The Fed’s Actions Will Boost These 2 Sectors

Here we go again… Get ready for more headlines over another stimulus package. Congress has reconvened with a busy schedule over the next couple of weeks. First, lawmakers must reach a deal by the end of next week on a new spending plan to fund the federal government or risk a shutdown. They must also try again to hammer out a new fiscal stimulus plan. Their pre-election effort provided plenty of market-moving developments, but no deal. Now, as I write this, there are no fewer than three separate proposals in circulation. It’s anyone’s guess if we’ll end up with a[…]

The Biggest Stock Market Danger of 2021

Investing is a lot like sailing. Back when I delivered and raced sailboats on the open ocean, you picked your heading and set the sails accordingly. The wind took care of the rest. Other times it was all hands on deck. Reefs, dangerous currents and massive merchant ships at close quarters required constant vigilance and course corrections. For investors, autopilot has worked well for much of the last decade. The Federal Reserve’s largesse produced an epic bull run. It’s been easy to go along for the ride. The COVID-19 pandemic changed all that. The Fed is still providing a steady[…]

Like, I don’t know … you finally get an order confirmation for a PlayStation 5 — something you dreamt about buying since it launched — and all of a sudden, that order gets canceled? No warning.

What the Wright Brothers Taught Me About Bitcoin

On December 17, 1903, the Wright brothers flew the first successful heavier-than-air powered aircraft. A short four years later, both the U.S. and French armies contracted the brothers to build a flying machine for military use. In World War I, there were 50 different aircraft designs and over 200,000 planes constructed for reconnaissance and combat missions. And although the first scheduled passenger air service traveled between St. Petersburg and Tampa, Florida, in 1914, it wasn’t until the 1950s that commercial air travel really took off. It took a few decades for the modern jet engine to replace the early piston[…]

How Will We Know the Winners of the Pandemic?

What counts as a real shift … or just a fad? Which changes will last … and which will change back? The pandemic has given us plenty of new tricks. We’re working from home instead of offices. We’re connecting with teachers online instead of in classrooms.  We’re having our groceries delivered to our doorsteps rather than making supermarket trips. And we’re having family events over Zoom as an alternative to traveling. We’ve definitely learned to cope with the effects of COVID-19 on the world. Businesses have, too. Companies are adjusting their physical store layouts to follow social-distancing guidelines. And they’re[…]
