    The Best Investment You Can Make Is an Investment in Yourself

    The Best Investment You Can Make Is an Investment in Yourself

    This week, we're honored to bring you the inspiring tale of Gautam Baid...
    When Gautam first immigrated from India to the U.S. in 2015, he made ends meet by working a grueling graveyard shift as a hotel clerk. The nights were slow and long and monotonous. So Gautam passed the time by investing in himself. He voraciously read every finance and investment book he could get his hands on. As he tells Dan...
    Even though it was a big challenge for me intellectually, physically, culturally, and emotionally, today, in hindsight, I highly value those days of my life because for the first time... I finally got some time for myself to read and learn...
    This was the phase in my life during which I was about to realize the power of compounding knowledge.
    Gautam used this knowledge to build an "intellectual foundation in investing." And in just a few years, he propelled himself from minimum-wage night shifts to a CFA charterholder, an internationally bestselling author, a feature in Morningstar Research's Learn From the Masters series, and the founder of his own investment firm, Stellar Wealth Partners India Fund. 
    In this week's episode of the Stansberry Investor Hour, Gautam and Dan discuss his unique definition of value investing, his No. 1 strategy that works across different market cycles and macroeconomic environments, the one time he received praise directly from the Oracle of Omaha himself, and the fundamental power of investing in yourself...
    The body is limited in ways that the mind is not. By the time most people are 40 years old, their bodies begin to deteriorate. But there is no limit to the amount of growth and development that the mind can sustain. Reading keeps our minds alive and growing... Books are truly life-changing.

    The $4 Trillion Market That's Only Getting Bigger

    The $4 Trillion Market That's Only Getting Bigger

    This week, for the first time ever, Dan is featuring two guests on the show. Regular Investor Hour listeners should instantly recognize their names... Dr. David "Doc" Eifrig and Thomas Carroll. 
    Doc is an MBA, former Wall Street trader, published author, and medical doctor. (Plus, he even owns a winery.) In the Stansberry Research universe, he's the editor of Retirement Millionaire, Retirement Trader, Income Intelligence, Advanced Options, and the Health & Wealth Bulletin.
     Tom was once named by Fortune magazine as the No. 1 health care analyst in the U.S. His research has been referenced by health care publications and institutional investors alike, along with CNBC, Bloomberg, and Fox Business. And Stansberry readers know him for his investment expertise in the emerging legal cannabis market.
    In today's interview, Tom says health care is the most promising and important economic sector of the market right now...
    Some people think it's a boring sector to invest in, but I think it's paramount for every investor – for anyone who takes a self-directed or a primary interest in how they're investing their money. They have to know and have some exposure to health care. It's a $4 trillion market that's only getting bigger. It goes up each and every year. 
    That's why he and Doc recently joined forces with John Engel – a former biochemist and one of Stansberry's resident biotechnology experts – to launch a new research product, Prosperity Investor.
    In this monthly advisory, the powerhouse team shares the best of the current industry stalwarts, next-generation medicine, emerging digital-health solutions, and much more.
    On the show, Doc and Tom also share some of the biggest trends in the space. You'll hear about advancements in telemedicine, breakthrough research in immunology, and navigating the complexities in managed care.
    Lastly, you won't want to miss the duo's final bit of advice for listeners... a nugget that Dan – once he removed his jaw from the floor – called "one of the best, most actionable answers ever given in the history of the show."

    It's OK to Be Wrong

    It's OK to Be Wrong

    This week, Dan brings a fresh voice to the show: seasoned value investor Gary Mishuris. 
    Gary is currently the managing partner and chief investment officer of Silver Ring Value Partners, an investment firm that focuses on long-term intrinsic value investing. He has more than two decades of portfolio and asset-management experience plus degrees in computer science and economics from the Massachusetts Institute of Technology ("MIT")... which is where he received the advice that shaped his career.
    Gary used to make rookie investor mistakes – like losing his shirt after putting all his money into a hot stock that tanked. But when Warren Buffett came to speak at Gary's alma mater, his words put the ambitious young man on a path to learn value investing instead of "gambling around with tech stocks."
    Today, Gary has his own priceless advice to share with our listeners, such as keeping a well-diversified and allocated portfolio. He warns against blindly chasing the price action and stubbornly allocating half of one's portfolio to the biggest position... 
    I would say the goal there is to make sure that no one position can really sink the ship... It's good to have conviction, but you need to make sure that your process over time – which drives the outcome – is not in any one position.
    But having conviction isn't entirely a terrible thing. As he explains, it's all about maintaining the "delicate balance"... 
    You have to be sufficiently flexible to adjust to the reality of the changes but have sufficient conviction... [so] you don't fall to the market's pressure.
    During their conversation, Dan and Gary delve deep into the common psychological pitfalls that can come with investing. Gary also discusses the importance of exercising caution by playing "behavioral defense" amid a sea of folks who too often rely on "behavioral offense." He even shares his proprietary "thesis tracker" – a unique way to evaluate the performance of every investment in your portfolio.
     Finally, Gary leaves us with the No. 1 trait he says every investor should have: humility...
    You want to be humble in this business... Base your approach on humility and then work really hard from a position that you can be wrong a lot, and then build that being wrong into everything.

    Finding Diamonds in the 'Scrap Heap'

    Finding Diamonds in the 'Scrap Heap'

    This week, Dan welcomes a guest who he describes as "my style of investor"... Stansberry Venture Value editor Bryan Beach.
    In his newsletter, Bryan hunts for gems in the beaten-down, hated microcap sector of the market. And no one does it better than Bryan... Thanks to years of creating and auditing financial reports for the "Big Four" and software companies, he has honed his talent for uncovering opportunities within the dense terrain of Securities and Exchange Commission ("SEC") filings.
    Dan and Bryan delve into a conversation about special purpose acquisition companies ("SPACs") – a topic Bryan has been covering well before the 2021 bubble popped. And he has dug deep into the "SPAC scrap heap" to uncover a few diamonds in the rough, naming a few businesses on his radar, too.
    Bryan also discusses another overvalued group of stocks that's a favorite of his – Software as a Service. Then, he scrutinizes the housing market, and Dan shares his "macro" point of view on the matter.
     Finally, Bryan urges listeners to keep an open mind when investing... and to not readily dismiss the speculative side of the market...
     "I encourage our readers to be thinking about all parts of their port. There's a time to go deep in microcaps and there's a time to avoid them altogether. And everyone's situation is a little bit different. That's what I think is important...
     Pull up and look down at your portfolio. Get out of the weeds and look down at your whole portfolio... There's some part of the market that you haven't thought about in a while that you probably should think about again."

    'You Ain't Seen Nothing Yet'

    'You Ain't Seen Nothing Yet'

    Today's guest last joined Dan at the Investor Hour table when the world was in the throes of a newly declared pandemic. This time, he visits us amid rampant inflation... a newly declared bear market... and likely a nascent recession.
    Doug is the founder of Casey Research and a prolific writer with several highly acclaimed books under his belt. His financial book Crisis Investing was a New York Times No. 1 bestseller for weeks, dethroning the works of heavyweights such as economist Milton Friedman, former President Richard Nixon, and astronomer Carl Sagan.
    Doug isn't afraid to let loose on controversial topics like the Second Amendment and the police. And he doesn't mince words when it comes to Uncle Sam... 
    I despise politics... Politics is actually institutionalized coercion. It's all about the government and who runs it. The government is an entity that holds a gun to your head – subtly or overtly – and tells you to do what you're told.
    Increasingly, American life is revolving around the state, the government, and what it does... That's putting people at odds with each other. 
    Thanks to Big Brother's excessive intervention throughout the years, Doug says, "The entire country has been greatly over-financialized... It's all going to come crashing down." He decries the U.S. Federal Reserve's heavy-handed plays and longs for a "stable, capitalist free market society."
    And as for Dan's customary Final Question, Doug says rather than an "instant cosmic breakthrough," he'd like to leave listeners with a short-but-sweet, positive affirmation...
    Don't sweat the small stuff... Just try to live an ethical life. Try to be happy, try to be mellow, and things will take care of themselves.

    Scouring the Earth for Great Ideas

    Scouring the Earth for Great Ideas

    This week, Dan introduces a brand-new guest to Stansberry Investor Hour... But he's no stranger to Stansberry Research.
    Dave Lashmet, colleague and editor of Stansberry Venture Technology, joins Dan for a fast-paced talk on innovation, technology, and, of course, investing. His Venture Technology service uses a "venture capitalist" investing approach and focuses on biotechnology firms. And according to Dan, Dave is "well known as a man who scours the Earth for great ideas," thanks to his boots-on-the-ground research and networking at countless conferences and meetings.
    The two dive into Stansberry Research's history – including how founder Porter Stansberry actually hired Dave after meeting him in college... where Dave was Porter's professor. And Dave also regales Dan with tales of his former job as a self-described "mix between an engineer and a businessperson inside a tech company."
    Dan also commends Dave for his recent recommendation to Venture Technology subscribers to sell their remaining stake in Nvidia (NVDA) for an eye-popping 1,400% return. And Dave gives an in-depth analysis of the biggest risks to the company, ranging from overseas geopolitical tensions to direct competitors like Intel (INTC). 
    He also offers insights on the dichotomy between venture capitalists and "angel investors" and reveals exactly what he looks for in a company. Finally, he shares what investors should watch out for when researching prospective portfolio candidates.

pear guy ,


Love your podcast, never miss it. I’m a lifetime subscriber and am invested in all your recommendations ( no pressure). Your trade stop guys love for Disney drives me loco, woke leaders are destroying that company and he has blinders on to what the company used to be! Leadership matters and Disney had exactly the wrong kind! Keep up the good work, Farmer Dan

Moderate Man Dan ,


The most recent episode (and others) lack any real data or facts and often stray from investing towards libertarian, conservative viewpoints and often bigotry.


Trying to sell subscription. Poor knowledge

Last podcast guest was no expert. He may have had some lucky trades but knows nothing about biotech. He thinks he can learn new things going to medical conferences. What a joke.
