EMID REPORTS

These reports provide very readable and understandable explanations of market volatility and what can be expected in the short and medium terms. They also provide the reader with a series of analyses and coping strategies provided by experts with decades of experience and investing. And for those who have trouble sleeping at night because of the status of their investments, we provide a little unusual humor, tied to the stock market. The author is a longtime financial journalist with a byline in several countries.

Why I write these Reports…

Some things never really change, notwithstanding the way in which they come to us. Writers and their motivations would head that list. The early artists who used cave walls as a canvas, the scribes who wrote on parchment, the would-be publishers who flocked to Johannes Gutenberg’s invention, and those who publish online have had at least one thing in common through the ages: someone had a story to tell and hoped that the audience would appreciate it and perhaps even take it to heart.

That seems unlikely to change despite unparalleled advances in technology and changes in public attitudes and tastes.

Sometimes an author or a journalist decides to tell a story simply because it seems necessary. In a recent example, I became genuinely appalled at some of the investment projections I heard concerning so-called “pot (marijuana) stocks” and wrote about them, though strictly speaking they were outside of my normal pursuits. I did that because I could not believe some of what I was reading and hearing and felt the need to separate hyperbole from fact (which is often what a journalist does). It could be said that I had become “professionally alarmed.” And I had to take great care to put my position clearly: I was not taking issue with anyone who wanted to smoke pot for medicinal or recreational purposes. Rather, I was taking issue with some of what was passing for investment analysis of pot stocks.

After reading Al Emid’s books I decided to enter the stock market.

For anyone who is concerned about their savings and investments in these uncertain times, veteran journalist Al Emid explains in clear language the reasons why the financial markets are so volatile. With the insights of experts who have a global perspective, The Emid Report on Volatility 2019 and 2020 will help the average person to think about steps to take to protect their money and reduce their stress in these crazy times.

Don Loney, Business Editor

Al Emid researches the issues that are the subject of his books BEFORE you even know they’re the issues you need to understand – frontier markets, ISIS, and more recently what you REALLY need to know about market volatility in 2019 and 2020.  In an era of fake news and no-bake news (grab and mix trite comments from the internet), he serves up tasty reading you can understand.

THE EMID REPORT 2021

The role of journalists, and by extension authors writing factual material, has come under intense scrutiny, especially during this time of the “fake news” phenomenon. We are increasingly second guessed as the number and variety of media platforms dramatically increase, exposing the public to questionable reporting and even outright falsehoods disguised as fact-based information, some of it in the financial world.

That increases the pressure on readers and viewers to select their media carefully, and it increases the pressure on media professionals such as myself to ensure that audiences are assured of getting the straight goods.

Since writing The Emid Report on Volatility 2019, I have begun the 2021 edition to address new levels of the complexity surrounding market volatility. Having observed and written about the financial sector for more than 30 years, I  bring a learned and independent perception to bear, complemented by an impressive list of subject matter experts, some of whom have several decades of experience in their fields, and on whom I can depend for expert insights.

HOW TO CONTROL YOUR FINANCES IN A CRAZY WORLD

Three factors are absolutely certain to continue to influence the financial world in years to come: financial products will continue to get ever more complex; the current volatility will continue; and the need for investors to make correct choices will become ever more important, driven by factors such as longevity risk (which we would not have considered years ago), eldercare, medical care, the gig economy, employment uncertainty ,the decrease in defined benefit plans and delayed independence of offspring.

In How to Control Your Finances in a Crazy World, I provide a survival guide to help you navigate all of the above. To do this I combine knowledge gained in over 30 years of financial journalism with the insights of advisors, analysts and financial executives.

AL EMID, AUTHOR — SPEAKER

Since his first job at a television network, Al Emid has always worked at communicating ideas and information: first in television and film and in later years on radio and in magazines, trade publications and online. During the past five years he has authored or co-authored five books and in What You Need to Know about ISIS: Terror, Religion, War and the Caliphate he pulls in analysis from a global roster of experts to help readers understand how ISIS got started and where it might go if not conclusively defeated. He distinguishes between the aspects that we should be concerned about and those that we do not need to worry about.
