For Immediate Release

Chicago, IL—February 17, 2017—Zacks Investment Research is a leading provider of investment-related data, research, and commentary. Each week, several of the company’s analysts and editors publish exclusive podcasts that highlight some of the financial world’s top stories and provide investors with a variety of strategies based on Zacks’ proven stock-picking methods.

Market Edge with Tracey Ryniec

On Episode #70 of the Zacks Market Edge Podcast, Tracey Ryniec is joined by Neena Mishra, Zacks Director of ETF Research, to discuss the investing opportunities in India.

With the Indian government working stimulate growth throughout its economy, investors finally have an opportunity to cash in on the world’s second-most populous nation. This enormous economy, which was once relatively closed off to foreign investment, is now presenting some of the best growth opportunities on the planet.

Tracey and Neena highlight how American behemoths like Apple AAPL, Tesla TSLA, Facebook FB, Amazon AMZN, and Netflix NFLX could be the secret to unlocking India’s potential.

The Dutram Report with Eric Dutram

On Episode #11 of The Dutram Report, Zacks ETF Strategist Eric Dutram spoke with Keith Denerstein, the Director of Guidance Product Management at TD Ameritrade, about the differences in trading behavior across generations.

Eric and Keith broke down the asset allocation for each generation and discussed some of the top holdings within the different age groups. The pair also discussed some of the latest trends in the market since the election of Donald Trump and questioned whether politics could have any impact on the investment decisions of the Baby Boomers, Millennials, or Gen Xers.

Finally, Eric and Keith took a look at how these generations tend to regard income and yield-based investments, debated whether Millennials prefer broad market index funds, and highlighted how Gen Xers are disproportionately invested in emerging markets.

Value Investor with Tracey Ryniec

On Episode #30 of the Value Investor Podcast, Tracey Ryniec discussed the recent Form 13F filings by the big hedge fund managers and what it tells us about the current status of renowned billionaire investor Warren Buffett.

Tracey highlighted Buffett’s new positions in Southwest Airlines LUV, Monsanto MON, and Sirius XM Holdings SIRI; discussed his largest holding, The Kraft Heinz Company KHC; and considered the challenges of being a cash-rich firm with only large-cap positions.

For those that want to be less large-cap focused than Buffett, Tracey put the spotlight on small-cap stocks like Gray Television GTN, Malibu Boats MBUU, and Republic Bancorp RBCAA, which are all displaying strong value metrics right now.

Friday Finish Line with Ryan McQueeney and Maddy Johnson

On Episode #36 of the Zacks Friday Finish Line, Content Writer Ryan McQueeney and Editor Maddy Johnson welcomed the Chief Investment Officer of KraneShares, Brendan Ahern, to talk about investing in China.

KraneShares is a leading provider of China-focused exchange-traded funds and Chinese investment education. Brendan joined the hosts of the Finish Line for a special beginner’s guide to the Chinese economy and the different investment opportunities in the country.

Brendan spent some time dispelling common misconceptions about China, pointing out that the Chinese middle class has grown and the economy is less-dependent on exports than ever before. He also explained how KraneShares’ unique line of ETFs can help interested investors get involved in China.

Tech Talk Tuesdays with Ryan McQueeney

On Episode #1 of Zacks Tech Talk Tuesdays, Content Writer Ryan McQueeney explored the rumor that Apple will be using wireless charging in its upcoming iPhone 8.

While all signs point to the iPhone 8 having some level of wireless charging computability, Ryan pointed out how many investors have established a link between Apple and Energous Corporation WATT, a developer of new, advanced wireless charging technologies.

Ryan remained skeptical as to whether Energous will be able to deliver its proposed wireless charger with a 15-foot range in time to make it in the iPhone 8, but he was willing to applaud Energous for their potentially world-changing design.
