David Gardner: Will this be your admired podcast of the year? And not aloof for Rule Breaker Investing? I mean, will this be your admired podcast of 2018? I can’t say. The heck, I’m activity to go for it. I’m activity to do my best, but I can’t be sure. But I will allotment with you my own feeling: This ability be my admired RBI podcast of the year. Why? Well, one, it’s mailbag. I consistently adulation responding to your thoughts and questions. Two: It’s all abstemious with poetry. To every one of the bristles mailbag items we awning this week, I’ve absorbed a poem, works that accept been advanced featured throughout the year, on this podcast, some of my admired stuff. Creativity, both occasionally asinine and sometimes stunning. Yep, it’s the aftermost Rule Breaker Advance podcast for 2018, your mailbag and our Balladry of Rule Breaker Investing, starting now.
This podcast is brought to you by absolutely nobody. Yep, that’s right. Cipher capital to acquaint during this active week. This comes out on Boxing Day, Dec. 26, the day afterwards Christmas. I can brainstorm that our sponsors thought, “Nobody’s activity to be alert on Dec. 26.” So in abode of our accustomed sponsorship, I aloof appetite to say acknowledgment for listening!
It is a absolutely active time of year. But we’ve never absent a anniversary in three-plus years of accomplishing this podcast. Fresh agreeable every week. We’re absolutely not skimping with the final podcast of 2018. I’m not activity to acknowledge any sponsor this week, I’m activity to acknowledge you!
Welcome aback to Rule Breaker Investing! I’m captivated to accept you abutting with me here, the final anniversary of 2018, a year of bazaar ups and downs. [laughs] Since I’m taping this advanced of time — that’s right, my ambassador Rick Engdahl and I accept able this for you, but we aerated this up some canicule aback so that we ourselves could be adequate this anniversary anniversary with our families. In my case, I’m on the way to London about adapted about the time that you apprehend this podcast.
It’s the final Wednesday of the month, and that agency it’s consistently mailbag actuality on Rule Breaker Investing. It’ll be a little bit of a beneath mailbag. I aloof accept bristles items. But for anniversary of these items, as I mentioned at the top, I’ve tagged a poem. Now, these poems, abounding of them are original. Some aboriginal to this podcast. Some accounting by me. Some accounting by you. Dr. Seuss will be authoritative an actualization during this podcast as well, so we’ve got complete professionals as allotment of the Balladry of Rule Breaker Investing. I’m absolutely attractive advanced to activity through these bristles and administration the adroitness with you.
Without added ado, let’s get started. Rule Breaker mailbag annual No. 1. This one comes from one of my admired listeners. Kurt Eliea, you’ve been a admirable contributor over the years. You’ve aggregate out some of your own adventure and some of your thinking. You’ve reflected on the podcasts. I apperceive you’re a affectionate listener. Acknowledgment a lot! So, sure, I anticipate it’s a abundant way to abutting out the final adventure of the year, arch off with this mailbag annual from you this week.
“Dear David,” Kurt writes, “as we acclimate the accepted bazaar turbulence, rather than focus on the concise losses to my portfolio over the accomplished brace of weeks, I anticipation it would be added fun and advantageous to abstraction the factors that accept accustomed me to advance a complete acceptable centralized bulk of return” — IRR; this is basically his anniversary achievement — “of 15% aback I started advance Foolishly about 10 years ago.”
Fifteen percent annualized. Kurt says that’s about 3% bigger than the S&P. While 3% may not complete like abundant in a accustomed year, aback you do that for 10 afterwards years, it starts to attending absolutely sweet. Kurt, congratulations! That’s spectacular!
He goes on. “As I broken and diced my portfolio, I begin that several of the advance practices I’ve abstruse from the Fool accept served me absolutely well.” Kurt includes three lessons. Assignment one — this is one of the phrases of the year for this podcast: Winners win. Assignment one. “Back in my aphotic canicule of advance afore the Fool, I absurd myself a ‘value investor.’ I adore attractive for acceptable deals in my approved purchasing decisions, so I ample it fabricated faculty to attending for bargains on stocks too. Sadly, this resulted in a ‘water the weeds’ advance action that led me into abounding ‘value traps.’ Aback switching to the Rule Breaking access of watering my flowers instead, I’ve been able to accomplish the market-beating after-effects acclaimed aloft by abacus to my winners.
“To assay this, I affected a arrangement for my acceptable stocks adjoin my accident stocks that represented how abounding times I’d purchased anniversary stock. As you can see, my better-performing stocks are absolutely the ones that I accept additionally fabricated assorted purchases of added often.” He includes a table. I’ll abridge it briefly. Kurt basically shows that stocks that accept absent money for him, his basal 20, he fabricated 1.4 purchases. The exact opposite, stocks with over 100% complete return, his top 16, he’d fabricated 2.3 purchases per stock. It was a appealing alike acclivity from the basal to the top. The bigger the stocks had done for him, the added purchases of the banal he’d made. That is, indeed, complete Rule Breaker-y of you, Kurt. Complete Foolish!
Lesson No. 2, he said, “Pull the weeds, but do so with caution. Like you, I don’t advertise stocks complete often. Aback I do, it’s usually alone aback I’m affected to buy a accumulated buyout or aback I accept the facts of my aboriginal apriorism about the business no best authority true. Over the years, I’ve been balked by the actuality that alike aback I advertise a aggregation for the adapted reasons, those stocks abide to acceleration afterwards I advertise them about alert as about as they drop.”
I aloof accept to admit here, isn’t it wonderful, by scoring yourself and what Kurt’s doing, you can apprentice so much! You accretion so abundant acumen through the act of reflection. It makes me happy, cerebration aback to aftermost week’s podcast, area I advised two of our five-stock samplers. If you didn’t get a adventitious to apprehend it, I achievement you’ll go aback and listen. We’re consistently reviewing and reflecting, not aloof on the numbers of our performance, acceptable or bad, but accurately on the acquaint that we can learn. We get so abundant smarter by advantageous absorption and befitting score. Anyway, let’s go adapted aback to Kurt’s letter.
“So I absitively to dig added into the numbers to see if I should aloof stop affairs altogether, and here’s what I found. On average, the stocks I’ve awash in my portfolio accept risen a whopping 53% in bulk aback I awash them. So far, not good. But afresh it occurred to me that there were advanced variations in agreement of how continued it had been aback I awash these stocks. So I affected the annualized movement that anniversary banal had fabricated aback the date that I awash it. I got 13%. Beneath painful, but still appealing abutting to my abiding portfolio acknowledgment of 15%.” I’m activity to abridge here. Kurt afresh goes on to say that a fair bulk of the affairs was aloof in the accomplished brace of years, which accept been absolutely strong.
Lesson three, I already baby this one. Assignment three: Accumulate score. Kurt concludes, “This accomplished exercise has able for me how important it was that I abide to accumulate clue of all of my accomplished advance decisions and after-effects so that I can considerately appraise what is alive and what is not, and hopefully abide to apprentice to do added of the former, that is, the alive part, over time. Bazaar action breeds emotion, but assay of my advance statistics breeds rational anticipation and learning. Acknowledgment for all you’ve done and abide to do to accomplish me and my adolescent Fools bigger investors. Fool on, Kurt Eliea.”
That agenda absolutely batten for itself. I don’t anticipate I accept to accord abundant of response, Kurt. I’ll aloof say, Fool on aback to you! Acknowledge you! And you’ve aloof triggered our aboriginal bit of balladry from the Balladry of Rule Breaker Investing.
I aggregate this in an beforehand episode. It was Abundant Quotes Volume 9, which we didn’t do too continued ago. It’s Dr. Seuss. It’s the aperture of his book, McElligot’s Pool, which was already adapted to me abounding years ago by a adolescent Fool, one of our members, at a affiliate event. He said, “Have you anytime apprehend McElligot’s Pool?” And I anticipate I said at the time, “No, I haven’t.” I’ve apprehend Green Eggs and Ham. Who hasn’t apprehend that? I’ve apprehend — and frankly, this is a pet annoyance of abundance — I never absolutely admired that abundant Oh, The Places You’ll Go. I apprehend bodies adulation the book, and I’m sorry, but it didn’t assignment for me. But I about adulation Dr. Seuss. But I’d not apprehend McElligot’s Pool. And this affiliate said, “You should.” And afresh I did.
Here’s the aboriginal stanza, folio one.
“Young man,” laughed the farmer, “you’re array of a fool. You’ll never bolt angle in McElligot’s Pool.”
I adulation that book! It starts adapted there with somebody that I anticipate is affectionate of like you and me. The aboriginal time we anticipate about affairs stocks directly, the world, in the form, in this case, of a farmer, somebody beforehand than we are, apparently wiser, and they’re bedlam at us. “Young man,” laughed the farmer, “you’re array of a fool.” Well, that absolutely works for The Motley Fool. That band fits absolutely able-bodied with you and me, “You’re array of a fool. You’ll never bolt angle in McElligot’s Pool.” You’ll never exhausted the market, action the farmer.
And yet, we’ve begin throughout the advance of our 25 years as a business, and absolutely throughout my 52 years of life, and I’ve had some abundant exemplars like my father, who exhausted the bazaar afore me, or how about Peter Lynch, whose books I apprehend and loved, or Warren Buffett, who’s done a appealing acceptable job assault the bazaar — turns out you can do it. And it’s not alike that hard.
Whether you’re a little boy with a fishing rod, or somebody a little bit added complete with a allowance account, I animate you to booty that risk. Don’t accept to the farmers out there. Well, these kinds of farmers. There’s some absolutely acceptable farmers out there, too. Don’t accept to bodies bedlam at you, cogent you that this is a decay of time. It absolutely is not. Dr. Seuss knew that, too.
All right, mailbag annual No. 2. Addition abundant note. This one from Ryan Dabieri. “Dear David, I’ve been afterward you, your brother, and Bill Mann aback about 2000. The aggregate Motley Fool admonition came at the complete time in my life, aboriginal 20s aback then, and it’s served me well. I accept a abiding and connected advance temperament. I don’t get ashamed by the circadian business annual cycle. I’ve fabricated it a addiction to alive beneath my means. I’m accomplishing my best to canyon this mentality on to my two sons, who are now 5 and 7.
“The adventure about your dad giving you your complete bequest aback you came of age addled a ambit with me.” I’ve told that adventure before. I’m abiding I’ll acquaint it afresh on this podcast. It was an absurd allowance that he gave us at the age of 18 aback he said, “Here you go, David, Tom, and Mackie,” our sister. “Here you go. This is all you’re anytime accepting from me. Anything that I accept larboard aback I die,” auspiciously he hasn’t yet, “goes to your kids. It skips a generation. Be fruitful, multiply, don’t spiral up this portfolio.” We abiding approved not to. It was an absurd gift. That’s what Ryan’s apropos to.
It goes on. “I am adored with the agency to be able to chase that archetype so that my sons can alpha their adolescence debt-free and with some berry money that they could use to alpha a business, put bottomward adjoin a house, etc. Not alone would this accommodate them options that I never had, but it additionally would serve as a connected admonition for me to do my best to animate them to be good, responsible, arrogant adolescent men who will be appropriately able for this allowance and adulthood. And if they draft some of it on an big-ticket sports car, well, I apperceive at atomic one added who was able to antithesis from this array of indulgent and fiscally capricious decision.”
He is, indeed, apropos to me, and my own acceptance that one of the aboriginal agency that I spent money was that I bought a sports car in college. While I don’t accept any abjure about it, it absolutely wasn’t the best algebraic move for me. So, acclaim and touche, Ryan!
He closes, “If we capital to do article agnate to what your dad did for you and Tom, what would you say is the adapted bulk in today’s dollars? I bulk I accept about 15 years. How would you advance I alpha architecture up their aboriginal inheritance?”
Here’s my response, Ryan. It’s a simple one. As abundant as humanly possible, I would go for it. I would go all out. Now, I realize, some bodies will be thinking, “That’s not adapted for me.” Or, “That’s not adapted for my ancestors or my kids.” We acclimated to accept a wills and estates guy who capital us to abate what we were activity to leave for our kids, because he was absorption on his own kids. He basically was saying, with a smile, things like, “I don’t alike assurance them with that money.” That was his attitude, and I absolutely understand. I’m abiding that formed for him. That was adapted for him and his kids.
Ryan, you’re activity to apperceive best what’s absolutely adapted for you. At atomic in my case, on annual of my kids, as my dad did for me, I would try to save as abundant as I can and put it adjoin their accounts and advance it as able-bodied as you can. I’d try to abound it up into the biggest, best admirable affair that you can. Admittedly, again, this comes from me. Allotment of the acumen we were able to alpha The Motley Fool is because we had resources. We didn’t accept to go out and borrow money to alpha a business. We didn’t accept to advertise off all of our business to a adventure backer in year one or two of our company. We benefited abundantly from the generosity and eyes of our dad.
In closing, everybody’s different. I absolutely accept you’re activity to accomplish the best accommodation for your kids. I don’t anticipate there’s any distinct cardinal or abracadabra cardinal that would assignment for every adolescent in the apple area I could accord an acknowledgment to that catechism that anybody could booty abroad and use. My own attitude you aloof heard. I would say, go for it.
You’ve put me in apperception of article I appetite to allotment as our additional alms of Rule Breaker Advance Poetry. Of the bristles I’ll be administration throughout this podcast, this is the alone one that comes from me. There’s a little aback adventure that I appetite to allotment with you. Again, I accept advanced aggregate this on this podcast, but it was a while ago now. As I anticipation about what balladry I capital to feature, this one came aback to me. Actuality it is.
First of all, let me say that it’s bang poetry. For anybody who’s anytime been to a balladry bang — I’ve been to one, too, but aloof one. The one that I appear to accept abounding was at the Conscious Capitalism CEO Summit a brace of years back. The actuality who was apprenticeship us is absolutely a complete acclaimed bang poet. His complete name is Adam, but his date name is IN-Q. I’m activity to allotment with you in aloof a sec what he said to us to affect us to address a bang composition that day, which I will anon be sharing.
Before I do that, I appetite to accord you a hot tip. If you appetite to be inspired, if you appetite to absorb three or four annual ancient this anniversary division on YouTube, and be maybe a little bit complete away, maybe with a admired one or your ancestors around, I would awful acclaim that you aloof google IN-Q, YouTube. There, you’ll acquisition yourself on a YouTube folio with some of the assignment that he’s put up on YouTube. Three-, four-minute videos. Two in particular. One, A Composition About Adage Yes. The additional is titled The Alone Acumen We’re Alive.
The aboriginal of those, I should mention, has about 48,000 angle on YouTube, which is a lot added angle than I get for my archetypal podcast that goes up on YouTube. Acceptable job, IN-Q! That one’s appealing great! And it absolutely is. You’re activity to adore A Composition About Adage Yes. But the additional one has 2 actor angle on YouTube. The Alone Acumen We’re Alive. While it ability be a hardly bigger poem, I’m not alike abiding that it’s bigger than the aboriginal — it happens to be animated. It’s a voiceover as he reads it. I anticipate what that proves to us is that if you add a little bit of action and about-face article into a Pixar-like thing, you’re activity to get 2 actor angle on YouTube, admitting if you aloof do it yourself on date at a TEDx talk, you’re alone activity to get 48,000 views. Both are great! I acclaim them to you.
So, what did IN-Q say to us that day? We had about 20 annual to address a poem. But aloof before, he said, “Here’s the thing. Aback you address your poem, you’re activity to accept 20 minutes, and I appetite you to anticipate about a time area you absolved through a door, article happened, and aback you absolved aback through that door, you were afflicted forever.” He said, “It’s not activity to be article that apparently happened at the office. I mean, it could be, but anticipate a little bit bigger. Anticipate alfresco of your accustomed space.” So that’s what about 60 or 70 of us did over the advance of the abutting 20 or 25 minutes. I’m activity to acquaint you, a few of us got up and apprehend our poems. I was not one of them. I’m absolutely adopting my hand, but I knew that I could allotment it one day with you, my Rule Breaker Advance listeners. So why be egocentric and try to get there in advanced of the mic in advanced of 70 others?
But the three bodies who stepped up, we had a admirer who had immigrated to this country and was administration how he went from a abode that was cold, area he’d been from, and flew adapted to Houston, area he was activity to be living, and what a altered activity that was. It was a abundant immigrant tale. Afresh we had the adventure of a woman who had absent her voice. She woke up one day and had a malady that acquired her to lose her articulation for two years of her life. She reflected, afterwards about 20 annual of balladry slamming on how that felt, and how adamantine it was. Afresh we had addition woman. This is absolutely activity to an affecting place. The composition she airtight bottomward was her lying in bed abutting to her additional husband, absorption on the abundantly difficult accident of accepting to accomplish the accommodation to cull the bung a decade or so afore on her aboriginal husband. You can alone brainstorm how affecting that accomplished balladry bang apprenticeship affair was. It was about like one allotment accumulation assay and one allotment acute positivity about the balladry and expressions that bodies came up with.
Now, I appetite to allotment with you my abbreviate balladry bang about a aperture that I already went through, and aback I came aback through that door, I emerged afflicted forever. It’s called Why Did Aggregate Stop That Day?
Why did aggregate stop that day? Because it did. Why did aggregate stop that day? In a way, I could say that never, no way, had article like this happened afore to me. What is more, I was abiding that it would appear again. When? I didn’t know. But it did. Aggregate chock-full that day. My way of accomplishing what I did before. Selfishness stopped. Well, some of it. And that was good. As was some of my appetite stopped. Stopping, bottomward to a point area article in me said, I don’t care. I don’t affliction about the area of area we’ll live. I don’t affliction about the who of who you’ll be. You’ll be you. And that is abundant for me. Stopped. Chock-full annoying aback you’ll allocution or airing or cramp at a boy. Your aboriginal word, your aboriginal step, your aboriginal day, Because aggregate chock-full the day you were born, daughter. And now, now aggregate starts.
All right. Not a bad experience, that balladry bang session. Sometimes I admiration how abundant bigger we could accept done if we’d spent added time at it. Twenty-five minutes. But afresh I think, maybe balladry that comes fast and bent is the accomplished abstraction of a balladry slam. Acknowledgment afresh to IN-Q. I awful acclaim those YouTube videos.
Rule Breaker mailbag annual No. 3. This one comes from Zach Thielen. Some bodies ability accent it differently. Maybe I should. But I accept a friend, my longtime Motley Fool Rule Breakers acquaintance and analyst, Carl Thiel. Afresh there’s Peter Thiel. And they both spell it like that. So I’ll accent it like their names. Zach, acknowledgment for autograph this note.
“Hello, David! I’ve been a adviser to this podcast for years with hopes of acceptable added and added ‘Foolish.’ Alike admitting I’ve listened for years, I’ve aloof afresh accomplished a point in my activity in which I’m able to actively invest. I accelerating from academy aftermost May. Now with a abounding time job, I’ve been able to save up some money. I started advance in backward July of this year, overextension $5,000 beyond 10 companies or so application the Robinhood app. Aback then, I’ve been abacus money actuality and there as I’ve apparent bigger deals appear about. However, the bazaar aloof keeps on dropping. To date, I accept a complete of $11,500 invested with about a 10% bead in value.
“In these aftermost few months, I’ve abstruse that there are acceptable times to invest, and there are acutely bigger times to invest. Unfortunately, during this time, I’ve been breaking the rules of Rule Breaker Advance by abacus to my losers, because, well, about all of my stocks are losers. And yet I still accept they are acceptable companies.
“All in all, my catechism for you afresh is: Aback the complete bazaar seems to be bottomward over a continued aeon of time, should we as investors authority for a assertive aeon of time to see how things comedy out or abide to buy these abundant companies at discounted prices? In my experience, it’s not helped to abide to buy in these aftermost few months. But it’s gotten my bulk per allotment lower, which is acceptable if and aback the bazaar does go up. Acknowledgment for all the ability and acumen that you share. Fool on, Zach.”
Zach, acknowledge you for that note! I’m delighted, aboriginal of all, that you’ve been alert for years, afterward along, accepting added and added Foolish, acceptance academy this accomplished May. Outstanding. I’m additionally captivated to apprehend that you landed a job. I bet it’s a acceptable job. I bet your employer’s adored that he or she begin you. I’m captivated to anticipate that you’ve already been extenuative bags of dollars and putting those adjoin companies, I achievement some of the ones that we about allocution about in Rule Breaker Investing. Or maybe you’re a subscriber to Motley Fool Banal Advisor or Rule Breakers. I achievement you own those kinds of companies, ones that are congenital to last, ones that innovate, ones that do article abundant in this world. That’s what we’re all about and I’ve consistently been about in 25 years of advance adapted out front, with anybody who wants to tap in anywhere about the apple to our website and see what we anticipate and what we’re doing.
It is acutely adverse that you started adapted as the bazaar started down. If you got to apprehend aftermost week’s podcast, aback I was reviewing some of our five-stock samplers, adored to say they’ve still been acceptable investments. But about every one of those stocks was badly college aloof a few months ago. We’ve apparent some of the abundant companies like NVIDIA get cut in bisected in aloof a brace of months. It’s acutely bad luck, bad timing, that you were starting your advance career in the teeth of a bazaar drop. But as I anticipate you already know, if you fast-forward, attractive aback to today, you’re activity to be clumsily adored that you rewound your DVR aback to area we are actuality at the end of 2018. I doubtable you’re accepting some appealing acceptable prices for some of these companies that you’re continuing to buy because you’re still extenuative and you’re still advance more.
I’m appealing abiding you apperceive about this if you’ve listened to podcast for years, which you said you have. I’m appealing abiding you apperceive that we accept in authoritative a lifetime charge to actuality an investor. Not departure the market, not jumping aback in, but saving, as you’re doing, with every bacon check, and putting some of that aback adjoin added stocks, sometimes added of the aforementioned stocks. We’ll allocution about that in a sec. Sometimes added new stocks. Architecture a portfolio for life. You’re activity to be absolutely adored that you started this year. It’s boxy how that aboriginal $11,500 has performed for you, attractive aback over the aftermost few months. But I apperceive that you apperceive that the bazaar goes up over time, and you will badly annual from the accomplishment that you’re authoritative now.
The affection of your catechism is, we don’t like to add to losers. I aloof aggregate Kurt Eliea’s agenda — it’s all about consistently abacus to your winners. But aback you’ve alone had a accident period, that’s what you’ve aloof lived through, afresh of advance I anticipate it’s accomplished for you to abide to add to stocks that you accept in if you started positions and appetite to accumulate bushing them out.
I alone anticipate a acceptable aspirational ambition is to get from aught stocks, which is area we all alpha as new investors, to 15 stocks as fast as possible. You ability accept already done that. If you alone accept eight stocks so far, I ability advance that with your abutting $1,000, you buy a ninth stock. Then, with your abutting $1,000 afterwards that, buy a 10th stock. I like a minimum portfolio of 15 stocks. As I mentioned abounding times before, my portfolio hovers added about 50 stocks at this point in my life. I apperceive you apperceive the Gardner-Kretzmann Continuum, which gives you a guide, gives us all a guide, to about how abounding stocks you ability appetite to anticipate about owning at altered stages of your life.
To close, accustomed the achievement of the banal market, area appealing abundant aggregate has aloof been bottomward — that’s not the “add to losers” aberration we’re talking about on this podcast and at The Motley Fool. The losers by that analogue are about companies that are declining in some way, shape, or form. They’re hitting new 52-week lows while the blow of the bazaar isn’t. But we appear to be active adapted now in a bazaar area everything’s hitting 52-week lows at the aforementioned time. So I anticipate it’s fine, again, to abide to add to companies, bold that you’re abacus to them because you like their businesses, you accept in their prospects, and whether or not they had a acceptable or bad antithesis address this quarter, you apprehend bigger things in the abutting three to bristles years. We’re talking about the business achievement itself. The banal bazaar comes and goes up and down, but it’s the business performers, that’s the acceptable we’re about talking about with abacus to your winners. And yes, indeed, usually acceptable businesses equals acceptable stocks over any allusive aeon of time. So abacus to winners about agency the aforementioned thing.
I achievement I’ve announced appropriately to your question. It’s a good, nuanced question. Best of all, I ambition you abundant advance actuality as we access 2019 together.
Zach, that puts me in apperception of addition bit of poetry. This is composition No. 3 for our podcast this week. This one’s a abbreviate one. It came a abbreviate while ago. It was on a mailbag, accounting by a fellow, I anticipate a adolescent investor. His name was Aiden. I anticipate you’ll acknowledge audition this composition again.
Till I am oldI will buy and hold.It may assume absolutely boringbut what fun it is scoringand not abundant accept I anytime sold.The bazaar may changeand others may sell,but I accept captivated onand I accept done well.
It’s adamantine for any of us to accept done that able-bodied in the aftermost few months of investing. What I absolutely acknowledge about Aiden’s abrupt composition there, Till I Am Old, is it about sounds Seuss-ian. It about sounds like addition folio afterwards in McElligot’s Pool. The markets may change, others may sell, but I accept captivated on and I accept done well. I assurance that you and that adolescent adolescent with a fishing rod in McElligot’s Pool are birds of a feather. Acknowledge you, Aiden, and acknowledge you, Zach, for your note!
I try not to comedy favorites on this show. But this of the bristles belletrist ability be my favorite. Why do I adulation what I’m about to allotment with you? It’ll become axiomatic complete quickly, but I’ll examination it by adage somebody created something. Some of the balladry I’m administration with you on the appearance were creations from our listeners, who beatific in their balladry and we got to allotment it out. But this is a appropriate conception of an absolutely altered nature.
This agenda from Clay McKinney begins, “Hi, Rick.” That’s my producer, Rick. “David,” that’s me, “and Matt Argersinger,” who is my longtime Bazaar Cap Bold Appearance sidekick. Although, in contempo times — in fact, aloof a few weeks ago — I accustomed a new bedfellow brilliant to the show, Emily Flippen, who absolutely did star. Anyway.
“Hi, Rick, David, and Matt Argersinger. I fabricated an online adaptation of the Bazaar Cap Bold Appearance and I aloof acquaint it at marketcapgameshow.com.” Pause, adapted there. Aboriginal of all, Clay, you rock! You absolutely created the software adaptation of this game, and you bought the URL marketcapgameshow.com. I absolutely adulation it. Let’s acknowledgment to Clay’s argument here.
“It has an accessible approach for us mortals, a adamantine approach that follows the rules on the show, stats — my batting boilerplate is beneath than .200, acutely — and a way to adapt the annual of stocks on which it quizzes you. On the ‘about’ page, I accord you acclaim for authoritative up the game, and I complete users to the Rule Breakers podcast and the newsletter. Acknowledge you so abundant for the inspiration, for the podcast, and for all that added money in my retirement annual I accept from alert to you these accomplished few years. Clay McKinney.”
Clay, it goes afterwards a saying, you rock. I’ve already played the game. I went to your admirable site. I animate every adviser to go to marketcapgameshow.com and comedy along. I went adapted to adamantine mode. Accessible approach gives some big criterion numbers like, if it’s a $100 actor or $1 billion or $100 billion? Closest gets it. But the adamantine mode, that’s the affection and body of what we do on the show. That’s area you accept to assumption the bazaar cap abandoned aural 20% either way. Clay, you fabricated that the adamantine mode. I acknowledge it!
I went adapted to adamantine approach because that’s the alone way I’ll comedy this game. You randomized a banal for me, which is I anticipate how this works, a aggregation I had never heard of, Pluralsight, ticker PS. You alike included a little atom about what the aggregation does. It says, “Pluralsight Inc. operates as an action software company. The abutting offers a belvedere that provides technology accomplishment development solutions mainly by accouterment assorted courses for accompanying to technology.” That’s a typo. I’m not abiding area this came from. “Providing assorted courses for accompanying to technology, which accommodate adaptable security, IT, and data.” I apperceive that’s not Clay’s fault. He’s aloof affairs somebody else’s hardly miswritten and appealing hazy, I would say non-helpful, business description. I begin a lot of tech-speak and business allege that didn’t absolutely help.
So, I aloof thought, “Pluralsight, hmm. Action software company.” So I aloof broke in $3.5 billion. I knew annihilation about this company. And I’m adored to say, winner, winner, craven dinner, accepted bazaar cap is — you absolutely accord the abounding cardinal — $3,226,844,040. And I haven’t alike hit the abutting banal button to go to the abutting one, because I ability appetite to adore myself as the 1.000 hitter, the guy who went 1-for-1. There are a few of these, aren’t there, in the complete baseball encyclopedia? There ability or ability not be. At some point in the aftermost 100-plus years of American baseball, apparently one actuality got aloof one at-bat and maybe aloof got one hit.
But I anticipate anybody knows, I’m the bold appearance host for this game, so I’m not assured to be the accomplished amateur that Emily Flippen or Matt Argersinger or abounding of our admirers are. I’m aloof the host. I adulation actuality 1-for-1 with a aggregation that I’d never heard of.
Half-joking aside, Clay, abundant job! Absolutely fun! You’ve created fun that I can now allotment out too abounding of our admirers through this podcast, in the aforementioned way that I aggregate out IN-Q’s URL and YouTube videos earlier. I’m administration out appropriately Clay McKinney, who, for me, stands shoulder-to-shoulder with IN-Q in agreement of creating abundance on the internet. marketcapgameshow.com. My 16th admired website.
As I anticipation about what balladry to accommodate adapted afterwards mailbag annual No. 4, I thought, yeah, listeners creating actuality for this podcast. marketcapgameshow.com, now the immortalized Clay McKinney. How about Andrew VonderLuft, who, beforehand this year, alive my adulation of accent and wordplay, wrote a composition and beatific it to us alleged Chat Play. I’m about to apprehend it. But let me say afore I do that allotment of the adorableness of this composition are the puns and the changes in spelling which can’t absolutely be accepted by you alone alert to me apprehend this. So I’m activity to ask my acquaintance and ambassador Rick Engdahl to accommodate that in our Twitter feed on @RBIPodcast, and aloof adhesive it in so you can see an angel and absolutely acknowledge Andrew’s poem, Chat Play.
With homonymic playI adjure you hearAnd acquisition if hereI address what’s adapted or no.
I apperceive in hunters’ questThe deer is dear.Not so the abortive knotFor those who sew.
Pronunciation plays addition gameWhen avenue may beat with either out or suit.Though sounds battle they announce the sameFor accent is hardly absolute.
The comedy of ambiguity is deftWhen ambidextrous options are in sight.The one not alleged on your adapted is leftBut what you accept is on your larboard and right.
The archness of words is absolutely the schoolTo accomplish of me added of a Motley Fool.
Thank you, Andrew!
And finally, Rule Breaker mailbag annual No. 5. This one comes from Wade Cherry in about adjacent Reston, Virginia. Hello, neighbor! “You mentioned at one point apropos sports and amateur to investing. As I was cerebration about what you said, accurately about poker, as that’s a bold I enjoy, I do anticipate there’s a acceptable assignment to be gleaned from the bold of poker. As poker is, at its core, a bold of statistics, I like to anticipate about advance similarly. Like agreement a bet and not alive what the approaching holds, affairs a aggregation is analogous. While you don’t apperceive what will happen, your assay has assertive you that your play/investment is, to use a poker term, a absolute accepted value.
“But alike if your assay is correct, and you accept a aerial allotment adventitious of authoritative money/winning, you may absolutely lose money. Aloof because you lose money on an investment, you should accumulate in apperception that your advance may still accept been the actual accommodation at the time aback you purchased shares. While you should reanalyze advance losses, don’t argue yourself that you charge acquisition your ‘mistake.’ It may never accept been a mistake. I accept this is a acceptable assignment to remember.”
I’m activity to abeyance there for a sec afore activity to the end and say, that was a abundant point that Peter Lynch fabricated in his book One Up on Wall Street. He said aloof because a banal went up doesn’t necessarily consistently beggarly that you had it right. You may accept been a little lucky. And aloof because a banal went bottomward doesn’t beggarly you had it wrong. For me, there’s consistently activity to be a antithesis amid accordant with Lynch on that point, while at the aforementioned time, on the added side, authoritative abiding that we absolutely do pay absorption to outcomes and account them. In a ample sense, if it went up, you were right. If it went down, you were wrong. But in a added attenuate and nuanced and accurate sense, sometimes aback we’re right, we didn’t necessarily deserve to be right, and sometimes aback we’re wrong, we didn’t deserve to be wrong. So, abundant point, Wade!
He goes on. “In closing, I’ve listened to every RBI adventure aback day one, and feel that not alone do I accept a bigger butt of investing, but a bigger worldview. It’s admirable to be able to accept to you afterwards any political undertones, article that seems added attenuate nowadays. I adulation how you baptize arcane comments, and naturally, some Shakespeare into the mix. I charge say that ironically, some of my admired podcasts accept been the ones that aren’t about investing. I’m a gamer, so I adore alert to your Christmas board-game specials. But your podcast a few years ago about American ethics may accept been the best. I still bethink the values: liberty, enterprise, justice, resilience, and generosity.
“I don’t accept a catechism for you, I’m artlessly adored to be alert and adequate your podcast. Cheers, and acknowledge you for adversity a Fool gladly.” From one of my new besties, Wade Cherry.
Well, as I adapt my final bit of balladry to end this podcast, I aloof appetite to say, whether it was the omega of Wade Cherry or the alpha of Kurt Eliea, or anybody in between, and the abounding who wrote in and I couldn’t affection this podcast, and the abounding who never do address in, you aloof listen, and you learn, I hope, and you allotment it out. And I achievement you act, and you act bigger as a aftereffect of the assignment that we do on this podcast.
Before I abutting with what I try to present on this podcast every year, my account of addition user-submitted poem, Why We Invest, I appetite to accomplish abiding that I acknowledge my producer, Rick Engdahl. He’s an outstanding resource. He’s done appealing abundant every distinct one of these podcasts every week. Occasionally, we’ll accept somebody abroad accomplished sub in. I’m about ashamed that I aloof alleged Rick a resource, because that’s not absolutely how I anticipate about him. I anticipate about Rick as a acquaintance and somebody who’s been at The Motley Fool, it seems like, about as continued as I have, and somebody with assorted talents, whether he’s cerebration about how to do The Motley Fool cast better, how to add fun. He’s a musician; he’s a abundant photographer. He does photo shoots of me. Or aftermath best of these podcasts. While I don’t absorb time accomplishing credits and rolling the credits every podcast like some others do, I appetite Rick to know, and I apperceive that he’s audition me adapted now, that I acutely acknowledge his efforts every anniversary to accompany Rule Breaker Advance to all of you.
One little acceptance on my part, which I occasionally acknowledgment aloof talking out the ancillary of my aperture at a affiliate event, absolution a few associates know, I consistently alpha and stop during this podcast. I do things like this, “Three, two, one. Let’s booty it again, Rick,” because I appetite to try to hit it every distinct time. I anticipate it aloof leads to a bigger podcast. But sometimes, bodies overrate my eloquence. They anticipate that I allege continuously in abounding sentences afterwards anytime stopping. The accuracy is, every distinct week, I alpha and stop a few dozen times. Allotment of what Rick does is, he pulls out all those starts and stops. I anticipate one podcast, maybe two and a bisected years ago, I was alert to it afterwards accepting done it, and I heard myself alive on that podcast go, “Three, two, one,” because Rick, already out of 10,000 times, absent me accomplishing that. And it was amusing to me to hear, broadcasting to you on this podcast, I aloof go “Three, two, one,” and restart, adapted in the average of that one podcast. That’s allotment of what Rick does every week. He takes out all my starts and stops to actualize the best end product, which is what I’m consistently cutting for for you. Three, two, one, go!
Every year at this time, I allotment with you one of my admired haikus. It’s not aloof a three-liner, though. It’s an continued anatomy of haiku. It’s one haiku afterwards addition in stanzas. It was submitted by longtime Motley Fool member, absolutely a ancestors — in fact, I do accept it’s a brace of two sisters who aloof took the appellation aural our association Captain Haiku. Afore I barrage into their haiku, Why We Invest, I’ll aloof acknowledgment that they were reacting to article that I had accounting before, one of the introductions to one of our account newsletters at the time, I anticipate it was Rule Breakers. It was my Why We Advance column. I’m activity to aloof apprehend the allotment that they’re referencing, pause, and afresh go adapted into their poem. And this is how we’re closing out, so let me aloof say adapted now, let me be the aboriginal to say Adored New Year, and acknowledgment a lot for listening! Let’s accept a abundant year in 2019!
OK, here’s what I wrote. I wrote, “Here’s why we invest. For our accouchement and grandchildren. Because our parents and grandparents did and fabricated our lives so abundant better. Because every dollar we advance supports the companies and businesses we admire. Because we adulation and bless buying and we accept this apple will be far stronger for added owners, not added renters. Because the academics are wrong. Because with Arthur O’Shaughnessy and his ode, we are the music makers, and we are the dreamers of dreams, advance as our apparatus and authoritative dreams appear accurate — sorry, Disney — is a complete complete Motley Fool goal. I see it happened with amazing testimonials, balderdash bazaar or no, every day on our altercation boards.”
And now, actuality comes Captain Haiku.
Sorry, can’t truncate. Each chat has acceptation and heart.Not selfish, we build.
Many years gone byhard work, adamantine times. Acceptable times, too.Haiku needs little.
Why do we invest?So that our adamantine assignment enduresbeyond our abbreviate years.
So that our children start their journeys on a hill and see the mountain.
We body battlements that endure, apartment othersfrom the affliction of storms.
We barrage athletic ships, we will not see the far shorebut accept no regrets.
We are a baby part of all we set in motionand thus, we invest.
As always, bodies on this affairs may accept absorption in the stocks they allocution about, and The Motley Fool may accept academic recommendations for or against, so don’t buy or advertise stocks based alone on what you hear. Apprentice added about Rule Breaker Advance at rbi.fool.com.
