This is an episode where we dissect the anatomy of a long-term investment using Stamps.com's case study. Most long-term investments share a few characteristics. Some are logical, and some are counter-intuitive. But, knowing what's common among the companies worthy of a point in your long-term portfolio will help you avoid panic-selling when the stock market and the companies in your portfolio experience a price-fall. Talking about a stock price-fall, Stamps.com is such a company.
In this episode, we again have the pleasure of hosting Jeffrey Leichenger whom you may remember from the earlier episodes. We also appreciate Scott M. Wright, who is a long-time Stamps.com's customer and we found him on the company's Facebook page. He agreed to share his experience with Stamps.com's products and services. We also used the public video interview with Stamps.com's employee, Carlos, on the company's YouTube channel. Here is a detail list of the sources we used to produce this episode:
This episode of Renegade Investors podcast is our Halloween edition. It's the day after the Halloween, and we put together a spooky episode with the help of our guest, Jeffrey Leichenger. He is one of the moderators of our Intelligent Stock Market Investors Facebook Group, and he shares the story of the dark side of trading commission-free with apps such as Robinhood. As usual, there are several aha moments in the conversation with Jeffrey that you don't want to miss. Hearing the real investing stories of fellow stock market investors helps all of us avoid mistakes and stay on course. If you are wondering, I've also played the Buy/Sell/Hold game with Jeffrey. Don't miss out!
P.S., Apologies to Jeffrey for talking about his hobby of fantasy hockey at around minute 4:20 of the show, but calling it fantasy football. Not sure what my Canadian friends and family have to say about that! A Canadian mixing up hockey and football! Shame on me! ;)
