Mother's Day_3Good morning.
Online auction site eBay (EBAY) became huge in the 1990s thanks to the demand for Beanie Babies.  As the central site for that fad, the company was able to expand and survive the internet bubble.
Now, the company is looking to enable cryptocurrency payments, to better serve its customers.  It’s also looking to break into the NFT, or non-fungible token market.  NFTs are digital assets like a picture or song.  While they can be copied, blockchain data provides the owner of the NFT with the assurance that they are, in fact, the original owner.  NFTs have been big business so far this year, and show one of many applications for cryptocurrencies and blockchain technology.

Now here’s the rest of the news:

The BIGGER Short –Jon Schwarz & Ryan Grim,The Intercept
Wall Street’s biggest names are up to their 2008 shenanigans again.  This time, with business loans.  It’s a $4.5 trillion market, and delinquencies just hit all-time highs… [Read Here]

Bank of America: “Transitory Hyperinflation Ahead” –Tyler Durden,ZeroHedge
On BofA’s earnings call, inflation concerns “skyrocketed to near record highs from 2011, pointing to at the very least, ‘transitory’ hyper-inflation ahead.” [Read Here]

“I’ve been called many names like perfectionist, difficult and obsessive. I think it takes obsession, takes searching for the details for any artist to be good.”

The quarterly numbers came inGood morning.
As you begin to look at the entirety of last week, it was a ride.  So much optimism at the beginning and culminated with GOOG and FB gaping higher following earnings.
It peaked on hump day and never recovered.  By the end of the week the gains were largely erased from industries that would benefit from reopening the economy.  Some article will point to earnings or discussion of tariffs, but it makes you wonder whether the extensions in California in elsewhere began to dim the light at the end of a very long tunnel.

In Other News:

Get Ready for the Next Great Bull Market in Gold  John Doody detailed why he thinks gold prices can shoot to $3,000 per ounce – and maybe more – in the near future.

My friends complain all the time about charging their Teslas.  It takes five hours.  And that’s just when it’s half dead.
So imagine their surprise when I recently told them about a brand-new green technology that charges not in hours, but in less than five minutes!
It’s as quick as filling a tank of gas, except there’s no carbon emissions…
New and ImprovedIt lasts hundreds of miles longer…
And it NEVER dies – it can recharge forever.
The only thing it emits is pure, clean drinking water.
Best of all, it’s cheaper than batteries.  And safer.
Jimmy Mengel tested this technology himself recently…
And it’s so remarkable that I now agree with the experts who say: “this is the Tesla killer.”
Bloomberg projects it to “skyrocket 1,000 times over.”  And best of all…

The tiny little-known stock behind the “Tesla Killer” trades for only a few bucks.

Don’t wait another moment.
Now you can lock in its shares for a few dollars, instead of over $400 like Tesla.

Good morning. As much as Wall Street loves rumors, Washington DC is the major league.  The latest rumors are that Federal Reserve Chairman Jerome Powell might not be nominated for a second term to lead the Fed.  While his tenure has been little different than his prior two predecessors given the crises he’s had to deal with, some progressives don’t think the Fed chair has done enough on income inequality and other matters. That could lead the White House to find a more radical leader for the central bank, potentially even one willing to embrace the latest economic theories such

Letting Go Of Guilt “Guilt can stop us from taking healthy care of ourselves.” –Melody Beattie Guilt is like a rock.  It sits in the pit of our stomachs and can weigh down our every thought, behavior, and action.  It can distract us all throughout the day and keep us awake at night.  Our muscles work overtime just to carry it around, and yet we still hold onto it. It’s imperative that we stop feeling so guilty. That’s not to say that you shouldn’t feel guilt.  True guilt is a loving instrument from Spiritual Guidance used to convict, correct, and confirm your

Good morning. Technology companies need to constantly innovate.  That results in a high amount of money being spent on research and development, which in turn helps keep a company’s taxes lower than a company that makes the same product year-in, year-out. So it’s no surprise that regulators are always on the lookout for ways to try and get more taxes out of these massive firms that often have little to no earnings.  One proposal is being floated for a new generation of technology: a space tax.  Or, more specifically, a per-passenger tax on space flights like the ones just completed

Good morning. The rise of retail traders over the past year has likely saved a number of companies from bankruptcy, or helped bankrupt companies bounce back and exit bankruptcy faster.  That’s created a lot of interest in finding short squeeze stocks for big, fast profits.  It’s also driven traders into options to play the trend as well. One area can also be at play for big bucks: Corporate bond markets. Case in point, 2026 bonds for AMC Entertainment (AMC) traded as low as 5 cents on the dollar last year, but have no rallied back to par.  Buyers would have

Good morning. Investors sometime take a very binary approach to stocks.  They’re either all-in on a position, or they’re in cash or a different trade.  Rather than buy all at once, however, astute traders know when to average in.  As long as a company’s prospects don’t fundamentally change, this move allows investors to still have the option of cash, with the ability to buy more shares of a company when the market declines. So while Goldman Sachs (GS) recently warned clients not to buy Monday’s drop, retail investors saw a dip to buy instead.  With stocks hitting resistance at their

Good morning. The stock market was in freefall Monday, much like a mini-version of its March 2020 decline.  Is this the next big sell-off?  Probably not.  Monday’s fears, based on rising mask mandate re-impositions and a few select lockdown threats around the world, are likely being overblown. In the meantime, the bigger market concern is whether or not the current economic growth is sustainable.  The facts are that it will likely slow.  Not the best news, but not the worst news either.  And inflation expectations continue to rise.  But with a lumber market shouting “timber” as it comes back down
