Market Talk February 17, 2020
January retail sales matched estimates, rising 0.3%. and showing us the U.S. consumer is solid.
As this table shows, based on seasonally adjusted levels, we are seeing a steady uptick in retail sales and retail sales excluding autos both month-over-month and year-over-year.
As Bloomberg framed it, it’s “steady demand at retailers indicates consumers remain the economy’s key fuel source and resilient hiring and wage growth are helping to boost both sentiment and spending. Economists forecast household outlays to increase in the first quarter at about the same pace as the end of 2019.” 
For the week of February 17, there will be six major releases.
- On Tuesday, February 18, Empire Manufacturing for February will post at 8:30 am.
- On Wednesday, January housing starts and PPI month-over-month for January will both post at 8:30 am.
- On Thursday, the January leading index reading will post at 10 am.
- On Friday, February’s preliminary U.S. market manufacturing release and January’s existing home sales will post at 9:45 am and 10 am, respectively.
3D Printing Market is On a Tear
The 3D printing market is projected to be value at $50 by 2025.
A new breakthrough discovery by scientists at Switzerland’s EPFL have found a way to 3D print whole objects in mere seconds, according to Engadget. 
When we think of 3D printing, we imagine structures being built one layer at a time.
However, the EPFL scientists have developed a method that “draws on principal tomography of the technique of displaying representations of cross sections through a solid object using x-rays or ultrasound.”
To make an object a photo-sensitive resin it is illuminated from multiple angles with the accumulation of light helping solidify the resin.
In other words, the object forms a solid structure within the resin in just one go, rather than segment by segment which is the case with traditional 3D printing.
This discovery is incredible; it’s groundbreaking.
America 2.0 Update
Another recent Gallup poll revealed 61% of Americans say they are better off than they were three years ago, a higher percentage than prior election years when an incumbent president was running. 
In 1992, 1996 and 2004 election cycles, exactly half said they were better off.
In three separate measures, during the 2012 election cycles an average of 45% said they were better off.
Relatedly, 52% of U.S. adults say it’s easier for them to go and buy things in the stores than three years ago.
Higher than 1992, 1996 and 2004 election cycles when figures were closer to around 40%.
Next, a newly released report from First American Financial Services, a title insurance company, shows that U.S. housing will likely withstand future recessions.
The report predicts that “when the next recession comes, and predictions are that this will not happen any time soon, the U.S. housing market is unlikely to take much of a hit.”
The report calls data from the National Association of Realtors and Freddie Mac to show how the housing market has fared during most economic downturn cycles.
In many cases, home prices showed an appreciation and the appreciation continued at an even pace. I think this is great news overall, especially because of our America 2.0.
A Rising Tide Lifts All Boats
At a certain level, economic growth has a distributive impact; lifting the incomes of so many people.
And when people earn more, they can afford things and live more comfortably.
That’s what we’re seeing and that’s what these polls represent.
That’s very much a part of what we have been telling people for several years.
The housing market is solid and there’s a reason for that.
The millennial generation is now coming into its own. T
hey have money. They have their own preferences and choices. They are remaking America.
There is a housing boom in the South and the Midwest as people are exiting the more expensive markets on the coast.
That’s very much part of the America 2.0 revolution and the Fourth Industrial Revolution.
Manufacturing is still at the heart of America, and manufacturing is modernizing.
As more jobs start to come back from China and we begin switching to cheaper manufacturing alternatives like 3D printing and robotics, we shift more into America 2.0.
This is the Fourth Industrial Revolution. This is America 2.0.
It’s not something that’s going to happen, it’s happening now in front of you.
And it’s about to change everything.
Imagine being in Steve Wozniak’s garage, watching him and Steve Jobs create the first Apple computer.
Or seeing Bill Gates create his first piece of software with Paul Allen, when they were young students.
That’s where we are now.
Extreme Fortunes is one of our services that focuses on young companies — it’s like getting in on Microsoft or Apple very early on.
We invest in small-cap companies, companies under $3 billion.
We already have phenomenal winners in there.
We’ve closed out winners like Foundation Medicine in excess of 500%.
We had 400% on a biotech company called ArQule.
We have open gains of 300%, 400% and multiple-percent winners.
That’s because this is perhaps the best period in the markets for innovation-based companies.
People want new solutions, people want new ways of doing things, people want the Fourth Industrial Revolution.
Last week we got a beautiful email from a kid in Arkansas. I love what he wrote. Here it is.
You know what, Jack, so are we. If you want to get in on some of the companies that will be making America 2.0 click here. That will take you to a page that will give you all the details to get in on our Extreme Fortunes service.
I’m still bullish, still optimistic, still positive. #BOP.
