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.  😉

Shine Your Light on Others Real leadership, the kind of leadership that not only works but also has a lasting impact, is about building other people and shining your light on them, not on yourself.  Real leaders understand they are here to work for the team, and not the other way around. A mediocre leader tries to impress people with how important he or she is.  A great leader impresses upon people how important they are. People will be willing to do more and accomplish more when they feel recognized.  A little recognition goes a long way, but you have to

Good morning. Earnings season offers a big opportunity for markets to move in either direction.  With the market currently contending with the issues that come from rising interest rates, and the latest Covid variant (which Bill Gates say may be the last before Covid becomes more seasonal like the flu), this quarterly earnings report could be a make-or-break. While the data from the last quarter of 2021 are already in the rear-view mirror, early indications are that overall earnings for the S&P 500 are up 49 percent.  That’s hugely bullish, and some industries are likely to move higher no matter

Good morning. Wednesday’s inflation reading of a 7 percent annual increase is the biggest move higher for inflation since 1982.  However, behind all headlines are some good and bad news.  Good news?  The rate of inflation growth is slowing, and that may be confirmed over the next few months. And, within the data that goes into inflation, some components are still continuing to rise, such as energy and gasoline prices.  But other factors, like meat prices, are starting to decline. This more nuanced picture shows that many inflation components are also tied in with shortages, and that the rate of

Good morning. The stock market continues to struggle to find its footing this year, as attempts to move higher seem to be thwarted by a number of news items such as rising Covid cases.  However, combined with a low death rate (something the news rarely talks about anymore), the latest variant may allow the pandemic to become endemic to those who haven’t yet moved on. In the meantime, a number of investors are getting bullish following the latest selloff.  Of particular note is the renewed interest in Bitcoin, where billionaire Bill Miller states that half his personal portfolio is now

Good morning. At its lows yesterday, the Nasdaq hit correction territory, down 10 percent from its most recent high.  That comes as interest rates continue to creep higher.  With a week loaded with economic data, that’s no surprise. By the end of the week we should see the latest inflation data with a CPI release on Wednesday, as well as the PPI for producer data.  Retail sales will give a hint as to how the holidays performed compared to prior years, and a number of Federal Reserve members have speaking engagements which can move the markets this week. With the

Good morning. Going into Friday’s job reports, a full 86 percent of market participants queried believed that the Federal Reserve would hike interest rates in March.  Such a move, coming off of last week’s hawkish meeting minutes, would mean going from 0 percent interest rates to 0.25 percent. While not a huge move, it would be a sign that the economy is performing well and that the job market is getting close to normal.  While the latest jobs numbers had a big miss on Friday, enough jobs were created to drop the unemployment rate down to 3.9 percent.  Sure, the

More Newfoundland wonder! January 09, 2021 Getting A Job Is a Job A recruiter asked a job candidate, “Why did you leave your last job?” The job applicant replied, “It was something my boss said.” “What did he say?” “You’re fired.” This person definitely needs a copy of my new book – “Getting a Job is a Job” – which comes out Jan. 5.  In it, I focus on bouncing back after being fired, dealing with rejection and the emotions people feel.  And I explain why you can’t take it personally. The book is chock full of helpful hints on
