August 15, 2020

Today is declaration day!
Not that I’m Catholic, or particularly religious…
I HATE MORNINGS.  (okay, I’ve said it!)
I am totally an evening person.
So, what is the first thing I do every morning to cheer me up?  I go learn something.¹
I enjoy learning, and within a few minutes, the start of my day is positive.
What I do next is share that new-found-learn with my friends and colleagues, like you!

“I Start, Grow, Systemize, And Then Delegate My Way To Success…”
(Say this 3 times today)

Massive mistake alert!  I probably “lost” a million or so dollars and years of work because of the mistake Jesse Eker points out/share in this video.  Looking back over the last 8-18 years, there have been some massive and very costly mistakes I wish I too could take back.

Richard Branson has been quoted to say, “Business opportunities are like buses, there’s always another one coming.”  I would like to add, “You can only be on one bus at a time; yes, you can use your ‘transfer’ to get on the next bus; but your money is spent and time is short…

Like a thief had siphoned gas from your tank…

    • You’ve been ROBBED of youthful energy…
    • DRAINED of your vitality and happiness…
    • And left dealing with CHRONIC pain and fatigue that makes it hard to just get through the day…

Struggle with the afternoon doldrums and needing a nap after lunch?
Reaching for another cup of joe to keep you buzzed and awake?
This helps me … and should help you too.  Good Morning, Sunshine Diffuser Blend¹

#1. Fill your diffuser with tap water up to the “fill line” or fill marker.
#2. Add the appropriate amounts of drops to the diffuser.

      • 3 drops orange essential oil
      • 1 drop ylang ylang essential oil
      • 1 drop bergamot essential oil

#3. Enjoy!

These are changing times; COVID-19 cannot be blamed completely for that.  It has however disrupted certain patterns: such as, our time to learn, grow and share…

Keith Kohl is a writer for Energy & Capital: A Practical Investment Newsletter which analyzes the New Energy Economy.  He recalls stepping off the plane in Calgary nearly a decade ago on his first junket to the Alberta oil sands.  My wife and I currently live in Calgary, and have also made the trek to the Fort McMurray Oil Sands, so were curious as-to-what brought him 2300 miles from Baltimore to travel an additional 500 more mile north.

You may recall that a decade ago, the U.S. was importing about 2.5 million barrels of oil from Canada every day.  The oil recovery process is a vast undertaking with trucks that are the size of small houses and a massive mining surface clearly visible from space.  Yes!  Very impressive.

What stood out most in our writer’s mind were the little placards situated next to every major object in the room and throughout the hotel itself.  One thing about them stood out like a sore thumb: all of the signs were written in Chinese; summing up the future of the oil sands perfectly.

Oil Sands Mining

China’s Secret Oil War

If nothing else, you have to credit China for always looking long term.  That’s precisely how they’re securing future oil supplies.  For years, China has been shoring up its energy security by pouring investments into foreign countries.  Unlike Venezuela’s oil industry, which has been incredibly unstable, Canada offers China something it’s been craving all along: energy security.

All we need now is a pipeline to the coast… [Cenovus Energy (NYSE: CVE) is the largest and one of the most efficient SAGD producers in Alberta right now and has rewarded shareholder with a 42% move since December ’18.]

That’s the first place I’d start.  😉

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
