Q 4 2017 Newsletter

International Market Analysis

In a quest for value, it may be appearing overseas with our friends across the pond. Our core article of the newsletter discusses P/E Price Earnings along with the more smoothed CAPE or cyclically adjusted price earnings which is just a 10 year average ratio. With multiple looks at a long awaited possible long term positive trend, the next 3-5 years may be in the corner of  our overseas friends.

Tripit our App of the Quarter

After stumbling upon a neat app from a dear friend, “Tripit” makes our app of the quarter. Bet you have no idea just how many different reward programs you are involved … after loading them into our app of the quarter, your life will be easier.  Constant price reviews after the purchase along with multiple handy reminders may make this a fun – non financial review and item for you to try out this quarter.

Equifax Update and To Do’s

Our most popular posts on street-cents.com our blog, was the discussion of the Equifax breach. Our theme “Chillax” if our information had not been comprised before, it will eventually. The best defense in this case is an offensive preparation, BEFORE the next breach.

Break In: Yahoo announce after our discussion much more information had been compromised than originally thought …

Not IF, but WHEN our information is compromised …

1 Minute Video Reviews and Screen Shots

With tons of fun and compliments, our half dozen set of 1 minute video’s also make the Newsletter. If you like to talk like I do, full appreciation for just how hard it is to make a 1 Minute video… haha

Parting Thoughts

Shhhh, we have a secret that we want to tell, but are forbidden for a couple of more weeks. We will only say it is an honor!

Watch for a reminder of our hopefully awesome Saturday Before Thanksgiving-Early November 18 Holiday Party at the Dallas Arboretum from 1-3 pm and free reign of the park until 5! Fun times !!!

Thanks for the time!

Sneak Peek at App of the Quarter in the Coming Q 3 2017 Newsletter

Its hard for us to hold off on surprises…

It’s hard for us to hold off on fun articles too…

With lot’s more details coming in the next Newsletter….

Surprise! Here is a preview of the App of the Quarter.

App of the Quarter20170604_161221000_iOS

This quarter’s App is more of a device and a new way to track yourself as we review the Fitbit and it’s changes on our behavior.

Step Tracker

Mostly known as  a step tracker, we argue there is more to these devices than just a fancy step tracker, although they do a great job of monitoring your daily activities via your motion or steps.

Also lots of fun for friend and family challenges…cheating accusations will occur, especially from smaller frames to larger ones.

Heart Monitor

With a family of high blood pressure, the heart monitor was very intriguing…. you may not beat as often as you think, leading to possibly better blood pressure than monitored while under the pressure of your regular doctor or just before the knife of your friendly dentist.

Sleepy? Maybe you are not sleeping enough?20170606_193726000_iOS

One of the biggest surprise is just how little sleep you may be getting, unknowingly. Take pride it getting 8 hours of sleep, just as the Dr. ordered? Bet you are not getting as much as you think you are. Yes these devices also monitor our sleeping.

Look for more in the coming Newsletter as this is just a taste to wet your self monitoring appetite!

Have a Great Day!

App of the Quarter, early release

Click, click, click….. and a spinning wheel look familiar …..

“What is the blank of blank … quick I am on a timer?”

We wanted to wait until the coming Newsletter, but could not keep it under wrap …. you might find it fun to play during summer travels or vacation time.

  • Challenge your friends
  • Challenge your family members
  • Just challenge yourself- fun to remember how much we may have forgotten
  • IOS and Google App as well as regular web- cell app is most fun
  • Broaden your knowledge- Sports, history, entertainment …. just to name a few
  • Learn something new when you otherwise might be idle
  • Play as little or as much as you want

We use the free version which peppers you with delayed adds if you answer incorrectly. Definitely an incentive to answer correct.

If you liked trivial pursuit, this is for you.

Go ahead, give it a try!

Have a Great Day!
