In this episode, Eric Schleien & Anthony Waldichuk discuss National Stockyards (NSYC). 
 
According to Oddball Stocks:
 
Here's the backstory. A long time ago in a faraway place, there was a company that owned stockyards.  A stockyard is a place where cattle are auctioned off to buyers.  Ranchers drive their cattle by horse, or train, or truck to the stockyard at pre-determined dates when auctions are held.  Cattle buyers come and purchase the ingredients for your burgers and steaks and the ranchers return home without cattle, but with pockets full of cash.

The company was established in the 1870s in Oklahoma.  The date and place invoke images of cowboys and Indians, saloons and western movies.  Those days are long gone and the company now consists of three things, their Oklahoma stockyard that's still transacting cattle, a plot of empty land near St. Louis, and an ownership interest in a golf course.

In this episode, Eric Schleien & Anthony Waldichuk discuss Scope Industries (SCPJ). Company is super under the radar. The CEO has been at the helm for 6 decades and has built a pretty good long-term track record as a value investor. Was amazed that I had never heard of him before this episode. Totally interesting stuff! Anthorny refers to the CEO as the Poor Man's Warren Buffett.

 

Hope you enjoy!

Avoca, LLC (AVOA) is a publicly traded, non-reporting limited partnership that owns a 16,000-acre island off the coast of New Orleans. They have a few side businesses, some potential use for the land, and have a stock and bond portfolio worth the market cap. These dark companies are fun!

In this episode, Eric Schleien & Anthony Waldichuk discuss Ojai Oil Company (OJOC). 

Anthony started out as a trader for what is now TD Ameritrade Institutional’s trading desk, moved onto LPL Financial where he traded equities, then moved over to trade fixed income instruments.

Then moved to the buy-side as a portfolio manager for Neosho Capital LLC, where he focused on international and emerging market equities. 

Retired in 2016 to oversee his real estate portfolio, but still dabbles in the stock market occasionally, mostly in the inefficient micro-cap space.

He can be followed on Twitter at @darkfirecapital

In this episode, I interview a guy know by the handle, "Spekulatius". This is our second guest who would prefer to stay anonymous - and as always, I honor that commitment to privacy.

We talk about an obscure OTC company he owns called Queen City Investments (QUCT). For those of you who follow Nate Tobik who runs Oddball Stocks, he did a writeup on the company back in 2012 which you can see here.
