Insights: The D-economy won the week

Our D-economy theme dominated last week. Will it be two weeks in a row? So far, this week the tables are turned with optimism building ahead of some key US earnings report. We look at what insiders are signalling in Canada about the deflation versus inflation battle that is shaping up. Meanwhile, our insider of the week is from the cryptocurrency space, a corner of the market that many investors may be overlooking. Click here to read this week's free Insights newsletter.

Monday on INK Ultra Money: Crypto comeback

Cryptocurrencies have been making a comeback over the past few weeks, but does the rally have staying power?

Quant-oriented investors, don't miss today's Real Vision episode which looks at getting big macro bets right.

Birchcliff is beating the tech giants

This weekend in the Globe and Mail we featured insider buying at natural gas producer Birchcliff Energy (BIR). Insiders were buying around the year-to-date stock market lows set on March 23rd. That turned out to be a great signal. Since that date, Birchcliff Energy stock is up over 130%.

March is shaping up to be a potential long-term turning point

Thanks to the law of small numbers kicking in, Birchcliff has left even Amazon (AMZN) in the dust which is up an impressive 27%. Below is the video summary of our original report on Birchcliff which we sent to members on April 7th.

Insider long-term bets paying off

There really is no better time to make use of INK reports than during the current bottoming process we are going through. Although these are challenging days, we also have tremendous opportunity to build our wealth in the times ahead.

INK Ultra Money: A nuclear spring? Not letting a good crisis go to waste

Energy has been a hot sector since the March 23rd lows. Within the sector, the uranium group has led the way, and today INK Research takes a look at a company that invests strictly in physical uranium. In this report, INK references an enlightening Real Vision interview with Arthur Hyde from Segra Capital Management on April 15th who clearly explains the state of the uranium industry and why COVID-19 may be the spark that turns the industry around. If you are wondering if this uranium rally is for real, Hyde will help you make up your mind. He sealed it for me.

Rick Rule's silver insights plus a hot stock in a hot sector

Today, on INK Ultra Money we are treated to a master class in precious metals and mining investing by legendary resource investor Rick Rule. He lays out the stages of his precious metals investing strategy to help investors understand where we are currently in the precious metals investing cycle.

We also highlight the INK Edge stock in the hottest North America sector right now. The combination just might surprise you. Finally, in my latest Howe Street Interview I discuss some key insider trends that point to a G-economy environment in the not-to-distant future.

INK Ultra Money: Bracing for a G-economy inflation surprise

This morning, Real Vision hits on some potential big trends that we would expect to develop in our G-economy scenario. Should this scenario unfold, the investing environment will be a lot different than what investors experienced over the past decade. Meanwhile, some insiders are betting on better days ahead in the oil patch.

We start off with Dr. Peter Warburton, director of Economic Perspectives. He joins Real Vision to explain his thesis that the world is entering a new era of fiscal dominance which sounds a lot like INK's G-economy theme. He argues that the policy response to the coronavirus crisis has resembled war-time measures.

Calling on the poor to save the rich plus the durability of the rally

In the latest free Canadian Insider Insights newsletter, we suggest a cautious approach towards the April rally. However, we continue to believe that Canadian mid-cap stocks have an important role to play as we move through the COVID-19 pandemic.

On INK Ultra Money, we hear Vincent Deluard explain how society is essentially asking the poor and its youth to make sacrifices for the benefit of the rich and elderly. He suggests that inflation is the ultimate outcome of this ask. We also highlight a gold royalty company hitting the INK Edge screens.
