I'm Michael Dlan, your host for the next few minutes as we chat with financial expert, business owner and author John Browning. Hello, John Browning, welcome back to your podcast. Is going to be a fun one today, don't you think? I think so. Yeah, I'm looking forward to well, I am too. Last episode we talked about Robin Hood and we talked about, you know, the whole Robin Hood App thing and investing, but we also talk about in the cartoon, because I watched that with my girls recently and the original Robin Hood Cartoon and it was really good. And and there's a this...

...one scene when when the king's comment or the prince he's not really the king and in Robin Hood gets in and does this crystal ball thing and it's just a great scene, right. And that's where I want to talk about today, because I want to set you up, John, kind of, because you get this crystal ball ish thing that we talked about every once in a while about where's the market going? As John Browning looks into your little financial crystal ball, I want to know where the where the markets going, but because you know you and I, we rarely talk about the market and the opportunities that are out there. Because you know this podcast. We want to make sure John Listeners understand this podcast is a podcast, not about investing advice. Right, that comes in a personal conversation with you. But but I know that you have written and and you've recorded some videos talking about where you see the markets going and I just wondered if I could, you know,...

...peer into that crystal ball a little bit. Could you? Could you address some of the recent market events in just real general terms to help us what you see in that little crystal ball a years absolutely, it's me. This is you know, I could go on for hours, so you may, but I'll try and keep it short. And hopefully people get something out of it. But, like I said, it's not personal investment advice. Any kind of investment in the market carries with it risk and you need to talk to somebody who understands that risk and understands who you are as an individual before you step in and take some of that risk and see if that's something that you're really willing to do with your assets and how much of that risk you're willing to take. But to look into the kind of they call it a crystal ball. Nobody knows what happens in the future. But having done this for as many decades and given away my age there a little bit as I have, I've studied under some of the greatest minds on the Wall Street,...

...which has been a real privilege for me and it's given me some insight into how the market works and why some things might go up and buy when other things might not go up and value. So people ask me all the time, are you bullish on the market? Well, okay, so what's the market? Right? We talk about the SMP five hundred. I'm not nearly as bullish on an index as I am with some of the components of that index. Especially going forward. But recently I did a video and wrote a blog about the hundred year difference, which, hundred years ago, what was brand new? Well, the model t for did finally come out and was part of the mainstream. In a normal, average, every day folks could buy a model t for it first time ever. They had just discovered how...

...to use insulin to help treat diabetes, brand new, never never seen that before. The radio, brand new, a new way of communicating. You could address the entire nation, and they did, and a first broadcast in one thousand nine nine hundred and twenty one, I believe, is when it was. So you had a confluence of what we look at today. Is Not. Wow, that's old right. But what did that open up in terms of the market and, you know, ability to move forward as an e as an Ecod well, you have the roaring twins, right. So what do we have now? That's somewhat similar to that, and I think there's really five different things that are really driving the market today and there's one underlying theme that's supporting that, and those are number one, and this is what's really supporting a lot of the innovation that we're seen today, and it's artificial intelligence, which is powered by what is soon coming, which I believe...

...is going to be quantum computing, which just makes artificial intelligence that much faster and that much better. And then that powers the electric vehicles. And that's not just electric cars, it's drones, it's it's aircraft, it's things like that. There's alternative energy storage, battery transmission, all of that also helped being powered by artificial intelligence. There's autonomous vehicles or robotics, the g and the faster speeds of communication from coast to coast and the next generation of wireless feed after that. Again, a lot of that's made possible by artificial intelligence. And then a really big one that I'm really looking forward to seeing where we go with it, and we've seen it recently in action, is genomics healthcare. And how did they come up with these vaccines for the pandemic so...

...quickly? Well, they tested them using artificial intelligence and that communication back and forth between countries and scientists also helped. So those are just and so that's when you think about it, that's a lot more stuff than we had back in one thousand nine hundred and twenty one. That's fairly new. Fairly new innovative things that are happening and those are the sectors, in areas of the market that I'm most excited about, most bullish onn but what that means is that some old line companies that aren't as innovative, have not been as quick to move into those areas, may not be an out of five hundred stocks and say something like the SMP five hundred index, probably aren't going to fare as well. So knowing when not to use the index and knowing what individual securities or exchange traded funds or products whatever to use is extremely important, maybe more important than it ever has been, and that's why you utilize a financial...

...advisor. That was a very good answer, John Browning, and you laid out those five things. Was Five areas. That was really interesting and the point that you just made their the very, very end, that I think people may not have caught, that I want to tap into is it's not about the stocks, it's about the companies, and Guardian rock wealth is about investing, really, correct me if I'm wrong, in companies. You want to invest in the companies and you want to know how those companies are, Maine, itch and Allah, because that's that's really where the the growth of the wealth comes from, right, and that's just interesting, peering into your crystal ball and understanding how you think that's that takes years of experience, right, and lots of data and things, stuff that I know you get jazzed about. Praise God, let me do right. People like me, Battye, but that's why people like me do what I do and people like you do what you do. So we need you, John. Well, I enjoy it, is it's a lot of fun and you know, it's one.

One Quick Caveot to is, you know, sometimes people get confused. They think, well, I need to invest my whole portfolio in all these super new, innovative companies. Yeah, about balance, and frankly, there are a lot of innovative companies that do really boring things. Yes, some of the best investments I've ever made of been in quote, boring companies, but they've been the innovative companies and they've done what they do in innovative, different new ways and gotten ahead of the competition. That's the kind of stuff that you really look for. Yeah, that's cool. Well, that's kind of stuff you look for right now. Yeah, but that's really cool. That and that's why you need somebody like John on your financial team to help help so that you can live your life and have that portfolio of your dreams, because John's doing all the hard work behind the scenes. He's doing all this stuff and bringing to you and discussing with you how this specific thing is going to really play into your portfolio, which is going to make your portfolio...
