@theMarket: Markets Snap Out of Their Downtrend
By Bill Schmick,
03:09PM / Friday, October 15, 2021
It appears that we have established a range in the stock market over the last few weeks. The bears have not seen their worst predictions come true. My hope is that we leave this month where we entered it.   September 2021 was treacherous. Bears were calling for a 10 percent correction at a minimum. Bulls, already on the back foot after witnessing a 5 percent pullback in the indexes, insisted we had seen the lows. Since then, we had been bouncing back and forth in a range. This week, however, appears to be a game changer.   We have not re-tested the lows on the S&P 500 Index, which we hit on Oct. 1, 2021, at 4,288 (intraday), nor have we come close to the highs made on

The Retired Investor: Barbie Gets Better With Age
By Bill Schmick,
04:23PM / Thursday, October 14, 2021
Despite this new age of video games, electronic toys, and diminishing attention spans, children are returning to a toy that is almost as old as me. Mattel's Barbie doll is back and at the top of many holiday shopping lists.   Some of the credit for Barbie's new-found popularity can be attributed to the pandemic. The lockdowns and the subsequent search for things to keep children occupied had mothers remembering their own fascination with all-things Barbie. Buying a Barbie, however (at least until recently), had parents wrestling with several negative stereotypes. Leading the list was the doll's image of a whites-only toy that ignored the realities of the melting pot we call

Mid-October to Feel More Like Summer
06:16PM / Tuesday, October 12, 2021
  After a frost scare a couple weeks ago, the weather this week will be more like summer than autumn.    Accuweather says some areas may break records for warm temperatures for October from a high pressure system building across New England.   "As a high pressure system begins to shift into a position just off the Eastern Seaboard on Friday, it will usher in some unusually warm air for mid-October," said AccuWeather Senior Meteorologist Carl Babinski.   Temperatures will range 10 to 20 degrees above normal but a cold front and wet weather arriving this weekend will bring a more seasonable chill to the air.    The National Weather Service out of
