How do we survive the carnage in the markets? Alejandro Szita urges us to turn to real estate, which behaves differently than many other investments and has potentially promising outcomes in our tumultuous economy.

Markets are still down after a turbulent Monday, which leaves us with a lot of questions. Is the Fed going to do what they say, or will they be forced to back off?

David emphasizes the importance of investment strategy amidst economic uncertainties, so be sure to listen to this episode for some valuable perspective.

-Inflation is at forty year record highs
-The Fed now has to raise rates even more
-Our economy is strongly based upon the housing market; housing is a lagging indicator of our economy’s direction

In consideration of the markets getting slaughtered, where is the best place to put your money? Toni Patillo comes on the show to talk about the real estate market, as the primary constant in today’s economy is real property. In order to be successful in real estate, however, it’s crucial to understand where you’re investing, and where this particular area within the market is headed. Tune in for more insight.

-There is a discrepancy about where true wealth comes from; is there a way to reconcile the two sides?
=There are always fluctuations in the market, and the one constant is real property
-In light of the record gains we’ve seen in real estate prices over the last three years, there have been unsustainable high prices and increasing rents/mortgages. The real estate sector is bound for carnage
-If you’re just getting into real estate investing, do you stay the course?
-Many people are waiting for prices to come down, but it doesn’t look like this will happen any time soon
-It’s all about location, or where you’re investing, and how much equity you have in the property

The dollar isn’t doing too well under our democratic presidency. With that in mind, it’s important to think about inflation and how this dictates the future of many commodities. Here to talk about this is Eric Hadik from INSIIDE Track Trading, and he provides a technical analysis of commodities—specifically in regard to how they will pan out later this year. Tune in to hear why commodity price inflation will most likely have a significant top in Q3, and other predictions that will help prepare you for what’s to come.

-Over 2 years ago, it was said that the dollar does better when democrats are in office, but the case seems to be different today
-A governing Republican philosophy is that a lower dollar is better (increases exports)
-During the Reagan administration, a strong dollar hurt some of the American economy
-Eric’s predictions in 2016 about a top in the dollar led him to believe that a republican was going to be in office
-From a commodity price inflation perspective (i.e. grains, key commodies) commodities are probably going to have a significant top in the September/October 2022 time frame, or in the cusp of Q3/Q4
-A high, however, doesn’t necessarily consist of one uninterrupted up-trend
-The middle half of June will most likely be the next peak; energy markets will set a peak in the next 10 days, and Eric expects prices to come down
-Precious metals are entering what should be their most advantageous period
-There are isolated commodities that could still see higher levels further down the line
-Discuss two major upside price objectives for natural gas
-Natural gas could go substantially higher before it finds its level

The markets have no place to go but down, and in response, everyone is piling out. How low are the markets, and how low is low enough? Chris Vermeulen comes on the show to put this concept into perspective. The current panic and uncertainty within the markets cause people to move to currency, which is one of the most effective ways to protect capital in these conditions. Tune in for more insight about where the markets are headed, and strategies to consider for the conceivable future.

-It’s a bloodbath today across the markets, and we haven’t seen this panic since 2021
-The problem with panic is that everything goes down (i.e. commodities, precious metals)
-Even if people don’t want to sell their positions, they have to
-When people are nervous, they move to currency
-We could still continue to see a pretty big drop and more volatility; there is still a lot of downside
-Chris predicts that we’re entering a multi-year bear market in equities
-Protecting capital and moving to cash is one of the best things you can do
-As price goes down, liquidity goes down; gold is getting slaughtered and silver is down $1 today
-We’re seeing signs of even lower prices to come
-You can avoid the bear market by moving cash and can take advantage of some of these opportunities
-We’re coming into a time where big money is made on advances and declines
-The commodity super cycle could be in effect for the next 3-5 years
-Expect to see a couple of large hedge funds bite the dust
-No one should be holding assets that are falling, and it comes down to managing positions and risks

In our latest report, we outline the main reasons why electricity prices will double in the next 18 months. We also explain how you can lessen or mitigate these affects by using the futures markets to cushion the blow and offset higher costs. Anyone can do it, whether you're buying options, futures or just resource stocks, like oil and gas producers. It's what the big companies have been doing for years. How come Southwest Airlines' profits never seem to get hit by higher jet fuel prices? Simple, it's because they buy their fuel in the forward market when they're trading cheaply. You can do the same. Always have a plan in place for when the government messes up, which they do all the time.

There are numerous negative trends surfacing in the economy, so I sit down with John Rubino to discuss some of the greater issues that need to be addressed, and have yet to be solved by the government. Some of the most pressing problems at the moment lie in energy; we are tight on resources and, as a result, other industries (such as agriculture) are suffering. In this episode we cover resources, public policy, and crises taking place around the country—all of which necessitate awareness and a plan for improvement.

-There are lots of interesting trends taking place
-Stocks are calmer now in terms of headlines, but there is a lot happening under the surface—especially in energy
-Natural gas is through the roof and went up almost 10% in one day
-We’re somewhat tight in energy
-The destruction of our food processing plants continues
-10% of what we ascribe to supply chain difficulties is actually normal
-The last shortage of anything was with oil in the 70s
-Biden is raising the amount of ethanol in attempts lower gasoline prices, but this takes corn off the market
-We use natgas for a lot more things than we used to
-Public policy doesn’t seem to be addressing today’s problems
-We discuss the need for change in law and order
-Big policy is corrupting great cities
-We need a program that addresses the mental health crisis in the country

Derek Bullen’s In Defence of Wealth emphasizes the implications of an economy without wealthy individuals. In the absence of kingdoms, becoming rich in America is a more equal opportunity game, yielding a new list of wealthiest people with every generation. Modern wealth extends beyond merely inheriting money, and greatly contributes to the functioning of the economy; truthfully, societies would not be the same without it. Tune in for more insight.

-‘Rich’ is a fleeting concept; 70% of the billionaires and 80% of the millionaires in America today made their money from scratch, within their own lifetime
-Every generation has a new list of wealthy people, or a new set. It is difficult to inherit this wealth
-Certain businesses that were promising for a long time still have the potential to fail (i.e. Blockbuster)
-In order to generate wealth, you have to create something that has a purpose and will not be easily surpassed/replaced
-Many people have left the energy sector
-We need to ask why we’re still buying oil products from countries that enact major human rights violations
-We’re using resources for fuel rather than food/agriculture
-Capitalism helps to bring people out of poverty; free trade allows for money to move more freely

We sat down with Fury Gold Mines’ Chairman Ivan Bebek and CEO Tim Clark for a sponsor update. Fresh from the recent C$11 million marquee investor financing and the Dolly Varden Silver transaction, they were both extremely positive about Fury’s future. Chair Bebek is redefining his role at Fury, leaving the board to become a strategic advisor, so he can devote his expertise to several other companies he helped found. CEO Clark has firmly taken control of the reigns and has big plans for the future.

While assay lab results are due in any day, the drills are about to start turning again. Four holes are planned for Eau Claire’s Eastern Extension and three to four holes for the Western Side Hinge. Additional holes will be drilled once more is learned about the sites’ geology. The Percival project, located 14 kilometers to the east, has also been targeted for drilling. Clark believes that there’s great promise here, which was missed by an earlier historic drill program.

But perhaps the most compelling case for Fury is its relative undervaluation when compared to its peers. Fury trades at just $29 per ounce in the ground, versus $72 per ounce for similar companies (according to Beacon Securities). At a $105 million market cap, comprised of $56 million in Dolly Varden shares and a large cash position, Fury’s enterprise value is a shockingly low $35 million, making it a true value play. CEO Clark bought shares in the spring and is looking to acquire more.

While being a resource investor the past 18 months has been painful, supply shocks are coming and that will be a major driver to the sector, which is why we patiently hold our shares.

-He sees a world that is dramatically better when a big platform (such as Twitter) realizes its full potential
-Whether or not he has the means to elevate Twitter in this way is still in question
-A board position is glamorous when all is well, but it is a very serious and demanding position
-Musk is seeking to change Twitter’s advertising
-Twitter will most likely become a mega, unified platform

Inflation is alive, well, and prospering; how do we effectively engage with these economical conditions? Phil Streible comes on the show to talk about how we can invest in inflation with commodity prices. In order to accurately gauge where the markets are going, it’s crucial to observe which commodities were affected by the pandemic, and how they will either bounce back or further deteriorate as a result of inflation and supply/demand. Tune in for more expert insight.

-The inflationary spiral is coming upon us sooner rather than later
-By any measure, inflation is alive and prospering
-There is a way for you to invest in inflation, and this is through commodity prices
-Food and energy specifically hit consumers with the rise of inflation
-The last time natgas was this high, we were in entirely different conditions with the strike of a major hurricane
-The government may not encourage production, but will rather step out of the way so that things can get done
-We’re seeing huge production increases out of Canada
-Eventually politics will yield to reality
-Natural gas is far more important to the economy than it was back in the 70s with the oil embargo
-The inflation problem cannot be solved by raising rates; when it comes to food production and livestock, there are other factors that impact these things
-EVs are not an escape from power problems
-Copper is still trading 10-15% under all-time highs
-The takeaway on copper and oil is that the pandemic came with the all-time low of copper, and has not been the same. It’s important to look at what commodities were affected by the pandemic
-Demand will continue to increase and supply will decrease; mining costs are high
-The higher commodity prices go, the more pain they inflict on the consumer

Markets have been extremely volatile, and pressing questions about the future of the economy linger. Will inflation and negative GDP print decline? Furthermore, how will these factors affect you and your investments? Jim Welsh appears on this episode of FSN to inform us about what to expect in consideration of the role that the Fed will play over the next couple of months. We’re seeing increases in gas and oil, wage growth that does not mirror the progression of inflation, and depletion of supplies in the energy sector. Listen in for more insight on the mayhem of the markets, and scenarios for the foreseeable future.

-Jim was expecting a 10-15% pullback going into this year, accounting for trends in the S&P
-We’ve had the pullback from the highs, but the S&P needs to punch about 4200 to open the door for higher prices
-The Fed is at an interesting juncture that will play a role over the next few months
-Interest rate increases have adversely affected the economy, housing, etc.
-Consumers still have over $2 trillion worth of savings, but the bottom 20% of wage earners spend 70-75% of their disposable income
-The squeeze is already intense, and this is going to continue
-Wage growth (about 5-6%) is not parallel with inflation
-The Fed is trying to prevent the markets from getting ahead of them, which contributes to their decision making
-The increase in gas and oil in May will contribute a lot to inflation
-As they raise rates more, the economy will show signs of slowing in the next few months
-The Fed has started to shrink its balance sheet, which has not been paid attention to closely
-Jim thinks we may be on the cusp of a 15-20 year bear market; a lot of issues that have been building up with the US economy will most likely come to a head
-Is inflation down-ticking enough to give people on the Federal Reserve confidence that inflation is going to trend downwards?
-Gold needs to hold recent lows to make another run above 1900s
-When volatility increases, the relation between sectors moves upwards towards 1
-We need to see a break in oil, and subsequently, in gasoline prices
-We should be focusing on the price of natural gas rather than oil
-We’re depleting supplies that, in the past, would have gone to other domestic needs
-There is a floor underneath Natgas prices

With many losses in the stock market over the last few months, many investors are in search of alternatives for cash flow. Fred Moskowitz comes on the show to talk about alternative investing methods, focusing on note investing—an oftentimes overlooked asset within the real estate market.

Be sure to tune in to this episode for an insider perspective of this alternative to the stock market, and you can use the link below to purchase Moskowitz’s The Little Green Book of Note Investing if you want to learn more.

-There have been losses in the stock market over the last few months, and many investors are looking for alternatives
-For a fleeing stock market investor, there are a number of alternative investing methods
-It’s important to own assets that generate income for you, such as rental real estate. The government has incentives in place for owning these

-Owning a mortgage on a rental property gives a lot of downside protection. Another positive aspect is that you get paid while you wait
-Buying/starting a business allows you to be directly involved with the asset
-Buying properties based on future cash flow can be risky in an inflated market
-It’s beneficial to buy real estate if an opportunity appears with a cash flow that can cover your expenses

-Mortgage notes can be found by working with real estate investment groups and seeking out note investors
-Notes can also be acquired through creating contacts and networking within real estate
-Educating yourself before buying anything is also crucial
-Notes are traditionally sold for a discount
-Supply and demand impacts the pricing of notes, and some states have more demand for notes
-You can buy a portion of a note rather than the note in its entirety (i.e. buying a $10k slice of a note). This is helpful for getting started in note investing
-Fred’s book, The Little Green Book of Note Investing, gives an overview of note investing and provides tips, logistics, and how-to’s in this sector

With increasing energy prices and the prospect of a recession, Brandon Cobb comes on the show to tell about what our options are when it comes to investing. It seems that real estate is an incredibly viable option in the current circumstances; as living standards fluctuate with the economy, the need to live ultimately never goes away.

-Assisted living facilities are positioned for great need in the real estate industry
-A lot of people have been moving to Tennessee due to low income taxes

-Interest rates and inflation are working against each other
-Real estate is a safe haven for inflation
-Brandon predicts that we’re going to have a lot of volatility; it’s best to be where the greatest demand is right now

How much longer is CPI inflation going to be in effect, and are there any solutions in sight? I sit down and chat with Drew Pelton, who brings us up to speed with the latest news regarding inflation, emphasizing that it is not transitory and is highly unpredictable at the moment. We haven’t felt the rue effects of CPI inflation yet, and the Fed continuing to raise rates isn’t contributing our awareness of the situation. Tune in for more insight.

-There’s no hope in the short term (over the next few months to half a year)
-Inflation is not transitory, and it’s hard to predict what’s going to happen/when

As energy costs continue to skyrocket, we wonder if we can get out of the box we’ve put ourselves in and create a positive vision for the future. I have Matthew Iak on the show to discuss this energy phenomenon, and what’s in store.

-Energy costs are high because of supply and demand
-The question is if we can get out of the box we’re in, and it will ultimately take political will
