    The Truth About Dividend Investing

    The Truth About Dividend Investing

    Investors love dividends. They like them for their potential to beat the market. They like them for the income they provide. Some even like them because of their perceived safety. But the reality of all of those things is a little bit different than the common perception. When you look at each of the benefits that buying high yield stocks provides, you will typically find that there is a better way to accomplish that same thing using an alternative approach. 

    In this episode, we look at the realities of investing in dividend paying stocks and how that differs from what many investors believe. 

    We hope you enjoy the discussion.

    The Underrated Role of Behavior in Investing with Joe Wiggins

    The Underrated Role of Behavior in Investing with Joe Wiggins

    Sometimes as investors we tend to focus their efforts on the wrong things. We will spend a lot of time building complicated strategies. We will focus on trying to beat the market. We will trade when there is no need to. But in doing this we will often miss what is usually the biggest driver of our returns: our own behavior. 

    In this episode, we speak to Joe Wiggins, author of the Behavioural Investment blog about the detrimental effect our behavior can have on our investing returns, and some ways we can improve that. 

    We hope you enjoy the discussion.

    The Biggest Lessons From Our First 100 Episodes

    The Biggest Lessons From Our First 100 Episodes

    When we started our podcast in 2019, we were hoping we could create something that would be educational and informative for people who follow our content. But one of the biggest surprises for us is how much we have learned ourselves. 

    We have been fortunate to interview some of the smartest investors we know, and each interview has taught us something new and expanded our understanding of some complex and interesting concepts. To celebrate our 100th episode, we have pulled together our favorite clips from the 28 interviews we have done so far to extract the lessons from them. 

    We would like to thank everyone who took the time to listen to us through our first 100 episodes. We look forward to the next 100.

    Rob Arnott on Inflation, Bubbles and the Future of Value Investing

    Rob Arnott on Inflation, Bubbles and the Future of Value Investing

    Although the word unprecedented tends to be overused, we are seeing many things in the market currently that many of us haven't seen before. Fiscal stimulus has increased to levels that truly are unprecedented, inflation may become an issue for the first time in a long time, and many investors are arguing the fundamentals don't matter anymore  

    This week, we are fortunate to be joined by Research Affiliates founder Rob Arnott to help us work through all of it. We discuss the implications of government stimulus, how to identify bubbles in advance and the future of value investing, among many other topics. 

    We hope you enjoy the discussion.
