If you can't sit on billions in cash like Warren Buffett or Sam Zell, what the hell should you do with your portfolio during all this uncertainty?

    Great interview! Amazing insights. Please avoid interviews like the one with Mahmood Noorani. It's better to post 1 quality interview monthly (like this one) rather than just posting interviews for the sake of posting content.

    Very good. Some of this sounds very similar to the strategy of William J O'Neil, one of the great growth stock investor who founded IBD. Interestingly the Investor Business Daily Newspaper was put together for O'Neil's benefit.

      Thank you. Yes, William O'Niel and Mark Minervini are some of my influences when it comes to investing. So has George Soros, Jimmy Rogers, and Benjamin Graham. Everyon's style morphs through influences. In kind-of like rock guitarists...they all started with Jimmy Hendrix. :-)

    Brilliant ! Thank you. This is the quality I am looking for from RV. Louis is a real professional money manager with a real process as opposed to chasing the tape. He follows a well thought out and tested asset allocation strategy within a risk management framework. Louis is articulate and gave us a real look under the hood, and he didn't need to lean on the "buy because the Fed is printing money" narrative once as his excuse as to why he is 60% invested.

    If we have big deflation, isn't it going to hurt gold alot? curious why gold mining is considered a good investment given the big deflation scenario.

      It starts as deflation, then moves to stagflation and ultimately inflation. Gold historically has acted as a store of value which can not be debased...since it has a limited supply. The cash in your pocket has less purchasing power today than yesterday... and that is because the supply of dollars has been drastically increased just in the last few months....Do yourself a favor and compare Gold to the S&P 500 starting in 2000. Why 2000? Mainly because the Fed has actively controlled the supply of money and interest rates and has distorted paper (fiat) money's value/purchasing power. The Fed can not print gold.

      The real price of gold goes down in a business expansion and goes up in a business contraction. Gold miners best performing time period is in a post bubble contraction. These come around every 60 years or so and we just started one, Back up the truck
