Winning the Battle for Investment Success
“Is it TIME to BUY or head for COVER?”
Saturday Oct 19th and Sunday Morning (Optional Q&A)
We are convening on October 19th, at the Westin Hotel at LAX Airport in Los Angeles.
This day is the anniversary of the 1987 Stock Market Crash.
10 Investment Oracles to speak at this very timely all day event.
SATURDAY’S SPEAKERS and Topics
MARK SKOUSEN (Forecasts and Strategies): Are we Rome? Summary and Guidance.
Mark called the ’87 crash the month before. So it is very appropriate that he will lead a panel on this anniversary date of the 87 market crash entitled “Can We Crash Again?” Mark will give us a recap of this year’s July FreedomFest theme, “ARE WE ROME”? and share ideas presented there plus he will provide an update on where we are now in light of recent events. IMPORTANT: October 19th is Mark Skousen’s birthday. So at the end of the day (5:30pm) we will celebrate the Birthday Boy with a Crash Bash party for him. “Let them eat cake!”
BERT DOHMEN (Wellington Letter): Invest Now or Head for Cover?
Bert was one of the few who predicted the 2007-2008 global crisis, first in the April 2007 WELLINGTON LETTER, headlined “The Perfect Financial Storm.” And then in his 2007 book, PRELUDE TO MELTDOWN, which pinpointed a near-meltdown to occur in the fall of 2008. Will it happen again? Where should you be positioning your investments? What about foreign investment markets such as China? You don’t want to miss Bert’s guidance.
ADRIAN DAY (Global Strategic Management): Precious Metals and Mining Stocks – Status and Future
A top performing international and precious metals equity manager with one of the best records in these categories. We are again in one of those times when some mining companies may fail, while others have become so cheap that buying their stock is about like buying a perpetual “ call“ (say Doug Casey and Rick Rule)… Adrian will help us identify the opportunities and the risks.
VAN SIMMONS (David Hall Rare Coins): What about Alternative Tangible Investments?
Van is a Collectibles and precious metals specialist. What about the alternative tangible investment markets such as art & the hot “rare” market. For those seeking a long term haven from inflation, that they can enjoy, look at and even feel as an investment, Van will provide guidance and answer your questions.
JOHN REED (#1 Real Estate Letter Guru): Real Estate Values and the Future
Author of 38 books; West Point & Harvard MBA degrees – www.johnreed.com. John will talk about how real estate works in hyperinflation. Where are we now? 3rd or 8th inning?
FLOYD BROWN (Chief Political Analyst of Capitol Hill Daily): Divining Politics – From Policy to Profit
Author of 7 books, President of Western Center for Journalism, and advisor to 4 presidential candidates. Floyd will provide political insights that we certainly need to hear.
JEFF PHILLIPS (Independent Investment Banker): Update and Two new equity investment ideas
Looks for newer companies with growth opportunities. At our last Friends for Autism Investment Conference he presented 4 ideas. Jeff will update us on those and present 2 new ideas to us. Mark Skousen says that Jeff has made his followers a lot of money with these ideas.
FRANK TROTTER (PRESIDENT, EVERBANK DIRECT): Finding investment advantages in currencies now…
Will discuss which currencies could be a better store of value and the potential implications of another Cyprus for the global financial system.
JEFF VERDON (Estate Planning Attorney): Protecting Wealth in light of estate/taxation changes
Jeff will be providing general guidance on updating wealth and estate planning in today’s environment.
MARTIN TRUAX (MANAGING DIRECTOR, INVESTMENTS, RAYMOND JAMES): The Big Picture and Our Forecast
With a follow up to the “Evergreen Portfolio” concept, from Martin’s 2010 book co-authored with several of the above speakers. How can we adapt going forward? From Martin’s newsletter, The Big Picture, he will discuss investment choices and practical action…. Our tactical management program also signaled a sell two months in advance of the ’87 crash. We will show you exactly what our signals are saying this October 19th (2013).
Access to Oracles: Sunday Morning Session – Optional
9:00am until Noon
If you stay overnight, prepare to interact with our oracles on Sunday morning with some lively sessions that will be highlighted by Bert Dohmen’s one hour Q&A session: “No holes barred.” These interactive sessions with Bert are always very popular as there will be lots of time to discuss the questions you, the participants, have regarding the markets. Access to Oracles will include Mark Skousen leading a Q&A roundtable as well as Q&As with Martin Truax, Adrian Day, Jeff Verdon, and others.
Here are a few of our Sunday morning topics:
EQUITY MARKET VOLATILITY –managing the risk of another CRASH going forward
“EXECUTIVE RULE” – will this become the new order of the day?
FINDING SAFE YIELD in a low rate environment
CAPITAL PRESERVATION STRATEGIES – is long term buy & hold dead?
WHAT’S THE GREATER DANGER? INFLATION OR DEFLATION?
GENERATING RELIABLE RETIREMENT INCOME
PROVIDING FOR THE COSTS OF LONG TERM HEALTH CARE – alternatives to self-funding
Please see more information below regarding our
conference goal, schedule, venue and registration.
For all conference participants, we want to provide answers and guidance as to where the best investment opportunities are today, the timing of funding those investment decisions as well as what to avoid. Is your wealth and investment plan well balanced and prepared for what may come? Helping you organize your decision making process across a number of investment disciplines and assets choices is our goal.
This is a critical time for investors. Given what is going on politically and economically in the US and globally right now, how does one navigate a profitable investment course? Are investors looking over the precipice or is it “full steam ahead” as we ride the coattails of the Federal Reserve?
We have assembled a group of speakers who are tops in their respective areas. These “oracles” have earned their investment spurs over decades and have guided many investors in preserving what they have and in taking advantage of great investment opportunities. Two of our key oracles are Mark Skousen and Bert Dohmen. Both men have a history of calling significant turns in the markets.
