By now, everyone knows the story of GameStop, even if they’ve never been in one of its stores to buy a video game. In this month’s newsletter, David describes how the story of GameStop, and many other similar companies, is raising the question of whether this represents a new paradigm for investing.

In this month’s newsletter, David provides some perspective on the recent activity in stocks such as GameStop, AMC Theatres and Blackberry. While the actions around these may seem crazy, they are not much different than what were referred to as “pump and dump” schemes, just with a different group of promoters. He goes on to explain that, by following a tried and true approach to managing portfolios, these events in fact have no affect on us at all.

History buffs will know that he was referring to Montgomery’s defeat of Rommel and the Africa Korps in Egypt, and they will also know that Churchill was largely correct. In this month’s newsletter, David talks about war against COVID-19 over the past year and how we may now be moving to the beginning of the end.
