The Capitalist Investor - Episode 142

For a very long time, good news seems to be bad news & bad news seems to good news. The market has been irrational digesting traditional econmic information. Over the past week, the market has become a lot more rational in it’s thinking. What do we mean by that? On top of that, we haven’t seen Joe Biden for a few weeks while he had COVID. After his rally, there were a couple key takeaways that Americans did not miss, and the crowd seemed not to miss either. What did Joe Biden say that threanted essentially half of America? Last week we covered student loans, and after a week of digesting this news, a lot of people are asking how much it’s going to cost and how we are going to pay for it. The answer from the Biden Administration is, “No matter how much it costs, it is paid for.” They don’t even know how much it will cost in the end. All of this is covered in this week’s “The Capitalist Investor” episode.

Outline of This Episode:

  • [2:29] Stock Market Becoming More Rational
  • [09:27] Biden Rally – Epic Fail
  • [17:11] Studen Loan Handouts Are “Paid For”

Stock Market Becoming More Rational

The market has been extremely irrational all year. Good economic data seems to come out and the stock market sells off. Then, when bad economic data comes out, the stock market seems to gain strength.

A lot of these market movements are dictated by the perception of what the Federal Reserve will do next. But finally, over the past week, the Federal Reserve has been very outspoken about what their goal is and what they will do to achieve that goal.

But at the same time, earlier this week, we great employment data. Apparently, the United States economy added 300,000 jobs this week. What does that tell you about what the Fed has to do next?

The market seems to finally have some more clarity on what the Federal Reserve will do next. The big question is, when will good news become good news again? When will bad news become bad news again? That is the trillion dollar question to this stock market.

Biden Speech – Epic Fail

Joe Biden recently got COVID and we haven’t seen much of him. He seemed to keep testing positive for the virus, so he wasn’t outgoing with his public appearances.

Earlier this week, Joe Biden held a rally where he said some pretty off the wall things. The reaction of the crowd wasn’t as thrilling as the Democratic & Biden himself had hoped.

One of the major comments the Joe Biden made involved essentially threatening half of the American people. He was trying to aim at gun control comments at the rally, but they did not come out the way it was supposed to. He then tried to clarify those comments, but the crowd wasn’t about it.

When you combine the comments from Joe Biden’s rally with other comments from the Democratic party involving student loan debt, it’s been a heck of a week. Apparently, student loan debt is paid for, no matter what the cost. The kicker, is that Democrats don’t even know how much it will cost. But they really don’t care about that, do they?
