Full of Employment….or Full of Something Else…
By: Dave Lavigne

U.S. unemployment figures were released on May 4, 2018 and they reflected a 3.9% unemployment rate.  Starting with October 2010, April was the 91st consecutive month of U.S. employment growth.  Moreover, April’s number represents a notable milestone (unemployment below the 4% threshold), which I believe is measurably below what we have typically assumed to be “full employment”.  Just to edify, “full employment” is that theoretical place that unemployment can fall to before it starts creating wages pressures.  Economists (in typical fashion) have their own esoteric term for that which they refer to as “non-accelerating inflation rate of unemployment,” NAIRU for short.  I will revisit that momentarily, but suffice it to say, Wall Street found those figures encouraging, as the DOW Jones Industrial average has climbed over 4% in the 10 days from the unemployment release to the date of this writing.  Perhaps that’s anecdotal (we have also had some robust earnings results in an around the releases), but I think at least some of the enthusiasm can be attributed to those numbers. Regardless, as illustrated below, the path of unemployment since the country’s emergence from the financial crises has been stark:                   Read Complete Article

 

Reg A update

What a Cryptocurrency Reg A ??  or not……….

While the world is gaga over the crypto currency craze a lot of investor $ are going up in smoke - reminding me a lot of dot-bomb days in 2000

Every time there is a new way to make money in the securities/financial services industry the first thing that happens is that a bunch of scam artists jump on board. No exception here.  Some old adages apply- “If it is too good to be true it probably is”, “A fool and his money are soon parted”. Bottom line is that if you don’t really-really understand what you’re doing and the risks involved, keep your money elsewhere..

Reg A is getting a bad rap here, but that is just a form of securities regulation- No reason to believe, as some are saying, that a Reg A offering is by definition a bad deal. There is no cause and effect here.

 

April 29-18 Seeking Alpha

Turns out, Reg A+ may be a spawning ground for cryptocurrency con artists.

The Wall Street Journal this month reported that the cryptocurrency company Longfin Corp. had its trading halted by the SEC, accusing the company and its CEO of securities fraud.

Longfin was slated to be one of the success stories of the cryptocurrency industry when it listed on NASDAQ in December under the JOBS Act Rules which made it easier for small companies to do IPOs.

“Shortly after Longfin began trading on NASDAQ and announced the acquisition of a purported cryptocurrency business, its stock price rose dramatically and its market capitalization exceeded $3 billion,” according to the Commission. “The SEC alleges that three executives then illegally sold large blocks of their restricted Longfin shares to the public while the stock price was highly elevated.” Read Complete article

 

May 4-18 Crowdfund Insider

Longfin Corp. has announced its intent to “voluntarily” delist from the NASDAQ. The move comes as an ongoing enforcement action by the Securities and Exchange Commission saw allegations of illegal distributions and sales of restricted shares.  Read Complete Article

My Money is staying on the crypto sideline for now…..

 

Elio Update

Elio is still sitting there at $3.40 when Overstock put there’s in at $2.50. Why is beyond me.

Now guess what- ELIO is in the cryptocurrency business. Give me a break….

 

April 30-18 Digital Trends

Only institutional accredited investors will be eligible to purchase the initial tokens. The tokens will be traded on an Overstock-owned platform named tZero, and investors will ultimately have the option of redeeming ElioCoins for a car, The Drive explained. Elio has consequently canceled plans to raise money through a $100 million IPO, according to Nasdaq.

There won’t be any ELIO so matter how many ELIO coins you have you’re not getting an ELIO in any case.  It can’t be built for anything like $7,500. That the bottom line and no amount of scheming will change that. Overstock dude will get a $2.5 million $ lesson in car building

Please- just say goodbye and be done with it
