MedicalGood morning.
The stock market was in freefall Monday, much like a mini-version of its March 2020 decline.  Is this the next big sell-off?  Probably not.  Monday’s fears, based on rising mask mandate re-impositions and a few select lockdown threats around the world, are likely being overblown.
In the meantime, the bigger market concern is whether or not the current economic growth is sustainable.  The facts are that it will likely slow.  Not the best news, but not the worst news either.  And inflation expectations continue to rise.  But with a lumber market shouting “timber” as it comes back down to earn while inflation hedges like gold and Bitcoin well off their highs, these fears are also likely nothing more than a sign of increased market volatility.  That’s an environment great for more active trading.

Now here’s the rest of the news:

Today, Private Pensions and Savers Face the Same Challenge
In a near-zero interest rate world, pension funds and savers have a dilemma: add risk in the hopes of gains?  Or lose the race with inflation?  Here’s one possible way out of the trap… [Read Here]

PaddleGood morning.
After 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. Yesterday saw the latest Fed meeting.  As expected, the Fed had some nice things to say about how the economy was doing, and why all those rising prices and shrinking portion sizes at the grocery store were temporary.  But when it came to, say, pulling back on the billions of dollars per day of bond buying, the central bank once again punted on the issue, saying they were looking into it. This is a replay of its model from the last crisis.  Yes, the Fed will eventually scale back its bond buying, possibly even to zero.  And it

Good morning. Last week saw the stock market dive on rising Delta variants to Covid 19.  Yesterday saw a big drop, particularly for tech.  The reason?  A crackdown by China over a number of companies there. These drops are usually healthy, as they help curb speculation and keep traders on their toes, either by quickly turning profits into losses, or by creating new trading opportunities at a better value.  This summer’s market is starting to look like the summers in the mid-1990s when tech stocks would correct going into the autumn, only to end the year higher.  In the meantime,

Good morning. Trading is fun and exciting, and being able to leverage small short-term moves into big profits makes for a fun and profitable hobby, even with the occasional big loss to talk about.  But some of the best returns can come from taking a long-term position in a multi-year trend. In a special edition of Trading Tips today, we’ll be looking more in-depth at what’s set to be the biggest trend of the decade.  It’s potentially a $30 trillion market, far bigger than 5G, the Internet of Things, all the meme stocks combined, and even cryptocurrencies.  It’s changing the

Good morning. As much as Wall Street loves rumors, Washington DC is the major league.  The latest rumors are that Federal Reserve Chairman Jerome Powell might not be nominated for a second term to lead the Fed.  While his tenure has been little different than his prior two predecessors given the crises he’s had to deal with, some progressives don’t think the Fed chair has done enough on income inequality and other matters. That could lead the White House to find a more radical leader for the central bank, potentially even one willing to embrace the latest economic theories such

Letting Go Of Guilt “Guilt can stop us from taking healthy care of ourselves.” –Melody Beattie Guilt is like a rock.  It sits in the pit of our stomachs and can weigh down our every thought, behavior, and action.  It can distract us all throughout the day and keep us awake at night.  Our muscles work overtime just to carry it around, and yet we still hold onto it. It’s imperative that we stop feeling so guilty. That’s not to say that you shouldn’t feel guilt.  True guilt is a loving instrument from Spiritual Guidance used to convict, correct, and confirm your

Good morning. Technology companies need to constantly innovate.  That results in a high amount of money being spent on research and development, which in turn helps keep a company’s taxes lower than a company that makes the same product year-in, year-out. So it’s no surprise that regulators are always on the lookout for ways to try and get more taxes out of these massive firms that often have little to no earnings.  One proposal is being floated for a new generation of technology: a space tax.  Or, more specifically, a per-passenger tax on space flights like the ones just completed
