March '22 NEWSGood morning.
There are a number of proposals on the table today to contend with high gas prices.  While expanding US domestic energy production seems off the table, as does a suspension of the federal gas tax, which adds considerably to the cost per gallon of fuel, another proposal is making the rounds that could pass.
The idea?  To send out gas cards, or gas-specific stimulus payments.  If we’ve learned anything from the past two years, we know that such a proposal could lead to a feeling of euphoria in the short-term, and that by the time the next round of inflation hits from this new proposed spending, we’ll be in a different political cycle.
In the meantime, whatever proposals do occur, energy companies are still largely inexpensive relative to current energy prices.  Trade accordingly.

Tomorrow is my 69th birthday!!!

AppleCider_2Today, I want to share an interesting blog article: As a nation, we’re fascinated with the concept of miraculous healing.  Presumably, this miracle can come in the form of a pill, tea or a fantastically labeled elixir of health.  Every day, millions of dollars are spent as people search for cures in the form of mystical pharmaceutical remedies that can banish all ailments and protect from disease.

Today’s Tip is about a Daily Energy Tonic you might have never thought of before… and although the 3-4 simple ingredients are needed to be raw and organic, it should be very easy to locate!  I personally have not tried it!  Sounds okay.  And for what it’s worth; here’s the link!

Two brothers in a small town had a reputation for bad behavior.  But they were rich enough to avoid the consequences all the time.  The pastor of the local church knew them well and tried to find the good in both of them, although this was next to impossible.

Suddenly one day, one of the brothers died.  The other came to the church and asked the pastor to speak at his funeral.

“To be honest, l wouldn’t know what to say,” the pastor replied.

The brother took out his checkbook.  “I’m writing you a check for $10,000 for the church renovations you’re always talking about.  All you have to do is tell everyone at the funeral that my brother was a saint.”

The pastor thought for a moment, then accepted the check.

At the funeral, the pastor stood before the townspeople who had come to see the last of one of their disliked neighbors.  “l didn’t know this man well,” he said “l do know that he cheated on his wife, and cheated everyone he did business with.  But l can say one thing about him: compared to his brother, he was a saint.”  😉

Fly Baby

Airline Goodies…

Where is the best place to sit on an airplane?  It’s not over the wing … a common myth.  The best place to sit for a smooth ride is as close to the front of the airplane as you can sit.  Airlines have known this for decades, but they don’t like saying it.  There is yet one more reason why First Class is always at the front of the airplane.

The food aboard airliners is usually not that bad.  When you think about it, how hard is it to send 200 meals that need to be reheated 7 miles up into the sky, in a tube that can barely hold them?  Airlines spend a lot of money planning meal service and menus that will please their customers.

Today “small town” in Newfoundland is… Salt Harbour. May 15, 2021 Struggling … how to break bad habits? “Nothing is impossible.  The word itself say, ‘I’m possible.’” –Audrey Hepburn There’s no one single reason why we struggle — to break bad habits, achieve our goals, or excel in our desired domain — but more often than not, the biggest challenge is sitting between your two ears. Yes, your mind is incredibly powerful, and quite frankly, it’s a double-edge sword.  The stories you tell yourself, the things you believe about yourself, and the way you talk to yourself can either be

Today! May 14, 2021 Good morning. One year ago, oil prices went negative as traders feared that the pandemic would lead to prolonged drops in oil use and got caught in trades they couldn’t get out of.  Today, oil and gasoline prices have held up well in inventory reports.  However, supply issues remain in the South and up and down the East Coast, even as Colonial pipeline paid a $5 million ransom to the hackers who shut down their system.  A number of states have declared emergencies as supplies have run low. It just goes to show that oil, one

Good morning. Meme stocks are back!  Well, sort of. A spike in companies like AMC Entertainment (AMC) and GameStop (GME) occurred yesterday.  GameStop was even halted multiple times on the way up (but not on the way down).  Oddly, this may be an early sign that markets are looking for a short-term bottom, given the sharp reversals higher. On CNBC, analyst Jim Cramer came out against the traders of meme stocks using sites like Reddit’s Wall Street Bets, to find the meme stock opportunities in the first place.  Tough words for someone whose television show features sound effects.  But for

Good morning. The good news?  Inflation has slightly slowed on a year-over-year basis, for the first time in seven months.  The bad news?  It’s still high at 8.3 percent.  And it came in higher than expectations. Looking at the data shows some reasons for the unexpected strength.  Most components of CPI still rose more than 6 percent in April.  But soaring food prices – which we’ve warned about fairly often — were a big contributor.  Another big move higher was record airfare prices, as high fuel costs and a reopened economy drove prices up. The data doesn’t give too much

Good morning. Typically, growth stocks lead the market.  That’s because these companies have the ability to scale up rapidly, and one of the best signs of a stock heading higher over the long haul is increased earnings. Yet every few years, value stocks have their time to shine.  A year ago, Warren Buffett’s performance as being derided.  Yet he’s buying stocks now.  In contrast, Ark Innovation, the hypergrowth fund managed by Cathie Wood, is now not just down relative to Buffett — but it’s underperforming the S&P 500 since its inception. Can these trends reverse in time?  Yes.  Will they

Good morning. Any econ 101 student can tell you that there’s a lag effect between something like, say, the creation of trillions of dollars in spending, and inflation rates reflecting that.  We’re seeing that trend play out today, with the highest inflation levels in decades. The good news?  Some of that new money first went to financial markets, rather than in goods and services.  That helped keep many things affordable, especially during the initial lockdown phase of the pandemic.  But today, we’re seeing the impacts of those past lockdowns (and current ones).  And we’re seeing that handing out money directly

Good morning. People don’t mind inflation when it hits things like assets.  When stocks and home prices are rising, consumers feel wealthier.  This “wealth effect” tends to be beneficial to spending, which then become a self-fulfilling prophecy. The 2009-2020 market rally started with this effect.  The bank bailouts propped up the banks, but didn’t cause inflation on Main Street.  Today, thanks to the stimulus measures during the pandemic, Main Street went on a spending binge.  That’s caused a reverse wealth effect as the prices of goods like food and utilities are rising at a rapid rate — but now asset
