Welcome to the first issue of The Journal. My goal with The Journal is to post once a week a list of everything that I found interesting.
This $5 Billion Encrypted App Isn’t for Sale at Any Price By Stepan Kravchenko, Nour Al Ali, and Ilya Khrennikov
A Conversation with Charlie Munger and Michigan Ross – 2017 – 56 min
Mohnish Pabrai Lecture at Boston College (Carroll School of Mgmt) – Nov 30, 2017 – 140 min
Making a Flipbook Machine – 10 min
Last year for the first time, I grew vegetable plants in my backyard, and I found fascinating seeing the plants grow and eating fresh plants whenever I want. Now that it is winter, I am looking for a way to grow plants indoors, and I found out about The Smart Farm by Click And Grow. It is a ridiculous 9 900$ indoor farm that can grow 288 plants. When I was doing some research to look at commercial uses of vertical framing and their benefits, I found these two videos very interesting.
The Investor Podcast
For about two weeks, I have been listening to The Investor Podcast. I used to listen to some of their podcasts and now, that I am more interested in value investing, I have listened to all their episodes until episode 123. I have learned a lot from listening to their podcasts, and I would recommend them to everybody who wants to learn more about value investing.
The Dhandho Investor
I finished reading this week The Dhandho Investor by Mohnish Pabra. The book is very interesting and filled with useful information about how to invest in the stock market or a business without losing money and obtaining a high return on your investment. I would recommend the book, like the podcasts, to everybody who wants to learn more about value investing.
For about three years, I have have been very passionate about the stock market and all things business. After acquiring a pretty good knowledge about the stock market, by any mean, I am not an expert I decided to become a contributor to seekingalpha.com. I wrote two articles, one last month and one this week. Please, check it out and any feedback will be really appreciated.
Thanks for reading, happy holidays and see you next week!
