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!  😉

How To Win The Day With every sunrise comes opportunity.  Each day is a figurative clean slate — another chance at getting it right and moving the ball closer to the goal line.  Regardless of what happened yesterday, we have the chance to start anew each morning. And the morning sets the tone for the entire day.  You own the morning, you win the day.  The happiest, healthiest, and most successful people know this.  They embrace it, and they use it to their advantage.  They build morning rituals to establish the foundation for the day. Here are 6 things they

Good morning. The biggest bombshell from the latest Fed meeting was the acknowledgement that inflation was coming in far higher than expected.  While the Fed continues its policy of trying to talk the market into always going up, some see a tapering of its asset purchases sooner rather than later. While that doesn’t mean higher interest rates right away, what it does mean is a big slowdown in money creation and addition to the central bank’s balance sheet.  That’s likely why both bond yields and gold prices have been dropping.  While tapering might spook the market, the prospect of lower

Good morning. Yesterday’s Federal Reserve meeting minutes kept interest rates at 0 percent, as expected.  And the Fed isn’t ready to taper its asset purchases (money printing) anytime soon.  But in trying to please everyone, the central bank sometimes ends up pleasing no one. The central bank made a big revision in its inflation estimates, from 2.4 percent to 3.4 percent.  While calling higher inflation “transitory,” the market isn’t so sure.  And, after the March meeting indicated no potential for an interest rate hike until 2024, there’s now an increasing possibility of a rate hike in 2023. The only real

Good morning. Michael Burry is a fund manager best known for going against the housing market in the runup to the meltdown.  Today, Burry sees inflation as the biggest threat to the economy.  And with prior stimulus measures boosting the price of everything from stocks to housing, the biggest threat is a nudge into hyperinflation.  Burry sees that happening this year.  Burry also sees the stock market as not only the greatest market bubble of all time, but the biggest by at least “two orders of magnitude.”  As investors adjust their return expectations for inflation, that bubble may burst. Time

Good morning. Most financial news is predicated around the idea that markets are either going up or down.  But sometimes, like now, indices are largely trading sideways.  When that happens, traders will start to look for clues as to what happens when the sideways trend ends. For most market conditions, a sideways trend can last anywhere from 6-12 months in part of a broader bull market.  That looks like the case here, given that most indices are still near all-time highs.  But it’s a time to find companies that have been hit the hardest and look set for the biggest

Good morning. There’s an old Wall Street saying that the cure for high prices is… high prices.  That’s because when prices are high, competition comes into play and customers seek substitutes.  Recent inflation data showing a jump in home and car prices (both new and used), is also leading to potential buyers to hold off on making a purchase. That could reduce demand enough to keep prices from heading higher in those areas.  A slowdown in governmental assistance to the economy in the form of stimulus checks and high spending may also help nip this rising inflation in the bud.
