Investing for beginners

I’ve been paddling in the shallow end of the Australian Stock Exchange for a few years with not much idea what I was doing. But since finding it I have been listening to as many episodes of this podcast as I can every day. I now feel way more confident and have learnt some valuable lessons. Especially the value of dividends! Love it. Thanks guys

Great way to learn about value investing

I’m a 21 year old from Aus who’s trying to learn as much as possible about value investing. This podcast is a fantastic way to both learn the fundamentals and also see how they apply to current events as they happen (writing at the time of coronavirus). Big thanks to Dave and Andrew - keep it up guys!
