Dot-Com Crash Repeat? Find Safe Returns in an Irrational Market
If you can’t shake tech bubble déjà vu, you’re not alone.
This year, investors ignored companies’ underlying revenue and bid up buzzy tech stocks to outrageously high valuations … just like they did in the late ‘90s.

In this week’s Your Money Matters, Ted and Clint Lee weigh the evidence … and tell you how to pick stocks in this wild market environment.

Watch today’s video to find out how to protect yourself and find safe gains.
