You Are HereGood morning.
The Carolina Panthers has agreed to pay offensive lineman Russell Okung partly in cash, but also partly to mobile payment firm Strike so that he can buy Bitcoin.  It’s the first time a pro-athlete is getting paid in such a way.
While the average American may not be able to move $6.5 million of a $13 million annual salary to cryptocurrencies, one of the stronger trends of 2021 was a major shift towards investing in cryptos.  With interest rates likely to stay at zero, and stimulus and money printing occurring at a high rate for the foreseeable future, it’s one trend traders would be wise to follow in 2021, whether with the currencies themselves, or companies embracing Bitcoin and blockchain technology.

Now here’s the rest of the news:

Two Chinese StocksGood Morning.  A few different indicators come into play with the start of the year.  One, called the “first five days,” looks at the trading performance of the first trading week of the year going back to 1950.  If stocks finish higher in the first five days of the year, over 80 percent of the time the market will he up for the year as a whole.

If that’s the case, we’re 1 day down, and 4 to go to indicate an upbeat year for stocks in 2020.  Sure, nothing moves in a straight line, and today’s bullishness will undoubtedly fade at some point in the year.  For now, however, enjoy the party.  😉

“What Scares Me” isn’t what scares me … but what Darren Hardy’s message for us today.  Listen closely!

“Nothing in life is to be feared, it is only to be understood. Now is the time to understand more,
so that we may fear less.”

Good Friday All…

Caryl brought today’s quote from Toastmasters last night.  We couldn’t identify its origination, but here it is:

When you build a house, every brick counts.  When you build a character, every thought counts.  You are what you think.  Love, purity, peace, wisdom — the more you think of these qualities, the more you will become them.

Playing Bridge today with my mom and friends, around noon, then back home to make a few phone calls before supper.  Tomorrow “it’s-a-go” to pickup Marie, a retired work colleague of Caryl’s, and the three of us are to visit Murray Robinson at his home for coffee.  Murray just celebrated his 91st birthday and we like to check on him from time-to-time!  Both Caryl & Marie worked for Murray at the Pelican Group for many years.

Love your friends….

Invitations went out to our family to enjoy a chili meal with us on Saturday!  We never get tired of having the family over a quick visit, warm hardy food, a few laughs and lots of fresh smiles.

Work was good … no surprises … everyone thinks they can do the manager’s job better than the manager.  I’m just glad to get out of there after six hours.  Off tomorrow, so I get to sleep in a bit, move some stocks around … pocket some money and throw some away.  The throwing away part is not my choice, but when a stock moves in the wrong direction … it’s time to say farewell.

Will put a bit-of-money away today for our family vacation later this year.  Must find some pictures of where we will be going for our vacation.  Went to Mark’s for a couple of flannel shirts.  Mark’s have some great buys!!!!

Working on another website, besides this one, before bed.  Goodnight all…

“When trauma comes, we can learn from it, heal from it, and move through it.” –Dr. James Gordon Listen, Pause, Clarify and Validate Our ability to communicate effectively is one of the most precious skills we can develop.  Most of the time, when we think of communicating well, we think of effectively expressing ourselves.  This is certainly important, but listening is the single most important of all communication skills.  It’s what Stephen Covey calls “Seek first to understand and then to be understood.” Listen First and foremost, we must actively listen to what someone is saying.  Perhaps we were given

Good morning. Wednesday’s inflation numbers came in at a 15 year high.  But beyond the headlines, core inflation numbers have started to show a slowdown, with a rise of 0.2 percent from August.  It’s not a reversal, but a still-hidden sign that inflation may be moderating.  The bond market picked up on the news, with yields ticking down slightly. If that’s the case, then many of the fears impacting the market right now may go away.  That could explain part of Thursday’s rally, on top of the debt ceiling delay to December.  While we’re not out of the woods yet

Good morning. Inflation may be the headline story, but it’s just one factor that could impact corporate profitability this earnings season.  Many companies are able to pass on rising costs to customers from run-of-the-mill inflation.  But higher energy prices, which have been running hotter than official inflation measures, represent a much larger bill for many companies.  We’re already starting to see warnings on that front, including form airline companies, as oil prices hit a seven-year high. But there’s one more threat out there.  Last week, 136 nations signed an agreement on a minimum corporate tax rate of at least 15

Good morning. Earnings season is kicking off in earnest this week.  Typically, companies are able to beat expectations most of the time as Wall Street analysts adjust their expectations ahead of the results.  This time around, with companies coming off one-year numbers that look good from the lockdown era, combined with rising labor and energy costs, it’s possible that earnings may have peaked for the time being. If that’s the case, it comes down to guidance and expectations as to where the market goes from here into the end of the year.  With a labor market that’s still somewhat sluggish,

Good morning. One sign of an overvalued market occurs when company CEOs step down from their role, often after many years.  It’s tough to bow out at the top, and those who can will try to do so, rather than stay too long and get forced out after a bad decision or market events destroy shareholder value.  We saw a large rush of company executives leave in early 2020, just into the pandemic selloff. Now, that trend has slowed down.  But it’s not over yet.  Henry Kravis and George Roberts, founders of private equity giant KKR, are stepping down as

Good morning. The term “unicorn” was created to describe startup companies that had a valuation of over $1 billion based on their latest round of funding.  The notion was that such a company should be rare, as at that size it would make sense to take a company public. Yet today there are hundreds of unicorns.  The rare species has become a herd.  And none is bigger than SpaceX, the space exploration company run by Elon Musk.  A recent funding round has led the company to become the first centi-billionaire firm, with a valuation of over $100 billion. By the
