Welcome to ValueTalk with Raul.

All right. Yeah, so I just wanted to welcome my listeners to a very special episode. I have Andrew Stotz, CEO of A. Stotz Investment research and valuation master. Andrew, welcome to the show. Thank you very much. I'm glad to be here. All right. Yeah. If you just tell me about your background, and what led you to finance and investing.

So I was in University at Cal State Long Beach many, many years ago in about 1987. And I was, you know, looking at classes I like economics, I found accounting a bit boring. I thought, human resource and marketing, those types of things were pretty easy. So I thought I'll try finance and that's how I got into finance. Now, take go 30 some years later, and you realise holy crap, marketing is much more much harder than I thought. But I learned I've learned a lot over the years, I've basically got into finance. I moved to Thailand. I worked for, originally, I worked for Pepsi in Los Angeles, for three years in the operations, basically in the warehouse and in the manufacturing plants. And then I moved to Thailand to teach finance, which I did for one year from 1992 until 1983. And then in 1993, I was about 28 years old, and I got a job as a research analyst. And I can just tell you that, that day, I realised this is what I want to do for the rest of my life is to be an analyst. And that passion has never left me and it's been, you know, 27 years now.
