Ron Insana, who's been covering the stock market for more than three decades as a business journalist and money manager, sat down with CNBC's Mike Santoli to discuss how investors can generate long-term returns, some investing lessons from his career, and the upcoming presidential election.
"I don't think we've seen, and I've talked to people who are even, you know, considerably older than I am, who have not seen, a pairing like this, certainly in modern history," Insana said. "This is our first experience with something that is as odd and unpredictable as this election."
In this wide-ranging conversation, Insana, who's the host of "The Market Scoreboard Report," a daily show that airs on radio stations around the country and focuses on the stock market and the economy, shares his expertise on:
- How the stock market has evolved over the years.
- Market valuations.
- How investors can combat low returns.
- The outlook for interest rates.
- Investment lessons for every market participant.
