We cover a lot in this interview, including:

  • The stock market under President Donald Trump versus former Vice President Joe Biden
  • The influence of corporate tax rate on the stocks 
  • The potential of the reversal of Trump’s tax bill on Day One if Joe Biden & Kamila Harris win the election
  • The market under Republicans versus Democrats
  • Whether inflation is on the horizon
  • The petroleum industry
  • Gross Output, GDP, and the economy versus the stock market
  • Are stock ratios dead? (PE, PS, PEG)
  • And much, much more

Two Timeless Books Mentioned by Ken Fisher in the Interview

The Only Three Questions That Still Count: Investing By Knowing What Others Don’t (A great companion to the  Beat the Crowd: How You Can Out-Invest the Herd by Thinking Differently book, which I enjoyed reading.)

Wall Street Waltz 

(My favorite of all his books is The Ten Roads to Riches: The Ways the Wealthy Got There (And How You Can Too!) Second Edition,  because it is so different from all the other financial publications. It basically tells you ten ways, with all the steps, to get really rich, including “marrying a billionaire.” Lot’s of insight and lots of humor. You can find more info about this book on a previous podcast: Interview with Billionaire Ken Fisher about the 10 Roads to Riches.)

Top Sports Betting Stocks

 Please note that this is a sister publication of WallStreetNewsNetwork ( ) and postings will end on this site shortly. 

Sports are coming back. Online betting is increasing. What companies are benefiting?

Two years ago, the Supreme Court allowed betting on sports in all states, with each state deciding whether to allow this form of gambling or not. Several states have already legalized online sports betting. Many more states are considering legislation. These changes should lead to more online gambling, and a transition from illegal gambling to legal betting.

Even NBC Sports Broadcaster Jim Kozimor mentioned in an interview that sports betting will be an extremely strong growth industry.

So if you are looking for a way to profit from sports gambling, you should look at the stocks that should benefit from the online betting on sports events.

DraftKings (DKNG) is one of the largest pure plays in the online sports betting arena. This was one of the stocks that was created from a SPAC. Revenues for this $20.6 billion market cap company were up 23.6% for the latest quarter. Earnings are minimal giving it a price to earnings ratio of over 1000.

Flutter Entertainment (PDYPY) is one of the largest daily fantasy sports providers and a leader in the legal sports betting market. The company was formerly named Paddy Power Betfair. This $25 billion market cap company trades at 47.5 times earnings.

Boyd Gaming Corp. (BYD), an operator of a company that runs over a dozen casinos across the United States, offers its B Connected Sports app in order to take advantage of increased legalization. The stock trades at 30.9 times forward earnings.

Stocks Going Ex Dividend in October 2020

Please note that this is a sister publication of WallStreetNewsNetwork ( ) and postings will end on this site shortly. 

The following is a short list of some of the many stocks going ex dividend during the next month.

Many traders and investors use the stock trading technique called ‘Buying Dividends,’ also commonly referred to as ‘Dividend Capture.’ This is the strategy of buying stocks before the ex dividend date and selling the stock shortly after the ex date at about the same price, yet still being entitled to the dividend.


This technique generally works in bull markets and flat or choppy markets, but you need to avoid the strategy during bear markets. In order to be entitled to the dividend, you have to buy the stock before the ex-dividend date, and you can’t sell the stock until after the ex date.

The actual dividend may not be paid for another few weeks. has compiled a downloadable and sortable list of the stocks going ex dividend in the near future. The list contains many dividend paying companies, lots with market caps over $500 million, and many with yields over 2%. Here are a few examples showing the stock symbol, the ex-dividend date, the periodic dividend amount.

Keurig Dr Pepper Inc. (KDP)10/1/20200.152.21%
Oracle Corporation (ORCL)10/7/20200.241.61%
Foot Locker, Inc. (FL)10/15/20200.151.87%
Lowe’s Companies, Inc. (LOW)10/20/20200.601.48%
Williams-Sonoma, Inc. (WSM)10/22/20200.482.15%
Royal Bank Of Canada (RY)10/23/20200.8284.68%

Dividend definitions:

Declaration date: the day that the company declares that there is going to be an upcoming dividend.

Ex-dividend date: the day on which if you buy the stock, you would not be entitled to that particular dividend; or the first day on which a shareholder can sell the shares and still be entitled to the dividend.

Record date: the day when you must be on the company’s books as a shareholder to receive the dividend. The ex-dividend date is normally set for stocks at two business days before the record date.

Payment date: the day on which the dividend payment is actually made, which can be as long at two months after the ex date.


Don’t forget to reconfirm the ex-dividend date with the company before implementing this technique.
