E_mail updatesGood morning.
Frequently you reach a phase where good news is bad news and bad news is good news.  That is largely been the case for the past many months.
However, we are reaching a phase where some good news is required.  That “good news” is either the jobs vastly outpacing the ADP report on Wednesday or a promise for significantly more spending in a stimulus bill.

Now here’s the rest of the news:

Microsoft is on the clock…
We would say we can imagine the scene inside Microsoft’s (MSFT) headquarters today, but no workers will be in their offices until at least January 2021, so that’s not exiting.  Instead, we’ll have to venture a guess on what the executive-level Teams chats and video conferences at the software giant look like…  And we’re willing to bet the words “TikTok” have been written, said, or included in research documents a time or two.  You’ve probably seen some of the headlines by now …  and with US-China tensions serving as a backdrop, Microsoft is in talks to buy a large part of TikTok, the privately-owned Chinese social media platform.  Microsoft scooping up the immensely popular social media platform would make news on any day … but the current circumstances have dialed up the drama …  and over the last few months, the viral video app has become synonymous as a COVID-19 “winner,” much like Zoom Video Communications (ZM).  TikTok now reports more than 800 million users.  Its popularity has spread largely among locked-down teenagers who are logging more time than ever on their smart-phones and less time talking to other people.  As a result, awareness of the TikTok platform – and where it comes from – has reached upper levels of the U.S. government.

ADT Joins the Nest 
Home security company ADT (NYSE: ADT) announced Monday that it sold 6.6% of its equity to Alphabet‘s (NSDQ: GOOGL) Google division for $450 million.  That morning, shares of ADT doubled in value before pulling pack to finish the day up nearly 60%.  In a moment, I’ll show you another company that could be next to make a deal.  But first, let’s take a quick look at why ADT felt compelled to lock up a partnership with Google.  For the past couple of years, fantastic claims have been made about how the Internet of Things (IoT) will change our lives for the better.  Until now, there hasn’t been much meat to go along with all that sizzle.  For all its promise, the IoT has been slow to deliver stock market winners on Wall Street.

The Coolest Tech Trend You Never Heard Of
“Invest in crypto ‘pick-and-shovel’ plays, not the highly risky currencies themselves.” —John Persinos
The best play of this sort is blockchain technology.  With the soaring NASDAQ composite as a back-drop … John sees opportunities in blockchain applications.  Quarantined consumers are relying on Big Tech more than ever, for teleconferencing, mobile apps, cloud-based data storage and retrieval, cash-less payment systems, virtual reality, streaming entertainment and news, and online shopping.
But the advent of blockchains is largely ignored by the mainstream media, which is all the better for investors who like to get in front of game-changing developments.

  • This trend spells opportunity for makers of ultra-sophisticated chips, especially graphical processing units (GPUs), that are used by blockchains.  These GPU chips allow a computer to present graphics.
  • Blockchains have other uses.  They let businesses store encrypted data in a ledger.  Blockchains are used in finance, supply chains, and data storage.  This gives the makers of GPUs for video games additional prospects in commerce.
  • Cryptocurrency users leverage GPUs to speed up the network.  Major chipmakers have recently released several GPUs dedicated to cryptocurrency mining.

Are you seeing, feeling, and hearing everything?
Are you really aware of your surroundings?

I will begin with a quick story

Once, I heard my niece say that her mother, didn’t love her.  I found this odd, since I often hear my sister, her mother saying “I love you” to her, and she often takes her daughter out to go sightseeing or watch a movie.
When I asked her why she would say something like that, my niece sobbed, “Mom’s not hugging me, and she’s not even kissing me before I go to sleep.  I can’t feel her love at all.”  So that’s why!
My niece is a kinesthetic person but her mom was showing her love through the auditory and visual faculties.  I quickly explained the process to her mom and she started to embrace, hug, and kiss my niece often.  The relationship blossomed from then on!

***  **   ***  **   ***

Barry is a friend from where I last worked.  We got along okay, but never really socialized.  Whenever the Company provide a “free meal, most employees who had the day off would come in for the luncheon, then leave.”  Since Social Club activities were never free, we never seemed to include ourselves.  It wasn’t until I retired from Co-Op … and Barry stayed behind … that we have grown more social.

Now we meet for breakfast, on his day’s off; sit & have coffee together at Tim Hortons; or as most recently, ride our bikes along the path down-by-the river.

Thanks ‘bear’ that was great!  😉

Seriously — forget everything else.  Focus 100% on getting traffic and making those first commissions.  Focus on only ONE type of traffic and become an expert at it.  It doesn’t matter if you choose solo ads, Facebook pay-per-click, Google AdWords, Rocket Recruiting, or some other advertising method; they all work.  I even have affiliates who stick strictly to newspaper ads (yes, you can generate a lot of traffic by advertising offline!)

Don’t waste time and dilute your efforts by trying too many traffic methods.  Pick one, and get good at it.  The more targeted prospects you can get to check your affiliate link, the more money you’ll make.

Later, if you want to develop your own list [your own collection of leads you can market to again and again], you can send people to a lead-capture page where they’re asked to put in their email address by filling out a form [more on this later].

The High-Ticket Affiliate Market model pays out much larger commissions to affiliates [like you], and allows you to create a [much larger] full-time income working part-time from home!

You’re better off learning to walk before upping your game by running.  I have not completely upped my game yet, and you made decide never to do it either.

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

Good morning. The rise of retail traders over the past year has likely saved a number of companies from bankruptcy, or helped bankrupt companies bounce back and exit bankruptcy faster.  That’s created a lot of interest in finding short squeeze stocks for big, fast profits.  It’s also driven traders into options to play the trend as well. One area can also be at play for big bucks: Corporate bond markets. Case in point, 2026 bonds for AMC Entertainment (AMC) traded as low as 5 cents on the dollar last year, but have no rallied back to par.  Buyers would have

Good morning. Investors sometime take a very binary approach to stocks.  They’re either all-in on a position, or they’re in cash or a different trade.  Rather than buy all at once, however, astute traders know when to average in.  As long as a company’s prospects don’t fundamentally change, this move allows investors to still have the option of cash, with the ability to buy more shares of a company when the market declines. So while Goldman Sachs (GS) recently warned clients not to buy Monday’s drop, retail investors saw a dip to buy instead.  With stocks hitting resistance at their

Good 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
