Parcel Delivery_22Well…

My rant is with parcel delivery: UPS, Canada Post, Purolator don’t just drop your package at the door anymore… they want you home to receive it.  At least Amazon drops your package without regard for theives stealing it, although a package has never disappeared from my steps!

Market BenefitsGood morning.
A bear market will often shake investors out of speculative stocks.  And the more innovative an idea seemed on the way up – or the more capital it attracted – the worse the pullback when markets get a reality check.
Right now, the ESG narrative is unraveling. Short for “environmental, social, and governance,” the idea was for companies and institutions to make investments in projects like green energy or sustainable housing.  In a bull market and roaring economy, such moves seem reasonable for investors.  But when there are better profits in conventional energy than green energy, the ESG concept is moving to the backburner.
Case in point?  Vanguard, the world’s second-largest asset manager, is withdrawing from the Net Zero Asset Managers initiative.  And the state of Florida is pulling money out of funds that have likewise focused on social goals above the needs of shareholders first.  Traders can expect this trend to unwind as markets stay down… so there are opportunities elsewhere, and to potentially make short-side bets against some overvalued ESG plays.

Now here’s the rest of the news:

65 Trillion Dollars In “Hidden” Derivatives

If you thought that the collapse of FTX was something, just wait until the entire global financial system comes crashing down all around us.  Most people just assume that the system is being managed by rational people that behave in rational ways, but… [Read Here]

Good morning.
Part of the surprising strength of the housing market over the course of the pandemic has been the reaction to the housing bubble of the mid-2000s.  With excess inventory, new home growth slowed to a crawl, and this underinvestment in homes is now catching up, leading to higher prices for homeowners and new prospective buyers alike.
A similar “underinvestment” trend may have occurred in the US oil market over the past few years.  In 2014, OPEC members increased production to squeeze out smaller players, such as US shale producers.  This bear market likewise has led to years of underinvestment relative to today’s demand.  That may be why rising calls for oil to top $100 per barrel again may be right, and why those high prices may persist longer than expected.

Now here’s the rest of the news:

Biden White House in Panic-Mode Over the Economy
The view from Main Street matches a parallel survey of over 9,000 non-small business owners conducted by Momentive for CNBC, which shows only 21% of independents, and just 65% of Democrats, say Biden has been good for the economy.  In addition to the broader public opinion polling, the data from the… [Read Here]

Biden Targets Real Estate Investors with Bizarre New Program
The Biden administration is looking to expand reporting requirements on all-cash real estate deals to help crack down on bad actors’ use of the U.S. market to launder money made through illicit activity.  The Treasury Department was posting notice Monday seeking public comment for a… [Read Here]

Highly ContagiousGood morning.
In the new shot heard ‘round the world, 90-year-old UK citizen Margaret Keenan became the first Briton to receive the Pfizer vaccine or Covid-19.  While a full rollout will still take time – and needs to head across the pond to the United States, it’s a sign that a return to normal is in sight.
With a stock market near all-time highs, high but declining unemployment, and concerns over a second wave of lock-downs first, the news couldn’t come at a better time.  What’s even more remarkable about the achievement is the speed at which it occurred.  Covid-19 was only first identified just under one year ago this month.

Now here’s the rest of the news:

Are you ready for “The BIG Life Questions?”  Darren Hardy believes you are … and so do I.

And always remember this quote from Karen Salmansohn, “Breathe in the good shit. Breathe out the bullshit.”  Afterall, who’s truth is it?  😉
