I will be the first to admit that Oil and Gas are not my specialties. so please do your own due diligence on this information. Consider these as “breadcrumbs” into more news that may develop this week. I will try to keep this short with reference links below this article for more information.

I was bullish on the technology sector throughout 2019 and throughout most of 2020. These are some basic thoughts for what I’ve noticed in the market recently.

Back in 2019 we had low and stable money growth (% year-over-year basis). John Greenwood of Invesco cited this as the primary reason for the longevity of the bull market. The past cycles characterized with faster money growth (M2), only drop when inflation rises.

Throughout 2020 the Fed sent M2 parabolic (terms of growth, year-over-year) above and beyond anything we have ever seen. While it’s going up, is a huge buy symbol, but…


Open discussion: Will we see a Tesla Coin?

I will attempt to make this as short as I can due to the topic being open for discussion and not very informative. I noticed that today, February 21st, 2021 Elon Musk updated his Twitter profile to read “meta fork”. Because of all the recent cryptocurrency talk from Elon’s Twitter, and his previous profile bio reading #bitcoin “cryptocurrency fork” stood out to me.

“A cryptocurrency fork is an update to the software governing the distributed network that makes existing rules either valid or invalid — sometimes resulting in spinoff versions of Bitcoin.”


Bank of America and the blockchain future

Bank of America forward looking with Blockchain and Cryptocurrency
Bank of America forward looking with Blockchain and Cryptocurrency

Blockchain, Bitcoin and Cryptocurrency; these words carry a type of fear and taboo when mentioned around others. Yet hard to ignore due to the most recent and past controversies during 2020. We have witnessed arguments over voter fraud, as well as Social Security Numbers in the past stolen with the result of identify theft, and just today (December 13th, 2020) the “U.S. Treasury breached by hackers backed by foreign government”.

“The hack is so serious it led to a National Security Council meeting at the White House on Saturday, said one of the people familiar with the matter.”

Lululemon Athletica Inc — 2020 Q3 Earnings Report

The Foreplay…

Have you tried our new jeans yet?” was an all to common tag line as a past Abercrombie & Fitch employee taught to greet customers. Lululemon becomes no different, but has become a powerhouse in branding and producing margins. Lululemon even branded their employees with a customer centric and friendly title “Educators”, which part of their practice is to make sure customers are not only greeted, but offered unsolicited education about each product.

This is a company that has a cult following almost as great as Tesla’s cult following, once they reel you in, you keep coming back… and yes…


Palantir Technologies Inc

On November 30th, Peter Thiel recorded on a Form 4 a Conversion of 14,487,124 Class B Commons over to 14,487,124 Class A Commons. https://sec.report/Document/0001209191-20-061332/

Class B conversion to Class A, Peter Thiel p. 82: https://www.sec.gov/Archives/edgar/data/1321655/000119312520230013/d904406ds1.htm

In my own opinion this could be a bullish move for Thiel. This does not increase his equity in the company as some may lead you to believe. …


Just a quick post before bed, this is a sneak peak into my Roth IRA (View the link below). The purpose of this is not dividends, but instead growth.

I have 2 other sections within my Roth IRA, one through M1 Finance called; “2055 Aggressive” (95% all Vanguard funds) and another that consists of $SCHD, $VYM and $VNQ, in which all 3 compound through dividend reinvestment.

Yes, you can buy and sell within a Roth IRA — as long as you DO NOT withdraw from it.

As of Nov. 30th, 2020.

Perhaps we have received our first hint at Apple’s car? Or maybe this will become an optional feature for any car manufacture offering Apple’s Carplay? Either way, I’m still very bullish on Apple.

Apple as of Friday in after hours was trading at $116.44 which is above the 20 SMA of $116.19 — although still drastically above the 200 SMA of $93.75. The 50 SMA may give us a bit more accurate of a spot to leg in near under $115.33, but anything below $112.56 (100 SMA) would be ideal as well. There is definitely a chance pending news we…


U.S. publicly traded companies to have their books audited

Not 100% on this information, could just be rumor.

Senate Bill S945 is up for a vote at the house this Wednesday.

The bill will likely pass and then get passed onto Trump.

Trump is expected to sign it into law.

If signed into law, companies that don’t comply will be delisted. Chinese government subsidized companies like $NIO, $LI, $XPEV will likely be affected.

Companies like $BABA, $JD that are considered Chinese stocks but not owned by the Chinese government have less chance of being affected.

This bill requires U.S. publicly traded companies to have their books audited by an…
