Hey! It’s been a while because I’ve been taking some holidays and I’ve been really busy with a program I’m making, about investing for beginners, in Dutch. It’s pretty much finished now! 104 videos in total, about 6 hours of content. I’m happy with the result, but I’ll always be improving it based on new things I learn and feedback I receive.
From tomorrow onwards I’ll go back to my regular schedule of uploading 3 videos per week. At the same time, during August I’ll be focusing on the marketing strategy for the program. I’ll likely start executing that strategy in September. The months after that will be pretty important I believe. Very exciting to be working on this!
Just wanted to share one thing with you: NFTs. I still know very little about this entirely new world, but it’s an exciting world. I think it’s a great bridge between the real world and the crypto world. NFTs will be like the museums of the...
I often receive comments on my YouTube videos that go something like this: “Hey Nesami! I’m a long-term investor and I want to HODL X stock, so I bought some shares a few weeks ago, but now X stock is down 20%! What should I do?” While I definitely understand that it can be painful to see your portfolio going down a lot in just a few weeks or months, questions like this one sometimes are confusing.
If you’re a long-term investor, you do exactly that: you invest for the long term. But for some reason, people worry about short-term movements. It seems like they are result-oriented. This is something that beginning poker players also feel quite often. When they play a hand in a certain way and then lose the hand, they think it was a bad play. When they win the hand, they think it was a good play. Investors think investments were a mistake when their stock goes down the day after, or that it was the best decision of their life when it goes up 10% the day after.
Hi y’all! (I’m trying to copy Matthew McConaughey’s accent; it’s pretty funny)
Alright, alright, alright. Big week coming up for me and also for the stock market. We’ve got quite some important earnings calls this week from the big tech companies. Companies like Amazon, Google, Facebook and Tesla. Very random side note: did you know that Elon Musk is going to host Saturday Night Live on May 8th? That’s going to be fun to watch.
I’m especially looking forward to Tesla’s earnings call. As always I’ll be collecting my notes and sharing them with the Discord premium members. But it’ll be interesting to see if Tesla is really crushing it right now. The results of the earnings calls will likely be important for the stock market, or at least the tech part of it.
I’m also looking forward to seeing how the ChargePoint is going to play out in the shorter term. I recently created a video about the technical analysis side of...
I woke up to a pretty nasty crash in cryptocurrency land. Apparently the US Treasury was going to charge several financial institutions because they were laundering money using cryptocurrencies. Maybe not the best news. Bitcoin dropped a solid 15% in no time and altcoins were no exception. Personally I think it’s not an issue just yet.
The news hasn’t even been confirmed yet, and even if some institutions did get charged with money laundering, we don’t know what company and we don’t know how much money has been laundered. According to this article only 0.34% of all cryptocurrency was used for criminal activities in 2020, down from 2.1% in 2019. According to the United Nations, about 2% to 5% of the global GDP is connected with money laundering and illicit activity. So yeah.
I do think we will see more regulation in the crypto world though. Gary Gensler has been confirmed as the Chairman of the SEC and I believe he will lead the way. I know...
Well hello there! Hope you’re doing awesomely well on this cold and cloudy day.
First of all I’d like to encourage you to look for SPACs again. I think right now, because the market has come down quite a bit, basically all SPACs have sold off a lot. But now might be the time to look for the SPACs that are very undervalued or close to net asset value while they could definitely be worth a lot more. I personally for example like the SPAC GNPK, merging with Redwire. Noone really seems to talk about it, but it’s a space SPAC that already has pretty solid revenue and a low price-to-sales ratio. I think there are more SPACs like this one that could be nice opportunities. “Be greedy when others are fearful”, as Warren Buffet would say.
Also keep your eye on Coinbase this week. If you’re not into crypto but you would like some indirect exposure to crypto, this could be the ultimate play. Look for its market cap on IPO day. I believe they did 1.8 billion...
