You can tell a lot about a person, a company, when things aren’t going well. When everything is going well you should always take it in. As a person you should acknowledge why it’s going well and thank and be grateful for everything and everyone that has helped make it so good. As a business you need to set cash aside for a rainy day, to pay off debt, or to purchase assets that make you stronger, more competitive, and profitable. If you don’t do these things then the rainy days will be more rainy. There is a reason why the mantra is “sell into strength”. You may not see the top but you won’t have to see the bottom.
Many businesses are hurting with the recession and decline of the stock market and crypto. All things considered its really not been that bad. While there was a lot of hard times during COVID, statistically there was more disposable income during that time than any point in history. Homes and high end products reached levels we have never seen. There was only one place to go and anyone that didn’t see it wasn’t paying attention.
I think these next few years will be as good of an opportunity as any point in time if you play it right. I think vacations continue to be where people spend their money. Probably less on their homes and gardens. I think there is going to be a ton of inventory in the home repair and garden segment. People are going to be conflicted because sales are down so they are going to want more profit dollars but they are going to need to lower prices to get the sales. Will be interesting to see which way people head. I say its an opportunity because those that have the best cost are going to win. Those that have local production are going to win. Competitors will fall in the next few years and businesses that have high barriers to entry should do just fine. Even thrive because it won’t be a cost cut competition.
I think the next few years will be interesting. Some things have to give and we’ll see which ones do. I think domain sales will be much slower but I am fully confident that quality dot com continues to move. I think the economy will be fine. It’s just going to move money around. Plenty will be spent but it will be spent in other areas. The key is figuring out what areas they are going to be spent. My picks would be banks, travel, and solar. I do think falling gas prices will be a huge tailwind for the economy. Not financial advice. I am a lowly plant farmer
