"To rewarding policyholders who keep their employees safe more at Texas mutual dot com. And you're listening to the Texas standard. It's been weeks since Hurricane Ida hit the Louisiana coast as a powerful category four storm damage was extensive along the Gulf Coast, and some people in Louisiana are still experiencing power outages even as tropical storm Nicholas threatens cleanup and recovery is ongoing, and that includes for industries along the coast. Here to talk about the lingering effects of the storm on the energy industry is Matt Smith, He's lead oil analyst for the Americas at the Analytics firm Kepler. Matt. Welcome back. Thank you. So what kind of impact are we still seeing from Hurricane Ida on the U. S Gulf Coast. We're still seeing a massive impacts even though we're a couple of weeks ahead here, so typically after we have a hurricane or tropical storm passing through the U. S Gulf, and it hits that U. S production. Offshore there and shuts it in. You typically see it returned fairly quickly once the storm has passed, But that just hasn't happened this time. So the storm hit as mentioned just over two weeks ago, and yet mid last week, about three quarters of offshore oil production was still offline. And now that number has dropped to below 50% now, but it's still sort of 880,000 barrels per day, which is shut in. But what is actually muting. The impact of that supply loss, however, is that we're seeing the demand side hit two in terms of refineries. So you're seeing a lot of those refineries in Louisiana struggling to come back. So there has to some extent been a less urgent needs for that production to come back online there, but.

"A better one than we found ourselves in a year ago, right about now and Bob along the way. You also got some exclusive reporting. About. You know how close we were actually, maybe having a leg up on on viruses like this, eh? So walk us through what you learned A Z reported out. Your cover story. Yes, it turns out, I did this reporting, you know that there were ah, lot of people thinking about this and interested. You know, years they didn't know it was gonna be a Corona virus, but everyone knew something was coming. Eventually that infectious disease experts stated there were people that were thinking about how to repair how to do things, but There just wasn't the willpower energy to get it done in one company, Gossip SmithKline I found out from a reporting actually, for close the whole kind of epidemic. But tenderness Vaccine research center they proposed is to the U. S government Barda, which is what's funding a lot of the vaccines. Now it's a small agency funding a lot of the vaccines now, and they propose a research center that ever looked have looked in specifically into Messenger Arnie Vaccine That's one of the successful vaccines and adenovirus space. Sexy is the other side of vaccine has been successful. No idea was they would have taken like everything that you know, looked worrisome and gotten prototype vaccines into early trials. They could be ready to go. And then the next epidemic, but it just didn't happen. So we weren't quite prepared. You know, as we should have been right and we should have been right. We could have been. That's the whole point. And the cost of this thing. Yeah, it would have been 595 million over 10 years, which, I guess sounds like a lot you know, three or four years ago, but compared to the cost has had to bear now through this pandemic. You know, it's just Nothing like that. Now. People are kind of dusting off versions of proposal, saying, Let's do it again. Let's do something somewhere. And then some of these ideas are out. There is what you know we need is the willpower to do it. Another idea that out there's two for me and one of the problems we have is good, You know, data on the right key moments when epidemics are starting to emerge, you know, it's sort of like a Early in a forest fire. You gonna identify it and identify the threat noise soon and act And for that you need really, really good surveillance and really, really good data, and one of the ideas of out there is the form sort of a national weather.

"Pretty calls I'm curious is it has to do with finding diversification in interest in your opinion, you know, I've recently have been looking at Making some investments in some large cap mutual funds. Large cap growth, large cap bland, even some sector funds. What not, and frankly, what I'm finding is whether you go to Vanguard or Fidelity or black Rocket doesn't matter. Name name them all. They all seem to hold the same positions. You know their top 10. Now they may be in different order rights or different percentages. But basically they all seem to have the same, You know, stop their investments, I guess trying to really figure out how do you find diversification or you just go toe One fan, but one fun family that you want to do a large cap growth fun with and just You know, stick with them and not diversify that between two or three great questions. So here's what I do. So I have. Well, I call and was called core and satellite. Can you turn down or turn off your radio? I'm getting some feedback. Please. Um okay, so I I use what I think of is a Korean satellite. So first of all, I want to get all of the what they call the Beta. I'll say the U. S stock market So I buy a U. S. Stock market Total stock market. Uh, Exchange traded are open and index funds and now I get I get the total capitalization of the U. S market Now, if I want additional exposure, let's just use your example the large cap growth My experience is there's going to be two ways that that could be done with active management. The ones who tend to outperform in a bull market perform their index You can use an index like the Russell 1000 growth right now, I suppose you might even use the S and P 500 sense of growth has dominated for 10 years. Are those it out, perform on the way down. So I like the downside protection. So when everything went to heck in a handbasket From February 20th to march the 23rd. I own a couple of actively manage stock funds, one domestic and one foreign, and they rose to like 12 or three percentile with Morningstar. Not because he didn't go down, but because he went down Wes, and as a consequence, my portfolio came back sooner when the market rebounded now. In a runaway growth mark large cap growth market. That strategy will cause me to under perform on that portion of my portfolio. Simply because they're managing for a different objective. Now I don't I'm aware of and on a small piece of a small cap growth fund. That's that's concentrated. She may own 25 or 30 names. By definition that's gonna have AH, hire volatile should have a higher volatility profile than then say if I bought the Russell 1000 Growth Index fund And I accept that. And so maybe she'll have a 45% year. But she'll have someone when things go down should go down. Probably more than the index, which is fine as long as I understand her return pattern. Before I make the investment. And finally I'm not a fan of sector funds, and I never have been because I think they have the characteristic of individual securities. That is, if you were in a nerd Gee fund last year. It doesn't matter how great the stock Biggers were. You had a terrible year on def you were in You know, I t fun, no matter how lousy stock pickers were. You had a great year, but over time I prefer if I'm going to get active management Let them choose what they believe are the attractive industries and I'm gonna look at their down markets. What's called downmarket capture an upmarket capture. Then I'm going to do what I said er to an earlier color or texture, which is if I narrow it down to say three funds. I'm gonna take a long time period and I'm going to see what the might growth of 1000 or $110,000 was because it's the distribution of returns that will affect my end. Ending value, and that's how I look at it. That's great, Carl. I really appreciate your insight on it. Thank you so much. Thanks for calling. You're listening to money..

Use the answer to people's needs in a very different way. And until not that long ago understood its vision, democracy, you know, open economies competition, You know, state playing only certain roles in society as the right model for you. No improvement in growth, etcetera. You know, there is a genuine competition out there ideologically, and it's incumbent upon the U. S to come up with a narrative. About why the values that we cherish. You don't really do produce a better outcome. Three. Us can conceivably come up with this answer, but it's It's a real challenge. It's a challenge of the moment and the Democratic model as the ideal of a system of government to deliver the goods. Has over the last several years been subject to a pretty pretty substantial challenge. In a lot of different ways, and some of those ways points to profound flaws within the U.

But I was referring specifically the ability of a country to respond to a catastrophic event. With the plan singular response. Their argument has been looking. How how well we've done and our own our own response to the pandemic, Frankly, on the world basis has been pathetic. Well, certainly, the response of endemic has shown how important the status but it certainly isn't true that the Chinese centralized model has been the quote unquote winner. Let's look at New Zealand or Australia. I'm incredibly positive. Overall response is both of them are, you know, relatively vibrant democracy? Ideological model of the Communist Party s so you know. The U. S has failed miserably in its response to Kobe. But one of the key takeaways is the difficulty the federal government had in taking control of the situation messaging, you know, applying federal power, and some of that is our system of federalism. And some of it is just the way in which the state the executive manage that But we we did a terrible job. But that or 100,000, plus deaths. I mean, I think the whole the whole idea of our system has been. We distrust too much power in a in a central source. And there's another argument has played him in the case of a pandemic. Wouldn't it be good to have a little more centralized power to make two and two make certain things that scientists and others are telling us our rational response to this to be able to respond in a systematic fashion? But we don't we don't actually mistrust centralized power for things we like like interstate highways or the fact that airplanes Congar oh, from one place to another and not crash into each other. Or the fact that, you know, think of all the things that need together the country and it really vibrant and successful way.

What are the first steps that you always tell people when they're trying to evaluate the death they have and manage it successfully. Well, The first thing they should do is figure out if it's good death necessary or bad debt. I mean that there's good debt, my mortgage school loans. If I want to be a doctor, I have to go to medical school. I may take on some debt, but I'm gonna have a great career.

It's the bad debt that you really want to get your arms around. Right. So that's the credit card debt that I'm paying 10% 12% 18% even in this low interest rate environment. The way that you think about that is okay. If I have a number of different credit cards because I've seen this. Where are five credit cards In some 12%? Some at 8%. I would pay the minimum. Hey, the minimum amount on each credit card. Now you've heard or if I pay the minimum that can take me literally 60 years, potentially, uh, not literally, but you know, it could take you literally decades, though. Get out of debt. If you just pay the minimum, but just pay the minimum on all your credit cards, And then when you have extra money, throw it at the one that has the highest interest rates. And that will get you out of the dead faster than you know, I see a lot of people saying, Well, I'm going to pay off the one that has the lowest balance first and just get rid of it. But if that has the lowest interest rate that's not the smartest way to do it. So if you have a lot of credit card debt By the different that Categorize. Hey, good debt. No worries necessary, Dead page, necessary Car loan. I'll pay it off after five years of talking and go on forever. It's the bad debt.

It's interesting because I had a discussion with some pastors this morning that we're not aware of this. But in the last reporting cycle, the U. S government paid our tax monies that we paid to them. They paid Planned Parenthood about $1200. For every child that they killed in that reporting cycle is the most recent set of numbers. We have. It came out in 2020. It reported on the 2019 numbers. But in that time period we paid $1200 per baby killed. Via planned Parenthood via our tax, money and friends as as Christians as people that are people of God, we can't we can't do that.

Wow, It's unbelievable. It's it's a little different than last time when it hit its all time highs before back when it first jumped up to 20,000. All of the crypto currencies had jumped up with it. All right. We are seeing a lot of them jump up, but a lot of them are not following Bitcoin like they did last time. Well, right, Yeah, And so that's kind of the problem with Bitcoin.

Who would you? You know so So exactly what is its value out there in the market? If if you can't Well, and by the way, if you never know what that thing is worse, you know, worth all you're doing is buying and trading something on an idea and people are buying into it. Because they look at it as hey, Bitcoin doesn't isn't an inflationary, you know, type thing well, and then they think they're cryptocurrencies of the future. Yeah, well, they do. But in order for it to be the future, it has to be accepted at retail stores. It has to be accepted by the U. S government so you can pay taxes with it. There's a lot that has to happen, and there's none of that in place right now. And so right now it's only an idea of what it could be in the future. But that's just a dot com and that's why it's so scary. So am I saying, Don't trade it? No, No, I'm not. I'm saying Manager risk to the downside because there is this massive variation, right?

That's something I need to worry about. Um, Yeah, because I mean, the more that lifters tapping around in there the possibility of it causing damage the cam. Um you know what I would suggest doing is trying to run Maybe an engine flush through it. See if you can't clean any garbage junk That's in that left her that Would possibly keep it from, you know, pumping up all the way and then and then just run a good call the oil in it and see if that doesn't take care of it. If it doesn't and the lifter continues to collapse and make noise like that, Yeah, that's gonna be, you know, pull the topside. The engine apart, put a set of lifters in it. Stay. How much does that cost? Usually, If you want to give us called shop on Monday, they be happy. Get your Nessman on that I wouldn't know. I've talked my head. Yeah. If I just put thicker oil in there without help. No, not always. I would highly recommend cleaning first, you know, do it doing oil flush on it, Um, first before you You know, just run a thicker oil. Okay. What kind of product is good for an oil flush. We carry quite a bit of stuff. I mean, BG makes him stuff out there. Um, you know that e p R and mentioned to a previous caller. That stuff works really great. Get rid of any you know, deposits or sludge is it's in the engine.

"Cave and here we are going to wrap up with just a couple last topics, but I think Let's approach the Chinese economy first, and then let's go with With corn versus Tesla. See which one's more sexy. How about that? I was going to say we said corn and Tesla and people probably thinking what is his test? I'm making like a corn powered car, the ethanol like what's going on here? You know, we're interested in trading corn or trading Tesla. Yeah. Which one's more sexy, Not corn being used in Tesla's No, not not there. All right, so the Chinese economy is up and gaining momento. Um It's AH, it's theorized by many of the economists that they will overtake the U. S economy when 2028. That's going to have major effects on our economy. A long ways away 2028. It's not all that long. How young are you? Yeah, Seven years is a long time. So, yes. So the question is, is why is the Chinese economy up and gaining momentum in 2020 end the U. S economy is Really doing so poorly because we printed more money than them. You know what? I don't know. They're probably print right now. I think they're printing money at the rapid rate, trained to trying to deep inflate their own currency so that their value is low, and they can keep selling goods too. To the U. S of the largest economy. I suspect that that's what they're doing. They've been doing it for years. You know, they play with their money. They don't even try and hide it. Not every country manipulates their currency, by the way. Yeah, that's actually that hooks on to why people trade for exes Because with all of that manipulation, it provides opportunity. You know, lots of opportunity. That's right. If you if you see the Markers of manipulation. And that's you know that that is our core strategy. That is the strategy that we use and teaching. Our school is find out, you know, looking and seeing the charts where you're seeing manipulation and where you see manipulation. Beat things become much more predictable. Exactly all right, because people are going to continue If governments can get away with it, make it happen then guess what big corporations. Get away. They they do it too. Oh, yeah, They all do it. Yeah, and so find out where the manipulation is and trade in whichever way it's being manipulated. That's that's how we teach people. Yeah, And if you want to learn about your strategy, you just got to come to our three hour works up a complimentary class, complimentary class two seats, and we have the three locations. We have the sanitary wipes. So we waited for the down with we have hand sanitizer. We're best way have all all the stuff that we need. You could just give us a call at 84 48 Trader. That's 84487 23 37 or text the letters. O ta 23196. All right. So, um in the Chinese economy. What's a little bit different, though, is that unlike other places in the world They didn't do the lockdowns they kept producing. Oh, yeah, I know, right? They decided. Hey, we're going to just keep pressing forward and you know they didn't say what they did or didn't do. But they stopped releasing Cove in numbers at all. And they simply said, All right, we're powering through this. Yeah, Their economy is up and running and gaining momentum, and that's going to have a lot of impact on us in the future, because one of the reasons that are One of the reasons that our economy is doing so has been doing so well and has been so safe in the past is because being number one comes with its privileges. And you know that. I don't know. The Golden dollar thing is one of those privileges if that ever changes places and all the sudden it's not the U. S currency that is being held, and it's not the U. S currency that is being looked at. It's not the U. S economy that is being looked at to determine what happens throughout the rest of the world. Well, things become less predictable. In the U. S markets, things become Less rosy in the U. S markets and inflation is going to get much higher as those dollars that are held overseas start pouring back in, so this is kind of a big deal, and it's something that we just really need to watch and plan for in our portfolios in the future. Yeah, especially in your wealth counts. Something to look at. Yeah. You know if you're a little bit concerned about that, don't be just figure out how to how to manage your risk. And you could do that by giving his call coming to one of our classes again. The number is 84 48 trader. That's 844. 887 23 37 or texts, letters. Oh, ta 231996 Let's talk about corn. All right. Corn is a mover this week, right? It has been a move over the last five days. It's up 23 points, which doesn't sound like a lot to most people, because 23 is like, Yeah, OK, That's what we said points not dollars, right because points a point on the futures market because this is a futures contract. Is $50 on corn. So it's $50 for every point which there's 23 of those that's a little over $1000. I think it's ah 1001 150. From correct here. I think I am half on that. Yeah, that was 1 50 times. 23 is over 1000. That's that's correct. Yeah, And that's it's that's for 150. So if you're holding one contract of corn, the margin that it takes to hold that contract is about 1000 to $1100 matters and what brokers you have. That's right. And so in One week, people who held the corn contract this week from the beginning of the week to the end of it. It's 115% up. 115% up now we were going to compare that to test. What do you want to be tested? Well, yes. Oh, Tesla also took a jump. And, yeah, there were lots of stories written about that. So here the stories. You know Tesla's hitting new highs and they're up yet, so they started off this five day period at 637.56. And they ended that five day trading period that we're considering at 6 64 74. All right, so that's a move of $27 in 18 cents. All right Now, if you were buying this and maximizing your margin, like we would expect you to there in the in the futures, it would have cost you for for one. Tesla's stock. It would've cost $318.78. If you were doing $1000 Then you would get a little bit. I guess you get almost three or three a little bit more like three and 1/8 or something. But the movement itself was just 8.5%. And so your total, you know, you would have invested 2000 and got a little bit more than $100 out of it, or a little bit less than 100. 8.5% little bit less than 100 out of it. Yeah, even 5% in a week doesn't sound bad to most people. But look at the other opportunity to use right to paint as an investor. What you're always looking at is where does my money you know? Where am I going to do the best with my money? Where is my money going to work Hardest for me. And guess what? It wasn't in Tesla's know, as many people think that Tesla's the Golden Goose. That's right. The thing is, is that there weren't a lot of news stories about corn. Why Because the futures market and the forex market are reserved for people that know what they're doing, and it's reserved for the wealthy class. And so they don't talk about it In the normal news, you don't hear about it, but that's where the action is. And with the dollar softening. That's where commodities is where the action is. I could give you many examples. Soybean wasn't far behind that. I mean go down the line and you had massive opportunities in the commodities market in the futures market. But you just didn't have in the stock market, The stock markets all we talked about Yeah. You know the other Don't know beautiful thing about the futures market. If you're going to trade the best tax breaks, you've got into the futures and forex markets. Oh, yeah. And you also I mean, you're not telling us much capital a trade 24 hours. They're 23 hours and something minutes s o. The the advantages. Air? Yeah, the risk management techniques that we typically have worked so much better..
