    What a Gas! Pipeline Panic Won’t Fuel a Stock Crash

    What a Gas! Pipeline Panic Won’t Fuel a Stock Crash

    Up and down the East Coast, people are flocking to gas stations to fill up their vehicles.
    GasBuddy, a website dedicated to finding real-time fuel prices, found that demand for gasoline rose 32.5% on Monday due to the shutdown of the Colonial Pipeline.
    PADDs (Petroleum Administration for Defense Districts) are used to control allocation of gasoline or diesel. PADD 1 is the East Coast, where demand surged more than 32% on Monday.
    The Colonial Pipeline supplies a good portion of oil and gas to the region. It was shut down last Friday after hackers gained access to the pipeline.
    According to https://www.wsj.com/articles/as-colonial-pipeline-shutdown-drags-on-after-hack-eyes-are-on-gasoline-prices-11620660258 (The Wall Street Journal), gasoline futures prices have already jumped more than 50% this year.
    As a smart investor, you may be pondering whether now is a time to exit some of your oil and gas positions.

    Biden’s Stock Boom, Capital Gains and the Future of the Market

    Biden’s Stock Boom, Capital Gains and the Future of the Market

    It’s a common misnomer that when a Democrat is president of the United States, stock market returns are lower than when a Republican is in office.
    Recent data from JPMorgan illustrates that. It tracked the average returns of the SandP 500 over the first 100 days of a president being in office.
    The results are pretty interesting.
    The report found that SandP 500 returns under President Joe Biden are nearly 25%, compared to less than 15% under President Donald Trump.
    It’s the highest average return of any president in the last 75 years. It’s also more than double the average return of any Republican president since World War II.
    However, something on the horizon may hamper those strong returns.
    Chief investment strategist Adam O’Dell and Green Zone Fortunes co-editor Charles Sizemore join me on this weekend edition of https://moneyandmarkets.com/podcast/ (The Bull and The Bear). We break down returns and future returns if a capital gains tax increase is implemented.

    Inflation Will Soar Past Fed’s 2% Target: Buy This Before It Happens

    Inflation Will Soar Past Fed’s 2% Target: Buy This Before It Happens

    It’s been all over the news lately.
    And U.S. companies are taking note.
    The mention of this one little word has rocketed up 800% in quarterly earnings calls year-over-year, https://finance.yahoo.com/news/warren-buffett-is-right-inflation-is-running-rampant-105340040.html (according to recent research) by Bank of America Securities.
    The word is: inflation.
    Simply put, inflation is the reduction of a currency’s purchasing power, or how much a dollar will buy, over time.
    Last week, Adam O’Dell, Charles Sizemore and I discussed inflation and where it might be headed in our weekend edition of The Bull and The Bear.
    Adam even gave you an exchange-traded fund (ETF) that you can use to combat the potential rise in inflation. To listen to that podcast, click https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=-_SyvdDvvqo (here).
    That discussion put me on the hunt for another hedge against a coming jump in inflation.
    As a smart investor, guarding your portfolio against a rise in inflation is important. The last thing you want is for inflation to outpace your overall gains in any given year.
    Adam gave you an ETF last week to do that.
    Today, I have another fund for you.
    In this episode of https://moneyandmarkets.com/podcast/ (The Bull and The Bear), I tell you why this ETF is one for your portfolio.

    Inflation-Proof Your Portfolio: Best Strategies + One ETF to Buy

    Inflation-Proof Your Portfolio: Best Strategies + One ETF to Buy

    If there was a positive that came from the COVID-19 pandemic, it’s that inflation did not surge out of control. The price of goods remained somewhat flat.
    But you may be worried about an inflation spike as the economy reopens. That’s understandable. The last thing we want is for inflation to outpace gains in our portfolios.
    Inflation is the “general increase in the price of goods and services over time that corresponds with a decrease in the value of money.”
    Simply put, inflation is the reduction of a currency’s purchasing power, or how much a dollar will buy, over time.
    Inflation is watched by the average consumer. But is it also tracked by businesses and smart investors, like you. After all, no one likes to see the value of their savings diminish.
    In this episode of The Bull and The Bear, we examine inflation, and where it might be heading next.

    Tesla Earnings Red Flag: Why the Hyped EV Stock Isn’t a Buy

    Tesla Earnings Red Flag: Why the Hyped EV Stock Isn’t a Buy

    I am no bull when it comes to Tesla Inc. (Nasdaq: TSLA).
    I don’t think Tesla is a bad company. I just struggle with its valuation and its financials.
    If you just look at the topline numbers, Tesla looks pretty impressive.
    The company’s stock has been on a tear since last year.
    That, however, may be coming to an end.
    Its recent quarterly earnings statement revealed one reason why.
    Yes, it beat earnings-per-share expectations by about $0.13 per share.
    Yes, total revenue grew 74% year over year in the first quarter.
    But there is more to it than that.
    In this episode of https://moneyandmarkets.com/podcast/ (The Bull and The Bear), I tell you why Tesla Inc. (Nasdaq: TSLA) is still not a buy.
    And, I’ll tell you what in its quarterly report led me to that conclusion.

    Gold Is Ready to Rip Higher — Here’s Why

    Gold Is Ready to Rip Higher — Here’s Why

    The stock market took a huge hit when the COVID-19 pandemic ramped up in March 2020.
    Between March 4 and March 11, the SandP 500 tanked 12% into a bear market.
    On March 12, the index fell another 9.5%. It was the biggest one-day decline since 1987.
    Stocks and commodities were slammed across the market.
    In the weeks that followed the crash, one thing rose farther and faster than anything else: gold.
    Between March 22 and March 23, 2020, the price of June Comex gold futures rose from $1,567 to $1,660 — a 6% jump in one day.
    By August, gold surpassed $2,000.
    But equity prices started to rise. Investors moved out of their hedge positions and back into stocks. The price of gold sank again.
    In this episode of The Bull and The Bear, we examine gold’s journey since March 2020, and where it might be heading next.
