Top 10 Potential Surprises of 2020
Instead of the usual “predictions for 2020” being made in a host of financial-themed podcasts this year, Dan Ferris is doing something different to ring in the New Year. In this week’s episode, he gives his assessment of where the markets stand right now – what’s priced in, and what would surprise investors in 2020 in beyond. From an as-yet unforeseen market dip that sparks of a far bigger wave of panic selling, to the VIX, or “fear index” – here are the tea leaves you can read into – and biggest possible surprises to keep an eye out for – in 2020.

The Ultimate “Science of Success” Handbook
FEATURING: Albert-László Barabási
In our last broadcast of 2019, Dan Ferris quickly recaps what a year it’s been from a 27% gain for the stock market to $12 trillion negative interest-yielding bonds in the world, to the third-ever impeachment of a U.S. President. Even so – this episode isn’t dedicated to a year-end review of markets, which Dan notes just about everyone is doing now. Instead, it’s about reviewing the very best and most important episodes of Stansberry Investor Hour – including a few that have changed Dan’s life.

The Hidden Dangers of Private Equity-Backed Companies
FEATURING: Dan Ramussen
As signs of dangerous, unrestrained euphoria mount – including one Mitsubishi analyst publicly assuring investors this is a “zero-risk environment” Dan brings on a guest to this week’s show who is uniquely qualified to assess the hidden dangers of private equity-backed companies as Wall Street continues to gorge on private equity deals. Dan Rasmussen is the founder of Verdad Capital, who before that worked at Bain Capital and Bridgewater Associates. In 2017, he was named to the Forbes “30 under 30” list.

Where Do FAANG Stocks Go From Here?
Add $120,000 bananas to the list of market top indicators, as Dan explains what’s behind the artwork mania that’s taking place alongside frothy stock market valuations – and a $12 trillion bond bubble that’s only a little less insane than its August 2019 peak. Dan then gets to other metrics that warn valuations are looking increasingly toppish, before explaining why, counterintuitively, reality may not catch up to investors and markets for a long while.

What 2019 Has in Common With 1929
FEATURING: Ben Morris, Drew McConnell and Greg Diamond, CMT
We have a very special interview segment this week – a “trader’s roundtable” with three Stansberry colleagues who have spent years trading stock options, here to show their strategies and takes on what 2020 could bring for investors. As every year winds down, it’s natural to reflect on how the market’s done for the last 12 months. But Dan says there are only two specific situations where it actually pays off – and now is one of the times to take a hard look at the overall stock market.

How to Find the Next Business Genius
Dan starts out this week by continuing his discussion of share repurchases.  He’ll show you the man who put share repurchases on the map, investing legend Henry Singleton (1916-1999).  Singleton was an MIT-trained PhD engineer who liked to play chess without looking at the board, preferring to keep it all in his head.  Dan talks about the two things Singleton did to secure his reputation as a bona fide business genius.

A Warning We Haven't Seen Since 2008
This week’s episode is all about stories, including a dive by Dan into numbers and statistics, and which ones to disregard in a world where the vast majority of data is just noise. For instance, the private equity firm KKR’s bid for a record-breaking acquisition is capping a pattern that we really haven’t seen since 2008. It’s a $57 billion acquisition, or more than $70 billion if you include debt to be acquired, but Dan shows why those numbers are actually distractions to the much bigger story and historical warning at hand.

Michael is a five-time author whose financial background includes work at Solomon Brothers before an undercover group of investors caught his attention for their new way of doing things – and far superior profit-making abilities. Michael pulls back the veil on trend following in this episode, explaining how to know when to act on a possible trend, and why you can ignore almost all of the information about any company or commodity you’re deluged with to focus on five constant questions.

What a Difference a Year Makes
With no guest this week, Dan is free to look back on the first year of his predictions and observations since taking the helm of Stansberry Investor Hour roughly a year ago. From the ongoing bull market, still standing even after a few rough patches, to the rash of IPOs and continuing dominance of FAANG stocks, there’s a lot to unpack. Dan gets to Google’s eye-popping growth in its latest report, and Beyond Meat’s first-ever profit that, seemingly paradoxically, took a bite out of its share price – though the stock is down 22% since Dan recorded based on what Dan calls a far more significant Tuesday development for share price.

The Surprisingly Good Reason Bond Prices Are Crashing
WeWork is in the news with preparations for its IPO, and Dan targets his weekly rant on the company’s mission you’ll never be able to deduce from its IPO filings. With its mission statements reading like mantras – “elevate the world’s consciousness, community company committed to maximum global impact,” Dan gets to the really damning statistic buried deep in the filing – “the bigger they get, the bigger their losses get. This thing ain’t working.” Dan then gets to the bubble in late-stage private financing, vulture capitalist Martin Shkreli’s latest antics, AT&T’s huge move, and the similarities between stocks today and stocks in 2018 right before the 20% plunge.

Why Today's Stock Market Is So Risky
FEATURING: Cullen Roche
Dan’s weekly “rant” this episode my actually qualify as a rant – a 22-minute expose of a company about to go public that’s positioning itself as “the Facebook of fitness” even though it’s burning through cash at a rate like Netflix. Then again, there’s no denying the cult-like following this company has built – including a subscription service with a more than 95% renewal rate, which Dan acknowledges would be enough to get Stansberry management their own private island. “I’m just so flabbergasted by it all.” Dan then gets to the event some analysts are saying could add hundreds of billions of dollars in valuation to Amazon. “Of course this is gonna drive subscriptions, and people are gonna love it.”
