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

Talking interest rates and volatility - Steve Sosnick joins Alpha Trader
This week’s Alpha Trader podcast features hosts Aaron Task and Stephen Alpher speaking with Steve Sosnick, chief strategist at Interactive Brokers. The biggest issue on many market-watchers’ attention right now is the rise in long-term interest rates, which last week sped up to a gallop. Keeping it simple, Sosnick says to pay attention to the Fed, which has tied its extraordinary accommodation to the return of a combination of full employment and inflation. In normal times, the move higher in the 10-year yield - only a large handful of basis points at the moment - might not merit a mention, but the problem now, says Sosnick, is the stretched valuations on everything from stocks to commodities to bitcoin. As with his previous appearance on Alpha Trader, Sosnick is keeping a close eye on volatility. Headed into last week, he noticed the VIX futures curve as quite steep, wondered what traders were so nervous about, and suggested a sell signal was at hand. While the curve has flattened a bit, it's not to the point where Sosnick believes markets are out of the woods. One risk not many are focused on: April 15. Sosnick notes there are a lot of new entrants into markets, many of whom made big gains last year, and might find themselves with an unexpectedly large tax bill. There’s plenty more, including why elevated volatility (and hence higher options prices) isn’t going away, and Sosnick’s view on Bitcoin.

Academic Research Spotlight: Replicating Anomalies by Lu Zhang, Chen Xue and Kewei Hou
In this episode, we are trying something new. There is so much academic research out there about markets, and what drives their returns over time, that it can be very difficult for investors to keep up with all of it. So we are going to start highlighting some of our favorite academic papers each month and breaking down their key lessons.  We start with paper Replicating Anomalies by Lu Zhang, Chen Xue and Kewei Hou. In this paper, the authors examined 452 stock market anomalies to see how they held up once the impact of micro-cap stocks was reduced. We summarize the findings from the paper and what they mean for investors.  We hope you enjoy the discussion.  DIRECT LINK TO REPLICATING ANOMALIES PAPER Replicating Anomalies by Kewei Hou, Chen Xue, Lu Zhang :: SSRN ABOUT THE PODCAST Excess Returns is an investing podcast hosted by Jack Forehand (@practicalquant) and Justin Carbonneau (@jjcarbonneau), partners at Validea.
