    Mitchell Atkins - Magnolia Mitch | Treating investing like a business

    Mitchell Atkins - Magnolia Mitch | Treating investing like a business

    Have you heard the term "sheep money"? Mitchell Atkins explains that it's the Twitter guys, the followers, the pumpers and the dumpers that can change the market dramatically. He reckons that you'll see an IPO (a company listing to the stock exchange), and it will have advisers and brokers creating amazing hype. The razzle as Mitchell calls it. Then the company starts to trend on social media and boom, everyone sells out, the share price tanks, and the poor retail investors (the sheep) lose out. It was a pleasure discussing this and other insights with the micro-cap fund manager of the year Mitchell Atkins (@Magnolia_Mitch) / Twitter
    Hit him up on Twitter - he's happy to talk about his ideas and answering investing questions. https://twitter.com/Magnolia_Mitch
