Electric Vehicles

 

This is going to be part one of a two part article about EV’s. Love them, hate them, or ignore them, they’re here to stay. But, there’s so much to the story that most people aren’t thinking about, that maybe there’s some way to capitalize on this growth.  As always, the issue is “storage” meaning batteries, and it’s the stuff in the batteries that is getting hard to find.  So, let’s get through some of softball stuff fist.

Good morning everyone, welcome to a new day. 

You all know what happened yesterday. Because of a few big name DOW stocks "supposedly" doing will with earnings, we had a 167 point DOW rally. It didn't quite spread too much into the S&P which only managed 4 points, or the NASDAQ which was lucky to get 11 since it was actually red a couple times during the morning shift.

Hello everyone, welcome to another day. ( and what a day it might become!)

So yesterday was pause day. After the giant surge Friday, they had to digest the gains and we were flat for the bulk of the session. Heading into the close with the DOW off 55 and the S&P down 10, I didn't for a minute think this was the start of some big roll over. While "any" day could start a major roll over crash, why would it start yesterday?

Good morning all, welcome back from your weekend. I trust it was a pleasant one for you and you enjoyed it with family and friends. Ours was quiet but nice, as some relatives from "up north" stopped by during their vacation and the family got a chance to meet up with them and have a nice dinner.  On Sunday, the wife had her mind set that some shrubs and ornamental plants "WERE" getting trimmed up, and there was no way out of that one. Luckily I employed the help of my younger son and boy isn't youth wonderful?  I remember having energy like that. It got done. 

10.21.2017 - Bitcoin Bookmark

Yes folks, Bitcoin. It seems to defy gravity, it goes up relentlessly, and people are piling into it. Where did it really come from. Is it anonymous as they say? Was there a purpose behind it? Who really "invented it?"   We chew on some of these topics in the general commentary tonight. 

 

In the market commentary, we talk about the drive to all time new highs, which has now happened 55 times this year. What's behind it? Can it stop?  What if it stops?   Is this the new normal?

At The End of The Day
 
Over the years I’ve been asked about Bitcoin many times. For the most part my answer to it has remained about the same “at the end of the day, it’s a fiat currency”.  Now to the Bitcoin lovers, I’m just stupid. I have no problem with that. But then, do tell me...what exactly is Bitcoin backed by? Oh, digits “mined” from computer algorithms. In other words, I can’t exchange my Bitcoin for say gold, or silver? No. How about copper or Iron? Nope.

Did you see it? Yes folks, the market that opened down 100 points, did it's magic yesterday and ended the day green. How corrupt are things when they can't even allow a single day of red? Very I'd say, but that's life in 2017.  But wait it gets better. Last evening they were working on the budget and the latest iteration of it passed 51-49 along party lines. Well, the "markets" took that as progress towards tax reform and this morning the futures are on fire.

Hello everyone, welcome to a new day. 

Well, the mysteries continue. No matter where you look, you have to scratch your head and go "huh?"  The Vegas shooting is now a mess of misinformation that's bigger than anything I've seen since 9/11.  The news about how the FBI knew all about Hillary setting up uranium deals with Russia, including bribery and State department collusion, yet hid it all under Obama. It never ends.  Why isn't the media ( other than the poor alternative sites that get blasted by slimy main stream media) talking about this?? Hannity did a 14 minute monologue about how the FBI discovered money routing from Russia to Bill Clinton and the Hillary foundation LONG before Obama announced and granted the nuclear deal with Russia. 

10.18.2017 - Kimchi? Bookmark

Hi all!  Today's commentary is way off the beaten path. On Sunday I was exchanging recipes with a friend of ours and she asked me if I knew anyone that made their own Kimchi ( the National food of Korea).  I said yes indeed, I've been making it for years and sent her my recipe. Then it dawned on me that I haven't put a recipe in any of our letters....ever? Well, if I did it was a long long time ago. 

 

So the general commentary is about the benefits of this incredible fermented food. The Market commentary is about the insatiable rise in the market as we gained yet another 160 points on the DOW today. Yes IBM was responsible for 100 of them, but the average person doesn't know that. We are now firmly over DOW 23,000. Amazing but true. 

 

As you can see, today's letter is a fun mix. Give it a read and hey, go make yourself some Kimchi, it's great stuff!
