A Minute Please!Good morning.
Billionaires with most of their wealth tied up in a stock are often able to simply borrow against their holdings.  This avoids having to pay taxes on unrealized gains, and provides millions of dollars in “walking around” money while still profiting if those shares rise in value.  It takes a lot to get a billionaire to sell a meaningful amount of their shares.
But that’s the offer made by Tesla Motors (TSLA) CEO Elon Musk over the weekend.  He offered to sell $6 billion in shares and give it to the UN’s World Food Program.  The catch?  The agency would have to detail exactly how that money would be spent to end world hunger, rather than simply indefinitely continue operations as so many agencies created to combat a problem often do.
Anyone betting that Musk will have a tax bill on a $6 billion share sale anytime soon just doesn’t understand how these agencies operate.

Now here’s the rest of the news:

Guess WhoGood morning.
October once again proved to be a challenging month for stocks.  For 2020, it came in second to March.  The final drop came as many big-name tech companies reported good earnings.  Great earnings would have been better.  And it also didn’t help that many of these companies can’t offer much in the way of guidance in these uncertain times.
Many traders see that trend continuing.  While the election is tomorrow, a few pundits are pointing to contested elections that may drag out the final results for weeks.  That uncertainty could add additional volatility to stocks until it’s resolved.  Don’t worry, though.  Markets always find something to worry about.  So once the election uncertainty ends, it’ll be something else.  Today’s fear-based moves, however, are enough to make one wish for the China trade war volatility of 2019.

Now here’s the rest of the news:

Since making new highs this September, the Dow is down roughly 10% – just a day before the election.  And if the election is contested … the market could be in turmoil for weeks, maybe even months.
Do the best you can to make hay while the sun is shining.  But be aware that the storm clouds that are building right now are the most serious our ‘country’ has ever seen.

Good morning. Monday’s reversal of Friday’s big market drop shows that fear of new Covid variants is waning.  While that may change as new data on the latest variant comes in, traders didn’t have to wait that long.  Instead, they’ve been following the BTD playbook – and buying the dip. That’s been a successful play in general.  After all, markets rise over time.  However, this trend has been on steroids since the start of the pandemic, following the shortest bear market in history and a rise in retail traders armed with stimulus checks and nowhere to go.  As long as

Good morning. The half day US markets are open the day after Thanksgiving is usually one of the quietest trading days of the year. 2021 delivered the worst one-day performance for stocks instead, as a new version of Covid out of South Africa, dubbed the “Nu” variant, appeared to be spreading. While the market has had a selloff and sentiment has flipped from bullish to bearish overnight, we’ve learned from the Delta variant that markets can be volatile, but will likely remain resilient.  Still, traders may want to lighted up on their most aggressive trades, even if that goes against

Enjoy Silence Eliminate a life of expectation.  Expect less from people, and disentangle yourself from obligations.  Learn to say no so you have more time and space to say yes to what you want in life. At home: Get rid of stuff you’re always moving from place to place.  If you don’t love everything around you, then toss it. Do your shopping once a week.  Those quick pit stops to the grocery store a few times a week take time away from something else. Do laundry less often.  Simplify your wardrobe, and you’ll have more pieces to mix and match.

Good morning. It’s been 624 days since “15 days to flatten the curve,” kicked off the part of the pandemic where the economy was deliberately shut down.  Unlike a light switch, however, it’s not the sort of thing to start back up again.  Trillions were spent propping up the economy with extended benefits and stimulus checks. The labor market is improving but still in disarray.  Inflation and job demand has pushed up wages, creating a “Great Resignation.”  And for all the time, effort, and money spent to create these new problems, those fortunate enough to invest in the stock market

Good morning, and Happy Thanksgiving. Oil prices somehow moved up on Tuesday, despite President Biden’s announcement that the Strategic Petroleum Reserve would be tapped, bringing 50 million barrels of oil onto the market on top of additional releases so far. The problem?  While that number sounds impressive, markets were pricing in 100 million barrels instead to really shock the market.  The move was small enough to earn a mocking note from Goldman Sachs (GS), which continues to see oil prices rising into 2022 on rising global demand, without even adding in factors such as inflation.  Prepare for more pain at

Good morning. No, it’s not a mythical creature from a game of Dungeons & Dragons or Lord of the Rings.  It’s a term for Organized Retail Crime.  And it’s on the rise. Pandemic-era mask mandates have made retail theft substantially easier.  And some jurisdictions such as in San Francisco have eliminated any criminal penalty or law enforcement resources for thefts under $950.  That’s caused a number of retailers to flag organized thieves, but at the cost of millions in inventory losses, including some who hit up multiple stores in some areas looking for items to resell cheaply online.
