(Sunday, May 10, 2020, 6:45 p.m.)  Why did the stock market surge 3.4% last week despite diasastrous economic releases from ISM, IMF, and BLS?  This 10-miinute update is a preview of Tuesday's one-hour CE webinar for advisors who members of A4A ($120).   

Coronavirus updates for advisors on A4A are posted much more often than our monthly obligation. You still pay just $120 a year but Fritz and I are upping our game to support financial advisors with the latest news and analysis for professionals online, on-demand -- even if it means reinventing the traditional approach to continuing education of financial professionals. 

At this one-credit class, Fritz Meyer shares the latest U.S. coronavirus statistics from the Institute for Health Metrics Evaluation, examining its effects on key fundamentals driving U.S. economics and financial markets.

This class reviews the latest economic data and forecasts for key fundamentals driving the economy amid the pandemic. In addition, financial market implications are analyzed, including the latest on:

I/B/E/S earnings forecasts
P/E ratios
record-low bond yields
record-high deficit and debt


Fritz was a portfolio manager in the mid-1990s at Invesco, one of the world's largest investment companies, and then Senior Investment Strategist for over a decade. Fritz has advised advisors on A4A since March 2011.

Fritz's monthly updates averaged a 4.9-star rating for the past year, and past performance is an indicator of future results: data-driven strategic long-term analysis for professional investors.

This webinar is eligible for one hour of CE credit towards the CIMA® and CPWA® certifications, CFP® CE, PACE credit toward the CLU® and ChFC® designations, and live CPA CPE credit.

 

(May 6, 2020, 6 p.m. EST)  The video on the right for business owners who have not applied for PPP adds perspective from Fritz Meyer's last weekly update, which is discussed direclty below.

Most entrepreneurs have never applied for government assistance and may be reluctant to do so now, even though they legitimately qualify and could it. They need to know  the flood of U.S. Government largess in response to the public health crisis – the $2.2 trillion CARES Act, hikes in unemployment compensation payments and expansion of food stamps – is financed with cheap money.

Fritz view is that global economics hinge on demographics and his thesis make sense of what's heappening amid the coronavirus crisis


 

 

(May 3, 2020, 1 p.m. EST) With the release of new Personal Consumption Deflator for March 2020, the extremely low inflation rate and near-zero interest and lending rates were the focus of Fritz Meyer's update this week

The seven-minute video on the right, recorded Thursday, April 30, should be viewed in the context of Fritz's thesis that demographic trends are artificially depressing U.S. lending rates. 

Over the weekend, the low inflation and zero rate was explained in the context of major world trends in this latest addition to our library of FINRA-reviewed videos for advisors.
