Better Than Duct TapeGood morning.
Uranium fever is back in the markets.  Periodically, the commodity used for nuclear power comes into the public’s mind.  While the commodity isn’t directly traded like oil or copper, its price is determined by contracts between power companies and uranium miners.  That makes the market somewhat inefficient, and easy to see when the market is tight.
Now is one such time, and interest in uranium trading is growing on a number of platforms dominated by meme traders.  On a supply and demand basis, they’re right, as we’ve already seen in recent months with unusual options activity in a number of uranium producers.  But with meme investors piling into the trade, it may be prudent to take some short-term profits here.

Now here’s the rest of the news:

Entire College EducationGood morning.
A recent study showed that 39 states don’t have the money they need to pay their bills.  With the economy still working to reopen fully, chances are tax revenues will lag for years.
That could add a twist to the recovery, as changes in how states attempt to collect taxes may end up leading to migration… and may prevent assets like stocks and the housing market from appreciating further from here.

Now here’s the rest of the news:

Not Enough Silver on Earth to Meet the Coming Demands
“I’m thinking triple-digit silver.  I was always thinking in the low end of that triple digit.  But now, I’m thinking it’s possible to get into the higher end of that range. ” –Keith Neumeyer

Which ice breaker formula do you like?

Ice breaker?  This is a phrase or sentence that introduces our business into a social conversation, in a socially-acceptable way.  We don’t want to look like jerks.  We don’t want to be the person that tries to force a discussion about business during someone’s wedding.

IceBreakersOur ice breaker should not be about us, but about our prospects.  That means we must focus on the benefit they will receive, or the problem we can solve for them.  Here is an example of a benefit template.

  • “I show people how to get an extra paycheck every month.”
  • “I show people how to be their own boss and work from their homes.”
  • “I show people how to lose weight by changing what they eat for breakfast.”
  • “I show families how to take their children to Disney World, instead of only showing them pictures of Disney World.”
  • “I show families how to finance private education for the children.
  • “I show people how to work out of their homes instead of commuting to work.”

If you like formulas and templates to make your business easy, you will enjoy this book.

Available in audio, ebook, and paperback.

Also available in Spanish, French, and Portuguese.

One good ice breaker might attract the person who will change your life.  😉

“When trauma comes, we can learn from it, heal from it, and move through it.” –Dr. James Gordon Listen, Pause, Clarify and Validate Our ability to communicate effectively is one of the most precious skills we can develop.  Most of the time, when we think of communicating well, we think of effectively expressing ourselves.  This is certainly important, but listening is the single most important of all communication skills.  It’s what Stephen Covey calls “Seek first to understand and then to be understood.” Listen First and foremost, we must actively listen to what someone is saying.  Perhaps we were given

Good morning. Wednesday’s inflation numbers came in at a 15 year high.  But beyond the headlines, core inflation numbers have started to show a slowdown, with a rise of 0.2 percent from August.  It’s not a reversal, but a still-hidden sign that inflation may be moderating.  The bond market picked up on the news, with yields ticking down slightly. If that’s the case, then many of the fears impacting the market right now may go away.  That could explain part of Thursday’s rally, on top of the debt ceiling delay to December.  While we’re not out of the woods yet

Good morning. Inflation may be the headline story, but it’s just one factor that could impact corporate profitability this earnings season.  Many companies are able to pass on rising costs to customers from run-of-the-mill inflation.  But higher energy prices, which have been running hotter than official inflation measures, represent a much larger bill for many companies.  We’re already starting to see warnings on that front, including form airline companies, as oil prices hit a seven-year high. But there’s one more threat out there.  Last week, 136 nations signed an agreement on a minimum corporate tax rate of at least 15

Good morning. Earnings season is kicking off in earnest this week.  Typically, companies are able to beat expectations most of the time as Wall Street analysts adjust their expectations ahead of the results.  This time around, with companies coming off one-year numbers that look good from the lockdown era, combined with rising labor and energy costs, it’s possible that earnings may have peaked for the time being. If that’s the case, it comes down to guidance and expectations as to where the market goes from here into the end of the year.  With a labor market that’s still somewhat sluggish,

Good morning. One sign of an overvalued market occurs when company CEOs step down from their role, often after many years.  It’s tough to bow out at the top, and those who can will try to do so, rather than stay too long and get forced out after a bad decision or market events destroy shareholder value.  We saw a large rush of company executives leave in early 2020, just into the pandemic selloff. Now, that trend has slowed down.  But it’s not over yet.  Henry Kravis and George Roberts, founders of private equity giant KKR, are stepping down as

Good morning. The term “unicorn” was created to describe startup companies that had a valuation of over $1 billion based on their latest round of funding.  The notion was that such a company should be rare, as at that size it would make sense to take a company public. Yet today there are hundreds of unicorns.  The rare species has become a herd.  And none is bigger than SpaceX, the space exploration company run by Elon Musk.  A recent funding round has led the company to become the first centi-billionaire firm, with a valuation of over $100 billion. By the
