Interview With John Gillin: What Kung Fu Teaches Us About Investing

What’s the best part of working in our office? Hands down, it’s the people.

Stansberry Research, our publisher, is home to tons of talented employees. We have analysts with decades of Wall Street experience, a crack editorial staff, friendly and hard-working customer service representatives, and more…

Now, one of our goals here at The Sunday Refresh is to share our experiences. We want to give our readers all the lessons we wish we would have had when we started out in finance. And for those with plenty of years in the markets, we hope to provide some refreshers on popular topics.

So we thought it was time we opened this newsletter to our colleagues and their wealth of experience… to sit down with some of the smartest people we know and find out what they’ve learned and what they see for the markets.

Today we’re sharing the inaugural episode of our new podcast, The Refresh 15. It’s a 15-minute conversation with one of our in-house experts about lessons in finance and the current state of the market.

This week, I (Amanda) sat down with John Gillin, analyst for the Stansberry NewsWire. The NewsWire is like having a “direct line” to Wall Street. It features an e-mail service, a smartphone app, and a weekly podcast where you can hear all about the latest financial news.

Along with Scott Garliss and Greg Diamond, John keeps his finger on the pulse of the economy. Their service gives you all the info you need to understand what’s going on in the markets and how you should invest. They make recommendations and forecast upcoming moves… and more than anything, give you the market news you need, without all the noise in the mainstream media.

These three analysts are our favorite sources for up-to-date money news, market commentary, and more.

In this week’s podcast, John shares with me his Wall Street background, what he thinks about the current trade war, and the one thing he wishes his younger self had known. (Hint: It involves the 70’s television show, Kung Fu.)
