11.7.21: Stock Market Research, College Degree Requirement Drop-Off, Infrastructure Revamp, and Semi-Conductor Updates

Flow and Ebb of the Stock Market: New study lays out theory, defining market fluctuation. The theory revolves around cash flow in and out of market. For every dollar that goes into the market, it shows a response of $5 increase; the reverse effect is also true for a dollar taken out: when markets are bullish, more people tend to buy in, causing the market to continue to compound upon itself. The research performed, shows the market rise, share buybacks and government stock purchases are potential market catalysts, as shown in the study by: https://papers.ssrn.com/sol3/papers.cfm?abstract_id=3686935

College Degrees: Are now less important for the labor market than two years ago. While education is what moves us forward, the requirement for degrees has been reduced by nearly 16% for many job occupations – reported by EMSI Consultant group. Employers are hamstrung by the current market; an ease in restrictions and barriers is assumed, however, in the future, the restrictions may return. Restrictions are introduced in a labor market where employers are able to be more selective. Economists do not expect the labor market to return to pre-pandemic levels. Open hire events continue to represent the needs: Manufactures, retailers, and hospitality business continue to lower requirements. The labor market is so shell-shocked that many are getting second and third chances to come back to their former employers after leaving them. The employee now has the ability to show up as they choose. The current economy will be lifted by those able to be creative in their problem solving: Finding Solutions to Retention.

Semi-Conductor Shortage: Growth in demand has stemmed a semi-conductor shortage. The supply remained consistent, however, due to a growth in use by technological advancement. Advanced technology has made the demand for more sophisticated chips rise; a rise that the semiconductor’s producers are doing their best to fulfill. The cost of equipment for FABs (Fabrication factories) has increased. Used equipment from 1995 – Lithography – has increased in price from $100k to $1.7 million: 2014 to 2021 – respectively. The cost and planning for a new FAB presents a new problem; for now, prioritization and promises are driving the semi-conductor chip market.

Infrastructure: The Goal Is to Increase economic growth by 1.9% per year. Current economist believe infrastructure done properly will allow for an overall gain to productivity and output, by the entire country. Some stand out points that I realized: Internet to un-serviced areas, larger array of EV chargers, and up to an increase of 560,000 jobs: The goal is to reduce unemployment and start to pull the economy into a new level of development.

11.4.21: Ready Player One, The Smoking Gun, and What the Meme!

The Rise and Fall: Meme stocks; after doubling overnight Avis drops by 16.54%, large bets were placed. Buyers and Sellers: Predicted the stock would drop back to the previous weeks value or double to reach nearly $600. Avis stock is being fueled by the Meme Stock Market: A company that gains a cult like following through social media and online presence.

NY – Concealed Carry: Both Sides Must be Heard. Supreme court judges are continuing to field information; the perspectives of those that live and breath the NY lifestyle, specific places still remain in question. Should those be allowed to bring arms to sporting events and on the transit system? One side states that the omnipresence of the police are enough; however, other sides show that criminals will still have guns and the right to protect oneself may win out.

The Meme Train continues: Bed Bath and Beyond climbed 15.22% on 11.3.21 (Wednesday); Bed bath and Beyond has purchased back $400 million of their own shares, with the ultimate goal of owning 1 billion in the near future. Bed Bath and Beyond has partnered with Kroger, driving a larger number of consumers that rely on convenience (The book of Danny). The Meme market continues to be driven by the short seller: Those that borrow stock (leverage – Think Debt) to sell high, in anticipation the stock will fall: Which allows them to buy back at a lower price, returning the shares and close out the account with a profit.

Meta Goes Dark: Messaging for Facebook, Instagram, WhatsApp crashed for nearly six hours on 11.3.21; Meta is the new umbrella company previously known as Facebook. The Company continues to transition to the future, repositioning itself as more then just social media. Facebook continues to plan, hire, and seek individuals to help create the Metaverse: Intentions to bring internet and reality to a whole new world. More to come on the future of reality.

Las Vegas Stripe: MGM hands off The Mirage; shifting focus to sports betting, international casinos (Japan), and other shifting opportunities. Las Vegas Stripe rearranges itself after the impact brought and the impact that lasts – How can we better prepare ourselves: The Book of Danny; Covid has opened the world to new possibilities that didn’t exist before. Companies are re-strategizing and thinking through what actually is moving their mission and vision forward. The process of eliminating what you don’t need, to help find what will work, continues to be an ongoing struggle for companies and the people of the world.

Have a wonderful morning, Thank you everyone for reading!
