TIP361: The Race for Space w/ Ben Claremon & Eugene Robin

Update: 2021-07-16


In today’s episode, Trey Lockerbie welcomes back Ben Claremon and Eugene Robin from Cove Street Capital. They quickly touch on the performance of Lumen Technologies, a stock they pitched on our show back in December 2020, whose price subsequently has risen 50% in Q1. But for this episode, Claremon and Robin mainly discuss the Race to Space and their position in Viasat. If you only follow the headlines, you would think Elon Musk is on an unencumbered path to space domination, especially with his satellite business under SpaceX called Starlink.


  • (24:49 ) How Viasat might currently be wildly underappreciated by the market
  • (06:15 ) How Starlink compares to Viasat in the future of satellite broadband
  • (01:02:49 ) Their intrinsic value of Viasat and much much more
