Dividend Growth: The "Stealth Growth" Strategy*

August 23, 2018, 9:45 am - 12:45 pm


Dividends are often associated with slow-growth companies and defensive-minded investing. Yet this overlooks a couple of key facts. Dividends and dividend growth have historically accounted for the lion's share of stock total returns. Moreover, companies that are rapidly growing their payouts can be found in some of the fastest-growing sectors of the economy.

This gives rise to a largely underutilized strategy: "Stealth growth" investing, which centers around buying quality stocks with a penchant for dividend growth. Come discover how (and why) it works, find out which sectors offer the most promising dividend growth, and scan the entire equity universe to uncover the best values. Courtesy of some true industry-leading experts, you'll take home specific stock ideas-including in tech and other growth sectors-each one set up to produce safe growth in ways that may have never even made your radar before!

Panel Presenters:
Managing Risk Around the Business Cycle Using Sector Rotation*

August 23, 2018, 10:00 am - 1:00 pm


Several years ago, Martin Pring wrote a book entitled The All-Season Investor. It described how the business cycle was nothing more or less than a set series of chronological sequences. These sequences form seasons. Just like the calendar year, there is a specific one for planting, one for growing, and another for harvesting. There is even a time when you should be doing nothing. In similar manner, business-cycle seasons lend themselves to specific asset classes and market sectors.

Martin Pring, publisher, Intermarket Review, will explain how you can recognize each stage in the cycle and give you the tools to achieve that. He will also answer the question of what sectors and asset classes have traditionally performed best in each of these financial seasons, as well as those to avoid.

Topics covered will include:

  • What the business cycle is, and how it determines the turning points of bonds, stocks, and commodities
  • How the cycle can be divided into six stages (seasons) providing the framework to use as a roadmap for optimum asset allocations
  • How to follow simple indicators to help you identify the prevailing stage of the cycle
  • How this approach can tell you what sectors (ETFs) to buy and when to sell them
  • How to determine whether inflation- or deflation-hedge stocks are the place to be
  • Basic technical tools that help identify primary trend reversals, including an extended discussion on long-term smoothed momentum
  • A full discussion of the principles of relative strength and how to apply them in a practical way
  • An outline of profitable intermarket strategies and how to apply them using ETFs and other vehicles
If you want to be on the right side of the market in any environment, you won't want to miss this in-depth session, taught by the man described by Barron's as the "technician's technician."

This Master Class Will Cover:

  • The three essential skills necessary to achieve the highest level of returns
  • The impact of overall market assessment on option selection
  • The use of options to protect portfolio gains

Town Hall Meeting with Legendary Investor Jim Rogers*

August 24, 2018, 11:00 am - 1:00 pm


The ability to pose your own personal investing-related questions to legendary investor Jim Rogers is unquestionably a valuable experience. Institutional investors would undoubtedly pay a fortune to pick his brains. Listening to other investors' questions, and hearing the answers they receive, can also trigger important realizations or additional questions of your own. In San Francisco we've planned a two-hour session that will allow you to do just exactly that.

No speech, no presentation; just an open Q&A forum, in which you get to ask one of the world's most renowned investors...anything you want. Find out what he would see if he were looking at your portfolio, how he's investing in the current market environment, and the perils and possibilities he sees ahead!

Jim Rogers first made a name for himself with his Quantum hedge fund, which he co-founded with another legendary investor, George Soros, in 1970. Over the next decade, Quantum gained 4,200%, while Standard & Poor's 500 Index climbed about 50%. A staunch advocated of boots-on-the-ground investing, his no-nonsense style and investing wisdom has made him a favorite with MoneyShow audiences over the years.

The first 100 people who purchase tickets will receive an autographed copy of Jim Rogers' book, Street Smarts: Adventures on the Road and in the Markets.

The Strategy That Has ALWAYS Worked*

August 25, 2018, 2:30 pm - 5:30 pm


This strategy beat the market in the 50s; trounced the market in the 60s; obliterated the market in the 70s; crushed the market in the 80s; pummeled the market in the 90s; smashed the market in the 2000s; and massively outperformed the market in the 2010s. Now...with all of this outperformance, you might think this is a high-risk strategy...and you would be wrong! This strategy is far lower risk than buy-and-hold. And, not one time, not in all the massive bear markets over the past 90 years, did this strategy have any major losses...not once.

Mike Turner, president, Turner Capital Investments, will show you how this strategy works and how to do it without spending a penny on high-end software or spending huge amounts on financial consultants. This Master Class is the reason you are attending this year's The MoneyShow San Francisco. Come be prepared to get your socks completely knocked off!

Mike has agreed to give anyone who attends his Masters Class that is not a current subscriber to his TurnerTrends Tools (the tools that he uses to monitor the market and select the best timing to buy/sell stocks and ETFs), a free, no obligation, 60-day subscription to the TurnerTrends Tools. You can only signup for this special offer in his Masters Class on Saturday.
