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!  😉

Good morning. Hedge funds have been selling their tech stocks for 9 of the past 10 sessions, based on brokerage data.  What’s more, these funds have been selling more than they own, essentially going short.  That’s a huge reason for the weakness in tech in the past few weeks, even as the overall markets remain near all-time highs. The last time funds were this short was back in late December, right before a surge in some smaller-cap tech names in January and February.  Based on this data, traders may want to look at some call options on the tech space

Good morning. Most sectors of the economy have been on fire this year.  But, there’s one area that’s steeply in a bear market.  It’s the media, more specifically the news media.  Cable news outlets have reported viewer drops as much as 50 percent.  And the New York Times Company (NYT) reported a sharp slowdown in growth. It’s no surprise that the news media benefited in the past few years from the public’s interest in all things Donald Trump.  Now, with Trump out of the White House and the media avoiding stories about him, it’s no surprise that viewers are going

Good morning. It’s been a great earnings season.  But companies like Amazon (AMZN) are now in correction territory, down 10 percent, since reporting record blowout numbers.  Other big tech names are in the same spot.  And smaller tech plays?  They’re likely already in a bear market. It’s a combination of factors at work.  The first is rising inflation numbers. The second is the prospect of higher interest rates to curb inflation.  And finally there’s the fact that companies are coming off of earnings that look great compared to a year ago at the start of the pandemic.  All these factors

Good morning. Online auction site eBay (EBAY) became huge in the 1990s thanks to the demand for Beanie Babies.  As the central site for that fad, the company was able to expand and survive the internet bubble. Now, the company is looking to enable cryptocurrency payments, to better serve its customers.  It’s also looking to break into the NFT, or non-fungible token market.  NFTs are digital assets like a picture or song.  While they can be copied, blockchain data provides the owner of the NFT with the assurance that they are, in fact, the original owner.  NFTs have been big

Good morning. The stock market had its steepest and shortest bear market last year, with a contraction of nearly 30 percent within the span of a month.  Now, a year into a recovery, the rally in stocks has started to slow. One reason? Growing policy uncertainty.  Stocks sold off Friday as a Fed President made the case for housing getting into bubble territory and a need for interest rate hikes next year.  Just like in the early 2020s, in the post-financial crisis rebound, fears of reduced monetary policy are usually good to create a pullback in markets. We’re still a
