“US Global Investors (GROW) – In 2Q 2020 we took a 4% position in a tiny asset manager with the expectation that with the eventual market recognition that its airline focused ETF, JETS, has grown from sub $100mm in assets to over $1.2b, would result in a substantial price adjustment. In short, rather than gamble in the wild casino of 2020 markets, we wanted to own the casino operator instead. This was a short term, earnings event driven investment and while we were hoping for a healthier pop, in the end we exited most of our position in low to mid $3s for a blended 30% return, the capital from which we committed to our purchase of ECOM, as our preference is usually to hold less risky, more longer-term oriented Core Portfolio positions.”
