Steven McClurg of Valkyrie Investments -- which has filed registration papers to create two different Bitcoin-related ETFs -- says that cryptocurrency shouldn't be seen as a replacement for gold and precious metals or as a store of value, but instead is growing into a way that transactions are being done around the world, and is starting to become something that corporations must invest in as part of their international trade. That maturation process, he says, will be helped along as regulators start to ease restrictions and allow more cryptocurrency funds into the market. Also on the show, Tom Lydon of makes a thematic dividend growth fund his ETF of the Week, Francesa Ortegren of Clever Real Estate discusses how Americans are struggling to make ends meet late in the pandemic, and Jonathan Smucker of Marietta Investment Partners talks top-down stock selection in the Market Call.
