My videos typically are streams of consciousness. And especially when I give thoughts on current events, the info and views can be outdated very quickly. Any thoughts, projections, and info shared are of personal opinion at the time of publishing the video, and should not be taken as financial advice. Please do your own research and due diligence, and most importantly make your own decisions.
1. Viewing risk
I typically prefer a long-term perspective that allows me to focus on the business prospects of a company. This allows me to analyze growth, revenue, margins, profits and to give a multiple on the company.
Stock ticker is more a reflection of current sentiment toward that company’s valuation and can fluctuate greatly.
Macroeconomic concerns can also weigh on how investors think about the markets and stocks.
There’s always risk. Some risk is apparent like execution risk or competition.
However, some other risk is not visible. They can be unexpected like a pandemic or a catastrophic event.
It’s difficult for most people to hold these two things in one hand: optimism for the future and sober view of risk.
Oftentimes things that are true are not one-sided, but rather have a deeper complexity.
I give a snapshot view on my thoughts on the Coronavirus with a warning that my thoughts will be outdated in a matter of days. This is only to show how I’m processing today’s events and assessing risk.
The probabilities that the Coronavirus will expand is increasing.
Probabilities are tough to assess because things are always changing and there’s so much unknown.
3. Levered hedge funds
This past week Warren Buffett talked about how interest rates are so low and how that is encouraging borrowing and the use of leverage in investments by various people.
Chamath Palihapitiya was also on CNBC this week talking about the use of leverage with hedge funds and how this could cause a “force” exiting of sorts if the stock market declines further.
