The Good Morning Report

The latest market news, commentary and strategy by Adrian Rowney 

5 Things that Grabbed my Attention

1. In this weeks picture the BEAR is standing on Uranium  (u308) or colloquially known as YELLOW CAKE; a mega shortage of this stuff is going to hit in the next few years. URNM is my preferred play. 

2. Lending by Chinese banks has perked right up. I wouldn't be surprised to start seeing some very strong economic data coming through.

3. On the COMEX there is currently 135K OPEN INTEREST FUTURES CONTRACTS over SILVER or the equivalent of 675 million ounces of SILVER....while there is just 32 million ounces of REGISTERED SILVER in the COMEX vaults.....The short position in SILVER is off the charts  and is the only reason why we get to BUY SILVER on the CHEAP.

4. The Julcani SILVER mine in PERU was forced to shut after protesters broke in a destroyed some of its facilities....SILVER supply from PERU is going to be way down this year....The CLOCK is ticking on the giant SILVER COMEX SHORTS - we just have to be PATIENT!

5. CHINA announced it bought another 15 tons of GOLD in January....Do you honestly think the Xi Man is going to be wrong??

ASX Market Update

ASX 200 up 26 points to 7530

Boral (BLD) was the top performer with an 11% gain after posting results and an outlook that the market liked. With a decent rally over the past few months I am downgrading BLD to a HOLD from a BUY as its valuation is getting up there - we are now looking at a forward PE of well over 20 times earnings, plus management are not paying a dividend this half.

It's a solid company but rather expensive at the moment.

Random Observation

Another RED FLAG???

I learn something new everyday -  I actually had no idea the savings rates through the 70's and early 80's was that high, which would indicate that many Americans must have breezed through those nasty economic conditions back then....With the savings rate now plunging, the situation is looking very grim for the current generation.

The Day Ahead

Results from AGL, MGR, ARF,CLW & MP1

  • Our SPI is down 25 points
  • Bitcoin down 1.38% to $22,856

Movements affecting our resource stocks today (USD)

  • BHP in the US was FLAT
  • Gold up 0.25% to $1889
  • Paper Silver up 0.92% to $22.38
  • Copper down up 0.72% to $4.05
  • Brent Crude up 1.68% to $85.10
  • Iron ore up 0.5% to $121.55

Asian Market Update

China down 0.49%, Hong Kong FLAT, Japan down 0.29%

Hong Kong is CHINA now - nothing major happens without Xi Man's backing.

China is Aramco's largest customer so I would expect this monster deal will get done....OIL trades are also likely to be done in YUAN, thus bypassing the USD.

This deal will also highlight a weakening of Wall Street and Washington on the GLOBAL stage.

Global Market Update

US Market

DOW down 207 points to 33,949

Alphabet (Google parent) fell around 7% on fears that Microsoft's new AI search engine will see it take market share. They have programmed the AI to be ultra woke so the results and info spat back can be absurd. I guess it is all part of the ongoing brainwashing.

European Markets

Brits up 0.26%, Germans added 0.6%, Frenchies dipped 0.18%

BP shares hit a 52 week high as it rallied a second day post its record breaking profit of $27bn for 2022. This is the most money BP has made since it cleared $26bn in 2006....The UK oil giant plans on increasing it's share buyback and will also pump money into renewables (which perversely requires an obscene amount of hydrocarbons to make in the first place - we have ourselves a CLOWN WORLD of TRUELY EPIC PROPORTIONS!)

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

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.
