Where Do I Begin?

by | Feb 1, 2021 | Archives

Due to technical issues yesterday’s Livestream interview was switched to a 1.5 hour long conference call.  You can listen in to the recording of that call here.

How does one explain?  Who could have imagined?

This last  month, social networking has changed the investing world, may6be more than the pandemic.

Who could anticipate the rise in the share prices of Gamestops, AMC Corp and the like?  Why did it happen?

The root answer to this question is outlined in my newest report, “The Neapolitan Effect” which shows how to spot profits that jump from one opportunity to another by following similarities, contrasts and trends.

That report looks back 500 years to understand what’s happening in the world now and why.  The printing press is among the most important technologies that kicked off the industrial revolution.  Knowing this is really important, because communication is such an important part of progress (or lack thereof).

The report shares perhaps the most important social economic fact we can know at this time.

We are in a turbulent period now where social networking and internet communication has become a dominant force, but has not gained full dominance.

These two facts, about the printing press and social networking are vital because they have to do with the evolution of human communication.

Man’s ability to communicate so flexibly that we can cooperate with strangers is one of the most important reasons why we are at the top of the food chain.  That which helps us cooperate tends to increase our power.  That which disrupts cooperation reduces our power.

This last week, small investors cooperated to forever change Wall Street’s balance of power.

Increased human cooperation for the past 500 years has steadily enriched mankind’s material wealth as advances in technology led us upwards from one era of prosperity to the next.

Each era however has been subject to the law of diminishing returns so all these upward cycles rise in a bell shaped curve and then fall.

During the rise, almost all people earn more and as thyey become richer they tend to work less and even become lazy and unproductive.  Hard working generations also tend to produce less productive generations to follow. Those who inherit wealth usually don’t have the same attitudes and productive energy as those who worked to create it.

Over several generations the people in a prosperous cycle want more for doing less. Leaders who also come from the same background administer to these demands and borrow to provide the excess.

The process leads to a growing wealth gap because those who produce a lot of wealth are able to influence the hierarchy so it disproportionately benefits them. The wealthiest control commerce and the government and distort the system for their own benefit.

These distortions eventually lead such animosity, by the poor against the rich, that the society loses its ability to communicate and cooperate.   Poor cooperation reduces output and leads to overwhelming debt, to excessive printing of money and enough economic stress that political extremism (populism) of both the left and the right.  The left (socialists and communists)) want to redistribute wealth.  The right (capitalists and fascists) want to leave the wealth in the hands of the rich.

We are now in an era we call the Imagination Era and it’s bringing changes that reflect the importance of communication and may help resolve the many negative issues our global society faces.

Cooperation is one of mankind’s most powerful tools and last month a huge number of people who do not know each other shared non economic values though their computers in a cooperation that distorted and changed the economic norm.

One aspect of the imagination era is that values become as (or even more important than) the economic value.

Consumers  base many of their buying decisions on private internal values in this era.

We can see how this trend has developed in many ways.  Many businesses have already learned it is good business to give part of their profits to some type of charity, such as the ice cream company, Ben & Jerry, textile company Patagonia and automaker, Tesla.

Such companies form a new corporate culture each expressing their values through the way they do business. Such firms express a set of values which states how the firm’s convictions differ from the norm. Consumers who imagine these convictions are good will buy from these firms because they feel this firm has the ecologically correct or wholesome values that match how they (the consumer) feels.

This is how social networking has been able to convince a huge number of small investors to make economically foolish investments.  The value of beating up on big Wall Street based hedge funds was worth enough that the networked small investors were willing to take huge risks.

Have no doubt about it, if history is a guide, the backers of Gamestop and the other weak companies, may see some spectacular profits for the short term, but in the end, the system will clean their clock.

The Wall Street Journal article” “GameStop Mania Reveals Power Shift on Wall Street—and the Pros Are Reeling” explains what happened.

The article says: Internet-fueled amateurs, on platforms like Reddit and Discord, are piling into stocks, bragging about gains and banding together to intensify moves

The power dynamics are shifting on Wall Street. Individual investors are winning big—at least for now—and relishing it.

An eye-popping rally in shares of companies that were once left for dead including GameStop Corp. GME 67.87% , AMC Entertainment Holdings Inc. AMC 53.65% and BlackBerry Ltd. has upended the natural order between hedge-fund investors and those trying their hand at trading from their sofas. While the individuals are rejoicing at newfound riches, the pros are reeling from their losses.

Long-held strategies such as evaluating company fundamentals have gone out the window in favor of momentum. War has broken out between professionals losing billions and the individual investors jeering at them on social media. Meanwhile, the frenzy of activity is stirring regulatory and legal concerns, as well as the attention of the Biden administration. The White House press secretary said on Wednesday that its economic team, including Treasury Secretary Janet Yellen, is monitoring the situation.

The newbie investors are gathering on platforms such as Reddit, Discord, Facebook and Twitter. They are encouraging each other to pile into stocks, bragging about their gains and, at times, intentionally banding together to intensify losses among professional traders, who protest that social-media hordes are conspiring to move stock prices.

“I didn’t realize it was this cultlike,” said short seller Andrew Left of Citron Research, who has become a particular target of some investors on social media. “It’s just a get-rich-quick scheme.”

GameStop, AMC and BlackBerry have received hundreds of thousands of mentions across social media since early January and have vaulted into the ranks of the most traded stocks in the U.S. market.

The mammoth gains have forced money managers to dump bets that the stocks would fall, magnifying the rally. Bearish investors who took short positions have lost $23.6 billion this year through the close of trading Wednesday on GameStop alone, according to financial analytics company S3 Partners, including $14.3 billion on Wednesday when the stock price jumped 135%, its largest percentage increase in history, to a record $347.51.

Small investors are cooperating through social networking communication and are winning over some of the biggest investment firms.  One hedge fund that was short selling (Melvin Capital) lost billions, as 53% of their capital disappeared in a month, according to the Wall Street Journal.

The social networking amateurs ganged up on Melvin. “Only 47% left to go!!” one social networker posted over the weekend.

Expect more of this type trading this week, but DO NOT DO IT YOURSELF!

If you have been playing this game, take your profits and run.  If you have not…. don’t!

The value these investors are relying on bets against real economic value.  This is such a huge and sudden shift in power dynamics that it can be likened to the disadvantaged burning their town down around them.  A point is made, but at a huge price and a huge loss.

The establishment will react with force and already has started.  Many brokerage companies restricted purchases of GameStop and other hot stocks last week.  The social network systems are likely to respond next and we can expect the government, probably through either the SEC or FTC to also sanctioned this effort.

The shares that have seen their prices pumped were low and had short sellers hovering like vultures, because they were in decline for fundamental reasons.  Once the social networked pumping falters their price will again crash.

Most of us do not like vultures or short sellers, but they serve a valuable function and the power that creates their usefulness is one you should not reckon with.

Share trading will never be the same again.  Now that social networkers know what they can do, their threat will always be a force.  The system will impose limitations just as it has on program trading.  Congress will make noise and act like they really want to solve the problem.  Regulations will be created.  Investors will find ways around the regulations.

We are seeing events that we have never seen before, but rise above the noise. Take a historical view and you’ll see.  Nothing in the big picture has changed and this can help you, me and other thinking investors take advantage of the long term view.

CHAOS CREATES MANY OPPORTUNITIES FOR YOU

Cash in on the new normal.

If the pandemic taught us anything it’s that the so called “experts” really don’t have a clue how to solve this problem. We cannot rely on their information. Instead, we need to plan for and prepare for our own “new normal” if we want to survive.

The pandemic has not been the real problem.

The global response to this viral outbreak is just a symptom of a world that’s sliding into a devastation and disorder.  The worst turmoil is still to come because of economic, social and demographic tensions that have been building for 70 years.

With mounting government debt, globally, the current economic system that has run the global economy for decades, is in decline and disorder.

The current social economic archetype has already killed millions and destroyed the finances and lives of far more.   Worldwide, unemployment is at an all-time high.  Many businesses have been destroyed.

Governments are trying to solve the problem by throwing money on the fire and are they are being crushed in debt in the process.

Yet, the problem is just a beginning, because al that holding the system together is low interest rates and a lack of belief in inflation.

Yet inflation is here and with it will come higher interest rates that can crush stock markets and ruin the ability of governments everywhere to pay their debts.

To survive the coming economic downturns, you’ll need to learn the importance of adjusting how you live, work, invest and take care of yourself for the next ten to fifteen years!
You can’t rely on governments to bail you out.

Adapt!

That’s exactly what Merri and I have been doing for the last 50 years.

We have learned the power of being able to adapt to constantly changing markets all over the world and created a not-so small fortune while doing so.  That’s why we’re uniquely qualified to teach you how to not just survive but to PROSPER during the challenging times ahead. Chaos always creates many opportunities for those who know how to spot them and take advantage of them. A good example has been the mass exodus from urban areas to more rural areas.

Since many are working from home, they can live anywhere. There is a shortage of good housing in rural areas now. Merri and I are buying then rehabbing houses to full the gap.  We saw this opportunity coming and jumped in early.

We let readers know of the risks of a pandemic, back in 2016.

Many are already enjoying a safer more secure and financially stable lifestyle already despite the lockdowns and crumbling economy.

Instead of waiting for things to get better, start preparing for things to get worse, much worse.

You also need to learn how to spot opportunities which are all around you. As the economy changes, the opportunities will change too.

That’s why Merri and I keep a constant pulse on opportunities worldwide and report our findings to a special club of unique individuals that we started over 30 years ago. For decades, this club has been called the International Club, but this year we renamed it the Pruppie Club.

What is a Pruppie?

Pruppieism, the new economic and social realism.  Pruppies, like Yuppies, expect everything to expand. They take advantage of every new benefit and technology they can. Pruppies enjoy using the fruits of our ancestor’s deliberations and labors to earn in this advanced technological world.

Pruppies, also, like Preppers, engage in activity that they love that will sustain them when society and the incredibly intricate weave of our global economy and society let us down.

We need to be both, Yuppies and Preppers, Pruppies!

Take profit from the incredible new technology that gives us super powers to earn and grow wealth. Be safe and secure, when social economic tidal waves like plagues, stagflation fascism and communism overwhelm the world.

Pruppies are prepared in case everything, everywhere, or at least everything relating to their income and savings fails and the fabric that surrounds their lives disintegrates into an unknown veil.

Yet a Pruppie’s preparation is not a sacrifice, but a joy as you will see.

Learn how you can become a Pruppie.

GET READY!

Enormous, economic, social, political and productivity change was already in the process.  The pandemic however has accelerated and accentuated the process. You still have time to join the few who are left standing from the 2020 disaster.

You still have time to become one who will prosper during the 2020 decade. You can be one of a small elite group who will be able to help restore a healthy world order. The world will be very different from what we have known for the past seventy years, but when looked at in a framework of longer history… it’s the same old tale.

The last couple of millennia are filled with stories of empires rising and falling.  There are basic conditions in each of these tales.

  • First the idea of debt loses its real meaning and rising to levels that are unsustainable.
  • Interest rates charged for debt fall to extremely low levels so the idea of investing for a known amount stops making sense.
  • Central monetary authorities replace innovation and increased productivity as activators of the economy.
  • Disparity of wealth widens dramatically and the spread increases.
  • There is so much divisiveness in politics within countries that social and political conflicts spiral.

We’re seeing these changes rapidly happening now!

Fwd: gary-scott-tipis

I learned how to turn land into income producing property cheap and cashed in on the glamping craze a decade before the word was invented.  I want to share this trick with you.

Social and economic deterioration restricts safety, lifestyle, well-being and peace of mind. Social and economic shifts of this nature reduce the purchasing power of income.

Inflation, for example puts pensions and savings at risk. 

Growing deception allows manipulation of medical care, finances, the value of homes, how cars are bought, the price of gas, the education and raising of children, the food we buy and eat, the shows watched and the ways we work and play.

A very large and growing part of the public throughout the Western world no longer believes in the integrity of local or national government, law enforcement, health care, banking, pensions, legal systems, educational processes, media or church, just to name a few.

However, mistrust of anything authorities say has become so deeply rooted that even health assurances as serious as the pandemic have not been believed.

I invite you to join Merri and me in expecting the world to get better… to live and earn based on that expectation but…  to also prepare for bad times as well as good.  Just in case… the world goes sideways… we will still survive and prosper.

We do not give up anything much.  We can enjoy the good parts of the new economy, as we protect ourselves from what can be bad.

Let me be clear.  I expect that the world will get better, at least for the few who adapt and avoid the dangers that the changes from the COVID pandemic will bring.

The wealth of the world, albeit with inequality, will continue to grow.  This collapse of the global economy will bring an incredible new opportunity for those who know what to do.  These profit making avenues offer enormous income potential and even work well in disaster scenarios. Join the Pruppie Club so you can wake up every day knowing that you are prepared and in charge of your destiny.
