How Much You Need to Be Wealthy

Join Downtown Josh Brown and Michael Batnick for another round of What Are Your Thoughts? On this week’s episode, Josh and Michael discuss the biggest topics in investing and finance, including:

►Earnings blowups – “$SPX companies are seeing the largest average negative price reaction to negative EPS surprises for Q1”

►Panic sell – Who is the most likely candidate to start panic selling stocks?

►Bear market barometer – A bottom for equities is likely to coincide with a peak in inflation…

►81% predict recession – “While the impact may be felt broadly, every household will experience it to varying degrees.”

►The impact of crypto zero – “The Effects of Crypto Price Fluctuations on Household Spending Are Likely Small”

►Who is wealthy? “$2.2 million is the magic number.”

►When to hedge – Does it make sense to hedge for downside protection so that a market crash doesn’t wipe out years of investing returns?

►When the dust settles – What sector (or stocks) do you think will lead the way out of this bear market?

And much more!
