Christopher Seifel is an equity research analyst and runs the newsletter Seifel Capital (link here). Chris is one of the sharpest investors/analysts on Twitter, and it shows. He’s quickly grown his Twitter following to over 13K.
Chris focuses on high growth companies, portfolio construction and general market commentary. His newsletter articles feature deep dives on new and interesting companies while distilling the thesis down into the 1-3 most important drivers. It’s a tremendous skill and something I’m constantly working on.
We spend over an hour discussing Crowdstrike $CRWD (Chris’ largest holding), Unity Technology $U (disc: I am a shareholder), the CANSLIM method and how to do deep work analysis on an investment. This is one of those episodes you’ll have to hear twice.
