There was a time back in ‘95
Markets heart ran out of summers
But before they died, I asked them

Wait, what’s the sense in life
Returns for me, Returns for me

They said,

Son why you got to sing that tune
Dot com coming, Enron’s eclipse of the moon
Let an earner swing and make you swoon
Then you will see… You will see

Then they said,

Here’s a riddle for you
Find the Answer
There’s an earner you can find
ROI…

Picked up my pick from IBD today

Did you learn anything cause in the world today
You can’t live in a castle far away
Now teach to me, teach to me

They said,

Hey, they’re big but you’re smaller than small
In the scheme of things, well you’re nothing at all
Still every learner sings a lonely song
So play with me, come play with me

And I did
Here’s a riddle for you
Find the Answer
There’s an earner you can find
ROI…

They said,

Son for all I’ve told you
When you get right down to the
Reason for the world…
What am I?

There are secrets that we still have left to find (Gold bubble)
There have been mysteries from the beginning of time (Wealth Creation)
There are answers we’re not wise enough to see (Prepare)

They said… You looking for a clue and you learn free… (<==True Statement)

The batter swings and the balance flies
As I look into the model’s eyes
A song plays on while the moon is high over me
Something comes over me

I guess we’re big and I guess we’re small
If you think about it man you know we got it all
Cause we’re all we got on this bouncing ball
And you learn free
Capital flows freely

Here’s a riddle for you
Find the Answer
There’s an earner you can find
ROI…

We cannot conceive of matter being formed of nothing, since things require a seed to start from… Therefore there is not anything which returns to nothing, but all things return dissolved into their elements.
- William Shakespeare

Beware of the man who does not return your blow: he neither forgives you nor allows you to forgive yourself.
-George Bernard Shaw

A rise in the level of saving can reduce aggregate activity temporarily but only a sustained high level of saving makes it possible to have the sustained high level of business investment that contributes to the long-run growth of output.
-Martin Feldstein

Every time in this century we’ve lowered the tax rates across the board, on employment, on saving, investment and risk-taking in this economy, revenues went up, not down.
-Jack Kemp

My best investment is my imagination, because it has never failed to bring me my greatest returns!
-Randy Castillo

Happy Friday.

It has been a fun week, markets are teaching and there are opportunities
Keep learning, observe, calculate, estimate, act
Put your foot in the circle
Get used to the temperature changes

Stomach of steel, stick to the game plan
Be wary of the factors in play but don’t let them dictate
Learn. Learn. Read. Think. Learn.
It only gets harder as you learn more

Open field, room run to run
Forward, fall back, gain support, don’t lose focus
Set up position, fix your sights
Be READY

Hold Fast.
