After 15 years as an analyst at top financial institutions, Dan Victor stepped out on his own in 2018 as an independent investor and market strategist. The result is his increasingly popular Seeking Alpha handle, BOOX Research, where he combines a data-driven, fundamentals-first approach to offer nearly daily stock and ETF ideas, as well as his Seeking Alpha Marketplace service, Conviction Dossier. In today's podcast, we stress test three of his' top ETF picks for 2021: Emerging Markets (IEMG), shorting the long-end of the Treasury yield curve (TBF) and international dividend growth (VIGI).
