Lucky YouGood morning.
It’s clear from the stock market’s strong performance yesterday that Wall Street has a clear favorite in the election.  The winner?  Gridlock.  With a Republican-controlled Senate and Democratic-controlled House of Representatives, the final winner of the White House will be hamstrung.  They won’t be able to pass their party’s agenda.
But they will be able to engage in bi-partisan handouts.  The most likely first stop is in another stimulus plan.  That’s why the stock market soared as the election uncertainty ended.  With some big potential changes in tax rates or regulating the healthcare industry off the table, corporate America isn’t expecting any big changes… at least until the next election.

Now here’s the rest of the news:

Regardless of who wins the White House, next year should usher in a new era of growth.  First, let’s examine the near-term risks.  Don’t get me wrong, the outlook for stocks remains positive over the long term.
As Americans this week nervously await the official winner of the presidential election, all eyes have turned to our country’s interim leader.  I’m referring to Jerome Powell.
The coronavirus crisis is getting worse, Congress is mired in political paralysis, and the presidency hangs in the balance.  In this vacuum, the U.S. central bank has been functioning as a de facto fourth branch of government.  That makes Fed Chief Powell a highly influential voice.
A new fiscal stimulus bill might get enacted during a post-election lame duck session of Congress, but in this fractious political climate, the odds aren’t good.  We’ll probably have to wait until 2021, a reality that makes the Federal Reserve the major player right now in shoring up the pandemic-wounded economy.

When is too much of a good thing too much?  Or too little, too late?  What have you done with your first million dollars earned?  Questions without answers.  Here’s todays’ DarrenDaily…

Why?  Why can’t people see what we see?  Why don’t they get excited about the benefits we offer?

Son, Just tell them a story!!The answer is how we communicate with people.  This attention, retention, and remembering is accomplished best with a story.  Stories are the most natural way of learning and remembering.  We can’t remember facts one hour later, but we remember movies years later.  When we deliver information in a story format, our listeners pay attention and remember.

An easy solution to a difficult problem.  Try to include our most important facts within a story, and we will make a difference in our listeners’ lives.

Problem solved!  😉

“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
