Inside Investing, Podcast Episode #1

Welcome to the first episode of the Inside Investing podcast.

Each week, James Marlay, co founder of Livewire Markets, and I will take you inside the investing world we experience each week as we produce our newsletters.

We will discuss interesting conversations or conferences we have enjoyed, highlight insightful articles from both our newsletters, and share some quirky moments in the markets. We will also invite high profile guests to share their views.

Livewire Markets 

The content on Livewire complements Cuffelinks as it has a greater focus on stock picking, often sharing the ideas of prominent fund managers in an entertaining video format. Livewire publishes each day and for those of you managing your own portfolios, it can give new investment ideas and thoughts to start the day. I have enjoyed Livewire for many years, and talking to James (a millennial) sometimes gives me (a baby boomer) a different perspective which we hope to share with both our audiences. For Cuffelinks readers not familiar with Livewire, I recommend visiting their website and registering for the daily newsletter.

Please click on the podcast below, and links to the articles are listed under the podcast. Inside Investing podcasts are available on iTunes here.
