Whoa! What happened to Facebook? The stock lost just over twenty percent of its value in four days between July 25 and July 30. If you invested in the stock a few months after the IPO in 2012 you bought Facebook for $18 a share. And, if you had sold at the peak on July 25th, you would have gotten $217.50 a share for an eleven-fold, 1,100% profit. We all wish we had the foresight to spot every Facebook opportunity in order to buy and sell at the right times. But, successful investors live in the “now” and not in […]

How Do You Pick an Investment to Short?

The popular movie, The Big Short, dramatized how hedge fund manager Michael Burry made a profit of $2.69 billion by anticipating the collapse of the US housing market in 2007. Burry created a credit default swap market when he realized that the vast number of high risk subprime loans made the housing market unstable.

Are Amazon and Facebook in Trouble?

Our first thought in regard to how far high tech will fall is that the stocks are overpriced. And, passive investors are pouring money into index funds that do nothing but bid up the prices of the FANG darlings. The market has started to correct and, based on earnings reports, tech stocks will either continue to fade or will recover a bit. But, there are a couple of other issues that bear consideration in regard specifically to Amazon.com and Facebook.
