Vacation_1Good morning.
The old joke on Wall Street is that “sell” is a four-letter word.  No investment bank wants to sound that harsh, especially as the firm in mind might be a current or potential customer.  But now investors are looking at a new dirty word when considering their investments.
This time, the word is inflation.  And it’s not a dirty word yet.  Mentions of inflation have jumped 1,100 percent on a year-over-year basis on S&P 500 earnings calls so far this year.  And Clorox (CLX), a darling during the height of the pandemic last year, was just crushed on its earnings report thanks to higher input and logistics costs.  We’ll know in a few months if the worst is over.  Just look for inflation rates to flatten out from here, or even decline.

Now here’s the rest of the news:

Getting Beyond Group ThinkGood morning.
Over the weekend, news of the remarkable accomplishment of the SpaceX Dragon astronauts making the first water landing since 1975 was juxtaposed with the potential acquisition of the social app TikTok by Microsoft.  As stimulus talk and M&A activity begin to heat up, the indication is the potential for overheating on the combination of extremes.  The hope is that any potential selling can be met with a safe water landing for buyers before the next big step for the market.

Now here’s the rest of the news:

New Millionaires Will Be Minted… Likely Even Billionaires… 
bitcoinsEric Wade made a compelling case for  bitcoin’s place in the global economy, and he also said that “investors who realize this are going to become fabulously wealthy in the process.”  We will soon see another bull run in bitcoin and cryptos of a magnitude that will put even the dot-com bubble to shame.  In fact, thanks to a single metric – scarcity – Eric believes that within eight years, bitcoin could be worth 100 time as much as it is today.  And the major catalyst ushering in this new age was the bitcoin “halving” event earlier this year…  Halving refers to the payouts or rewards that bitcoin “miners” receive for securing the network.

Our family outing to Reader Rock Garden, Calgary, AB.  [Shameful as it is, I’ve lived in Calgary for over 35 years; and not once walked through these magnificent gardens.]

This historic three-acre garden was created in 1913 by Calgary’s third Parks superintendent, William Roland Reader¹, and has been recognized around the world.  Through Reader Rock Gardenmuch trial and error William located various species of vegetation that, not only survived, but would thrive the dry summers and cold winters, in Alberta.

What a wonderful day in the neighbourhood.  Norm and my mom picked Caryl and me up-in-front of our home for a semi-guided tour of the outdoor botanical gardens.  Not to bore you with the particulars, but when Calgary was established just over 150 years ago … this was bare-ass prairie.  There was little or no diversity of leafy trees, dense bushes, or flowering plants to speak of.  Here are just a few pictures taken in this outdoor garden Sunday.

There you have it, a wonderful relaxing morning!

Now… let’s come back to your role getting people to someone else’s website.  How do you do this?  First, you acquire an affiliate link from your new affiliate partner, one that’s unique to you.  Then you place ads on other online venues:

(with money you don’t have)  Facebook, search engines, forums, chat boards, other websites, etc.  You may not know this, but a huge percentage of the ads you click on online aren’t actually placed by the business owners selling the products.  They’re placed by affiliates, people who place ads and get clicks [traffic] in order to earn commissions.  MSI’s.  Multiple sources of income!

So, just how much traffic do you need to send to a website in order to make your first commission?

That depends mostly on two things: the people who make up your traffic, and how good the website is at making an irresistible offer that gets people to buy.

Here I’ll teach you the basics and how to get started.  Later on, I’ll invite you to join my affiliate program [and Network Marketing company.  We call these ‘turnkey’ programs, because all you have to do is put in a key [your affiliate link] and turn it [ drive traffic] to start making money.  Lust about everything else is done for you.

The first thing you should do when you start any new business, is focus on bringing in cash.

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
