The Brazilian Reel has done very well I have 2 Brazilian stocks in my port. $GGB and $VALE. I think it is far more likely that EM outperform the USA in the next 12 months. Especially in China abandons their Zero Covid policy which I believe they will be forced to for their economy and civil unrest. China does more trading with EM than the USA due to needing natural resources for production /manufacturing.

I just added to $IPI. I am of the belief that the market is going to soon price in stagflation which is stagnant growth and higher prices. The last time we had stagflation was the 70's and early 80's. The best performing assets then were 1) Gold, 2) Commodities.

My top 7 holdings are now $HAL, $GOLD, $IPI, $KMI, $MOS, $FSM, and $GGB. Halliburton has been my best performing stocks and Barrick has been the worse. Somehow my port is only down 10% for the year. Commodity stocks aren't for everyone; but there are other port holdings that can outperform the market. Some here are big into Financials, Energy, Industrials, and Consumer Staples which have also done well. Just a reminder, Tech stocks aren't the entire market.

Good Luck

I think great dividend companies tend to rise to the top. I give you props for putting the information out there in the first place.

OHI has been questionable for years. BTI has a superior balance sheet to VGR, why not just own BTI?

I generally stay away from restaurants. Even so I like others in the space better i.e. FCPT.

GGB the dividend is all over the road. Why when EPD has 24 years of consecutive dividend increases.

That’s just my take.

Everybody loves $10 stocks. GGB $4.83. I made 40% this year. Buying again. Mining industry is not good for holding long term but great for trading and pays good dividends. PBR $14. Buy it under $12 and keep it for crazy dividends (47% yield!). Check KGC $3.64 and BTG $3.40 if you feel like researching gold mining companies.

I've bought $HAL, $MOS, $GGB, and $GOLD today. We can all roll our eyes on this insanity and suits crowing demand destruction. Or we can profit on this insanity. This is what happened in the 70's. Inflation should have lasted maybe 2 years. But those damn politicians extended it to over 10 years with their braindead policies trying to help.

The dollar is not done. But it is moving lower from 109 down to 100. I am just looking at charts. J-Pow is also very aware that a strong US dollar puts the entire world into a depression. So I am buying stocks that will outperform on a weaker dollar. I just bought more $GGB Brazilian Steel whose profits are in Reals. And also $IPI since fertilizer stocks are moving up with grain futures. Commodities are priced in US dollars. A weaker dollar gives a tight commodity market even more legs.

I could be wrong. But this is what I am seeing. Everyone is on the side of a strong US dollar. Usually that means a trade is developing against the dumb money.

Last week I bought $GT, $GOLD, and $GGB. I like the letter G. Today I trimmed and sold some $MOS at open and sold out of $MO. I am less bullish on the letter M right now. I am debating buying more $GOLD today even after the 5% pop as no one is talking about Gold. I like to buy what people are bearish on and sell what people are bullish on.

Added to $GGB which bounced off it's 200 DMA on 2 yr charts. Added to $MOS which bounced off it's 50 DMA on 2 yr charts. Opened a position in $FCX and added to $IPI. Steel, Ag Fertilizer, and Copper. Too much smart money is shorting commodities right now.

If we have demand destruction I am screwed; however I am not seeing demand destruction at the gas pumps. The US durable goods May print today missed to upside of 0.7% act vs 0.1% increase exp.

I am only seeing/hearing demand destruction talk on CNBC & Reddit and not in the real world. The numbers don't lie.

Look at DMA's (daily moving averages). Most commodity stocks are still above their resistance levels. I don't know what stocks you own but there is a real supply/demand issue. The Fed & other central banks are trying to start a depression to lower demand with a shrinking supply. That's their only option. Just like their transitory inflation J-boning 1 yr ago.

The steel stocks I own like $CLF & $GGB are most vulnerable. As Steel is a finished product and not a commodity.

$MOS & $IPI will pick up like all agriculture stocks once food prices spike.

$FCX or $VALE will move up once China starts full time manufacturing.

$GOLD, $KGC, $FSM, $AG, etc are precious metal stocks, They move based on the US 10 Yr.

All oil stocks will rebound after another 10-20% drop.

Everyone quotes Warren Buffet saying be greedy when others are fearful. That's a bs quote from him. His best quote and I'm paraphrasing is the stock market is a transfer of wealth from those that are patient from those that are impatient.

That's why I have been buying mostly small caps and cheaper valuation commodity stocks. Both have been hit very hard this year but I am looking at the long term picture. The commodity stocks (minus Oil) like $CLF, $MOS, $GGB, $IPI, etc could end up being expensive if commodity prices fall off a cliff. So those are a gamble. However, there is still this nasty supply/demand problem.

But look at the Forward P/E's under 7 for $HOG and $GT just as 2 examples off the top of my head. They are priced as if no one is ever going to buy a motorcycle or tires ever again. And there are so many other small caps trading at the same low low forward valuations.

Sure if demand falls and the cost of inputs like Steel, Oil, Copper, etc keep rising those Forward P/E's could double, maybe in a worse case scenario. But then they would still be trading at a Forward P/E under 15. And the bull case is that these stocks could double and still be under priced.

History might show that I bought a whole bunch of value trap stocks at the top. But this market has completely mispriced growth from value that Coca-Cola is trading at a forward P/E 4x that of Harley-Davidson and Coca-Cola is even trading at a slightly higher valuation than Paypal and Apple for christ sakes.

End of Rant.

Most of the stocks I own pay dividends. $T, $KMI, $VZ, $PSX, $GOLD, $GGB, and $INTC are a few. The oil and Gold stocks are volatile thou and not for everyone that doesn't like volatility. AT&T has held up rather well if I add in the dividends I have received and subtract from the loses. Intel dividend yield is getting over 3%. Utilities are another good choice, but research your local utility providers as they are in regional markets.

I bought $GGB with the rest of my cash in my account. Gerdau S.A., Brazilian Steel, with a forward P/E of 0.19 and 9.4% dividend. I need to wait for funds to clear tomorrow to do the rest of my stock buying for the month. I am thinking $KMI, $LNT, $T, and more $GGB & $MOS. All dividend stocks.

I might buy Paypal back as well so I can say I do own some tech stocks : )

I just squeezed out a + 0.11% gain for the day.

Biggest winners $FSM +7.65%, $AG + 6.52%, $KGC +4.86%, $GOLD +4.68%

Biggest losers $CX -6.10%, $GT -6.07%, $WNC -4.99%, $WBD -4.93%.

Gold and Silver served their purpose today. $T, $BUD, $WEAT, $MOS, $VALE, $SONY, $IPI, $LUMN, $GGB and $KMI were all basically flat or down less than 2%.

Another selloff for $GT after another earnings beat. I added to $GT and $GGB this morning. These stocks are either going to be value traps or eventually rebound if they keep beating on earnings in future quarters. I might put too much into Forward P/E ratios, but when they get below 7, I see value as long as revenues don't decline.

I 2x my planned purchases in stocks for the month of May early this week. I started a bit early on Monday. I added to $MOS, $HAL, $GT, $WNC, $GGB, $KMI, and $GOLD. I am in team not peak inflation. Sold out of $LEVI, $CNHI, and $SHLX.

I am waiting until after earnings to add to $INTC and open a position in $PYPL. $UMC is a stock I am also considering adding too. Public sentiment is soo negative on semi's. As a commodity investor I consider semi/chips to be the new copper and long term holds.

I just added to $GGB (Brazilian Steel) to go along with adding to $MOS, $HAL, and $GOLD. $MOS forward P/E is 5.2. $GGB forward P/E is 0.16. This peak inflation story is way too early. These companies are printing cash and hiking dividends.

Commodities have replaced bonds. If the US 10 yr is only paying 2.83% with 8.5% inflation than you need to invest in what pays a higher rate of return than inflation. That's commodities. The smart money has moved into Crude Oil stocks and Gold miners to a lesser extent, but not the rest of the commodity stocks.

Disclosure - I own $HAL, $GOLD, $PSX, $KMI, $PSX, $VALE, $GGB, $AG, $EXK, $FSM, $MOS, $BP, and $KMI and I am up on every single position. You buy what works and stocks trading above their support levels.

One more thing I've tried to cover my leap positions as well and that never really worked for me as leap tends to be so much move valuable you cannot let it be called.

What has worked for me is wheeling selected stocks AKA stuff that is in my portfolio anyway. I have basically a 50/50 value growth mix. I always open selling PUTs against falling stocks. As my portfolio is mixed it tends to be value stocks are going up when growth is going down and vice versa so I sell Puts against the red part. If I get called I just take the shares and sell calls usually also selling more puts to the other side of the portfolio which at this point is red. If you are interested my portfolio is below.

It's a large mix than traditionally recommended consisting of 78 stocks which I yearly generally replace 3-5 with new names. I generally try to keep position size about 20k per ticker except for things like GOOG and ASML due to stock price.

Investulator,

Thank you for your analysis. I should have clarified better that the ETFs that had the 77% drop were; RSX, ERUS, RSXJ, RUSL, and RUSS. https://finviz.com/map.ashx?t=etf&st=w4

My funds didn't settle in time to take long positions, before these funds were banned from trading in us markets. There is a rumour that you can still buy RSX on Robinhood, and a russian pegged index on the london exchange.

I took positions in CEE, EEA, GF, IFN, and will continue to cost avg in.

CEE - was trading 15 - 30, now at 7.5. -50% from the low end

EEA - was trading 9.5 to 10, now at 8.5 -10% from the low end

IFN - was comparing the recent price movement to its 52wk trading range, 20-22 now at 18-19. however i am always open to learn more about how to evaluate stocks.

GGB and GOGL may be undervalued depending on how Russian sanctions impact global trade.

For GGB, I believe their recent down trend correlated with the price drop in BRIC markets. While their price increase comes from; Brazil declaring their neutrality, the Russian sanctions restricting the world supply of metal, and good fundamentals at $6 price point. Will the world turn from Russian to Brazilian steel?

Gogl, is a shipping company with good fundamentals that paid a 20% dividend last year. i believe with oil at $100 a barrel, railroads and shipping will dominate the transportation industry.

I would love to hear what positions your taking or considering.

Of the six you mentioned:

  1. IFN: -12% YTD, -13% 1Y
  2. ING: -30% YTD, -16% 1Y
  3. GGB: +24% YTD, +19% 1Y
  4. GOGL: +22% YTD, +70% 1Y
  5. OEC: -11% YTD, -19% 1Y
  6. VEON: -79% YTD, -80% 1Y

Are we looking at the same data? (3) & (4) are actually doing better than the market.

I think only ING is considered "big dip". It has $5.3billion loans in Russian and $500million loans in Ukraine. $6B war exposure may seem like a lot, but ING's loan book is $600B, so this is only 1% of loan/sales, thus -30% seems excessive.

VEON is an ISP in 10 countries (Russia, Pakistan, Algeria, Uzbekistan, Ukraine, Bangladesh, Kazakhstan, Kyrgyzstan, Armenia and Georgia) and its maximum revenue derives from Russia. So -80% seems normal.

My plan for the week.. Buy $HAL, $CLF, $MOS at open. Buy $AG and $GOLD on the dip right after CPI Thursday. Sell all $INTC for a loss on the pump after CPI Thursday. Get out of $BP for a slight gain after it hits it's 50 dma. Sell my 1257 shares of $MOS once wsb actually starts mentioning the stock. Rotate my shares of $CLF into $GGB on every pop in $CLF. And sell 25% of my $GOLD holdings b4 CPI. Buy that 25% back after the dip when people realize J-Pow isn't raising rates more than 025 bsp with 8% inflation and the Russian/Ukraine war will end after $5 gasoline : P

Nice call. Are you in long term cap gains or still short term? Wait until the difference in cap gains tax changes to long term as that is a huge savings on taxes.

The commodity stocks are interesting and should continue to rally thru the summer. I am still kicking myself for selling 10% in $MOS yesterday and my entire $CLF position, although I still have a huge stake in $GOLD, $BP, $HAL, $EXK, $PSX, and $GGB. Alcoa has never fell below any of the DMA's though. If you are in long term cap gains territory maybe sell 10%? Sure you'll be upset like I am with $MOS if it continues to run but you'll still have 90% and you locked in some profits?

I managed a very small gain for the day thanks to Silver miners $EXK and $FSM both up over 10%. Barrick $GOLD was also up 4%. I sold out of $CLF with a 15% gain. I bought heavily into $HAL and $PSX into the close. I also opened a position in $REV and added to $GT & $GGB. I haven't bought this much in one day in over 6 months.

The entire ibovespa market trades like this. Look at GGB, PBR, VALE, BBD, ITUB, SID, ABEV. Everything in Brazil trades incredibly cheap compared to counterparts in "1st world" markets. In my opinion, equally high risk exists in the US, Canada, and Europe. They're just different types of risk, and western investors understand them better than foreign markets. So they take an unnecessarily steep discount. Russia and Africa are similar as well. Just have to be able to withstand the issues associated with area. I personally hold positions in PBR, VALE, and GGB.

TX and GGB (nearly identical metrics) are both struggling because the market overly discounts Latin America off geopolitical risk. Particularly Brazil and Venezuela, the former of which both companies have heavy presence in.

I'm personally of the opinion that the risks associated with the region have been overblown and that companies from the area trade at discounts that are too heavy. Numerous companies there trade near or even below book value. I have said, and will say again, that South America, and in particular Brazil, is my highest conviction emerging market region. You'll need to determine if you're comfortable with the risks of a 2nd world market. Even if you decide its worth it (I have), it's unlikely that bigger money will agree with you anytime soon, so expect depressed valuations for the foreseeable future. But if you're patient and are fine taking on the risk, and just look at it as buying a good business at a fair price, the upside is strong. At least over the next 5-10 years where industrial tailwinds remain favorable.

If you aren't afraid of Brazil due to political issues (huge concern, admittedly). Gerdau ($GGB) is similar to SID. I don't know enough to say which one is better, but I'm bagholding GGB since it was over $6 in the summer.

I'm still buying. GGB and SXC are my personal holds. It's more of a long term sector, as infrastructure contracts are a multi year process.

Not surprisingly, I suck at this. Today wrecked me....but that's ok. I started off with 500 bucks and grew it to 6600 at the high....now I'm basically back where I started....

Rather than cashing it in and calling it quits, I dropped that last 500 on GGB $6 calls for march. I think they're undervalued. They're doing some pretty neat stuff with graphene and some of the other cool shit they got going on, not just steel anymore. I figured it was a nice place to park my money for a few months. Maybe I get lucky...or maybe I get bored and reload. Lol.

Catch you fellas (and ladies) in a few months:)

I only invest small amounts but here's my list:

  • UUUU - Uranium/Vanadium. Vanadium is the play for me, Uranium is a bonus.
  • GGB - Steel (will benefit from covid-relief public infrastructure and jobs programs)
  • COPX - Copper ETF, Copper price should spike. Last big spike was 2008-2009 Electrical projects, wind farms, transmission upgrades, electric motors, new home construction and HVAC upgrading for climate goals. None of it happens without copper.
  • SBSW - Just found out about them because they bought half of a mine from...
  • GSCCF - Ioneer, Australian firm with a big lithium project about to go live in the US collab with SBSW. American projects will benefit similar to the push for local petroleum production for national security/resiliency reasons especially after COVID disrupted global trade.
  • BATT - Battery ETF that has a chunk of mining holdings in addition to manufacturers etc
  • IMPUY - Platinum and other precious metals. Used for higher tech things that will be in demand
  • NMNZF - Penny stock uranium/vanadium play. Very low volume so the price is ????

You have a good head on your shoulders my man. Great job maxing inflows, and OTM CCs are a great opportunity to squeeze a few extra drops out of your holdings. Not going to get crazy going far OTM, but any inflow pays off tenfold long term.

What's your risk tolerance, and how much diversification are you looking for? I do think adding positions beyond real estate can only help you, if nothing more than as a safeguard.

I'm personally a big commodities investor. So my recommendations are going to be mining (RIO, BHP), PMs (NEM), oil (PBR, KMI, SU, CVX, USOI), or industrial (SXC, GGB). But these might incur more risk than you want.

Banking and financial (BAC, JPM) seem strong, as does consumer defensive (TGT, HD, LOW, MCD). Particularly in the latter, yield may seem low, but dividend growth should put you in an ideal position ten years down the road.

Also, r/dividends would be happy to host all your questions if you can put together a detailed overview of current situation, goals, allocations, and risk tolerance.

Here's what I'm in:

  • GGB - Steel
  • IMPUY - Precious metals
  • GSCCF - Lithium
  • UUUU - Uranium + Vanadium
  • NMNZF - Uranium/Vanadium Jr highly speculative
  • COPX - Copper ETF
  • BATT - Battery ETF with some raw materials holdings

I am bullish on all raw materials, as many countries are viewing big projects as a part of economic stimulus, as well as dealing with global warming. Vanadium is normally a steel additive but it has shown promise as a component of large scale flow batteries. I found Gerdau (GGB) as a loose connection while trying to trace opportunities around stainless steel/starship manufacturing (though most of that seems to be through privately held companies) And obviously copper because you need it to connect everything together.

I don't spend much time in Santa Clara - usually a bit north from there, though I've never had any problems through there. I've biked all over the region including tons of the peninsula/south bay, some East bay, even up across GGB and back. Most of the roads are bikeable (I kinda hate dedicated bike infrastructure because it lets city people say "look... We built it and nobody uses it" when the problem is "it doesn't go where I need to go and the roads do ... You should give those a road diet instead of building useless trails")

I'm selling GGB right now, and would look to buy as it approaches $3. CLF should gain for another few months, but I'm not high on steel as I think we are approaching the current ceiling based on the existing market.

What’s your thoughts on holding GGB as well as CLF as a steel play?

CLF = calls

Vale = high div shares

TX or GGB = low PE with room for growth plus div

i missed this train last week

however i got into another very good steel/infrastructure company $GGB at $6.40 1,500 shares....this may be a slow mover but if you do your DD then you will see strong financials, profitable cash flow+ paying dividend and still in its pullback from $7

this is also an EPS PE ratio Divergence play as EPS is rising and this stock in the past reacts nicely to this divergence....

this is not financial advice and i am not a financial advisor

good luck

If you're going Brazilian, add $SID. Better upside than $GGB and smaller market cap.

Don't forget about iron ore, which is used in steel production.

Look specifically at GGB and Vale.
