Santa Claus gave bigger and bulkier gifts than usual last year while bestowing outsized gains to practically any index fund investors and adding extra window dressing to fund managers’ full-year financials.

After many months of waiting and a hack/“false alarm” from the SEC, 11 spot Bitcoin ETFs are now approved and the next wave of the crypto gold rush is in progress.

A.I. machine learning a colossal amount of anti-theft and cybersecurity data, then using it to breach security measures without a trace.

Current prices for Extra Virgin (EVOO) are roughly 17x as valuable as crude oil weight for weight and were 7x cheaper in 2019.
