“Money Life Market Call” with Buffalo Early Stage Growth Fund PM Doug Cartwight

August 19, 2021


Buffalo Funds Early Stage Growth co-portfolio manager Doug Cartwright, CFA, recently appeared on the “Money Life with Chuck Jaffe” podcast.

During the call, Doug goes in-depth on small-cap investing, providing an overview of his investment methodology, and also provides his thoughts on the following companies:

  • Accel Entertainment (NYSE: ACEL)
  • DraftKings (NASDAQ: DKNG)
  • Rush Street Interactive (NYSE: RSI)
  • Community Healthcare Trust (NYSE: CHCT)
  • Trupanion (NASDAQ: TRUP)
  • LendingTree (NASDAQ: TREE)

We define early stage as having a new product or a new service or a new way of going to market or a new way of doing things. And then we tend to look at companies that are disruptive either because they have a superior product or a better way of doing things or a better way of going to market.
