    Netflix

    After a long-awaited couple of weeks, this week on InvestED, Phil and Danielle are digging into the big investing question mark: Netflix.
    On the surface, the technology and entertainment company seems to be doing well, however, there’s one big elephant in the room: it doesn’t have free cash flow.
    This is a huge red flag in the world of Rule #1 Investing, and something that typically leads Warren Buffett and Charlie Munger to avoid investing in a company. But that doesn’t necessarily mean Netflix isn’t a good investment opportunity.
    Join Phil and Danielle this week as they dig into how to understand a complicated company like Netflix and how to decide if it’s the right investment for your portfolio and long-term success.

    From the Vault: Warren Buffett's Inflation Principles

    In today’s episode, Danielle discussed words of wisdom on inflation shared from the letters of Warren Buffett.

    In the letters, you’ll learn Buffet’s warnings to other investors that we do not know what will happen with the stock market or the underlying currency, and that long-term fixed interest bonds may not continue to serve as a financial instrument and may even become obsolete.

Please fix the sound mixing.

Lots of great information on the show. My only request is for you to PLEASE FIX the sound levels. I have to turn up the volume to here Phil speak and then my ears get blasted when an ad suddenly comes in at a much higher volume. Please fix this. I’ve had to stop listening to the pod on my walks because of this.
