TDI Podcast: What Is Value Anyway? (#707)

Friday was best final hour surge for the markets in months and months.Itunes

Yields take a breather as end of quarter rotation benefits fixed income.

It is a celebration of our 14 year anniversary show – our good friend; Vitaly Katsenelson and bringing back the first guest we ever had on the show.

Born  and raised in Murmansk, Russia (the home for Russia‘s northern navy fleet, think Tom Clancy‘s Red October). Immigrated to the US from Russia in 1991 with all his  family three brothers, father, and stepmother.

His  professional career is easily described in one sentence: He invest, He educates, he writes, and he could not dream of doing anything else.

He is Chief Investment Officer at Investment Management Associates, Inc (IMA), a value investment firm based in Denver, Colorado. After he received his  graduate and undergraduate degrees in finance (cum laude) from the University of Colorado at Denver, and finished his  CFA designation, he wanted to keep learning. He figured the best way to learn is to teach. At first he taught an undergraduate class at the University of Colorado at Denver and later a Sideways-200-284graduate investment class at the same university that he designed based on his  day job.

He found that the university classroom was not big enough, so he started writing. He writes a monthly column for Institutional Investor Magazine and he has  written articles for the Financial Times, Barron‘s, BusinessWeek, Christian Science Monitor, New York Post, and the list goes on.

He was profiled in Barron‘s, and has  been interviewed by Value Investor Insight, Welling@Weeden, BusinessWeek, BNN, CNBC, and countless radio shows.
