In this episode of The Intelligent Investing Podcast, I sit down with Jim White to discuss his book Opportunity Investing.
As the famed value investor, Joel Greenblatt, had to say about the book:
“Jim White’s marvelous book Opportunity Investing is conclusive evidence of my belief that the secret to investing is to figure out the value of something – and then pay less. Dr. White offers magical advice on how to make big money while saving on capital gains. At the same time, he vividly illuminates the dire situations in Opportunity Zones and presents a wide range of innovative ideas for Opportunity Funds, including directing them toward education and non-profits.”
