May Portfolio Update

Priorities at smaller oil and gas companies have shifted dramatically from “grow production at all costs” to “live within our means, don’t borrow, and hike stock buybacks and dividends.” The result is energy stocks are likely to keep outperforming most other sectors. Also, investors will recognize that gold is a better store of long-term value than U.S. dollar bank deposits earning below-inflation rates of interest. This will be good for our gold/energy weighted portfolio. For now, Dan gives guidance on all the open positions, including a decrease in one position’s buy limit price.

Houston, We Have An Inflation Problem

For the April intelligence briefing, Jim gives a critical briefing on the type of inflation we are currently experiencing and what the Fed is now doing to combat record high prices for commodities and everyday items you purchase. He details why investing in the right assets is critical in this inflationary period and gives his forecast for a recession hitting our economy in the coming weeks. A Q&A session will be conducted on this call as well.
