UFOGood morning.
Inflation fears have risen over the past few weeks.  With the amount of new money in circulation up by 25-30 percent over the past year due to the pandemic chasing about the same amount of goods and services, it’s a classic recipe for inflation.
But the lockdowns also created big shifts in consumer trends, which in turn have created a number of supply chain issues.  From toilet paper last year to gasoline this year, shortages can drive up prices faster than money creation can either.
One big jump in prices amidst these supply chain issues?  Container shipping fees.  It’s gone from beyond $4,000 per forty-food equivalent unit to $8,000 to $10,000.  Rising transportation costs threaten to raise the prices of any goods that haven’t risen yet.  That could lead to stagflation, where we see inflation continue to wreak havoc on a slowly-growing economy.

Now here’s the rest of the news:

More Confusion Than Ever
More Confusion Than Ever…

Good morning.
In the Fed minutes on Wednesday, nothing really new was divined about the Fed or the economy.   They stand prepared to buy anything and the economy is a shell of its former self.  Got it.  Investors are goal-seeking to find a way to buy.
For example, rates are going to remain low for a long time because of a weak economy, and so it makes today’s price look more attractive.  Sometimes the irrationality of the market continues much longer than bears can stand, but the trillions at the Fed’s disposal has to go somewhere.

Six Things You Need To Focus On!

I wanted to share 6 areas that I think are key to focus on to make you feel healthier.

Hydrate, hydrate, hydrate.  Shockingly, it’s estimated that 3 out of 4 Americans are walking around chronically dehydrated.  This is bad, bad news considering that water makes up 60 – 70% of your body and affects every corner of health and well-being — including metabolism, detoxification, digestion, inflammation, appearance, and cognitive function to name a few.  The solution?  Drink at least 8 – 12 eight-ounce glasses of water per day.

Fill nutritional gaps with a multivitamin.  Like we’ve talked about before, a high-quality multivitamin is like a nutrition insurance policy to make sure that you are getting all the valuable micronutrients you need on a daily basis.  After all, experts agree that there is a nutritional gap between today’s diet and what is required for optimal health, and researchers concur that everyone should be taking a daily multivitamin because it offers safe, simple micronutrient insurance.

Stock your kitchen with all the best tools.  This isn’t as sexy as other fat-burning and metabolism-boosting tips, but if you truly want to eat healthy consistently, you need to make sure you have all the tools you’ll need to prepare meats at home.  For cutting boards, choose wood over plastic.  For pots, pans, and other storage containers, using glass, ceramic, and stainless steel are the best options with the least toxicants.  Other essentials include a pressure cooker and/or slow cooker, blender, and good knives — although we could make a case for about a dozen other kitchen gadgets.

Choose a workout routine and find an accountability partner.  Surely you’ve heard the saying if you fail to plan, you plan to fail.  Well, that holds true for your fitness regimen as well.  Make sure you have a progressive exercise program that’s appropriate for your fitness level and experience and conducive to your goals.  Also, find an accountability partner — a trainer, friend, spouse, or fellow gym goer — to help keep you on track and to help push yourself.

Know your temptations and aiternatives to satisfy them.  Despite the best-laid plans and good intentions, temptations will strike.  Identify any triggers that you can — time of day, emotions, stress, people, places, etc. — and prepare contingency plans.  One of the biggest keys to overcoming tempta-tion is mindfulness.  Don’t rely on will power alone.  Come up with solutions.  Have healthy snacks handy.  Practice meditation and deep breathing.  Work on distraction techniques (call a friend, write a thank you note, read a book, take a walk).

Commit to a consistent self-care routine.  No matter what you do, make time and space for yourself and a self-care routine.  It’s not selfish.  Investing in yourself means you can serve others more effec-tively and genuinely.  There’s no one-size-fits-all self-care routine.  Consider a gratitude journal, medi-tation, yoga, booking a message, taking a walk, sitting in the sauna, or sunbathing.  Whatever floats your boat and fills up your tank is what’s best!

Ten Ways To Foster Innovation In order to compete effectively, we must look for new and better ways to accomplish our mission.  We must find creative methods to delight our customers.  And we must find innovative strategies for getting more done with fewer resources. With things changing as rapidly as they are, doing things the old way won’t be profitable for very long.  To grow, we must be constantly innovating. An innovative company attracts and keeps better employees.  People want to be part of something creative.  It’s stimulating and it’s fun. Here are ten things you can do to foster

Good morning. We’re fans of following company insiders when they buy their own shares.  That’s because they only buy if they see a good value going forward.  Most company insiders are partially compensated in shares, so they have plenty of reasons to sell, from portfolio diversification to big spending bills like a second house or divorce. Overall, buying with company insiders produces excess returns compared to the market.  But they’re not the only insider group out there. Consider Congress.  Last year, two senators sold off stocks after an early hearing on Covid and before the big crash.  House Speaker Nancy

Good morning. Yesterday marked the 13th anniversary of the collapse of Lehman Brothers, a “victim” of over leverage on the US housing market.  Yesterday also marked the day when Evergrande, a Chinese real estate firm, stated that it wouldn’t pay interest on its already-collapsing bonds. For years, many have warned about the size and rate of China’s real estate buildup, from empty cities to investment homes that sit unused (one of the few places where citizens can park cash).  While we’re optimistic that the damage can be contained to China and not impact global growth too much, we also can’t

Good morning. We’ve warned for weeks that stocks are at elevated levels, and that a modest pullback would be likely.  Now, however, investor sentiment has gotten heavily bearish, for more than just a small pullback. That’s somewhat concerning, as fears of a market pullback could lead to enough profit-taking and cash-raising that it becomes a self-fulfilling prophecy.  However, a market so quick to get so bearish could also be a sign that there’s still a major rally ahead.  Bull markets don’t die when investors get fearful.  Rather, it’s when investors get so bullish that they go all-in at record highs.

Good morning. With Labor Day weekend over, oil prices should be trending down.  The summer driving season in North America is over, and it’s largely an American phenomenon.  However, expectations for a potentially colder-than-average winter are keeping a bid under oil prices right now. At a time when traders typically expect lower prices going forward, oil is now at a 5-week high and trending higher.  And Bank of America analysts see crude oil pumping as much as $100 per barrel under an exceptionally cold winter scenario.  It’s likely that gas prices may remain higher for longer than expected, and can

Good morning. Last week, Treasury Secretary Janet Yellen warned that the measures underway to preserve cash at the US Treasury were likely to run out in mid-October.  Unless Congress acts to raise the debt ceiling, there could be a potentially debt cliff where a number of government programs simply don’t get paid. That’s a scenario that nearly unfolded in 2011. 10 years ago, it also provided the stock market with a flat return for the year and a closest thing to a selloff since the housing crisis two years before that.  Last week’s market weakness may be starting to reflect
