You Still Don’t Get it, Do You, Cathie?
While his handlers and spin doctors tell him to lick ice cream and pose on his bicycle, just like they told the violinists to keep playing on the Titanic, anyone with a real brain knows this ship is sinking.
This week, a social media company named Snap reported earnings. At its peak, on September 24th, 2021, just over a year ago, shares of the company traded for $83. Today, the price is $7.76/share, a wipeout of over 93%.
This is not a standalone case, and it exemplifies how delusionary investors were in the past two years, willing to pay nearly anything for a company just because it was growing.

It appears like the markets are now truly realizing what we’ve been saying since February: we are NOT going to see a real pivot, only a pause.
The opinion is slowly becoming more and more of a consensus that rates are heading toward 5% and will remain high for years, which is a total revolution for many businesses that were only in existence thanks to easy-credit policies.
