Video Alert: How Fedspeak Continues To Influence Markets And Your Portfolio

Nomi continues her travels around Colombia monitoring economic activity and central bank policy. The Fed continues to walk the tightrope with their language about dark money in the financial system. Markets focus on small word changes in Fed announcements and this week’s FOMC meeting was no exception. Watch Nomi’s video here for more analysis.

Dark Money Millionaires Portfolio Update for June 17

From a dark money perspective, we didn’t find this week’s FOMC meeting to be particularly earth-shattering. The meeting came and went with zero change in prevailing interest rate or bond-purchasing (QE) policy. What we did find interesting is the bi-partisan consensus of the need for infrastructure funding that is happening in Washington. That bodes well for planning, movement and new contracts in the engineering, building and energy space. For now, please continue reading as Dan gives guidance on the open positions in the portfolio, including one position moving from buy status to a hold.

Portfolio Update for June 16

Looking ahead, the annual restructuring of the small-cap Russell 2000 index concludes on June 26th. The announcement of the results is a major event for small-cap companies and we watch for movement in this index to reflect where asset managers that use it as a benchmark could rebalance their positions and present opportunities for us in the process. For now, Dan gives guidance on all the open positions in the portfolio, including moving one position from a buy status to a hold.

The Open Road To A New Infrastructure Deal

The U.S. needs to upgrade and build its infrastructure in order to compete with the outside world, especially with China. That’s something on which both parties agree. They also concur that our history has shown us that solid infrastructure can bring good jobs and economic benefits. Whether a full package is agreed upon, or infrastructure investments is given a sequence of greenlights through individual bills, we remain confident that the future of America is a wide-open road. Read Nomi’s commentary for her thoughts.

Dark Money Buy: Double Your Money With This Top Value In Infrastructure

America’s infrastructure needs attention and estimates reach upwards of $7 trillion for the total bill. The cost won’t get any cheaper as the list grows or materials get more expensive, so Congress reaching agreement on funding infrastructure soon makes economic sense. Using our Dark Money Monitor, Nomi and Dan have targeted this leading engineering and construction company as dark money has found its way into the share prices of firms positioned to profit from coming infrastructure contracts.
