New Class Bookmark!Good morning.
With less than 10% of S&P 500 companies left to report, it doesn’t mean that this isn’t an important finish to a big earnings season.  While there was a lot of uncertainty coming in, the results found more companies beating on EPS and revenues than normal.
However, with such a low bar, it did make it easier to hurdle.  While the earnings were surprising, the reaction was under-whelming as the movement exhibited on an earnings beat was less than average.  With some big retail names like Walmart, Home Depot, Target and others announcing this week, it is a big deal.

Here’s the rest of the story: Declare For This Week!

“I am a problem solver.  I help people, and the more people I help, the more money I make!”
(Say this 3 times today, and for 5 days)

Want to be able to sell more of your product or service?  Jesse Eker gives a really great explanation of WHAT people actually want when they choose to say YES to you.  Knowing this gives you the power to change your sales process to get more people buying your stuff.  And it’s not about sales physiology or any manipulation, either.  It’s a word that starts with a T and ends with a N.
Take a guess, and then go watch this video!

Yes, ‘we’ do want to sell more of what we offer!  TRANSFORMATION vs information!

A generation ago, workers tended to stay at the same company for years, if not decades.  Today, it’s expected for anyone building a career to move between jobs every few years.  That allows for the fastest way to get higher pay and a better job title along the way.  Now, anyone who has been at a job for two years won’t be passed up by a potential new employer.

Don’t wait too long!  🙂

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
