My DreamsGood morning.
Shares of GameStop (GME) are back under $50.  For those who bought near the peak, that’s nearly a 90 percent drop.  For those who bought near the stock’s 52-week low, that’s still a 10-fold gain.  With trading volume on the stock dwindling, it’s possible that the squeeze is over, and that many have already taken profits (or losses).
There’s still some chatter that the short positions held by hedge funds were only covered synthetically, and many retail investors are willing to hold onto their shares indefinitely.  While there may be a second bump in shares, most traders looking for a big move have moved on to other names.  Now, all that’s left is speculating on casting for the inevitable movie about the time Main Street took on Wall Street at its own game and was winning – until it got shut down.

Now here’s the rest of the news:

Silver is a ‘Turbo-Charged Version of Gold’ –Jeffrey Currie, Commodities Chief, Goldman Sachs
“What silver has that gold doesn’t have: It goes into solar panels… you get that added boost that a lot of that spending on silver is going to be green capital expenditures that to into solar panels, and then silver is the biggest benefactor.” [Read More]

ParachuteGood morning.
Natural gas futures hit an all-time low in Asia, as fears of the coronavirus are likely to impact energy demand there during the Northern hemisphere’s winter season.
That’s bad news for the energy sector, including the U.S.A.
In the past, natural gas could only be shipped by pipeline, but over the past few years the technology to liquefy and send natural gas anywhere in the world via tanker has come into operation.  For heavily leveraged American energy companies hoping for foreign demand, this is one more troubling sign for the shale space this year.

Time … 5 Ways You May be Wasting Yours!

Family Values - Family Time!
Time Never Wasted!

If I had a dollar for every time I’ve heard someone say — or even said myself — that they “wish there were more hours in a day,” I’d probably have enough money to buy a car … a clunker … but the point is that this is something you and I probably hear (and say) fairly regularly.
Let’s face it, we all have the same 24 hours in a day.  And while this wish for more time is somewhat a figure of speech, most of us find that it’s a race against the clock (better said, a race against one complete rotation of the earth) to get everything done that we want to each day.
But what if we didn’t need more time … what if we just needed to make better use of the time we had?  The truth is that most of us are “leaking” time each day on things that really don’t matter.  That’s a nice way of saying that at some point during the day, most people are wasting time.
Here are 5 common time vampires sucking this precious resource from you.

logos_100_xxxChecking email.  Over … and over.  Do you check your email routinely throughout the day?  Worse, do you keep your email browser open and feel summoned by every “ding” you hear?  Email is a huge distraction, taking your time and focus away from the things that really count.  Try cutting back your email time to three times, twice, or even once a day.

Watching TV.  The average person spends about 35 hours watching TV a week.  That’s insane.  It’s basically a full-time job.  We’re not saying to get rid of TV.  We’re just saying that there’s probably a better way (or 20) to spend at least a fraction of that time.

Gossiping.  Not only is it an utter waste of time, gossiping is negative, sucking time, energy, and life out of you — and whoever else is involved in the useless banter.  Use that time to practice gratitude, meditate, write a note to someone, or have a meaningful conversation with a friend.

Not having a to-do list.  If you’re going to protect your time, use it productively, and win the day, you need to have a game plan that emphasizes your top priorities (those things that are urgent and important).  Sure, there’s a good chance things may not go exactly according to plan, and you need to be flexible to a degree; but you’ve heard it before and you’ll hear it again: If you fail to plan, you plan to fail.

Social media.  While social media isn’t inherently bad, when you’re spending 2 – 9 hours on it a day like most people are, that’s too much valuable time that’s being wasted.  Don’t believe you’re leaking that much time to the social media vampires?  Use an app like Pyxsee to track your social media use (and even set limits on how much time you do spend); you’ll be surprised.

To the value of time!  😉

Ten Ways To Foster Innovation In order to compete effectively, we must look for new and better ways to accomplish our mission.  We must find creative methods to delight our customers.  And we must find innovative strategies for getting more done with fewer resources. With things changing as rapidly as they are, doing things the old way won’t be profitable for very long.  To grow, we must be constantly innovating. An innovative company attracts and keeps better employees.  People want to be part of something creative.  It’s stimulating and it’s fun. Here are ten things you can do to foster

Good morning. We’re fans of following company insiders when they buy their own shares.  That’s because they only buy if they see a good value going forward.  Most company insiders are partially compensated in shares, so they have plenty of reasons to sell, from portfolio diversification to big spending bills like a second house or divorce. Overall, buying with company insiders produces excess returns compared to the market.  But they’re not the only insider group out there. Consider Congress.  Last year, two senators sold off stocks after an early hearing on Covid and before the big crash.  House Speaker Nancy

Good morning. Yesterday marked the 13th anniversary of the collapse of Lehman Brothers, a “victim” of over leverage on the US housing market.  Yesterday also marked the day when Evergrande, a Chinese real estate firm, stated that it wouldn’t pay interest on its already-collapsing bonds. For years, many have warned about the size and rate of China’s real estate buildup, from empty cities to investment homes that sit unused (one of the few places where citizens can park cash).  While we’re optimistic that the damage can be contained to China and not impact global growth too much, we also can’t

Good morning. We’ve warned for weeks that stocks are at elevated levels, and that a modest pullback would be likely.  Now, however, investor sentiment has gotten heavily bearish, for more than just a small pullback. That’s somewhat concerning, as fears of a market pullback could lead to enough profit-taking and cash-raising that it becomes a self-fulfilling prophecy.  However, a market so quick to get so bearish could also be a sign that there’s still a major rally ahead.  Bull markets don’t die when investors get fearful.  Rather, it’s when investors get so bullish that they go all-in at record highs.

Good morning. With Labor Day weekend over, oil prices should be trending down.  The summer driving season in North America is over, and it’s largely an American phenomenon.  However, expectations for a potentially colder-than-average winter are keeping a bid under oil prices right now. At a time when traders typically expect lower prices going forward, oil is now at a 5-week high and trending higher.  And Bank of America analysts see crude oil pumping as much as $100 per barrel under an exceptionally cold winter scenario.  It’s likely that gas prices may remain higher for longer than expected, and can

Good morning. Last week, Treasury Secretary Janet Yellen warned that the measures underway to preserve cash at the US Treasury were likely to run out in mid-October.  Unless Congress acts to raise the debt ceiling, there could be a potentially debt cliff where a number of government programs simply don’t get paid. That’s a scenario that nearly unfolded in 2011. 10 years ago, it also provided the stock market with a flat return for the year and a closest thing to a selloff since the housing crisis two years before that.  Last week’s market weakness may be starting to reflect
