The Good Morning Report

The latest market news, commentary and strategy by Adrian Rowney 


5 Things that Grabbed my Attention

1. Perfect...Silver, Copper, Nickel, Tin & Platinum miners should start behaving like the soup Nazi as well!

2. Bank of Poland cut interest rates by 0.75% to 6% despite inflation running @ 10%.

3. China has banned all government officials from using APPLE iPhones....I doubt the average Chinese person is going to feel too comfortable walking around with an iPhone now....Got to be brave buying APPLE shares on its massive current PE of 30 times....If Warren Buffet decides to take some profit then look out!

4. According to the World Gold Council, central banks continued to BUY GOLD in July with 55 tons added.

5. ETPMAG has failed to break through the mid $35 resistance level for maybe the 10th time...for those younger clients of ours, you should be breathing a sigh of relief as it allows more time to accumulate; buying SILVER is your way out of the rat race - everyone should be aiming to get to a minimum of $50K worth as this new economic era ,characterized by STAGFLATION, will be brutal (but a joy for those that are prepared!).

ASX Market Update

ASX 200 down 86 points to 7171

Our market copped a decent touch up...SuperCheap (SUL) was the worst performer in the top 200 after falling 7.5% - no real surprise seeing retailers roll over....BHP fell 5.18% -but it also went ex dividend of $1.25 fully franked and Qantas (QAN) dipped 2.28% as major shareholders start pushing back against the big fat cheque that the board is about to cut for the outgoing CEO.

"Listen closely Allan, we are getting you out late tonight from Richmond RAAF base. Chairman Goyder has already wired the $24mil to Cayman's account to tie you over for a while. I'm skipping town too.. the heat is on us my friend...the natives want blood".

Random Observation

Someone showed me this....Looks like the RBA should increase rates by 5% at the next meeting - CLOWN WORLD!!

The new owner of this place will also have to fork over about $477K in protection money to the mafia...

The Day Ahead

Asian Market Update

These Chinese property stocks are running hot.....Still miles off their highs though, as most were originally slammed by 70% to 90%.

Global Market Update

US Market

DOW up 57 points to 34,500

The DOW steadied overnight after a few days of selling, but the TECH heavy NASDAQ rolled over again....APPLE shares fell 2.9% as the CCP banned government officials from using iPhones.

'Sorry peasants if you can't afford insurance anymore - we have some huge losses we need to make up for with our disastrous bond portfolios!'

I've been receiving Tracy and Adrian's Good Morning Report for about 5 years now. Apart from it being my fav email to read each morning, it's given me good knowledge and tips leading to great investments. This proof in their expertise lead me to put my super with them 3 years ago and I'm pleased I did. Their easy going attitude and values align with me and they are a pleasure to deal with. Thanks Super Equity!

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.
