Bubbles can go on a long time

Jim Rogers is Bullish and Bearish on the following....

"I am most bullish on probably agriculture commodities, Russian government bonds in roubles, Chinese shares, Japanese shares. Some of these assets are depressed and have a chance to rise.

I am most bearish on FANG (Facebook, Amazon, Netflix, Google) stocks in America. They cannot skyrocket from here. They are certainly turning into a bubble. Just because I said I am not optimistic, doesn’t mean I am going to sell them short, because bubbles really do strange things."

Tiger Brokerage now valued over $1 Billion


An online brokerage in China has become the newest Chinese unicorn. 

Tiger Brokers, backed by Jim Rogers, said its latest fundraising round had valued it over US $1 billion.  A unicorn is a privately held start-up company with a current valuation of US$1 billion or more.

The company successfully closed a US$80 million Series C financing, bringing the company’s valuation to US$1.06 billion, the Chinese fintech stock brokerage said in a press release. The latest round was a co-investment led by Prospect Avenue Capital (PAC), Orient Hontai Capital and Oceanpine Capital.

The Fed doesnt know what it is doing

US Fed Chairman Jerome Powell seems to be optimistic on the current state of the US economy and has recently said the economy is "in a good place". His predecessor Janet Yellen had taken interest rates to historically record lows.

"The Fed doesn't know what it is doing. The central bank throws the interest rate to the lowest level in recorded history. The American central bank has increased its balance sheet by 500 percent in ten years. Historically, it is impossible. So what the American central bank has done is incomprehensible in historical terms. This is like an experiment. I hope it's going to work. They're going to find out it's not going to work."



On interest rates 

"The interest rate should go much, much higher. The interest rate has gone to the lowest level in recorded human history. This has been totally absurd and it has never happened before because the bureaucrats don't know what they are doing. We are all going to pay horrible price to bring it back to normal. A lot of people are going to go bankrupt. I hope I'm not one of them."

Trade Wars hurt more people than they help

Trade wars may seem appealing to politicians but could be a lose lose situation for the majority of people involved. Jim Rogers reveals his thoughts in a recent interview.


"I'm against trade wars. In the end, it causes a loss of trade for everybody. So for instance, the U.S. says we are going to put a tariff on steel and aluminum, so then the price of steel and aluminum goes up. There are a few thousand people who make steel and aluminum; they're going to have more prosperity. But to 300 million Americans who use steel and aluminum, if we buy a refrigerator or a lamp, the price for everything will go higher because now we have these tariffs. Yes, a few thousand people are better off. But 300 million people are worse off, plus all the other people all over the world too."

Huge economic opportunity for South Korea if North Korea opens up

Jim Rogers is optimistic that if North Korea would open up their economy, it would help South Korea and make South Korea one of the most exciting countries over the next 10 to 20 years.

"Many of your trading partners are going to suffer. But you have this opening up, and if you remember what happened in China as it opened and changed, that is going to happen here and you will be the major beneficiary." 


"North Korea has lots of disciplined, educated, very cheap labor and a lot of natural resources. And [South Korea] has lots of capital, management ability and expertise."

Japan VS Korea

Jim Rogers talks on why Japan may suffer economically if North and South Korea unite.

"Japanese companies want to invest in North Korea but Japan is against it because Japan cannot compete with a united Korea. A united Korea has 80 million people on the Chinese border, lots of cheap, disciplined, educated labor, huge natural resources, lots of capital, and lots of expertise."

"Japan has declining population and huge internal debt but they don't have cheap labor anymore so Japan doesn't want unification. Japan would do everything it can to fight it. They would use every excuse"

We are going to have a Trade War. Nobody has won a Trade War.

Topics discussed:

-Long agriculture thesis and the average age of a farmer matters. Someone has to be a farmer.

-Stock market index investing is a lazy man's tool, even Jim Rogers uses them. Indexing is valuable but could distort stock prices of stocks within the index. Stocks that are not in the index could be hidden gems, if you can find them.

- China has issues with water supplies, pollution, and the ratio of men to women. Anything in short supply increases in value. Status of women could go through the roof.

- President Trump seems to be keen on Trade Wars and we are going to have a Trade War. President Trump seems to believe that Trade Wars are a solution to many problems. So you should be worried.

-And others......

Some world markets Jim Rogers is watching currently

Jim Rogers in an recent interview says that he was watching markets in Vietnam, China, Korea, Japan among others. As an investor he likes to 'Buy Low Sell High', and would prefer to buy markets like Japan which is 50 percent off its all time highs.

"Vietnam is doing very well right now. I prefer the bad things that are hated. But there are big changes in the country, and it’s right on the Chinese border. It’s a country of 90 million people, educated, disciplined, hardworking. They call themselves Communist, but take that with a grain of salt.

I’m trying to figure out about Korea. It’s a place that’s going to be very exciting soon, if it’s not already starting. Nigeria, Kazakhstan.

Again, China. I’m looking for investments in China. China’s market is 40 percent below its all-time high. Japan is 50 percent below its all-time high. I’d much prefer China and Japan to, say, America and Germany. You know, these are markets that are near all-time highs."

Jim Rogers is long term bullish on China

Setbacks in life and in investing can and do happen. Jim Rogers talks about what could be some potentially good long term investments even though there is the possibility of corrections in those markets.

"If you sold U.S. stocks in 1916, you’d have looked smart for a year or two. But over the past century, of course, the U.S. has been the big story. And in coming decades, China will continue to emerge. It’s going to be the big story. So with that kind of time horizon I’d be looking to buy shares of Chinese companies, and looking past the challenges that China is facing now and will continue to face in coming months.

Five hundred years ago, the Spanish and the Portuguese started sailing around the world, changed geography. Two hundred years ago, we found the railroad, changed geography. In America, there’s a city called Chicago, everybody’s heard of Chicago. But Chicago is only there because of the railroad. Denver, a big city in Colorado, is only there because of the railroad. The railroad, for example, totally changed world geography.

The Chinese are doing the same now with One Belt One Road. Some people are going to make vast fortunes. If you’re left out, you’re going to disappear and nobody will ever hear of you.

I live in Singapore. And Singapore’s going to have problems because much of what will be transported is going to go around Singapore. Part of Singapore’s key to success in the past 50 years is its port. As Asia started booming, this port became the most important port in the world.

Well, now it’s not going to be the most important port in the world. So some people are going to suffer, some people are going to boom. Kazakhstan, Central China, many places are going to actually boom now because of this. Figure out where and you’ll get rich. You get the wrong places, nobody will ever hear of you. There are cities in America that nobody ever heard of because they disappeared – because the railroad went the other way."

Optimistic on agriculture specially in Russia and China

"Agriculture I’m very optimistic about worldwide, especially in China and especially in Russia. You see Mr Trump is making China great again, he’s making Russia great again. He claims he’s making America great again, but his trade wars are actually helping other people more than America. So I would certainly go agriculture worldwide, certainly in China, in Russia, probably even in Australia too. But I’m keen on Australia, I’m keen on Russia, I may buy more Japanese shares in the next rally whenever it comes. The Japanese market is down nearly 50 per cent from its all-time high, the US market is near to its all-time high. So I prefer to buy things that are cheap, rather than things that are near all-time highs."

Invest in what you know about

"If you’re going to invest, be sure you invest in things that you know about, because there’s going to be very very difficult times and a lot of people are going to lose a lot of money, but I’m not one of them. Just stay with what you know and if you don’t know anything, just put your money in the bank and wait. Probably if you put your money in the bank you’ve got in the right currency, I happen to think the US dollar is going to be the best currency for a while. Then it’s going to turn into a nightmare by two or three years, but in the meantime, I would put money into the US dollar, in the bank, if you don’t know what else to do. But just stay with what you know, don’t listen to me."

Trade wars could be in the horizon

"Mr Trump has promised several times that he wants a trade war and the people around him, and the ones he he’s gathering more and more of are very much in favor of trade wars. So I’m afraid that it’s going worse over the next couple of years and when things get worst, Mr Trump will try even more trade wars. You should start getting worried and you should start getting prepared, because before this is over, we’re going to have a very bad bear market."

Asian markets are more attractive at the moment than Western markets

Jim Rogers speaks to Platts on various topics. Read excerpts below.


Oil
"In my view oil is making a complicated bottom. And then oil will be going higher. Known reserves of oil continue to decline, except for fracking. But fracking, that bubble could pop." 

Gold, Silver
"Precious Metals I'm waiting for a decline. Before this is over Gold and Silver are going into their own very overpriced markets. When people lose confidence in governments and money, they buy Gold and Silver."

China
"My best overall market is the Chinese market. It is still 40 percent below its all time high. Japanese Markets is 50 percent off its all time high. I own several Asian markets. Those valuations are much lower on a historical basis than Western markets. If the Western markets are going to go up, the Asian markets are going to go up even more."


Cryptocurrencies and Blockchain
"Blockchain is going to happen one way or the other. Cyber currencies, I think most of them will probably not survive. There is no question that money is going to be on the internet in the future. In China, they don't have money anymore. I tried to buy ice cream the other day; I only had money. The lady couldn't take money and I didn't have the card, so she gave me the ice-cream."

Future demand and supply imbalances in agricultural commodities may drive prices higher

Jim Rogers on why Agriculture is set to go higher and why we may see rising inflationary data.

“We are already seeing inflation in many places and many products, [but] most governments lie about it. They have a reason to lie about it. Prices are going up and it is going to get worse. In the past three or four years, inflation has been covered up by the [fall in] crude oil prices, which have come down so much. It is the single most important thing in the cost of living."

“When agricultural prices [start] going higher and oil is also going higher. Yes, we are going to suffer [from high inflation]."
