The Good Morning Report

The latest market news, commentary and strategy by Adrian Rowney 

5 Things that Grabbed my Attention

1. This is HISTORIC: 5 new countries have been accepted into the BRICS which means the trading bloc will account for 80% of the world's OIL production....The WEST is in complete denial of the significance of what just transpired.

2. ETPMAG has once again traded up to the big resistance level on the chart...One of these days it is going to bust through and not look back. BUY

3. Second tier Aussie lender Judo Capital Holdings (JDO) fell 19% to hit a fresh all time low....There is no need to be in financials.

4. Corelogic is reporting around a 20% increase in supply of new homes hitting the market in Sydney and Melbourne....Will cashed up migrants be enough to support the property market or are we headed for a decent pullback?

5. Whitehaven (WHC) announced a NPAT of $2.7bn and 42c fully franked dividend (Ex on 31st Aug)....The stock dipped 5% as they are suspending its share buyback to perhaps make a play for BHP's coking coal assets.....BUY

ASX Market Update

ASX 200 up 33 points to 7182

Costa Group (CGC) shares fell 10% after announcing they are going to take a $30mil hit due to a deterioration in the outlook for their later season citrus crop and a softening of demand for tomatoes....I am a bit suss on the update. They gave us no details about what is happening on the citrus farms and then expect us to believe that Aussies have eased up on eating tomatoes. Seriously???? And it was only recently they were telling us what an amazing growing season they were having....

I think management are stitching up shareholders by talking things down, which in turn will make it much easier for the Wall Street private equity firm to come in and mop up CGC on the cheap...The pullback has created a good short term trading opportunity. BUY

Random Observation

These long dated bonds were always going to tank...I bet the bankers that put deals like this together then went short after offloading them to suckers.

The Day Ahead

  • Our SPI is down 69 points
  • Bitcoin up 2.7% to $26,545

Movements affecting our resource stocks today (USD)

  • BHP in the US down 2.8%
  • Newmont down 0.33%
  • Gold down 0.17% to $1944
  • Paper Silver down 0.93% to $24.16
  • Platinum up 0.3% to $941
  • Copper down 1% to $3.76
  • Brent Crude FLAT @ $83.12
  • Iron ore down 1.1% to $109.90

Asian Market Update

Japan up 0.87%, China up 0.12% and Hong Kong rallied 2%

Most analysts are completely baffled by the recent strong gains in COKING COAL and IRON ORE  (key ingredients to make steel)....but it has got me thinking....perhaps the strength is due to Xi Man ordering his steel makers to crank things up to supply a 5 fold increase in military spending - I'm talking extra ships, tanks, subs, weapons, fighter jets and military bases; all this stuff is commodity intensive....pure speculation on my behalf, but it would be a way to give the economy a TRILLION dollar boost and get the unemployed youth off the video games and into jobs.

Global Market Update

US Market

DOW down 373 points to 34,009

Discount retailer Dollar Tree fell 12% after the CEO downgraded future sales expectations and painted a bit of an ugly picture for the US economy.....RED FLAGS are popping up all over the joint.

European Markets

Brits up 0.18%, Germans off 0.68% and Frenchies off 0.44%

I predicted this would happen quit a while ago - now it isn't because I hold some kind of special intellectual powers, it was because I looked back into history and found out who gets hit the hardest with high inflation....I promise you that Central Bankers knew this was coming when they digitally printed obscene amounts of money - they are just playing dumb.

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

Tracy has been a pleasure to deal with. Found her very approachable and patient. She is very knowledgeable in super funds and I would highly recommend her to anyone who needs more education on how to make their super work for them.

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.
