Instead of the article of the week this week, we continue to introduce our short format podcast - Investor's Prescription. DGI Guy attempts to bore us all to death with an explanation of Monte Carlo simulations. This topic is one that we hear a little about in retirement planning. We all see it in online calculators, but nobody really knows what how it works. The goal here is to shed a little light on the topic.
Our special guest in this episode is Doug Meeks. Doug is a registered investment advisor who focuses on dividend growth stocks. You can find Part 1 of the interview here. In this second part of our two-part interview, we explore the following topics:
- What websites does Doug use for his screening process?
- Mistakes that have been made over his investing career
- When does Doug sell a stock? Because he is investing for others, are there added complexities to the thought process?
- Doug's favorite investing book (and one of DGI Guy's favorites): The Single Best Investment by Lowell Miller
- Doug's Other favorite investing book: The Intelligent Investor by Benjamin Graham
- Doug's favorite leisure author: Ernest Hemingway
- Closing Remarks & How to Contact Doug (piermoney.com)
Next week's guest is SA Editor Robyn Conti. Inspired by her open candor found here, we delve into the psychology of money and being open about some of our mistakes is the first major step in correcting the issue.
