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!”

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. Retail sales came in with a blowout number, sending stocks to all-time highs and reversing a pre-market drop.  The reason is thanks to the last round of stimulus payments.  While earlier rounds made their way into the stock market, Bitcoin, or paying down a credit card, it’s clear from the retail numbers that many are spending. Governments and central banks are also likely noticing the impact as well.  If inflation numbers don’t materially rise and stay higher, the lesson may be learned that money can be created seemingly infinitely, as long as it’s designed to be spent.  Like

Good morning. Typically, April 15th is the day taxes from the prior year are due. 2021, like 2020, has seen a delay in payment.  Add in extensions, and you can float your payment to Uncle Sam for a year well into the autumn of the next. Tax talk hasn’t been too big in the past year.  For those on the upward part of the K-shaped recovery, it’s been withheld from their jobs as it’s been made.  For those on the lower end, there’s been less made to tax, or even the lower tax rates on unemployment benefits.  At some point,

Good morning. Coinbase is expected to make its initial public offering today.  Analysts have provided expectations for the company to trade as high as $600 per share, and potentially with a valuation of $148 billion.  That would make for one of the largest companies to go public in history. With cryptocurrency prices rushing to new all-time highs ahead of the IPO, and with estimates getting increasingly bullish for the space, this big IPO could be a sign of a top.  While the chart patterns suggest such a top is a long way off, traders should watch to see how shares

Good morning. The stock market is forward-looking.  And it’s been looking forward to this earnings season.  It’s a chance for companies to report solid numbers for the first quarter of 2021.  Earnings are expected to not only be good compared to the 4th quarter, but will also provide a strong view relative to the first quarter of 2020, when stocks had to first start pricing in the pandemic. But the real question is, what happens after earnings?  With some solid numbers likely, and with many companies still avoiding any future guidance, the next few weeks may lead to a big

Good morning. The Bureau of Labor Statistics was down early on Friday, as traders looked to see the latest inflation numbers.  With a consumer price index level up 1.0 percent month over month, or twice what was expected, inflation numbers are certainly looking up. Over time, high inflation makes it difficult for companies to provide accurate estimates of costs.  Projects are delayed, and the economy and the stock market contract.  While some of that fear has been bubbling up, for the time being, a quarter or two of extra inflation may not cause a big market selloff.  Traders can potentially

How to set boundaries … and say NO You know, when we were younger, we were wisely taught by our parents, teachers, and law enforcement officials to say NO.  Somewhere along the lines, however, we lost our way.  We started feeling bad about saying no, and we began saying yes…to everything.  The result?  We stretch ourselves thin by taking on anything and everything that comes our way – often reluctantly, begrudgingly, and resentfully.  This happens in our personal and professional lives, and it not only creates overwhelming (yet unnecessary) stress, it also puts tremendous strain on our relationships. In our
