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

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.  😉

We can almost taste the sea air… August 14, 2021 10 Benefits of Helping Others “Be helpful.  If you see a person without a smile, give him one of yours.” –Zig Ziglar Volunteering your time, money, or energy to help others doesn’t just make the world better – it also makes you better.  Studies indicate that the very act of giving back to the community boosts your happiness, health, and sense of well-being. Here are 10 benefits of lending a helping hand.  1. Helping others feels good.  There is some evidence to suggest that when you help others, it can

Today! August 13, 2021 Good morning. The latest jobs numbers are looking good, with fewer new claims being filed and unemployment dropping.  But there’s a critical mismatch: There are still over 10 million job openings and as many as 12 million still receiving some kind of unemployment benefit. The Fed has committed to keeping the monetary spigot open while the labor market is under full employment, but some will always be between work or unable to work.  This mismatch may start to resolve itself later in the year, as extended federal unemployment benefits end in states that didn’t end the

Good morning. Oil prices have been driven by an imbalance between supply and demand for the past few years.  While OPEC has looked to gradually raise output, the cartel is now expecting markets to move into surplus this year.  That’s in contrast to other estimates right now. OPEC’s research may be the first step towards moving to cut its total output, potentially later in the year by likely some time in 2023.  That could help put a floor under oil, which has ranged as low as $90 recently after getting as high as $120 earlier in the year. While oil

Good morning. It finally happened.  After months of rising higher and higher on an annualized basis, inflation has finally cracked.  While the market liked the read of “only” an 8.5 percent year-over-year increase, it’s still incredibly high by any standard. And inflation is cumulative.  So the longer it’s higher than average, the more destructive it will be for investors over time.  While it’s a sign of good news, getting inflation down faster still means the economy will need to see a bigger slowdown from where it’s at now. So while markets jumped on the news, it’s possible that as the

Good morning. Stocks have been trending up for the past few weeks.  And with earnings season going fairly well, many traders may think the worst is over.  Yet, with the Federal Reserve rapidly tightening monetary conditions, and with inflation still running rampant, we may yet see another leg down for the markets. As with 2008, when the idea made the rounds that the pain in the subprime mortgage space was “contained,” there are any number of potential shocks to the economy that could cause the recent rally to stall.  We may already see that with the number of chipmakers this

Good morning. When it comes to America’s lawmaking process, you can get a good idea of what will happen by taking a law’s title and assuming the opposite.  Many are taking that approach with the “Inflation Reduction Act,” a law just passed by the Senate and moving to the House for a vote. Rather than cut back government spending, the law looks to increase it by hundreds of billions of dollars.  With the government running a deficit, chances are this legislation will add to, not reduce, inflationary pressures. That’s especially good news for the wealthy, as high-earners will be largely

Good morning. Friday’s strong jobs report brought the unemployment rate down to 3.5 percent.  While most would see that as good news, typically, the economy is at this level of employment at an economic peak.  Similar levels in 2020, 2007, and 2000 can attest to that. This strong report also gives the Fed a reason to keep aggressively raising interest rates.  The economy won’t cool down until more people are losing jobs than gaining them.  And given how fast the Fed has been hiking rates, the more likely it is that they could fuel a “hard landing” that they’re working
