The Good Morning Report

The latest market news, commentary and strategy by Adrian Rowney 

5 Things that Grabbed my Attention

1. AGL slashed its dividend and cut forward profit guidance....AVOID

2. Tanya Plibersek just killed Clive Palmer's planned 10 million ton per annum coking coal mine....This coal would have been sold to China in order to make the wind farms and EVs that Tanya tells us will save the planet!

3. Although not evident in yesterdays price action, Tanya's decision is great news for incumbent coking coal miners such as YAL, CRN and SMR....Tight supply = stronger for longer prices.

4. Anglo American Platinum (AMPLATS) has warned of lower PLATINUM production due to the severe energy crisis in South Africa....BUY ETPMPT - I predict this is going to be a HUGE winner for us one day....The existing PLATINUM shortage is probably the least talked about/known story in the markets today.

5. Disney is sacking 7000 workers....With all these mega corporates laying off a heap of staff, many are questioning how the US economy created 517K new jobs in January.

ASX Market Update

ASX 200 down 39 points to 7490

AGL shares fell 10% after issuing a pretty ordinary set of numbers and giving poor forward guidance....I wouldn't be surprised in the slightest to see AGL get nationalized one day - just like what has already happened to similar companies throughout Europe. AGL is loaded with debt and embarking on an environmentally destructive and economically unfeasible plan of rolling out solar/wind and battery storage while shutting down baseload power stations - 'GET WOKE, GO BROKE' seems to be their modus operandi.

My AVOID recommendation that I have had on AGL for quite sometime has been the right call - look at it's sick chart.

Random Observation

There was never going to be enough commodities to go around for this so called "Net ZERO" transition to start with and now we see governments banning mine approvals all over the place...Here is yet another one;

The Day Ahead

Results from NWS & REA

  • Our SPI is down 10 points
  • Bitcoin down 1.6% to $22,488

Movements affecting our resource stocks today (USD)

  • BHP in the US was up 0.41%
  • Gold down 0.55% to $1880
  • Paper Silver down 1.4% to $22.10
  • Copper down up 1.10% to $4.08
  • Brent Crude down 0.6% to $84.48
  • Iron ore up 2% to $123.80

Asian Market Update

Hong Kong rallied 1.6%, China up 1.18%, Japan was FLAT

Indian GDP per capita was just a measly US$2,256 in 2021; how could you not be happy to see them catch a lucky break with this cheap Russian OIL and other commodities?

Watch the below: this dude is not listening to any of the nonsense from the WEST.

Global Market Update

US Market

DOW down 185 points to 33,764 (one hour to go)

Tesla shares rallied another 5% as the SHORT SELLERS get smoked....What a stunning run this stock has had since the start of the year - now up around 100%.

European Markets

Germans up 0.72%, Brits added 0.33% and Frenchies put on 0.96%

Credit Suisse shares tanked 15% after reporting a $7.9bn loss for 2022; wealthy investors have also pulled $100bn out from under their management.

What a train wreck....I am very surprised this fallout hasn't caused a financial contagion....but it is yet another RED FLAG.

Tracy & Adrian's knowledge/experience with financial markets, greater global & domestic political/economic impacts & individual companies/stocks is not just unique & refreshing, but also gives great peace of mind. Having a team this capable taking care of your hard earned to help avoid knowable negative impacts, and/or take advantage of opportunities well ahead of time is like nothing I've experienced before. Could not recommend highly enough. Subscribe to Adrian's newsletter too if you want a no B.S. commentary that is unlike the sanitised drivel coming from mainstream financial reporting.

I highly recommend Super Equity to anyone needing assistance or guidance with their Super. Tracy was very thorough and clearly explained how Super works and why she made particular recommendations for us. Her (and the team's) customer service is outstanding with being very personalised, and we look forward to a long working relationship with them.

A huge thanks To Tracy And Adrian from Super Equity for sharing their knowledge on the recent Introduction To The Stock market Course I attended. The course was fabulous and gave a great insight on how the world operates from Share Markets, to Economic Cycles, World Currencies and great tips on how to look for opportunities on how and where to invest based on local news and world events along with overseas markets and indicators. Also thanks again Adrian for the Silver coin for 1st prize as part of the demo share market game we played over the duration of the course. Would thoroughly recommend the Stock Market course as well Tracy and Adrian's knowledge on our own investments. Cheers Charlie

No question is to silly, Tracy is always available for any query you have and gives us the time to explain our portfolio and investments. Receiving the daily morning reports has been helpful to understand and learn the market. We have always highly recommended and will not hesitate to recommend Tracy and team for any and all financial guidance. Thank you Tracy and look forward to your continual support.

Tracy has been an amazing teacher. I have gone from having no idea about what my super was doing and feeling really overwhelmed by the thought of all that it involved, to now being in control and understanding. Through super equity's I have a transparent, easy to understand managed fund. Tracy has even put me into contact with advisors specialised in life insurance and income protection. I cannot thank Tracy enough for empowering me and helping me organise all my affairs. If you need someone patient an knowledgeable to organise your super and investment portfolio, Tracy is the best!!

The service and support received from Super Equity has reached and surpassed all our expectations. Having previous experience with stock brokering firms over an 11 year period has highlighted to me how superior the service and support received from Tracy Askew at Super Equity is. For myself and for my clients. Tracy's in depth fundamental and technical knowledge in all areas of the market reduces many hours of my time in the research needed to be successful and profitable for myself and my clients.
