The Good Morning Report

The latest market news, commentary and strategy by Adrian Rowney 

5 Things that Grabbed my Attention

1.  Moody's downgraded a bunch of banks in the US....stress is building.

2. Warren Buffet is now sitting on a cash pile of around US$150bn....That is becoming a serious war chest for the coming financial watch, banks will come begging for money from him in the future - just like in the GFC.

3. Apparently Invocare (IVC) has agreed to a lower takeover bid of $12.70 from TPG....IVC is still in a trading halt....Looks like the IVC top brass want to collect some big fat bonuses and sail off into the sunset after punting with company money (and losing big time) on stocks and bonds last year - what a nice reward for these circus clowns! 

4. Orange Juice futures have been on an incredible rally over the past few years (see random observation) with Costa Group (CGC) being Australia's largest citrus grower, it is no surprise that a US private equity firm is trying to buy them out for $3.50 per share - they should be told to BEAT IT at that low price..... CGC is a BUY LAST SALE $3.33 - it once traded around $8.00!

5. Newmont's giant SILVER mine in Mexico (world's largest by reserves) has now been shut for two months, yet the price of SILVER is down about 7% in that period....Does anyone have a legitimate explanation for that price action as deficits build due to record demand?

ASX Market Update

ASX 200 was FLAT @ 7311

Coronado (CRN) fell 11.5% after releasing its 6 month profit report. Once again, inflationary pressures were blamed on falling margins..... but.. I think shareholders selling out will regret their decision as the future looks pretty good. CRN also finished with a cash balance of A$295milion so it's balance sheet is in pristine condition.

CRN mentioned they are aiming to significantly increase production over the next two years to take advantage of what is likely to be a very buoyant market. BUY LAST SALE $1.455

Random Observation

Orange juice futures have been on a historic run...the short sellers keep getting bowled over!

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

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.
