I recently joined our investment adviser Charles Sizemore, the editor of Macro Trend Investor, on the syndicated radio show Straight Talk Money.
Some of the topics we covered include:
- The recent jobs numbers that include another favorable report regarding jobless claims, and the headline unemployment rate of 6.2% that remains at the lowest levels since 2008 despite a tiny uptick from June to July.
- Russian sanctions that are meant to limit imports of consumer goods, and what it means particularly to luxury stocks and Western packaged goods companies.
- Reasons why the economy is, broadly, looking quite good.
- Why I like healthcare picks like HCP Inc. (HCP) and enterprise technology stocks including Oracle (ORCL) and IBM (IBM), and why Charles likes the valuations in Europe as well as high-yield REITs.
