Business '21Good morning.
Earnings season offers a big opportunity for markets to move in either direction.  With the market currently contending with the issues that come from rising interest rates, and the latest Covid variant (which Bill Gates say may be the last before Covid becomes more seasonal like the flu), this quarterly earnings report could be a make-or-break.
While the data from the last quarter of 2021 are already in the rear-view mirror, early indications are that overall earnings for the S&P 500 are up 49 percent.  That’s hugely bullish, and some industries are likely to move higher no matter what happens to the overall economy in the coming year.
Traders will likely have some great opportunities going into this earnings season, and to find some bargains among companies that performed well but haven’t been treated well from the market lately.

Now here’s the rest of the news:

Trump Escapes Again!Good morning.
Let’s be honest, there have been a lot of crazy tweets so far this year.  You might have missed the one from billionaire Elon Musk about ditching traditional social media.  The world’s wealthiest man tweeted to “Use Signal,” a rival to the WhatsApp messaging system.  Traders picked up on the tweet, and bought shares… of unrelated company Signal Advance (SIGL).  The micro-cap healthcare tech company saw its size balloon from a $7 million valuation to $100 million before the trading deluge peaked out.
Now that shares have given back most of that move, it might be wise to look out for other micro-cap companies whose name can get confused with a bigger, yet unrelated name.  Or, better yet, some enterprising fund manager should solicit capital to start a fund with all such names to capture those 1,000% profits when other traders blindly pile in. Buy buyer beware: This is the kind of confusion that sets in when traders are on the hunt for big profits, a caution-to-the-wind attitude that tends to occur near market tops.

Now here’s the rest of the news:

and your day is going, howWhat are your “Money Beliefs?”
When working together in a marriage or partnership, having the same or similar money mindset is so important for increasing impact and making changes.
If you have two different directions of where you see your businesses finances going, it’s important to have a conversa-tion and decide whether working together is something you want to do as you would make more of a difference with a like minded money mindset.  In my marriage, if it weren’t for Caryl, I would probably invest every dollar we made and would have over 50 coaches.  Caryl helps me see things a differently and is super supportive.  She completes me!

In this video, Ray & Jessica Higdon talk about challenging your money mindset and your beliefs sur-rounding finances in order to increase your business growth and make a bigger difference.

WOW — what a great weekend … past!  Day #8

  • Fired up my new website
  • Moved a couple of LED lights around
  • Set up my Green Screen backdrop for doing training video
  • Started reading my third book this month
  • Checked the LOTTO Ticket!  [Didn’t win yet, however!]
  • FINALLY got the boxes in the storage area — LABELLED
  • I took the time to learn, really learn photo-editing, particularly about ‘layers’
  • And, how to clear unwanted objects from photo backgrounds.  BONUS!!  [This last ‘clearing of unwanted objects’ can be used throughout life!]

Mighty WomanCaryl had an equally productive weekend!  In part — going for a walk outside in the sunshine!  Pre-preparing lunches for work, freezing meals instead of rushing around on grocery-night, and reading the thickest book I’ve ever seen someone hold sitting in a recliner!  [If she falls asleep — while reading — this book will crush her.]  🙂

When I’m going through large spurts of growth and discomfort, I journal.  Most of it incoherent non-sense, but the act of writing allows me to work through my emotions and understand my own fears.  Journaling often takes my anxiety from an 8 out of 10, down to a 3 or 4.

I believe I’ve narrowed down why I feel so “shitty” Thursday night before I go to bed, and why I wake the next morning with “flu like symptoms” … sore joints and achy muscles accompanied with a pounding headache.

I’m very please I can say I’m not allergic to any food … I DO BELIEVE I have been poisoned.  The poison, I BELIEVE, is monosodium glutamate [MSG].  Unfortunately it takes several days to work through my body … even weeks!

Good morning. In spite of 7 percent inflation rates right now, consumers are continuing to spend.  While their overall confidence has dropped, the actual spending itself shows that the economy, largely dominated by such spending, is likely to continue moving higher this year. If inflation rates start to decline in the coming months, the market could be setting up for a solid return as the current fears abate.  Given the latest data showing that consumers continue to be interested in buying homes, automobiles, and appliances this year, even a small change higher in interest rates will unlikely derail the economy’s

Good morning. On Friday, the stock market broke its 200-day moving average lower for the first time since July 2020.  Stocks are looking at oversold levels going into the weekend, with many names down much further than the overall stock market index.  But yesterday’s wild trading saw a massive drop reverse into a gain at the close. This reversal could be a sign of capitulation by sellers, and that the worst of the current decline is over.  With leveraged traders already wiped out, and plenty of cash from retail and institutional investors on the sidelines, the market could see a

Good morning. Markets had $3.3 trillion reasons to be volatile last week.  That was based on the notational value of options expiring on Friday.  That included $1.3 trillion for individual stock positions alone, the second-highest on record.  Traders repositioning those trades ahead of expiration last week may have contributed to the big selloff, which finally started reversing on Friday as Treasury yields started coming back down. Given the growth of options trading, this phenomenon of added volatility into options expiration weeks may continue for the foreseeable future.  While February’s contracts are far lower in value, the next big hump will

Today! January 23, 2021 “Creativity is an action, not a feeling.  Your work is too important to be left to how you feel today.”  –Seth Godin Power Thought That Raises Awareness Whenever we’re talking about personal transformation — whether it’s physical (lose weight), financial (get out of debt), mental (overcome anxiety), spiritual, relational (repair a broken relationship), etc. — what we’re really talking about is change.  And for most, that can be scary.  In fact, many people don’t even entertain the idea of change until the pain of not changing becomes unbearable. In other words, you have to be ready and willing

Today! January 22, 2021 Good morning. The trade war.  The pandemic.  The election.  All the big catalysts that can move markets up or down are now off the table.  So what’s next?  Until a new catalyst emerges, expect markets to drift. With markets in a long-term uptrend, the drift will likely be higher.  Individual names can still have some big news on corporate announcements and earnings reports.  And look for potential catalysts that could provide the market’s next big move, whether higher (stimulus) or lower (war, pandemic, today’s high valuations). Now here’s the rest of the news: A “Cash Panic”

Good morning. Fears of rising inflation are likely to peak this year.  That’s good news.  And with news that major spending bills would be broken up, the likelihood of further fiscal stimulus to drive inflation higher is also likely to help there. In other areas, however, the economy is showing signs of a slowdown.  Jobless claims have risen to a three-month high.  Home sales have slowed after a massive boom in the past 18 months.  And now, expectations are that the trans-Pacific cargo trade are now rising to a three month wait time on average.  With a longer wait time

Good morning. While the stock market has largely been focused on rising interest rates in the past few weeks, the start to earnings season this week has been subdued.  Many of the big banks have started to report numbers.  And banks should be faring well even with higher rates of inflation going on right now. However, bank earnings have overall been lacklustre, as many banks have reported trading losses that have offset the gains made from a big year for mergers and IPOs. If bank earnings aren’t enough to get the markets excited and moving higher, chances are we’re in
