Netflix And Chill

On the Christmas of 2017, West Gifted Kim with shares in NFLX , AMZN , AAPL , ADS-DE and DIS. with the current price of these positions, Kim could be seeing huge profits.

Netflix has grown more than 90 percent makng it the West’s highest-earning pick. Since Christmas, Netflix beaten HBO in Emmy nominations, breaking HBO’s 17-year win streak. It also struck a multiyear deal with Former President Barack Obama His wife Michelle Obama to produce as of yet undisclosed series and features.  Of course, it hasn’t been all positive for this blazing stock. This past week, shares dropped over 14% because of news that Netflix fell short of subscriber growth projections. Regardless of the slippage, Kim is holding some impressive returns

Amazon Prime Time

Since the Christmas holiday last yer Amazon has soared more than 50%. Amazon recently announced that 2018’s Prime Day was the ” biggest in history” with Prime members purchasing over 100 million items during the event. Conversely they hsve had their fair share of setbacks, with shares falling from highs after suffering some glitches at the start of Prime Day.

Keep and eyeout this week for a swift pricechange after their earnings call July 30th.

Recently, Adidas sponsored 12 teams in the FIFA World Cup, but stocks were shaken after it faced a website security breach in late June. This stock is a consistent performer albeit not as hughe a profit magin as it siblings in Kanyes gift to Kim. If Kim held on to this stock she has earned about 7 percent return.

Disney No Cinderella Story Just Greatness

This legendary entertainment company be the weakest link of Kims portfolio thanks to a few starwars flops. the earnings since december stand at a clean 4%. This one is on it way up as it has some great plans for the future.After months of battling finally, In June disney won the U.S. antitrust approval to purchase the majority of 21st Century Fox’s assets for a whopping $71.3 billion.

Wests Portfolio Points North

For now it looks like the Genius Kanye west has struck again proving that he truly does have some sense. I wonder if he will start publicizing his christmas stock picks and inspire his fans to be financially literate. Lets hope people take something good from learning about Kanye West’s success.

Whats up with the buffet buyback?




First what’s a stock buyback?

A stock buyback is simply when a public traded company buys shares back from the open market.

It is common for businesses to buy back shares for several reasons

  • Help boost the value of their shares. This works because when there is less shares available it influences the price of that asset.
  • Boost earnings before and upcoming report.
  • Cause speculation on the value of their asset

In the past year it has been very common for companies to buy back shares. this is often helpful in rewarding investors.

Buffet knows something you dont!

Berkshire Hathaway is a company owned by Warren Buffett who is know for buying stake in companies he believes will grow in value with time. This time they arent buying shares of other companies but are investing in itself with approximately $1 billion worth of stock buybacks.

You may be wondering why Berkshire Hathaway is buying back shares? Well, after a decade long bull market in the USA coupled with increasing stock prices(potentially in bubble teritory now), Buffett thinks a buyback make sense because there is little percieved value anywhere else. The strategy must be working berkshire reported profits increased 351% to $18.5 billion this past year.

Euro to replace the dollar?




there is a probability

The euro is currently 1/3 of global transaction volume, and some think its potentially possible that the Euro coud be placed to surpass the dollar in importance. The euro like the dollar is a fiat currency that is used for trade between european nations and their allies when convenient. With sanctions tarifs and general economic bullying becoming the norm for america and its dollar, some nations are choosing to look for ways to escape dollar hegemony.

It’s not likely to really happen

The euro is a strong currency but it has little chance of becoming the worlds reserve currency. It is more likely that folks will choose to move away from any financial institution that can basically starve your population with financial and trade sanctions. In my opinion cryptocurrency will find it’s way into the worlds economy so that users can escape the easily restricted fiat currencies. Value based in valuless debt notes is on its way out and this will probably be the segway into the next financial crises.

Can cryptocurrency survive a gobal financial crisis?




Is cryptocurrency a hedge against economic downturns?

The answer to this question is quite controversial, some would say yes because this is what crypto was made for; while others would chime that crypto is unproven in a downturn and will need to survive its first one before we can feel at ease about its survivability. Much of your perception on whether bitcoin and cryptocurrency in general will survive aneconomic crisis, is based on where you stand about cryptocurrency in general. Today we will talk about the possible survivability of cryptocurency in a crisis.

Is Venezuela a test case

Right now in Aouth America there are several financial crises transpiring that may create possible examples of how crypto will fare in a financial storm. In venezuela reports are coing out that many people are choosing to use cryptocurrency to pay for life expenses. The national government under President Maduro have begun to implement their own state backed cryptocurrency called the petro. The Petro is an asset pegged to the price of a barrel of oil and the Venezuelan government hopes it will help them escape dollar tyrany. Hyperinflation has taken its toll on Venezuelans but many of them were informed enough to seek financial refuge with cryptocurrencies. This is a great example of how when value leaves fiat the holders will seek to run to other assets to store value; that exodus now has cryptocurrency as an outlet for the fleeing fiat users.

We may see a big example soon enough

Much of the world is currently on the precipice of a financial downturn and if america keeps behaving the way it has been then we will likely see a major crises emerge in the next 5 years or so. some analysts see a move away from the dollar as a potential catalyst whilst others proclaim that the trade war and student debt will push us into the downturn of this decade. Unlike those times prior, now cryptocurrency has created and outlet for those funds that “dissappear” from markets as the major stakeholders cash out. The financial bigwigs are likely going to enter the cryptospace as they will soon see it as a way to maintain some value in the crises they create.
