When market narratives reverse

Often times a reason that is provided to take an investment action only applies if the market is moving a certain way. Should it not apply in an opposite manner when you flip the scenario around? Here are a few recent bull market narratives you have not been hearing in the current pullback.

Nowhere to hide

2018 was the year where investors had nowhere to hide. No matter where you were invested in the stock market, you likely had a tough year (and if you didn’t then give yourself a pat on the back): Geographically, sectoral, or even the ‘sure things’ like bitcoin and pot stocks are shadows of what they were just a year ago or at least in negative territory in many cases. This would have been a tough scenario to envision just six months ago. Everything had a tough go of it.

5i Recent Questions

Q: Hi 5i,
I noticed that your recent answer to a question on Tencent came up under the TCEHY symbol for over the counter trading. The company is now trading on the NYSE under the symbol TME, which should make a better market for it in North America and free it up from the warnings about RSP suitability that usually come up with the over the counter stuff. Cheers!

Q: The new equity issue by CAR.UN was priced almost $2 below recent trading range - and the market opened the next day with an immediate drop to match. CRT.UN did a similar move a month or so ago - with a corresponding immediate price drop. This appears to be a common industry practice - but that alone does not make it ethically right. I have been burned many times by this. Why are new equity issues not priced more in line with current trading range (e.g. to match closing price on the prior trading day)? Isn't it the duty of the regulator to block transactions that are priced to influence (i.e. manipulate) the market?

Q: Crypto mining has driven NVDA's stock price for some years now, but its currencies' decline will surely take a heavy toll on GPU sales into that market. Yes, AI and autonomous vehicle applications could expand, and consumers will continue to play video games, but are these enough to create actual earnings growth, or is NVDA more likely to tread water for a few years?
