Voluntary myopia?


Recommended Posts

Why would I purchase an equity knowing the dividend will be low or non existent in the expectation of fair value in 6 to 12 months time, but pay the expected price now? Confused? It would appear P/E ratios no longer apply in this new normal freakfest that are current global indices, most especially the S&P 500 and DOW, which are frankly so removed from current reality as to be in need of professional therapy. It is voluntary myopia, a refusal to see what is in front of you and only accept what you want to be, and that becomes your reality. In the sixties people with long hair used to take hallucinogenics for that sort of effect, now one just has to trade in equities. It would appear there absolutely is no global health crisis, which will vanish sooner than it appeared and everything is much the same as last year and all the bad news is already priced in.........?????!!!?

What with the Fed buying junk(Ok, BB) bonds by the billion I suppose we can all pretend, even if we are nowhere nearer finding an end to this than we were in Feb. Remdesivir is not a cure, it merely encourages recovery for those who would recover anyway, chloroquine  has disappeared off the radar of great white hopes and we are still Quarters away from a proven effective vaccine. True the world is wearily returning to work, but those who think Q3/4 will be a return to normal have comprehensively failed to understand the nature of this Virus and its economic effects. Take a walk around your local town and see for yourself. For the markets to assume there will be no second wave is also risk indeed (naturally only with clients money). The bond markets, it seems are more cautious and expect a slower return to normalcy. Equity traders , it would appear do not. To return to the first point, why buy a stock, some already close to all time highs, in the expectation of price increase in the indeterminate future when earnings will be commensurately lower? Sounds like Bull logic morphing into BS logic.  It would be Kafka-esque, but as it's 2020, it is more Trump-esque. 

Happy trading.

If you're the Fed and you're pumping the economy with cash, where are you going to spend it?  Buying stocks to keep rich people rich or spending it on infrastructure and development to help ordinary people into well-paid and secure jobs?

Wait, don't even answer that :D

    • Hey all, as some of you know, I've been reviewing quite a few new crypto projects lately and breaking down what they're about and the problems they aim to solve. Today, I'll be doing the same for a platform called HiveSwap. HiveSwap is a decentralized exchange operating specifically within the Bitcoin ecosystem. It utilizes the MAP Protocol to enable interoperability and facilitate seamless token swaps across Bitcoin's various layers - the base layer, layer 2 networks, and the MAP interoperability layer itself. A major selling point is HiveSwap's ability to bridge the gap and allow swaps between Bitcoin ecosystem assets and those from major EVM chains like Ethereum, BNB Chain, Polygon, and more. This cross-chain functionality is huge. The platform is also tackling liquidity issues for emerging asset classes like inscriptions and BTC-related tokens. HiveSwap provides a decentralized avenue for swapping these types of assets and creating liquidity pools, rather than being confined to centralized venues. With its robust underlying swap technology framework, HiveSwap ensures reliability and security for users contributing liquidity. It also incentivizes liquidity provision through liquidity mining rewards paid out in tokens. Overall, HiveSwap is positioning itself as the leading decentralized exchange within the Bitcoin realm. It's solving key interoperability challenges, bringing much-needed liquidity to newer assets, and leveraging proven tech for secure, trustless cross-chain/cross-layer swaps. HiveSwap is bridging multiple gaps in Bitcoin DeFi.
    • For those who love memecoins, there's an exciting new project called RUNES•X•BITCOIN that's worth checking out.    It's a meme coin developed using the Runes protocol on Bitcoin's blockchain. The "X" theme is a clever reference to Elon Musk and the idea of limitless possibilities.   But what makes it truly unique is that it's 100% decentralized and community-driven. The entire token supply was airdropped for free to anyone holding assets with the letter "X" in the name or ticker.   So if you had X domains, X NFTs, or BRC20 tokens containing X, you automatically received free RUNES•X•BITCOIN tokens. How's that for decentralized distribution?   The project has already exploded in popularity. Over 100,000 addresses now hold this Rune, making it the biggest one by that metric. And get this – the market cap skyrocketed from $2.1 million at launch to over $13 million! Insane growth. If you're looking to get involved, I heard Bitget has a series of events planned for this project, so you might want to check those out.   Some other key highlights: - The Rune code 110# seems to have a hidden meaning  - It utilizes cutting-edge Runes tech built on Bitcoin's UTXO model for fungible tokens - Fully decentralized, with no central control   RUNES•X•BITCOIN is bringing meme culture and community experience to Bitcoin in an innovative, decentralized way. While it might be considered a legitimateshitcoin, the concept and crazy early traction are certainly wild! It's definitely a project worth keeping tabs on in the BTC space.
    • I guess alot of people will be smiling rn having recieved their airdrop allocation some couple of hours ago. ANd with the pretrading price at $2, a lot of those farmers are anticipating huge cash out but let's see what the listing brings!
