Finding Diamonds in the 'Scrap Heap'

In This Episode

This week, Dan welcomes a guest who he describes as "my style of investor"... Stansberry Venture Value editor Bryan Beach.

In his newsletter, Bryan hunts for gems in the beaten-down, hated microcap sector of the market. And no one does it better than Bryan... Thanks to years of creating and auditing financial reports for the "Big Four" and software companies, he has honed his talent for uncovering opportunities within the dense terrain of Securities and Exchange Commission ("SEC") filings.

Dan and Bryan delve into a conversation about special purpose acquisition companies ("SPACs") – a topic Bryan has been covering well before the 2021 bubble popped. And he has dug deep into the "SPAC scrap heap" to uncover a few diamonds in the rough, naming a few businesses on his radar, too.

Bryan also discusses another overvalued group of stocks that's a favorite of his – Software as a Service. Then, he scrutinizes the housing market, and Dan shares his "macro" point of view on the matter.

 Finally, Bryan urges listeners to keep an open mind when investing... and to not readily dismiss the speculative side of the market...

 "I encourage our readers to be thinking about all parts of their port. There's a time to go deep in microcaps and there's a time to avoid them altogether. And everyone's situation is a little bit different. That's what I think is important...

 Pull up and look down at your portfolio. Get out of the weeds and look down at your whole portfolio... There's some part of the market that you haven't thought about in a while that you probably should think about again."
