Now Available On Demand

You don’t need to look too hard to notice that “irrational exuberance” has once again made a comeback. This is the most overvalued stock market: worse than 2007, worse than 2000, even worse than 1929 according to some analysts. And this is continuing to take place despite soft economic data.

If this is giving you pause, you’re not alone. Now may be the best time to reallocate some of your stock holdings into fixed income. Take some profits while stocks are trading at historic highs and buy less-risky, yet more rewarding, income-producing securities.

Join us on this timely webcast and learn:

  • Where to best shift your money to reduce stock market risk while locking in hefty income (Hint: institutional buyers can’t touch these)
  • Why brokerage houses provide little or no information on these lower risk, higher return income securities
  • Why you don’t need to wait for the Fed to finish raising rates to make your move
  • About a class of fixed-income securities that thrive even when interest rates go up
