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:

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.

“When trauma comes, we can learn from it, heal from it, and move through it.” –Dr. James Gordon Listen, Pause, Clarify and Validate Our ability to communicate effectively is one of the most precious skills we can develop.  Most of the time, when we think of communicating well, we think of effectively expressing ourselves.  This is certainly important, but listening is the single most important of all communication skills.  It’s what Stephen Covey calls “Seek first to understand and then to be understood.” Listen First and foremost, we must actively listen to what someone is saying.  Perhaps we were given

Good morning. Wednesday’s inflation numbers came in at a 15 year high.  But beyond the headlines, core inflation numbers have started to show a slowdown, with a rise of 0.2 percent from August.  It’s not a reversal, but a still-hidden sign that inflation may be moderating.  The bond market picked up on the news, with yields ticking down slightly. If that’s the case, then many of the fears impacting the market right now may go away.  That could explain part of Thursday’s rally, on top of the debt ceiling delay to December.  While we’re not out of the woods yet

Good morning. Inflation may be the headline story, but it’s just one factor that could impact corporate profitability this earnings season.  Many companies are able to pass on rising costs to customers from run-of-the-mill inflation.  But higher energy prices, which have been running hotter than official inflation measures, represent a much larger bill for many companies.  We’re already starting to see warnings on that front, including form airline companies, as oil prices hit a seven-year high. But there’s one more threat out there.  Last week, 136 nations signed an agreement on a minimum corporate tax rate of at least 15

Good morning. Earnings season is kicking off in earnest this week.  Typically, companies are able to beat expectations most of the time as Wall Street analysts adjust their expectations ahead of the results.  This time around, with companies coming off one-year numbers that look good from the lockdown era, combined with rising labor and energy costs, it’s possible that earnings may have peaked for the time being. If that’s the case, it comes down to guidance and expectations as to where the market goes from here into the end of the year.  With a labor market that’s still somewhat sluggish,

Good morning. One sign of an overvalued market occurs when company CEOs step down from their role, often after many years.  It’s tough to bow out at the top, and those who can will try to do so, rather than stay too long and get forced out after a bad decision or market events destroy shareholder value.  We saw a large rush of company executives leave in early 2020, just into the pandemic selloff. Now, that trend has slowed down.  But it’s not over yet.  Henry Kravis and George Roberts, founders of private equity giant KKR, are stepping down as

Good morning. The term “unicorn” was created to describe startup companies that had a valuation of over $1 billion based on their latest round of funding.  The notion was that such a company should be rare, as at that size it would make sense to take a company public. Yet today there are hundreds of unicorns.  The rare species has become a herd.  And none is bigger than SpaceX, the space exploration company run by Elon Musk.  A recent funding round has led the company to become the first centi-billionaire firm, with a valuation of over $100 billion. By the
