The Good Morning Report

The latest market news, commentary and strategy by Adrian Rowney 

5 Things that Grabbed my Attention

1. JUST IN....REGISTERED COMEX SILVER inventories just fell 10.3% to 27.6 million ounces - just US$626 mil worth of SILVER remains!!!....I'm getting a bit excited now....I truly think SILVER&PLATINUM will provide people with a way out of the rat race or to level up in this game of life we are all playing....If you have got any better ideas then I am all ears.

2. Aussie unemployment rate kicked up to 3.7%....24,200 lost full time jobs in July, 9600 gained part time work.....Is this the start of a nasty economic turn?

3. PAC Capital which manages about $400 million, has frozen redemptions from its managed funds....These are the same kind of things that I distinctly remember happening in the lead up to the GFC.

4. YanCoal announced it is paying a 37c dividend fully franked (ff). It goes EX on the 5th of September - meaning to be entitled to it, you need to own it by the 4th....YAL last paid 70c ff so for the year investors will end up receiving $1.07 which is about a 21% yield and becomes 29% grossed up for franking - this stock has been a great earner so far. BUY

5. Very disappointing seeing Core Lithium (CXO) come out with a $100 mil 40c capital raise as it was only a few weeks ago they were boasting to the market about having $152mil in the bank and no debt!....Management are obviously nervous about the lithium price and difficulties in executing their plans.... I put a BUY recommendation on the stock at $1.00 after falling from it's high of $1.86. Can't win them all....HOLD

ASX Market Update

ASX 200 down 49 points to 7146

Bit of a crappy day on the market with Core Lithium (CXO) having a shocker tanking 24% wasn't all bad - on the positive Inghams (ING) rallied 14% after posting a very strong set of results. BUY last sale $3.19

Despite prices going up, Aussies are still going to be eating plenty of chicken - if anything consumption will increase as steak and lamb become out of reach for families.

Random Observation

Uranium prices are destined to go higher....BUY URNM

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.

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.
