Good morning.
History may not repeat itself, but it does rhyme.  In 1994, the economy was showing rapid growth and signs of higher inflation.  Back then, the Fed was willing to quickly raise interest rates.  Now, with similar signs of growth and inflation, the Fed is talking about potentially raising rates in about 18 months.  And it’s buying billions of dollars of bonds each month, something the bank wasn’t doing in the early 1990s.
In other words, we may have seen this exact scenario before.  While the Fed’s policy in the 1990s eventually became accommodative and helped fuel the tech bubble, at the time, raising rates allowed inflation to fall.  Time will tell if inflation rates slow on their own as the economy reopens and fiscal stimulus comes to an end, but the prospect of higher inflation will likely continue to weigh on markets.

Now here’s the rest of the news:

Gold Really Shines Compared to 5 Percent Inflation: While one market faction bets on interest rate hikes and a tighter Fed, another watches not a fantasy, but the reality of surging inflation.  Simply considering the strengths of hopes compared facts, there’s a strong case for gold… [Read Here]

A-Brisk-WalkGood morning.
Even before COVID, Intel apologized in November to its customers and partners regarding the delays they were having in their business.  In an industry that is centered on just-in-time delivery, it doesn’t bode well when you’re late.  For a company that has been the leader for so long, manufacturing delays and the fact their behind ADM on 7nm microchips is a huge deal.

P.S. How do we meet people virtually?

The same way we meet people in person.  However, because we don’t have the person-to-person body language and visual connection, our words will have to be more powerful.

What should we say?  How should we do this?  Here’s the book that explains each step.

In less than one week, half the year will be behind us … what are you going to get done this week?

It’s like a party gone bad …

You’ve already been through your warm market …

They want VERY LITTLE to do with you …

They want absolutely NOTHING to do with your business …

Maybe you’re lucky and this is your first rodeo but still after a couple months of recruiting hard …

You simply run out of your friends and family.

You’ve got to keep going.  You’ve got to find new people to do it (your business, that is) or you’ll fail.  It’s pretty dang simple to understand.

You know you’re awesome and you know you’re incredible because I tell you that all the time.  God has put you here for a reason.  It’s just time we took you to an entirely different level.

What is behind Door #1 is great… [Tomorrow we’ll examine door #2]

In this training (Live Facebook Recruiting we teach you how to find people that you want to talk to.  Yes, completely cold and new…  Make sure you watch the entire thing.  You may even watch it over and over again.

That would probably be very good for you.  Remember, on Facebook people hang in groups, not a lot different than in the real world.  You need to find a target market or target customer that you’ll be going after time after time.  Why?

Because then you can serve them and be really good at closing them.  How do you make a good post on Facebook if you have NO IDEA who you’re posting to?  Yes, EXACTLY!

Anyhow, figure out how to find people to talk to…

Talk with you soon,

Friends

Friendships can lead to good working relationships.

I must share this quick “Friends!” story.

Two friends were walking through a dense jungle.  Knowing the dangers, they promised to stick together whatever happened.

Suddenly a tiger appeared in the bushes.  One friend immediately turned and ran, climbing up a tree and leaving his companion behind. He watched as his friend dropped to the ground and played dead.

The tiger approached, sniffed around, and leaned down, seemingly whispering something in the man’s ear.  It roared once, then stalked away.  Feeling ashamed, the other man climbed back down the tree.  “What did the tiger say to you?”

The man looked up. “He said, ‘Never trust a false friend.”‘

Some days, you just need to know you have got a friend.

The point is you need to feel that someone “gets” you and is in your corner.  With all the push, pull and tug that can go on in the workplace (and it happens everywhere, folks, even at the good places), you have to develop your own support systems — and friends can be invaluable. Good ones are like rocks; they keep us anchored during our personal storms.

You probably spend most of your waking hours at work, so friendships are natural.  Working together can easily turn co-workers into best friends, making jobs more enjoyable and the workplace a home away from home instead of just away to make a living.

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
