Episode 84: The Berkshire Hathaway of Small Businesses

On a week where markets roared back, the most expensive tuna ever was sold for $3.1 million, and the government shutdown officially became the third longest in history – and still with no end in sight – Dan Ferris number crunches some more historic milestones. Because last week was Apple’s turn to suffer, Amazon is now the world’s largest company. Dan talks about how, once those companies both hit trillion-dollar valuations, something told him he was wrong. And while he got his readers...


Episode 83: The Costliest Moment for Investors in History

After a brutal December, Dan Ferris rings in the New Year and addresses the question every investor is wondering: Where will the stock market go in 2019? The best way to predict the future, he says, is to understand the present – and that starts with what he calls “the most expensive moment in the history of the stock market” which we saw just last fall. It’s been costlier for investors than any equivalent moment in the collapse or the 2008 crisis – and it’s the best indicator...


Episode 82: Worst December for Stocks Since Great Depression: What's Next"

On the one-year anniversary of the peak value in Bitcoin, Buck, Dan Ferris, and Stansberry’s top retirement expert Dr. David Eifrig break down the grim-seeming news facing investors this month, from the “worst December for markets since the Great Depression” all the way to oil’s slide and the sentencing of President Trump’s former top lawyer Michael Cohen. Having worked at Goldman Sachs for almost a decade, Doc gives his take on the bank’s 1MDB scandal, and why he has no doubt the bank...


Episode 81: Another Reason to Set Aside Some Cash

In a week of the debut of Elon Musk’s underground tunnel, a #MeToo outcry against “Baby, It’s Cold Outside,” and a British currency crash in the wake of a delayed Brexit vote in Parliament, there’s a lot for Dan Ferris and Buck to unpack this week. Most significant for investors – and surely on a lot of minds – is JPMorgan’s warning that a 70% likelihood of a recession is looming. Dan explains why the projection is utterly irresponsible – and why, instead of predicting recession, value...


Episode 80: A 10-Year Slump for Equities?

In the wake of Tuesday’s market carnage, with almost all of the major indices losing 3% of their value, Dan sees a rough slog ahead for almost all U.S. stocks. By any reasonable metric, stocks are a bad deal – but a few diamonds exist in the rough. Of course, there are not just bad deals to be found, but also outright land mines for investors, as is the case with GE, whose rotten pension dilemma Dan breaks down this week for listeners. Later on, Dan and Buck are joined by Dr. David (Doc)...


Episode 79: Tesla Still a Train Wreck After Near-Death Experience

In a week that included a one-day 257-point surge for the Dow, record Black Friday spending, and a legal challenge to Apple’s “monopoly” continuing its march to the Supreme Court, Buck once again brings on Extreme Value editor Dan Ferris to make sense of things. In the wake of Elon Musk’s own admission that Tesla “almost died this year,” Dan breaks down the latest numbers: as it produces 1,000 Model 3 sedans a week in Q3 and keeps bleeding cash, his position on Tesla “has never...


Episode 78: Why This Week Was FAANG’s Turn to Suffer

As the selloff continues, a lot of familiar names are making history in the worst kind of way. Facebook is on track to post its longest losing streak ever, with its third straight month in the red. And while a recent New York Times report savaging its top management won’t help any, Dan Ferris notes that value investors still like the company – if they’re willing to wait 2-5 years. But Facebook is far from the only big name on the run. Bitcoin’s latest crash has brought it 9% below the...


Episode 77: Expert Declares: A Paradise for Value Investors

This week’s continued market selloff had some high-profile casualties – and brings to mind a great Warren Buffett quote that, “Only when the tide goes out do you discover who was swimming naked.” One of the biggest casualties was beleaguered GE stock, down another 15% from just last week. Buck shares an amazing finding with Extreme Value editor Dan Ferris – turns out, if you’d bought GE in 1994 and held on, your shares would be worth the same amount of money today. Dan thinks the worst may...


Episode 76: A Really Good Time to Be a Value Investor

As the dust from one of America’s uglier midterm battles settles, Buck makes sense of the new political order. On the one hand – Democrats won the House, and with it the ability to kill all legislation, investigate the President and subpoena his aides and – most explosively – demand his tax returns. On the other side, Republicans expanded their majority in the U.S. Senate, giving President Trump the ability to nominate scores of lifetime conservative judges – meaning his vision for...


Episode 75: What The Midterms Mean for Your Money

With markets continuing their whipsaw movements, it’s hard to know where the dice will fall. But with the major indices up almost 2% yesterday, there are a lot of tea leaves to go over – and a lot of bargains still to be had. In a choppy week for markets, Extreme Value editor Dan Ferris joins us again to give his take on what this signals for stocks – and in a week where all sorts of quality companies are trading at discounts, where the biggest opportunities can be found. He’s joined...


Episode 74: The Surprising Survivors of This Week’s Market Carnage

Everyone’s rattled. It’s one thing to understand the logical argument for Dr. Steve Sjuggerud’s “Melt Up” thesis – but that doesn’t mean weeks like this, while historically normal, are fun to watch. With Friday morning bringing on another down day as tech reported weak earnings, plenty of brand names are trading significantly lower than they were Monday morning. The way our analysts see it, that means a lot of bargains are out there for investors who see them for what they are. In a...


Episode 73: Why “Fauxcahontas” Isn’t Ready for Prime Time

Buck Sexton is riding solo in this 73 episode of Stansberry Investor Hour, where he dives right into the latest political controversy – Elizabeth Warren’s DNA test revealing herself to be anywhere from 1/64 to 1/1,024 Native American. Besides the silliness of the “Fauxcohontas” story, it’s one of the most remarkable acts of political selfishness of our times, coming as it does 21 days before the midterm elections and starting a conversation Democrats don’t want to be having. On the other...


Episode 72: Bull Market Not Over (Here’s How We Know)

We’re joined for this 72 episode of Stansberry Investor Hour by Dr. Steve Sjuggerud and his lead analyst, Brett Eversole. Fresh from the Stansberry investor summit in Las Vegas last week, they’re here to give us their take on the stock market’s crazy ride this week – as well as some details on Stansberry’s big “Meltinar” Event coming October 24. In Porter’s own words, “I’ve never seen Steve blow a major market call – wish I could say the same of me!” So, we think you’ll want to hear...


Episode 71: The Ugliest Political Fight of Your Lifetime

We’re here in Las Vegas for this 71st episode of Stansberry Investor Hour, and in a week where Porter and a handful of other Stansberry gurus are meeting with subscribers head-on, Porter teases the Stansberry Research Report Card, where we cut to the chase on how helpful our advice and recommendations actually were for making our readers some money. As Porter tells it, “Even if you have an average return of 25%, but 605 of your recs lost money – I don’t think that’s a great performance....


Episode 70: Trump Responds to Porter’s Question

Our co-host Buck Sexton is back from his 45-minute interview in the Oval Office with President Trump – and as could be expected, it came with a bombshell throwaway comment. It’s not President Trump’s opinion of “the single greatest mistake in America’s history” or even his response to Porter’s question over whether or not some Cabinet members are really conspiring to use the 25 Amendment to overthrow him. Instead, it has to do with his own Attorney General – who if anything has been...


Episode 69: The $2 Trillion Gene-Editing Market Still in Its Infancy

We’ve had a lot of exciting guests on the Stansberry Investor Hour show – but for the first time, the moment to watch might be one after we finished recording. That’s because, immediately after recording this episode, Buck made right for D.C. for an interview with none other than President Trump himself – and gave Porter the opportunity to pass along one question he’d like for POTUS to answer. Wait until you hear what Porter eventually decided to ask. There’s certainly a lot of material to...


Episode 68: The Dawn of Machine Learning

We have two guests with a track record that’s, in Porter’s words, “ridiculous” this week – Venture Technology’s Dave Lashmet and Christian Olsen, whose research service has uncovered 14 doubles since its launch. Dave and Christian both have deep backgrounds in biology and biotech – and they’re not just focused on promising small-caps with pipelines that position them for rocket returns. In fact, in this episode they crown some winners among the big pharma giants in immune oncology, cardiac...


Episode 67: What’s Next After Nike’s $3.75 Billion Punishment

Writer and magician Penn Jillette joins Stansberry Investor Hour today. Someone Porter’s always been dying to talk to, he’s also worked with Buck’s former boss Glenn Beck – and become a libertarian thinker whose brain Porter wants to pick along the way. There’s also news concerning another one-time Stansberry Investor Hour guest – Julian Assange, who is facing his last days of freedom in Ecuador’s London Embassy before falling into the waiting hands of British authorities. Porter and Buck...


Episode 66: “Dean of High-Yield Debt” Predicts: This Is When the Credit Cycle Hits

We have a bona fide Wall Street legend on the podcast today – Marty Fridson, referred to as the “Dean of High Yield” because of his unique knowledge of toxic loans to unworthy companies and their inevitable consequences as a Sword of Damocles on the broader markets. Marty knows where the bodies are buried – and when the day of reckoning arrives, Porter trusts him to know which bonds will blow up and which ones will survive. That’s vital for anyone looking to prepare for the credit...


Episode 65: The Greatest Cash Flow Machine In the History of Capitalism

It’s the 10-year anniversary of this extraordinary bull market, officially – except not really, as Porter explains to Buck in this week’s podcast episode. Even so – there’s no question a lot of people are making money. But with the S&P 500 having more than tripled since March 2009 lows… who’s been smartest (not LUCKIEST as would be the case with cryptos)? Porter points to believers of the FAANG stocks – and one of them in particular. Later on, they’re joined by Wesley Gray, a former Marine...
