While YoungGood morning.
Coinbase is expected to make its initial public offering today.  Analysts have provided expectations for the company to trade as high as $600 per share, and potentially with a valuation of $148 billion.  That would make for one of the largest companies to go public in history.
With cryptocurrency prices rushing to new all-time highs ahead of the IPO, and with estimates getting increasingly bullish for the space, this big IPO could be a sign of a top.  While the chart patterns suggest such a top is a long way off, traders should watch to see how shares perform, as it may give a clue as to the next pause or drop in cryptocurrencies as well.

Now here’s the rest of the news:

Hibernate on itGood morning.  This will be an interesting week as corporate earnings season officially kicks off with the big money center banks announcing earnings.
JP Morgan (JPM) and Wells Fargo (WFC) get us started this morning with expectations of around a 6% move on JPM and around an 8.5% move on BAC.  The direction and magnitude of the movement may give an important indication where the next leg of the market is headed.  With the large move last week, it makes you wonder if traders will sell the news no matter what.

Bill’s in Airdrie today getting ready for his banquet tonight!

I decided to ride downtown and pick up a car from Enterprisemy reason was … because Car2Go takes apparently several business days to verify one’s driver-licence information.

I need a vehicle today to pick up a few things this weekend that just cannot be safely carried on a bike… propane for the BBQ, a 75M coil of 12/2 wire for the upstairs bathroom, and for simple shopping.  I was able to locate a much needed router, two with functioning USB_3.0 ports which I will be able to add to my growing home/business wireless network and surveillance system.  As I plan to share with you all later, Enterprise is a great company to rent vehicles from!

Although the ride was actually twice as long as shown here; [the first half of my adventure unfortunately lost]; cycling into the downtown was really quick!  Yes!  Closing STRAVA without saving it correctly, and then restarting the second-half of the adventure, destroyed any recovery hopes of segment one.

I’ve added music to the ride for a bit of fun!  [Turn the MUSIC ON…]

“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
