Radio Show

Do Texans have an advantage in the current market cycle!? Think back to Christmas Eve last year, the bottom in the Dow. Our broadcast then and up to that point during 2018 focused on 2 key potential advantages:
The Federal Reserve tightening cycle was spring loading forward returns in well managed, Global High Yield Bond funds by driving them to deep discounts below par maturity values.
Texas was emerging as the key global epicenter of Energy Production and Energy Infrastructure.
While dire headlines were enough to convince large numbers of investors that a Recession and extended Bear Market were unfolding, NetWorth Radio focused on quantifiable, sustainable forward cash flow at discounted prices.
Fast forward to our April earnings season!
