"Enlightenment" - A Herold & Lantern Investments Podcast featuring Mr. Keith Lanton, President.
In this episode, Keith begins by emphasizing the importance of listening and interpersonal communication, a luxury that society is increasingly allowing to slip through its fingers in favor of mobile technology and virtual communication. Keith then goes on to discuss the emergence of the COVID-19 Delta variant and the market's concern around it, as well as the ramifications of President Biden's recent withdrawal of American troops from Afghanistan. Transitioning to the financial sector, Keith makes a stark juxtaposition between prevailing interest rates and equity markets, with the former being at a record low and the latter being at an all-time high. This comes as the market awaits Federal Reserve Chairman Jerome Powell's upcoming symposium speech in Jackson Hole, Wyoming, which is now being conducted virtually. Keith concludes with Barron's touting of big tech stocks, calling them "unstoppable" as they are so deeply tied and embedded into the digital world and the global economy. Director of Fixed Income Brad Harris closes the podcast, offering some predictions and insight as to what points may be raised in Chairman Powell's upcoming symposium.
We hope you enjoy the show and share it with colleagues and friends.
