Rank #1: One on one with investing legend Ken Fisher (Ep. 679)

Podcast cover
Read more
Today, I’m joined by first time guest Ken Fisher. Ken is founder, executive chairman, and co-chief investment officer at [15:43]. He’s also a prize-winning researcher and bestselling author.  Ken breaks down his process for finding the best investing ideas… and why he believes this bull market will continue higher.  In my educational segment, I share a fantastic example of why boots-on-the-ground research is critical [51:17]. One company is down over 40% in the last few months… But thanks to my field work, I already warned you about it. Now management is making awful excuses regarding its recent earnings miss…  And be sure to listen to my rant—which was triggered by dinner plates, of all things. ---------------------- Editor’s note: Want first access to Frank’s boots-on-the-ground intel?

Rank #2: Ep. 524: Frankly Speaking: Industry on Fire - Video Games

Podcast cover
Read more
Welcome back to another episode of Frankly Speaking. If you’re interested in buying some video game stocks but don’t understand the differences between the U.S-based big three; Activision Blizzard (ATVI), Electronic Arts (EA), and Take-Two Interactive (TTWO)... Today’s show is right up your alley. In comparison to movies, TV studios, and other corners of the entertainment industry, no other sector has seen this much success in recent quarters. In fact, video game stocks have been in an all-out frenzy...  Revenues are growing… share prices are reaching new all-time highs almost every week… and the combined market-cap of these companies now reach over $80 billion. Over the last two years alone, shares of Take-Two have nearly tripled, Activision has more than doubled, and EA is up over 80%.  Unlike, let’s say, just five years ago… Video game companies no longer have to wait till Christmas time to make their profits. Those days are over. Today, digital revenues now come from an array of sources like in-game advertising, downloadable map-packs, full-game downloads, subscriptions… along with the consumer's ability to purchase virtual cars, clothes, and guns with real dollars - pushing company valuations even higher. Let’s not forget to mention their impact on the world of mobile gaming... Now although I wouldn’t be going all-in at these levels, on today’s show, I jump into the nitty-gritty. And give away my favorite bet out of the three. Switching gears, I turn my focus to a sector that is showing no signs of slowing down. It’s sort of like the video game industry with only more potential. Like four times the potential.  I’m calling out what some investors in this sector are failing to do: Looking at the bottom-line numbers and fundamentals… NOT only the stock price. (Yes, some are expensive) Investing in future growth catalysts… NOT only in momentum (cough, cough, Nvidia). The truth is, there are still several companies out there climbing at only 15x forward earnings… in a sector that’s still very much in its infancy. Special thanks to George, Sheryl, and Jerry for all the questions. Keep them coming at Frank@CurzioResearch.com Good Investing, Frank Curzio

Rank #5: Ep. 521: Take Your Profits on This Tech Darling

Podcast cover
Read more
Welcome back to another episode of Wall Street Unplugged.   This week I’m again joined by the one and only market veteran – Richard Suttmeier.   Rich has been analyzing stocks for over 40 years, is a weekly contributor for Forbes and TheStreet.com, and is the founder and CEO of Global Market Consultants.   As my frequent listeners know, Rich is probably the biggest permabear I invite on the show.   Our opinions almost always contradict...   Yet for this reason, he is an asset for all my investment theses… Why?   Rich has a knack for uncovering data no else seems to mention. He calls it "the balance sheet of the U.S. economy," otherwise known as the FDIC Banking Profile.   And although he uses this overlooked data to contest nearly everything I put on the table...  It always helps to hear the otherside.   If you own a stock, or a have any interest in a certain sector... you don't want to talk to the hundreds of people that love it. Instead, you want to hear from that one guy who hates it.   And Rich is that guy.   On today's show he brings the heat - focusing on the downside risks of oil, semiconductors, utilities, housing markets, and his favorite, the financial industry.   If you have bets on any of these sectors, let Rich challenge your perspective. It won't hurt.   Then, for today's Educational Segment [43:13], I’m breaking down a stock that the whole world’s in love with right now.   It’s a global tech “darling” and is part of a select group of stocks that essentially drives the entire market, also known as FANG.   But trading at 23 times earnings, after coming off four straight quarters of positive earnings estimates, I make the case for why it’s time to cash in… and take profits any off the table. Recent momentum has carried on just too far.   Good Investing,   Frank Curzio

Podcast cover

Who saw this coming? Welcome back to another episode of Wall Street Unplugged. As all of you know, the one and only Donald Trump will become our next President. Our economic environment has radically changed overnight - and I'm here to break-down what this means for every sector going forward. I'll try my best to avoid anymore political discussion. Instead, on today's segment, we'll be talking about whats important - your portfolio. My guest this week is Nick Hodge - founder and President of the Outsider Club, and investment director of Early Advantage. One thing is clear... the resource bear market is coming to a close. And as Nick explains, opportunities are arising "across-the-board." Nick shares with us his strategy of buying some of the highest-yielding resources at dirt cheap prices. To end the episode, Nick gives listeners his favorite stock ideas. This includes four buy-recommendations every resource stock investor needs to be aware of.

Rank #9: Ep. 565: Cactus Schroeder: Where Oil Prices Are Heading

Podcast cover
Read more
This week I sit down with legendary Texas wildcatter and CEO of Chisholm Exploration, Cactus Schroeder. Cactus is one of the smartest men you’ll find in the oil business. For 40 years, he's drilled around the most prominent basins of North America. And he's consulted on or invested in over 1,000 drilling projects. Cactus was featured on Discovery Channel’s Wildcatters – a television series that followed three people searching for oil and gas in areas other than oil fields. He's also credited with finding one of the largest oil-producing wells in the Eagle Ford – which he later sold to Norway’s Statoil for north of $1 billion. If you own any oil stocks, or thinking of jumping back into oil any plays, be sure to tune into this interview first... Cactus tells us where he thinks oil prices are heading... and the risks to consider today when placing your bets in this space. More importantly, he updates listeners on the breakeven prices needed to drill in the Permian, the Bakken, and the Eagle Ford… and why these “strike zone” numbers are vital to oil producers and investors going forward. Good Investing, Frank Curzio P.S. On this week’s Educational Segment we’ll discuss a trade Marin Katusa recommended last week. If you took action, you’d be up 60% in just four trading sessions. It's another example why sometimes – especially during this volatile earnings season – you just have to stick to your guns.

Rank #10: Ep. 539: Sprott's Natural Resource Symposium: The good news... and the bad

Podcast cover
Read more
Welcome back to another episode of Wall Street Unplugged!   I just returned home from the 2017 Sprott Natural Resource Symposium in Vancouver… my go-to conference each year.   It’s where the most successful junior mining investors and executives gather from around the globe… where I've learned about companies like McEwen Mining, Sandstorm Gold, and Northern Dynasty... and where I get to sit in exclusive closed-door sessions with company insiders.   On this week's show, I'm honored to re-introduce the Executive Chairman of, by far, the most promising company of this year’s Symposium.   His name is Ivan Bebek.   His company is about to embark on one of the largest drilling programs in the junior resource space today. And if they hit… investors could see a 50%-plus pop in shares almost immediately.   It’s the type of risk/reward setup that’s too favorable to ignore.   That’s the good news…   Some of what I witnessed in Vancouver was cringeworthy… the same pump and dump scams I’ve seen too many times.   It reminded me why the natural resource industry can be so dangerous for investors. So on this week's Educational Segment, I’ll remind you of the key things to watch out for.   Good Investing, Frank Curzio

Rank #14: The 10-Year Treasury Just Broke 3%... Here’s Why You Should Use This Non-Event as a Buying Opportunity (EP.615)

Podcast cover
Read more
Welcome back to Wall Street Unplugged. Today, everyone is talking about the 10-year Treasury yield—namely, how it just broke 3% for the first time in years. Here’s the truth: this isn’t a big deal—no matter what the media say. This number is still well below historical norms… However, it does present us with a buying opportunity… which I’ll tell you about in today’s show. But before I get to that, I welcome as my guest this week Danielle DiMartino Booth. Danielle is a former adviser at the Federal Reserve Bank of Dallas and editor of the Money Strong newsletter. Today, she breaks down the impact higher yields will have on individual investors… the fundamental landscape of today’s housing market… and why millennials will be a huge drag on the economy much quicker than most economists are forecasting. I also give you a play-by-play of how I find my best stock ideas. This simple strategy will help you invest in the best stocks before Wall Street finds out about them… and before they’re mentioned in the media.

Rank #16: Ep. 531: John Petrides: The Next Retail Takeover

Podcast cover
Read more
Welcome to another episode of Wall Street Unplugged. He's back… Managing Director at Point View Wealth Management and Wall Street Unplugged all-time favorite, John Petrides, joins the show once again. And apart from our quarterly routine, jumping from one sector to another, today we're turning all of our focus on one. Just last week, a surprisingly big acquisition took place in the retail sector; Private equity firm Sycamore bought out Staples for $10.25 per share… in a deal valued close to $7 billion. Shares of Staples, which have been on a steady decline for the past decade, finally found some life - after shares surged more than 8% in late session trading. All of which, has got John thinking... Helped along by today’s low interest rate environment, on top of a severely depressed, cheap, and hated retail sector… John’s prediction is that we’re still in the early innings of these takeover deals. On today’s show, we each give away our best guesses at which retailer is next. Including one big-box that just might be Jeff Bezos’s next lunch. You heard it here first. Good Investing, Frank Curzio

Rank #17: The most important lesson in investing (Ep. 649)

Podcast cover
Read more
Volatility can be hard to stomach. Right now, we’re seeing 300 point moves in the Dow Jones index on daily basis… and some of the greatest companies in the world are down more than 30% from their highs.    During volatile markets, it’s vital to have tools in place to lower your overall risk. After all, the last thing you want is to take a 70% loss on any position. And by limiting your losses, you have some dry powder to buy incredible names at significant discounts. In this special podcast, I break down one of the most important lessons in investing—risk management. Few people know more about this topic than Dr. Richard Smith, founder and CEO of TradeSmith. On today’s show, Dr. Smith, who has a PhD in math and systems science, breaks down his favorite risk management techniques… and his strategy to take emotions out of investing. This interview is a must-listen. Then in my educational segment (55:00), I do the unimaginable... I break down one of my biggest losers of the year. We’ll have losing investments from time to time… but today I show you how I was able to avoid a catastrophic loss for investors by using this one simple risk management technique.   It’s a great lesson on how to become a better investor. And I’m sure you’ll enjoy listening to me eat some humble pie!  Wishing you all a very happy holiday!

Amir Adnani, Founder and Chairman of Brazil Resources, talks about the recent 300% surge in his stock.  He breaks down what's next for the company and how he plans to more than double the company's gold deposits - which now stand at over 11 million ounces.    Amir also discusses Brazil Resources' huge uranium asset.  This asset - which surrounds Areva's super high-grade Maybelle River deposit - could be valued at more than $50 million, or 40% of the market-cap of the company.  Yet, the "Street" is assigning no value to this large high-grade deposit.  Finally, Amir talks about the state of the gold markets.  He sees prices going higher over the mid to longer term.  If he's right, this should be great news for Brazil Resources which has become one of the premier standouts in the huge junior resource sector.
