Fritz Meyer Was Right About Earnings


Two months ago, economist Fritz Meyer began using the phrase, "upward revisions to accelerating earnings," to describe the outlook for profits. The new tax law, he said, would gradually add eight percentage points to 2018 earnings growth on the S&P 500. 

Since Fritz first made this observation in late December, earnings forecasts tracked by Thomson Reuters I/B/E/S have been ratcheting higher fairly steadily. For weeks, advisors subscribing to our website platform have benefited from a weekly financial news stream with updaties on the unfolding earnings surge. Clients and contacts saw it in emails, videos, articles, tweets, scripts and animated GIFs, all of which are customized personally.

Explaining Modern Portfolio Theory To Advisor Clients In Pictures, Words, And Music

If you manage assets in diversified portfolios, your clients’ portfolios are probably trailing the S&P 500. Since the financial press reports on performance of the S&P 500, clients usually expect your advice to keep pace with the S&P 500, and you may not be meeting their expectations. Prudent financial professionals who rely on Modern Portfolio Theory are vulnerable to advisors peddling far less prudent advice.  

This video is what Advisor Products is doing to help professionals who doing the right thing to communicate about this issue effectively and inexpensively using modern Internet tools.

New Marketing Campaign For Independent Advisors Takes on Wall Street

Here’s a one-minute clip from our new Video For Independent Advisers Who Are  Fiduciaries. It highlights key factors of your unique value proposition in four innovative ways:

  1. Personal Narration. Using a Web app we’ve developed, you narrate a FINRA-reviewed script we provide. The words are displayed slide by slide and you record using your computer microphone.
  2. Fritz Meyer Research.  The video reports on research independent economist Fritz Meyer, who has documented the track record of Wall Street’s top strategists from 2007 to 2014, as published in Barron’s annually in the venerable weekly’s “Outlook” cover story. According to Meyer, a former investment strategist at one of the world’s largest investment companies, any investor who followed the consensus advice of the Barron’s Wall Street strategists’ industry-sector picks annually would have performed disastrously relative to buying and holding the S&P 500.
  3. Fiduciary. The video explains the benefits of working with a fiduciary.
  4. Powerful Video. Economic research lends its to graphical display, and this video includes graphical cues inserted to make the information easy to understand. While you explain your fiduciary obligations, an aerial view pans New York Harbor at night for a 360s° close-up of the Statue of Liberty. While you narrate a script contrasting your practice with a Wall Street’s broker's, viewers see the skeletal remains of the head of a bull amid the scorched earth of Death Valley, California.

For a fiduciary, this video voices a clear response to people who don’t know how you are different from Wall Street’s herds. This campaign breaks new ground in independent advisor marketing by making a professional video easy to personalize and distributing it utilizing Advisor Products' email marketing integration with Constant Contact. It equalizes TV ads and media influence of Wall Street.
