A major concern in the economy is preventing recession, but it looks as if we are already in one. I sit down and chat with Michael Pento, the President and Founder of Pento Portfolio Strategies, and he has been accurately predicting the Fed’s moves for quite some time. People are losing their jobs, home prices are about to tank, and we are experiencing the direct effects of a recession. Tune in for more insight from Michael.

-Michael Pento has been predicting the Fed’s moves very accurately

-A recession is two consecutive quarters of negative GDP growth
-The Fed is forced to hike into a recession because they have no other choice
-They keep raising and the dollar is going higher, which is killing manufacturing and exports
-If they want to get to neutral, they have to be restrictive
-They’re just now starting to flight inflation, but we’re already in a recession
-With a deflationary collapse in the economy, we would need cash
-Employment fell last month

If you don’t change the way you’re doing things, you may have to retire the idea of retirement. Thankfully, Randy Sevcik has great advice about how to better plan/manage your retirement. In order to plan for the future, it’s important to consider the psychology behind what has brought us to the current point in the economy. Randy helps clients build timelines by looking at each individual investment, and then creating a strategic plan for balancing income and growth as someone gets closer to retirement. Tune in for more insight.

-There has been madness in the markets; we knew this was coming, but it still has a large impact on us
-You have to look into the psychology of what has brought us to this point
-Roughly 10,000 citizens are retiring every day, and it will stay like this for the next 8-9 years
-For the first time, half of our population will be at or in retirement
-This isn’t going to be your typical recessionary or inflation period because the psychology behind it is different
-Most of the money in the market comes from people aged 55 and older
-Randy builds timelines by looking at every single investment someone is going to do. As you move closer to retirement, you have to become more conservative and be okay with missing out on potential growth
-Some people are going to panic and purchase things that they shouldn’t
-Look at market sectors based on what’s going on with the overall economy (i.e. energy)
-To get through the emotional part of it, it’s important to trust the math and map out your plan quantitatively
-It’s also crucial to balance income and growth
-The people fixing the problem must admit there’s a problem

Is the madness coming to an end, or is there more in store? More importantly, what does this mean for your wealth, portfolio, and retirement? I have Mark Singer on the show to talk about the current state of the markets, and why the mayhem is any different this time around. Markets go through cycles, and the way we perceive the fluctuations is influenced by personal perspective and how we time our own financial decisions. Tune in for more insight.

-The markets always go through cycles, so nothing has necessarily changed in that regard
-Bear markets happen every 3.5 years, so what has changed?
-For most, the current markets don’t have a true impact on their long term lives unless they are highly dependent upon portfolio income
-This time being different than last time in regard to the markets going down has to do with perspective
-The markets overreact on the upside and downside
-The real problem that people face in planning their retirement is timing
-The fixed income markets have been disastrous
-When consumer sentiment is at a low, markets rebound strongly
-The biggest mistake you can make right now is to overreact

Previously, we were seeing the potential for a new cycle in commodities with metal prices going up. 90 days later, the Federal Reserve is trying to fix what they created in the first place. Gold and stocks have somewhat of an inverse relationship, with worsening bear markets for stocks creating better conditions for gold stocks. With the lingering question of what the Fed is going to do, and where the markets are headed, there is a lot to cover. You don’t want to miss anything, so be sure to tune in to this episode.

-Everybody is wondering when/if the Fed is going to pivot
-Congress’ first order of business is to get re-elected
-If you’re leveraged or over-leveraged right now, it’s not a good feeling
-The worse the bear markets get in stocks, the better it is for gold stocks
-Gold price always bounces back and goes a lot lower than one would expect
-Values/fundamentals don’t mean anything—the only thing that matters is the cash and leverage you can acquire in these instances
-While everybody is selling, you’ll have cash and will be able to make rational decisions
-The Federal Reserve was initially there as a backup
-The goal of the Fed then shifted to keeping prices and employment stable. Finally, they decided they needed to keep stock prices going up permanently
-We may have had a bottom because two days ago there was a rally
-The stock market is ridiculously oversold and due for a bear market rally

Trillion Energy’s CEO Arthur Halleran joined us for a much-anticipated sponsor update. The company is fresh from a C$22.5 million massively oversubscribed offering and how has the cash to start spudding wells. Halleran recently visited Turkey to accelerate the project and expects the first wells to be spudded later this summer. 

A lot has happened in the past 18 months. Turkish natural gas prices have more than tripled to $21 mcf and the expectation is that they will go higher still in the months ahead. There’s no end in sight to the Ukraine war and Russia has drastically curtailed European gas sales. A cold winter could lead to dramatically higher prices and Trillion is poised to profit from it. The plan is to eventually have at least 17 producing wells. While the SASB field was a prodigious producer in the past, new technology and drilling methods should lead to record production for many years ahead. Best of all capex will be low as existing infrastructure replacement according to Halleran is over C$500 million.

The company’s Bulgarian project was on the backburner till recently due to the global pandemic. It has worked to Trillion’s advantage. The company now has optionality, it can use SASB cash flow to finance production, or it can bring on a production partner. The profit potential is clear with gas now trading at $22 per mcf and Russian induced shortages are prevalent. 

We’re still extremely bullish about Trillion and continue to hold shares.

Credit repair expert Paul Oster comes on FSN to talk about the importance of paying off your debt—especially in our current economy. Since stimulus checks are no longer being issued, it’s time to re-acclimate and formulate a plan for debt free living. As rates go up, it will take people more money and a longer period of time to pay off debt. Once you create a plan to get out of debt, you’ll wish you had started sooner. Tune in for more insight from Paul, and visit his website for credit repair resources and coaching.

-The stimulus has run out, and defaults on housing are going up
-Early on in a down-turn, we see 30-day lates with payments
-We have to give people a chance to re-acclimate to reality
-Consumers need to pay attention to their household budget
-Middle to lower income families are the ones who are going to get hit the hardest
-This is not a housing crisis at all—many factors have had a tremendous impact on all markets
-The demand in housing is so high that it is driving prices through the roof
-Most people in debt are not in a position to pay their current bills on time, and need to meet with a financial advisor
-If we’re going to get out of debt, where is the money coming from? It ultimately comes from cutting expenses

We were joined by Tier One Silver’s CEO/President Peter Dembicki and SVP of Exploration Christian Rios for a sponsor update. The company is resuming its exploration program as the Peruvian rainy season has ended. The Phase one results at the Curibaya project were quite impressive. CEO Dembicki observed that, “… the company is at the start of a major silver discovery.” The company hit bonanza and high-grade silver in a number of drill holes.

Exciting as these discoveries were, there’s every indication that a large copper porphyry deposit is lurking. To aid its efforts, the company brought in two world-class consultants to review the drill results and set the course for Phase two of the program. SVP Rios has laid out a strategy of doing more surface sampling to better develop future drill targets.


The company is also moving forward with its Hurricane Silver project and will be conducting geochemical and geophysical surveys at the Magdalena target area, where five mineralized vein corridors were identified with recent channel sampling results including 6 m of 239 g/t Ag, 1.21% Cu, 0.34% Pb, 0.15% Zn and 1 m of 605 g/t Ag, 0.26% Cu, 5.79% Pb, 0.21% Zn. A social access agreement was recently obtained here.

It’s hard to believe that Tier One was formed a little more than a year ago. The results to date have been impressive, but the company is picking up the pace and more positive news is expected. Fresh from a C$6 million capital raise, the company is well-funded. It’s noteworthy that even in the depressed junior sector, investors enthusiastically ponied up additional funds to advance the company.

With a world-class team and the proven ability to get the job done, Tier One’s future looks bright, and we’re among the company’s shareholders looking for a large return from our patience.

Energy prices have skyrocketed. Who is to blame, and are they going to improve? Jeff Petrash, a lifelong participant in the energy system, chats with me in this episode about natural gas and its centrality to today’s energy usage. Current natural gas prices are the product of multiple factors, including the pandemic and the war in Ukraine. This energy source must be understood from the perspective of supply and demand, and its infrastructure. Tune in for more expert insight.

-Natural gas has been doing nothing but going up, and is in the midst of a parabolic move—having a profound effect on the economy
-Natural gas has become more important to the economy over the past 20-30 years than petroleum
-Current natural gas prices are attributed to the war in Ukraine and the pandemic
-During the pandemic, demand for natural gas lowered, so production was decreased
-The demand has come back, but production cannot ramp up again quickly
-The economist will say that the cure to high prices is high prices
-We’re seeing double digit gas prices in Europe, and they’re going to want to cut back on their dependency on Russia as much as possible
-ESG bandwagon has tried to divert investments away from fossil fuels
-Does it make sense to build an infrastructure that won’t be needed in the next 40 years?
-We have a relatively basic industry, but it’s not fully understood

New York Times bestselling author Sam Liebman sits down and chats with me about real estate; specifically, the we discuss the valuation of office buildings, which is rapidly decreasing. This is largely attributed to the pandemic. Many tenants stopped paying rent, and Sam predicts that valuation of office buildings will soon be lower than mortgage. With less people going back to work, this sector of real estate is looking barren. Tune in for more information.

-Interest rates have gone through the roof
-The real problem is the technology regarding the effects on office buildings and retail
-You don’t have to live in the city to do business in the city anymore
-Manhattan office buildings are only 40% occupied—which is terrible for the valuation of real estate
-During the pandemic, tenants were not paying rent
-Soon, valuation will be lower than mortgage
-We are probably going to see an avalanche of foreclosures.
-Rents are going up, but so are operating expenses (i.e. insurance)
-Governance has fallen victim to politics
-Remote work is still very attractive to people considering employment options
-Florida wants to cap the amount you can increase rents to 15%
-If Florida doesn’t have an income tax, where is the money going to come from to build? It needs more infrastructure

-Non-qualified stock reflects a difference on your tax return
-It increases your ability to exercise incentive stock options for no tax at all
