Wall Street Investment Visionary | Entertaining Finance Speaker
“If the majority of people were right, the majority of people would be rich!” So says Wall Street investment visionary Peter Ricchiuti, who teaches audiences why “follow the herd” mentality rarely delivers long-term success when it comes to the markets. Teaching people smart strategies for stock hunting, the importance of proper diversification, and the cyclical nature of both stocks and investment sectors, Ricchiuti’s talks are as informative as they are fun.
Ricchiuti teaches finance at Tulane University’s Freeman School of Business and is the founder of the Burkenroad Reports investment research program, where he leads a team of more than 180 of the university’s business students in search of the investment “skinny” on undervalued and overlooked stocks. Ricchiuti started his career with the investment firm of Kidder Peabody and later managed over three billion dollars as the assistant treasurer for the state of Louisiana.
In 2014, The Financial Times published Ricchiuti’s first book, Stocks Under Rocks, and he currently hosts a popular weekly business program called Out To Lunch on National Public Radio in New Orleans.
He served as a director of Amedisys, Inc., the nation’s largest home healthcare company, from 1997 to 2015. During this period, the stock rose by about 1000%.
