Staying the Course

It was a seesaw battle, but one that was very telling.  This was the first time in a while multiple buying efforts were thwarted, but buyers didn’t head for the exits.

China Inflation Eases

China inflation edged lower to 2.5% last month from 2.7%, but consensus was looking for it to edge higher to 2.8%.

It’s been a long time, but this news out of China has speculators trying to get in front of a possible better-than-expected CPI report next Tuesday.

Professional investors also thrilled retail sentiment continues to sink.  Don’t let them push you out of the greatest money-making machine ever – because they only want to buy what you will help make cheap.


It is time to put more money to work in my opinion.

The game plan is the same- we may have to be nimbler than the usual because of the near-term unknowns form exogenous factors with the Fed being at the top of the list.

Its assets include the Grasberg minerals district in Indonesia; Morenci, Bagdad, Safford, Sierrita, and Miami in Arizona; Tyrone and Chino in New Mexico; and Henderson and Climax in Colorado, North America, as well as Cerro Verde in Peru and El Abra in Chile. The company also operates a portfolio of oil and gas properties primarily located in offshore California and the Gulf of Mexico. As of December 31, 2021, it operated approximately 135 wells. The company was formerly known as Freeport-McMoRan Copper & Gold Inc. and changed its name to Freeport-McMoRan Inc. in July 2014. Freeport-McMoRan Inc. was incorporated in 1987 and is headquartered in Phoenix, Arizona.

SKINNY: Like the majority of commodities, copper has been crushed in the past last months sending FCX down for he year. Despite China being in lockdowns over the last few years, the country ran into shortages due to a drought reducing hydro power. Still, the company needs about 1 million tonnes of additional annual copper demand in order to reach a 2025 goal for 1,200 gigawatts of renewable energy capacity. For FCX, we are buyers are this level. The company has strong cash flows and profits, and it is poised to ride the future surging copper demand higher. Our target 38.
