The Coming Tide of Inflation Will Send This Investment Soaring

Globally, central bankers have cut interest rates nearly 700 times since the crisis in 2008, to the point that they’re at the lowest levels in 5,000 years.

They’re doing this to boost inflation, we all know, but so far it seems the only inflation they’ve been able to create is in stocks. The S&P 500 is up more than 200% since the 2009 bottom, despite the slowest U.S. economic growth in 70 years.

But it turns out you can’t baste the global economy with $12 trillion in newly printed “funny money” without precipitating some consequences.

That inflation the bankers have been looking for for nearly a decade now is just a trickle, but I’ve got some evidence that it’s about to become more of a runaway firehose. It was headed this way even before Donald Trump vowed to weaken the dollar to boost U.S. competitiveness.

This inflationary trend is boosting one asset class in particular, ahead of most others – that’s why it’s still “unloved” and trading at a tidy discount right now.

It won’t stay that way, though…
