Face masks!Good morning.
Inflation fears are starting to subside.  One key reason?  A push to curb commodity prices.  China has already cracked down on commodity buying and trading, akin to the moves made to keep retail investors from buying GameStop (GME) shares back in February.  (Spoiler: That’s not working out so well.)
But all the stops are being pulled out.  News that Iran’s oil supply could return to world markets (or at least off the black market), has helped keep oil prices from surging even higher.  Even news that housing prices could start coming down in the next few quarters was greeted as a sign of declining inflation, rather than with the fear that would normally accompany such news.  While most commodities are getting crushed, gold prices continue to tick higher, indicating that this story isn’t over yet.

Now here’s the rest of the news:

China Is Paying Less Than 8% of Tariff Costs. Americans Are Paying the Rest –Eric Boehm,Reason
American consumers are bearing nearly 93 percent of the costs of the tariffs applied to Chinese goods, according to a new report.  And it gets worse… [Read Here]

Confusion ... What ConfusionGood morning.
I hope you all had a great long weekend and had an opportunity to visit family and become connected with loved ones that have passed on.  The open on Tuesday looked so promising going into the cash open, but immediately started wilting and never regained its overnight footing.
It was a unique session in that tech behemoths were lower, and financials shined.  As a result, it was a mixed picture on the S&P 500 as it finished 1.23% higher with the VIX also rising on the session.

Now here’s the rest of the news:

#1.  In the race for a COVID-19 cure…  Maybe this bit of news has been the most unexpected.  Scientists believe they’ve uncovered strains of cannabis that could combat the coronavirus.  Yes!  True.  Researchers at Canada’s University of Lethbridge, who have been studying cannabis for about 4-years to determine its possible therapeutic uses, recently decided to test its effects on the potential human body’s response to COVID-19.
Based on what appears to be a very preliminary study, Olga and Igor Kovalchuk – the married pair of scientists who hatched this idea – recently told a few Canadian media outlets that they were “totally stunned” …then “really happy” with the outcome.

#2.  Nobody’s talkin’ about it yet.  So most Americans still have absolutely no clue what’s actually going on.  But what’s happening in D.C., right now will result in the most dramatic Presidential election of our generation…
See, I think the panic we’re seeing, along with the economic turmoil that’s growing, creates an ideal scenario for a Socialist to eventually win the White House.
That’s because when the rich – a very small percentage of the population – get in trouble with debt, it’s an economic problem.  But when the poor and middle class – a HUGE percentage of the population – get in trouble with debt, it’s a political problem.
THIS is what the 2020 Election and every election for the foreseeable future will be all about…
So please – pay close attention to what I’m telling you today.  (If you’re an American), you have to take action personally to protect yourself from what’s right around the corner.  And you have to do it now – today – while the method of saving yourself are still cheap, easy, and legal.

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
