The Balance of Power and How to Capitalize on Political Change
Sunday, October 30, 2022, 9:00 am - 9:20 am
Focus: MARKETS
Join Eric Bolling, host of The Balance on NewsMax as he will discuss the approaching election and explore the massive financial opportunities political policy changes in DC will offer your portfolio. Most pollsters predict the US House of Representatives will flip to Republican, and many see the same with the US Senate. That will, by definition, be a log jam for policy in DC. He will also outline the ways your portfolios can take advantage of the new DC paradigm. With split control on DC, social spending will likely come to a halt. Mr. Bolling will then explore where the best money-making opportunities will emerge. He will also talk about risks your current holdings may incur when/if DC splits. Will it be in the health care sectors, the energy sectors, infrastructure, or crypto/digital currency? Don't be caught flat footed in your portfolio. Politics is the new driver of opportunity and risk in financial markets.

The Very Best Time to Be in the Market
Sunday, October 30, 2022, 9:25 am - 9:35 am
Focus: MARKETS
Some people say that the best time to be in the market is when it is in a bull trend like it was from 2009 to 2020. Most people say the riskiest time to be in the market is when it is in a bear cycle (2000, 2008, 2020, 2022). Mike Turner will show you how and why bear markets are wonderful times to make a lot of money in the market and how to find huge opportunities in either bull OR bear markets. Hint: It is not what you buy that matters as much as when you buy what you buy.

When Stupidity Succeeds
Sunday, October 30, 2022, 10:35 am - 10:55 am
Focus: ECONOMY
In 2000, When Genius Failed, the definitive account of LTCM's downfall, hit bookstands everywhere. The book detailed how a group of economic academicians (including two Nobel Prize winners), brought the US financial markets to the brink of oblivion. Flash forward 20 years and their fellow geniuses at the Federal Reserve are doing an excellent job repeating their mistakes--only on a much grander scale. A decade of ruthlessly repressive interest-rate policy has built up unprecedented imbalances in financial markets, leaving the US economy more vulnerable to any downside than it has ever been prior. Seemingly oblivious to this dismal reality (or fancying themselves smart enough to navigate around any problem) the Fed has undertaken the most aggressive tightening since Paul Volker. While they imagine they can engineer a soft landing, there's every reason to expect this downturn will give 2008 a run for the money. Stephanie Pomboy will discuss the implications of the Fed's latest policy blunder for the economy, markets, and the future of dollar hegemony.

We are witnessing a retail renaissance where retailers are increasingly recognizing the value of an omnichannel approach and the importance of having a physical presence. RTL's properties are located in strong suburban communities and are the brick-and-mortar locations that represent the last mile in retail, the places consumers continue to visit every day to receive goods and services. Investors looking for exposure to a necessity retail real estate portfolio, strong quarterly dividends, and growth potential should consider an investment in RTL. The knowledge you gain by attending this session will provide you with an appreciation for the value RTL can bring to your portfolio.

Too Much Pessimism or Not Enough?
Sunday, October 30, 2022, 11:10 am - 11:30 am
Focus: ECONOMY
The US economy seems to be heading into a recession, while inflation remains high. As of mid-2022, the S&P 500 had given back all its gains since the start of 2021. It's hard to be an optimist under the circumstances. Indeed, during June, one measure of consumer sentiment fell to the lowest on record starting in 1952. Also in June, Investors Intelligence Bull/Bear Ratio was the lowest it has been since the bottom of the bear market during the Great Financial Crisis. Might there be too much pessimism? The past year has been like living through the stagflationary 1970s, but on fast forward. However, a mild recession could help to bring inflation down sooner rather than later, setting the stage for recovery with gains to be had again in the bond and stock market. Dr. Ed Yardeni will provide a balanced discussion of what could go right and what could go wrong over the rest of this year, as well as the rest of this decade.

Inflation: The Disease That Biden, the Fed, and Congress Don't Know How to Fight
Monday, October 31, 2022, 8:35 am - 9:05 am
Focus: ECONOMY
