Witch's RecipesGood morning.
If you’ve got a jet ski or boat, you might want to do your holiday shopping now by heading out West of Los Angeles harbor.  That’s because a record 111 container ships are offshore waiting to offload their cargo.  A few ships may have even dumped their cargo into international waters to move on to the next job.
If that’s not reason enough to see that supply chain issues will last well into 2022, trucking companies warn that the United States is short about 80,000 truck drivers to haul those goods from shore (or train) to their final destination.  Almost 75 percent of all freight needs to be trucked at some point in the supply chain, so this represents a major choke point.
We’ve been warning for weeks to do your holiday shopping early this year.  But now the best trade might be to stock up on essential goods to avoid your own personal disruption in the next few months.

Now here’s the rest of the news:

Some provisions essentially expire after a certain amount of time, but then are likely to be extended.  So the budget total looks smaller than the actual total cost… [Read Here]

The Season of Gift Giving is fast approaching … So knowing more about the person ‘receiving’ the gift makes the exchange special.

As wonderful as it would be to just magically convince another to share your views, love what you love, life doesn’t quite work that way.  People value different things.  Recognize what makes him/her tick.  Some value money, some value freedom, while others value happiness in relationships.  Whatever it is, know them and help people in accordance with their values.

If you want to know what someone values, pay attention to where (s)he spends most of his/her time.  If you want to know what someone is thinking often, just observe his/her actions.  To know what someone’s goals or dreams are, see what books or information materials (s)he reads/listens to.

No secret as to where my passion lies… 😉

Today “small town” in Newfoundland is… Salt Harbour. May 15, 2021 Struggling … how to break bad habits? “Nothing is impossible.  The word itself say, ‘I’m possible.’” –Audrey Hepburn There’s no one single reason why we struggle — to break bad habits, achieve our goals, or excel in our desired domain — but more often than not, the biggest challenge is sitting between your two ears. Yes, your mind is incredibly powerful, and quite frankly, it’s a double-edge sword.  The stories you tell yourself, the things you believe about yourself, and the way you talk to yourself can either be

Today! May 14, 2021 Good morning. One year ago, oil prices went negative as traders feared that the pandemic would lead to prolonged drops in oil use and got caught in trades they couldn’t get out of.  Today, oil and gasoline prices have held up well in inventory reports.  However, supply issues remain in the South and up and down the East Coast, even as Colonial pipeline paid a $5 million ransom to the hackers who shut down their system.  A number of states have declared emergencies as supplies have run low. It just goes to show that oil, one

Good morning. Meme stocks are back!  Well, sort of. A spike in companies like AMC Entertainment (AMC) and GameStop (GME) occurred yesterday.  GameStop was even halted multiple times on the way up (but not on the way down).  Oddly, this may be an early sign that markets are looking for a short-term bottom, given the sharp reversals higher. On CNBC, analyst Jim Cramer came out against the traders of meme stocks using sites like Reddit’s Wall Street Bets, to find the meme stock opportunities in the first place.  Tough words for someone whose television show features sound effects.  But for

Good morning. The good news?  Inflation has slightly slowed on a year-over-year basis, for the first time in seven months.  The bad news?  It’s still high at 8.3 percent.  And it came in higher than expectations. Looking at the data shows some reasons for the unexpected strength.  Most components of CPI still rose more than 6 percent in April.  But soaring food prices – which we’ve warned about fairly often — were a big contributor.  Another big move higher was record airfare prices, as high fuel costs and a reopened economy drove prices up. The data doesn’t give too much

Good morning. Typically, growth stocks lead the market.  That’s because these companies have the ability to scale up rapidly, and one of the best signs of a stock heading higher over the long haul is increased earnings. Yet every few years, value stocks have their time to shine.  A year ago, Warren Buffett’s performance as being derided.  Yet he’s buying stocks now.  In contrast, Ark Innovation, the hypergrowth fund managed by Cathie Wood, is now not just down relative to Buffett — but it’s underperforming the S&P 500 since its inception. Can these trends reverse in time?  Yes.  Will they

Good morning. Any econ 101 student can tell you that there’s a lag effect between something like, say, the creation of trillions of dollars in spending, and inflation rates reflecting that.  We’re seeing that trend play out today, with the highest inflation levels in decades. The good news?  Some of that new money first went to financial markets, rather than in goods and services.  That helped keep many things affordable, especially during the initial lockdown phase of the pandemic.  But today, we’re seeing the impacts of those past lockdowns (and current ones).  And we’re seeing that handing out money directly

Good morning. People don’t mind inflation when it hits things like assets.  When stocks and home prices are rising, consumers feel wealthier.  This “wealth effect” tends to be beneficial to spending, which then become a self-fulfilling prophecy. The 2009-2020 market rally started with this effect.  The bank bailouts propped up the banks, but didn’t cause inflation on Main Street.  Today, thanks to the stimulus measures during the pandemic, Main Street went on a spending binge.  That’s caused a reverse wealth effect as the prices of goods like food and utilities are rising at a rapid rate — but now asset
