    Chris Mayer, author of and fan-favorite guest, is back. Last time Chris was on the podcast, he recommended Texas Pacific Land (TPL)... which is now up over 150% for members. [0:30] Today, he returns to the show to discuss recent winners, current market conditions, and small-cap opportunities. [2:25] As markets near all-time highs and inflation ramps up, listen to how Chris still finds great ideas.

[12:45] We discuss the changes we've seen in the markets during our careers… the importance of balancing growth with profits... and the rise of passive investing. [24:00] Chris also shares his favorite way to gain exposure to the exciting crypto space… [27:00]  And of course, he names a few stocks he likes right now.

    Fed Chair Jerome Powell finally admitted inflation isn't transitory… and his change of tune shook the markets. Daniel and I give our take on Powell's comments and the market selloff that followed.  The Fed's new stance marks the beginning of the end for the easy money policies we've seen since the start of the pandemic. We highlight several sectors and companies that will thrive… as well as ones that will suffer… as the Fed implements new policies to fend off inflation.  Rising inflation—not to mention the new COVID variant, Omicron—will mean more volatility in the coming weeks and months. Daniel shares a handful of “boring” stocks that investors should consider as we prepare for a shaky market.  We still don't have a lot of data around Omicron... Yet, governments and markets are already overreacting. And individual investors can use these overblown fears to their advantage.  Jim Cramer recently made some alarming comments about using the military to enforce vaccines. Prepare for a rant...

    So much for a relaxing Thanksgiving break… Markets sold off on news of the new COVID variant, Omicron, and volatility is soaring. I expect both the media and the government to overreact… But don't worry: In today's show, I lay out what you need to know—and do—in the coming weeks to prepare your portfolio. [0:30] While we still don't know much about Omicron, countries around the world are already restricting travel. I highlight the dangers of governments reacting prematurely… what we currently know about the new variant… and how the narrative has changed around vaccines. [7:25] I also explain why the market selloff we're seeing is illogical… and how the media and big business—especially Big Pharma—use fear to make profits. [13:00] But volatility leads to opportunities... Here's what investors should be focused on as we prepare for the Omicron circus. [21:30] Fed Chair Jerome Powell testified on Capitol Hill today regarding the country's economic outlook—including ongoing inflationary pressures. I break down the huge mistake the Fed continues to make… why inflation isn't priced into this market… and why we need to be prepared for it to get much worse before it gets better. [31:40] Finally, I explain why Genia Turanova's strategy is the perfect way to hedge today's market risks—and why I personally follow it with my own money. [39:15] Enjoyed this episode?

    Today we welcome back one of our most downloaded—and controversial—guests of all time... Kristin Tate, author of The Liberal Invasion of Red State America, is back on the podcast to discuss public policy, culture, and cryptos. [1:35] During the COVID lockdowns, as businesses shifted to remote work, we saw a huge migration of people out of big cities and into more suburban and rural parts of the country. But Kristin says the shift had been taking place long before COVID forced the push forward. She explains why big cities will never return to the major corporate and cultural hubs they once were. [2:38] For instance, New York City's newly elected Mayor Eric Adams has a mission: convince former residents to return to the Big Apple. Kristin highlights why he's unlikely to succeed. [6:00] You've undoubtedly heard of the Kyle Rittenhouse trial… It's just another example of how everything is politicized today—drawing a hard line between conservatives and liberals. We discuss how moderates are getting sick of the narrative… [12:15] If you're traveling for the holidays, Kristin lays out a few issues that could wreak havoc on your plans... [16:35] And as we face labor shortages—especially in certain blue-collar industries—she reveals the cultural issues behind the problem. [21:00] Next, Kristin gives her thoughts on who will win big during next November's midterm elections… and how she expects politicians to double-down with their respective voter bases. [23:40] Turning to crypto, Kristin shares her own holdings… and why she's bullish on the asset class in the short term, but bearish over the much longer term... [26:30] Finally, Kristin gives us a glimpse into her next book… and the role she's playing in Texas' upcoming political race. [32:10] Enjoyed this episode?

    With a short holiday week, we're changing up the format a bit… so no monologue today. But I have an exciting—and controversial—interview for you tomorrow (hint: It's one of our most downloaded guests of all time). [0:35] I love this time of year… It means I get to look forward to the annual Consumer Electronics Show (CES), held in Las Vegas in January. Here's how I'm preparing… [3:05] Following another great quarter from Dick's Sporting Goods, Daniel and I debate whether now is a good time to buy the stock. [3:55] Best Buy also reported solid earnings… yet it's trading over 10% lower. I share why, despite strong results, many retailers are in a tough position compared to this time last year. [6:35] Keeping with retail, Daniel explains why he's more bullish than ever on Amazon, Target, and Walmart… and why last week's selloff in the latter two names isn't anything to worry about. [12:20] Markets are near all-time highs and many growth companies are sporting huge valuations (electric truck maker Rivian comes to mind)... But when it comes to growth stocks, you can't just focus on valuation—I learned this lesson myself with Netflix and Tesla. [20:40] Big news came out of the oil sector this week: The U.S. announced it would be releasing 50 million barrels of oil from its strategic petroleum reserves (SPR) to help fight higher prices. Prepare for a rant: The Biden Administration is making a huge mistake in terms of national security… and it could lead to the destruction of the U.S. economy. [26:35] That said, as we know… there's a way to profit in any market. And Daniel shares two names set to benefit on the news. [34:50] And finally, if you haven't heard yet, Luke Downey's Big Money Trader has officially launched. Here's how Luke's options strategy can help you make the most of the market's sudden moves.

    Today's guest is someone you may have talked to personally: my sister, Christine Curzio. She's head of human resources and customer service here at Curzio Research (among the many other hats she wears). Customers don't typically call when things are going great. Most often, they call when there's a fire to put out. Christine shares some of the wildest issues we've faced at Curzio... and how we implement our mission of always doing right by you, the customer. [1:25] Now, customer service isn't all negative stories... Christine highlights some great feedback she's received from folks looking out for us. [5:28] But if you're thinking, “the customer is always right,” well… think again. We explain why you've got to protect your brand and employees… and even be willing to part ways with customers under certain circumstances. [7:28] We reminisce about the old days working with our late father... and break down the major industry changes we've seen over the years—like the advent of security tokens. And Christine shares a funny story involving our dad competing against a stock-picking monkey. [10:05] We also share some amazing gifts we've received from customers… [17:40] Finally, Christine lays out some key “backend” factors and growing pains that every business owner should be aware of… and how to adapt.

If you haven't heard the latest drama surrounding Tesla CEO Elon Musk's Twitter account, he and Senator Bernie Sanders exchanged jabs this week over the two things humans can't escape: death and taxes. Daniel and I share a laugh over the spat. [1:06] The end of earnings season means the release of 13Fs... where the largest money managers disclose what they bought and sold during the previous quarter. As Peloton shares tumbled this quarter, Viking Global—a popular hedge fund—scooped up millions of shares… We speculate whether it's already unloaded shares for a loss. [4:20] 13Fs can be a great place to find new ideas… Daniel highlights a couple of new names he discovered that he's now digging into… And I point out what caught my attention in big tech. [11:18] The price of bitcoin dropped 10% overnight... and other cryptos are following suit. Here's the best way for investors to handle the volatility… (It's how we manage our Crypto Intelligence portfolio, which currently holds 5 quadruple-digit winners.)
