Stinson Dean – Talking Lumber

Hosted by
Bill Brewster

Bill Brewster is a private investor. He cohosts the podcast Value: After Hours with Tobias Carlisle and Jake Taylor. Tobias, Jake and Bill met at a Berkshire Hathaway meeting and formed a lasting friendship. And, as it turns out, people really like the podcast.

While Bill tries to replicate Warren Buffett and Charlie Munger’s thought processes, he is heavily influenced by Bill Miller III, Stan Druckenmiller, and others. This podcast is his attempt to dig deeper into other investing/business philosophies and share the knowledge with the world.

Stinson Dean (@lumbertrading on Twitter), owner of Deacon Lumber, stops by The Business Brew to discuss the current lumber market, what happened to lumber in 2020, and how the market got to where it is. This is a long conversation, but deserves the length. Stinson goes deep into what it means to trade physical lumber, how he manages risk, why he is hedged, and much, much more.

The goal of this conversation was to have a calmer conversation about lumber than what may have occurred just a year ago. Lumber is an extremely volatile market and Stinson is a fantastic person to discuss the market with. We hope you enjoy this conversation.
