September 26, 2021 | What Could Go Wrong?

I have written several letters on the theme that the best investment posture is cautious optimism. Pessimism and bearishness never get you in the game, while untamed optimism means that at some point, you’ll have a serious setback. The cautiously optimistic investor asks both, “What could go wrong?” and “What could go right?” Dave Portnoy […]

September 25, 2021 | ‘Katie-Bar-the-Door’ Time for Evergrande Speculators?

September 24, 2021 | China Evergrande is not Lehman Brothers

The China Evergrande debacle continues to worsen. China Evergrande, the second largest property developer in China and the most indebted in the world, missed loan payments this week, triggering a technical default.

September 24, 2021 | Today’s Chart: Gold Breakout Coming?

Sometimes it helps to zoom out a bit. For gold (at least when priced in US dollars), the past few years’ action has seemed boring, one might even say directionless.

September 23, 2021 | China’s ‘Controlled’ Credit Explosion

This report gives a good overview of the global interconnections in our highly levered financial markets and economies.
