Tuesday Tough2Good morning.
Over the past few trading sessions, it’s been clear that the bulls are looking to make a run at value stocks after the trade stalling out in early June.  Makes sense as the mega-cap tech stocks are reaching nosebleed territory.  That means that industrial, financial and cyclicals may start to catch a bid in the coming weeks.  Whether the bulls can continue to run free is unclear, but what is clear is where they’re looking to go.

Here’s the rest of the story:

Silver’s Rally Is Far From Over –Chris Igou,True Wealth
Silver hit its cheapest price in 40 years relative to gold a few months back.  The metal was lagging behind gold in a big way.  And as I explained to DailyWealth readers in May, this meant one thing…  Silver would come back with a vengeance.  That’s exactly what happened.  Silver is up 58% since I shared that opportunity.  Meanwhile, gold is only up 18%.

We Got Fired! … And It’s the Best Thing That Ever Happened to Us

Many people have lost their jobs during this pandemic though no fault of their own.
We Got Fired! - coverIn Harvey Mackay’s book, “We Got Fired! … And It’s the Best Thing That Ever Happened to Us,” Harvey interviewed 29 people who landed on their feet and excelled after they were furloughed or given a pink slip.  These were high profile people, often fired in a very public arena.  To sum up each of their inspirational stories, I asked everyone what advice they would give to people looking for a job today.
Pat Mitchell was the first woman president and CEO of PBS at the time.  She had been working as a researcher/writer for Look Magazine when it went out of business.  Her advice was:  “Be determined … I was deter-mined not to give up.  I figured it would all come around if I could find a way to survive financially while I stayed focused on what I wanted.  It didn’t come easily.  If you look at my resume, it seems like one exciting jump from one run to the next.  Every one of those moves was somewhat of a risk.  Some didn’t work out as I planned or hoped.  I didn’t follow a straight line to get where I am, but I never went backward either.”  She added:  “Seize every chance you have to learn.  It’s amazing how many skills we seem to acquire by accident.”
[Pat’s story, like many others are within the pages of this great inspiring book! … a must read.]

The concept of the smart factory has been around for quite some time.  But technology and connectivity limitations have held back development.  Until now.

5G Paves the Way

Thrown to the LionsJonathan Wilkins, director of global machine supply firm EU Automation says, “The technology could bring about a fundamental change…”  I just hope it gets us out of the mess we’ve created.  [I think technology will get us out of problems such as ‘Global Warming’, the ‘Opioid Crisis’, and this ‘Age of Plastic’ bombarding our shores and choking our landfills.]  Has it not already improved efficiency, reduced wasteful maintenance, and generally lowered manufacturing costs?

The Consumer Technology Association says 5G will allow you to download a two-hour movie in just 3.6 seconds, versus six minutes on current networks.  But 5G is much bigger than just movie down-loads.  It is expected to propel innovation across multiple fields, including transportation, healthcare, defence, consumer electronics and appliances, agriculture, shipping and warehousing, education… the list goes on.  Just imagine what knowledge could-be-share and wisdom acknowledged?

Capitalism is best described by the term creative destruction, first described by economist Joseph Schumpeter.  The term indicates that new technologies can replace old ones – possibly ones that seem entrenched and incapable of innovation.  Of course, not all new technologies work out.

The Hyperloop, an attempt at faster, safer transportation, just set a record 288 mph in a recent test.  Some parts were lost along the way – a generous term for an explosion that occurred.  This form of creative destruction is certainly both creative and destructive.

We’ll let someone else do the first human tests… 😉

Making money online or offline is really simple.  Making money with a home business is also simple.  If that were true, why do so many of these secondary businesses at home fail to make money?

It’s because the majority of those who try, can’t focus on one thing for long enough to see it work before they’ve moved on to the next.  I’m going to meet with (these five people) and show (each one of them) how they can save money on their taxes.  Before they know it they’re checking email, posting pictures on Facebook, chatting on the phone, and wasting time watching YouTube.  Not because they are bad people!  But because there was no clear amount of time allocated to the task.  What was the task?

Meeting and showing these specific people “the tax advantages they are missing.” But instead — they’ve been very busy for those three hours, but haven’t been even slightly productive.  What you’ll find most difficult is knowing which tasks actually bring in the money.  That where we come in…

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
