How to Capitalize on a Manic Depressive Market
Whitney George explains how he spots value
Whitney George, portfolio manager of the Sprott Focus Trust, is a career-long value investor who has described himself at times as a “Buffett groupie” reflecting his long-standing admiration of the legendary investor.
Like Buffett, George seeks to capitalize on the manic depressive behavior of the aggregate stock market, a group author Benjamin Graham memorably referred to as Mr. Market—the fictitious business partner who impulsively offers to sell his share of the business or to buy the reader’s share every day.
Unlike Buffett, however, George seeks value investment opportunities in gold and silver mining stocks, a practice Buffett famously eschews.
In this exclusive interview with the Sprott U.S. Holdings CEO, Rick Rule, George takes us through his career as professional money manager and explains his rare interest in both value investing and natural resource companies.
