Good morning.
Rising Delta-variant cases, inflation fears, supply chain issues – the market is dealing with a lot right now.  That’s caused the market to feel like it’s sagging and about to drop, even when stocks are still just under all-time highs.
Looking at the big tech space, which is largely rallying once again, and which makes up the biggest part of the market, it’s clear that the recent fears are just part of the “wall of worry” that the stock market sees during a bull market.  That view is also supported by Goldman Sachs (GS), which recently increased its price target for the S&P 500 this year.  While it may seem like the market can’t possibly go any higher, if any of the known fears today go away, any subsequent rally will seem obvious in hindsight.

Now here’s the rest of the news:

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. In spite of 7 percent inflation rates right now, consumers are continuing to spend.  While their overall confidence has dropped, the actual spending itself shows that the economy, largely dominated by such spending, is likely to continue moving higher this year. If inflation rates start to decline in the coming months, the market could be setting up for a solid return as the current fears abate.  Given the latest data showing that consumers continue to be interested in buying homes, automobiles, and appliances this year, even a small change higher in interest rates will unlikely derail the economy’s

Good morning. On Friday, the stock market broke its 200-day moving average lower for the first time since July 2020.  Stocks are looking at oversold levels going into the weekend, with many names down much further than the overall stock market index.  But yesterday’s wild trading saw a massive drop reverse into a gain at the close. This reversal could be a sign of capitulation by sellers, and that the worst of the current decline is over.  With leveraged traders already wiped out, and plenty of cash from retail and institutional investors on the sidelines, the market could see a

Good morning. Markets had $3.3 trillion reasons to be volatile last week.  That was based on the notational value of options expiring on Friday.  That included $1.3 trillion for individual stock positions alone, the second-highest on record.  Traders repositioning those trades ahead of expiration last week may have contributed to the big selloff, which finally started reversing on Friday as Treasury yields started coming back down. Given the growth of options trading, this phenomenon of added volatility into options expiration weeks may continue for the foreseeable future.  While February’s contracts are far lower in value, the next big hump will

Today! January 23, 2021 “Creativity is an action, not a feeling.  Your work is too important to be left to how you feel today.”  –Seth Godin Power Thought That Raises Awareness Whenever we’re talking about personal transformation — whether it’s physical (lose weight), financial (get out of debt), mental (overcome anxiety), spiritual, relational (repair a broken relationship), etc. — what we’re really talking about is change.  And for most, that can be scary.  In fact, many people don’t even entertain the idea of change until the pain of not changing becomes unbearable. In other words, you have to be ready and willing

Today! January 22, 2021 Good morning. The trade war.  The pandemic.  The election.  All the big catalysts that can move markets up or down are now off the table.  So what’s next?  Until a new catalyst emerges, expect markets to drift. With markets in a long-term uptrend, the drift will likely be higher.  Individual names can still have some big news on corporate announcements and earnings reports.  And look for potential catalysts that could provide the market’s next big move, whether higher (stimulus) or lower (war, pandemic, today’s high valuations). Now here’s the rest of the news: A “Cash Panic”

01-JANUARY 21-2022

Good morning. Fears of rising inflation are likely to peak this year.  That’s good news.  And with news that major spending bills would be broken up, the likelihood of further fiscal stimulus to drive inflation higher is also likely to help there. In other areas, however, the economy is showing signs of a slowdown.  Jobless claims have risen to a three-month high.  Home sales have slowed after a massive boom in the past 18 months.  And now, expectations are that the trans-Pacific cargo trade are now rising to a three month wait time on average.  With a longer wait time

Good morning. While the stock market has largely been focused on rising interest rates in the past few weeks, the start to earnings season this week has been subdued.  Many of the big banks have started to report numbers.  And banks should be faring well even with higher rates of inflation going on right now. However, bank earnings have overall been lacklustre, as many banks have reported trading losses that have offset the gains made from a big year for mergers and IPOs. If bank earnings aren’t enough to get the markets excited and moving higher, chances are we’re in
