Financial Reporter, Jeff Yastine
Total Wealth Insider editor, Jeff Yastine, is an expert at what he does. In 2015, he joined Banyan Hill Publishing Company as an editorial director. By then, he had more than twenty years’ experience in financial journalism and stock market investment. Jeff also shares his views, on a weekly basis, on Winning Investor Daily and Banyan Hill Sovereign Investor. He points out the profit-making ventures that investors could consider and helps them to have a deeper understanding of prevailing economic, business and monetary trends.
Between the years 1994 and 2010, Mr. Yastine was an Emmy nominee of anchor and correspondent at PBS Nightly Business. He has had the privilege of interviewing some of the world’s most successful financiers, including Warren Buffet, Sir Richard Branson, Michael Dell, among others. In the process, he was able to acquire invaluable investment knowledge and secrets.
Through his reporting, some of the most successful investment opportunities have been discovered. These are not confined to just one sector. They range from agriculture to “big box” retail to biopharmaceuticals development. Opportunities that have been discovered are in both large company turnarounds and small growth stocks.
His reporting has helped warn investors about various financial risks, for example, the real estate crisis that occurred in the mid-2000s. Another example is the rapid rise of the 2000 dot-com bubble, which was unsustainable. He has also featured some major national events in his reports, for example, the Deepwater Horizon oil spill, which occurred in 2010, the impact that the foreign automakers had due to the building of new manufacturing plants in the south-east part of the United States, the 1999 Panama Canal handover, the effect of Hurricane Katrina, which occurred in 2005, on the economy, among others. Jeff is passionate about what he does and doesn’t allow any kind of obstacle to come between him and his work. His report on the role that foreign investors played in Cuba’s national economy resulted in him visiting the country twice, in 1994 and 2003.
In 2007, Mr. Yastine was nominated for the Business Emmy Award because of his exemplary report on the underfunded road systems, bridges and other public infrastructure forms in the United States. In 2002, he was part of a team of NBR journalists who received the Financial Journalism Award because of presenting a special nation’s bond market report.
