Although the economic climate is still uncertain and the stock markets remain in bearish territory, the thousands of investors attending The World Money Show in Orlando, Florida, were surprisingly, but cautiously optimistic.

There, they heard from a range of advisors—from the decidedly bearish to those who believe in a second half recovery. Investors had an opportunity to hear—first-hand—strategies for bull, bear, and sideways markets—in more than 320 workshops and panels presented by some of the top financial pros and largest companies in the world.

In the exhibit hall, attendees tried out new trading platforms, gathered samples of leading investment newsletters, and chatted with financial experts from around the globe.

The opening ceremonies were standing-room-only, as keynote speakers offered their opinions of the new American president’s various stimulus efforts, as well as strategies for profiting from current and future market environments.

Keynote speakers included Jason Zweig, Wall Street Journal columnist; Barron’s president, Ed Finn, global guru John Rutledge, PhD, and Forbes Magazine chairman and CEO Steve Forbes. Their sessions inspired the audience and gave them specific advice for weathering the uncertain economy. Here, in Best of Show, you will find a brief summary of some of their remarks. Along with those interviews, don’t miss the link to our guests’ top stock recommendations.
