Ben Felix of PWL Capital – Personal opinion

Yeah, I have to admit, I don’t agree with a few of the things that Ben Felix of PWL Capital (based in in Ottawa) says in his YouTube video series. More his assertion that the stockmarket is efficient, is forward looking, etc.

The naming of Ben’s channel “Common sense investing” and the style of his presentation would naturally give off the impression that Ben Felix is the man who knows what he is talking about. I would however caution people against settling into any sense of security so to speak, especially when it comes to finance and economics.

Certainly, look at his videos, but apply it with a healthy pinch of salt. A healthy dose of scepticism as with anything in the financial sector wouldn’t go amiss. Seeing comments such as “I got clicked baited into this video and I’m not disappointed” is a red flag in my mind for Astroturfing activity (Fake grassroots praise).

To be honest, apart from the purposes of imparting Ben’s view, I think the video series may be primarily more of an advertising mechanism to get PWL’s name “out there” so to speak.
