Matt Hibbard

Matt Hibbard is Money Morning’s income specialist. With nearly three decades in the markets, Matt has traded just about every asset class there is. The one thing that has stuck with him over this time is a very simple premise. That is, it’s the cash a company generates that ultimately determines its value. Sure, some stocks might fly away to multi-digit gains. But unless these companies can convert the ‘story’ into real money, the market will eventually find them out. And when that happens, the share price quickly falls back to Earth. Matt is also the editor of Options Trader, where he shows subscribers how to use basic options strategies to generate income. This is income they can generate on top of regular dividend payments. Matt doesn’t play the prediction game, where the aim is to be proven ‘right’. Instead, his goal is to generate as much income as he can for his subscribers, irrespective of whether the market is going up or down.

Who Wants to Be the Teacher’s Pet?

The ANZ Bank led the charge after the RBA’s announcement. ANZ’s decision to come out so early with their announcement was, depending on your view, either foolhardy or brave. For both the CBA and NAB, it was a pat on the head from the Treasurer. A sign that they were toeing the line.
