Exclusive Interview with Ken Fisher, Billionaire Money Manager, about the Stock Market

This interview was recorded almost exactly one year ago.

The following fascinating interview was provided by Kenneth L. Fisher, head of the money management firm Fisher Investments, long time columnist for Forbes Magazine, billionaire, and author of numerous books. His latest book is Beat the Crowd: How You Can Out-Invest the Herd by Thinking Differently, which I highly recommend.

You may have seen him on TV commercials, or you may have spotted his magazine ads. If you are a reader of Forbes, you would definitely find his column. Fisher is on the Forbes 400 list of richest Americans and Forbes world billionaires list. According to Investment Advisor magazine, he is one of the 30 most influential people in the investment advisory business over the last 30 years. Fisher is considered to be the largest wealth manager in the United States.
We cover a lot in this interview, including:

  • Whether or not we are still in a bull market
  • What it means to be a true contrarian
  • What the professional forecasters are predicting for the stock market this year (and why they are probably wrong)
  • Using the Leading Economics Index to predict the next few months
  • The concept of “not in the next 30 months”
  • Positive and negative “Elephants in the Room”
  • Concerns about the future consequences of punishing good banks for bailing out bad banks
  • Annuities, terrorism, climate change, debt, and much, much more.
