Victoria Greene, chief investment officer at G Squared Private Wealth, says that investors should look at where they can be best off given current global economic conditions, and says that will bring investors to large-cap domestic value stocks, and she notes that investors may not want to pursue broad diversification because the strategy tends to struggle during times of stress. "It only works when the market is working," she says, "and right now the market isn't working." She expects a recession in short order, though she believes most investors should stick with their plans rather than making moves in response to market conditions and headlines driven by volatility. Also on the show, Ed Carson, news editor at Investor’s Business Daily, discusses the latest IBD/TIPP Economic Optimism Index, which showed that economic optimism is at its lowest point in over a decade, and the personal financial outlook has never been lower since the index was created in 2001. Mike Hunstad, global head of equity and quantitative strategies for Northern Trust Asset Management, discusses how proposed regulatory changes to ESG investing will help consumers know what they are buying, and why environmental, social and governance oversight -- particularly combined with factors like investing in "quality" -- should lead to superior returns over time, and author Hal Weitzman discusses his book, "What's the Matter with Delaware: How the First State Has Favored the Rich, Powerful and Criminal – and How it Costs Us All."
