On this week’s episode Dan discusses several news stories popping up of brand new retail investors making incredibly risky bets gambling on stocks like Hertz and J.C. Penney…. Could we be nearing the top again?

Plus, Dan discusses some extremely controversial steps being taken in Minneapolis, after their City Council announced plans to disband the police department. Could is actually succeed or is it destined for disaster?

Then, Dan bring special guest, Dr. Jeff Ross, onto the podcast for this week’s interview. Jeff is the Founder and Managing Director at Vailshire Capital Management, an investment advisory service, and Vailshire Partners, a hedge fund that is beating the market this year by a wide margin.

 

During their conversation, Jeff and Dan talk about the protests and riots across the country, including the shifting perceptions on the black lives matter movement. Jeff also shares what he thinks will be the best investment of the next decade and one of his favorite stocks.

Finally, Dan gets a little heated answering questions from the mailbag… Dan, what’s with your opinion? Just give me the facts… Is there actually rioting in the streets? How can a few thousand millennials on Robinhood cause a Melt Up? What happens if a law is passed and Chinese companies are de-listed from US exchanges? And why is the bond market considered a leading economic indicator?

Dan answers these questions and more here on this week’s episode.
