Trends with Benefits #20 with Michael Batnick: What Does Today’s Market Strength Mean for Tomorrow?
Ed Lopez, Head of ETF Product
July 28, 2020
Michael co-hosts the weekly Animal Spirits podcast with Ben Carslon, where they discuss what they’ve been reading about in financial markets and beyond. I was excited to talk to him about it and how he got his start but also wanted to get his long-term perspective about markets today. Top of mind for him was the ongoing strength of the stock market and the dominance of a few names sitting atop major market indices. What happens to these names over the next ten years and can they really continue to see the same dominant rate of growth they have these last few years?
Speaking of podcasting, Michael is part of a team at Ritholz Wealth Management who have seemed to master the art of content creation. He along with Barry Ritholz, Josh Brown and Ben Carlson write blogs, author books, co-host podcasts, and frequently appear on TV. Given all that, he has surprising comments for advisors thinking about jumping into the content game.
