Avoid Catastrophe: Why Market Meltdown Predictions are Wrong
FEATURING: Richard Smith
With the market’s whipsaw turnaround from December continuing through this week, the question of where the market is headed for the next 10 months of 2019 is dominating most financial discussions. Everyone has an opinion – and Dan Ferris is ready to reveal why those opinions are often catastrophically wrong. From billionaire Paul Tudor Jones predicting markets could go “crazy” on the upside at the ed of 2018 after the midterm elections, to surveys of 22 of America’s most powerful banks and brokerages being wrong on market movements by an astonishing 14.6% each year.

The Concern That Has Billionaires Warning of a Recession
FEATURING: Grant Williams
A handful of billionaires have renewed their warnings of a global recession – with one legendary commodities trader even predicting something worse than the Great Depression. In this week where 20 tons of gold have mysteriously disappeared from Venezuela’s vaults, Tesla has another $920 million in debt payments due, and a value investor just dived into an iconic fast food business, Dan Ferris makes sense of it all.

How to Invest for a Recession
FEATURING: Chris Irons
Dan Ferris launches into this week’s episode dissecting the warning from billionaire investor Ray Dalio, who’s saying there’s significant risk of a recession in 2020 – not just in the U.S., but a global slowdown. While no one can tell the future, there is one grim statistic on Dan’s mind that doesn’t dispute this claim. He then introduces this week’s podcast guest, Christopher Irons.

The Berkshire Hathaway of Small Businesses
FEATURING: Shane Parrish
On a week where markets roared back, the most expensive tuna ever was sold for $3.1 million, and the government shutdown officially became the third longest in history – and still with no end in sight – Dan Ferris number crunches some more historic milestones. Because last week was Apple’s turn to suffer, Amazon is now the world’s largest company. Dan talks about how, once those companies both hit trillion-dollar valuations, something told him he was wrong. And while he got his readers out of Apple before the main meltdown, “I wish I had followed my gut.”

The Costliest Moment for Investors in History
FEATURING: Mark Spiegel
After a brutal December, Dan Ferris rings in the New Year and addresses the question every investor is wondering: Where will the stock market go in 2019? The best way to predict the future, he says, is to understand the present – and that starts with what he calls “the most expensive moment in the history of the stock market” which we saw just last fall.

Worst December for Stocks Since Great Depression: What's Next
FEATURING: Dr. David Eifrig and Steve Koomar
On the one-year anniversary of the peak value in Bitcoin, Buck, Dan Ferris, and Stansberry’s top retirement expert Dr. David Eifrig break down the grim-seeming news facing investors this month, from the “worst December for markets since the Great Depression” all the way to oil’s slide and the sentencing of President Trump’s former top lawyer Michael Cohen. Having worked at Goldman Sachs for almost a decade, Doc gives his take on the bank’s 1MDB scandal, and why he has no doubt the bank knew what was going on in real time. Dan and Buck discuss Trump’s pressure on the Fed to table its rate hikes, and Doc explains why he doesn’t pay much attention to the Fed these days.

Another Reason to Set Aside Some Cash
FEATURING: Adam Schwartz
In a week of the debut of Elon Musk’s underground tunnel, a #MeToo outcry against “Baby, It’s Cold Outside,” and a British currency crash in the wake of a delayed Brexit vote in Parliament, there’s a lot for Dan Ferris and Buck to unpack this week. Most significant for investors – and surely on a lot of minds – is JPMorgan’s warning that a 70% likelihood of a recession is looming. Dan explains why the projection is utterly irresponsible – and why, instead of predicting recession, value investors can prepare for one regardless.

A 10-Year Slump for Equities?
FEATURING: Dr. David Eifrig
In the wake of Tuesday’s market carnage, with almost all of the major indices losing 3% of their value, Dan sees a rough slog ahead for almost all U.S. stocks. By any reasonable metric, stocks are a bad deal – but a few diamonds exist in the rough. Of course, there are not just bad deals to be found, but also outright land mines for investors, as is the case with GE, whose rotten pension dilemma Dan breaks down this week for listeners. Later on, Dan and Buck are joined by Dr. David (Doc) Eifrig and Stansberry Senior Analyst Matt Weinschenk. Doc has a storied past working for years trading derivatives at Goldman Sachs before leaving Wall Street to become an eye doctor before finally joining Stansberry in 2008. Matt has spent over a decade as an investment analyst and six of those have been here with Doc.

Tesla Still a Train Wreck After Near-Death Experience
FEATURING: Mattie Duppler
In a week that included a one-day 257-point surge for the Dow, record Black Friday spending, and a legal challenge to Apple’s “monopoly” continuing its march to the Supreme Court, Buck once again brings on Extreme Value editor Dan Ferris to make sense of things. In the wake of Elon Musk’s own admission that Tesla “almost died this year,” Dan breaks down the latest numbers: as it produces 1,000 Model 3 sedans a week in Q3 and keeps bleeding cash, his position on Tesla “has never changed.”

Why This Week Was FAANG’s Turn to Suffer
FEATURING: Whitney Tilson
As the selloff continues, a lot of familiar names are making history in the worst kind of way. Facebook is on track to post its longest losing streak ever, with its third straight month in the red. And while a recent New York Times report savaging its top management won’t help any, Dan Ferris notes that value investors still like the company – if they’re willing to wait 2-5 years. But Facebook is far from the only big name on the run.

Expert Declares: A Paradise for Value Investors
FEATURING: Rahul Saraogi
This week’s continued market selloff had some high-profile casualties – and brings to mind a great Warren Buffett quote that, “Only when the tide goes out do you discover who was swimming naked.” One of the biggest casualties was beleaguered GE stock, down another 15% from just last week. Buck shares an amazing finding with Extreme Value editor Dan Ferris – turns out, if you’d bought GE in 1994 and held on, your shares would be worth the same amount of money today. Dan thinks the worst may be yet to come. In fact, he says the stock has a chance of going to zero. “I’ve never said that before.”

A Really Good Time to Be a Value Investor
FEATURING: Christopher Cole
Meanwhile, with markets reacting to a split decision that invites a new era of gridlock, Dan Ferris gives the lay of the value investing land, starting with the moves of the greatest value investor of all time. “You can’t be a value investor and not talk about what Warren Buffett is doing.” Dan’s got a theory of why Warren Buffett has held on to a cash hoard of over $100 billion for five quarters now, and what his relatively meager $1 billion buyback of Berkshire stock really signals. They’re joined by this week’s special guest, Chris Cole.

What The Midterms Mean for Your Money
FEATURING: Vitaliy Katsenelson
With markets continuing their whipsaw movements, it’s hard to know where the dice will fall. But with the major indices up almost 2% yesterday, there are a lot of tea leaves to go over – and a lot of bargains still to be had. In a choppy week for markets, Extreme Value editor Dan Ferris joins us again to give his take on what this signals for stocks – and in a week where all sorts of quality companies are trading at discounts, where the biggest opportunities can be found.

The Surprising Survivors of This Week’s Market Carnage
FEATURING: Dan Ferris
Everyone’s rattled. It’s one thing to understand the logical argument for Dr. Steve Sjuggerud’s “Melt Up” thesis – but that doesn’t mean weeks like this, while historically normal, are fun to watch. With Friday morning bringing on another down day as tech reported weak earnings, plenty of brand names are trading significantly lower than they were Monday morning.
