Protection PerfectGood morning.
The United States was brought into World War II after the Japanese bombed Pearl Harbor.  But that move occurred months after the US, a major oil exporter at the time, cut off supplies to Japan.  The next shooting war may also start off over a battle for resources.  In this case, the most likely resource to be fought over is semiconductor chips.
Disproportionate amount of global production occurs in Taiwan, an island that mainland China views as its own.  With the US withdrawal from Afghanistan being executed poorly, some see a conflict between Taiwan and China as the next geopolitical flare-up.  If so, a quick takeover of Taiwan by China would put it in a position to dominate tech production until more facilities are built in friendlier areas.

Now here’s the rest of the news:

Sign of the Labor Shortage: An Alabama Pizzeria Offered to “Literally Hire Anyone” –Grace Dean, Business Insider

Love Those Ad SlogansGood morning.
Following Zoom’s explosive move after its earnings report, traders jumped into the game on other companies set to announce.  Names like Chewy Inc, Peloton Interactive and a host of other companies surged ahead of their reports.  The buying frenzy in select names has really been a hallmark of this rally and so far, the bears haven’t spoiled the party on the first trading day of September.

If you don’t own gold … now is the time!

Now here’s the rest of the news:

Is Trump About To Shut Down The Federal Reserve?
If you haven’t noticed already, prices at the supermarket have steadily been rising since March of this year.  Do you know what the number one cause of rising prices is?  It’s simple.  The federal reserve pumping more money into the economy.  Because of the virus, the Fed’s balance sheet has SKYROCKETED by over $7.2 Trillion for the first time in history.  By implementing the  first stimulus bill, America’s debt jumped from $21 trillion to OVER $26 trillion.  But, President Trump strongly dislikes the Fed.  Trump has been hammering the Fed since his first day in office.  In fact, President Trump would prefer America to have a Gold Standard so that we would not be facing growing inflation, rising consumer prices, and bloated debt.

“We used to have a very, very solid country because it was based on a gold standard.
We don’t have that anymore.”
 —President Donald Trump

Some financial analysts are on record saying that President Trump not only can but will take over the fed and shut it down and put America back on the gold standard.  Trump is a big proponent for gold.  In fact, in May of 2019, the Washington Post quoted the President that: Bringing back the gold standard would be very hard to do, but, boy, would it be wonderful.  We’d have a standard on which to base our money.”  The federal reserve act of 1913 does not protect the fed; it simply gives them the charter to exist.  Those who already own gold will profit handsomely if this happens.  Many are betting that it will.  Just visit any financial news website, and you will see story after story of government, nations, and wealthy people buying and hoarding gold.

Our Enterprise Rental

WOW — just flippin’ wow!  Caryl and I arrived excited to be meeting our “sisters and brother-in-law” coming all the way from London, England to gather for a Maritime Adventure to remember!

Sit back and enjoy it with us.

Today we picked-up the KIA (9-seat) Sedona for our approximate 1700 mile hop, (that’s 2750 KMs).

Everyone’s a bit jet-lagged but we managed a pic or two at the Halifax Airport arrivals gate… (from left to right, Dione is holding her grandson Cameron; Olly and Alan, Caryl and Esme.)  I’m taking the picture … as Dione surprised us all by visiting from Dartmouth, NS a day earlier than expected.  Dione is, one of two, of the sisters’  cousin Joan’s daughters.  It sounds confusing, and can be a bit…  This is the first time any-of-us has met Dione, and of course Cameron, before today!

Here’s the fab-five having dinner at Tomavino’s Restaurante down by the water.  It’s a bit dark, but it was out of my hands!

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
