That’s how mining magnate Robert Friedland sized up the coming copper boom. He’s not alone either. Goldman Sachs recently said copper is its “favorite” commodity. Copper is already moving too. Copper posted its best quarterly price move in over a decade. Odds of a downturn are low. As Bloomberg recently noted, “[copper] supply worries mount.”
Worried a crash is coming? Most investors sure are. They see an untenable disconnect between stocks and the economy. And to be honest, they’re not wrong in what they see. Major stock indices are almost back to their pre-pandemic highs. And this week we got official economic data that shows the economy is well below 2008 levels of awful. So worries of a stock market crash do make sense. However, that’s not the case at all.
