Debt doesn’t matter…

That’s a slogan that’s gaining popularity among economists.  It’s music to the ears of politicians on both sides of the aisle.  It gives them permission to continue their out-of-control spending…
Of course, we’re talking about the national debt.  The U.S. now owes $26 trillion and has another $153 trillion in unfunded liabilities.  It’s hard to imagine a number that big … A trillion dollars has 12 zeros.
In one sense, the economists are right.  The debt doesn’t matter – because it’s never getting paid back.  The government will continue to print more money to pay the interest for as long as it can get away with it.
The system of ever-expanding debt works great for politicians with election promises to fulfill, and for people and corporations on the receiving end of the dole.
But if you’re reading this, chances are it doesn’t work so well for you…

and It’s Market Update: August 1, 2020

The recent ascent of gold and silver prices have many talking, and for good reason.
Due to the convergence of five major factors, we’ve got you covered on what’s propelling prices higher, and why each metal still has much more room to run.  [Get the details on this week’s historic rise here…]

Forget $1,911 – Gold Soars Towards $2,000 (And Silver Climbs Even Faster)
After blowing past the prior record set in 2011, many experts predict gold will soon reach even greater heights.  Here’s why they say the run is far from over.  [Read Here]

“Dollar Debasement” Driving Gold’s Record Rise, Says Goldman Sachs
After facing downward pressure for years, the dollar has begun to crater in recent months, contributing to gold’s historic ascent.  Here’s what could be next.  [Read Here]

After Record Week, Next Stop $2,300 Gold and $30 Silver?
The recent ascent in prices have our customers talking, and for good reason.  Here’s what’s propelling them higher, and why each metal has much more room to run.  [Read Here]

Gold currently at $1,978.64 (+3.9% over last week), silver at $24.51 (+7.1% over last week)

SAY OF THE DAY

“Investors have focused on a rise in record prices for gold, but silver’s up nearly
25% in July — the metal’s second-biggest monthly gain on record — and it’s still
undervalued compared with the yellow metal.”
—Myra P. Saefong

Being liked by people is often considered more important than having authority or talent. (There are some individuals who don’t have much skill or intelligence, but they are successful because people love them and would do anything for them.)

Doctors spend more time with patients they like; they ask them to come back more often for further check-ups.  Judges or juries give lesser penalties to guilty parties whom they like.  Students learn faster if they like their teachers.  People like doing business with people they know and like.

The more friends you have, the better your chances of having more people like you.  Having many friends means that you have a support group and safety net who you can rely on – and ask help from – any time you need one.  Here are 10 ways to make people like you very much, they include:

    1. I need a bigger nest egg Give sincere compliments.
    2. Focus on them and their interests.
    3. Smile genuinely.
    4. Say these three magic words more often. (I like you!)
    5. Offer value.
    6. Share your secrets.
    7. Make him/her laugh.
    8. Find similarities.
    9. Mirror him/her.
    10. Conform to his/her primary sense or senses.

These ten techniques will not fail you in making anyone like you …  A Lot More!  (The more activities you participate in, the social events you attend, the more you mingle, the more face-to-face meetings … exposure and familiarity relaxes people.)  Volunteer your time and expertise!  People like to help other – they really do.  Most of them will appreciate and remember what you’ve done for them and return the favor.

Law of reciprocity.¹  🙂

¹ It’s considered by many to be the most powerful law of human nature.  Basically, it states that, “If you do something nice for me I’ll do something nice for you.”

Nice words for nice prospects.

Certain words and phrases make it easier for prospects to accept what we say.  Here are some examples.

  • “If you are like me …”
  • “I am not sure if this is for you.”
  • “This may not be your cup of tea, but …”
  • “How would you feel if …”
  • “I bet you are a bit like me.”

Ten Ways To Foster Innovation In order to compete effectively, we must look for new and better ways to accomplish our mission.  We must find creative methods to delight our customers.  And we must find innovative strategies for getting more done with fewer resources. With things changing as rapidly as they are, doing things the old way won’t be profitable for very long.  To grow, we must be constantly innovating. An innovative company attracts and keeps better employees.  People want to be part of something creative.  It’s stimulating and it’s fun. Here are ten things you can do to foster

Good morning. We’re fans of following company insiders when they buy their own shares.  That’s because they only buy if they see a good value going forward.  Most company insiders are partially compensated in shares, so they have plenty of reasons to sell, from portfolio diversification to big spending bills like a second house or divorce. Overall, buying with company insiders produces excess returns compared to the market.  But they’re not the only insider group out there. Consider Congress.  Last year, two senators sold off stocks after an early hearing on Covid and before the big crash.  House Speaker Nancy

Good morning. Yesterday marked the 13th anniversary of the collapse of Lehman Brothers, a “victim” of over leverage on the US housing market.  Yesterday also marked the day when Evergrande, a Chinese real estate firm, stated that it wouldn’t pay interest on its already-collapsing bonds. For years, many have warned about the size and rate of China’s real estate buildup, from empty cities to investment homes that sit unused (one of the few places where citizens can park cash).  While we’re optimistic that the damage can be contained to China and not impact global growth too much, we also can’t

Good morning. We’ve warned for weeks that stocks are at elevated levels, and that a modest pullback would be likely.  Now, however, investor sentiment has gotten heavily bearish, for more than just a small pullback. That’s somewhat concerning, as fears of a market pullback could lead to enough profit-taking and cash-raising that it becomes a self-fulfilling prophecy.  However, a market so quick to get so bearish could also be a sign that there’s still a major rally ahead.  Bull markets don’t die when investors get fearful.  Rather, it’s when investors get so bullish that they go all-in at record highs.

Good morning. With Labor Day weekend over, oil prices should be trending down.  The summer driving season in North America is over, and it’s largely an American phenomenon.  However, expectations for a potentially colder-than-average winter are keeping a bid under oil prices right now. At a time when traders typically expect lower prices going forward, oil is now at a 5-week high and trending higher.  And Bank of America analysts see crude oil pumping as much as $100 per barrel under an exceptionally cold winter scenario.  It’s likely that gas prices may remain higher for longer than expected, and can

Good morning. Last week, Treasury Secretary Janet Yellen warned that the measures underway to preserve cash at the US Treasury were likely to run out in mid-October.  Unless Congress acts to raise the debt ceiling, there could be a potentially debt cliff where a number of government programs simply don’t get paid. That’s a scenario that nearly unfolded in 2011. 10 years ago, it also provided the stock market with a flat return for the year and a closest thing to a selloff since the housing crisis two years before that.  Last week’s market weakness may be starting to reflect
