The Good Morning Report – 16th Feb

1. Japan has official entered a recession after posting back to back quarters of negative economic growth….You wouldn’t think by looking at it’s booming stock market.

2. From what I can gather – the CHINESE are currently buying and stockpiling GRAPHITE, LITHIUM, SILVER, PLATINUM, & PALLADIUM below average mining industry production costs.….Too Good Xi Man.

3. Former Suharto era military strongman, Prabowo Subianto has claimed victory to become Indonesia’s next President…..A great win for overseas Chinese businessmen operating in the country (I explain why in Asian Market Update).

4. Big time fund manager, Stanley Druckenmiller has sold some of his TECH holding and bought the world’s two biggest GOLD miners – Newmont and Barrick.

5. Nickel mining is basically OVER in Australia as BHP wrote down the value of its operations by US$3.5bn….It now values it’s WA Nickel @ negative US$300 million due to costs with closures and land rehabilitation.

ASX 200 up 58 to 7605

With the large pullback in the price of THERMAL COAL, Whitehaven (WHC) reported a first half (H1) Net Profit of $372 mil which was down 86%….Out of the 32c in earnings per share, the company will be paying just 7c of it as a dividend. WHC fell 5% on the news…..(Woke NSW Premier Chris Minns is going to go hunting for a fresh revenue source and I dare say it will come from property)

Here are two interesting slides from the presso…

Check out how important WHC is for these countries. WOW!!!

And have a close look at this…

WHC shares might not do much in the short term and could even fall further, but the longer term fundamentals are nothing short of sensational…..In the years to come we will see surging demand and falling supply! Maintain BUY

China must be just loving it as they look set to buy even more LITHIUM off Australia at below cost of production….Yes you got that right – Wesfarmers (WES) will be the latest miner paying for the privilege of selling them LITHIUM in the next few months.

From what I can gather – the CHINESE are currently buying and stockpiling GRAPHITE, LITHIUM, SILVER, PLATINUM, & PALLADIUM below industry production costs.

  • SPI is up 64 points
  • Bitcoin up 0.5% to $52,053
  • BHP in US down 0.24%
  • Newmont in US up 3.3%
  • RIO in London up 0.83%

Movements affecting our resource stocks today (USD)

  • Gold up 0.6% to $2016
  • Paper Silver up 2.6% to $22.97
  • Platinum up 1% to $906
  • Copper up 1.5% to $3.75
  • Brent Crude up 1.65% to $82.65

Japan down 0.89%, Hong Kong up 0.84%, China SHUT

Overseas Chinese operating in Indonesia will be the big winners with Prabowo Subianto becoming President…Former President Suharto used to promote Chinese businessman ahead of indigenous Indonesians as they could never turn into political opponents and are more than happy to grease the palms of the establishment. Prabowo will run the same model….As for Aussies trying to crack it in Indo….hahaha… GOOD LUCK…. the probability of failure remains extremely high – YOU WILL BE SCREWED AT EVERY TURN…I maintain my blanket AVOID on all ASX companies with a heavy exposure to the country.

Prabowo definitely softened his imagine while campaigning….but this dude is the real deal. NO ONE ever messes with him. Prabowo is untouchable…..I can’t imagine what he has seen and done over the years….. Goodness gracious me!

DOW up 348 points to 38,773

Tucker is crushing the Mainstream Media in the US and around the world for that matter as even his most basic stories are waking people up to what is really going on…..I have an AVOID on our gaslighting ASX media companies, SEVEN (SWM) and Nine (NEC) and if I could SHORT the ABC I would!

Germans up 0.6%, Brits added 0.38% and Frenchies put on 0.86%

UK officially entered a recession and with inflation running at 4% we now see nasty STAGFLATION…..Why is no one talking about STAGFLATION???….I think it is because STAGFLATION is a nightmare for bankers and history shows it is a bonanza for PRECIOUS METALS (their kryptonite).

I've been receiving Tracy and Adrian's Good Morning Report for about 5 years now. Apart from it being my fav email to read each morning, it's given me good knowledge and tips leading to great investments. This proof in their expertise lead me to put my super with them 3 years ago and I'm pleased I did. Their easy going attitude and values align with me and they are a pleasure to deal with. Thanks Super Equity!

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.

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

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.
