Economist-Stephen-RoachGood morning.
Dire prediction from former Morgan Stanley Chairman Stephen Roach:

“The dollar is going to fall very, very sharply.” 

And bank “confusion” could have something to do with it.  Looks like yet another economic ripple effect from COVID-19 is starting to become visible, and this one could have truly devastating consequences.

More personally, “How you all doing”?  [At the almost mid-year point of 2020] with Canada Day and the 4th of July so close… Really… “How are you doing”?

It’s an interesting time, eh?

Not something any of us might have thought we would go through in our lifetime.

Every morning, l get up (maybe you, too) and I face what seems to be “the new reality.”

My wife and l laugh as we check in with each other on what the day holds — Not much!

Staying focused can be a challenge … And, that is just a “thought” and a choice.

Hear these words: Now, more than ever, staying relevant is important.  Staying in front of those who you SERVE.

Please!  Get clear on that word — SERVE.

“Do less of the things that don’t matter, so you can do more of the things that get you results.”  @katenorthrup

We all want everything to go well for us, to get what we want or to feel happy, content and satisfied.  The more we tell ourselves that ‘story,’ that our lives are supposed to be good, that’s what we start living as our experience.  However, we live in a material world that gives us contrasting experiences – sometimes the opposite of what we want.  Actually we should be more dumb!  Darren explains:

Actually we ourselves create the problem or the challenge because it heightens our desire and helps us get really clear about what we want.  Here’s why:

  • The contrast can be very valuable to you … if you focus on the desire that the contrast has shown you or created for you.
  • Worrying … dwelling in a problem and focusing on it, you aren’t using the challenge properly!
  • The challenge you have invited into your life shows you what you don’t want … so that you can get really clear about what you do want.
  • The trick is to get your focus off of what you don’t want … and to look at what you do want.
  • When you are looking at what you want … you attract more of what you want, and feel.

“When you focus on the problem what do you think you get?  Right, more problems.”

Very thought provoking stuff!  🙂

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
