The Value of Mispriced Assets

Please enjoy my latest episode.







Summary:


     In this episode of The Wealth Equation Podcast, your host, Maurice L. Wilson, discusses the value of mispriced assets and how to find them. He begins by defining assets and value, saying that “an asset is something that grows in value, generates income, or both” and “value is a fair return for something exchanged.” He then explains mispriced assets, using education as an example.

     

Maurice talks about how to find mispriced assets, identifying the mispriced assets in the last two recessions: dotcom companies and houses. He explains that during the current pandemic, the mispriced assets are basically everything! However, there are three areas that are faltering the most: entertainment, travel, and fine dining. Maurice goes over the stock market and its role in identifying mispriced assets. An investor does not have to enter blindly into a sector of business if there are publicly traded businesses in that sector.

     

At the end of the episode, Maurice advises investors on how to discover companies that are struggling from the pandemic and invest wisely in them. In the space of one morning, an investor can take a look at the Wall Street Journal to find the companies that are faltering, search for privately held businesses in the same sectors, and start conversations with those businesses about investment — taking on a silent partner or having a new majority owner, for example. If you find an asset that is mispriced due to the pandemic but will return to its pre-pandemic value in the future, then you have found a valuable asset at a great price.
