The stock market is filled with noise these days. Whether it is the obsession with meme-stocks, the focus on momentum-based swing trading, or the hype cycle driving valuations up to ridiculous levels, there are a lot of speculative (and potentially problematic) factors that are influencing investment decisions.
Our podcast guest today is someone who's helping to cut through that noise and help investors focus on the more important signals. Dillon Valdez (@BluSuitDillon on Twitter) in an individual investor who's searching for the business world's most important developing trends, then digging into fundamentals to uncover the companies who will most profitably benefit from them.
