Let’s Go Long On Delta – Actually fuck that let’s straddle



Note: This is not investment advice. If you follow this advice, you are an idiot. Also you can’t sue us if you lose all your money because you’re an idiot.

Who doesn’t know who Delta is? They’re a company with a bunch of airplanes that fly people around the world on a regular basis. From what I understand, they’re pretty successful.

And their earnings report is also tomorrow. We’re not financial professionals, but if we were then we’d tell you to go long on tomorrow’s earnings report, and here’s why:

  1. Airplanes aren’t going anywhere
  2. Higher oil prices
  3. $10B in profits last year
  4. “Only” a billion dollars in debt

Airplanes aren’t going anywhere

There’s a reason why Delta is a big company – because people like airplanes. I mean, just look at Boeing. They’re also a big company that has something to do with airplanes and I’m pretty sure they’re doing well also. So Delta probably will too.

Higher oil prices

You’d think that higher oil prices would mean that the stock would go down, right? Well you’d also probably think that the revelation that Facebook was secretly stealing everyone’s data would make their stock go down too. But it didn’t.

You’d also probably think that Uber losing a billion dollars a year would make their stock plummet too. Nope.

Still, with Trump’s crazy tweets and the recent jump in oil prices, it’s likely that investors will have an opinion on companies that use lots of oil. Like Delta.

$10B in profits last year

Delta made $10B in profits last year. I think that’s pretty good. I also think people will  look at that and be like “hmm, that’s pretty good.”

“Only” a billion dollars in debt

I don’t care what any of these idiots say who tell you “debt is good,” because it’s not. No investor looks at a balance sheet with a shitload of debt and creams their pants. Unless they’re the lender.

And I know a billion is a big number, but is it really? Nah. Not for Delta.


Delta is a big company that makes airplanes. Or flies airplanes. They have something to do with airplanes, and people use those planes to fly around. But there’s crazy shit going on with oil which will hurt their bottom line. So straddle this bitch and hold on for the ride.

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. Buffets style of value investing is known as one of the best in the industry and making Buffett one of the richest men in the world with a worth of about $90 billion.

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.
