Have you ever lost money in the stock market by listening to friends? My next guest did exactly that in the year 2000, during the dot-com bubble, but he hit the reset button and made some big changes 5 years later. In this episode, he talks about his strategy which includes starting with companies he knows followed by reading or listening to earnings reports. He states that earnings reports are not only a great place to learn the company direction but you can learn the leadership story as well as how the culture is shaped. Overall, his strategy has allowed him to earn an average of 20% per year over the last 15 years. Please welcome Gaurav Kotak.
