It’s the end of summer and the long sunny days are quickly dwindling away. As we enter September, children are getting ready to go back to school and many adults are getting ready to go back to work. Life has changed in the last 6 months and now we await to see if the original projections of a second wave are going to come to fruition.
Had the pleasure of being interviewed by Kenneth Russell and Mark Fairbairn from StockBox Media.
Believe it or not, summer is almost over and there is only 1 month left before Canadian children all go back to school full time. In the US, the majority of the schools are also expected to open full time in September. While COVID-19 lingers into 2021, unless something catastrophic happens, you can expect children back in school and some parents who are able to return to work to do so as well. Given 19 million+ cases and 6 million+ currently infected, it was a tough call, but one the governments have made to try and reopen economies.
Congratulations! We are officially halfway through the longest year ever, we should all get two birthdays this year for everything we have been through. This year has quite the roller coaster but more than ever before it has been a year of change, years from now we may be telling our kids of year’s pre-2020 and post-2020. As an extension of this, the investment market is also reacting and companies that fit the mold of the future are prospering and companies of pre-2020 are falling behind.
The weather is heating up and so is the market. The NASDAQ moved back into positive territory on the year while the rest of the major indices remain slightly lower. This shows the separation between the technology that now keeps us connected and the older in-person methods that we used pre-pandemic. This is what many have come to call the “New Normal”, a phrase that has taken on many meanings.
