Deep value investing is about buying companies that other investors don’t want. It is about investing in companies where the current situation doesn’t look great – actually in many cases it looks horrible. On average, investors tend to overestimate the problems in these types of businesses and as a result, stocks of these companies get cheap. But f…
 
Last week we interviewed a few pastors in deconstruction. This week we started a conversation with some pastor’s wives who are outside of organized religion. We feel like we were just getting started with the conversation, but it is very real and should help people understand the problems in white, evangelical Christianity are very common and often…

This week, we look at some interesting research that took a unique approach to explaining the value and size premiums. We examine the paper "Migration" by Eugene Fama and Kenneth French.

So, one of our shoes is the Good Bones show where two ladies remodel homes by totally stripping them down to the foundation and the frame. It reminded me of deconstruction, so I wanted to incorporate it into a episode. The mom on the show is always rescuing little things from the demolition to repurpose. So, we wondered what we would repurpose or s…

The last 40 years have been an exceptionally strong period for a portfolio of stocks and bonds.

In this finale episode, I ask bestselling author Keith Giles some of the questions that I've heard most often from folks who are deconstructing. Why did Jesus have to die? What happened on the cross? What do I do with the resurrection? Where did this monster version of God come from? What does it mean to be born again? And many other questions. Nea…
 
Investors tend to associate momentum with growth stocks. If you try to name a typical momentum stock off the top of your head, you will probably think of names like Google or Facebook or Amazon. And that is especially true when we have gone through a growth dominated period like we have in the past decade. But the reality is that momentum doesn't c…
 
A lot of us in the desert wonder about ministry. We were always told that we needed to have a ministry. But, why do we need a ministry?

What if we applied this to “ministry.” What if we would focus on being who we are and …

Many investors think all value strategies are fairly similar to each other. And as a result they expect the value funds they invest in will all perform similarly over time.

This may be a touchy subject because some people love Easter and celebrating Holy Week. This year, we wondered why we didn’t miss it? Should we feel guilty? Are we bad people?

This is a topic we know many struggle with, including ourselves!

This was an off-the-cuff topic from a blog I posted on Patheos this weekend. It was about Carl Jung wrestling with his understanding of God at age 12 when he saw a vision of a giant turd coming from the throne of God and smashing the cathedral where he lived. Carl Jung has given us much to help us along in the journey, so I’m interested in what he …
 
Systematic value strategies have had one of the worst performing periods in their history in the past decade.

There is a popular narrative out there that value investing is back. And it makes sense given the huge run that many value funds have had off the market bottom.
