Here’s what my subscribers got this week.

Yesterday I offered up my risk analysis of Boeing stock and how the stock has reacted to the news of the China Eastern Airlines Corp. Boeing Co. 737-800 NG crash.

As almost everybody knows at this point, the jet plunged from about 30,000 feet, nearly straight down and killed 132 people on board. The first of two black boxes has just been recovered, but we still know little about what caused the crash.

wrote about why I thought Boeing’s stock reaction to the news was bizarre.

I also published an interview this week with geologist and fossil fuel expert Dr. Marc J. Defant, who explained, in his own words, why America’s energy policies, specifically those centered around oil and gas, are “bat shit crazy” and how the Biden administration is doing nothing but creating “turmoil” in the oil markets

Dr. Defant is a professor of geology/geochemistry at the University of South Florida. He worked for Schlumberger Well Services and Shell Oil for three years, with two years at Shell working as an exploration geologist.

“I ask you to remember,” Dr. Defant told me this week, “gasoline prices were rising quickly way before the war in Ukraine broke out not only due to Biden’s interference in our oil production but the inflation caused by his huge spending bills. Now we are going to buy oil from Iran instead of enabling our own industry to supply America’s needs. It is the very definition of “bat-shit crazy.”

On Monday, in a subscriber-only note, I wrote about why I was adding exposure to cybersecurity names for the week - a sector I have written about several times over the last few weeks. Those names moved higher during the week, following my note:

This week I also wrote about why I thought Russia was eventually going to back the Ruble with gold, likely by asking people to pay for the country’s oil using gold. Just hours after I published, a headline hit the terminal that Russia was going to allow what it perceived to be “unfriendly” countries to pay for its natural gas in gold.

Finally, I ended the week writing about a little known change in Covid data that the CDC made last week.

In a little noticed article called “CDC reports fewer COVID-19 pediatric deaths after data correction,” Reuters casually noted late last week that the CDC “corrected” and reduced death tallies in all age-groups, including children.

The adjustments were made on March 14, because the CDC’s “algorithm” was “accidentally counting deaths that were not COVID-19-related”, the report says.

Based on a precursory and rudimentary Google search, it doesn’t appear the revision got much coverage, if any, outside of Reuters’ report.

But despite the lack of coverage, the “adjustment” was meaningful.

It resulted in the removal of “72,277 deaths previously reported across 26 states, including 416 pediatric deaths,” Reuters reported.
