No, Kelley Wright is not talking politics. Since the introduction of QE into the markets in '08-'09, the markets, and therefore market participants, have enjoyed an environment where they have in large part been protected by the Fed monetarily and from the Congress fiscally. Inflation, the real kind in the real world, not the phony bologna stuff regurgitated by an intentionally obtuse media, is starting to show signs of emergence. The bond market, which has been AWOL since '08-'09, is starting to exhibit a heartbeat. In an inflationary, rising interest rate environment, active management, the ability to pick stocks that are high-quality and offer good value, will outperform passive indexing. In this workshop Kelley Wright will demonstrate the IQ Trends method of identifying high-quality stocks and when they offer good value.

In this workshop with Kelley Wright, you will learn how to identify stocks that you dont have to worry about, even if Wall Street was closed for five years and then reopened.
In this low-interest-rate environment, safe and ample income streams are truly invaluablealso much harder to come by. Retirees in search of dependable income streams have to consider alternative strategies that go beyond stocks and bonds. This discussion will explore how you can supplement income from traditional fixed-income investments with durable income from sources such as REITs that offer solid yields, without taking on uncomfortably higher levels of risk.
