Will Tesla Stock Collapse Like a House of Cards?
Today’s rant by Dan Ferris is about you – you and your investments. Hardly anyone will tell you this, he says, but investing is personal – it’s an extension of who you are. And before you buy one stock, or bond, or share of a mutual fund, there are questions you need to know the answers of concerning… you. Most people shouldn’t want anything at all to do with the stock market, because of their own beliefs and preferences. And big banks and Wall Street don’t want you to know investing is so personal – they want you to think there’s a one-size fits all formula to it. It’s total B.S. – and as Dan will show you, you can no more outsource investing your capital than you can outsource someone to digest your food. Of course, people like Dan can point you to helpful insights and “news you can use.” We’ve got a bit of that this week, as Dan breaks down the news of Tesla’s $20,000 deposits on its new semi truck, Apple’s game-changing streaming service, and Lyft’s looming $2.1 billion IPO.
