The Good Morning Report

The latest market news, commentary and strategy by Adrian Rowney 

5 Things that Grabbed my Attention

1. Aussie inflation came in at a weaker than expected 6% thanks to discounted furniture, clothes and appliances...I haven't bought any of that stuff recently so my inflation rate is way higher...Market now pricing in a 29% chance of a rate hike next week - down from 54%.

2. My goodness me - US bank Wells Fargo is doing a whopping $30bn share buyback....They should be buying $30bn worth of GOLD to really secure the future instead.

3. TESLA sold another US$282 million in carbon credits that they created out of thin air last quarter....Elon is the absolute master of gaming the system.

Become environmental warrior with Tesla's new Save Planet Earth Truck (just don't research Elon's supply chain or anything about what he does!).

4. Years of outperformance of Industry Super is coming to a big fat end as APRA is forcing them to properly value massive portfolios of unlisted assets (think office towers, wind farms, solar, IT, venture capital etc)......Wall Street knows this, so is getting nicely prepared to take a big chunk of the $2 trillion pot.

5. China is ramping up imports of Aussie COAL....They are going to need our high quality stuff for DECADES to come....No need to overthink it friends - BUY YAL,WHC, NHC,CRN and SMR.

ASX Market Update

ASX 200 up 62 points to 7402

UK Billionaire Joe Lewis,  who is the major shareholder in Australian Agriculture (AAC) has been charged in the US with insider trading. Apparently he has been giving out red hot tips on a bunch of companies he is involved with to friends, family, lovers, personal assistants, deckhands and his pilots....Twiggy will be rubbing his hands together because I'm certain he wants to takeover AAC - maybe he will get his shot....Joe owns 50% of AAC while Twiggy has 18%.....AAC is a BUY last sale $1.46

What's the bet the normally sharp Joe, gets diagnosed with a serious case of dementia? Or perhaps he pulls a "Skasey"....

Random Observation

Super Asteroid with $10 Quintillion worth of METALS is a SUPER SCAM....

I believe the NASA/SpaceX mission to this super Asteroid full of metals is a complete HOAX that has been rolled out (started years ago) to scare people off buying PRECIOUS METALS....And the picture of the asteroid below, which is supposedly 420 million kilometers away, is CGI... so YES a complete fake....Pippa here is a former US Presidential advisor and thinks these metals will solve the climate crisis! (talk about a real whacko)

I can hear it now...but, but, but Adrian - NASA never lies!!!....Well before I believe anything they say - I would want to see this guys allegations be thoroughly investigated. Watch the vid below - maybe you might decide to scratch below the surface; there are literally armies of intelligent science geeks that dedicate their lives to exposing the fraud that is NASA/SPACE X and it is hilarious what some of them uncover.

And speaking of rocks - remember this doozey....LOL!!!

So please, sleep easy at night - there is not going to be $10 Quintillion worth of metals set to flood the market and obliterate the value of your portfolio. Anyone making those claims is a REAL Conspiracy Theorist.

So China has invested a squillion in renewables but COAL usage has gone up....Can someone get Blackout Bowen to explain what is going on?

Well this wasn't on my BINGO card for 2023: the DOW has now increased for the 13th consecutive session, something which hasn't happened since 1987!.....Jerome Powell also increased rates by 0.25% to take the FED FUNDS rate to 5.25% to 5.5%  which is a 22 year high.

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

My husband and I have had the privilege of receiving the guidance, services and support from Tracy for over 5 years. Having joined Super Equity has been one of the best financial decisions we have made to date. Tracy's extensive experience and knowledge has guided and helped us improve in our financial journey. 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.
