Social JusticeGood morning.
Ronald Reagan once quipped that the nine scariest words in the English language were, “I’m from the government, and I’m here to help.”  So the announcement that the government has formed a “supply-chain disruption task force” may sound a bit like a prolonging of the problem rather than a solution of it.
The past year has shown the heavy hand of government intervention from local and state pandemic lockdowns to a near-universal basic income from stimulus checks and expanded unemployment benefits.
One simple place for the task force to start looking at solutions might be in scaling back those issues, which arguably helped create the disruptions in the first place.  Being a government task force, that’s not likely.  Expect further disruptions ahead.

Now here’s the rest of the news:

MarketingGood morning.
In sports, it’s really easy to see the winners and the losers.  Winners win and losers, well, lose.  The difficulty with the market is that there isn’t a finish line or a game clock.  It’s easy to tally points in terms of returns, but over what period of time?
Fund managers typically gauge their success on their perfor-mance against the S&P 500, but what about down years?  Are we to accept losses?  Right now, the market is in a precarious position of having to take increasing risk to belong, but the losses keep adding up if your short.  It’s this quandary that typically leads to market tops.

Here’s a lesson/message worthy of mention:

“If it’s up to me… it’s meant to be, and I’ll create the change I want to see.”
(Say this 3 times today)

So, today’s video is about the one principle that helps in times like this.

It reminds us how we start to create change in the first place.

Out this Monday morning flying a couple of drones!!!  Never happened!!!

“The Bear” slipped on the steps and bruised his wrist; and myself: The alternator on my “Caddy” packed it in!!!

Wasn’t totally bad … we enjoyed breakfast at A & W together; then sat outside in the sunshine & waited for an AMA tow truck to get ‘the caddy’ and I, back home!  [Thank for the company Barry]

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.
