INVESTOR INSIGHTS – Market Update
Yesterday’s jobs report may have missed projections – but it a tailspin.
With conservative gains across the board, markets have relaxed. The mediocre numbers weren’t the death knell many predicted. But they have dimmed the potential for significant interest drops from the Fed.
So, what did we learn?
Private payrolls grew by 114,000. Predicted? 122,000.
Total non-farm payrolls grew to 136,000.
Annual wage gains increased 2.9% – the weakest number in over a year.
Jobless rate dropped to 3.5% – the lowest in 50 years.
Previous report revisions added an additional 45,000 for the last two months.
The U-6 under-employment rate slipped to 6.9% – the lowest since 2000.
According to Trump, “There’s a lot of good data out there, and there’s some soft data.”

YOUR SILICON VALLEY (LIBERAL) OVERLORDS
It started as a test the new Face Unlock feature of the Pixel 4.
The intention? To prevent bias against people of color.
But Google’s “field research” program just had the plug pulled.
The contractors targeted homeless people in Atlanta. Unwitting college students, too.
The reward? A $5 gift certificate in exchange for a face scan.
Even Google called it “very disturbing.”
Atlanta attorney Nina Hickson was the first to sound the alarm.
In an email to Google, she didn’t mince words. “The possibility that members of our most vulnerable populations are being exploited to advance your company’s commercial interest is profoundly alarming for numerous reasons.”
Google killed the contract. But they haven’t responded or commented on the record.

TRUMP DERANGEMENT SYNDROME
Let’s be honest, the impeachment push began back in November of 2016.
Once the election results were in, TDS sufferers were up in arms.
Since then, they’ve tossed every bit of dirt and dung at the President. They pray that something will stick.
So far, it’s been a miserable failure. All hype, little substance.
But there’s a silver lining on the cloud of insanity.
Filth flingers wind up covered in their own mess.
If you want to know what Democrats are up to, focus on what they accuse everyone else of.
Pelosi and Schiff continue to lose credibility. They’re on a mission to subvert the will of the American people.

It’s clear that young black supporters are putting more faith in facts than Fake News.
Friday, there was a “mini-rally” in the White House. Nearly 300 African American supporters “broke the sound barrier” with chants of “USA!” and “Four more years!”
It’s the second time in a month that Trump has reached out to strong black audiences.
It was a day of both broad and personal appeals.
Many are fed up with the empty promises Democrats have made. After 100 years of fluff, black Americans feel let down.
Stronger employment and economic numbers make it easy to see the strides Trump’s policies are making. And it’s only taken him the last 3 years.
“No one in America has been hurt more as a result of the Democrats’ corrupt leadership and socialist policies than our nation’s African American community.”

CRAZY-INTERESTING OR RIDICULOUSLY-WEIRD
Parents have resorted to a bizarre remedy.
And, of course, it all starts with a “Florida Man.”
Wrinkles the Clown is up for hire to terrify your kids or prank your friends.
He’s even the star of a new documentary.
ADDITIONAL READING AND RESOURCES (ARR)
I can’t get into all the news and interesting information out there in this one email, so what you’ll find here are articles, presentations, and resources I’m digging into and believe you should as well.
Five hundred miles outside of Silicon Valley…
This tiny company — trading under a code name — is about to unleash a radical, new $12 trillion technology.
Mark my words…
Fortunes will be made.
BlackRock, JPMorgan Chase and Deutsche Bank — to name just a few — have all started quietly scooping up shares.
Because they recognize the extraordinary potential here, as I do.
This stock may never be this cheap again. Now is the perfect time to grab as many shares as possible.
Your biggest fan,
P.S. We’d love your opinion.
