Graduation_05Good morning.
Technical analysis is a key part of any investor’s toolkit – it’s at least good to get an idea if a stock is heading up or down before buying shares.  Many technical analysts saw Friday’s sell-off as a point of caution, given that it caused the S&P 500 to drop to the lower end of a trend that it’s been in for several months.
That makes Monday’s reversal critical. While it doesn’t point to an immediate return to all-time highs for the S&P 500 (set last week), it increases the likelihood of markets continuing higher, rather than selling off in to the summer.  Seasonally, that makes sense as well.  Summer tends to be a quieter time, with bigger selloffs occurring in the autumn.

Now here’s the rest of the news:

The Pandemic Cost Us a Lot, but Taught This Valuable Lesson: The economic shock of the pandemic has forced many to reconsider their future plans.  One in three Americans postponed retirement.  That’s grim, but if we take a closer look, we’ll see a silver lining… [Read Here]

The Patience is OverGood morning.
“If you’re listening to the noise of the world it’s impossible to hear the whispers of your soul.”  –Marie Forleo

I hope everyone had a chance to wish their fathers happy Father’s Day over the weekend.  We can’t always be with the ones we love, but hopefully you had an opportunity express your gratitude for all the sacrifice that’s been made on your behalf.  my father
While I lost my father just over ten years ago, the things he taught me always come to mind.  I am where I am today because of him.

Received my “Big Al” Report quite a few weeks ago … but just got around to reading it!  It’s packed with a lot of great stuff.

Item #1:  How quickly do our prospect make their decisions?

I ask you, “Do you like the taste of coffee?” How long does it take you to make a decision?

I say to you, “You and l frequently complain about our job.  Do you want to have a cup of coffee with my friend who can give us at least one more option for an escape plan?”  How long does it take you to make a decision?

I say to you, “I lost 15 pounds with this new diet.  Do you want to try it?  We will lose our next 15 pounds together.”  How long does it take you to make a decision?

See a pattern?  Our prospects make up their minds to buy our products and services, or join or opportunity, almost instantly. 

The decision comes first, and then come the details.

Item #2:  Do we have busy prospects?

I hope so … just not too busy to listen!

If our prospects feel like they are too busy to participate in our opportunity, it’s a safe bet that they don’t want to feel that way for the rest of their lives.  They have to do something to change this.

Here is the solution.  Now, anyone can fit our business into their busy lifestyles.                                        ==>>

To a great day!  🙂

I was getting a bit long-winded on my last post … but this is where I was headed!  I believe everyone is looking for something!  Two of those some THINGS are health and wealth … I’ve never met anyone that could not use a little more … OR A LOT MORE … of health and/or of wealth.

A big part of ME is my Network Marketing love!  YES … I LOVE THE NETWORK MARKETING PROFESSION.

And although I do not own the profession, the profession enables me to conduct my business in a manner that best-suits ME.  Because I want many, many hundreds of others to experience and rejoice in “the biz” as well, I take an approach to prospecting that is completely with-out stress.  In fact, I despise the word prospecting.  I ask my new acquaintance or friend, “Hey, l’m just curious.  Would you be at all open to a side project if it didn’t interfere with what you’re currently doing?” OR “What are your thoughts about the use of Essential Oils?

If they’re not open, I DON’T proceed to the next step.

I might say, “No.” … “Okie-dokie.  Have a great day. ”

If I’m feeling a little courageous, and have the time, I might add, “Okay, cool.  No problem.  Just curious.  Do you know anyone that might want to make some extra money if we showed him/her step by step how to do it?”

Maybe I’ll get some referrals.  Or, maybe they’ll say, “Wait a minute here.  Step by step?  That really rings my bell.”

I just posted about “the very I script I use,” on my Facebook page, and before it is lost with the passing of time — here it is again!

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
