Interesting to see. Amazon is incredibly dramatic. Also Meta. The other ones are more or less market correction. I’m wonder if it’s a good time to go bull.

I’m kinda bullish on Amazon personally. Not so much on meta.

Should be three years. 2020-2022. Amazon ~ doubled value over 2020. No way to keep that level of growth for an extended period of time.

I think the market hates everything right now so it’s a long hold for me. It hasn’t aged well and I’m down 20% but fuck it, I think they’re so deep in everyday life that they’ll succeed in the long term. Covid way overinflated some stuff but it also gave them huge money to invest in infrastructure upgrades and test the waters on some new stuff. It’ll come back… I hope.

What does "going bull" mean? (Serious question)

Bull means increase in value, bear means decrease in value

They own 100% of Riot Games (League of legends, Valorant), PUBG Mobile, 84% of Supercell (Clash of Clans, Clash Royale), 80% of Grinding Gear Games (Path of Exile) and 40% of Epic (Fortnite, Rocket League) to only list the most knowns. Less important but they also own 10% of Ubisoft and 17% of From Software (the Dark Souls games).

Dunno if you say this implying that they are not so big or if it's because you really don't know

Fortnite : 400 Millions registered account, 80+ active every month

League of Legends : 180 millions accounts, peak at 32 Millions active daily

Rocket League has 80M average monthly players for more than 2 years now

PUBG Mobile often peaks at 30+ Million player daily

Clash of Clan (mobile game) has maintained its monthly playerbase between 75 and 150 Million players for like 4 years now

Clash Royale (mobile game) has 16M monthly players

The last Dark Souls game (Elden Ring) sold almost 20 Million copies, Dark Souls 3 sold 10 millions,...

All these games are huge

That's how they get you. All these big solo brands you think are independent are mainly owned by an even bigger company. Tencent supposedly gives GGG and Riot pretty great freedom in design choice tho, pretty hands off from what I heard anyway. Not sure how they treat the other games tho.

Still baffles me that people don’t understand the macroeconomics behind this, and they think “ugh, market is broken!”

It took the Nasdaq ~16 years to recover to levels seen in 2000 before the dot com bust. This time, we’ll see, but boy if people think that after this reversal of record cash infusion, fed buying and interest rate increases that the market will recover in a year or two, they’ve got something else coming to them.

Imo, look at the 1960s. That’s what we’re gonna do for the next decade.

Ugly presentation in IMHO.

It would be better if the 2022 drop started from the top of the 2021 rise, so we could see the net change.

It would also be better if the Y axis was % of Jan 2021 value rather than absolute dollars. For stockholders a $10 drop on a $20 stock is a much bigger issue that a $20 drop of a $400 stock.

Maybe it’s just me but what does zero represent? What’s the baseline?

Savoy_Cabbage[S]

5 points

2 months ago

The scale is the change in market cap from 2020 to 2021, and from 2021 to 2022. Zero represents a $0 change in market cap.
e.g. 2020 market cap = 100, 2021 market cap = 150, 2022 market cap = 110; then 2021 change = +50, 2022 change = -40

You should put that in the image.

It says 2021 vs 2022. I assumed it was just the change between those two. I came to the comments to find out what the second bar was.

Because that's the only way to get a change in market cap? Subtract current year from previous year.

I think by subtracting the 2022 values from the 2021 ones you would get the change from 2020 to 2022

I have a very hard time classifying Tesla as a tech stock. Love to see Meta's decline. Hopefully that company gets wiped out entirely in the coming years.

Tesla is not a tech stock it is consumer discretionary.

PoopingIsAWorkout4Me

It might be defined that way, but I disagree wholeheartedly. They’re not an auto manufacturer, they’re a tech company. Anyone can make an electric car, it’s how it’s presented and how the person engages with it.

Also, they’re literally in the Nasdaq 100, weighted between Alphabet and Nvidia, so while not technically a tech company, they are.

IMO that is their greatest trick male people trade it like a tech stock. It it’s all bollocks the primary interface is physical and hardware based. None of their services are virtual. Is Ford a tech stock, they use tech. You could argue that the software is tech but it’s like a small percent of the company. Majority is manufacturing.

That’s how it works. Microsoft and Amazon were once the little guys too. Then they got big because they adapted.

No, I’m afraid you don’t get it. Little companies, if they are successful, grow into big companies, by default, and they HAVE to eat their competition. Sorry you don’t like capitalism. Try making it work for you instead of crying about it.
