Top Ten for 2022!
It's the end of the year -- so it's time for Michael's Top Ten! Each year Michael Farr selects ten stocks from our watchlist that he particularly likes due to valuation or potential to benefit from economic conditions. In the Top Ten episode Michael reviews these companies so the listener can better understand his thinking. Please be aware these are not recommendations to buy or sell, but are examples of the type of deep consideration on a given security. Please be aware that all investment involves risk of loss of principle. Past performance is not a guide to indicator of future results. The FarrCast and Michael Farr's Top Ten list should not be construed as financial or tax advice. We strongly recommend you review with a financial professional before making any investment decision.

Devil Is in the Details
The noise from Washington has been deafening on Wall Street and across the World -- and the FarrCast is here to help you sort through it all. Michael Farr welcomes Jim Iuorio and he tells why he thinks the correction, shallow though it is, might not be done. He shares his targets, and great advice on keeping discipline whether you are a short-term trader, or long-term investor. Dan Mahaffee joins to explain the latest horse trading and what the next step in DC dealmaking will become. Though the heat is off for now, the debt ceiling madness has only been kicked down the road, not solved. Michael's special guest this week is Liz Young of SoFi Investments, and goes into detail on why she expects more modest returns in 2023 -- but reminds us "okay" returns are, in fact, okay. She gives great insights into the notion of transient inflation, and what investors need to look for in transitions to find opportunities, as well as identify threats. The FarrCast comes to you every week with insight into Wall Street, Washington, and The World -- Listen today!

Kabuki Theater of Crisis
The fights on Capitol Hill are widening, and effecting more and more of the economy. On this week's FarrCast, Michael Farr welcomes Greg Valliere of AGF Investments, and the consumate inside analyst to explain what headlines are just noise -- and what is going on behind the scenes that can hurt investors (and the broader economy.) While an agreement appears to be in place to keep government open, the debt ceiling changes everything, and the various factions within both parties are from agreement. But first, Michael welcomes Kenny Polcari to talk about what's worrying the markets at the moment: Kenny says the stock market isn't worried about the debt ceiling yet, but the continuing trifecta of inflation, rising interest rates, and the impending Federal Reserve taper. Dan Mahaffee joins to provide insight into the negotiations (and lack thereof) in Washington. Taking a deep look beyond the headlines, this week's FarrCast looks at the debt ceiling and its impact on Wall Street, Washington, and The World.

The Pendulum Swings Back
On the final summer FarrCast episode, Michael Farr and Dan Mahaffee take a look beyond the headlines at China.

But first, Michael welcomes Kenny Polcari for a discussion on the softness of the markets this week, and why no one should be surprised at seasonal volatility. Wall Street, Washington, and The World -- it's The FarrCast!
