Kyle welcomes back Mick Dillon, manager of the Brown Advisory Global Leaders fund. Mick, who was last on the podcast around a year ago, focuses on two common investing issues: false positives and false negatives. A false positive is when an investor believes a company is a good potential investment, but it turns out to be a bad company in disguise. A false negative is overlooking an investment that turns out to be a big winner.
