Compounders: The Anatomy of a Multibagger

The Building Blocks of a 100-Bagger with Chris Mayer, Portfolio Manager at Woodlock House Family Capital fund

May 10, 2022

My guest on the show today is Chris Mayer, the Portfolio Manager of the Woodlock House Family Capital fund and the co-founder of the firm. He is also the author of 100 Baggers: Stocks That Return 100-to-1 and How To Find Them. You will notice that we are doing something a little different with this episode. Chris is our first guest who is not an executive at a public company. But, since this podcast is called Compounders: The Anatomy of a Multibagger, we thought it would be great to have on the guy who literally wrote the book on finding 100-baggers. In this wide-ranging interview, Chris and I discussed:

  • The common attributes of 100-baggers Chris found in his study of compounders;
  • The biases that make it hard for investors to realize a 100-bagger;
  • Why individual investors might be more likely than are institutional investors to get the full benefit of decades of compounding;
  • Where serial acquirers fit within the 100-bagger paradigm; and
  • Why high incremental returns on capital are so important to long-term success
