In this week’s episode of “The Capitalist Investor,” Derek, Luke, and Tony focus on Snap’s latest profit forecast and how the social media company’s report sent the ma...

In Episode #127 of “The Capitalist Investor,” Derek and Luke analyze several companies' earnings reports and different cost trends they see in their everyday lives. The guys touch on...

Wall Street believes there’s only a 50 percent chance of a recession. And if that recession takes place, it would be in 2023, a short and shallow one. We completely disagree. In Episode #126 of “The Capitalist Investor,” Mark, Derek, and Tony don’t question the odds of a recession but what the bubble will be that bursts and unwinds it. This week’s episode begs the question: what looks weird right now? In 2000 it was the tech stocks...

A golfer’s most useful tool is course management –– it allows them to plan ahead, set their eyes on a specific score and work backwards to reach it. It’s not about getting birdies, but avoiding those double bogeys. Golf is about course management, the stock market is about risk management; right now it’s time to avoid mistakes and just keep the ball in the fairway. This week, Mark is joined by Luke and Tony as they discuss all the ...

Elon Musk transfixed Twitter once again. But in a new type of way he’s ever done before. How will Elon change the scope of social media now that he’s taken a position and will serve as a board member for Twitter? He’s shown his power and what he’s capable of, hopefully he’s capable of finally bringing an edit button to the world. This week, Derek, Luke, and Tony cover the niche topics and events of the week and fill in on the news ...

Which scenario is real, which is false? A) Meme stocks like GameStop and AMC are currently outperforming the market substantially. B) A leading actor slapped a comedian on stage, on live TV, and won his first ever Oscar Award on that same stage not long afterwards. 

Trick question, both events are real. We may be living in a very unpredictable world, but we’re able to at least predict what the news you’re reading looks like.  If the...

Recession, this. Recession, that. The word keeps popping up everywhere; in headlines, on the news, and on social media. When you hear the word “recession” does it send a shiver up your spine? People fear recessions. Or do they fear what they often allude to? Episode #119 of “The Capitalist Investor,” is all about the good, bad, and ugly that comes with recessions. The guys also touch on IRS tax refunds as well as what we’re current...

Maybe Tom Brady tried to fill up his 2015 Rolls Royce Ghost last week and that’s why he came out of retirement. Joking. But it’s time to confront gas prices or the narrative around them for that matter. This week, Mark, Derek and Luke tackle a slew of topics that in one way or another, relate to public relations and marketing tactics. From the White House drafting TikTok stars to control political narratives, all the way to Tom Bra...

What does fantasy football and stocks have in common? Constant managing, risk assessment and always scouting out other teams and players. This week, the guys are scouring the market for beaten down stocks that have a chance to be redeemed. Salvageable stocks won’t pop overnight though, and it takes a willing investor and someone who is patient enough to dive in and wait it through. In Episode #117 of “The Capitalist Investor,” Mark...

President Biden’s Tuesday night State of the Union Address was an hour-long event of “politics as usual.” He spoke roughly over 6,400 words –– but we want to pay attention to the words he didn’t say and the issues he didn’t address. Although at least 20 minutes of the speech were filled with applause lines, it didn’t distract the guys from what was missing: tangible solutions to inflation, plans on energy independency, and accounta...

We're always thinking about where the market, its industries and the world are currently standing. But we can’t let that distract us from thinking of where it can stand one month, six months, or even a year from now. This week, Mark, Derek and Luke sit down and summarize where everything lies today and how it can change: tax rates, laws, mortgage rates, the housing market and just overall the social-political climate which we’r...

If the Rams win the Super Bowl this Sunday, will Odell Beckham Jr. convert his Super Bowl bonus into Bitcoin? What will Tom Brady do after retiring from 30 years of football? With average ticket prices around $10,000, Brady could buy over half of the Super Bowl seats with just a fraction of his total net worth –– of course if he misses it that much already. This week, Derek, Luke, and Tony talk plays and strategies: the risks that ...

It’s hard to get away from politics; it’s within our music, media, sports, money –– politics drives everything. From Neil Young’s crusade against Spotify and Joe Rogan to Joe Biden’s pointless remarks on reporters, Derek and Luke reveal that there’s no shortage of political discourse that makes us reflect on the world we live in. And the world we live in is not the same anymore, politically or financially. Last week, we saw an unbe...

To the eye they look simple, but the deeper they go,...
