Thousands of investors recently descended upon the nation's capital for the recent Money Show. They heard market forecasts from the country's leading investment experts, including Steve Forbes, Knight Kiplinger and Larry Kudlow. They wandered the exhibit hall, meeting and greeting more than 50 of their favorite advisors and editors, then attended more than 150 workshops, panel discussions and investing intensives, where they discovered scores of new investing ideas. Read on for just a sampling of the BEST of SHOW offerings…
The show had something for everyone: Long-term investors, short-term traders, and folks interested in options, money management, or just plain old investment education.
Investors interested in diversifying globally had their pick of sessions with a contingent of the world's best international investors, including Nicholas Vardy, Robert Hsu, Jeffrey Everett and Neil George.
Folks looking for topical and cutting-edge investments were well-rewarded with a panel from the gurus of ChangeWave, an energy workshop with Elliott Gue and a 4-hour intensive on Making Money in this Environment with Joe Battipaglia, Frank Cappiello, Charles Payne, Jon Markman and Mark Hulbert.
Fixed investments took center stage as income expert Richard Lehmann showed attendees that income doesn't have to be dull and boring.
Those who came for the best stock picks - in the US and around the globe - found satisfaction in the Top Ten Home Run Stocks panel, featuring Doug Fabian, Mark Skousen and Nicholas Vardy. And ETF investors weren't disappointed with Jim Farrish's workshop, Creating a Disciplined Strategy with Sectors and ETF's.
Capping off a great three days, the experts at Standard & Poor's wrapped up the show with their eagerly awaited investment outlook for the coming year.
Our intent here is to give you just a small sampling of the wide variety of education, investing ideas and market forecasts that attendees found at the Money Show Washington, DC. Money Show. We hope you enjoy (and prosper) from these recommendations, and look forward to seeing you in person at one of our upcoming events.
