Podcast #13 - Let’s Concentrate For A Moment

  • Mar 5, 2020

In the immortal words of Lloyd Bridges, “Looks like I picked the wrong week to quit drinking.” Let’s put aside this week’s market turmoil and concentrate for a moment on... “concentration.” Market concentration, that is. Close your eyes and think back to those carefree days of mid-February.

Podcast #12 - Will The ZONE Show Some ZEST?

Podcast #11 - The Easy Fed and the “Other” Inequality

Podcast #10 - When "Risk" Is Not Risky

  • Feb 6, 2020

Extraordinarily low bond yields—often negative bond yields outside the U.S.—have significantly elevated investor anxieties, leaving the impression of facing a high-risk, low-return world.

Podcast #9 - A New Bull Market?

  • Jan 29, 2020

The S&P 500 did not suffer a bear market last year. At least not by the conventional definition of a 20% decline. However, it was razor close—dropping 19.8% from its highest- to lowest-daily close.

Podcast #7 - Ramsey: An Updated “Modern” Take on Valuations

  • Dec 31, 2019

An occasional critique of our valuation work is that we consider “too much” market history to form a judgment as to what constitutes “high” or “low.” This type of feedback declined during and after the financial crisis (when historic valuation thresholds were temporarily revisited), but it has become more pointed as the U.S. market has soared to new highs.

Leuthold Podcast #4 - Jim Paulsen: Does the expansion have unused capacity?

Leuthold Podcast #2 - How Long Will Apple Last?

  • Nov 26, 2019

OK, OK–maybe Apple isn’t so “Itsy Bitsy.” However, when viewed through the lens of our “4% Club” vignette, the stock has certainly followed the Sisyphean pattern of that popular nursery rhyme (and accompanying fingerplay, of course) over the last seven-plus years.

Leuthold Podcast #1 - Discounted Destiny?

  • Nov 20, 2019

The dividend discount model is a popular, conventional method of valuing a stock using the present value of its future dividend payments.
