The Scout Report: Economic opportunity in the dog days of summer

In the dog days of summer, the smart dog remembers that vacations encourage unwelcome market volatility.  Suppertimes are unpredictable as hot weather sends consumers out of the kitchen, creating a rippling event that translates into not only late dinnertimes but--more troubling--a lack of dropped portions, and, hence, pent-up demand among the normally quite risk-loving canine set.

Summer also brings unpredictability in softy opportunities as winter-softies become uncomfortably hot and floors prove to be cool, yet hard. One dog's hard floor, however, could be another's gold mine. Research indicates an unmet market need for Comfy-cool-softies with adjustable meat-shade structures. Research allows indicates that most dogs would settle for simply the adjustable meat-shade structures. Or even just meatballs.

Experienced investors should always remember that summer's biggest market concern is always overnight vacations. Dogwalkers, kennels, and/or gulags are poor substitutes for fine living, with or without adjustable meat-shade structures. Once people sleep outside the home, it is pretty much curtains  for softies, treats, well-established suppertimes, dropped foods, and tummy rubs. In fact, overnight vacations are the death-knell for all good things in the entire world. Regulations of overnight vacations should be strictly enforced as they are like the plague, only worse.  In fact, overnight vacations should be banned permanently until a way is found to bring canines on overnight vacations. Although, actually, canines actually just want to stay home, so overnight vacations
should, again, be banned. Permanently. For the good of the economy and the market and employment and also softies and dinnertimes.

Also, investment in bacon is highly recommended.

We never take vacations. We tried taking Boz with us once. He was miserable. We tried leaving him behind. He got sick.

He is so tied up in his routine that when my cousin visited, he absolutely freaked out.

Not a very good outlook, I'm afraid.
