Halloween Tax BreakGood morning.
The idea of a metaverse, or digital online realm, has been the stuff of science fiction.  But that “not too distant future” is about to come to the present.  Facebook just renamed its company to Meta Platforms (FB), and the company will even change its ticker symbol starting next month.  It’s no secret that a company that got billions to have eyes on computer and smartphone screens for years is looking to find new ways to engage users.
But Facebook is just the tip of the iceberg.  A number of other companies have announced metaverse plans in recent weeks.  Some will simply benefit from the trend thanks to their existing business.  Others are making a shift much like Facebook is.  In this special issue, we’ll look at what are likely to be the top 5 players in this rapidly-growing tech trend in the years ahead.

Now here’s the rest of the news:

How do you know an individual’s decision-making criteria?  “I just know it deep inside.” — This means I rely on myself … so you can customize your message, to me, by saying something like, “You probably already know deep inside that this product is the perfect choice.”

Airplane mode“Someone may seek the opinion outside, of an expert or do research, or rely on books.” — This means they rely on others, so you can craft your proposal by saying something like, “This strategy has proven to be the most cost-effective based on evidence gathered by…”

I have more of an “opportunity” mindset versus the “need” mindset.  “I love the opportunity to meet new people and take on exciting projects.” — I’m motivated by expectations of something great or exciting to occur in the future.  I’m seeking to be part of ‘the bigger picture.’

“Someone may need money to pay the monthly bills.” — This person is more likely to stay in their comfort zone, so words like “having a safe, secure job” are heaven to their ears.  Current needs are more satisfying that travel and adventure.

Darren’s words today are focused on just that!

Returning is part of any journey!  😉

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

The “Holiday Season” is officially here… Feeling guilty about that extra slice of pie?  Don’t beat yourself up!  It takes a lot of calories — 3,500 — to gain a pound of body fat.  So really, that one off day doesn’t usually result in any significant weight gain. It’s about what you

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.
