Business_2Good morning.
When Coinbase (COIN) went public in April, it coincided with a high price in Bitcoin.  When AOL and Time Warner merged in the late 1990s, it heralded the end to the tech bubble of the time.  In 2007, real estate billionaire Sam Zell sold off his holdings, a year before the biggest real estate crash in US history.
There’s something about a big merger or IPO that could be a sign of a market making its final top before having a bear market.  This time around, the harbinger might be Robinhood.  The brokerage firm just filed its IPO paperwork.  And just like Coinbase earlier this year, company insiders aren’t looking at a lockup period. Instead, they’ll be allowed to sell shares on day 1.  At least when the tech bubble burst, traders could get in ahead of the lockup expiration for the best profits on the downside.
It may prove to be a market peak, but only in hindsight will that be fully known.  It’s still a good sign to stay cautious, and wait until insiders are done selling before buying shares if they suit your taste.

Now here’s the rest of the news:

Fed Must Choose: Stock collapse or Hyperinflation
The U.S. economy has arrived at a fork in the road.  The Fed must now choose between two equally disastrous outcomes: Either crashing the stock market or pouring jet fuel on the hyperinflation fire… [Read Here]

I know it’s going to sound weird, but I actually stumbled upon this when I misspelled a word search on YouTube.

What I watched was the unfurling of one of the greatest innovations of our lifetime.  This video explained a new gene-editing method called CRISPR-Cas9.  Through this gene-editing method, humans could be genetically edited to be born with gills and wings.  They could weather the harsh environments of other planets.  They could be born with high IQs.  Heck, in theory, you could even program your spouse to hang their coat up, or put their dirty socks in the laundry.  [I did some of my own research.]

It turns out CRISP-Cas9 has been in the news for the last couple of years.  In 2014, it became the subject of a fairly well-publicized patent war.  That war was between two major universities and their respective scientists.  It looks like we’re actually fairly far away from flying and/or being water-adept humans.

That doesn’t make CRISPR-Cas9 any less extraordinary.

Currently, this technology is being used to target more immediate issues than surviving on other planets.  I’m talking about diseases that kill … Cancer, Alzheimer’s, and HIV…

Wikipedia explains: CRISPR is a family of DNA sequences found within the genomes of prokaryotic organisms such as bacteria and archaea.  These sequences are derived from DNA fragments from viruses that have previously infected the prokaryotic and are used to detect and destroy DNA from similar viruses during subsequent infections.

You may be in awe hearing this.  I know I was.  I feel like I am watching the next age of medicine emerge.

In the United States, an average of $173 billion is spent every year on cancer research.  Heart disease treatment cost another $200 million annually.  Then there is diabetes, which is on the rise and costs Americans $245 billion annually.  Those are some big numbers, and they aren’t even the worst.  Alzheimer’s, one of the scariest disease to any aging human (which is all of us), cost Americans $259 billion a year!

I wasn’t just wasting time!  😉

Do You Have A Purpose? It’s true that in order to live our purpose in this world, we’ve got to have a vision and a plan for achieving our dreams.  We must be tenacious in working toward our goals, and we might occasionally have to sacrifice a little sleep for that dream.  However, our “hustle at any cost” culture has convinced us that this means choosing between success and quality of life (e.g. health, happiness and fulfillment).  This either/or mindset is not just inaccurate — it actually threatens our bottom lines and secretly sabotages success. The stress, exhaustion and decision

Good morning. Shortages or not, we’ve all seen rising prices on store shelves as a sign of inflation.  In some cases, prices have stayed the same, but the size of a package has shrunk.  This is a way to mask higher prices through a process known as shrinkflation.  But there are other ways to note the bite of higher price as well.  One such way?  The loss of amenities. For example, many hotels are now ditching their complimentary breakfasts.  While such food wasn’t necessarily good, it was a way to entice travelers to stay at a low additional cost.  With

Good morning. We’ve noted a few times over the past few months to get that holiday shopping done extra early this year thanks to supply chain disruptions.  But given some of the latest delays and reports from companies reporting earnings this year, the next thing on your holiday shopping list just might be groceries. While we’re not seeing the toilet paper shortage of last year, shortages in chicken, fish sticks, coffee among other food staples appear likely in the coming weeks.  And products such as diapers are seeing high demand right now as well.  Even if those shortages are resolved,

Good morning. The stock market has a number of seasonal patterns to it.  While it’s well-known that stocks tend to rally into the end of the year, in what’s known as the “Santa Claus” rally, that rally tends to start earlier than many expect.  This year, the start date is likely the first day of November, less than two weeks away. Why?  Because right now we’re in the midst of earnings season, when company insiders are locked out from buying or selling shares.  Companies are also in a lockout period for share buybacks.  And it’s those buybacks that have been

Good morning. Bull markets end on euphoria, but not until they’ve gone on far longer than many expect.  That seems to be the case in the commodity markets right now.  While traders are still considering that the price of a barrel of oil may hit $100, some are starting to bet that will just be a stop along the way to $200 per barrel, which would be a new all-time high for the commodity. And thanks to the recent uranium rally, a new fund that will hold physical uranium has been announced to take advantage of that move.  The announcement
