Chevron (CVX) And Horizon Kinetics ETF (INFL) As Inflation Trades

Andrew Wang returned to Market Overtime with Nicole Petallides to discuss the impact of rising inflation on your long-term portfolio.

Since June of last year, commodities have rallied in a big way, as seen in the prices of copper, soybeans, corn, and oil. When investing for the long-term, it is important to be diversified. That includes owning stocks that are beneficiaries of rising inflation. Even if you think inflation is likely, though, it is not guaranteed.

Chevron (CVX)
  • After losing a staggering $5.5 billion in 2020, Chevron should return to profitability in 2021.
  • Strong balance sheet and low production costs left it in a better financial position after last year’s oil price collapse.
  • Allocating excess cash toward paying down debt, growing the dividend, and buying back shares.
  • Raised quarterly dividend to $1.34 per share per quarter, representing its 34th consecutive annual increase.

Horizon Kinetics Inflation Beneficiaries ETF (INFL)

  • Actively managed exchange traded fund.
  • Seeks long-term growth of capital in real, inflation-adjusted terms.
  • Own 20 to 60 domestic and foreign equity securities of companies that are expected to benefit, either directly or indirectly, from rising prices of real assets.
  • Expense ratio of 0.85%.
