Door #1Good morning.
Stocks jumped on Monday, with the Dow and S&P 500 hitting new all-time highs.  The news comes as Pfizer announced a Covid-19 vaccine.  Combined with the media’s projection of Joe Biden as the next President of the United States over the weekend, two of the largest uncertainties facing the market today appear to be nearing an end.
Just remember: Nothing moves in a straight line, and there will still be opportunities to profit from short-term drops as well.  That was seen with the Nasdaq, where many work-from-home themed tech stocks soured on the latest news.  A bigger market shift from tech to value may be starting.

Now here’s the rest of the news:

There has been different viewpoints from previous U.S. Presidents like George W. Bush (a former Texas oilman) to Barack Obama who took office campaigning on combating climate change and reducing oil dependency – to Donald Trump that “was in favor of the Canada Pipeline” to now, President Elect Joe Biden – that is thought to (again) focus on renewable energy and climate change.
What I conclude from all this: That a president just doesn’t have a lot of impact on oil markets.  Or, if there is an impact, it takes years to materialize.  Time will tell…

The way things are shaping up, the Biden economy appears likely to show uncanny similarities to the 2011-to 2016 Obama economy.  The next U.S. administration will likely face a global debt crisis that could dwarf what the world experienced in 2008-2009. [I’m talking about “zombies.”  These are companies that can’t afford their debt.  They don’t earn enough profit to cover interest … let alone repay their debt when it comes due.]  We are all like the walking dead … only kept alive by creditors willing to lend more money to pay off their debt as it comes due.

What is the real difference between a person who seeks pleasure and one which avoids pain?  How can your conversation appeal to each person individuality?  Having differences in teammates is inevitable.  Why they join your team is as unique as their reality.  What magically holds the team together?  I believe it’s Integrity…  (an honest understanding of their reality).  I’ll try to explain:

If your friend answered, “I want to travel around the world and buy anything I want.” — You would share an opportunity to go to exciting destinations, meet successful people, eat at the finest restaurants, and shop to your friends’ heart delight.”  Your ‘travel club’ food, fun & sun caters to your friend’s pleasure.

A different friend says, “I don’t want to suffer from poverty and constant worrying of where I will get the money to pay for the bills.” — This means they want to avoid pain, so you can craft your message by saying something like, “With the same twenty-four hours in the day, you’ll never have to experience seasonal layoffs,  ‘down-time’, or the agony of stressful labor…”  Developing your own part-time business could transform your life!  Are you interested in knowing how?

To tailor your ‘sales-message’ is part art … part science.
Most importantly, we want, to honestly be of service!  🙂

Ten Ways To Foster Innovation In order to compete effectively, we must look for new and better ways to accomplish our mission.  We must find creative methods to delight our customers.  And we must find innovative strategies for getting more done with fewer resources. With things changing as rapidly as they are, doing things the old way won’t be profitable for very long.  To grow, we must be constantly innovating. An innovative company attracts and keeps better employees.  People want to be part of something creative.  It’s stimulating and it’s fun. Here are ten things you can do to foster

Good morning. We’re fans of following company insiders when they buy their own shares.  That’s because they only buy if they see a good value going forward.  Most company insiders are partially compensated in shares, so they have plenty of reasons to sell, from portfolio diversification to big spending bills like a second house or divorce. Overall, buying with company insiders produces excess returns compared to the market.  But they’re not the only insider group out there. Consider Congress.  Last year, two senators sold off stocks after an early hearing on Covid and before the big crash.  House Speaker Nancy

Good morning. Yesterday marked the 13th anniversary of the collapse of Lehman Brothers, a “victim” of over leverage on the US housing market.  Yesterday also marked the day when Evergrande, a Chinese real estate firm, stated that it wouldn’t pay interest on its already-collapsing bonds. For years, many have warned about the size and rate of China’s real estate buildup, from empty cities to investment homes that sit unused (one of the few places where citizens can park cash).  While we’re optimistic that the damage can be contained to China and not impact global growth too much, we also can’t

Good morning. We’ve warned for weeks that stocks are at elevated levels, and that a modest pullback would be likely.  Now, however, investor sentiment has gotten heavily bearish, for more than just a small pullback. That’s somewhat concerning, as fears of a market pullback could lead to enough profit-taking and cash-raising that it becomes a self-fulfilling prophecy.  However, a market so quick to get so bearish could also be a sign that there’s still a major rally ahead.  Bull markets don’t die when investors get fearful.  Rather, it’s when investors get so bullish that they go all-in at record highs.

Good morning. With Labor Day weekend over, oil prices should be trending down.  The summer driving season in North America is over, and it’s largely an American phenomenon.  However, expectations for a potentially colder-than-average winter are keeping a bid under oil prices right now. At a time when traders typically expect lower prices going forward, oil is now at a 5-week high and trending higher.  And Bank of America analysts see crude oil pumping as much as $100 per barrel under an exceptionally cold winter scenario.  It’s likely that gas prices may remain higher for longer than expected, and can

Good morning. Last week, Treasury Secretary Janet Yellen warned that the measures underway to preserve cash at the US Treasury were likely to run out in mid-October.  Unless Congress acts to raise the debt ceiling, there could be a potentially debt cliff where a number of government programs simply don’t get paid. That’s a scenario that nearly unfolded in 2011. 10 years ago, it also provided the stock market with a flat return for the year and a closest thing to a selloff since the housing crisis two years before that.  Last week’s market weakness may be starting to reflect
