“Games are won by players who focus on the playing field –- not by those whose eyes are glued to the scoreboard.”
As the summer wears down its’ hazy pathway, the regularly-feared monsters will come and go. Interest rates, inflation, oil costs, housing shortages, variants and vaccine reactions will come and go. Heck, you can be assured that even good news will be cloaked as bad news. I’ll give you an example:
“Lines create significant delays for security checkpoints as airports overwhelmed with return to summer travel.”
I don’t know where we collectively decided that we would feed a system that would deliver us strife and stress all the time – but we did. You’d be amazed how well you feel the world is doing when you stop watching the news feed. I digress.
I’ll keep it short this week as many will be working all week to plan on leaving work for the second long weekend of the summer. The July 4th break likely starts about mid-week for most – LOL. If you fall into that category, we wish you the best of the long summer weekend with family and friends.
Continuing their climb up the mountain, earnings numbers look solid. It is all somewhat imaginary as one can be assured, the numbers will come up short overall as analysts continue their tepid acceptance that the pandemic completely reshaped the economy’s operations. Margins are set to surprise as that onion is peeled.
