SECULAR RISK & THREATS TO LONGTERM TOP LINE & EARNINGS GROWTH ARE INCREASING WITH CHANGING TECHNOLOGY

May 31, 2019
It’s the first week of the spring fundraising season on Public Television, so WEALTHTRACK might not be airing on your local channel. Consequently, we are revisiting a recent exclusive interview with Fund Manager of Year winner David Giroux on the growing secular risks in companies. You can watch the episode again here.

NEW THIS WEEK…
One of the most shocking and intriguing insights shared by this week’s guest David Giroux, Head of Investment Strategy at T. Rowe Price is that 31% of S&P 500 companies are being disrupted by secular risk and the threats to their long term top line and earnings growth are increasing, as are the number of companies affected. A huge source of the risk is changing technology. A large group of T. Rowe Price’s portfolio managers and analysts recently returned from the firm’s annual trip to Silicon Valley where they pick the brains of top executives of leading tech-oriented companies. The firm is sharing its findings with us in their recently published report, “Technological Innovation and Disruption.” It’s a fascinating read.

SUSTAINABLE GROWTH AT REASONABLE PRICES: WHAT IN THE WORLD IS GREAT INVESTOR MARK YOCKEY FINDING?

May 24, 2019

International investing star Mark Yockey joins us in a WEALTHTRACK Exclusive to discuss his global stock picks.

With episodic exceptions, the U.S. has been the place to invest since the global financial crisis. There have been occasional bouts of outperformance by European and emerging markets, specific geographical locals and individual countries but overall, the U.S. markets trajectory has been higher, the U.S. economy stronger and the dollar dominant.

The past year is a case in point. No matter where you looked around the world currencies weakened against the dollar. From the Japanese yen and the Swiss franc to the Indian rupee and the South Korean won, to the British pound and the Euro to the Chilean peso and Brazilian real.
