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.  😉

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
