The Good Morning Report

The latest market news, commentary and strategy by Adrian Rowney 

5 Things that Grabbed my Attention

1. NZ government's recent bond issues have been coming up short as institutions balk at funding the country...I am keeping an eye on it - but the situation could get ugly in the coming months....Jacinda Ardern was a complete and utter disaster, now we are witnessing the fallout.

2. BHP is finally calling out the nickel futures scam on the LME saying prices do not represent the physical market....My two preferred nickel miners are PAN and MCR.

3. One of the world's largest copper mines located in Panama is halting operations due to a dispute with the government....copper market is so tight. BUY WIRE - the global copper miners ETF.

4. Dominoes shares tanked 24% after management said they are struggling due to inflation....If DMP are feeling the pressure, then imagine how bad it is going to get for the entire food industry and economy as a whole. BIG RED FLAG.

5. Bank of Japan announced more EMERGENCY bond buying;....It's only a matter of time till we see a full blown currency crisis and this one will be an absolute rip snorter - decades in the making!

ASX Market Update

ASX 200 down 21 points to 7314

Dominoes (DMP) got smashed by 24% as earnings came in much lower than expected. Management said their regular customers had been reducing orders and the company is struggling with inflationary pressures. Overall I am surprised by the numbers as I thought sales would rise as inflation should translate to more people looking for the cheaper alternative like DMP (this still could play out in the future - let's see)....I recommended DMP last quarter and it quickly took off, so it is a bummer to see all those gains wiped off in one session. I will maintain my BUY rating, but am mindful that we could see the stock drift lower in the short term.

Dr Phil of the RBA and the global cabal of central bankers were lying from day one when they all said (in lockstep) that inflation was going to be 'temporary' or 'transitory'....How does anyone even take these clowns seriously?

Random Observation

Hey BHP - don't stop with nickel; as I've been saying for years - the entire LME is a SCAM and so is the COMEX....Silver, Platinum, Copper, Lead, Zinc & Aluminum FUTURES also don't represent the physical market.

Stuff like this happens; late last year for example I lost my favourite hat - spewing!!....And remember when Donald Rumsfeld said the Pentagon lost $2.3 TRILLION - then the very next day SEPT 11 happened?...Message is - we all misplace stuff, no one is perfect!!

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.
