Eric Schleien hosts the September Roundtable for Finance Podcast Week. Join Eric Schleien, host of the Intelligent Investing Podcast, with Andrew Sather and Jason Rivera for a jam packed hour long finance roundtable.
Eric Schleien Discusses Real Estate Stocks
In this episode, Eric Schleien sits down with Andrew Sather and Jason Rivera to discuss two real estate stocks.
- Laaco Ltd (LAACZ), which owns the Los Angeles Athletic Club and has a Self-Storage Business.
- Cedar Realty Trust (CDR), which owns grocery anchored retail outlets across the United States.
Eric Schleien believes that both of these are cheap real estate stocks that would be some of the best picks for 2021. Both of these stocks are special situations as it is likely that both of these will be selling core assets for a higher price than the current market value. In Cedar’s case, they may sell the entire company. With Laaco, they may sell their self-storage business at what would almost certainly be a higher price than the current market price if they were to get a fair valuation on the assets.
Eric Schleien Discusses Modern Value Investing
One of the things that Eric points out during the roundtable is that modern GAAP accounting isn’t always appropriate for companies such as Amazon (AMZN) or Trupanion (TRUP) to show true value of the business. For example, Amazon’s R&D expense he believes is an asset even though it gets run through the income statement as an expense.

Jason Rivera Discusses Altria Stock
During the episode Jason Rivera discusses Altria (MO) as a potential value investment due to the stability of the business mixed with a high dividend yield. Jason believes that Altria is a better inflation hedge than buying TIPS.
