The FREE Investment Newsletter That Really Works!
Well, in what might be a blessing for you all, today’s letter is going to be considerably shorter than usual. The topic I wanted to chat about today and that I did a ton of prep work on, got hung up, because I wanted to include an ‘actionable” step for you guys to take.
Trading the Election
I don’t know how many of you are active investors. I don’t know if you are active traders, or just happen to read our articles to get a sense of what’s happening behind the scenes.
On August 31st, Both Tesla and Apple will be splitting their stock. With TSLA it’s a 5 for 1, and with AAPL it’s a 4 for 1.
This is interesting and actually fun for a change. See, way back in the 90’s, companies split their stock a LOT. In fact, stock splits were so popular and so many people “chased” them, that we actually sold a product devoted to stock splits. It was literally a phone pager. When a split was announced, we’d send an alert to our paying subscribers, which told the company symbol, the type of split and the date.
Don’t Underestimate This
I know, I know, I’m supposed to write about markets and gold and making money and yada yada. But trust me, none of that matters if what I see coming down the pike keeps escalating.
Over a year ago, I said this country was going to be in a civil war. We’re in the beginning stages of that war right now. You might think the 60+ days rioting and looting in Portland and the rioting/looting we’ve seen in Detroit and Chicago is just going to simmer down. Go away. Return to normal. It is NOT.
Last weekend I wrote an article about the metals. Yes, I still love them, yes I think they’re going higher, and I spelled out some of the reasons for that. Things like the Fed’s taking their balance sheet to 7 trillion in months, things like a new cold war with china, things like the incredible impact of Covid on the world’s economies.
Just the Market
Yes folks, today’s letter is simply about the markets. No conspiracy theories, no talking Corona Virus, no debates about race issues. We’ve got many many weeks to continue talking about such things.
I want to devote today, to simply helping folks understand better how this market works.
End of Days
This letter is going to be a bit different, and I intend it that way. Look around. What do you see? Do you see a nation that even remotely resembles the USA of 1950?
