Learning StyleGood morning.
The S&P 500 is looking set to rise about 15 percent for 2020.  That’s a great return for the average year.  For a year with a pandemic?  It’s exceptional.  At the start of the year, predicting the Dow over 30,000 seemed obvious.  By mid-March, it would sound crazy.
Meanwhile, the market’s love of stimulus may get an even bigger boost.  The $600 stimulus per person may become $2,000.  For now. 2021 may bring about even more stimulus, especially if prolonged lockdowns continue into the start of the year.  That will probably help markets continue their epic pandemic rally.

Now here’s the rest of the news:

Digital Currencies Will End U.S. Dollar Dominance  Since the Great Financial Crisis, central bank gold reserves have risen rapidly.  Many counties have sought to diversify their reserves away from the U.S. dollar.

My micro-businessHousing data for 2019 is still coming in, and it’s mostly good news for homeowners.  Prices rose in most cities by an average of 2.2% year-over-year, the fastest since May.

Good Morning,

As we head into 2019, I wanted to share a message from Brian Tracy.  Brian Tracy is a mentor of mine… whom I respect dearly.  I’ll call today’s message simply:

Action Exercises

Here are two things you can do, all day long, to keep your mind and emotions focused on your goals and financial success:

First, listen to audio programs in your car and when you travel around.  Continue feeding your mind with a stream of high-quality, educational, motivational material that moves you toward your goal.

Second, resolve to associate with positive, optimistic people.  Get around winners and get away from negative people who criticize, condemn and complain.

This can change your life as much as any other factor.

To Your Continuous Positivity,

Brian Tracy

Last day for the stock market world today!  Hope you’ve made your fortune.

Gold bounced up a bit yesterday,  Barrick moved up around $1.40 on a $20 stock.  Bit rich for me to hold many shares; 25 of those babies for 48 hours netted me $55.  Doesn’t sound either good or bad, just nice to have going into my pocket rather than out of it.  Enough about stocks.

Hope to post pictures on this blog along with articles of personal interest … no business, unless it is something important or funny that happened at work.  I will be talking about my vacation to the East Coast in the coming months. Hope to visit Nova Scotia and Prince Edward Island.  Newfoundland and Labrador will have to wait for another year!

All for now!  Got to get ready to go out for a bit!  Bye.

“When trauma comes, we can learn from it, heal from it, and move through it.” –Dr. James Gordon Listen, Pause, Clarify and Validate Our ability to communicate effectively is one of the most precious skills we can develop.  Most of the time, when we think of communicating well, we think of effectively expressing ourselves.  This is certainly important, but listening is the single most important of all communication skills.  It’s what Stephen Covey calls “Seek first to understand and then to be understood.” Listen First and foremost, we must actively listen to what someone is saying.  Perhaps we were given

Good morning. Wednesday’s inflation numbers came in at a 15 year high.  But beyond the headlines, core inflation numbers have started to show a slowdown, with a rise of 0.2 percent from August.  It’s not a reversal, but a still-hidden sign that inflation may be moderating.  The bond market picked up on the news, with yields ticking down slightly. If that’s the case, then many of the fears impacting the market right now may go away.  That could explain part of Thursday’s rally, on top of the debt ceiling delay to December.  While we’re not out of the woods yet

Good morning. Inflation may be the headline story, but it’s just one factor that could impact corporate profitability this earnings season.  Many companies are able to pass on rising costs to customers from run-of-the-mill inflation.  But higher energy prices, which have been running hotter than official inflation measures, represent a much larger bill for many companies.  We’re already starting to see warnings on that front, including form airline companies, as oil prices hit a seven-year high. But there’s one more threat out there.  Last week, 136 nations signed an agreement on a minimum corporate tax rate of at least 15

Good morning. Earnings season is kicking off in earnest this week.  Typically, companies are able to beat expectations most of the time as Wall Street analysts adjust their expectations ahead of the results.  This time around, with companies coming off one-year numbers that look good from the lockdown era, combined with rising labor and energy costs, it’s possible that earnings may have peaked for the time being. If that’s the case, it comes down to guidance and expectations as to where the market goes from here into the end of the year.  With a labor market that’s still somewhat sluggish,

Good morning. One sign of an overvalued market occurs when company CEOs step down from their role, often after many years.  It’s tough to bow out at the top, and those who can will try to do so, rather than stay too long and get forced out after a bad decision or market events destroy shareholder value.  We saw a large rush of company executives leave in early 2020, just into the pandemic selloff. Now, that trend has slowed down.  But it’s not over yet.  Henry Kravis and George Roberts, founders of private equity giant KKR, are stepping down as

Good morning. The term “unicorn” was created to describe startup companies that had a valuation of over $1 billion based on their latest round of funding.  The notion was that such a company should be rare, as at that size it would make sense to take a company public. Yet today there are hundreds of unicorns.  The rare species has become a herd.  And none is bigger than SpaceX, the space exploration company run by Elon Musk.  A recent funding round has led the company to become the first centi-billionaire firm, with a valuation of over $100 billion. By the
