The Good Morning Report

The latest market news, commentary and strategy by Adrian Rowney 

5 Things that Grabbed my Attention

1. The STAR GROUP (SGR) announced a massive $800 million rights issue @$1.20  to fix its busted up balance sheet....AFR is reporting that pubs/pokies tycoon - Bruce Mathieson bought 4% of the company last week and will be a major player in the raising.

2.  The Bill & Melinda Gates Foundation just bought US$902 mil worth of Heineken shares....A foundation supposedly based around saving humanity is buying an alcohol company - c'mon - surely you are a bit suss as well? If Bill's AI takes over the bottling - then I ain't drinking it!!

3. Apart from Newcrest, GOLD miners have been getting thumped on this small movement down in GOLD bullion....frustrating sector at the moment.

4.  AP Eagers (APE) come out with an extremely bullish outlook for new car demand in Australia......Clear indication that we have an economy that is out of whack;  those with assets and debt levels under control are thriving, while at the other end - inflation is hurting people so hard they are forced to cut back on how much they spend at places like Dominoes Pizza (DMP)....History shows over and over again, that rampant inflation benefits a minority but crushes the majority.

5. RBNZ increased interest rates by 0.5% to 4.75%....Average variable home loan in NZ is now around 8%. Double digits on the horizon.

ASX Market Update

ASX 200 down 29 points to 7285

I must admit, the extremely BULLISH report from car dealing giant, AP EAGERS (APE) took me by surprise. I was expecting to see some cracks with rising interest rates and falling property prices putting the squeeze on...but no...cashed up Aussies are still queueing up for new cars. APE are also very confident that it is all smooth sailing from here on; the stock closed 9% higher to $13.00.

I'm a bit cautious on APE as things can abruptly take a turn for the worse - those that went through the GFC will probably understand my sentiment better....If I'm wrong then so be it - can't win them all!

Random Observation

Economists, politicians, fake news etc ...all blamed VLAD for the huge surge in GAS and FERTILIZER prices. Notice how none are thanking him for the falls?

In my view this WON'T be the new normal. We are in the crazy era where price stability has become a fantasy.

The Day Ahead

Asian Market Update

Global Market Update

French hotels giant Accor (which bought Australia's Mantra a few years ago) posted a 543 million Euro operating profit as travelers piled back into to overpriced rooms. The CEO said that even with rising inflation people are still spending up big....Accor shares put on 2%.

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

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.
