The AAII Los Angeles Chapter presents...

My Favorite Growth and Income Investments After the Euro Crisis

    Discussed by:

    Mark Skousen Ph.D.
    Presidential Fellow, Chapman University; Editor in Chief, Forecasts & Strategies

The European debt crisis has been the key factor in stock market performance in recent months. Are the bailouts and austerity programs there sufficient, or will more changes be necessary? What does the future portend for the United States, which faces a similar debt crisis? Will the Middle East erupt again? Dr. Mark Skousen will draw upon his expertise and experience (over 33 years writing his award-winning newsletter) to answer these questions. He will offer specific advice on how to profit, especially with extraordinary high-dividend-paying stocks and funds in a well-diversified portfolio that has consistently beaten the market over the past one-, three-, five- and 10-year periods.
