Hey there, Bullets Fans –

Your Morning Bullets Brief Updates are here! And that means trivia is, too.

84 years ago today, the US made the very first (of many) payments for this social insurance program. Can you guess which one it is?

Think you know the answer? You can check it in the closing area down below!

Five things to know before the market opens

It’s Tuesday, and the deluge of tech earnings that has started will continue after the opening bell gets rung. The line up will start with Google’s parent company Alphabet and top Dow stock, Microsoft.

While investors are waiting, US stock futures have stayed flat since the Nasdaq closed yesterday at a new record for the first time since February. The S&P 500 also saw yesterday close at a new record.

The Dow, on the other hand, saw a modest fall, but is still less than 1% away from its April 16th record.

But earnings aren’t the only thing on investors’ minds today. The Fed is kicking off a two-day April policy meeting today. While the central bank isn’t expected to take any official action, it will be busy defending its willingness to let inflation run hot.

This is an important discussion since two popular commodities (corn and copper) have hit multiyear highs. Both corn and copper have almost doubled in the last 12 months alone.

So, what else are investors expecting to find out today?

Sick of the rich getting richer? Why not let this guy help you out?

Paul Mampilly is a Wall Street legend.
(Barron’s crowned his hedge fund as the “world’s best” and Kiplinger ranked it in the top 1%.)

But a few years ago, he left Wall Street.

“I just grew tired of helping the rich get richer,” Paul explains. “So I started sharing my No. 1 investment picks with Main Street Americans.”

And his No. 1 stock picks have been phenomenal.

In 2016, Paul’s No. 1 pick — Tableau Software — shot up 199%.

In 2017, Paul’s No. 1 pick — Foundation Medicine — shot up 524%.

In 2018, Paul’s No. 1 pick — Roku — shot up 393%.

In 2019, Paul’s No. 1 pick — MTech Acquisitions — shot up 332%.

But Paul believes his No. 1 stock pick for 2021 could go even higher.

When will Psaki ''circle back'' on this?

A story that wasn’t slated to break until August of this year broke early, and it’s certainly causing the Biden administration some discomfort.

Not to mention the sticky situation that John Kerry finds himself in. Iranian Foreign Minister Mohammad Javad Zarif offered some very candid answers about a number of things. But what has Kerry in the hot seat is the startling revelation that John Kerry told Iran that Israel (our top ally in the Middle East) was not only behind but responsible for hundreds of attacks on Iranian assets in Syria.

When asked about it yesterday, White House Press Secretary Jen Psaki refused to answer the question. “We’re not going to comment on leaked tapes,” Psaki responded.

In a separate press conference, a State Department official refused to answer the same question.

And now, there are growing calls for John Kerry to either resign or get fired from his post in the administration.

What do you think – did he actually say it? And if so, what’s going to happen next?
