The Good Morning Report – 8th Feb

1. The regional banking crisis in the US along with the meltdown in commercial property is not being considered as a systemic risk at all….It would seem investors just assume the FED will step in and crank up the digital money printer to make it all better…. Incredible!

2. Despite the big 33% pullback in AGL (AGL) I am maintaining my AVOID….Investing in a company with brainwashed, climate change retards on the board is not something I can recommend.

3. Santos (STO) and Woodside (WDS) have officially ended takeover talks….Doesn’t change my view – both are BUYs.

4. FORD is predicting its EV division will lose $5.5bn in 2024….Market was over the moon with that – the stock went up 6%!

5. Macdonald’s CEO has said low income earners (sub $45K) in America have largely stopped eating the stuff. A Big Mac Meal has now hit US$18 (A$27.69) in many locations across the country….So Maccas is now just for the Hoity-Toity….Hahahaha didn’t have that on my bingo card!

ASX 200 up 36 points to 7617

Coles (COL) said it’s profit has been largely stable over the past 5 years as it defended itself in a Senate inquiry into gouging by supermarkets. If COL had been gouging then surely the stock price would been booming, but in reality it has done absolutely bugger all – chart below.

I’d be the first one to call out COL if they were up to no good, but pointing the finger at them is complete nonsense….It was the government that released the inflation genie out of the bottle when the RBA printed $300bn out of thin air and our corrupt, tyrannical politicians went on the mother of all spending binges after the WHO changed the name of the FLU to COVID. All a big fat scam – the greatest wealth heist in all of human history….How anyone can trust the government/MSM again has got me buggered.

I maintain my BUY on COL. It looks like a good defensive play and is sitting at the low end of it’s trading range. COL closed up 6c to $16.01.

Poor old Tian must’ve thought he was a Wall Street banker where insider trading is par for the course….

  • SPI is down 4 points
  • Bitcoin up 1% to $43,531
  • BHP in US up 0.1%
  • Newmont in US up 0.15%
  • RIO in London was FLAT

Movements affecting our resource stocks today (USD)

  • Gold FLAT @ $2051
  • Paper Silver down 0.79% to $22.30
  • Platinum down 2.5% to $888 (see below)
  • Copper down 1.15% to $3.73
  • Brent Crude up 0.73% to $79.17
  • Iron ore FLAT @ $125

Hey – we need all the help we can get with PLATINUM. Let’s GO!!!

Hong Kong down 0.34%, China up 1.44% and Japan down 0.11%

I believe the closure of the RED SEA shipping channel is going to trigger some nasty and prolonged STAGFLATION….Kind of surprised that it is treated like a nothing burger by the markets….Europe once again will be the biggest loser in all of this…..Biden has thrown the EU under the bus. It’s purely ORWELLIAN that people can’t see it.

DOW up 156 to 38677

Money continues to pour into the US Tech Titans which drove indexes higher…Nvidia put on 2%, Meta added 2.9% and Microsoft increased 1.8%

Germans down 0.66%, Brits off 0.68% and Frenchies dipped 0.36%
Telcos and miners dragged European markets lower overnight. Norwegian Oil and Gas giant – Equinor fell 7% after announcing it will cut dividends to shareholders due to weaker energy prices.

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

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.
