#145: Financial advisors sell stocks. Buy-and-hold stock investing doesn’t create wealth, but financial advisors create the illusion that they do.

Today’s guest, Ntellivest’s Brent Sutherland, is a financial advisor that began successfully investing in cash-flowing real estate with 8 single-family properties.

Brent pulls back the curtain on what’s going on “behind the scenes” with financial advisors and their biased “advice”.

Really...what’s wrong with stocks?

Keith adds content about how and why buy-and-hold stocks don’t create wealth with five reasons: inflation, emotion, taxes, fees, and volatility. This is partly due to secondary market dilution.
