    Betting with Options

    Betting with Options

    Last week, Phil and Danielle talked about one of the two extremes of Warren Buffett’s Investing strategies: Net-Nets. This week, the investing duo discusses the other extreme: Options. 

    As the market started booming again post World War II, Buffett found the Net-Net strategy to be extremely difficult, so he transitioned to trading options – a riskier, but higher return strategy.

    Tune in as Phil and Danielle explain everything you need to know about options trading, why it should not be considered as investing, and what is in between both of Buffett’s two investing extremes.

    The Net-Net Strategy Explained

    The Net-Net Strategy Explained

    There are two extremes of Warren Buffett’s Investing Strategies, and one of those extremes is Net-Nets.

    The Net-Net Strategy was actually developed by economist Benjamin Graham, who Buffett studied under after graduating from Columbia. The Net-Net strategy is generally seen as an extremely conservative investment strategy, and after following it throughout the great depression, Benjamin Graham saw extreme success.

    Join Phil and Danielle as they dive deeper and explain the history of Net-Nets, how and why to use them today, and briefly touch on the other extreme of Buffett’s investing strategies.

Some days I learn more than others…

Having been a long time student of Phil (workshop and a 1 year course), I can honestly say I have never been more confidant in my investing ability. His teaching style is second to none and he truly has a gift. I love the way he’s gotten me to rethink and think even more about my money and how to grow it. He’s been doing that since I saw him at a conference 10 years ago!!!

I do agree with some of my fellow reviewers though when it comes to Danielle interrupting. Many times I find myself saying out loud “please let him finish his thought!” I love the back and forth and I hope my daughter and I can have these same conversations.

I wont stop listening :)

A lot of gems, but Danielle is terrible

There is a lot of knowledge in the podcast but the daughter interrupts right when it’s about to click

Great duo

Phil Town is a great teacher & his daughter is honest about regular folks and their mindset on investing. I enjoy how Phil respects his daughter's opinion on different aspects, even when it doesn't match his rule #1 investing philosophy. One gripe I had was on one podcast Phil praises Donald Trump about how honest & great he is. That seriously makes me want to question his judgment. We all know Trump is an immoral fraud... Beside that it's a great listen for anyone willing to learn about investing.
