Frank Curzio's WALL STREET UNPLUGGED Podcast

A Sneak Preview of North Korea’s Market Opportunities

Today I welcome back Kim Iskyan, editor of International Capitalist. Kim shares his methodology for finding little-known opportunities in emerging markets… including how to travel safely where others fear to tread. Plus, he gives us a preview of the opportunities that could arise if the North Korean market is opened by peace talks.

I know from experience how difficult it is not to let personal feelings impact your investing… but we’ll discuss why it’s critical that you don’t.  

And in our education segment, I show you what’s hiding deep inside the numbers from Apple’s recent earnings call.
