What unlikely event or events could happen from now through the end of the year that would cause stocks to tumble? How would such events affect dividend stocks?
Those questions were raised – and answered – in a recent discussion with Stephen J. Cucchiaro, President and Chief Investment Officer of 3EDGE Asset Management, a Boston-based institutional and personal wealth manager.
An Early ETF Strategist
Before starting 3EDGE in January, long-time investment manager Cucchiaro was the founder of Windward Investment Management and one of the first so-called “ETF strategists,” who use low-cost exchange-traded funds to create portfolios based on strategies intended to capitalize on market and economic conditions. He sold the company to Charles Schwab in 2010, but stayed on to manage it. Cucchiaro, a member of the U.S. Olympic yacht racing team in the late 1970s, left Windhaven in 2014 and founded 3EDGE to continue using ETFs to build globally diversified, multi-asset portfolios.
