Another great episode, loving this podcast, keep up the good work. Have watched the A2M rise from 70c to +$7 over the last few years, i was a sceptic for a long time, but it keeps going up!. BUB and WHA are the bigger worries, valuations there use A2M as the base case and are truly outrageous and clearly in bubble territory. The retail investor logic goes that if A2M can do I, so can they. dangerous thinking and likely to end badly.
