Ep. 566: Frankly Speaking | Facebook is still a long-term buy

In this and every episode of Frankly Speaking, we discuss your top questions about the markets, stocks, the economy – even sports. 

This week (11/03/2017):

Why Facebook is still a buy after earnings… My thoughts on baseball (post-playoffs)… GE’s free-fall… A preview of Michael Alkin’s newsletter… How to figure out your investment timeline
