Discussions at the recent Group of Seven Nations meeting point to the continued development of a multipolar world, as supply chains become less global and more local. Investors should watch for opportunities in this disruption.----- Transcript -----Welcome to Thoughts on the Market. I'm Michael Zezas, Global Head of Fixed Income Research for Morgan Stanley. Along with my colleagues bringing you a variety of perspectives, I'll be talking about the recent G7 meetings and its implications for markets. It's Wednesday, May 24th at 9 a.m. in New York. Over the weekend, President Biden traveled to Japan for a meeting of the Group of Seven Nations, or G7. G7 meetings typically involve countries discussing and seeking consensus on a wide range of economic and geopolitical issues. And the consensus they achieved on several principles underscores one of our big three secular investment themes for 2023, the transition to a multipolar world. Consider some of the following language from the G7 communique. First, there's discussion of efforts to make our supply chains more resilient, sustainable and reliable. Second, they discuss, quote, "Preventing the cutting edge technologies we develop from being used to further military capabilities that threaten international peace and security." Finally, there's also discussion of the, quote, "importance of cooperation on export controls, on critical and emerging technologies to address the misuse of such technologies by malicious actors and inappropriate transfers of such technologies."So that all may sound like the U.S. is drawing up hard barriers to commerce, particularly with places like China. But importantly, the communique also states an important nuance that's been core to our multipolar world thesis. They say, quote, "We are not decoupling or turning inwards. At the same time, we recognize that economic resilience requires de-risking and diversifying.". So to understand the practical implications of that nuance, we've been conducting a ton of research across different industries. My colleagues Ben Uglow and Shawn Kim have highlighted that the global manufacturing and tech sectors are very exposed to disruption from this theme. But their work also shows that capital equipment and automation companies will benefit from the global spend to set up more robust supply chains.So bottom line, the multipolar world theme continues to progress, but the disruption it creates should also create opportunities. Thanks for listening. If you enjoy the show, please share Thoughts on the Market with a friend or colleague, or leave us a review on Apple Podcasts. It helps more people find the show.

Creating Wealth Real Estate Investing with Jason Hartman
Jason hosts Rick Sharga from C.J. Patrick Company who spoke about the current state of the economy and housing market. They discussed the cause of the resilience of the housing market despite 10 consecutive massive rate hikes. Rick stated that this is due to the large cohort of young adults currently coming of age and forming households, and the fact that people like having a roof over their head. They concluded that despite the rate hikes, the housing market is doing well. Rick discussed how demographics and the Fed funds rate increase have affected the housing market. He noted that in 2021, mortgage rates had doubled in a calendar year for the first time in history, leading to a higher cost of monthly payments for home buyers. He also mentioned how 70% of homeowners have mortgage rates of 4% or lower, which means they are not in a hurry to take on a higher rate. This is keeping inventory levels low, combined with growing demand, and causing prices to remain stable. He also noted how this is frustrating those who predicted a housing market crash. Rick Sharga and Jason Hartman discuss the current foreclosure rate, which is about half of the normal rate. They state that 93% of borrowers who are in foreclosure have positive equity. Of those 270,000 borrowers in foreclosure, 100,000 of them have 20-50% equity, 60,000 have more than 50% equity, and 20,000 have more than 75% equity. They also discuss the current state of the housing market. Mortgage rates have been increasing, but they seem to be stabilizing in a band between 6.25% and 6.75%. Existing home sales, inventory levels, new home sales, and rental pricing are all up from last year. Investor activity is also up. The Fed indicated at their last meeting that rates will remain stable until June.

Real Estate News: Real Estate Investing Podcast
In this Real Estate News Brief for the week ending May 20th, 2023... what the Fed Chief is saying about interest rates and potential rate cuts, how the FHFA is responding to a controversy over new rules for home loan fees, and why mall owners have become interested in pickleball. Hi, I'm Kathy Fettke and this is Real Estate News for Investors. If you like our podcast, please subscribe and leave us a review. Economic News We begin with economic news from this past week, and the Fed chief's response to predictions about what the central bank plans to do next. Jerome Powell spoke out at a conference at the Federal Reserve Bank of Chicago and said that Fed officials have made “no” decision yet on their next move. Many economists are expecting a pause in rate hikes, but the Fed is determined to bring inflation back down to the 2% level, no matter what. A decision would be made after the Federal Open Market Committee evaluates “all” the most recent data. (1) Powell may have also dashed a few hopes for rate cuts later this year. He says: “The data has continued to support the FOMC's view that bringing inflation down will take “some time” and that rate cuts simply are not part of the Fed's current forecast. But he also says that interest rates are currently high enough to slow economic growth, and hopefully tamp down inflation without further credit tightening. Meantime, the U.S. leading economic index, or LEI, shows a decline in April, for the 13th month in a row. The declines have pointed toward a potential recession, but so far, that hasn't happened. The index was down .6% last month with eight of the ten economic indicators showing a decline. (2) Initial jobless claims were down last week, thanks to an effort in Massachusetts to reduce fraudulent claims. They fell from 264,000 the previous week to 242,000 last week. Overall, they have been slowly rising since January. The number of continuing claims was also down by about 8,000 with about 1.8 million people collecting benefits. (3) New home construction was higher in April, thanks to an outsized demand among consumers, despite high interest rates. The government says they rose 2.2% for the month with more activity in the Midwest and the West. That's for both multi-family construction, which was up 5.2%, and single-family, which was up 1.6%. Building permits were down, however, by 1.5%. (4) The home builders confidence index also reflected a positive outlook among builders. The National Association of Home Builders say the index was up five points to a central balance point of 50 in May. Anything above 50 is positive, and below 50, negative. The reading for May is the first time it's been out of negative territory in almost a year. (5) The latest report for existing home sales is for February, and according to the National Association of Realtors, it surged 14.5% as interest rates experienced a temporary dip. It was the biggest monthly increase since July of 2020 when sales skyrocketed 22.4%. NAR says that single-family sales are currently at their highest level since the association started tracking them in 1999. (6) Mortgage Rates Mortgage rates are still moving sideways. Freddie Mac says the 30-year fixed-rate mortgage was up just 4 basis points, to 6.39%. The 15-year was unchanged at 5.75%. (7) In other news making headlines... FHFA Rescinds New DTI Fee Structure The FHFA is rethinking its controversial new up-front fee structure for single-family home loans which placed more importance on a borrower's debt-to-income ratio than it did on credit score. The government finance agency has now rescinded the new fee structure for Fannie and Freddie loans, and is asking for input on the goals and policy priorities that the FHFA should pursue in regards to an upgrade of the pricing framework. (8) When the FHFA announced the previously upgraded pricing structure, there was an outcry from real estate organizations, including the Mortgage Bankers Association, the National Association of Realtors, and others. It kinda blew up in the media, because it appeared to raise the fees for people with higher credit scores while lowering fees for low income borrowers, and gave the appearance of an unfair fee subsidy. The FHFA denies that the fee structure was based on the idea of a subsidy. But it is now accepting feedback from the public on how to adjust the fee structure to better reflect loan risk in order to protect Fannie and Freddie against those risks, and without unnecessary expense for borrowers, especially those struggling with affordability issues. Mall Owners Filling Empty Stores with Pickleball Courts! Mall owners have a new strategy to fill vacant stores and attract more people. They are turning to the fast-growing sport of pickleball, and replacing shuttered stores like Bed, Bath, and Beyond with pickleball courts! (9) The combination satisfies a need on both sides as consumers gravitate toward locations that offer fun, social experiences and not just a place to shop. Malls have already been incorporating things like theaters, arcades, and amusement parks into their shopping locations. So now, they are adding pickleball, and other experience-based activities like skydiving and virtual golf. Pickleball is currently the nation's fastest growing sport. As reported by CNN and the Sports & Fitness Industry Association, it's up 159% over three years to 8.9 million players in 2022. That's it for this episode of the Real Estate News for Investors.

A Senate hearing on recent bank failures turned into a prickly confrontation between bank executives and lawmakers. Former leadership for Silicon Valley, Signature, and First Republic Banks were hammered by lawmakers about why their banks collapsed. And there wasn't a lot of agreement on the cause. Bank executives blamed the government and the media, while lawmakers blamed mismanagement and greed. Hi, I'm Kathy Fettke and this is Real Estate News for Investors. Please remember to subscribe to this podcast and leave us a review. Silicon Valley Bank made the biggest splash as the first bank to fall with about $210 billion in assets. Signature bank had about $110 billion when it was seized by regulators. They were the third and fourth largest banks in the U.S. so their failures raised huge concerns about the impact on the entire financial system. First Republic went south and teetered for a few months after it lost billions in deposits, and was largely taken over by JPMorgan. SVB CEO Blamed a Series of “Unprecedented Events” In a joint session before the Senate Banking Committee, former Silicon Valley Bank CEO Greg Becker pointed a finger at the federal government, saying the bank's failure was the result of a series of “unprecedented events.” He testified that: “With near zero-percent interest rates and the largest government sponsored economic stimulus in history, more than $5 trillion in new deposits flooded into commercial banks. By the end of 2020, SBV had grown 63 percent over the prior year, and in 2021, SVB's assets grew another 83 percent to $212 billion.” (1) He also pointed out that during the pandemic, when inflation started to become an issue, the Federal Reserve insisted that inflation was “transitory” and that interest rates would remain low. Massive Bank Run at SVB The bank's collapse largely happened after a decision to invest more than half of the bank's loan portfolio into fixed-income Treasury securities, when interest rates were low. They are considered “low risk” but they are also impacted by interest rate hikes. When interest rates blew up to fight inflation, the value of SVB's portfolio shrank and that forced the bank to sell at a $2 billion loss. When news spread about the bank's situation, depositors became concerned about accessing their funds and the bank experienced a massive bank run. Media Misconceptions Becker also blamed the media for comparing the March 8th failure of Silvergate Bank to Silicon Valley Bank. He told lawmakers that the two banks had completely different business models, and said: “Rumors and misconceptions quickly spread online, culminating on March 9th with the first-ever social media bank run leading to more than $42 billion in deposits being withdrawn from SVB in 10 hours, or $1 million every second.” Two More Dominoes to Fall Former Signature Bank Chairman Scott Shay was miffed that his bank was seized by New York State regulators on March 12th. He insisted that the bank would have survived that bank run. He argued: “We were at all times solvent and well-capitalized, and even with the sale of our available-for-sale securities, we still would have remained well capitalized.” Former First Republic CEO Mike Roffler also blamed social media and news stories for inciting panic among depositors along with technology that allows for fast-paced digital withdrawals. Roffler told lawmakers: “The contagion spread very quickly and panic is very hard to control.” (2) Lawmakers Blame Mismanagement, Greed But lawmakers also took the conversation in a different direction, criticizing bank leaders for millions of dollars in bonuses and personal stock sales ahead of the failures. Senator Sherrod Brown ripped into Becker saying: “Workers face consequences, executives ride off into the sunset. Only in corporate boardrooms can you run your business into the ground, take the whole economy along with you and come out ahead. We can't let that happen again.” Some lawmakers said that bank executives could have reduced the risk by hedging their portfolios, but that they, instead, placed profits ahead of safety. As explained in a Washington Post article, Silicon Valley Bank had financed short-term liabilities with long-term debt. It seemed like a no-brainer when interest rates were low, and to be fair, there was a lot of talk about interest rates remaining low for a very long time. But when the Fed started hiking rates, the value of those Treasurys went down. Lawmakers say the bank could have swapped those longer-term notes for one with shorter-terms that match the duration of the bank's liabilities. But they say the banks didn't do that because it would have been more expensive. (3) Sharp Words from Some Senators The session became downright nasty at times. Senator John Kenney of Louisiana had sharp words for what he called SVB's “stupidity.” He told Becker: “You made a really stupid bet that went bad, didn't ya? And the taxpayers of America had to pick up the tab for your stupidity, didn't they?” (4) He continued saying: “No, this wasn't unprecedented. This was bone-deep, down-to-the-marrow stupid. You put all your eggs in one basket and unless you lived on the International Space Station you could see that interest rates were rising and that you weren't hedged.” Let's hope we've seen the last of this kind of banking madness.

Bookey App 30 mins Book Summaries Knowledge Notes and More
The Intelligent InvestorThe Intelligent Investor Full Book Introduction This book covers all the classical investment practices any stakeholder needs to know. It has been known by many as the “Stock Market Investing Bible” since it was first published in 1949. This book analyzes the difference between “investment” and “speculation,” and discusses how investors respond to market fluctuations. It also introduces the core idea of value investing, “margin of safety,” and what strategies defensive and enterprising investors should use. Author : Benjamin GrahamBenjamin Graham, an American economist and investment guru, is the founder of value investing theory. He is known as “the Dean of Wall Street” and “the Father of Modern Security Analysis”. Graham was not only Warren Buffett's research supervisor at Columbia University's Business School, but he was also regarded by Buffett as his “spiritual mentor.” Overview | Chapter 1Hi, welcome to Bookey. Today, we will unlock the book The Intelligent Investor. When it comes to stock investment, most people's first reaction will be to think of Warren Buffett, the “Oracle of Omaha.” The book we're reading today is written by Benjamin Graham, whom Buffett,referred to as his “mentor for life.” When unlocking Buffett: The Making of an American Capitalist and The Snowball: Warren Buffett and the Business of Life, we mentioned that Buffet read The Intelligent Investor in 1950 when he was 19 years old. The book struck him immediately. Not long after, Buffett enrolled in Columbia University's Business School, where he studied value investing, with Graham as his mentor. Three years after graduation, Buffett got a job at Graham's company, and during his first two years there, Buffett learned about value investing strategies and grew his wealth from $9,800 to $174,000. When Buffett read The Intelligent Investor again in 1972, he said, “I read the first edition of this book early in 1950, when I was nineteen. I thought then that it was by far the best book about investing ever written. I still think it is.” Since its initial publication in 1949, the book has been regarded as a world-renowned classic in investment practices. It has been considered a revolutionary text often referred to as the "Stock Market Investing Bible" by investment gurus such as Warren Buffett. Buffett even wrote the preface and commentary for the book. It's been 40 years since the fourth edition of this book was published, and you may be wondering if the investment strategies mentioned in the book still hold true today. In fact, Graham himself emphasized in the introduction that the book focuses more on the principles of investing and the attitudes of investors. Therefore, we can still learn a lot today from this perspective. Benjamin Graham, an American economist and investment thinker, is the founder of value investing theory. He is known as “the Dean of Wall Street” and “the Father of Modern Security Analysis”. Graham was not only Warren Buffett's research supervisor at Columbia University's Business School, but also regarded by Buffett as his “spiritual mentor” throughout his life. His security analysis theory and knowledge of the field was a tremendous shock to the investment field, affecting almost three generations of the biggest fund managers on Wall Street. Next, we will unlock the book for you from three areas: First, the fundamentals of value investing; Second, investment suggestions for defensive investors; Last, investment suggestions for enterprising investors.

Real Estate News: Real Estate Investing Podcast
In this Real Estate News Brief for the week ending May 13th, 2023... some good news about inflation, how a U.S. debt default might impact housing, and a new Gallup Poll on investor preferences. Hi, I'm Kathy Fettke and this is Real Estate News for Investors. If you like our podcast, please subscribe and leave us a review. Economic News We begin with two inflation reports from this past week. The first was a report on the Consumer Price Index for April. The CPI shows a .4% rise in consumer prices which is a slight increase from the previous month, but it brought the annual rate below 5% for the first time in two years. It hit a high of 9.1% last summer, but is now down to 4.9%. The core rate, which omits food and fuel, was also down .4%, with an annual rate of 5.5%. Shelter prices rose the most, but those prices are slowing down. It's interesting to note that the three-month annualized rate is now at 3.2%. (1) Producer prices are also coming down. The Labor Department reported a .2% increase in the Producer Price Index for April, with an annual rate of 2.3%. The PPI's core rate was also down .2% but the annual rate is a bit higher, at 3.4%. As MarketWatch reports: “Inflation is moderating at the consumer and producer levels. This is adding to market expectations that the Federal Reserve will refrain from raising interest rates further at the next meeting in mid-June.” (2) The Fed's preferred report on inflation, known as the Personal Consumption Expenditure Index or PCE, will play a big role in what the Fed does next. That's coming out at the end of this month. Weekly jobless claims were a surprise on the upside, with 240,000 people filing for benefits. They were 22,000 higher than they were for the previous week. Economists had only expected an increase of 3,000. That's the highest number of claims since October of 2021. The numbers have been steadily rising since January, for a total of 1.81 million continuing claims. Higher numbers indicate a softening of the job market and slower wage growth which the Fed wants to see in its fight against inflation. (3) Mortgage Rates Mortgage rates are still idling in the lower 6% range. Freddie Mac says the 30-year fixed-rate mortgage was down four basis points to 6.35% this last week. The 15-year was down one point to 5.75%. (4) Freddie Mac's chief economist, Sam Khater, says: “A recent sideways trend in mortgage rates is a welcome departure from the record increases of last year.” (5) In other news making headlines… Mortgage Rates Would Skyrocket if U.S. Defaults on Debt As lawmakers haggle over the debt ceiling, there's concern about what would happen if they don't come to an agreement and the government defaults. According to Zillow, it would have a devastating impact on the housing market, with mortgage rates potentially rising to 8.4%. That would increase a typical mortgage payment by 22%. (6) Zillow says if mortgage rates get to the 8% level, existing home sales could fall from April's 4.3 million to around 3.3 million in September. That's a 23% drop. Zillow's senior economist, Jeff Tucker, acknowledges that a default is “unlikely” but if it did happen, he says it would send the housing market into a “deep freeze.” It is hoped that President Joe Biden and Speaker of the House Kevin McCarthy will hammer out a deal by June 1st. In a Bloomberg interview, Treasury Secretary Janet Yellen said: “There is no satisfactory solution for the U.S. that's good for the economy and financial markets other than Congress acting to raise the debt ceiling.” Fed's Rate Hikes Are Now Hurting the Housing Market Housing economists are not happy about the latest rate hike. The Fed hiked short-term rates another quarter point to a range of 5 to 5.25%. The National Association of Realtors' Lawrence Yun and the National Association of Home Builders' Robert Dietz call it “disappointing.” They say the high rates are freezing loan activity and hurting the economy. (7) They say that consumer prices have been coming down for months and the last rate hike wasn't necessary. Yun says that: “Regional banks are an important source of loans – but they are frozen.” He says: “They are shuffling their balance sheets and figuring out what to do.” Dietz says that higher rates are making it harder for developers to build homes, which are badly needed to boost inventory. He says: “We need to be building more than 1.1 million homes a year to haVe a meaningful impact on the lack of inventory.” Real Estate Still a Top Investment Choice, but Lead is Shrinking A recent Gallup poll shows that real estate is still a top investment choice, but the lead is shrinking. In 2022, 45% of the participants said that real estate is the best long-term investment. This year, that percentage shrank to just 34%. (8) Many consumers have turned to gold, which has now taken second place and pushed stocks into third. Gold was favored by 26% this year, compared to 15% last year. Stocks dropped from 24% last year to 18% this year. Savings accounts, CDs, and bonds are up slightly but they are still in fourth place. Gallup asked some of the participants about crypto, but that has lost its luster with the recent collapse of the FTX crypto exchange, and a decline in crypto prices, especially for bitcoin. Only 4% of Americans are choosing crypto. Last year, it was 8%. That's it for today. Check the show notes for links, and the “Join for Free” button to become a member of RealWealth.

What does the future of healthcare look like with AI at the centre? 2.) Models: What is Real? What is False? Why no models today will be used in a year? Why all models are biased and how do we solve for it? Why hallucinations are a feature and not a bug? Why the size of your model does not matter anymore?
