We’re going to answer some great lists of questions we got recently, and we’re going to do our best to answer them to our full capacity. So I’m going to go ahead and turn it over to my friend, Andrew. And he’s going to go ahead and read the first question.









    Andrew: [00:00:49] Thanks, Dave, this is a long one, but that’s a good one. I’m sure we’ll have plenty of chat about it. So this one says, hello, Andrew and Dave, first off before anything, I wanted to say thank you. Thank you for your advice, education, and guidance over your podcasts. With the emphasis on education.











    I really enjoy them and look forward to them every day. Most of my stocks I’ve researched a bit. To both of your advice and mostly have my portfolio is based on a possible future outcome. The future I am basing my portfolio on is a hopeful and cleaner future. I have stocks and wind and solar manufacturers and their energy companies, along with lithium mining and lithium manufacturing.











    I’m trying to establish a good long time investment portfolio with some of these companies. And I’m looking to have some non-energy-focused stocks along with them. I currently have several. And he has some in his wet wishlists; he’s looking into dripping or double double-dipping them and basically waiting for a good time for that.











    He says I don’t have anyone to talk to about stocks. I wish I did. And don’t know how smart or incredibly stupid these decisions are or how the outlook on this investment is. I’m hoping maybe perhaps you or Dave might be able to shed some light on this or steer me in a better dir...

    Jessey (01:01):











    Yeah. Thanks again for having us on the show, by the way. Yeah, so both Kevin and I started in the land investing area. I actually started with houses first and then eventually sort of moved into investing in land. I actually met somebody by the name of Seth over at Ari tipster REO tips or.com. If you’re looking for a great blog on all things, real estate investing, land investing, that is a great resource. Seth puts out a lot of good content. Anyways, we got connected, and I eventually learned about what land investing was. And I, I took a stab at it. And w you know, within just a few weeks of hearing the term land investing, cause we can’t, we don’t have anything like that in Canada. You know, I was already profiting within my first month, so it was awesome.

    All right, folks, welcome to Investing for Beginners podcast. Tonight. We have episode 196, and tonight we will return to answering some great listener questions that we got recently. So I’m going to go ahead and read the first question I have. Hi Andrew. Thank you for all the work you and Dave put into their podcast. It’s great to have a rational voice, emphasizing the need for value investing in a field whose boots swings harder than Mr. Market. My question for you both is about the concept of economic moats. Thanks to your explanation of Buffett’s concepts. I understand to finding a great company with a wide moat is essential to value investing, but it seems like the concept of a moat can be a bit abstract for newcomers into investing. I’ve been trying to think of businesses synonymoatus with an industry like Google for search engines. Is there a formula or ratio to look for that would help someone researching a company to find the potential for a wide moat? Thank you for your help, Sam. So Andrew, what are your thoughts on Sam’s really good question.











    Andrew (01:33):











    So let’s start with maybe some of the beginner kind of explanation of what the moat is. So if you know, if you can picture a moat, basically let’s go back to the middle ages of the times when they had castles. And, back then, there was a lot of violence. People always want to steal your stuff. So you would build a castle and build really big walls to keep invaders away and be able to protect everything you’ve...

So I’m going to go ahead and start reading the first one, and then we’ll just do our usual give and take. So here we go. Hello Andrew. Hello, Dave; I love your podcast. Weren’t so much, but I still have a problem investing in certain companies. Many companies have several different stocks available. How do I decide which one to buy and where I can find a good resource, which helps me understand the differences between these stocks. Recently, it got interested in Viacom, they got three different stocks. BIAC Vic EI and BI ACP. What are those? Why do they have them? And how can I decide which one to get? Cheers, Timo. Andrew, what are your thoughts on Timo is really good question about Viacom. I know, you know, a little something about the company.











    Andrew (01:42):

And so it can be confusing cause there could be like s...
