The Financial Outlook for Personal Investors: How to protect your portfolio against inflation's return
Have you seen what's happening to second-hand car prices? Tim Price, director of Price Value Partners, is convinced that inflation is returning and feels he has the most compelling investment opportunity of his entire life. He argues that investors should be inflation-proofing their portfolios and he discusses types of shares, sectors and countries that should fare better than others. He suggests value rather than growth stocks with an emphasis on companies extracting or highly-linked to commodities (at their cheapest in 60 years) while he favours Asia (though not China) and, in particular Vietnam and Japan. If the market falls out of bed, wise investors will have ensured they have available funds to take advantage of the fact that quality investments will be even cheaper than now.

This Is Money: Will the government pay out on the triple lock if it means an 8% state pension rise?
The triple lock has always been a hot potato but things have stepped up another gear as it could deliver a bumper 8% state pension increase due to a statistical quirk. The state pension pledge means that payouts rise by the greatest of inflation, wage growth or 2.5%. Yet, wage growth numbers are being skewed this year because the Covid crash a year ago saw millions put on furlough on a maximum of 80% of earnings, workers suffer temporary pay cuts, and many lose their jobs. Job cuts disproportionately hit the low paid and continue to do so, taking them out of the figures and bumping up the average wage, workers coming back from furlough are seeing pay go back up to their full amount, and short-term pay cuts have been reversed. All this makes average wage growth look artificially high, despite many public and private sector workers suffering pay freezes or negligible rises. The Office for Budget Responsibility forecast that distortion could lead to an 8% wage growth figure in the month the triple lock reading is taken from, delivering a £14 weekly increase to the state pension and £3billion bill. Is it fair for pensioners to get a bumper increase based on a distortion caused by the pay pain suffered by workers in lockdown? Some say ‘no’, others say ‘stick to the deal’. Tanya Jefferies, Georgie Frost and Simon Lambert look at what is causing the triple lock anomaly and what the Government might do. Will they pay up or fudge it? Also this week, the painful cases of those who cannot afford funerals for loved ones, the return of gazumping to the property market, and finally, the crazy NatWest banking rule that has forced a reader to have their employer’s bank accounts mixed with theirs in online banking

In the wake of Matt Hancock's resignation, he raises renewed concerns about those people who advise our senior politicians.

The Financial Outlook for Personal Investors: Why we shouldn't trust central bankers' views on inflation
For Tim Price, director of Price Value Partners, the only story in town at the moment is inflation. He places little trust in the view of central bankers that the inflation now being seen will be temporary. With the massive rise of government, corporate and consumer debt in so many countries, he considers the situation extremely dangerous and likely to worsen quickly. Although painting a pessimistic picture, he promises next week to suggest some positive moves worried investors can make to protect themselves.
