As American as F-150s and Cherry Pie
Ah, Presidents Day!
That day in our nation’s history when George Washington traditionally went out looking for the best deals on mattresses, cars and home appliances.
We all know about George’s preference for cherry trees, but did you know that he loaded up cut logs in the back of his F-150? Those old Ford Motor Co. (NYSE: F) trucks only maxed out at 4 horsepower, but man, they could still haul cherry trees like nobody’s business.
After George got home, Martha, his wife, would cook up cherry pies in her General Electric Co. (NYSE: GE) oven. It was wood-fired, back then, of course. Afterward, they’d both retire for the night in their brand-new Sealy Posturepedic bed. I hear the new memory-foam beds are miles better than the old straw one George slept on.
OK, stop that! That’s just silly!
You’re right. You’re right …. none of that actually happened.
Officially, Presidents Day is recognized by the U.S. government as Washington’s birthday. It’s a day to celebrate the founding member of the executive branch of our government. But it’s evolved into a day to celebrate all U.S. presidents — both great (ahem … William Howard Taft) and small (James Madison).
It’s not traditionally a day of big celebrations, but government offices are closed and so is the market … which is why I’m rambling at you today instead of talking about stocks, the Fed or the coronavirus.
But I know that Great Stuff readers like to stay on top of things. So, here are four important articles from BanyanHill.com that you might have missed last week:
- Profit From This Industry’s $659 Million 5G Makeover.
- Smart Diabetes Patch Breakthrough for Huge Biotech Gains.
- You Have 2 Huge Advantages Over Wall Street — Start Using Them!
- Double Your Money by Summer With This Hated Sector.
Finally, as we celebrate this Presidents Day, we’re reminded that the office is up for election this year. So, as we head into what’s sure to be a heartwarming and boundary-dissolving election year filled with cooperation and love…
Ha! OK, I couldn’t finish writing that with a straight face…
Whether you like President Trump (or not), there’s no denying that he’s had some contributions that padded your portfolio.
For instance, he recently issued an urgent memo that … wait, “What memo?” you ask?
You mean you haven’t heard of Trump Presidential Memorandum O-2518?
This particular memo is a massive gift to investors. Previous Trump memos (that also passed under the radar) helped to spark gains of 320%, 379% — even an exceptional 1,031%.
Now, you probably haven’t heard about it because the mainstream media haven’t said a word. Not a peep. Nada. Zilch was said about what this memo means for investors.
Great Stuff will be back tomorrow with your irregularly scheduled programming … after we’ve all slept on our new beds. (I’m hoping for a deal on one of those beds that automatically adjusts firmness and reclines. I’ll never leave bed again.)
Until next time, good trading!
