Today kicks off our big U.S. Thanksgiving holiday week of shows, and today we start it off right by sharing all of the good, bad, and ugly deals YOU can score this Black Friday. Regina Conway from Slickdeals.net joins us to help save your wallet and point out some of the issues not-careful shoppers may face. Where should you spend your hard-earned cash to get the most bang for your buck this holiday shopping season? Which retailers are offering the best deals on hot items? What deals aren’t worth the wait? What’s different this year because of COVID? Whatever your question is – Regina has you covered.
Plus, did Pfizer’s CEO break laws while insider trading his company’s stock when it exploded recently? Financial disclosures show that the CEO, Albert Bourla, sold almost $6 million in stock the same day the company’s vaccine news broke. After our discussion on what REALLY happened – we’ll turn our heads to yet another report of a criminal advisor fleecing his clients to the tune of $320,000. The short and sweet? Be beyond suspicious of any advisor who might promise you quick riches.
During the Haven Life Line, we take a question on peer-to-peer lending. We recommended LendingTree the last time we discussed P2P, but caller Greg says the company has since become a bank. He asks: what’s our take now? Are there any companies we recommend?
As always, Doug will give his own share of the airtime for his trivia. Today? He’s bringing it back with some old-school Black Friday trivia.

During our second headline we touched on the differences between equities and fixed income. While both types of investments have their place in your financial plan, they serve VERY different functions for your portfolio. You can read more on the differences below.

- Greg wrote in asking about if our opinions have changed on P2P (peer-to-peer) lending. Since we originally discussed P2P and recommanded LendingTree, the company has since became a bank. Greg asks: any advice on good P2P services?
