MedicalGood 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 moves ahead when a bull run starts.

Now here’s the rest of the news:

Little Engine "that could"
Sometimes it’s difficult to believe!

Good morning.
A runaway locomotive is difficult to stop even for Superman.  A runaway market is similar in that it can seem to perpetually move higher for a long period of time.
However, as is true to form, this week saw the market finish climbing up the stairs and fell out of the window.  The window was nearly a 6% drop on Thursday, but the selling may not be over.  Like the locomotive, there is a good chance that the bullish train hasn’t stopped but just slowed.

Now here’s the rest of the news:

“I choose beliefs that can support me and the goals and dreams I have.”
(Say this 3 times today)

  • Real talk… Your results are a complete reflection of the pre-conditioned beliefs you have in your life.
  • If you change your non-supportive beliefs to supportive ones… Your results change, as well.
  • Why?  Because your beliefs create your thoughts.  Your thoughts create your feelings, and your feelings create your actions… which equals your RESULTS.
  • After years of working with students and their beliefs, I’ve identified the 3 beliefs that sabotage you… Or skyrocket your success, depending on what they are.

Powerful ‘stuff” eh!

“If you don’t take care of your body, where else are you going to live?”

We woke up nice and early this morning; as at 9:00 AM, Glenda arrives to give my wife and me a massage!

It feels so good I suggest more people take a few minutes out-of-their-day to unwind and de-stress.  I admit to being a bit sore after several days of cycling.  Glenda comes to our home, has a coffee with us, sets up her massage table, and before noon Glenda is paid, packed up, and driven by her husband to her next appointment.  While Caryl or I receive our massage, the other is free to work on ‘something else’ until it’s our turn … fabulous concept!

As the TV commercial says, “Eat your heart out Ryan!”

Today “small town” in Newfoundland is… Salt Harbour. May 15, 2021 Struggling … how to break bad habits? “Nothing is impossible.  The word itself say, ‘I’m possible.’” –Audrey Hepburn There’s no one single reason why we struggle — to break bad habits, achieve our goals, or excel in our desired domain — but more often than not, the biggest challenge is sitting between your two ears. Yes, your mind is incredibly powerful, and quite frankly, it’s a double-edge sword.  The stories you tell yourself, the things you believe about yourself, and the way you talk to yourself can either be

Today! May 14, 2021 Good morning. One year ago, oil prices went negative as traders feared that the pandemic would lead to prolonged drops in oil use and got caught in trades they couldn’t get out of.  Today, oil and gasoline prices have held up well in inventory reports.  However, supply issues remain in the South and up and down the East Coast, even as Colonial pipeline paid a $5 million ransom to the hackers who shut down their system.  A number of states have declared emergencies as supplies have run low. It just goes to show that oil, one

Good morning. Meme stocks are back!  Well, sort of. A spike in companies like AMC Entertainment (AMC) and GameStop (GME) occurred yesterday.  GameStop was even halted multiple times on the way up (but not on the way down).  Oddly, this may be an early sign that markets are looking for a short-term bottom, given the sharp reversals higher. On CNBC, analyst Jim Cramer came out against the traders of meme stocks using sites like Reddit’s Wall Street Bets, to find the meme stock opportunities in the first place.  Tough words for someone whose television show features sound effects.  But for

Good morning. The good news?  Inflation has slightly slowed on a year-over-year basis, for the first time in seven months.  The bad news?  It’s still high at 8.3 percent.  And it came in higher than expectations. Looking at the data shows some reasons for the unexpected strength.  Most components of CPI still rose more than 6 percent in April.  But soaring food prices – which we’ve warned about fairly often — were a big contributor.  Another big move higher was record airfare prices, as high fuel costs and a reopened economy drove prices up. The data doesn’t give too much

Good morning. Typically, growth stocks lead the market.  That’s because these companies have the ability to scale up rapidly, and one of the best signs of a stock heading higher over the long haul is increased earnings. Yet every few years, value stocks have their time to shine.  A year ago, Warren Buffett’s performance as being derided.  Yet he’s buying stocks now.  In contrast, Ark Innovation, the hypergrowth fund managed by Cathie Wood, is now not just down relative to Buffett — but it’s underperforming the S&P 500 since its inception. Can these trends reverse in time?  Yes.  Will they

Good morning. Any econ 101 student can tell you that there’s a lag effect between something like, say, the creation of trillions of dollars in spending, and inflation rates reflecting that.  We’re seeing that trend play out today, with the highest inflation levels in decades. The good news?  Some of that new money first went to financial markets, rather than in goods and services.  That helped keep many things affordable, especially during the initial lockdown phase of the pandemic.  But today, we’re seeing the impacts of those past lockdowns (and current ones).  And we’re seeing that handing out money directly

Good morning. People don’t mind inflation when it hits things like assets.  When stocks and home prices are rising, consumers feel wealthier.  This “wealth effect” tends to be beneficial to spending, which then become a self-fulfilling prophecy. The 2009-2020 market rally started with this effect.  The bank bailouts propped up the banks, but didn’t cause inflation on Main Street.  Today, thanks to the stimulus measures during the pandemic, Main Street went on a spending binge.  That’s caused a reverse wealth effect as the prices of goods like food and utilities are rising at a rapid rate — but now asset
