THE RADIO BLOG
This week, Chris Mayer, editor of Capital & Crisis and one of the best international investors I know, speaks to S&A Investor Radio. In this 40-minute interview, Chris talks about the markets and share his favorite stock ideas. He talks about one of the cheapest emerging markets to invest in (a place that 95% of investors wouldn't touch with a 10-foot pole). It's cheap, has little debt, and is resource-rich... you won't want to miss this! Plus, Chris tells us why investors should avoid gold stocks – at least in the short term. - Interviewed by Frank Curzio
