Bits and Boobs … no not those boobs!

1. Tips for building your credit.

  • Be sure to make your payments on time, and pay more than the minimum monthly payment to pay off your balance quicker.
  • Keep an eye on your credit limit – don’t go over it, as this could impact your credit rating.
  • Make a credit budget to plan your payment schedule.

2. July… halfway through the year!  It is a great time where millions and millions are in serious credit card debt.  Why?  Because of the holidays?  The holidays are supposed to be some of the happiest times of the year , but for most people, it quickly turns into the most stressful time of the year.  Financially, this is where more people overspend and go into debt than any other time of the year.

3. The reason why worry kills more people than work does – is that more people worry than work!

4. Who’s going to buy the Int’l Space Station?  [Is it sold?  Who bought?  No idea.]

5. What do professional chefs think about the the use of microwave ovens to cook food?  [The distaste for using a microwave in a professional kitchen has nothing to do with disruption of molecules, how it cooks, or anything about what it does to food.  It is more about setting the food up properly; covering the dish; transferring odors; type of foods; etcetera.]

6. Back in December, 1917, A leading Gold analyst said he could see the metal hitting $1,700/oz or higher in 2018.  Did it happen, and if so, how is Gold doing today?  [Sorry to hear today! it is just over $1416/oz.] 

7. And Finally.  How we repeat our mistakes.

    • Success comes from good judgment.
    • Good judgment comes from experience.
    • Experience comes from bad judgment.

Many years ago, an attorney, Barry LePatner, made the following statement:

“Good judgment is usually the result of experience.  And experience is frequently the result of bad judgment.  But to learn from the experience of others … requires those who have the experience to share the knowledge with those who follow.”

Make this the best, rest of the year, ever!  🙂

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.’

Today! May 01, 2020 Gold Prices Going to “Pop” to $2,700 … Easily “Despite a weakened economy, stocks continue to rise on the back of monetary stimulus, which is bound to push gold prices even higher.” —Frank Holmes Good morning. “There’s no harm in holding cash, as long as your bank isn’t charging you to do so, which is probably coming down the road, so be prepared!” —Dennis Miller Now is a good time for investors to be scared — one reason is that there’s general agreement we’re in a recession … as economists rarely agree on anything.
