Jeff Yastine has worked at Banyan Hill Publishing as the editorial director since 2015. Currently, he is the editor of Total Wealth Insider. He has over 20 years experience as an investor in the stock market as well as being a financial journalist.
Every week, he writes articles for Banyan Hill’s Sovereign Investor Daily and Winning Investor Daily. Through his work, he has helped investors understand and make profits from the existing opportunities in the market. Many investors now have a good understanding about important business, economic, and monetary developments.
Major Events He Has Reported About
At the beginning of the millennia, he foresaw the mid-2000s real estate crisis and the dot-com bubble and warned investors. In 2010, he reported the Deepwater Horizon oil spill. In 2005, he analyzed and reported about the financial and economic implications of Hurricane Katrina. He also reported the Panama Canal handover of 1999. Between 1994 and 2003, he made two visits to Cuba to report how foreign investors affected the economy of that country.
Recently, he has been providing advice on investing in cyber security stocks. He shows how actions taken by New York Department of Financial Services and other institutions in Europe and beyond have positively impacted the price of shares of these firms. He also advises investors on how they can benefit from hack attacks. In addition, he has written articles on why food prices are like to increase and how investors can benefit from it.
The Impact of Reporting on His Career
Through reporting, Yastine has learned to identify business opportunities. He can quickly identify a business opening in not only small-cap growth stocks but also in large company turnarounds. Furthermore, his coverage in other sectors such as agriculture, retail, and biopharmaceutical sectors has helped him become a very reliable advisor to his fans.
While working as an anchor at PBS Nightly Business Report between 1994 and 2010, he got a chance to interact with prominent investors of the time among them Warren Buffett and Sir Richard Branson. The interaction provided an opportunity to learn about the investment secrets. He has been using this knowledge since then to provide relevant advice to investors.

Yastine wrote an article about the underfunding of crucial public infrastructure in America and secured a nomination in the 2007 Business Emmy Award. Another 30-minute special report on America’s bond market saw him win the New York State Society of Certified Public Accounts’ Excellent in Financial Journalism Award in 2002.
