So I had a [similar comment in concept](https://www.reddit.com/r/investing/comments/z99hik/those_who_put_money_into_index_etfs_avus_vti_etc/iyil2lx/) and it got downvoted as well. It's weird that people downvote these thoughts but don't comment on them themselves. The fundamental point really is that people are just trusting vanguard to do their shit right. There is nothing wrong with the statement that people who get paid money to look at this shit are doing it, but isn't that exactly the kind of thinking people used when blindly buying AAA bonds in 2008? I'm not saying I'm smarter than those people, but I feel like denying that this is a complex chaotic machine that we just trust can't be controversial can it? Or does it just freak people out when something they thought was "safe" suddenly sounds less safe?

You need to quantify negligible. As I understand it, it's 10-25% depending on conditions, so if that's negligible then sure. However an EV is not that much worse if you exclude the cabin heater - and while it shouldn't be ignored entirely it won't be the same loss on cars vs trucks >[https://apnews.com/article/04029bd1e0a94cd59ff9540a398c12d1](https://apnews.com/article/04029bd1e0a94cd59ff9540a398c12d1) > >The automobile club tested the cars at 20 degrees and 95 degrees, comparing the range to when they were tested at 75 degrees Fahrenheit, according to a report on the study.

You obviously have not followed my comments for very long son. I do not have the energy to give you the normal econ 101 that many here have benefited from in the past (most are road kill now. Bulls and bears). But I am curious of what you mean by M2 adjusted and how exactly you adjusted it (the math) and the source you used for M2. I will give you a bit of a taste, though. The market rallied today out of rate increase fatique. The very fact that JPow said nothing different than he has for months was enough to cause a rally like this should scare the heck out of ya as a longer term bull. As should the fact that bad news is good news. In the past it kinda of made sense because the FED really was there to rescue the market. They aren't this time. JPow just told you that. Gonna take alot of pain for the FED to cut rates. Including pain in the equitiy markets. Economics is far from a science, but economic forces are very real. Forget about money supply son. You are looking backwards. Think about fundamental economic forces instead. I have called for a 5% terminal rate since early this year. I was ridiculed on here. Yet now pausing at 5% is cause for jubilation! Well, a 5% fed funds rate is going to bite and bite hard. It implies an AAA borrowing rare of around 8%. That alone is going to kill the earnings of ALL publicly traded company on earth. Those pristine balance sheets you hear about? Pick any company you want, and then go take a gander at that balance sheet. You will see a shit ton of debt. That debt will have to be rolled over. It will have a huge effect, dude. Have you seen the data on what the IOR is "costing" the Fed reserve? Incredible, actually. And we are only just now at 3.75%. Do the math on 5%. Do the compounding over a few years. And that is just for bank reserves! Now ponder the Federal budget deficit. Ponder State government borrowing costs. Your local cities borrowing cost. The above diatribe is just about the unarguable effects from going to "just" 5% for the foreseeable future. There is so much more. But yeah. I'll take a gander at M2 (I check it often son). You use that brain God gave you and ponder what is going to be the actual consequences of JPow's vision. You bulls are soooo cute. I just want to hug you. Love, Dad. ***

In '99 companies with no path to profitability (or acquisition) were valued at hundreds of millions, if not billions. There was no fundamental value. It was pure mania. Most of those companies were gone by '01. In '08 you had the culmination of 40 years of abstracting mortgages. Once upon a time, banks held the loans they issued. To that end, defaults were rare and recoveries were high. Then they started selling those mortgages off to the credit markets and they got sloppy. Then the ratings agencies decided that a "diverse" selection of horse shit mortgages magically transmutes into a AAA bond. At that point banks would give loans to anyone willing to speak the right words, understanding that they would immediately sell them off. And with that every decent liar owned 4 or 5 properties and we had the ultimate housing bubble, which still wouldn't have been that bad, had it not been followed by a financial crisis as all those AAA bonds imploded and contagion spread.... Anyways, shit's fucked up in 2022 but here we have a fundamentally strong economy confronted by shocks. Those reference periods were hollow bullshit that crumbled accordingly. 2022 has fundamentals to fall back on. Rate hikes will cause a modest recession. It's nothing like '99 or '08.

You could buy short data muni's maturing before then. Don't trade these, buy and hold a few bonds. Don't buy a bond fund with NAV risk. Buy bonds maturing in the first quarter. Stick to General Obligation bonds backed by property taxes or Essential Revenue Bonds (water, sewer, electricity). Look for 5% coupon or better with AA-AAA credit quality (you can go down to single A). Buy in state bonds for both Federal and State tax free. You don't have enough money to ladder at this point but buy these bonds after the FED raises in December another 50 bps. This or stick with bank CDs that are higher quality. Don't chase yield ensure the bank has a solid balance sheet. One last option is to wait until we get a capitulation day and then buy blue chip equities. Once the FED is done, you will have time for a rebound. Depends on your outlook for a shallow or long recession. The consumer seems strong; still working through pent up demand coming out of Covid so economy should not fall off a cliff. By introducing equities you introduce risk, but also greater growth than cash or a cash equivalent.

It's really not? Apple is hosting the store service that allows you to market and sell the app/purchased. This is no different than Steam taking a cut of what is sold on their platform, Epic taking a cut on what is sold on their god forsaken front, or even a grocery store taking a cut of what is sold. It is literally how a marketplace functions. Apple owns the infrastructure, they expect a cut of the profits being sold through. ​ I think the general rule of thumb for video games back in the brick and mortar days was a store could expect to make 10-12 dollars off list price for a AAA game. But that doesn't mean the studio made the remaining 50 dollars. Instead, they had to pay money to the platform, they had to pay money to licensing and such. There is a \*lot\* that goes on behind the scenes.

To address your concerns in order - Steam cannot exist without Microsoft. Take a look at Steam hardware survey. The most popular OS’s are Windows (Microsoft) variants - every PC that uses a Microsoft OS ends up being revenue for Microsoft, whether it’s a prebuilt or a custom built PC. - Whether gamers like it or not EA and Activision will always own the vast majority of the gaming community with a) literally every sports game b) Call of duty c) MMOs like world of Warcraft and d) several other AAA titles. - to combine your concerns about Microsoft store and Sony… these companies literally realize that they cannot compete with PC gaming because it’s the future. Building a supply chain around a client device (consoles) that increasingly can’t compete with PC gaming both in cost and availability is becoming a nightmare for these companies. An exercise in syndication (meaning releasing old exclusives so people buy a PS5 and they can play newest games in the series ) is now becoming a defensive play of retaining lost revenue (a good example being that Spider-Man Remastered came to console and Steam at the same time, same with the latest Call of Duty). - Weeb games from Square Enix and Capcom? What did you cry when you played Dark Souls for the first time lol? That’s a whole different market than your Warzone and FIFA players and a market that’s usually willing to spare no expense on expensive hardware and vast Steam libraries. - finally please note my comment about interest rates. No company, industry, or investment strategy is safe currently from the wrecking ball that is increasing rates. WHEN that does stop, and consumers have real expendable income again - PC gaming is where I hypothesize they will go. Thank you 🙏

As I mentioned in a previous comment (above), Costco's p/e and p/bv have increased more than 2-fold, their earnings growth has decreased, their share count has increased, and their debt has slowly increased over the last decade. What is attractive about this? Their earnings are growing at 13% per year, which after 5 years would mean the p/e ratio would be 21.7 if the stock went nowhere. A p/e ratio of 20 is equivalent to a 5% return, which is less than what can be gained from AAA-rated corporate bonds. A truly risk-free rate of 4% can be gained from treasuries, which is a p/e equivalent of 25. If Costco misses a beat for even 2 quarters, watch their stock plummet.

Term Asset Backed Loan Facility The Term Asset-Backed Securities Loan Facility (TALF) is a joint program with the Federal Reserve. The program was launched in March 2009 with the aim of helping to restart the asset-backed securitization (ABS) markets that provide credit to consumers and small businesses. The financial crisis severely impacted these markets. Under this program, the Federal Reserve Bank of New York made non‐recourse loans to buyers of AAA‐rated asset‐backed securities to help stimulate consumer and business lending. Treasury used TARP funds to provide credit support for these loans.

I calculated Margin of Safety for these. This is the intrinsic value vs the current trading price. Anything over 25% is good. This is because the AAA bond rates change daily and could spike significantly. 21 of the total 70 are negative MoS, so you wouldnt even touch those if they hit intrinsic value. Id wait until they were trading below 25% of IValue before even looking at them. Another 19 have a MoS between 1%-25%. I have to manually update the 5YR estimated EPS, so I do that monthly unless something is really close to that 25% MoS and I look before buying.

TTM EPS Growth, current AAA Bond Yield, estimated 5YR EPS growth. Its a basic intrinsic value calculation. Its basically where the price of an equity should be looking at future growth compared to AAA bond rates. I created a spreadsheet about 70 equities I track through the year within all the sectors to see potential buys/sells etc. I use other measures but this is one of the more basic ones. I use FCF for dividend longs, PEG ratios, financial statements, etc. Not perfect but it has worked for me.

I know exactly 'What NFTs can be used for'. Nothing. Absolutely everything you can do with an NFT you can do already with regular software. Not only have we had the tech to trade/exchange/sell digital items for decades already, a change to ToS giving perpetual licenses to access a specific piece of game content (i.e. giving you the right to have something digital) would be functionally identical to an NFT, but without reinventing the wheel. Guess what? no major publisher wants to do this. When global sales of video games and in-game purchases continue to increase year on year, even if you lobotomize yourself and pretend there's a tangible benefit to using blockchain over anything else, there's no financial incentive whatsoever for the majority of companies to move away from what they are already doing. >how creators will jump on board as they will have 98% of the margins, Once again proving my point, you've got no idea how game development works. Do you think publishers and storefronts just yank a cut of the profits and do literally nothing? Itch.io, Epic Games and humble bundle only take a 12% cut from game sales, yet they do not even come close to making a dent in sales on Steam, Microsoft and Sony storefronts. Why? Surely Rockstar would save literal millions of dollars if they quit steam and sold GTA 5 on Itch.io! Oh wait. They didnt do that did they? it's almost like there's more to the story than just the raw percentage. Gee, I wonder why almost everybody, from the smallest studio to the largest giant releases their games day 1 on storefronts that charge 30%. If only I had more than three braincells and could look this up myself. > instant transactions and a huge fan base to sell to You mean like Steam? Or any website ever? Lmao what game store doesn't have instant transactions? Have you been using dial-up until recently or what Would love to see your evidence for this 'huge fanbase' though since even Epic Games can't make a dent in global game sales compared to Steam. They are literally giving away AAA games for free and can't get people onto their platform. >GME wallet is out for iOS babe 🤙🏼 Keep spending gas fees and waiting 5 business days for simple transactions on FTX where you don’t own your assets I don't 'wait 5 days for simple transactions' because I live in the 21st century and use real currency to buy things.

They are the exclusive partners with gamestop and IMX have targeted 2 billion in game transactions within 2 years. Besides, both crypto companies have deflationary tokens along with the necessary infrastructure to facilitate a massive digital only economy. I don’t see anyone else even half as capable in the crypto space as the Layer 2 technology with its near 0 gas fees and incredibly efficiency. Why is efficiency key here? because you want to be able to sell in game items for as low as possible $0.01 without having any large transaction fees. This makes NFTs 1:1 with the cost of transaction of standard AAA game micro transactions.

Everything they are referring to is nonsense as of now. The marketplace is neither profitable and all the speculation around NFT games/skins etc is absolute bagholder fan fiction. Even if a AAA game maker were to be interested in adding NFTs to their games they would just make their own marketplace.

>I use an address in the US that’s family and haven’t declared anywhere that I’m a non-resident. That should be fine. It sounds like you would be treated like an ex-pat. When you file your US annual taxes, you would normally just get a foreign tax credit for taxes that you pay in Mexico. ​ > I have a SSN and unless I’m asked I don’t say I’m not a resident. That's fine. But just so you know, being a resident and being a citizen and a US tax-payer are separate things. From an investing perspective - you are obligated as a US tax-payer to pay US taxes on capital gains and dividends. Re: Cetes - both Cetes and Treasuries are sovereign debt investments. Cetes will have a higher yield because Cetes are considered riskier than Treasuries. Credit rating on Mexico's debt is BBB which is good, US debt is AAA which is better so interest rates paid on US debt is lower.

It's time to count your blessings. You say you lost 70%. That means you still have over 300k in equity, which is still more than most people will have after a life time of savings. It's hard for others to feel bad for you when they will never have an opportunity to gamble at that level. Also keep in mind others have lost as much or more from AAA rated investment grade securities in their 401k that they were always told could never lose 80%.. Use this as a learning experience to manage and understand risk better. You may have to make changes to your lifestyle, or adjust plans you had regarding working, but at least you still have a much greater safety net than the average person will ever know. Also let this be a lesson to the rest of you tards. It's all a big joke until it's not. Take a step back and reevaluate your risk tolerance. It's easy to feel comfortable losing when you've only known victory.

And what’s your point? Go read what’s being said there. Go put the parts together. Do you own shares in the market or IOUS? Are your shares being lent without your approval? Are algorithms trading ahead of your moves using payment for order flow? Is the head of the SEC ignoring these claims? Are the companies you own being shorted with synthetic (counterfeit) shares? It’s a house of cards. The financial media, banks, clearing houses, brokers, ratings agencies, auditing firms, and hedge funds are not adding value—they’re there to siphon it off. We’ve already watched it happen in 2008 under the guise of “triple AAA” rated MBS and CDS turned nuclear financial weapon for which 20 trillion was lost.

Cost of Equity = Risk Free Rate + beta(Equity Risk Premium-RFR) but What if the Risk Free Rate for the coin in which the company works is **above** the Equity Risk Premium? It leads to a weird situation for Cost of Equity, where the higher the stock's beta, the less CoE. It doesn't feel right. Should I subtract the Country Risk Premium to the Risk Free Rate (given that it's not a AAA country so it's not a RFR) in order to add the same level of risk to the RFR as to the ERP (The ERP is computed by taking into account the CRP)?

>where do people come up with these arguments? That’s one of the dumbest things I’ve heard in a while. Zero debt, 1 billion in cash and holiday season coming up. 1. **Zero debt.** That's great, but GameStop is losing over 100m per quarter. 2. **1 billion in cash** It used to be $1.7 billion in cash. Now it's $900 million. Are you noticing a trend? A cash pile only lasts so long if you're not profitable (around 25 months, in this case). 3. **Holiday season coming up.** GameStop shit the bed the last few holiday seasons. With a looming recession, consumer sentiment is down. Holiday sales overall are expected to be below average. I doubt GameStop is immune to this downturn. The $900 million buys them some time, but how do you imagine GameStop is going to stop the bleeding? * GameStop's *fixed* costs rose 17% last year, even before they raised employee pay. * GameStop is still struggling with the transition from selling high-margin software to low-margin hardware. This problem is only getting worse. * The NFT space has gone cold, and the GameStop NFT marketplace has failed to crack the top 10 NFT marketplaces since the first week of the beta launch. Zero AAA game studios have signed on to use GME/IMX for their NFT offerings, and many have downsized their NFT gaming departments. >blue chip stocks have lost billions in market cap this year and the bottom isn’t even in yet. GME is down about the same as the Nasdaq YTD. Not sure why this matters when talking about GameStop, though. Individual stocks over/underperform the market all the time. Also, blue chip stocks typically trade based on fundamentals (revenue, profit, growth, etc.). GameStop apes don't care about fundamentals because they believe in MOASS. However, they will start to care once GameStop runs out of money and dilutes you with a huge stock offering.

It's effecting bond pricing. The money is pulled in and held for long periods in high rate bonds which means it can't be used in the real economy. It's a way to sponge up the excess while not issuing new low rate bonds that would be used to say, send the housing market into a frenzy by providing AAA bonds for MBS @ below 3%. The Feds only lever is the quantity of money in the system. The rate just signals to banks whether they should increase saving or increase spending. To quote the smartest MF "inflation is everywhere and always a monetary phenomenon".

Unreal is a more powerful engine but Unity is a much more versatile engine. You take unreal if your goal is to make AAA games or get hired as a top 1% developer, but unreal is a very opinionated engine that sucks for making anything besides AAA-style FPS/3rd person 3d games. Unity is essentially a blank canvas so it's much harder to start out (coding language is not the hardest part of game development), but due to it's versatility is used in so much more than gaming. It also dominates VR/AR development for that reason, as well as other fields where using Unreal is impractical because it's so opinionated towards making video games.

Its hard to monetize it. The entire point to Unity was that it was free for small teams and cheap once you got a little bigger and can afford it. It succeeded and eventually became very popular but all of this is because it attracts smaller developers with little money. That being said, they did a real nice job adding enterprise management features and high end graphic features. In theory, you could make a AAA game with Unity if you wanted to at this point but bigger studios, so far, havent done so. Of course there really arent very many "big" studios to begin with so that has a lot to do with it. But back to the point, hard to monetize. They bought a ads company to try to monetize that way but I get the feeling that this was the wrong way to go. What Unity needs to do is what they are already experts at... make games. They already have a huge brand so in theory they could make a bunch of generic games with their brand and eat some market share in various genres.

The weirdest Reddit phenomenon is the ppl that encounter a differing opinion then there own and it instantly becomes a radical opinion that could be only be formed in some kind of internet hive mind lol Believe it or not my opinion was formed from using the engines, and not from your previous internet experiences. The easiest way to break it down is unity' programming language is C#, and unreals is c++. C# is much easier to learn, unity' engine as a whole doesn't handle graphics as well. So it's a great engine to make mobile games with. C++ is much harder to learn but unreal is a much more powerful engine, making it great for AAA quality games I ultimately chose unreal for a bunch of reasons but there blueprint system is pretty key , it's a visual coding system that's even easier to use c# , the fact that it was free and I'd only have to pay if I 1 mil in profit was pretty sweet as well. there always upgrading there engine to make things easier/faster/more powerful, they have great learning tools like sample games you can open and view the code, straight up giving you templates to certain type of games to give you a huge headstart They've added metahuman creator to make the creation of characters easier and look incredible, an animation and modeling tool in engine so you don't have to constantly import and export meshes and animations saving a ton of time, world composition/partition to seperate and stream large open worlds There newest features for unreal engine 5 will save developers so much time , and completely eliminate some of the most tedious processes of asset creation, with lumen and nanite you can just leave assets at multi million poly counts instead of tediously reducing them and creating 5 versions of each model for different level of detail (Lods) Do you need all this for a mobile game? No , unity could be a simpler option But unreal are innovators, they lead the charge on the progress of game engines/game development/game performance, they make shit easier/ faster/ more efficient To tell you the truth I stopped following what unity was doing years ago, it seemed one engine was about progress of the industry and the tools you work with , and the other was about giving you simple programming language so you can make basic games quickly , both have value A serious question tho , I haven't looked into unity as an investment , what are they spending all there funds on? There losses just keep increasing along with there revenue growth , the more revenue they have , the greater there earnings loss , mobile games is a huge/highly profitable industry , what gives ?

Can you tell me a single AAA game made with a Unity engine? I know developers who use it (and other engines) and they say it’s nothing special or groundbreaking tech. This is one of those overhyped companies during the post COVID era where everyone thought they will grow forever. It’s still a $10 billion (a bit less now) company with a tiny fraction of revenues compared to actual profitable video game companies. This was valued at ~$100 billion at one point, more than Microsoft paid for Activision by $30 billion, think about the absurdity of that number. Just because it’s down from $200 to $20 doesn’t mean it’s cheap or that it will ever go back to such levels.

Hard to measure risk, so outperforming the S&P500 on a risk adjusted basis is tough to measure. It's a rough thing to try to beat. For example, I might beat the S&P500 if I buy AAA corporate bonds today and hold for 10 years, on a risk adjusted basis, because the risk is lower typically than the S&P500, and my capital appreciation doesn't even have to win then...

Web3 gaming is about to roll out and they’re the market place AAA developers are already contributing half a trillion dollars in development efforts toward. Why would the largest game developers commit that much money to develop games in a space where there’s only a single marketplace? I mean, it’s $25 stock and that’s a compelling enough argument for me. Video Games were just about the only thing I impacted by the previous recession. The next one appears to be here. Just my perspective…

From my point of view it's kind of ridiculous to think that bad companies have been able to survive just because they received cheap debt. I am working in a big multinational company and since we are non investment grade, we still had to pay 3.5% when interest rates were close to zero. During Covid we had to pay roughly 10% interest rates for new loans. If your company makes barely enough money to pay the interest, they definitely will not have a AAA rating.
