Capital Markets * ETF Mechanics & The Impact of Front-Running Redemptions The bulk of the podcast focuses on the current ARK ETF dynamics and the potential of a severe redemption event. Edwin does a fantastic job describing the inner mechanics of ETFs and why the same "rails" that drove ARK up the AUM ladder could bring them down in the blink of an eye.  Here's the timestamp:  * [1:20] Is A Short Seller Born or Made?  * [4:10] What Makes A Great Short Idea?  * [8:00] Root Insurance $ROOT * [17:05] Interning at SEC Enforcement Division * [20:23] ARK Enters The Bear Cave * [35:12] What Makes 2021 Different Than The 2020 Flash Crash?  * [44:57] Vuzix Corp $VUZI * [58:04] Future of Bear Cave Newsletter * [61:00] Closing Questions If you like what you heard and you want to learn more about Edwin, check out these resources:  * Bear Cave Newsletter * Edwin Dorsey Twitter
