#56 - Lyn Alden - Network effects, Bitcoin & Finding Quality, Undervalued Stocks
On Friday 19th March I spoke to Lyn Alden, founder of Lyn Alden Investment Strategy. Lyn has been conducting investment research in various public and private capacities for over 15 years, and her methods have received global renown – Lyn has 165,000 followers on Twitter, and has contributed to sites like Business Insider, MarketWatch, CNBC, The Street, and Time’s Money Magazine.
Lyn’s edge lies in the intersection between Engineering and Finance – we discuss how this influences her unique investment approach, and how a Contrarian slant helps Lyn identify quality, undervalued stocks.
Also on the agenda are Network effects – we dig into their impact on businesses like Facebook and Amazon, and how their influence incited Lyn’s Bitcoin bet in April 2020. After an in-depth look at Lyn’s current portfolio, we discuss how stock market investors should navigate the tumultuous interest rate environment. Enjoy the episode!
