14 Nov The Tom Dupree Show, Saturday, November 11, 2017
On Saturday, November 11, the Tom Dupree Show covered a variety of topics. From 7-8 am, Phillip Sexton and Kristy Maggard discussed how infrastructure spending could decrease traffic congestion, help increase work productivity, and save money for the average U.S. driver. They then discussed how lower unemployment rates have also contributed to increased traffic woes along with companies like Uber who are putting more cars on the road. Phillip gave a brief update on the automotive industry and discussed how automotive sales, especially Toyota’s, had been impacted by the recent hurricanes. Kristy was surprised to learn that Toyota’s Rav4 was currently the “best selling” car (without a truck bed) in the U.S.
In the beginning of the third hour, from 8-9 am, Phillip and Kristy talked about how people can create “income” during retirement by diversifying their portfolio and making sure to include equities that pay a dividend. They speculated on General Electric’s (GE) pending announcement for Monday regarding its future and whether GE planned to continue to pay a dividend.
In the final half hour, Phillip and Kristy talked about the changing trend in home ownership with millennials now buying homes. Their move from apartment complexes to single family homes worries investors who had built properties in anticipation of longer term tennants. They also briefly touched on Amazon’s announcement that some Whole Food locations would become smaller hubs for Amazon products.
