WHAT 10 PODCASTS ARE BEST FOR AUSTRALIAN SHARE MARKET INVESTORS?

Here are 10 investing podcasts that are useful for Australian share market investors in 2021

These are the 10 investing podcasts that I tended to listen to mostly in 2020, and will no doubt provide some good content in 2021. This is from the perspective of an Australian investor that mostly focuses on picking stocks on the ASX. You can however find many good podcasts here for investors all around the globe.

  1. The Acquirers Podcast This is a podcast about finding undervalued stocks, deep value investing, hedge funds, shareholder activism, buyouts, and special situations. We uncover the tactics and strategies for finding good investments, managing risk, dealing with bad luck, and maximizing success.
  2. The Australian Investors Podcast The Australian Investors Podcast is a weekly podcast, featuring laid-back but intelligent short- and long-form conversations about markets, business, psychology, lessons learned and investment process.
  3. Chris Judd’s Talk Ya Book Shines a light on the investment processes used by Australia’s best investors as they talk through their highest conviction investment idea.
  4. Equity Mates Investing You’ll find plenty of information to help you on your investing journey, regardless of your level of experience.

  7. Liverwire The Rules of Investing Livewire is Australia’s fastest-growing investment website, showcasing ideas, analyses and strategies from hundreds of the country’s most respected fund managers and investment professionals.
  8. Planet MicroCap Educating the Next Generation of Investors in MicroCap Stocks
  9. QAV QAV stands for QUALITY AT VALUE. Tony’s approach is to use a checklist to find companies that are performing well (quality) but which can also be bought at a discount (value). It’s basically what is usually called “value investing”.
  10. We Study Billionaires We Study Billionaires, hosted by Preston Pysh and Stig Brodersen, is the flagship podcast of The Investor’s Podcast Network, with more than 40 Million downloads. On the show, they interview and study famous financial billionaires including Warren Buffett and Howard Marks, and they teach you what they learn and how you can apply their investment strategies in the stock market.

Like other investors these days with global investing now very accessible, I have an interest in investing podcasts from content creators outside of Australia as well. So you will notice quite a few of these podcasts feature investors from all across the globe, not only Australia.

I thought I would make this blog post because

  1. It is a good time of year to chill out and listen to some podcasts.
  2. Perhaps some of the above ten I came up with might be new to some readers.
  3. Perhaps readers can tell me of some podcasts that I did not mention above that might be new and interesting for me.
  4. As a thanks to the content creators above putting so much time and effort into podcasts these days. Only 5 years ago I did not find much around for ASX investors.

Here is my list again in alphabetical order.

    1. Great hope you find something on the list you get some value out of. All the best in 2021 for your own podcast work I look forward to listening again.

      1. thanks Steve ( and Cameron)

        one episode i think you may enjoy is this one about BKW and SOL and their boss, quite a character and doing very well..
        Listen to Interview: Lindsay Partridge, Building the Future from Australian Investors Podcast in Podcasts. https://podcasts.apple.com/au/podcast/australian-investors-podcast/id1414707038?i=1000494670777

        I like listenning to Grants Interest Rate Observer of the AIr – Current Yield podcast but I’m not sure if many people would like it, its by a 72 year old and US rates focussed, a bit meandering and esoteric. but i like !

        Tony Hansen might also have been on same podcast which was great to learn a bit more about him.

      2. I like your thinking there Simon, a bit of long term investing thinking from experienced campaigners in those. And an “old economy” style stock example. As you suggested maybe not the most popular in today’s market sentiment. I like those ones anyway.

      3. Yes I remember you mentioned that Cameron. Thanks although I think my skillset is more of a podcast listener rather than participant but never say never I suppose. I just came away from some time on twitter today seeing people post their “long term” 12 month performance numbers. After thinking my portfolio went ok the last 6-12 months am now suffering from FOMO and feeling like a dud!

        Generally speaking though the idea of getting some investors on a podcast that aren’t managing hundreds of millions is interesting. Most of the podcasts tend to be with investors managing say $100 mill plus, whereas I am sure the listeners on average are not! Therefore the lessons we draw from listening to such investors should be taken in that context. Their strategies may not necessarily be suitable for the average listener. So I think it is a good area to keep tapping into for a podcast.

      4. What the heck are ““long term” 12 month performance numbers”? I thought you could only have one or the other.

        As for FOMO, one thing I’ve learned from Tony over the last couple of years is that he only cares about whether or not he hits his benchmark (which is 2X the AORD). If he can achieve that, with relatively low risk and low effort, he’s content. If other people get better returns, good for them. But Buffett’s benchmark is around 20% pa on average over many decades, so that seems to be a good target to aim for.

      5. Yeah that might be a fair enough ideal goal to have in mind if things go really well and a good way to think about it. If you fall short and deliver 1.5 times the benchmark it is still extremely good.

        In some ways it seems a bit weird in setting a goal of near Buffett’s numbers. But if Buffett was only working with my portfolio size he would probably be doing 40-50% per annum over the next decade.

      6. Well Tony’s been getting ~20% pa on average for ~25 years, so that’s why we have it as our goal now, but I think in the early years his goal was to see if he could do better than an index fund. He’s often told me that if we can’t beat an index fund by a substantial margin on a consistent basis, we should give up and just put our funds in WAM.

      7. Agree that if you can’t get that clear edge over the index probably should outsource. I’d instead probably just go nearly all index ETFs if that was the case. A bit of WAM 10 yrs ago I could probably get comfortable when they were more nimble and at a big discount. Trickier now. 10 years ago for your international exposure one might have picked Platinum with magnificent historical numbers. They have found it tough since so tough to know sometimes who the future alpha generators are.

  1. Just a shameless plug of our own podcast as suggested at the end of your post Cameron.

    http://www.trawlingfortenbaggers.com

    We try and be a bit distinctive and admittedly often cover more speculation than value and patience plays. However we do try and do things a bit different to most Australian focused financial podcasts currently out there.

    Our guests are from a variety of backgrounds, but all with deep experience in small and nano cap ASX companies.

    1. Thanks for the link I like to look over the very small end of the market so this looks quite suitable for me. I hadn’t come across it previously so look forward to giving it a listen.
