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.

DECLARATION FOR THE DAY:
I Am A Leader.  I Don’t “Wait And See.”
Proactive To Finding A Solution To My Problems.
(Say this 3x times today)

How To Be A Leader People Want To Follow:

  • Can you lead even when you’re fearful?
  • Can you lead when things are uncertain?

The short answer is, YES!  And my answer is, YOU MUST.

In times of crisis, people are looking for someone to listen to.  A voice to follow.  This is your time to step up and show the world you’re worth following.

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…]

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

More Newfoundland wonder! 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. The book is chock full of helpful hints on
