C3 Curation Process (Mid-April)
Below are the assets that turned up in the latest C3 curation process. For those who don’t know, the C3 curation process is the Steak, Veggies, Potatoes, Bread and Ice Cream of what we do here at C3. Wee scour the Investment world day-in and day-out to find what investments are being talked about/recommended by top analysts, firms, and influencers. Once we gather assets that have some sort of consensus among top market players, we put them through our Ethical Screening Process (A Lot of research!!!) and into this digestible report for you, our valued C3 subscribers!
The assets that make into our report our not investment recommendations by C3, they are investment recommendations by other sources that C3 has put through ethical screening tests.
Enjoy and remember to spend time in prayer with our Lord Jesus Christ and speak with friend sand family before making any major financial decisions.
- GOLD = Passed the C3 ethical screening process
- PURPLE = NUETRAL Rating from C3
- RED = Failed the C3 ethical screening process
Souther Copper Corporation (SCCO) – A copper, Zinc and Silver development and production company. Copper is just one element that is being talked about a lot lately. Everything from inflation to the EV craze, the war in Ukraine has certain elements popping in price. If you’re not familiar with trading futures and that world seems intimidating then you might want to think of buying into SCCO, which passed the c3 ethical screening test. However, even though a lot of players are talking about SCCO, very few are sold on it. This play is risky and more needs to be found out about where the inflation is going and where the EV industry stands on the global market before more confident verdicts can be delivered.
Steinway Pianos – Potential IPO – The famous family Piano Maker wants to and plans to go public. The company is over 160 years old, and it was acquired by Paulson & Co. in 2013. Paulson & Co. is not publicly traded but it is an esteemed venture capital/investment banking firm. Paulson & Co. associate are historic republican donors. Keep an eye out for the Piano IPO and show them some love if you are a lover of music.
Bitcoin (BTC) – Always a nerve-racking roller coaster with Crypto! If you have been following C3 for a while, then you know our take on the morality of BTC and other major Cryptos. The Decentralization aspect is a plus, but it comes with its cons. The worshipping of BTC as an idol is a big issue and so is the amount of energy it takes to mine it. However, the ever-increasing tech behind crypto has been making it harder for criminals to use on the black market where cash is still king.
BTC made it onto the C3 radar once again this past week because of the dip it has experienced and the fact that whales are still holding if not buying more. Whales are major players who hold the majority of the digital currency. You could author a book about any given week in the Crypto market, but C3 believes that prices today will look like steals in the long-term (Think 5 to 10 years).
Compound (COMP)/ Polygon (MATIC)/ Solana (SOL)/Shiba Inu (SHIB) – All of these cryptos are no available on the popular trading platform Robinhood. Since being listed on Robinhood, COMP is up about 12%, MATIC +1%, SOL -2.5%, and SHIB +6.5%. Financially speaking, SHIB is the interesting one here. It is a meme coin, but ETH whales have started buying it up.
Ethically speaking, none of these newly listed cryptos are used on the black market in large sums in comparison to BTC or Cash. SOL is the one out of the 4 that uses the most energy to mine, but it is no where close to that of the energy used to mine BTC and ETH. At the end of the day mor research needs to be conducted and more time needs to pass to really reveal whether these cryptos are a good Christian investment.
If you want to diversify your Crypto holding and hedge against inflation, it has never been easier since Robinhood is offering commission free trading. C3 is not an affiliate of Robinhood in anyway but we like to call out free opportunities to our subscribers.
The Chemours company (CC) – CEO Action for Diversity & Inclusion – despite the misguided actions of the CC CEO, Chemours is a company that C3 feels good about. They seem to be financially strong, and our ticking back up towards all-time highs in stock price and they stay focused on business and not social and political issues. One social issue they are focused on is that of producing more people to work in the STEM fields. STEM fields are in desperate need of qualified workers and educators and CC is trying to make that happen through some generous but ultimately self-preserving donation dollars.
The C3 team is not big fans of ETF’s typically speaking because when there are so many chefs in kitchen, more than a few of them are bound to be bad cooks. However, the BATT and the LIT ETF are a bit of an exception to this general rule. The only real troubling company that both ETF’s hold is Tesla and Tesla really is not all bad. They just routinely show support for certain LGBT talking points. Tesla also does quite a bit of good like fighting for Law enforcement and promoting STEM field education.
The below two ETFS are not only palatable from a moral standpoint, but they can be a way for investors to get in on the action that could be coming to the EV industry. Cobalt, Lithium, and Nickel are going to be treated like Gold and Silver in the future because of them playing a crucial role in the EV industry soup. Battery prices are set to go up according to Rivian CEO RJ Scaringe and we don’t see any reason to disagree with him.
Global X Lithium & Battery Tech ETF (LIT) – LGBT Legislation Support by Tesla
Amplify Lithium & Battery Tech ETF (BATT) – LGBT Legislation Support by Tesla
Twitter (TWTR) – LGBT Legislation Support, LGBTI Equality Partner, Free Speech Censorship, Left Wing Political Support/Donations, and supporter of Transgender Bathroom Bills. – Twitter made it into the C3 curation process this week because of the Elon Musk hullabaloo. However, C3 analysts are not all that bullish on Twitter from a strictly financial standpoint, so a lot of twitter talk seems to just be reactionary sentiment.
Citigroup (C) – LGBT Philanthropy, LGBT Legislation Support, Abortion Promotion, Abortion Travel Expenses, Planned Parenthood Support, and Equality Act Support. Citigroup is just the worst when it comes to morals, but they are doing well financially. The big C is one of the only banks to beat earnings expectations and this obviously has analysts very bullish on Citigroup.
Atlassian Corporation (TEAM) – LGBT Legislation Support & Abortion Support – This software hosting service company is getting buy recommendations from all over the place but it failed the C3 ethical screening process outright due to its support of certain LGBT legislation and the support it lends to the practice of Abortion.
