Only Mask They HadGood morning.
When markets, or an individual sector attract too much investor interest, crazy things start to happen.  Companies with no expertise in the area jump into the trade too.  One great example is the Long Island Iced Tea company, which made a splash in late 2017 when it announced it was getting into cryptocurrencies.
This time around, interest is in electric vehicles.  While it’s a huge trend with a lot of upside in the years ahead, it’s a bit odd that a company known as Naked Brand Group (NAKD), which sells lingerie and swimwear online, announced a merger agreement with an AI Autonomous Driving company, Cenntro Automotive Group.  With shares up nearly 30 percent on the announcement, however, it’s clear investors are willing to give any stock support as long as it’s investing in where things are how now.

Now here’s the rest of the news:

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!  🙂

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.
