I can’t believe we’re already here but this is the last episode of 2019 and Season 9 of the Mo’ Money Podcast! And what better way to end it than with an episode all about value investing with New York Times bestselling author Danielle Town.
Although I’ve done a ton of episodes on the podcast on investing, if you’re a long-time listener then you may have found that most of the guests I have on the show tend to say pretty much the same things: keep fees low, diversify and invest in low-cost index funds or index ETFs. Not Danielle! As a value investor following the path of Warren Buffet and Charlie Munger, she has an altogether different strategy for reaching financial independence. Instead of buying investment products that replicate a broad market index, she believes in investing in just a few stocks strategically, buying low, holding on to them, then eventually selling them when they are priced high to earn a nice profit.
There’s obviously quite a bit to know about value investing, and in my opinion, it is an advanced investment strategy that is not easily carried out. That being said, I find it incredibly fascinating and an important strategy to understand when learning about different ways to invest your money. I’m still a huge fan of indexing, but I’m not gonna lie, I’m definitely going to look more into doing some value investing for a small portion of my overall investment portfolio and see how things go. And luckily Danielle’s book breaks the strategy down in a very easy-to-understand way.
