Amidst all the understandable (and very real) doom-and-gloom in today’s market, Rhys has identified some bright spots, and some areas where investors may see potential in the coming months.
Kate and Rhys discuss:

-Will the 60/40 portfolio work for the latter part of the year, and why?
-What are commodity prices saying about the future of the market?
-How should investors be looking at their allocations, while considering investments such as MLPs or REITs?
-Why dividend yields should be a part of your investment strategy?
-How does Rhys view the future of the energy industry, and what that means for investors?
-What is the future of REITs, given that they track different types of properties?
