Hamish Douglass: On the Hunt for Super-Compounding Stocks
Our guest this week is Hamish Douglass.

Among his duties, Douglass is lead manager of the Magellan Global Equity strategy, which is a concentrated portfolio of high-quality growth stocks.

While it feels like domestic priorities have been in the spotlight for months, global concerns can’t be dismissed. Jeff Kleintop, Schwab’s chief global investment strategist, joins host Mike Townsend to discuss international activity with implications for U.S. markets. From U.S.-China relations to the outlook for President Biden’s relationship with allies across Europe to prospects for emerging markets in 2021, Jeff helps shine a light on where the potential opportunities are for investors. Mike also shares his thoughts on the progress and timing of the latest economic stimulus bill, Washington’s new focus on the recent retail trading frenzy led by GameStop, Janet Yellen’s comments on tax increases in the administration’s next big bill, and the growing chatter about a possible delay in the April 15 tax deadline. _WashingtonWise Investor_ is an original podcast from Charles Schwab.

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.
