SpottyGood morning.
There’s an old market adage, “Sell in May and go away.”  It’s based on the historical returns of the stock market, which tend to be strong at the start of the year, slow down over the summer, and potentially decline in the fall before a year-end rally.
With markets bucking that trend, however, traders might want to bet on stocks making a move higher from here.  It would be the move that would most catch investors off-guard, something that happens fairly often in the investment world.
Instead, this year traders might want to take a break from their screens and tend to a garden instead.  The calendar this time of year is also the most favourable for growing food.  With rising fertilizer costs, as well as a series of shutdowns at food processing plants, it may not be the most exciting investment.  But you can’t eat a share of stock.

Now here’s the rest of the news:

I don't get itGood morning.
Trends don’t always have to come from a stock’s price or volume.  Some great investment ideas can come from looking at trends on search engines.  An uptick in searches for gold or Bitcoin might show when retail investors are getting into a trade – and a decline in searches might show that interest is waning.
Currently, there’s been a 2,450 percent surge in the past month for searchers asking, “When is the housing market is likely to crash?”  It would be great if search engines could provide an exact date on when that could happen, or any market drop in general!  But chances are a housing crash is a trend that will occur when it’s least expected.  The search engine terms to look for would include a jump in how to buy multiple properties with no money down, and house buying hacks.

Now here’s the rest of the news:

I'm OkayGood morning.
Trump vowed to support oil and gas companies through this difficult period, but the supply issues aren’t going to magically go away.  The fact is there was a lot of supply that was brought on when oil prices were trading significantly higher and aren’t remotely viable at current prices.
The oil futures market is finally waking up to the massive oversupply that spilling over at storage hubs.  That oversupply may only be the first indication of other issues building in a system that has been shut down because of COVID-19 fears.  Today’s weakness may only be a prelude…
As these COVID-19 lockdowns drag out, more and more individuals and businesses are going cashless (for convenience and in a so-called effort to avoid spreading coronavirus…
China’s economy shrank in the first three months of 2020, its first contraction since 1992, as production and spending were frozen by the country’s coronavirus lockdown…

Today “small town” in Newfoundland is… Salt Harbour. May 15, 2021 Struggling … how to break bad habits? “Nothing is impossible.  The word itself say, ‘I’m possible.’” –Audrey Hepburn There’s no one single reason why we struggle — to break bad habits, achieve our goals, or excel in our desired domain — but more often than not, the biggest challenge is sitting between your two ears. Yes, your mind is incredibly powerful, and quite frankly, it’s a double-edge sword.  The stories you tell yourself, the things you believe about yourself, and the way you talk to yourself can either be

Today! May 14, 2021 Good morning. One year ago, oil prices went negative as traders feared that the pandemic would lead to prolonged drops in oil use and got caught in trades they couldn’t get out of.  Today, oil and gasoline prices have held up well in inventory reports.  However, supply issues remain in the South and up and down the East Coast, even as Colonial pipeline paid a $5 million ransom to the hackers who shut down their system.  A number of states have declared emergencies as supplies have run low. It just goes to show that oil, one

Good morning. Meme stocks are back!  Well, sort of. A spike in companies like AMC Entertainment (AMC) and GameStop (GME) occurred yesterday.  GameStop was even halted multiple times on the way up (but not on the way down).  Oddly, this may be an early sign that markets are looking for a short-term bottom, given the sharp reversals higher. On CNBC, analyst Jim Cramer came out against the traders of meme stocks using sites like Reddit’s Wall Street Bets, to find the meme stock opportunities in the first place.  Tough words for someone whose television show features sound effects.  But for

Good morning. The good news?  Inflation has slightly slowed on a year-over-year basis, for the first time in seven months.  The bad news?  It’s still high at 8.3 percent.  And it came in higher than expectations. Looking at the data shows some reasons for the unexpected strength.  Most components of CPI still rose more than 6 percent in April.  But soaring food prices – which we’ve warned about fairly often — were a big contributor.  Another big move higher was record airfare prices, as high fuel costs and a reopened economy drove prices up. The data doesn’t give too much

Good morning. Typically, growth stocks lead the market.  That’s because these companies have the ability to scale up rapidly, and one of the best signs of a stock heading higher over the long haul is increased earnings. Yet every few years, value stocks have their time to shine.  A year ago, Warren Buffett’s performance as being derided.  Yet he’s buying stocks now.  In contrast, Ark Innovation, the hypergrowth fund managed by Cathie Wood, is now not just down relative to Buffett — but it’s underperforming the S&P 500 since its inception. Can these trends reverse in time?  Yes.  Will they

Good morning. Any econ 101 student can tell you that there’s a lag effect between something like, say, the creation of trillions of dollars in spending, and inflation rates reflecting that.  We’re seeing that trend play out today, with the highest inflation levels in decades. The good news?  Some of that new money first went to financial markets, rather than in goods and services.  That helped keep many things affordable, especially during the initial lockdown phase of the pandemic.  But today, we’re seeing the impacts of those past lockdowns (and current ones).  And we’re seeing that handing out money directly

Good morning. People don’t mind inflation when it hits things like assets.  When stocks and home prices are rising, consumers feel wealthier.  This “wealth effect” tends to be beneficial to spending, which then become a self-fulfilling prophecy. The 2009-2020 market rally started with this effect.  The bank bailouts propped up the banks, but didn’t cause inflation on Main Street.  Today, thanks to the stimulus measures during the pandemic, Main Street went on a spending binge.  That’s caused a reverse wealth effect as the prices of goods like food and utilities are rising at a rapid rate — but now asset
