Stig Brodersen co-hosts the Investors Podcast, a show that studies billionaires and talks about books they read while interviewing people they like to interact with.
Stig says it isn’t complicated to invest in stocks, “but it’s definitely time consuming, and I think that’s probably one of the problems that we are facing as investors.”
Then Doug takes it to the Panel and asks:
- How much time should someone spend researching before making an investment?
- What short cuts are there for doing stock research?
- Do you think P/E is an important measure in stock selection?
- What is a key statistic/ratio that makes you love or hate a stock

About our sponsor, BUZZ Index
Ever wonder if there were a way to capitalize on all of that online chatter made by millions of investors on social media? Well, your wait is over, because now advances in Artificial Intelligence and Natural Language Processing technologies are at your fingertips…. even if you personally don’t use social media! The BUZZ Index, licensed to an exchange traded fund and trading under ticker symbol BUZ, provides investors with a portfolio of securities that delivers a basket of large cap U.S. equities exhibiting the highest degree of positive investor sentiment. No surveys. No guessing. BUZ only tracks what’s volunteered – and if you ARE online, you know that a lot of information is volunteered: millions of posts, comments and blogs are analyzed each month!
Here’s how it works:. First, BUZZ targets the most mentioned large cap U.S. stocks across the Social Media landscape. The more active the conversation, the greater the reliability of the BUZZ.
Each of the most-mentioned stocks is then given an insight score based on BUZZ’s proprietary analytics and the 75 stocks with the most Bullish scores are included in the Index. Each month the BUZZ is tracked to capture the latest Big Data driven insights and then the 75 companies with the most Bullish scores are selected, positioning BUZZ to capture the highest return potential.
