The Surprisingly Simple Power of Value Vesting with Gary Smith

Guest: Gary Smith

Description: Exactly what is value vesting and why should every investor be familiar with it? Author and economist Gary Smith joins host Jordan Goodman to talk about Value Vesting and Smith’s new book Money Machine: The Surprisingly Simple Power of Value Vesting. Smith and Goodman talk about what value vesting is and what it isn’t, how it’s different than investing methods that try to time the market, and why value investors look at investments so differently than what most contemporary investment strategies recommend. Smith talks about why gold and collectibles are not investments that value investors turn to and why value investors like investments with solid dividends and earnings at a low price. Smith brings his customary common sense and well thought out understandings of the interplay between market,psychology and finance to a conversation that every level of investor should find interesting and fruitful.
