Jeff Yastine has been with Banyan Hill Publishing since 2015 as the editorial director. After working for over twenty years as a financial reporter, Yastine has turned his experience to educating investors as the editor of Total Wealth Insider. On a weekly basis, he contributes to two newsletters, Winning Investor Daily and Sovereign Investor Daily, which provide investment information to subscribers to help them understand the different aspects of investment and warn them when necessary. Jeff keeps using his influence as a business journalist to bring investment news closer to the people even on social sites like Facebook.
Anyone who has been watching the financial news has heard the name Jeff Yastine, and that is because he was one of the top business reporters and anchors. Up until 2011, Yastine had been working for the PBS Nightly Business Report, a job he took in 1994. Yastine was around for some of the biggest stories of his time like the Panama Canal handover in 1999, he reported on Hurricane Katrina and its economic impacts and the Deep Water Horizon oil spill. As a business correspondent, Jeff has seen the highs and lows of the investment sector and met with different experts in that world. Steve Forbes, Warren Buffett, and Michael Dell are some of the heavyweights that Yastine has interviewed. Yastine has one Emmy nomination under his belt for a story he did in 2007 about America’s underfunded infrastructure. He also has a BA from the University of Florida in Telecommunications.
The Amazon Competition to Bank on
Yastine figures that in 2018, Amazon will face a lot of competition as most of its rivals will get creative in a bid to catch up. He believes that a lot of mergers and acquisitions will take place to come up with worthy competitors to the tech giant. Jeff sites E-bay as one of the online retailers that will be looking for a buyout partner, and one potential taker is Google as it hopes to expand its customer base with an internet store of its own. The Kroger Co. and W.W Graiger Inc. are other buyout prospects that Jeff thinks that investors should monitor.
M&As are the Future
For his 2018 investment advice, Jeff Yastine states that mergers and acquisitions will play a great role in driving the investment market. The stock investment expert used research from Deloitte to prove his point. From the study of 1,000 executives, two-thirds said that they intended to spend their cash reserves to buy M&As.
