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.

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
