Your OrderGood morning.
The stock market volatility in recent weeks has left the stock market still near all-time highs.  But with some large daily swings, and with tech stocks down much more on average, the sentiment is still somewhat bearish.
Overall, that points to a slowing of the longer-term market rally, not the end of it.  Some of the big speculation in tech in the first few weeks of the year has taken a pause.  That’s normal in a bull market.  As a result, investors and traders alike should look for short-term fears as a buying opportunity, particularly in fast-growing tech plays.

How have you shifted your trading strategy in today’s choppy markets?

Es' Birthday CardToday … It’s my 69th Birthday!  … Yes! … “Too late to die young.” 

As many well-wishers are texting messages, emailing, and speaking on the phone with me … I’d like to say a special thanks to Es who sent me this brother-in-law birthday card.

Dutch-Pancake-HouseWe did, have to unfortunately, postpone this years’ Pfanntastic Pannenkoek Haus get-together with friends and family due to the Coronavirus outbreak.  Everyone’s first priority is to keep healthy and safe!  Thanks everyone … we will get together soon!  XoXoXo

Our EXAMPLESHIP creates our legacy

Brian Carruthers wrote this article … and I couldn’t be more proud to share it with you and your family today!

I’m teaching Colton before he’s 2 about 10X Mindset.  This kid is OBSESSED so I doubt he’ll ever be average. #beobsessedorbeaverage #10x (Grant Cardone’s book The 10X Rule)

People question if I’m legit all the time.  They say “If you really made $20M+ then why are you still building and working??”

I tell them I’ve barely even started to scratch the surface of my potential.  And my mission is bigger than just me.  And I tell them that if I got lazy now and slowed down, I’d be teaching my little kids the wrong lessons of work ethicambition, and going for it in life.  I want them to find their passion and get attention on it.  Build their empires on it.  #buildinganempire

Money is only a part of the overall picture.  Net worth is just a measuring stick for how much value you’ve brought to the marketplace.  IMPACT IS EVERYTHING.  I want to make the world a better place.  I want to teach my kids to do the same.

Let’s all know and remember … our AMBITION sets the tone for those around us.  The greatest gift we can give our kids is not monetary inheritance.  It’s mindset  and attitude and ambition and work ethic.

If we are lazy, if we are not going for it with urgency each day CONSISTENTLY, not only do we not accomplish big goals and create big success for ourselves, but our playing small adversely affects everyone we care about.  Our EXAMPLESHIP creates our legacy … good or bad, big or small.  You can’t tell your kids they can accomplish anything they want in life while you’re playing small and not accomplishing much.  They will look at you as either a hypocrite or as someone just blowing hot air that they don’t even think you believe yourself.

Many parents think spending tons of time with their kids is most important.  I feel that a balance is crucial — your kids need to see you hustling and winning, and having SOME time when you can just chill with them.  But it is GOOD FOR THEM to miss you, and see that you are doing important things in life.  That teaches them ambition, purpose, and real life skills.  Yes, kids spell LOVE as T-I-M-E.   I totally agree.  They want you there a lot, but they NEED you to go be a winner example for them as well.  Again, it’s a balancing act.

So I choose the 10X mindset.  I am building empires with people, impacting lives all over the world, helping all those people become heroes and great examples for their kids.  My three boys will know their Dad as someone who had impact.  Yes, I made crazy amounts of money as well.  But it’s the impact they witnessed that will serve them well in their futures.

Go 10X your life.  Do it for you, do it for your family, do it to leave your mark.  😉

Happy Birthday

Happy Birthday to me!

Happy Birthday to me!

Happy Birthday … Happy Birthday … Happy Birthday to me!

Yes, today is my birthday anniversary.  I have lots to be grateful for … the off work today is one of them.  Chilled out for the day!  Pre-paid for my flight from Halifax, NS to Saint John’s, NF later this September.

Also booked my accommodations for Saint John’s, hoping to see the “Jelly Bean Row” houses, the Cape Spear Lighthouse, and the place where Marconi sent the first wireless trans-atlantic communication, Signal Hill.  Plan to a lot of Geocaching in and around St. John’s. [I’m excited…]

Good morning. As much as Wall Street loves rumors, Washington DC is the major league.  The latest rumors are that Federal Reserve Chairman Jerome Powell might not be nominated for a second term to lead the Fed.  While his tenure has been little different than his prior two predecessors given the crises he’s had to deal with, some progressives don’t think the Fed chair has done enough on income inequality and other matters. That could lead the White House to find a more radical leader for the central bank, potentially even one willing to embrace the latest economic theories such

Letting Go Of Guilt “Guilt can stop us from taking healthy care of ourselves.” –Melody Beattie Guilt is like a rock.  It sits in the pit of our stomachs and can weigh down our every thought, behavior, and action.  It can distract us all throughout the day and keep us awake at night.  Our muscles work overtime just to carry it around, and yet we still hold onto it. It’s imperative that we stop feeling so guilty. That’s not to say that you shouldn’t feel guilt.  True guilt is a loving instrument from Spiritual Guidance used to convict, correct, and confirm your

Good morning. Technology companies need to constantly innovate.  That results in a high amount of money being spent on research and development, which in turn helps keep a company’s taxes lower than a company that makes the same product year-in, year-out. So it’s no surprise that regulators are always on the lookout for ways to try and get more taxes out of these massive firms that often have little to no earnings.  One proposal is being floated for a new generation of technology: a space tax.  Or, more specifically, a per-passenger tax on space flights like the ones just completed

Good morning. The rise of retail traders over the past year has likely saved a number of companies from bankruptcy, or helped bankrupt companies bounce back and exit bankruptcy faster.  That’s created a lot of interest in finding short squeeze stocks for big, fast profits.  It’s also driven traders into options to play the trend as well. One area can also be at play for big bucks: Corporate bond markets. Case in point, 2026 bonds for AMC Entertainment (AMC) traded as low as 5 cents on the dollar last year, but have no rallied back to par.  Buyers would have

Good morning. Investors sometime take a very binary approach to stocks.  They’re either all-in on a position, or they’re in cash or a different trade.  Rather than buy all at once, however, astute traders know when to average in.  As long as a company’s prospects don’t fundamentally change, this move allows investors to still have the option of cash, with the ability to buy more shares of a company when the market declines. So while Goldman Sachs (GS) recently warned clients not to buy Monday’s drop, retail investors saw a dip to buy instead.  With stocks hitting resistance at their

Good morning. The stock market was in freefall Monday, much like a mini-version of its March 2020 decline.  Is this the next big sell-off?  Probably not.  Monday’s fears, based on rising mask mandate re-impositions and a few select lockdown threats around the world, are likely being overblown. In the meantime, the bigger market concern is whether or not the current economic growth is sustainable.  The facts are that it will likely slow.  Not the best news, but not the worst news either.  And inflation expectations continue to rise.  But with a lumber market shouting “timber” as it comes back down
