Addicted to Yield: Wall Street's Dirty Little Secret

Real VisionJanuary 14, 2020
New York Times' bestselling author, former M&A investment banker, and long-time financial journalist, William Cohan, joins Ed Harrison to discuss the perilous state of U.S. credit markets, quantitative easing, junk bonds, and the ever-expanding pool of global debt. Predicated on the idea that persistently low interest rates have fueled distortions in the pricing of risk, Cohan argues that Wall Street has been developing a dangerous dependency that won't end profitably for the majority of investors.

The Ultimate Macro Phase Change
Russell Clark, CIO of Horseman Capital Management, sits down with Real Vision CEO, Raoul Pal, to discuss the new risk-reward paradigm he sees on the horizon. Clark explains why he believes that the past decade – characterized by low growth, falling commodity prices, and a strong dollar – is coming to an end. Clark and Pal look at ratios such as gold/oil and growth/value to interest rates, and Clark suggests that a prolonged wave of commodity price appreciation could become the new normal once aggregate demand returns to pre-crisis levels. Clark also discusses China and its Belt and Road Initiative in great detail. Clark and Pal consider the potential returns of assets within emerging markets, as well as commodities such as gold and oil. Filmed on May 26, 2020.

The Great Reset
Stephen Clapham, founder of Behind the Balance Sheet, analyzes the unique challenges that companies worldwide are facing during the ongoing pandemic. Using forensic accounting, Clapham surveys the financial landscape to identify risks and opportunities. He argues that the crisis will force companies to prioritize shoring up their balance sheet, and that as a result, stock buybacks will be diminished and return on equity across various sectors will suffer. Clapham reviews how companies have been juicing their earnings with “adjusted” figures, and he argues that this pandemic is a catalyst for a “great reset” in which executives use the ongoing crisis as an excuse to accurately tally their companies’ earnings. Across a longer time horizon, Clapham expects inflationary pressures to mount as central banks continue to monetize debt and as major players in consolidated industries – such as hospitality, retail, and airlines – gain pricing power.
