Episode 042: Spencer Jakab on Robinhood, Reddit, and Meme Stocks, host Rick Ferri

Spencer Jakab is the Editor of the "Heard on the Street" column for the Wall Street Journal and the author of two books. His new book is "The Revolution That Wasn't: GameStop, Reddit and the Fleecing of Small Investors," which is the topic of our conversation. Previously he wrote "Ahead of the Tape" published in 2015. Prior to joining the WSJ, Spencer was an analyst and later a director of emerging markets equity research at Credit Suisse.

 

Back in 2020, when millions of mostly young people opened brokerage accounts for the first time while sheltering from the Covid-19 pandemic, it seemed like they could do no wrong, even as some legendary investors could do no right. But that all changed after a climactic battle between the haves and have-nots during January 2021. In this surreal interview, we look back over the rise and fall of meme stocks, young and wild Robinhood traders, COVID checks and easy credit, and the Reddit revolution that wasn't.

Episode 038: Ted Aronson, host Rick Ferri

Ted Aronson of AJO Partners joins me for a candid discussion about Vanguard's plans to bring private equity to the masses and their addition of actively managed funds to their Personal Advisor Services (PAS) program. We begin with a tribute to David Swenson, the late OIC of Yale Endowment and the founder of the Yale Model, commonly known in the investing world as the Endowment Model. David was outspoken about why individual investors should avoid private equity, and how difficult it is to pick active fund managers who will outperform the capital markets. 

 

Ted joined Drexel Burnham Lambert in 1974 while still a graduate student. He was a member of the Quantitative Equities Group, which managed the Revere Fund, the first actively managed fund registered with the SEC to employ Modern Portfolio Theory. Prior to forming AJO, Ted founded Addison Capital Management. Ted was past chair of the CFA Institute and the Association for Investment Management & Research and is a CFA charterholder. He is also a trustee of Spelman College and chair of its investment committee.
