Powerful Interviews

Post melt-down regret is beginning to set in for investors who sold in March after being taunted by economic as well as market recoveries. Alex refers often to money flows driven by the fear of missing out, FOMO.
The NetWorth Radio dashboard of great research expands this week again building on last week’s fascinating focus on the popular and pricey FAANG group. The obvious group deemed Covid-19 immune beneficiaries of the pandemic.
But, wait! What comes next? Is this a head fake?
Bill Miller’s Bloomberg Radio podcast link will also be included in our next free subscription list email update for clients and listeners. The discussion from a 40 year value veteran unfolds a key scenario that builds on our program from last week.
The vital intelligence here projects one of the most important potential shifts likely for the second half of 2020: money flow moving from growth to value.
Valuable investment intelligence for effective decisions often begins with a clear picture of what has happened leading to future scenarios and possible outcomes. The benefits of clearly defined objectives then provide a logical list of choices to accomplish those goals over longer time horizons.
