Jeff Macke Unplugged

jeff macke interview

Welcome back to another episode of Wall Street Unplugged.

My guest today is Jeff Macke, former hedge fund manager and market expert.

On this episode, Jeff and I discuss Amazon, the Fed, and whether or not he will reinvent the hedge fund industry.

We begin our discussion on why brick and mortar stores have an advantage over Amazon.

Jeff believes that, unlike what you may here on the news, malls will never be extinct.

Jeff also breaks down the Federal Reserve and how the institution has zero transparency. The 17 board members of the Fed are almost always inconsistent, making it incredibly difficult to trade stocks. 

Finally, Jeff talks about his future plans after being the host of Yahoo! Finance — including reinventing the hedge fund industry.

Jeff tells me he may be looking to open his own fund with a better fee structure and  better returns. He’s not promising anything though (although, to me, it does sound like Jeff is planning to open up a new fund in the near-term). 

Jeff is one of the few analysts in the media who speaks his mind. He doesn’t care who he offends and always has conviction in every stock or sector he recommends.

Whether you agree with Jeff or not, you will know exactly where he stands on many issues after listening to this special interview.

As always, thanks for listening and good investing.
