Host and IAR Jeff Perry, JD, and CIO Brian Regan, CFA®, take the hour to discuss financial matters. They start by giving an economic and market update by commenting on GDP numbers, how the stock market is priced, the role earnings and interest rates has on stocks, employment rates, the Federal Reserve’s actions, and consumer sentiment.
Brian then reviews corporate earnings and shares his impressions on specific “mega cap” stocks. He discusses the differences between these “mega cap” companies and what he finds important when valuing a stock. Jeff and Brian go down the path of AI technology and how the rise in AI will affect some of these businesses.
Later, Jeff asks Brian about his recent article “Investors Beware! Celebrities and Companies Can Mislead You” published on TheStreet, covering ways investors can be mislead by celebrity endorsements.
