Not Willing to ListenGood morning.
Entire trading strategies have been built around a reversion to the mean.  That can be done with a long-term outlook, like the famous Dogs of the Dow Strategy that rebalances every year.  Traders looking for oversold sectors are also betting that even a sector that’s going down over time may have some big reversals along the way, setting up short-term trades.
In today’s markets, with ultra-low interest rates and fears of inflation rising, looking for those few oversold pockets looks like an attractive opportunity.  Some are even looking at tech following its drop as an oversold play, although tech stocks will always be surprisingly volatile.  While it’s an easy strategy, the tricky part comes down to the timing.

Now here’s the rest of the news:

Vital Mental Health Message from Darren Hardy:

FEMA is sending an army of Emergency Medical Technicians (EMTs), ambulances, and paramedics to NYC which matters to you because it could very well be a strong indicator of what’s to come for the rest of us.
This was done to help the city deal with the overwhelming rush of calls to 911 recently.  “There has never been a busier time in the history of emergency medical services,” said NYC Fire Commissioner Daniel Nigro.
Sometimes..Good morning.
As the projected peak infection date of April 15, 2020 approaches, there’s a lot of questions that I have and will likely never resolve.  One thing we need to prepare for is that things are highly likely to fundamentally’ change for a long time in not only the U.S., but throughout the world.
It’s very probable that analysts and many people you know are underestimating the toll socially, politically & economic-ally that the shutdown is causing.  It’s important to be prepared.

Good NEWSThe good news about the coronavirus pandemic

Robert H. Shmerling, MD

  • Most People with COVID-19 recover.
  • Children seem to be infected less often and have a milder ‘reaction to the’ disease.
  • The number of new cases is falling where the outbreak began.
  • Because the Internet exists, we currently have ways to practice social distancing that preserve at least some social and medical connections.
  • Our response to future pandemics should improve.  (The COVID-19 pandemic has exposed shortcomings in healthcare systems throughout the world!)
  • Many people and organizations have stepped up to improve the situation…  (Some major health insurers have promised to cover care and testing related to COVID-19 … AND … A number of celebrities and professional athletes have donated significant resources to help!)

The bottom line
Make no mistake: the new coronavirus epidemic is a big problem that’s expected to become bigger in the weeks and months to come.  For those who are infected as well as those trying to avoid infection, these are trying times.  But amid all the doom and gloom, there are some positive stories, positive messages and reasons to remain hopeful.
At a time when the citizenry of this country is so politically divided, we can also hope that this threat brings us together in ways that help us to better recognize commonalities: we’re all human, we get sick, and we worry about loved ones.  As social creatures, we try to help one another when bad things happen.  If that happens, it would be good news that could not have been foreseen before the pandemic.

“When trauma comes, we can learn from it, heal from it, and move through it.” –Dr. James Gordon Listen, Pause, Clarify and Validate Our ability to communicate effectively is one of the most precious skills we can develop.  Most of the time, when we think of communicating well, we think of effectively expressing ourselves.  This is certainly important, but listening is the single most important of all communication skills.  It’s what Stephen Covey calls “Seek first to understand and then to be understood.” Listen First and foremost, we must actively listen to what someone is saying.  Perhaps we were given

Good morning. Wednesday’s inflation numbers came in at a 15 year high.  But beyond the headlines, core inflation numbers have started to show a slowdown, with a rise of 0.2 percent from August.  It’s not a reversal, but a still-hidden sign that inflation may be moderating.  The bond market picked up on the news, with yields ticking down slightly. If that’s the case, then many of the fears impacting the market right now may go away.  That could explain part of Thursday’s rally, on top of the debt ceiling delay to December.  While we’re not out of the woods yet

Good morning. Inflation may be the headline story, but it’s just one factor that could impact corporate profitability this earnings season.  Many companies are able to pass on rising costs to customers from run-of-the-mill inflation.  But higher energy prices, which have been running hotter than official inflation measures, represent a much larger bill for many companies.  We’re already starting to see warnings on that front, including form airline companies, as oil prices hit a seven-year high. But there’s one more threat out there.  Last week, 136 nations signed an agreement on a minimum corporate tax rate of at least 15

Good morning. Earnings season is kicking off in earnest this week.  Typically, companies are able to beat expectations most of the time as Wall Street analysts adjust their expectations ahead of the results.  This time around, with companies coming off one-year numbers that look good from the lockdown era, combined with rising labor and energy costs, it’s possible that earnings may have peaked for the time being. If that’s the case, it comes down to guidance and expectations as to where the market goes from here into the end of the year.  With a labor market that’s still somewhat sluggish,

Good morning. One sign of an overvalued market occurs when company CEOs step down from their role, often after many years.  It’s tough to bow out at the top, and those who can will try to do so, rather than stay too long and get forced out after a bad decision or market events destroy shareholder value.  We saw a large rush of company executives leave in early 2020, just into the pandemic selloff. Now, that trend has slowed down.  But it’s not over yet.  Henry Kravis and George Roberts, founders of private equity giant KKR, are stepping down as

Good morning. The term “unicorn” was created to describe startup companies that had a valuation of over $1 billion based on their latest round of funding.  The notion was that such a company should be rare, as at that size it would make sense to take a company public. Yet today there are hundreds of unicorns.  The rare species has become a herd.  And none is bigger than SpaceX, the space exploration company run by Elon Musk.  A recent funding round has led the company to become the first centi-billionaire firm, with a valuation of over $100 billion. By the
