Christian Olesen - Two Investment Ideas: An Arbitrage Opportunity + An Undervalued Sector in an Expensive Market
Feb 16th, 2018 by Eric Schleien
Eric Schleien interviews Christian Olesen who runs the Olesen Value Fund. Christian has done quite well during a time that's been tough on most value investors.
In this episode Christian shares how he runs the fund, his methodology, and shares two investment ideas. One is a possible arbitrage opportunity and another is an undervalued large cap that seems to be part of a very forgotten and unloved sector during this bull market.
Hope you enjoy!
