The Metaverse Social Media Pic
In many ways, the virtual reality space, Web 3.0, holds both experiential and financial opportunities for the future. But how can we tell the difference between those opportunities that are authentic and those which are not? In this episode, we are joined by VR content creator Brody Parksua, to discuss the economic potential of Web 3.0. *Symmetry is not affiliated with Brody Parksua.

Q2 2022 Quarter in Perspective-2

Unusual Alts_Thumbnail-1

“Alternative Investments” are those that do not fall into one of the conventional investment categories of stocks, bonds, and cash. While you may be familiar with Crypto and NFTs, what you may be less familiar with are some of the more unusual categories such as; art, wine, specialty real estate like farmland, rare books…and sneakers?! Today, we are joined by Wyatt Cavalier, Chief Investment Officer of Alts.co, to discuss how investors may potentially benefit from some amount of exposure to "alt funds".

Story Stocks_Part 2-2

As we all know, no single market trend lasts forever. Even the online streaming industry has fundamentally changed in recent weeks (on the heels of the pandemic). In this episode, we are joined once again by Symmetry's Andrew Willard, Research Analyst, to debate the topic of Netflix's recent financial performance as compared to other, more diversified companies, such as Disney.

 

Story Stocks Part 1-2

"Story Stocks" can be described as investments of artificially inflated value. From time to time, mass media coverage of a given stock will bolster its popularity by way of broad speculation and forecasting. In this first half of a two-part episode on the subject, we are joined by Symmetry's Andrew Willard, Research Analyst, to discuss the importance of resisting spontaneous, or popular, investment decisions and keeping to a reasonable investment approach.

 


Quarter-in-Perspective_Q12022

Markets reflected a host of investor concerns during the first quarter of 2022.  Over the past four decades, U.S. investors have experienced declining interest rates, benign inflation, globalization of trade, and relative stability among the world’s superpowers.  During the first quarter of 2022 those trends were upended as markets were faced with rising interest rates, spiking inflation, ongoing supply-chain snarls, and a land-war in Europe. Stocks and bonds alike slumped.

Russia Invasion

In this special installment of Unfiltered Finance, we are joined by William Chettle, Symmetry's Director of Experience and Engagement, to explore the ramifications of Russia's invasion of the Ukraine, including the immediate and potential longer-term impact for investors, markets and the global economy.
