Equity Overview with Chuck Gibson: Why Dividends Matter – July 18

“I had an old-fashioned idea that dividends were a good thing.”
~James MacArthur

By Catherine Austin Fitts

This week on The Solari Report, I will be speaking with Chuck Gibson, managing member of Financial Perspectives and my partner at Sea Lane Advisory, LLC, for our 3rd Quarter Equity Report.

With the long term bull market in bonds coming to a close as we discussed in our April Equity Overview, we will turn to the importance of dividends and their historical importance as a source of investment income.  We will be joined by Chuck’s colleague Melanie Pelayo who will address tax issues for US taxpayers. Chuck has prepared a series of excellent charts which will be posted on the blog and in the transcript.

Our interview will post on the blog on Thursday afternoon. Thursday night join me live for Money & Markets. Do post your questions for Ask Catherine on the blog!

In Let’s Go to the Movies, I will review Waking Ned Devine. This delightful British comedy tells the story of a tiny Irish village after one of its 52 citizens wins the Irish National Lottery. Money and community – can they work together? Yes, you bet!


Talk to you Thursday!


  1. What percentage sure are we about a long term bull market in equities? 65% or more?
    I exoect a liquidity crunch could cause a short term equity correction down that could last for months or so.

    Any free safety ratings for on line brokers IRA account administration such as Fidelity and Schwab?


  2. Ask Catherine –

    In a recent Kingsworld News interview, Paul Craig Roberts posited the idea that the TPPA would support the dollar because it would bind several countries in to using the dollar for all international trade. This greatly supports your slow burn theory.
