RIP XIV and SVXY

A couple of whiles ago, I answered a question on XIV and SVXY. The question was: is XIV the most dangerous investment in the world? In it, I said I would never hold any of them long-term and probably not even short-term neither. In it, I stated that eventually, one day, XIV and SVXY would […]

How Profitable is Genesis-Mining?

Genesis-Mining is usually sold out 72h after listing new bitcoin mining. I believe it will be sold out soon after Black Friday. So hurry!! My first article on Genesis-Mining attracted a fair bit of attention.

SnapChat is crashing? I NEVER SAW THIS COMING!!!

So I’ve already written on Snapchat a couple of times now because very frankly, giving a $30B valuation to what is essentially a profitless app is absolutely asinine.

Project 250k: Starting up (First trade: WD-40)

WD-40 (NASDAQ:WDFC) should handily beat earnings estimates and rise quite a bit this earnings season. Overall, I don’t see this stock going anywhere in the next year or two, but I do not think they will go down neither. Little hype is built into their earnings release and while I don’t think they’ll hit another […]
