Up, Up and AwayGood morning.
Covid cases hit a record high yesterday.  While President Trump continues to assert that the case numbers are up because testing is up, stocks are forward looking.
Looking at the Biden transition team, a push is already being made for a 4-6 week lockdown until a vaccine can be widely distributed.  If so, the stock market could be in for another meltdown in early 2021, even with the Federal Reserve pumping like crazy.  It’s easy to see why stocks have now mostly given back the gains from the Pfizer vaccine news.

Now here’s the rest of the news:

During times of tribulation, my Greek grandmother usually invoked this village wisdom: “The dogs may bark, but the caravan moves on.”  If my Yia Yia were alive today, she’d probably apply those words to the current political situation in America.
Spooked by all the post-election barking?  Just move on.  Regardless of your political affiliation, you can take this statement to the bank: Joseph R. Biden will be sworn in as the 46th president of the United States on January 20, 2021.  That date is set by the 20th Amendment to the U.S. Constitution, meaning it’s enshrined in law.
Typically in the past, the loser of the presidential race would give a gracious concession speech and accept the results.  But the law does not require a concession; that’s merely social custom.  Biden has clinched insurmountable leads in the Electoral College and popular vote.  Efforts to overturn the results based on charges of “fraud” are doomed to fail.  [Move On!]

Craft Your Magic!

When creating you magic; errr … sales message, make the prospect feel that who (s)he currently is — or what (s)he currently has — is not good enough.  It is now your duty to let him/her feel the agony of staying at his/her current status.  Make him/her visualize the undesirable outcome for not making any change in his/her life.  Here’s Darren Hardy to share more wisdom…

If you can craft your message in a way that it appeals with one or more of the triggers below, you are more likely to get better results.

      1. Desire for pleasure
      2. Fear of pain
      3. Having/saving more money
      4. Prevention of loss of money
      5. Attainment of excellent health and long life
      6. Enhancement of relationships
      7. The need for love, respect, security, recognition, and trust

Probably the biggest motivators are pleasure and pain.
Sex, drugs & rock-‘n’-roll.  😉

Good morning. As much as Wall Street loves rumors, Washington DC is the major league.  The latest rumors are that Federal Reserve Chairman Jerome Powell might not be nominated for a second term to lead the Fed.  While his tenure has been little different than his prior two predecessors given the crises he’s had to deal with, some progressives don’t think the Fed chair has done enough on income inequality and other matters. That could lead the White House to find a more radical leader for the central bank, potentially even one willing to embrace the latest economic theories such

Letting Go Of Guilt “Guilt can stop us from taking healthy care of ourselves.” –Melody Beattie Guilt is like a rock.  It sits in the pit of our stomachs and can weigh down our every thought, behavior, and action.  It can distract us all throughout the day and keep us awake at night.  Our muscles work overtime just to carry it around, and yet we still hold onto it. It’s imperative that we stop feeling so guilty. That’s not to say that you shouldn’t feel guilt.  True guilt is a loving instrument from Spiritual Guidance used to convict, correct, and confirm your

Good morning. Technology companies need to constantly innovate.  That results in a high amount of money being spent on research and development, which in turn helps keep a company’s taxes lower than a company that makes the same product year-in, year-out. So it’s no surprise that regulators are always on the lookout for ways to try and get more taxes out of these massive firms that often have little to no earnings.  One proposal is being floated for a new generation of technology: a space tax.  Or, more specifically, a per-passenger tax on space flights like the ones just completed

Good morning. The rise of retail traders over the past year has likely saved a number of companies from bankruptcy, or helped bankrupt companies bounce back and exit bankruptcy faster.  That’s created a lot of interest in finding short squeeze stocks for big, fast profits.  It’s also driven traders into options to play the trend as well. One area can also be at play for big bucks: Corporate bond markets. Case in point, 2026 bonds for AMC Entertainment (AMC) traded as low as 5 cents on the dollar last year, but have no rallied back to par.  Buyers would have

Good morning. Investors sometime take a very binary approach to stocks.  They’re either all-in on a position, or they’re in cash or a different trade.  Rather than buy all at once, however, astute traders know when to average in.  As long as a company’s prospects don’t fundamentally change, this move allows investors to still have the option of cash, with the ability to buy more shares of a company when the market declines. So while Goldman Sachs (GS) recently warned clients not to buy Monday’s drop, retail investors saw a dip to buy instead.  With stocks hitting resistance at their

Good morning. The stock market was in freefall Monday, much like a mini-version of its March 2020 decline.  Is this the next big sell-off?  Probably not.  Monday’s fears, based on rising mask mandate re-impositions and a few select lockdown threats around the world, are likely being overblown. In the meantime, the bigger market concern is whether or not the current economic growth is sustainable.  The facts are that it will likely slow.  Not the best news, but not the worst news either.  And inflation expectations continue to rise.  But with a lumber market shouting “timber” as it comes back down
