LawGood morning.
It’s easy to bash the Federal Reserve.  They have a dual mandate, to keep unemployment down and prices stable.  That’s usually a trade-off in the best of times.  With the unique challenges of a pandemic, it’s no surprise that it’s an even bigger challenge than usual.
When testifying before Congress on Thursday, Fed Chairman Jerome Powell stated that he’s “not concerned” with the rising costs of living.  In a world where inflation in transitory, that’s no surprise.  In the real world, where people have to put food on the table, though, such statements come off as elitist and out of touch with the needs of average, everyday Americans.  Given the central bank’s “say anything to keep markets going” attitude, traders should continue to expect some volatility this earnings season.

Now here’s the rest of the news:

Good morning.
It’s been four days of the big names of Tech failing to lead the way.  The Nasdaq must be feeling unloved.
With vaccine news dominating the headlines on Wednesday and last Friday’s Gilead news, it’s provided the one-two punch that has lifted value names led by the Industrials and Material sectors.  We’ve seen this same story play out, but does the addition of banks provide staying power to lift stocks through the rest of summer without the Big 5?  Only time will tell.

Now here’s the rest of the news:

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
