Starting off the week for The Daily Dive this week is David Barse, a returning guest and the founder and CEO of XOUT Capital. We start the interview off by discussing David’s recent Oscar win for the Summer of Soul Movie. The discussion then moves into the markets, addressing whether the Fed has the will to fight inflation, and whether they can avoid disorderly market conditions. Discussion then shifts to his evaluation methods, such as the impact of macro events like lockdowns on his analysis, and how he reads the oil markets in the current geopolitical climate.

We are seeking to decipher who is going to get affected negatively from technological change and eliminate those companies, explains David Barse, Founder and CEO, XOUT Capital. Their GraniteShares XOUT U.S. Large-Cap ETF (XOUT) uses algorithms to exclude companies that are not performing up to criteria and look at long term secular decline. They use things such as revenue growth, labor growth, profitability and buybacks for example. They score 500 of the largest market cap U.S. companies and remove the 250 that are not meeting their criteria. Included in the ETF are Apple (AAPL), Microsoft (MSFT) and Alphabet (GOOGL). Tune in for the strategy on this ETF.

David Barse comes on Resilient Advisor with Jay Coulter to share the findings from a recent paper on 'The Cost of Underestimating Technological Disruption.'
“They [analysts] are using traditional metrics to compare a company like Tesla to the original car manufacturers and that is just wrong,” he says. “If you apply a different valuation test and look at Tesla’s intangibles like its brand, patents and goodwill, these are huge and not factored into any of the [bear] price predictions.” Barse, who says Tesla is a “technology company masquerading as an auto company,” says the value of Tesla’s data (as collected form its cars to power its autonomous driving software) holds tremendous potential. “The future of its data applications could include Artificial Intelligence (AI), software services and myriad other applications,” he says. “The market is misanalyzing Tesla.”
Apple (AAPL), Microsoft (MSFT), Alphabet (GOOGL), Amazon (AMZN), Facebook (FB), Tesla (TSLA), Nvidia (NVDA), Johnson & Johnson (JNJ), UnitedHealth Group (UNH), Walmart (WMT) stocks are among XOUT Capital's top holdings. David Barse weighs in the ETF's performance and provides an outlook for XOUT Capital's third quarter rebalance strategy.

While virtually all investment strategies today focus on identifying thriving companies, not owning those left behind by technological change presents investors with a compelling opportunity to generate alpha." - XOUT Capital®.

Art by Woshibai David Barse chats with Larry Light on potential disruptors To David Barse, founder and CEO of XOUT Capital, health care is a prime area in need of technological help. Many critics have lambasted the medical establishment’s antique ways in everything from diagnostics to administration. A good remedy is fast-growing Teladoc Health, which provides online doctors’ appointments and other medical care, he said. The pandemic has given the company a boost, with the stock rising 14% since the start of the nation’s lockdown in early 2020, as revenue doubled. The stock is a favorite of market guru Cathie Wood, Barse pointed out.
