Uranium: "The Most Asymmetric Trade I've Seen In My Life"

Real VisionFebruary 25, 2021
Lyn Alden, founder of Lyn Alden Investment Strategy, welcomes Marcelo Lopez, managing partner at L2 Capital Partners, for a deep-dive on Uranium both as an energy source as well as an asset class. A former engineer, Lopez has built a model mapping every Uranium mine on earth and shares with Alden why he thinks supply will be constrained for years to come. Alden highlights the key role nuclear power will play in the global transition away from fossil fuels, particularly in countries like India, where three quarters of all energy is produced from coal. Lopez insists that, in the world of ETFs, $URNM is a much better alternative than $URA, but notes that active research and security selection will yield the best results. Lastly, Alden and Lopez comment on the uncorrelated nature of Uranium to other macro cycles and how this is beneficial within a portfolio. Filmed on February 22, 2021. Key learnings: Lopez argues that Uranium offers the most asymmetric trade he has ever seen in his lifetime. The market cap of all Uranium equities amounts to roughly $20 Billion dollars, Lopez notes, so an investor can buy all of a key power source for about 1/35th the valuation of Tesla.

Hidden Inflation Rears Its Head in Housing
Nick Halaris, president of Metros Capital, returns to Real Vision to give an update of the real estate market -- from the boom in residential housing to the struggles of impaired commercial properties. In this interview with Real Vision’s Jack Farley, Halaris attributes the surge in housing prices to a hidden form of inflation that is not captured in the Consumer Price Index (CPI) and that is facilitated by quantitative easing from central banks, a process that he terms “quantitative transmission.” Halaris explains why he thinks gold and Bitcoin will triumph over bonds in this inflationary environment and shares the generational importance of these assets. Lastly, he breaks down the prospects as he sees them of commercial properties such as malls, hotels, and offices. Filmed on April 14, 2021. Key learnings: The pandemic has caused a paradigm shift in how Americans view housing, and as such, Halaris thinks the boom in residential real estate will continue. On the commercial side, Halaris is much more bearish. He thinks inflation will run hot and therefore is highly constructive on assets such as gold and Bitcoin.

Will Dogecoin's Eye-Popping Surge Test the Fed's Resolve?
In the first segment, Real Vision managing editor Ed Harrison and Jack Farley investigate the challenges the Federal Reserve faces as speculative fervor reaches a fever pitch in Dogecoin as well as the ultimate fate of the yield curve.

Meb Faber: A Framework for Outperformance
Jason Buck of the Mutiny Fund welcomes Mebane Faber, co-founder and chief investment officer of Cambria Investments, for an in-depth conversation on the methods diligent investors can use to build and maintain wealth in all market environments. Faber breaks down his rigorous quantitative models to share fresh insights on bonds, equities, real estate, and commodities as well as the role these assets play within a portfolio. Faber and Buck discuss the importance of negatively correlated assets such as put options, which are a key feature of the Cambria Tail Risk ETF ($TAIL). Key learnings: Equity valuations are stretched thin, but buying at all-time highs has historically yielded surprisingly good returns. Faber thinks non-U.S. stocks are underrepresented in the typical U.S. portfolio and argues that for most individual investors, steady contributions to their portfolio matter much more than eking out that extra percentage of return.
