Jeff Yastine’s Journey from Journalism to Investments


If you could have interviewed some of the biggest names in finance over the last few decades you would feel pretty good about your perspective on today’s financial market. Jeff Yastine has done just that and is positioned to give excellent advice to those wanting to make investments in the U.S. His role as editor of Total Wealth Insider published by Banyan Hill Publishing gives him a powerful voice in the world of finance and investing. The number of daily readers who are listening to that voice is approximately four hundred thousand and growing.

After graduating from the University of Florida with a degree in journalism, Jeff Yastine became a local television reporter in the Raleigh-Durham area of North Carolina. In 1993, he worked on the Nightly Business Report on PBS. At that time the show was entering a million homes and was the most popular daily financial broadcast in the world. He served as the roving correspondent who looked out for new investment opportunities for investment savvy viewers.

Jeff Yastine now presides over a network of global experts who have experience in wealth protection and income generation. When it comes to investing, he primarily focuses on commodities, natural resources, small-cap stocks, mid-cap stocks and option plays. He is constantly on the lookout for domestic companies who are prepared for growth.

One of the opportunities that he has talked about is something he calls the Kennedy accounts. The nickname fits as this stock purchase plan was passed into law under President John F. Kennedy. Kennedy accounts are direct stock purchase plans that you can buy directly from a company for the purpose of using the dividends from that stock to buy more stock in that same company. Right now there are less than five hundred companies that offer this plan. Sometimes companies offer a discount of roughly 5% if you buy directly from them. There are no fees in this arrangement which makes them a desirable long-term investment opportunity. This is something that Jeff Yastine highly recommends and he even has some favorites to pass along if you subscribe to his services. Watch: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=YxGq5uBBGEA
