What's wrong with Elon Musk owning Twitter?
Bro.......
The dude who wanted to swat a whistleblower now owns one of the most powerfull social media platforms thats wrong.
And many other things like him doing multiple acts of securities fraud on that very platform.

Well, it's not ideal or anything but I don't see him owning it make it a different experience somehow.

I'm still waiting for his ideas on how to remove spam bots etc. I'm completely in favor of verifying all users and maybe shadowbanning or highlighting users that aren't verified and definitely removing all the [crypto] bots.

At least your Tesla shorts are looking better now :D

could not agree more. my mrs works for the law firm where Elon demanded one of the employees gets fired for working at the SEC. Guy is a piece of shit.

Also this guy's firm whole profit come from Shanghai, now good luck trying to trust someone who depends on china to protect free spech.

But yes fuck twitter management, fucking useless pieces of shit, has best public square platform and have done diddly dick for 10 years

few thoughts:

- Is it too early to go long bonds? I am very tempted to get in some these 10 year bonds.

- I sold RSG at 60% gain, unhedged gbp/usd buy in february 2021. I can't understand how people are bearish economy, yet waste companies are booming. These things did not do well during the great recession at all. Trading at very high multiples.

- Some tech has gotten historically cheap and I will dip my nuts in it. I had to do some research on start ups, and private markets are still very much FUCKING NUTS. No idea how it was before but was genuinely shocked at some of the valuations.

First of thanks for not making me look like a mad man with my elon hate.

Was just looking at bonds yesterday and saw a couple of tempting options but i still think they have some more room to move. Might not be a bad point to start a position but i would not go in to deep just yet.

Yap some big tech names look attractive here as always goog tempts me a lot , so does FB and MSFT in Fb i already have to big an exposure to double down though. Will probably add some goog and MSFT over the next days, but imho for them the same as for bonds is true there still is some pain to come for overall markets not sure the big tech guys can come out unscared so you might get better bargains down the line.

Man Startup valuations have been straight up bonkers for some years now, thought the markets learned its lessons with Wework but nope the party just keeps on going. That being said it has been pretty easy for VCs to unload those vastly overvalued company on the public markets so why should they care. I mean the VCs made a ton of money on a ton of shit cos that went public at crayze valuations just to implode within the first trading year. Meanwhile a special breed of idiots was running around screaming how IPOs are under valued cause these hype companies usually popped up during lockup period just to give back all gains and close under IPO price a year later. To top it all off Spacs and Crypto gave VCs a pretty easy way to unload their investments onto public markets at a profit no matter how shitty the company is.
Look at A16z cashing out of literal crypto ponzis making a huge profit on them and not getting any scrutiny.

Also a big part of the reason why i think we still have some pretty big downside even if markets already lost a lot YTD. But yu usually dont see such valuations no matter in what markets while at a bottom.

All that being said theres gonna be a bonkers day when china lifts its covid restrictions again, especially in metall and energy prices.

It sucks everything is going to tank soon

The stock and housing markets. Hording cash is just burning 7% of your money…..

The whole buy collectibles thing is kind of silly too since they aren’t very liquid. If you need money and want to sell its whatever anyone will give you.

Had a guy who sold me 50k worth of comics for 18k. He needed the money and didn’t want to eBay it. I say 50k because I actually sold it and got $50k :)

But who just has 18k in cash to give someone

He called a nonce one of the people that were saving those children in the cave in Thailand. That's so weird.

The bigger picture is that Elon owning and making twitter go private is better than whatever the fuck twitter is now. Has anyone used it these past few years? Because I haven't but decided to browse it the other day when he bought it. It's easily the worst social media platform and the people crying that he used his money to buy twitter instead of donating it to the poor are the perfect example of that. The echo chamber that their policies created is toxic and not good for a society that heavily leans on social media usage.

Also anyone with pronouns in their bio should be axed.

Again you have no idea who elon musk is and what he has done to people who critizized him in the past...
Thinking he ll change twitter for the better is delusional....
He ll make it better for right and left wing nuts as they now can spew what ever bs they want, he ll also make it better for crypto shills, and ofcourse he ll make it better for his buddies who ll be allowed to say and do anything.
Again the dude swated an whistleblower called critics bosses to get em fired. Constantly goes against Newsoutlets that report negative things about his companies, called one of the thai cave rescue divers a pedo guy just cause he told him how fucken stupid his min sub idea was...
Every single employe of his signs a very strict NDA way beyond what is usual for tech companies and the drivers in his fucken Vegas boring tunnel get an exact script of what they re allowed to say and what not.
I could go on for a long time with shit like this.

But ofcourse all mighty elon will bring twitter back and make it a paradise for free speech...

Btw how the FT pointed out he basically got a 1bio call option on twitter atm, will still see if he uses it (once again showing just how bad twitter mgm is).

In other news man am i glad fucken bill hwang is gettig what he deserved was thinking this dude gets to walk free....

TDOC getting fucken raped hilarious how everything in connection with ARK and cathie is getting absolutely destroyed, take out tesla out of her funds and most of her positions are way underwater. Hurr durr we see a 50% annual return from here on out..... How i hate these charlatans. She d need to be closer to 80% if she wants to reach her 5 year goal from here on out.

FB earnings release yesterday and i m a bit confused.. Imho earning were worse then i expected but apparently the street was thinking it s close to becoming a zombie so even an okaish Q lead to 18% upside in pre markets.
1% miss on rev and 8% beat on EPS... Revs only up 7% while costs increased 31%......
Have not taken a detailed look yet though.

Also beside the previous mentioned tech giants that start to look attractive DIS is also looking tempting here.

Recession inbound. Or maybe not. Interesting times, but unfortunately got too much skin in the game to get excited :lol:

I have a lot of skin in the game but honestly I’ve been flipping houses all during Covid with my Dad and one of my brothers in law.

Now with the housing market about to tank that little hustle will soon be gone.

Just no good place to put your cash right now

The likes of Amazon FB and apple just pretty much confirmed this.....
Not in these exact words but listening to their Q1 s and going through their filings thats pretty much the gist of it.

rates at 0.25, inflation spiralling, q1 GDP declined.. the amazing Fed.

very surprising capex numbers from oil majors..

don't look now but this alone could turn into a starbucks like story
'Coffee grew 27%, primarily driven by cycling the impact of Costa retail store closures in the United Kingdom in the prior year and continued expansion of Costa coffee across markets.'

I want to know who tf fuels these fucking +4% intraday moves and what fucking morons buy on top of that.

Aside from arkk. Buying the dip worked for far too long.
