Based on the latest data from betting sites, today’s midterm elections will likely see the House of Representatives flip control to the Republican party. The Senate is closer to a tossup. But either way, we’re likely to see a divided government. When that happens, investors tend to get the best outcome.
That’s because with no political party in complete control of government, big, sweeping changes are off the table unless they enjoy broad support. It likely means that the “rules of the game” for investing are unlikely to change for two years. That’s why stocks tend to fare well.
While we’re still contending with a slowing economy and rising interest rates, two years of lowered political risk should generally be good for stocks. And with President Biden able to veto some projects like energy development on federal lands, expect some spaces like energy to continue to fare well.

The idea of a metaverse, or digital online realm, has been the stuff of science fiction. But that “not too distant future” is about to come to the present. Facebook just renamed its company to Meta Platforms (FB), and the company will even change its ticker symbol starting next month. It’s no secret that a company that got billions to have eyes on computer and smartphone screens for years is looking to find new ways to engage users.
But Facebook is just the tip of the iceberg. A number of other companies have announced metaverse plans in recent weeks. Some will simply benefit from the trend thanks to their existing business. Others are making a shift much like Facebook is. In this special issue, we’ll look at what are likely to be the top 5 players in this rapidly-growing tech trend in the years ahead.

The stock market is pushing back to all-time highs once again, as companies continue to beat their expectations for earnings season. Nearly three-quarters of all S&P 500 companies have beaten expectations – a reminder that Wall Street likes to set the bar just high enough for most companies to gracefully jump over it.
However, less than 60% of companies have beaten revenue expectations. That’s likely because it’s harder to get from revenue – actual money coming into a business – to look as attractive as final earnings after the various accounting adjustments that can be made along the way. So while the earnings numbers are great, it’s just a reminder that actual corporate health has slowed down just a tad.

How do you know an individual’s decision-making criteria? “I just know it deep inside.” — This means I rely on myself … so you can customize your message, to me, by saying something like, “You probably already know deep inside that this product is the perfect choice.”
“Someone may seek the opinion outside, of an expert or do research, or rely on books.” — This means they rely on others, so you can craft your proposal by saying something like, “This strategy has proven to be the most cost-effective based on evidence gathered by…”
I have more of an “opportunity” mindset versus the “need” mindset. “I love the opportunity to meet new people and take on exciting projects.” — I’m motivated by expectations of something great or exciting to occur in the future. I’m seeking to be part of ‘the bigger picture.’
“Someone may need money to pay the monthly bills.” — This person is more likely to stay in their comfort zone, so words like “having a safe, secure job” are heaven to their ears. Current needs are more satisfying that travel and adventure.
Darren’s words today are focused on just that!
