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.

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.

What 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!]
Caryl 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!
