DiversityGood morning.
The Biden Administration finally unveiled its $2 trillion infrastructure plan.  With generous provisions for public transit, light rail, and electric vehicles, nearly every company in the S&P 500 stands to benefit from the higher spending, whether directly or indirectly.
However… someone’s got to pay for it.  And the tax hikes proposed will fall on businesses under a plan for higher corporate tax rates, the closing of loopholes, and higher rates on overseas profits.  The overall plan sounds very much like a “buy now, pay later,” plan, as the spending will likely hit its peak in time for the 2022 midterm elections, while the taxes will kick in over a period of a few years. In the meantime, the market seems on board with the plan.

Now here’s the rest of the news:

Yeah!Good morning.
While the market was able to recoup losses as the first quarter came to a close … it still posted the worst quarterly performance in history.  This kind of volatility has been a boon for some investors and devastating for others.  One thing hopefully becoming clear; you need to become more dynamic in your approach to the market.

FIVE SIMPLE WAYS TO TRICK YOUR MIND INTO ATTRACTING WEALTH

Yes, I said very simple.  The five steps which follow are designed for the complete beginner.  You can start today, right now, to attract more prosperity in your life.  Here’s the 3rd way to start immediately.

3. Find a penny, pick it up. In order to attract wealth into your life, your subconscious mind must be open to the idea of wealth flowing to you.  You must be open and receptive to money coming to you from any source whatsoever.  This includes the pennies laying on the street.  If you pass a penny on the sidewalk, and your usual reaction is simply to ignore it because stooping down to pick up a penny is not worth the effort, you are telling your subconscious mind that you are not willing to put out effort for money.  The amount of money makes no difference whatsoever.  The subconscious mind doesn’t distinguish between one penny and one million dollars.  All it knows is how you feel.

Of course this manifests in many other ways as well.  Whenever you do not accept a gift graciously, whenever you do not charge someone for work that you have done for them, or charge them way less than you should because you feel guilty, and whenever you sell a product for less than it is worth because you do not want to charge too much, you are generating the same emotions.  So begin to be open to money, in whatever form, and begin to accept it’s flow into your life, even if it’s only a penny on the street.

How to use this principle today:  Simply go for a walk today and look for money.  You are sure to find at least a penny somewhere.  Pick it up and thank the universe for bringing money into your life.  Let your subconscious mind know that you are open and willing to accept money from any source.

As well, apply this principle in your working life.  If you have been undercharging for your services, raise your prices.  If you are not earning what you feel you should, ask for a raise.  And whenever anyone gives you anything, especially money, accept it graciously and give thanks.

Please … I beg you to follow along for the next two days to get every drop of this secret sauce.

Shine Your Light on Others Real leadership, the kind of leadership that not only works but also has a lasting impact, is about building other people and shining your light on them, not on yourself.  Real leaders understand they are here to work for the team, and not the other way around. A mediocre leader tries to impress people with how important he or she is.  A great leader impresses upon people how important they are. People will be willing to do more and accomplish more when they feel recognized.  A little recognition goes a long way, but you have to

Good morning. 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

Good morning. Wednesday’s inflation reading of a 7 percent annual increase is the biggest move higher for inflation since 1982.  However, behind all headlines are some good and bad news.  Good news?  The rate of inflation growth is slowing, and that may be confirmed over the next few months. And, within the data that goes into inflation, some components are still continuing to rise, such as energy and gasoline prices.  But other factors, like meat prices, are starting to decline. This more nuanced picture shows that many inflation components are also tied in with shortages, and that the rate of

Good morning. The stock market continues to struggle to find its footing this year, as attempts to move higher seem to be thwarted by a number of news items such as rising Covid cases.  However, combined with a low death rate (something the news rarely talks about anymore), the latest variant may allow the pandemic to become endemic to those who haven’t yet moved on. In the meantime, a number of investors are getting bullish following the latest selloff.  Of particular note is the renewed interest in Bitcoin, where billionaire Bill Miller states that half his personal portfolio is now

Good morning. At its lows yesterday, the Nasdaq hit correction territory, down 10 percent from its most recent high.  That comes as interest rates continue to creep higher.  With a week loaded with economic data, that’s no surprise. By the end of the week we should see the latest inflation data with a CPI release on Wednesday, as well as the PPI for producer data.  Retail sales will give a hint as to how the holidays performed compared to prior years, and a number of Federal Reserve members have speaking engagements which can move the markets this week. With the

Good morning. Going into Friday’s job reports, a full 86 percent of market participants queried believed that the Federal Reserve would hike interest rates in March.  Such a move, coming off of last week’s hawkish meeting minutes, would mean going from 0 percent interest rates to 0.25 percent. While not a huge move, it would be a sign that the economy is performing well and that the job market is getting close to normal.  While the latest jobs numbers had a big miss on Friday, enough jobs were created to drop the unemployment rate down to 3.9 percent.  Sure, the

January 09, 2021 Getting A Job Is a Job A recruiter asked a job candidate, “Why did you leave your last job?” The job applicant replied, “It was something my boss said.” “What did he say?” “You’re fired.” This person definitely needs a copy of my new book – “Getting a Job is a Job” – which comes out Jan. 5.  In it, I focus on bouncing back after being fired, dealing with rejection and the emotions people feel.  And I explain why you can’t take it personally.
