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!”

How To Win The Day With every sunrise comes opportunity.  Each day is a figurative clean slate — another chance at getting it right and moving the ball closer to the goal line.  Regardless of what happened yesterday, we have the chance to start anew each morning. And the morning sets the tone for the entire day.  You own the morning, you win the day.  The happiest, healthiest, and most successful people know this.  They embrace it, and they use it to their advantage.  They build morning rituals to establish the foundation for the day. Here are 6 things they

Good morning. The biggest bombshell from the latest Fed meeting was the acknowledgement that inflation was coming in far higher than expected.  While the Fed continues its policy of trying to talk the market into always going up, some see a tapering of its asset purchases sooner rather than later. While that doesn’t mean higher interest rates right away, what it does mean is a big slowdown in money creation and addition to the central bank’s balance sheet.  That’s likely why both bond yields and gold prices have been dropping.  While tapering might spook the market, the prospect of lower

Good morning. Yesterday’s Federal Reserve meeting minutes kept interest rates at 0 percent, as expected.  And the Fed isn’t ready to taper its asset purchases (money printing) anytime soon.  But in trying to please everyone, the central bank sometimes ends up pleasing no one. The central bank made a big revision in its inflation estimates, from 2.4 percent to 3.4 percent.  While calling higher inflation “transitory,” the market isn’t so sure.  And, after the March meeting indicated no potential for an interest rate hike until 2024, there’s now an increasing possibility of a rate hike in 2023. The only real

Good morning. Michael Burry is a fund manager best known for going against the housing market in the runup to the meltdown.  Today, Burry sees inflation as the biggest threat to the economy.  And with prior stimulus measures boosting the price of everything from stocks to housing, the biggest threat is a nudge into hyperinflation.  Burry sees that happening this year.  Burry also sees the stock market as not only the greatest market bubble of all time, but the biggest by at least “two orders of magnitude.”  As investors adjust their return expectations for inflation, that bubble may burst. Time

Good morning. Most financial news is predicated around the idea that markets are either going up or down.  But sometimes, like now, indices are largely trading sideways.  When that happens, traders will start to look for clues as to what happens when the sideways trend ends. For most market conditions, a sideways trend can last anywhere from 6-12 months in part of a broader bull market.  That looks like the case here, given that most indices are still near all-time highs.  But it’s a time to find companies that have been hit the hardest and look set for the biggest

Good morning. There’s an old Wall Street saying that the cure for high prices is… high prices.  That’s because when prices are high, competition comes into play and customers seek substitutes.  Recent inflation data showing a jump in home and car prices (both new and used), is also leading to potential buyers to hold off on making a purchase. That could reduce demand enough to keep prices from heading higher in those areas.  A slowdown in governmental assistance to the economy in the form of stimulus checks and high spending may also help nip this rising inflation in the bud.
