Podcast Review | The Pomp Podcast : Ian Cassel on Micro Cap Investing

By Ben Rundle | Portfolio Manager at NAOS Asset Management

Ian Cassel is an micro-cap investor I started following on Twitter recently and have already learned a huge amount from his investing process. Ian is the founder of the Micro Cap Club which is a members only website where investors will pitch stock ideas on a regular basis. He is also the CIO of Intelligent Fanatics Capital Management.

 In researching companies, Ian looks for four key attributes;

  1. A company that can grow through a recession
  2. A balance sheet that can weather a storm and act with occasional boldness
  3. A stock which can conservatively double based on fundamentals over 2-3 years
  4. Intelligent, fanatic leadership

He also delves into his investing mistakes and the lessons he has taken from them, as well as discussing one of the most difficult questions in investing of “when to sell?” I think most investors of all levels of experience will get a lot out of this podcast.
