What can you do when you’re stuck at home?… The home biz is booming…  A time to invest in ‘hard assets‘… Homebuying is on the rise… Mortgage rates are near all-time lows…  inside Lowe's

When you’re mostly stuck at home with nothing else to do…

Why not finally tackle that home-improvement project that you’ve put off for days, months, or even years?

Sure, honey, I’ll get right on fixing that broken light…

Yup, let’s just redo the basement floor; too…

Of course, I can paint that entire room by myself…

As we’ve written over the past few months, the COVID-19 pandemic has widely exposed the existing problems and issues of many industries — as well as those of our government…
And a global economic shutdown also accelerated virus-proof, recession-proof persistent trends that were already in place, too — like online ordering and cloud-based software companies that don’t totally rely on the “physical” world or “old economy” to do business.
For instance doesn’t e-commerce giant Amazon (AMZN) feel basically like a utility?  And at the same time, it’s one of the few big companies hiring hourly workers to keep up with demand.  {No résumé required for $15 per hour.}
Fellow tech giants Apple (AAPL) and Google (GOOGL) have finally unveiled their COVID-19 tracking technology.  Call it “contact tracing” in the cloud.  But things are still happening in the “real world,” too.  On the ground, oil demand is picking back up.  In the air, folks are starting to buy airline tickets again.  And in our homes, all along the way, a lot of people are looking around their own properties and saying, “Let’s do that.”
Based on the latest earnings reports this week from the two leading home-improvement retailers in the U.S. — Home Depot (HD) and Lowe’s (LOW) — business is booming…

Home Depot and Lowe’s each posted quarterly numbers that indicate strong demand for their services…

My most surprising lesson in business AND Network Marketing?

Was when I found out about the four colour personalities.  I didn’t know.  I thought all personalities thought similarly… but they don’t.

This explained a lot of my initial frustration with prospects.  We don’t know that 3 out of 4 prospects think and make decisions differently than we do!

And it goes further

Knowing which colour personality our prospects are is very important, as well as how they see us.  We may think we are a certain colour personality but prospects could see us differently.

Want a quick 5-question test that shows how prospects see us?  It only takes one minute.  Here is the link:                                                     https://bigalbooks.com/color-quiz

Just remember this: “Whoever has the best story … wins!”

Good morning. In spite of 7 percent inflation rates right now, consumers are continuing to spend.  While their overall confidence has dropped, the actual spending itself shows that the economy, largely dominated by such spending, is likely to continue moving higher this year. If inflation rates start to decline in the coming months, the market could be setting up for a solid return as the current fears abate.  Given the latest data showing that consumers continue to be interested in buying homes, automobiles, and appliances this year, even a small change higher in interest rates will unlikely derail the economy’s

Good morning. On Friday, the stock market broke its 200-day moving average lower for the first time since July 2020.  Stocks are looking at oversold levels going into the weekend, with many names down much further than the overall stock market index.  But yesterday’s wild trading saw a massive drop reverse into a gain at the close. This reversal could be a sign of capitulation by sellers, and that the worst of the current decline is over.  With leveraged traders already wiped out, and plenty of cash from retail and institutional investors on the sidelines, the market could see a

Good morning. Markets had $3.3 trillion reasons to be volatile last week.  That was based on the notational value of options expiring on Friday.  That included $1.3 trillion for individual stock positions alone, the second-highest on record.  Traders repositioning those trades ahead of expiration last week may have contributed to the big selloff, which finally started reversing on Friday as Treasury yields started coming back down. Given the growth of options trading, this phenomenon of added volatility into options expiration weeks may continue for the foreseeable future.  While February’s contracts are far lower in value, the next big hump will

Today! January 23, 2021 “Creativity is an action, not a feeling.  Your work is too important to be left to how you feel today.”  –Seth Godin Power Thought That Raises Awareness Whenever we’re talking about personal transformation — whether it’s physical (lose weight), financial (get out of debt), mental (overcome anxiety), spiritual, relational (repair a broken relationship), etc. — what we’re really talking about is change.  And for most, that can be scary.  In fact, many people don’t even entertain the idea of change until the pain of not changing becomes unbearable. In other words, you have to be ready and willing

Today! January 22, 2021 Good morning. The trade war.  The pandemic.  The election.  All the big catalysts that can move markets up or down are now off the table.  So what’s next?  Until a new catalyst emerges, expect markets to drift. With markets in a long-term uptrend, the drift will likely be higher.  Individual names can still have some big news on corporate announcements and earnings reports.  And look for potential catalysts that could provide the market’s next big move, whether higher (stimulus) or lower (war, pandemic, today’s high valuations). Now here’s the rest of the news: A “Cash Panic”

01-JANUARY 21-2022

Good morning. Fears of rising inflation are likely to peak this year.  That’s good news.  And with news that major spending bills would be broken up, the likelihood of further fiscal stimulus to drive inflation higher is also likely to help there. In other areas, however, the economy is showing signs of a slowdown.  Jobless claims have risen to a three-month high.  Home sales have slowed after a massive boom in the past 18 months.  And now, expectations are that the trans-Pacific cargo trade are now rising to a three month wait time on average.  With a longer wait time

Good morning. While the stock market has largely been focused on rising interest rates in the past few weeks, the start to earnings season this week has been subdued.  Many of the big banks have started to report numbers.  And banks should be faring well even with higher rates of inflation going on right now. However, bank earnings have overall been lacklustre, as many banks have reported trading losses that have offset the gains made from a big year for mergers and IPOs. If bank earnings aren’t enough to get the markets excited and moving higher, chances are we’re in
