Summary

It's time again for another Trupanion (TRUP) episode as there's been another writeup on the company that completely misunderstands their business in my opinion. For my other episode on Trupanion where I made a rebuttal to Todd Wenning at Ensemble Capital which you can listen to here.

Join Eric Schleien in this Q&A format as he answers questions on short positions, investment strategies, destroying your own conclusions on business and investments, and so much more. When asked about the mistakes he's made with investments and what can be learned from them, Eric expounds on what he thinks is a rear-view mirror thinking and on how he managed to lose more money to areas of omission than commission. 

Summary

While it's common for others to work on becoming large firms, Eric's unique gameplay is to stay boutique and manageable. For Eric, it's not necessarily rejecting growth. Instead, it's more about being able to hold control and balance on different elements. When you're running multiple large funds, it will reach a point where you start losing the competitive advantage by becoming too large, he explains.

In this episode, the group also brings up the relevance of Environmental and Social Trends in determining the long-term value of companies. Quoting from Brookfield Asset Management CEO Bruce Flatt, "It's not a good business to not be a good steward of the environment.", for Eric, if a business is taking steps to have an adaptable and inclusive culture – value is quickly elevated. Even though it's not the end-all-be-all, for Eric, when a business does good in proving its CSR, it helps contribute to building a competitive advantage and value in the long run.

Join Eric Schleien with today's interview guest, Julian Lin, as they discuss the different names in the country's cannabis industry and the stocks he entered and exited in light of the pandemic. For some of these companies, leaving the pandemic with so much debt and having to spend so much for redevelopment isn't going to be an excellent spot to have.

Summary

In this episode, Julian also talks about the presence of Canadian cannabis brands in American markets. Despite them being 'okay,' because they're the only names people can invest in when in America, the evaluations of these brands coming from across the border remain to sore insanely. Nonetheless, cannabis brands have challenges unique to them in general.

Julian acknowledges that when you look at these companies, they scream expensive. In reality, if cannabis is decriminalized and is not to pay a particular type of tax in the future anymore, their shares will trade at multiple folds in earnings. For Julian, the macro picture for cannabis is all promising in the next 2-4 years.

The GameStop short took many by surprise and brought the world of short selling into the mainstream. Join us for this in-depth panel moderated by Eric Schleien of the Intelligent Investing Podcast with Jake McClure of The Personal Wealth Coach Podcast and Rick Bloom from Rick Bloom Talks Money on the nuances of what actually happened, and how all the pieces fit together.

Eric Schleien's Book

Thank you for supporting the podcast. My new book, Principles of Power, is now on Amazon. I would be incredibly grateful and humbled for a purchase with an honest review.

About Principles of Power

"Principles of Power can be related to as an advanced Coaching Handbook for Leaders. 
If you are a leader, an aspiring leader, a coach, consultant, or program facilitator, this book is designed for you. The material is delivered inside of a modern leadership context of service and contribution. 
Eric features many partnerships in Principles of Power. His inclusion of useful quotes from Warren Buffett, Charlie Munger, Werner Erhard, Nassim Taleb, Seth Godin, and many other leaders attests to the thinking and the research that went into the writing of this book. 
It is now undeniable that the understanding and implementation of powerful Listening, authentic Relationship, and a recognizable Permission to Lead, are cardinal distinctions of effective leadership. 
The word, ’cardinal’ has a Latin root and means ‘hinge’ – like a hinge on a gate. So, like a hinge, cardinal distinctions are connected to every nuance of leadership. You will see these distinctions in action in the background of Eric’s many leadership conversations. 
Authentic Relationship, for example, is essential to the effectiveness and empowerment of the participants and the leader. If authentic Relationship is missing, any outcome or result devolves to the result of domination or force, and is not an outcome of effective leadership.
Consider this: Leadership is granted by the permission of those being led. Take a moment and allow that to sink in.

The job of the leader is that of an environmentalist, providing the space for people to collaborate, flourish, and create. These two different activities, management and leadership are often commingled, especially in business schools and in the workplace. They are distinct and operate under different rules and measures. It’s like Checkers and Chess – Same game board, different games with different rules and outcomes.
Disentangling and distinguishing the two arenas of activity grants power to both managers and leaders.
 So, the fundamental exercise of listening for people’s greatness is in the background of every sentence in this book. And there is much more…
Principles of Power is strongly influenced by the transformational work of Werner Erhard. Much of the author’s thinking is also grounded in the classic distinctions of Tribal Leadership and the thinking of Warren Buffett and his partner, Charlie Munger. 
Those, plus Eric’s own extensive practical experience renders Principles of Power to be an extremely useful ‘go-to’ resource, filled with useful, implementable information, sprinkled liberally with memorable quotations from intelligent diverse sources – all apt and worth adding to YOUR leadership lexicon."

- John King, co-author of Tribal Leadership

Join Eric Schleien with today's interview guest, Trey Henninger, as they talk about Entercom, Northfield Precision, and the new SEC rule that impacts dark companies and small businesses. By taking a close look at the outcomes and probabilities close to ETC and the merger made with CBS Radio, he explains what Entercom holds for the next 12-18 months and tells us the technicalities on why he thinks owning shares from the company can still end up positively.

Summary

In this episode, Trey will also be getting into all the old news, the expected, and the good with Northfield Precision Instrument Corp. Listen as he discusses the company's performance during the pandemic, their ROI report, and how NFPC will seemingly be affected by the new SEC rule that targets dark companies. For Trey, once the new regulation comes into effect in the following months or years, going expert or grey may become an option to be considered for Northfield.

Going in further on the upcoming SEC rule, tune in as Trey explains what the regulation aims to do, what it requires from business entities, how it can backfire, and what it means to trade without a quoted price –a scenario that may just mean good deals for experts. For him, there are always as many opportunities in matters like these as there are risks in every leverage.

 

About Trey Henninger:

Trey Henninger runs the blog and podcast DIY Investing. Trey is a private value investor focused on microcap and dark stocks in the United States. His focus is on high-quality companies with predictable, durable earnings where management has skin-in-the-game.

Trey runs a concentrated portfolio of 5 stocks with a 20% weighting each. By focusing on small companies, Trey hopes to find overlooked compounders at value prices. His favorite opportunities have a market cap below $50 million.

 

Outline of the episode:

  • [00:42] Entercom Communications – America's #2 Radio Broadcasting Company.
  • [02:18] ETC as a radio company and as a growing digital audio presence.
  • [02:49] The crashing merger of ETC and CBS Radio.
  • [03:46] Binary outcomes and the probabilities for the company now.
  • [06:55] What the debt market is telling about it.
  • [08:03] Covid as an excuse...; The company's ownership.
  • [09:49] A business with no assets, basically.
  • [13:09] Bad as expected – Northfield Precision
  • [15:54] What SEC Rule is, not retail investor-friendly.
  • [16:40] How the new regulation can backfire – a theory!
  • [18:25] What it means to not get quoted a price…
  • [19:45] Anytime you have leverage, there's risk and also lots of opportunities.
