The market rally this year has been impressive. However, last week uncertainty and volatility returned to markets. The S&P 500 was down 1.1% on the week, its worst week of the year thus far. The Nasdaq posted a steeper decline of 2.4%, while the Dow slipped about 0.1%. Markets seem to be approaching somewhat of a crossroads: Does the rally continue unabated, or does volatility build?
The latest inflation reports will be in the spotlight this week. A Consumer Price Index report scheduled for release on Tuesday will show whether the recent moderation in inflation extended into January. In December, inflation rose at an annual rate of 6.5%, marking the smallest year-over-year increase since October 2021. Earnings season will continue to wind down with reports from The Coca-Cola Company, Airbnb, DoorDash, Marriott International, Cisco Systems, and Paramount Global, among others.
Gold prices have ripped higher over the past few months, and experts expect momentum to continue amid heightened recession concerns. It may be a bumpy year, but the overall outlook for gold in 2023 is positive. Investors looking to expand their precious metals position would do well to include operations with smaller market caps for their growth potential and as portfolio diversifiers. Our first recommendation for the week is low-priced gold stocks that seem well-positioned for the next leg up.

CF is a good value at 5.2 times earnings compared to the US Chemicals industry average of 14.5 times earnings. With its low 9.1% payout ratio, CF’s 1.9% dividend is reliable and thoroughly covered by earnings.

A company with 400 million ‘patents’
One company has quietly compiled more than 400 million official trade secrets.
Trade secrets are like patents in that they protect valuable and proprietary information…
But unlike patents, trade secrets take less time to register… and more importantly, they never expire.
Which is a huge advantage for this little-known company.
You see, this company is using these trade secrets to build the world’s largest “codebase,” which will bethe key to it becoming “America’s Next Big Monopoly.”
Not surprisingly, Wall Street is starting to take notice. And the smart money is already pouring in.
Tech investor Cathie Wood has invested over $80 million already, and Microsoft founder Bill Gates has invested as well.

Pure Storage (PSTG)
Software stocks were among the market’s biggest losers in 2022 amid drastic shifts in Fed policy. But amid signs of cooling inflation over the past few months, the pace of interest rate hikes has slowed. With inflation collapsing, it seems likely that interest rates will continue falling through 2023. If they do, then it could be up, up, and away for certain software stocks, such as our next recommendation.
The next-generation data storage market is predicted to grow by 8.5% to $81 billion by 2025. All-flash data storage hardware and software products developer Pure Storage has upward solid top and bottom-line results, a healthy balance sheet, and growing cash flow. PSTG investors benefit from its subscription-based model, which is now at over $1 billion in annual recurring revenue. With a growing customer base in a market with substantial long-term growth potential, investors may want to take a bullish stance on this company.
