About

Recognized by Barron's as one of the "Top 100 Independent Financial Advisors in the US," James Stack has been a popular speaker at MoneyShow conferences for more than 30 years. Credited with having warned investors of the impending housing bubble in 2005 and imminent bear market in August 2007, he told Orlando MoneyShow attendees in 2009--just four weeks before the March 9th bottom--to "prepare for the buying opportunity of a lifetime." Mr. Stack's track record and safety-first approach to investing have been described by Forbes as "more or less impervious to declines."
