Podcast: grow slow with these three B’s

12 August, 2022

In today’s Exponential Investor:

  • What starts with B and ends with P?
  • BlackRock and $10 trillion of access to crypto
  • Three things to do to survive a crypto winter

“Shae, is that a book about BP or BHP? British Petroleum, BP? Or BHP, I’m gunna dig a giant big hole in the ground, BHP?

These were the words spoken just off camera before we started rolling on today’s Exponential Investor podcast.

You see, Shae has a book.

Now on its own, that’s not anything of significance. We all have books.

But Shae’s is from the 1950s. And it’s a look back into the past of one of the UK’s biggest and most well-known companies, BP.

There’s another company that starts with B and ends with P. BHP, the giant Aussie miner.

And yes, there was a little confusion as to which company exactly Shae’s book was about!

Let’s blame it on the kids running amok at dinner time (in Australia).

Nonetheless, in today’s Exponential Investor podcast, we look at the two big “B’s” of the Aussie and British markets, BHP and BP.

These giants of the industry have been around for decades. They’ve had varying outcomes in terms of their stock prices – albeit over the long, long term, they have done very well for investors.

However, it’s not necessarily their capital values that make us look at companies like these. They are the proverbial “go slow” companies: huge in size, over time just eking out (sometimes) capital growth, but always cashed up, profit-making and dividend-paying.

Does this make them the perfect kind of stock to consider for investment then? Or are they as risky as some of the other volatile, smaller-cap stocks on global markets?

In this week’s Exponential Investor podcast, we dive into the big three B’s of the investing world (yes there’s another in there too).

What makes them tick, are they “buying the world” and how does going slow help investors get rich?
