What Bubble? NASDAQ Rises Above 4,000, Back To Year 2000, Dot-Com Bubble Levels

Tyler Durden's picture


Nope, no bubble here... and no complacency either. And while just like last time, the tech companies still have no profits, at least this time they have revenues... most of which originate from the seemingly infinite advertising budgets at struggling discretionary retailers. By way of gentle reminder - In 2000, total US debt was $5.7 trillion. Now it is three times greater, or $17.2 trillion. As Kyle Bass once warned, "we are right back there! The brevity of financial memory is about two years."

There is no bubble because everybody says there's one so it can't be true.

So I guess the same is true for the next major storm or tsunami and any other disaster not being true if everybody says it is!


And hey,  what's that funny collor there on the screen.... Begins with an "r" ...

Yes but everyone also says there is no bubble (because everyone says there is bubble?...) So which is true?

If you're at the beach and you see an oncoming tsunami, and everyone around you agrees that its an oncoming tsunami, it absolutely positively means that there is no oncoming tsunami.  Its not there.  Just ignore it and keep buying ES on your smartphone.  Everything is great.  Besides if you and everyone else gets wiped out because of this ridiculous line of thinking, you will be improving the quality of the human gene pool.  You see?  Everything is great.

Some of us thought it would be restructured when crAAPL was hitting 700. So much for that, but so much for this too heh.

Obama is having the NSA force all the tech companies out of the United States of America. Forward looking, they will have to do better once they leave.

The Manchurian candidate is so busy destroying the country and no one rational can question it at this point. The fact is you can't be on the wrong side of issues and the economy so often without this being the plan.

The modern IPO model: the more negative the net income, the higher the market cap.

You have to be a somebody - and you can only post pictures of your dinner (on the table, not post) that you grew singlehandedly, in the frozen tundra ... with no fertilizer.

I've been asked how will we known when this thing starts to pop? My answer is when Paul Krugman says the stock market is in a bubble then you'll know the bubble has popped.

The FED has gotten good at hiding and mopping up liquidity. The banks or State Street bank are the largest shareholders. Any sales will be bought and hidden there. In 2008 the biggest crash was caused by zero asks. Now we have an ask for everything thanks to FED. Plus the HFT bots can create fake price discovery faster than the sells. So we have a totally fake asset market because the banks need to pretend they have reserves and asset collateral. They are even allowed to make and asset up from thin air to add it to reserves and then leverage it up and play the ponies. Anyone predicting a crash is an idiot- the FED has total control thanks to a total lack of ethics and supercomputers. Unless you see a change in free market attitude just BTFD- the stock "market" died in 2011.

2000 was the Greenspan YTK money printing.  Now is pretty much the same thing.

Significant numbers of firms in the sector have only achieved 'earnings' through racketeering and other illegal things such as H-1B visa abuse.  A very shaky sector indeed.  What's Google worth if they had to exclusively use domestic talent (=$$$), and had to pay full taxes?  Probably a fraction of its current market cap.
