We Study Billionaires - The Investor’s Podcast

Guest
In this episode, William Green chats with Chris Bloomstran, President & Chief Investment Officer of Semper Augustus. This conversation is so rich that it’s been divided into two episodes. Here, in Part 1, Chris explains how to achieve long-term success by seeking a “dual margin of safety” that comes from owning high-quality businesses at attractive prices. He also warns about the perennial dangers of irrational exuberance, which he now sees in hot stocks like Tesla & Nvidia.
