    Having the 'Capacity to Suffer'

    Today, Dan welcomes first-time Investor Hour guest Steve Gorelik to the show. A 15-plus-year veteran of Firebird Management, Steve currently manages the Firebird U.S. Value Fund. And as a native Belarusian, there's no one better suited to manage Firebird's Eastern Europe and Russia funds as well.  The big question Dan asks Steve is how he has been handling the funds amid the Russia-Ukraine war. Steve shares his thoughts on Russia's investment prospects and the ruble's volatility. And he explains that, surprisingly, many Eastern European companies present very robust investment opportunities – as long as the countries' macroeconomics look good.  When it comes to doing the legwork on researching a prospective addition to your portfolio, Steve emphasizes that you shouldn't just look at how a company makes money... Seeing how a company spends its money is critically important, too. He also delves into the prospect he sees in a particular type of financial company. And finally, according to Steve, every investor should aim to hone this invaluable trait, especially in today's tumultuous market... The number of people who are able to hold through a year like 2022... and then be afraid to get back into the market when things are bottomed out... it's the capacity to suffer. It's the capacity to take a loss and not be afraid of what's happening. It's the capacity of being able to do the hard thing and get rewarded for it because other people won't. And that's going to be a competitive advantage both in investing... and in life.

    We're now in a bear market... But today's Stansberry Investor Hour episode won't focus on that. Instead, Dan has a unique guest whose rousing words will be a respite from the recent market carnage.  Vitaliy Katsenelson is the CEO of value-investing firm Investment Management Associates. He's the author of two books and an award-winning writer featured in publications like the Financial Times and Barron's. However, Vitaliy describes himself as a "student of life." And he has just released his third book, called Soul in the Game: The Art of a Meaningful Life. As a classical-music lover, Vitaliy had a revelation when writing about the travails faced by some of his favorite composers during their own creative processes – from being compared with a former great to pioneering a piece that broke the rules. It's about learning how to push past the anxiety and forge your own path in life and investing... In any profession, there's always going to be somebody who's considered to be the "greatest" whatever... It's so easy for us to just copy Warren Buffett. Instead, what we should be doing is we should be looking at how Warren Buffett is thinking. Also, we should not be afraid to think on our own... You can look at the way Buffett invests, and you can actually build your own path. The learning process can be complicated. But as Dan chimes in, "Things worth doing take time." He and Vitaliy also talk about the importance of repetition – whether it's rereading Nassim Taleb's book to unpeel its complicated layers or watching Pulp Fiction on repeat to understand the hype. In this episode, Vitaliy also shares concepts from Soul in the Game, such as striking the right balance between art and craft in life. And he gives what might be the shortest answer ever (just two words!) to Dan's "Final Question."

    Today, we welcome Broyhill Asset Management President and Chief Investment Officer Chris Pavese to the Stansberry Investor Hour. It has been three years since Dan and Chris last spoke on our show. And needless to say, a lot has changed in the markets and the world since then – including a pandemic, war, and economic turmoil. As a seasoned industry veteran who has guided his clients through previous cataclysmic financial events, Chris has some advice to offer novice investors...   He explains the big mistake fledgling investors make is "chasing the most spectacular returns" and looking for advice from people or places that "put up great numbers in bull markets" while ignoring their performance during bear markets. After all, he says, "The most spectacular returns of 2021 are posting the most spectacular losses this year."   Chris and Dan both agree that focusing on finding value in a market environment like this one is your best bet. That's the kind of research Chris' firm Broyhill specializes in... like examining big mergers and acquisitions to look for gems and breezing past airline stocks – which Chris describes as "notoriously awful businesses with notoriously awful balance sheets" – in favor of an overlooked sector right next door. Finally, Chris imparts some wisdom regarding investor behavior thanks to his many years of advising clients – including the psychology around the big topic of "when to sell." And he shares the one simple and absolutely essential, yet often overlooked, thing to do before investing in any public company. As human beings, we always do the opposite of what we should be doing. We're always buying when we should be selling – when the stock has gone down. And we're selling when the stock has gone up... That's the time to lock yourself in and ride that wave to make as much profit as possible. Keith uses the company's software during the episode to give a rundown of the best and worst sectors to be in right now, as well as several market big dogs. He also shares the No. 1 metric that investors should home in on when researching recession-proof companies. And he regales Dan with tales of how much hate mail TradeSmith received when it warned subscribers early of the major market slumps in 2020 and 2022 (which, of course, came true).

    Stupidity... or Risk Awareness?

    Yes, they've gotten a lot of flak. But could there be something more to the "meme-stock mania" crowd?  In this week's Investor Hour episode, host Dan Ferris welcomes WallStreetBets founder Jaime Rogozinski back to the show. WallStreetBets is an infamous forum on social media site Reddit. The online community came to public attention in early 2021 when its denizens – often viewed as young, uneducated, and risk-hungry investors – crippled hedge funds by pumping up undeserving "dead stocks" like AMC Entertainment (AMC) and GameStop (GME). In this week's interview, Jaime gives his eye-opening perspective on the 2021 mania, saying there's more to the story than the negative picture painted by the media... It's a sophisticated way of doing risk awareness. But it's a conduit for people that start off in a risk-hungry environment and eventually move into a more responsible, traditional approach – but with a tremendous knowledge, I would say, even more so than the average person that starts off with lower-risk approaches. Jaime also shares what he has learned about investor behavior from watching the action play out across the Reddit board... When people go into the market and start off with a bunch of wins, it is very dangerous. It's much more dangerous than if they start off by losing money. And the reason why is because it kind of speeds up the learning curve. Somebody that loses money right away is forced to take a step back, slow things down, understand a little bit better, and not be so impulsive. Somebody that makes money without knowing what they're doing goes through these, kind of like, Dunning-Kruger effects... which basically is a way of saying people don't have the ability to measure their own abilities.  He assuages Dan's curiosity on whether anyone from WallStreetBets has ever blamed him for their losses. And he shares stories of even meeting some of the members. Plus, Jaime's simple but sage answer to Dan's Investor Hour-standard "Final Question" will resound in your investing... and in your life.

    On the heels of last week's special bear market presentation comes the perfect guest for today's episode: Investor Hour veteran, software architect, and CEO of portfolio-tracking service TradeSmith Keith Kaplan. As the threat of a recession looms, hunting for "forever businesses" while pruning portfolio losers at the right moment becomes critical for individual investors. The process can be overwhelming on your own. But TradeSmith's elegantly built trading software – the backbone of a product suite that offers everything from portfolio creation to management – distills all that complicated information into a simple, intuitive system. It's similar to what the professionals use, but it's engineered for the retail investor.  In this week's interview, Keith explains how his company's proprietary technology strives to make investing less daunting, using easy-to-understand "stoplight system" volatility indicators and smart trailing stop alerts. After all... As human beings, we always do the opposite of what we should be doing. We're always buying when we should be selling – when the stock has gone down.

Its win rate stems from Greg's expertise in technical analysis – a strategy that relies on studying past market and human behavior to predict what's next. With nearly two decades of experience trading and managing multibillion-dollar portfolios across every asset class, Greg is well-versed in guiding his subscribers to profits... while also knowing when to sit back and be patient.  But it's not just about technical analysis... Greg also underlines the importance of understanding the fundamentals of market behavior, inspired by his recent readings on legendary investor and trader Stanley Druckenmiller... At the end of the day, follow the Fed. What's the Fed doing? Are they opening the spigot and releasing cash into the market? Or are they not? So, what's Greg's secret to surviving – and thriving – in this rocky market while everyone else gets "whipsawed"? Greg says it all boils down to making sure you have two crucial items in your trading toolkit, both of which have led his readers to consistently make money, regardless of what the market is doing. And he explains why he believes the popular notion of checking your emotions at the door before investing or trading is actually a misconception.

    In today's dismal market, value stocks remain a beacon of hope for investors... And there's no one better suited to discuss this topic than recurring Investor Hour favorite, Tobias Carlisle. Tobias is the founder and managing director of deep-value investment firm Acquirers Funds, which is centered around his trademarked valuation tool – the Acquirer's Multiple. Simply put, it's a "valuation ratio used to find attractive takeover candidates"... and is favored by many activists and buyout firms. On top of creating a proprietary metric, Tobias has also written several books, including The Acquirer's Multiple, Concentrated Investing, Deep Value, and Quantitative Value. So, what does Tobias have to say about the slump we're in? It's not really a question of where you think the market's going to go because you're invariably going to be wrong... The best return you're going to get is by being fully invested. He says "names that can survive a nuclear winter" are the keys to surviving this bear market. To Tobias, that means focusing on deeply undervalued companies – ones that are buying back shares, are cheap, and are growing at a reasonable pace. He also breaks down the art of valuation – including his Acquirer's Multiple measure – and how to identify the right time to buy or sell.

He rose to fame as the "Scottish hedge-fund king" when his fund returned 30%-plus during the throes of the financial crisis. He's also well-known for his outspoken remarks and contrarian views. One time, he even duked it out with a Nobel Prize-winning economist on television, asking, "Um, hello? Can I tell you about the real world?"  These days, Hugh entertains a wide audience with his wit and energetic market commentary in his podcast, The Acid Capitalist. Today's conversation begins with a bang, as Dan and Hugh tackle one of the biggest market headlines: the stock sell-off. Shares of "FAANG" giants like Netflix, Amazon, and Apple are tanking... And it's hard to see these behemoths – which were once among the best-performing tech companies in the world – as "risk free" businesses anymore. Instead, they could herald a recession. So, what does Hugh have to say on the matter? It's going to be really long, but it's going to be entertaining. Wear comfortable clothing.  He and Dan chat about several other topics, including inflation's grim march, Bill Hwang's multibillion-dollar fraud indictment, the "malevolent shadow of the Federal Reserve" behind high prices in oil and mining industries, and bitcoin as a risk-on versus risk-off asset. No one is safe from Hugh's wisecracks – not even the ultrawealthy. In addition to financial topics, he shares his thoughts on Elon Musk's latest follies, the real reason Bill Gates and Jeff Bezos vacationed in St. Barts, and what he thinks of Johnny Depp's biggest purchase

    With inflation creeping higher and higher these days, now is the perfect time for this week's guest to make his Stansberry Investor Hour debut. Patrick Yip is a precious metals expert. He's the director of business development at APMEX, one of the largest online precious metals retailers in the U.S., as well as the manager of OneGold, APMEX's innovative investment platform for vaulted positions in gold, silver, and platinum. And he says that in a market fraught with uncertainty like we're seeing today, it's especially important for conservative and speculative investors alike to consider adding precious metals to their portfolios... If history repeats itself, inflation at its current rate could erode half of your wealth in nine years. No one knows what the future is going to give us. But if history repeats, precious metals are going to protect your wealth and maybe even increase your wealth. Gold, he says, is perfect for those seeking extra portfolio protection during periods of high inflation. If metals rally like they did during the inflationary cycles of the 1960s and '70s, investors could see gold hit $5,000 in the next few years. That's more than 150% higher than today's prices. And silver – what Dan teasingly calls the "meme stock of the metals world" – offers equal opportunity for investors willing to stomach a little more volatility. Right now, silver premiums are sky-high. But as Patrick discusses, it all boils down to simple supply-and-demand economics... He walks listeners through each step of coin making's complicated process from mine to mint and pinpoints the exact spot in the supply chain that's "stressed the most" right now. And he unveils how his OneGold system offers a unique way to directly own silver while bypassing the high prices. Finally, Patrick touches on what Dan calls "the elephant in the room" – another popular (though, very different) asset – and how it holds up to gold and silver in one's portfolio.

Throughout his 25-year career, he has developed and refined his quantitative-trading methods, risk, and portfolio-management processes. A self-proclaimed "quant trader," Wayne uses advanced mathematics to help identify moneymaking opportunities in both good times and bad. So in today's unforgiving market environment, he's a valuable guide for novice and veteran investors alike. When asked to define himself as an investor, Wayne emphasizes how investing should be thought of as "trading your personality." You should invest in a way that aligns with how you see and understand the world... What's funny to me is that people get really... rigorous about their view. If somebody, for example, is not very mathematical and they deeply believe in the fundamentals – understanding the company and talking to management and the whole other side of the world of investing – then I've seen, in that framework, them looking down on the quantitative side... like the two worlds have to be bifurcated... Everybody's entitled to be who they are and trade that way. You're going to do better being yourself... Why do you have to speak or look badly at the way other people choose to express their personality in the markets? Dan and Wayne dig deep into "familiar market signals," including how to best utilize them for your investing style. They also discuss the importance and influence of market bubbles, the pressures of news headlines on investing, and the need to explore and remain curious as a modern-day investor.

    Metals and mining stocks are a hot topic right now. Global commodity prices continue to surge as the Russia-Ukraine conflict rages on... The U.S. is looking to ramp up domestic production of the minerals needed to produce electric-vehicle batteries... Even the "meme stock" crowd is jumping on board, recently pushing a previously unnoticed small metals miner up nearly 800%. According to Dan, "There's something broken about the market." So this week on Stansberry Investor Hour, he invites seasoned geologist Brent Cook to break down the real opportunities in this highly complex industry. Over his storied career, Brent has worked in more than 60 countries consulting on proposed mine sites. His knowledge spans all areas of the mining business, from the conception stage to detailed technical and financial modeling for mine development and production. In 2008, he founded the popular Exploration Insights newsletter and helped develop what is now one of the most invaluable tools in the industry, the Drill Hole Interval Calculator. In other words, when Brent talks about mining and geology... we listen. On this week's episode, Brent offers four key tips for uncovering the greatest mining and exploration stocks and reveals how he personally avoids "red flag" companies. As he wryly puts it... You can screen out a bunch. You can pick up [on] the bullsh*t. If you want to wash your hands after you've shaken, that's a bad sign. Mining, metals, and exploration companies can be extremely volatile and speculative. But they can also be rewarding for patient, long-term investors. So whether you've already tucked a junior miner away into your portfolio, you're eyeing a few metals companies, or you're just looking to get started, be sure to check out this week's episode.

In that time, she has interviewed such high-profile figures as Congressman Newt Gingrich, Economic Advisor Stephen Moore, and investors like Mark Cuban, Jim Rogers, and Steve Forbes. And as she discusses on the show, her work has given her a truly unique perspective into the distinct, recurring themes that leading financial minds are seeing right now in inflation, hard assets, the stock market... At the current rate of 7%, inflation hasn't been this high since 1982. And Daniela suspects that, in actuality, inflation is "running way higher" than the U.S. Federal Reserve wants to admit. "I don't buy the 7% narrative at all," she says. "At one point, the Fed is going to have to act more aggressively [than they currently are if] they don't want the beast to get out of hand." In this kind of uncertain environment, Daniela encourages everyone to educate themselves and take control of their own financial freedom by holding assets unloved by the mainstream media... by focusing on long-term investing, gold-mining stocks, or crypto... and most importantly, by educating themselves. "We are in unprecedented times," she ends by saying. "Now, more than ever, you have to educate yourself. Don't count on the banking system or on whatever your neighbor's doing. Do it for yourself. Do it for your family. Do it for your legacy."

And because Matt believes in buying and holding for the long haul, this month's stomach-churning stock volatility didn't faze him... Matt says too often folks "hit the sell button too quickly... and panic selling doesn't work in the long run." He reminds listeners that market corrections are natural and inevitable, and smart investors should use these pullbacks as opportunities to buy. Matt still believes in his Roaring 2020s thesis – that the coming decade will be the best years for investing that we've seen yet – but recessions and drawdowns are absolutely a part of it. Dan and Matt talk technology, one of Matt's cornerstone investing themes. He's still bullish on electric vehicles and Tesla, a company he calls a leader in the industry and sites the current downtrend in these stocks as a great time to get in. They also discuss 3D printing, something Matt is really excited about, and he says that "by the end of the decade, it could be a trillion-dollar industry." Almost every sector can utilize 3D printing – housing, automobiles, medicine, aerospace ­– and it's an area most investing folks aren't even looking at yet. Matt joined Stansberry Research last year, and his subscribers have already achieved impressive gains.

    The current tensions between Russia and Ukraine have been all over the news… perhaps even contributing to this week's big market sell-off. But Dan Ferris' guest this week on Stansberry Investor Hour has some reassuring words for any concerned listeners: You can relax.  Dan sits down with one of his favorite guests -- geopolitical expert Marko Papic, who is the Partner and Chief Strategist at an alternative investment asset management firm. Marko is Dan's "No. 1 macro guy" and specializes in geopolitics, macroeconomics, and markets. And Marko says it's life as usual right now for folks in Ukraine, and the media noise surrounding the possibility of war is just over-done news hype…  Marko clarifies that if a war does happen, yes of course there would be global and market implications. But for right now, it's just a local regional issue being sensationalized by the media. They also discuss inflation, which Marko says will continue to be an issue. He reminds everyone "This isn't the 1970s…" and that regular folks today "don't have the stomach for a real recession" needed to fight inflation.    Dan plays a bit of devil's advocate with him about commodities and emerging markets investing, which Marko says is his No. 1 capital allocation idea right now. Despite this being a contrarian idea, he tells Dan that "commodity-linked plays should pay off in 2022." They touch on COVID's continuing effect on the markets, as well as value-growth trades.

Egon, whose company specializes in wealth preservation, has been a gold bug for decades. He and Dan talk about how gold is the No. 1 hedge against inflation and market chaos. Egon says “gold is the best instrument you could ever buy to ensure your wealth.” And holding gold will protect you from the coming consequences of our current massive market bubble... created and fueled by the Federal Reserve's unlimited money printing and our highest inflation rate in decades. Unfortunately, Egon predicts that the impending “wealth destruction will be massive.” And the folks who think the Fed is going to swoop in and save the system again this next crash are wrong... Egon says that there are “tough times ahead,” but this makes wealth preservation, which includes holding gold, even more crucial.  Dan and Egon also discuss bitcoin, as many have asked if gold will be replaced by the popular cryptocurrency. Egon is confident that will never happen, and makes the bold prediction that “bitcoin won't still be around in 50 years.” He goes on to say that bitcoin “will always be a fringe investment”... and that “it's not real money.” Lastly, Dan asks every guest the same last question: “If you can leave our listeners with only one last thought, what would it be?” And Egon's answer won't disappoint...

But the truth is, you can make a ton of money in the stock market, without spending hours per day researching stocks... or reading hundreds of books on different investment strategies... On this week's episode, Dan invites Harris Kupperman onto the show to explain how. Harris is the founder of Praetorian Capital, a hedge fund based in Florida with a long track record of market beating performance. He's also the Chief Adventurer at, an investment blog uncovering unique opportunities around the world. Today, he visits to talk about his shockingly simple way of investing that has a long history of producing incredible gains...  Harris says he doesn't concern himself with interest rates... He doesn't care where the next 50 BPS on the 10-year treasury yield is going... Or what the Forex rate is going to be... Instead, he looks for microtrends that are happening in society – ones that are obvious once you spot them – and then he identifies the safest, highest upside way to play them. And he's not going for 20% or 50% gains... Harris is looking for stocks with the potential to go up 5x to 10x higher...  During the interview, Harris shares two stocks with Dan that he's identified that are poised to grow rapidly, thanks to some of these microtrends happening today. When he explains the microtrends, and the stock that are positioned to benefit, you'll be surprised that these stories aren't front page news...
