In this week's episode of the Stansberry Investor Hour, Dan welcomes back Mike McGlone, a Senior Commodities strategist for Bloomberg Intelligence with over 25 years of experience in the industry. Mike shares his insights on the direction of US agriculture, the possibility of liquidity collapsing, and the current bear market rally.
Prior to the interview, Dan and Corey discuss the escalating tensions between Taiwan and China. They mention how due to these geopolitical concerns, Warren Buffet recently sold 86% of his position in Taiwan Semiconductor Company (NYSE: TSM). However, Buffet's move into Japanese investments, which he currently owns about 7.4% of, is consistent with his belief in America's resilience. Dan notes that he won't necessarily follow Buffet's lead, but it's still interesting to see what he does.
“This could be the greatest economic reset of our lifetime.”
Then, Dan introduces Mike, and the two break down how the S&P 500 and bond market both suffered significant corrections last year due to the Federal Reserve raising rates too much and too late. As we tilt towards a significant recession, and the Fed continues to tighten, time will show if bonds will be some of the best assets.
Mike and Dan then delve into various commodities, including natural gas, gold, and crude oil. They highlight how gold may become a more attractive investment option in the near future, with the stock market reaching its most expensive level compared to GDP, sales, and housing, and the Fed tightening into a deflationary period.
Finally, Mike highlights how electrification, de-carbonization, and digitalization are all bullish for copper, but it's not as easy to increase copper supplies as it used to be. With copper reaching an all-time high in 2022, it's a clear indication of where we're headed in the future.
