                                                                                            Good morning.
PaddleAfter three straight weeks of gains for the major market indices, why does it feel like it hasn’t gone anywhere?
That’s because we still haven’t seen the price take out the June 8 high.  One of the bigger takeaways from last week is the fact the Nasdaq stalled out & the Dow outperformed on the week.  On Friday, it was utilities that shined and may be an indication that the bull is getting tired.

Now here’s the rest of the news:

Immersion: A Next Wave Stock Market Winner by Jim Pearce
As a result of the coronavirus pandemic, life as we know it is about to get a lot more virtual.  Long after COVID-19 is just a bad memory, many of the adaptations it forced upon society will still be with us.
Like all cataclysmic economic events, this one will have a very long tail and will have an enormous impact on the stock market.  If you act now, you can still get in on some of the most promising investment opportunities for the next decade at bargain-basement prices.
Consider the performance of Zoom Video Communications (NSDQ: ZM), which started the year below $70 a share.  On July 13, Zoom traded up to $281 for a gain of more than 300% in less than eight months.  Zoom Communications (ZM)
Prior to the coronavirus outbreak, Zoom struggled to gain market share.  After going public at $62 per share in April of last year, Zoom ended the year near $67.  Nothing about its performance suggested it was about to take off.
Now, Zoom is considered a “no-brainer” stock to own for this year and beyond.  So too are other COVID-19 beneficiaries including Netflix (NSDQ: NFLX) and Grubhub (NYSE: GRUB).
I wrote about these three stocks in early March, just as the coronavirus pandemic was gaining steam.  I said then, “As is always the case, this crisis creates an opportunity for innovative entrepreneurs.  Yes, there will be many losers as a result of the coronavirus but there will be some winners, too.”
In addition to those three companies, another immediate winner is online e-tailing giant Amazon.com (NSDQ: AMZN).  Amazon gained 49% over the first half of the year and added another 9% during the first two weeks of July.  The Next Wave…

“Nothing can resist a human will that will stake even its existence on the extent of its purpose.”
–Benjamin Disraeli

Your plan, as my wife refers to it … our path; your vehicle to get there may change over time, (sometimes it’s low on fuel, needs service, or simply awaiting a part), BUT the vision – the mission – will not change.

My passion is helping people discover, develop and fulfill their dreams.  In the process, I fulfill my own.

Sounds very simple … it is very easy to remember … AND truly IS my passion.  [Saving endangered creatures, removing plastic from the ocean, reverse global warming, and ending conflict & greed … I’m sidelined.]  I’m in support.  I’m watching … “They are just not my P A S S I O N.”

Empowerment … YES!

Encouragement … YES!

Endearment … NO!  (not my battle … not my passion … not my fight!)

And solve them we will … 🙂

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.’
