With inflation fears mounting, stocks are proving interesting this week aren't they just?
Specifically those stocks that did well last year, the high beta, bags of potential ones.
Here are a few examples: Editas, Skillz, Nano-X, the SPACs, QuantumScape and even Teladoc.
I feel a Norwegian-commentator-in-a-1980s-England-match rant coming on: "Cathie Wood, as they say in your language in the boxing bars round Madison Square Garden in New York: your boys took a hell of a beating!"
(As anyone who owns these stocks will attest, this is not a good thing.)
Who knows what will happen next? Are these inflation fears unfounded, a blip? Or will prices rise and keep spooking the stock market and we see share prices fall as the economy returns to health, just as they rose last year in the depths of recession?
Even the great "inflationary hedge" crypto's joining in as I write, on the back of Elon's latest volte-face pronouncement.
After an inexorable market rise like no other I've witnessed, it sure is felling more volatile out there.
In other news, you may or may not that noticed that, as advised, this newsletter took a break last week.
(I have an important six-week-project-then-a-holiday to complete so this may or may not continue for the next four/eight issues.)
The good news is that, as a result, this week's issue is bumper.
I have to say, having just been through the whole lot of reading material I've read this past fourteen days to fillet it for this edition, we are living in super-exciting times. Such developments, such breadth of cracking writers.
Anyway, without further ado, on with the links. I do hope you enjoy them.
