Risk-Taking and the New Generation

What I'm Thinking

Options involve risk and are not suitable for all investors. Please read Characteristics and Risks of Standardized Options before deciding to invest in options.

In this episode of What I'm Thinking, Tom Sosnoff and Tony Battista engage in conversation with Howard Tullman over the current "millennial" generation and their tolerance for risk. Tom kicks off the conversation by asking Howard, "Is this generation too risk-averse?"

Howard Tullman's answer to this question starts by noting that the rate of entrepreneurial ventures has diminished from it's peak in the 1970's, meaning that less businesses are being started. As it relates to the current generation, how can this be explained? Howard's answer begins with one of the biggest present issues: student loans. With so much debt coming out of college, graduates don't have the money to start a business, and instead have to take normal jobs in order to pay off their loans. Additionally, there is the healthcare benefit of taking a position at an established company.

Join along as Howard Tullman, Tom Sosnoff, and Tony Battista have an in-depth discussion of risk-taking among the current generation.
