December 25, 2021 | Coming to America

This week is a little bit different than your usual Thoughts from the Frontline. It is Christmas Day as this is sent out, so not the time to ramble on about inflation and the markets. Instead I’ll share a story from my good friend Vitaliy Katsenelson. He immigrated to the US with his family from […]

December 24, 2021 | The Great Unwashed – We The People Are Seen as The Problem

When the people rise up against the tyranny of government, suddenly this is being fueled by populism that must be terminated. It was John Kerry at Davos who was “warning of the dangers of economic populism,” and added that politicians, like Trump, should not listen to the people. “It’s really dangerous to play to the lowest […]

December 23, 2021 | Rental Costs on the Rise Amid Diminished Supply

Demand for rentals in the US is increasing at an alarming pace. Single-family rentals rose 10.9% in October year-over-year, according to a report by CoreLogic. There are simply not enough rental properties available to meet demand. Vacancy rates are at a 25-year low as those priced out of the buyer’s market search for housing. Rentals […]

December 22, 2021 | Cryptomania: King Ponzi in a Land of Naked Emperors

I have likened truth-telling in finance to being sober in a house of addicts; when noting irrational, destructive behaviours, you are often dismissed as the problem–too dumb, critical or boring to join the party. Adoring naked emperors is a common theme.  Most now know the story of Bernie Madoff’s Ponzi, and yet, compared with many […]

December 22, 2021 | Monetary Imprudence

Christmas came early for the 69% of Canadians who own a home. The latest data released from the Canadian Real Estate Association shows national home prices inflated at the quickest pace ever, rising 25% from last year. The home price index which measures the price of a typical home in Canada now sits at $780,400, […]

December 22, 2021 | Fear May Drive Silver More Than 60% Higher In 2022

As the US and global markets rattle around over the past 60+ days, many traders have failed to identify an incredible opportunity setting up in both Gold and Silver. Historically, Silver is extremely undervalued compared to Gold right now. In fact, Gold has continued to stay above $1675 over the past 12+ months while Silver […]

December 21, 2021 | The Two Paths to Build Back Better

We must understand that the idea that ONLY a war will achieve this goal of a one-world government goes hand-in-hand with this theory that Marxism would have worked if it spread to Europe and the United States – not just Russia and China. That historical view of looking at the past through rose-colored glasses is absurd. Communism […]

December 21, 2021 | A World Long on Risk is Short on Cash

After a rough couple of weeks, the risk trade is bouncing.  While those in the business of selling us risk (in exchange for our cash ‘trash’) advise that investing requires bravery, the truth is that risk management, discipline, and math-based assessments are the best predictors of longer-term financial outcomes.  Unfortunately, discipline and realism tend to […]

December 20, 2021 | Why Austrian School of Economics is Outdated

QUESTION: Marty; would you comment on David Stockman’s insistence that the fundamental consequence of 30 years of Fed-fueled financial asset inflation is that the prices of stocks and bonds have way overshot the mark. Thank you HW ANSWER: David Stockman was the Director of the Office of Management and Budget (1981–1985) under President Ronald Reagan. He is […]

December 20, 2021 | Michael Pento: The Great Reconciliation Of Asset Prices

From Pento Portfolio Strategies:  The coming new year will be fraught with risk due to the removal of central bank and government supports. This could very likely lead to the collapse of the most overvalued stock market in history. According to the Conference Board, US economic growth is set to slow from 5.5% annual growth […]

December 19, 2021 | Winter’s Arrival on Wall Street May Have to Wait

The bull market’s agitated death dance continued last week, challenging bulls and bears alike to sell the dips for a rare change. The E-Mini S&Ps seemed to promise the perfect opportunity for this as the week shuddered to a close. On Thursday the futures trapped bulls with a short-squeeze spike overnight on the usual zero volume. They […]

December 19, 2021 | What If The Rest Of The World Tightens And The U.S. Doesn’t

So the Fed, confronted with 6% official (~ 12% actual) inflation, steps right up and … promises a few quarter-point interest rate hikes not today, but at some indeterminate dates in 2022. Even if it follows through — a big if based on recent history — the U.S. will still find itself with negative real […]

December 19, 2021 | Inflation by the Numbers

Milton Friedman famously said inflation is “always and everywhere a monetary phenomenon.” He was right but that short statement doesn’t fully explain how inflation works. It has other causes, too. The period in which he did his most famous research showed inflation was clearly a monetary phenomenon, but I’m not sure he would make the […]
