                                                                           Good morning.
Back thenI always consider July 4th as the first day of summer.  I guess that’s because it’s the first holiday of the summer and it seems summer plans start to heat up.  While this year may be lesser in terms of travel plans, it makes you wonder whether the market will have fewer bullish or bearish plans as well.  There’s a lot of talk about masks for good reasons, but most of the masks I’ve tried aren’t that great.  They leak around the top of your nose and below your mouth.  They fall down.  They are hot and uncomfortable … and, frankly, most don’t work that well.

Now here’s the rest of the news:

The Ax Has Fallen In Hong Kong

The Chinese government has officially imposed a national security law on the island of Hong Kong — Asia’s financial hub — that ends the territory’s “special” status.
In other words, it destroys the autonomy and freedom that made capitalism- and democracy-loving Hong Kong different from China for more than two decades.

Kim Iskyan wrote about this proposed measure in the May 26 Digestand now, China is imposing it.

As the Economist explains, it gives Chinese leaders in Beijing “sweeping power to crush dissent in the territory using its own secret police and even its own courts” and “is one of the biggest assaults on a liberal society since the second world war.”
The law broadens the definition of, and increases the punishment for, crimes labeled as terrorism, subversion, secession, and collusion with foreign powers.
An old friend of mine in Hong Kong put it this way…
                                         “Hong Kong is China now: There’s nothing else to say.”

We might be one “Hello” away from meeting the person that will change our life.

Learn the four colour personalities in one hour!

Which colour personality are you?  Your prospects?

Discover the secret language of each colour personality.

Hi, Keith and Tom “Big Al” Schreiter here.

When closing yellow personalities, we should understand their priorities:

  1. Help more people.  Yellow personalities find happiness and fulfillment by helping others.
  2. A community.  They love relationships and a feeling of belonging to a team.
  3. A mission.  A campaign to improve people’s health provides a sense of purpose.
  4. Connections.  For many yellow personalities, a connection with their sponsors and fellow team members is the reason to join.

This makes it easier to know what to say.  So here are some closing examples:

    • “Start thinking of exactly who you want to help now.”
    • “Having a new career helping people either works for you, or it doesn’t.  So, what would you like to do?”
    • “We can do this together.  Let’s start now.”
    • “You seem to love what we are doing.  Let’s work together.”
    • “With your help, we can affect more lives.  Will you help us share this?”

Would these closing sentences work with the other personality types?  Not really.  We need to understand who we are talking with, and then our closing sentences will resonate with them.

Keep Smiling … friends will wonder what you’re up to!  🙂

Good morning. Hedge funds have been selling their tech stocks for 9 of the past 10 sessions, based on brokerage data.  What’s more, these funds have been selling more than they own, essentially going short.  That’s a huge reason for the weakness in tech in the past few weeks, even as the overall markets remain near all-time highs. The last time funds were this short was back in late December, right before a surge in some smaller-cap tech names in January and February.  Based on this data, traders may want to look at some call options on the tech space

Good morning. Most sectors of the economy have been on fire this year.  But, there’s one area that’s steeply in a bear market.  It’s the media, more specifically the news media.  Cable news outlets have reported viewer drops as much as 50 percent.  And the New York Times Company (NYT) reported a sharp slowdown in growth. It’s no surprise that the news media benefited in the past few years from the public’s interest in all things Donald Trump.  Now, with Trump out of the White House and the media avoiding stories about him, it’s no surprise that viewers are going

Good morning. It’s been a great earnings season.  But companies like Amazon (AMZN) are now in correction territory, down 10 percent, since reporting record blowout numbers.  Other big tech names are in the same spot.  And smaller tech plays?  They’re likely already in a bear market. It’s a combination of factors at work.  The first is rising inflation numbers. The second is the prospect of higher interest rates to curb inflation.  And finally there’s the fact that companies are coming off of earnings that look great compared to a year ago at the start of the pandemic.  All these factors

Good morning. Online auction site eBay (EBAY) became huge in the 1990s thanks to the demand for Beanie Babies.  As the central site for that fad, the company was able to expand and survive the internet bubble. Now, the company is looking to enable cryptocurrency payments, to better serve its customers.  It’s also looking to break into the NFT, or non-fungible token market.  NFTs are digital assets like a picture or song.  While they can be copied, blockchain data provides the owner of the NFT with the assurance that they are, in fact, the original owner.  NFTs have been big

Good morning. The stock market had its steepest and shortest bear market last year, with a contraction of nearly 30 percent within the span of a month.  Now, a year into a recovery, the rally in stocks has started to slow. One reason? Growing policy uncertainty.  Stocks sold off Friday as a Fed President made the case for housing getting into bubble territory and a need for interest rate hikes next year.  Just like in the early 2020s, in the post-financial crisis rebound, fears of reduced monetary policy are usually good to create a pullback in markets. We’re still a

Nichols May 02, 2020 You’re one of those people who are stuck in their ways. It’s hard for you to change your routine. We’ve all heard of the saying “You can’t teach an old dog new tricks.” In reality, you can’t change your mind without a commitment to change.  Most people are ‘checked out.’
