Thoughts on Market Activity

Really nothing new to report here. There is a still a debate on whether or not the spike is transitory or not. I don’t know. That’s it. Most commodities have rolled over to some degree, except oil and nat gas which have been strong. It will be interesting to see how long or to what degree we reopen if there is still 25-30% of adults with vaccine hesitancy.

Looking at my portfolio at the moment… I am looking to reduce the amount of companies I hold. I have too many small positions that are somewhat distracting given how much they will move the needle.

What I’m Reading

Deep Work by Cal Newport

I really enjoyed this book and have been trying a few suggestions from the book. I have been scheduling my day in 30 min blocks that consist of either shallow and deep work. I have also removed much of my presence from social media. At least, I don’t check my Twitter timeline, but I will continue to utilize and check my DMs. I’ll give it a try for a month or so and see how it goes.

I also like to read books on parenting and relationships. Message me if you’re interested.
