The last time we saw interest rates rise as fast… This was state of the art technology

That was 1994, when the Reserve Bank hiked rates from 4.75 to 7.5 percent … And while you could technically buy a mobile… It had no touchscreen, no apps and the battery was bigger than the phone

Right now, interest rates have surged to their highest level since 2011 – And while not nearly as high as three decades ago, many investors are still feeling the pain as the Reserve Bank tries to dampen inflation.

However, Motley Fool Chief Investment Officer, Scott Phillips says it's not all doom and gloom… saying "Just like 1994, these troubles will also pass".

In fact, Scott has shown, despite inflation and interest rate worries, there are still solid gains to be made – with some of his recommendations in his Motley Fool Share Advisor service hitting returns of 71%, 75% and 90%, in the last year alone.

And while the Share Advisor team has also picked stocks that haven't done as well (some have even lost money)…

Scott warns investors against sitting on the sidelines. "Yes, while inflation and rising rates have hit many companies – and some may even fail – top flight companies will continue to grow and even thrive. If you have any money to invest – I reckon now is not the time to be sitting on the sidelines".

To help investors Scott has put together research on three companies he says investors should seriously consider if they're looking to beat inflation.

With an enviable track record of picking winning stocks – no matter what the market is doing – Scott Phillips' inflation stocks report is a must read for any investor looking to beat rising prices.
