Inflation: Avoid ASX shares that have these 4 things

Which ASX shares should you be avoiding if you're worried about inflation? Are ASX shares like Redbubble Ltd (ASX: RBL), Cochlear Ltd (ASX: COH) and Amcor Ltd (ASX: AMC) safe?

Which ASX shares should you be avoiding if you’re worried about inflation? Are ASX shares like Redbubble Ltd (ASX: RBL), Cochlear Ltd (ASX: COH) and Amcor Ltd (ASX: AMC) safe?

In this article & video, Owen takes you through his checklist of metrics to keep an eye on.

Owen’s checklist for companies to AVOID

In Owen’s experience, the types of companies that are being hurt by inflation include those that score poorly for these metrics:

They sell discretionary products, like consumer-facing retail products such as fashion. In other words, they’re not mission-critical like software.

They don’t have intangible value wrapped around their service, such as brand equity. For example, Cochlear (ASX: COH) has brand prestige for implantable hearing aids.

The business model is sensitive to supply constraintsRedbubble (ASX: RBL) is one such company. It is facing higher input costs for t-shirts and increased shipping expenses due to fuel costs and driver availability. And it cannot pass on these costs like say, Amcor (ASX: AMC) can.

The financial position is weak. It’s weighed down by lots of debt, poor cash flow, no profits and legacies of empire-building management teams (e.g. Goodwill buried under intangibles and exploding share counts). Vocus Group (ASX: VOC) was an example of this, so was Slater & Gordon (ASX: SGH).

$50,000 per year in passive income from shares? Yes, please!

With interest rates UP, now could be one of the best times to start earning passive income from a portfolio. Imagine earning 4%, 5% — or more — in dividend passive income from the best shares, LICs, or ETFs… it’s like magic.

So how do the best investors do it?

Chief Investment Officer Owen Rask has just released his brand new passive income report. Owen has outlined 10 of his favourite ETFs and shares to watch, his rules for passive income investing, why he would buy ETFs before LICs and more.
