    Thanks for publishing detailed notes of this meeting. Two quick clarifications would help.

    – When exactly did this meeting take place?
    – Does he usually invite management team of his portfolio companies? (One of the questions in the Q&A was answered by the CFO of Horsehead Holdings.) Was there any other representation from other portfolio companies?

    • Hari September 25, 2015 at

      The meeting was held on Sep 12th 2015, this was the first time we saw representation from one of the portfolio companies. I believe this was an exception.

    Any thoughts on your perspective on Horsehead? The thesis the risk /reward and any reasons the position hasn’t been increased with the current market cap share price?

    • Hari October 8, 2015 at

      Horsehead is facing two challenges in my opinion. 1. Liquidity and 2. Execution. It will take time to sort things out but the management is confident of maintaining liquidity during this period.

    Hello Hari,

    First of all, a huge thank you for all the blogging and podcasts you do. It really helps a beginner like me to understand investing concepts. I am a recent graduate who started a career and have always had this curiosity to explore stock investing. Now that I am earning my own money I was looking to get into investing world and I found The Investors Podcast and you. Now I read your blogs and listen to TIP every day and I felt your work needs to be appreciated. Please take this emoticon as my token of thanks :-) and keep up your work.

    Thank you.
