Livewire Podcast

Patrick Poke at Livewire hosted us, and we talk Disney, our top picks in digital health, growth investing, and why we've been so optimistic.

I also recommend 'Billion Dollar Molecule', a mix of Barbarians at the Gate and Liar's Poker... but for pharmaceutical companies.

Available here.

From Livewire: Michael FrazisFounder and Portfolio Manager at Frazis Capital Partners, is positive about the outlook for equities. Despite the obvious challenges the world faces, a combination of monetary and fiscal stimulus, and economies that are beginning open back up, should present a perfect setup for growth equities. But that doesn’t mean investors can be blasé about what they buy. He warns that in some popular sectors, prices have gotten too high in some names.

“Even in the hottest parts of the market, where there’s companies trading on 25-35 times sales or more, there are companies trading on a tenth of that. I think it’s extraordinarily important now to dodge some of those companies.”
