The AAII Los Angeles Chapter presents...

Cyclical Bull? Or Is the Secular Bear Resuming?

    Discussed by:

    Don Richner, CFP
    Vice President, Churchill Management Group

The two secular bear markets in the last century occurred from 1929–1942 and from 1966–1982. This century started off with a third secular bear market. After more than 10 years, where are we? Are we in the middle of a secular bear market, toward the end of a secular bear market or in a cyclical bull market? Come see what the numbers and charts show. Learn what trends drive secular bear markets, how we measure them, and most importantly, how to make money in a secular bear market.

The Value of Dividends: The Prudent Speculator’s Top 2012 Stock Picks for Capital Appreciation and Income

    Discussed by:
    John Buckingham
    Chief Investment Officer, Al Frank Asset Management; Editor, The Prudent Speculator

Over time, dividend income has comprised a significant portion of long-term stock gains. And dividend payouts have been moving nicely higher as corporations have become more willing to share the wealth. Even better, over the long term, dividend-paying stocks have delivered better total return performance than non-dividend payers and generally have done so with lower volatility. Not quite the Holy Grail, but higher returns and lower risk, along with a generous income stream, make for a powerful combination, especially when stocks are attractively priced!
