Drop It Like It’s Hot

These Popular Investment Vehicles Could Crash Hard

RANCHO SANTANA, Nicaragua – Stocks sold off on Friday. The Dow fell 211 points.

Leading the retreat were tech stocks with the Nasdaq, where they tend to hang their hats, down more than 3%.

“Tech sector leads sharp sell-off,” said a Wall Street Journal headline.

Steps to the Moon

“Did you see what happened to professional social network company LinkedIn?” asked Exponential Tech Investor editor Jeff Brown, who was down here with us at Rancho Santana.

“It was a disaster. The company announced earnings, which were pretty much in line with what the market expected. But its forward guidance was down a little.

“Investors dropped it like a hot potato. The stock dropped by almost 50% – and investors lost about $11 billion – in 20 minutes of trading.”

Jeff is a believer in new technology: self-driving cars. Virtual reality goggles. Artificial intelligence.

“Computers are already smarter than PhDs,” he reported.

“In what discipline?” we wanted to know. “There are Cocker Spaniels that are smarter than PhDs in economics.”

“There is a huge difference between a regular company and a company that is on the cutting edge,” he went on.

“The difference is exponential. A regular company may grow 5% to 10% per year. A good tech company grows exponentially, at 100% a year or more.

“Just imagine that you are walking. You get somewhere by putting one foot in front of the other. If you are like a regular company, you grow… one step at a time.

“At a step a day, you’ve gone 30 paces in a month. But if you are able to walk exponentially – one step, then two steps, then four steps… in a month – you could have covered the distance from here to the moon.”

Many tech investments don’t go anywhere, Jeff admitted. But when you get it right, you get a moonshot.

That may be true. But it is also true that from time to time, investors feel they have gone too far. That seems to be the case now… with a broad sell-off in the entire tech sector.

Look Where No One Is Looking

There are “facts and dreams,” said Churchill. Many of those dreamy, techy satellites… launched into space in the Bubble Epoch… are beginning to fall to Earth. Look out below!

Also present here in Nicaragua is our old friend and super stock picker Chris Mayer. The occasion was the Family Wealth Forum, a meeting for our premium family wealth advisory, Bonner & Partners Family Office, in which we discuss both sides of the “family money” formula.

“There are two things you need in order to have family money,” we say gravely, “family and money.” Several people spoke to all the things that could go wrong in a family. Chris was speaking to what could go wrong with the money.

“Right now, hundreds of billions of dollars are being invested in the stock market by investors who don’t know anything about the companies they own.

“They buy exchange-traded funds [ETFs] – passively managed groups of stocks – that typically track the performance of a stock market index. These ETFs distort the market.

“Some well-known stocks are so heavily bought by ETFs that their prices are completely out of line with the real value of the company. And the ETFs are set up in such a way that there is no judgment at all involved.

“They are bought automatically, almost regardless of what is actually going on in the companies themselves.”

Chris believes that the opportunities for serious investors are increasing simply because there are so many unserious investors in the market.

ETFs favor the big companies in the big indexes, such as the S&P 500. That leaves the lesser known companies often unstudied and unbought.

“Even though stock prices are generally high,” said Chris, “there are many stocks that are actually cheap. You just have to look where the ETFs are not buying.”

Not Your Grandfather’s Investor

This was the second time in the last few days we had been alerted about the effect of ETFs.

Earlier in the week, my colleague David Stockman warned that a market sell-off would trigger a rout in ETFs… which would collapse the value of many overbought stocks… and potentially wipe out the leading market makers in the ETF sector – Vanguard, State Street, and Blackrock.

“Yes, ETFs add a new danger,” said Chris.

“The ETF buyer is not your grandfather’s stock market investor. He was drawn into the market by greed. He’ll be driven out by fear. And when he exits, the ETFs will be forced to sell stocks at any price.

“We could see some of the steepest crashes in history.”

How to protect yourself?

On high alert, we hereby take the “passively managed” fund concept to a whole new level.

We propose a new category of investment – a “passive aggressive” fund. It won’t do anything with your money. Just sit on it and sulk.

And maybe “forget” to take out the trash.

IM GOING TO FUCKING FLIP A GOD DAMN TABLE

I’ve been sick for the past three weeks. THREE WEEKS. First a stomach flu that made me constantly throw up. Then a horrific head cold that made me miss a WEEK of school. And then I had ANOTHER flu thing where I was literally bed ridden with a high fever for five days and I missed ANOTHER. GOD. DAMN. WEEK. OF. SCHOOL.

Today is Sunday and I was finally feeling a bit better! I could eat a little without feeling like there was a red hot rock dropped into my stomach. You have no idea how fucking happy I was.

It is now nearly 2am and I haven’t slept at all because my stomach hurts so fucking bad and I feel like I’m about to throw up everywhere and am possibly passing MY TENTH FUCKING KIDNEY STONE

DO YOU HAVE ANY IDEA HOW MUCH I HATE MY LIFE RIGHT NOW

IM IN SO MUCH PAIN
IM EXTREMELY ANXIOUS BC OF MISSING SO MUCH SCHOOL
AND IM SO FUCKING DEPRESSED

MY GENERAL ANXIETY AND CHRONIC DEPRESSION ARE GOING SO FAR INTO OVERDRIVE THAT I SERIOUSLY MIGHT JUST EXPLODE RIGHT NOW

AT LEAST IT WILL END MY SUFFERING

…I really need a hug…

EXCLUSIVE: Snoop Dogg Excited For Rams to Return to Los Angeles -- But Will He Still Root For the Steelers?

Snoop Dogg is stoked the NFL is returning to Los Angeles.

ET caught up with the “Drop It Like It’s Hot” rapper – and diehard Pittsburgh Steelers fan! – at the DIRECTV Super Saturday Night co-hosted by Mark Cuban’s AXS TV pre-Super Bowl 50 event in San Francisco, California, on Saturday, where he shared his thoughts on the soon-to-return Los Angeles Rams.

NEWS: Stars Welcome Rams Back to Los Angeles

“I love it. I mean, being from Long Beach, California, and an L.A. resident, living in Inglewood, we need this,” he revealed. “The market is so ripe and ready for it. We deserve a sports team and we finally got an NFL football team.”

Snoop’s so psyched, he’s already made plans to cheer them on during every game. Unless, of course, they’re playing his beloved Steelers.

“I’m going to get a box,” he shared. “I’m going to be up [there with] my homeboys. We’ll get it in.”

“Imma be there when they don’t play the Steelers. When the Steelers come in town you know what it is,” he explained. “Aint no choosing no side. I’m with the Steelers baby!”

NEWS: EXCLUSIVE: Coldplay ‘Excited’ But 'Nervous’ For Super Bowl 50 Halftime Performance

Unfortunately, Snoop’s team didn’t make it to the Super Bowl this year, but he’s still going to watch the big game between the Carolina Panthers and Denver Broncos airing Sunday on CBS at 6:30 p.m. ET/3:30 p.m. PT. His predictions?

“I don’t really have a favorite of who I want to win, I just want to see a great game,” he said. “I think it’s going to be a pretty interesting game. I think it’s somewhere between 28-24. I don’t know who is going to win, but I think 28-24 would be a good number.”

Like all of us at home, he’s also looking forward to seeing Beyoncé perform with Coldplay during the highly anticipated Pepsi Super Bowl 50 Halftime Show.

“Oh she hot,” he gushed. “She hot! She knows what she’s doing.”
