Esg funds have outperformed the SP500 over the last decade. Most are just a tech heavy SP fund. It's fine if you don't want to invest based on the name, but reality is ESG is a branding tool like "gmo" or "organic" which is loosely defined and gets people to pay higher management fees. But you can't get worked up and deny the actual performance of the funds (broadly) or you're just being the political one. That said, it's funny when people argue that energy policy should be left to the free market, then whine when companies incorporate climate risk into their strategy. Ask any insurance company.

1. Warren Buffet didn't get where he is by just keeping his money. Even though his performance has declined. 2. Very very true for WB. 3. The big stars invest what they believe in and clients trust them. If you don't like the style of one star, you can chose another. WB is obviously very US centric, but ESG isn't his thing. If you don't like the US, go Dahlio. 4. WB (or Peter Lynch) aren't basing their investment on macro cycles. I think mixing some of your portfolio to reflect what smarter people think is a good idea. Just because 20% of your portfolio has the same stuff as BRK doesn't mean you are bound by it.

Mentions:#WB#ESG

Ok. 1: Some of them are not looking for growth, but rather keeping their money. 2: They are limited to what they can buy due to their large portfolios, therefore they must usually stick to large caps or their position will basically buy a company. 3: Most of them have clients that are looking at stuff like ESG, country of origin, workers condition, sustainability etc. 4: People have different outlook of the macroeconomic situation. Some believe we are heading for a huge recession and will position their portfolio to reflect that. Others believe differently. So no, you should not copy wealthy investors directly. Of course its nice to get ideas from what the big dogs are doing, but copying them is really not smart given the vast difference is life situation, portfolio situation etc. And that's where retail investors have a insane advantage; they can basically pick any stock they personally like.

ESG and green policies are dumb, but way overblown in the oil market compared to unit economics. People these days on reddit, in the press and etc are just looking to drive engagement, so they come up with vapid political narratives to drive influencer points. Important to look beyond this. The reason western countries haven’t invested in exploration in the last 10 years is because they got smacked by opec and caught in an over leveraged position In the last decade. There was a gold rush for fracking, and it created a lot of losses all across the supply chain. So this time they are being a bit conservative. But they are still expanding production, and have been for some time. We will cross an all time high of production in the US next year. Meanwhile demand is going flat or shrinking. This will absolutely create a crash in oil prices at some time, probably next year. And probably brought on by settlement of war in Ukraine. So I would stay the heck away from the oil market. There is a LOT of speculation going on right now on wars and inflation, and there is way too much oil in the world right now - the only upside argument is that the political situation gets worse. Because the economics paint a dismal picture on oil.

what's funny is that AAPL is the #1 holding in the Vanguard ESG ETF. given their gross violation of the Social & Governance aspects, will they be removed? 🤔 Answer: NOPE 🤪

Thanks for the coherence. But what about lack of financing in the oil patches, due to ESG and green policies? Western countries aren't investing in new production because banks aren't financing, at least to allow for 35$ fracking. I think OPEC sees China demand declining precipitously and US's ability to bring new supplies online as limited rn, so will keep cutting production to keep prices artificially high.

He’s had them short for a long long time too. He can afford it & it’s just a matter of time until his wef buddies and taxpayer dollars start shorting Tesla too.

Wow fuck that your ESG rating is terrible you misgendered people in the first few words.

There’s different views on ESG investing. If you want to go that route, I recommend you do your own research rather than relying upon a company that gives out ESG scores. Secondly, i would dig deeper on what your goal is. For instance, do you want to keep your money out of the hands of companies you deem unethical? Or do you want to help people? You could invest in whatever companies you want and donate a portion of your profits to the specific causes you find most worth.

Investing in a company that operates in an area rife with child slavery, knows it's rife with child slavery, yet doesn't control to make sure it sources child slavery free product is unethical. And yet Nestle is held in ESG funds...

Mentions:#ESG

Ethical investing is not novel. ESG is a huge movement. You can track companies, money managers, and others that already invest and understand what goes into their rational. You could also simply invest in products (ETPs, etc) that claim to be ethical. In you're investing directly into companies that meet your criteria, I'd say that ethical behavior is a spectrum and a grey area - so beware that it is hard to even define ethics. For example, 6 weeks ago, the world was convinced FTX was on the high road relatively speaking amongst its peers.

Mentions:#ESG

The common way of going about this is investing in ESG funds. However, I’m a bit jaded with this approach as ESG feels like a bit of a scam to me. The approach requires high fees based on admin, research and redistributing and tend to make the appearance of the firm offering the fund to be skimming off investors attempting to do the ethical thing. Take a look at https://fossilfreefunds.org/. I wont say that fossil fuel related business are the only unethical companies, or entirely unethical on their own. However, this seems to be a decent approach to what you’re looking for. Good luck friend, and thanks, if nothing else for caring.

Personally I'm really loving this year. The higher interest rates, QT and the end of the era of cheap, easy money is going to send so many arrogant, bloated, overweight, overhyped, dogcrap companies, philosophies, markets and ideas that we've been peddled for the past 10+ years down the f'ing toilet. This is seriously going to separate the wheat and chaff, and things like Big Tech (eg Netflix, Meta, FTX), China, Blackrock, Cathie Woods, ESG investing, Buzzfeed, etc, all these airie fairie scams, bubbles and other assorted bullcrap are going to get filtered on the other end of this tightening cycle HARD (assuming we sustain this monetary environment according to the Fed's current trajectory). Historically low interest rates and cheap money has always led to a high proliferation of scams and money schemes, like Charles Ponzi in the 1920's, as people look to park their money somewhere to join in on all the assorted bullruns happening, and this era was no different, just on a MUCH grander scale with all this crap we saw during the last decade and especially last year- from the vast majority of bloated Big Tech companies, to cryptocurrency, to China and Chinese stocks, to multimillion dollar garbage real estate in some ghetto American suburb, to student loan debt- all this worthless trash is no different to the old Ponzi schemes and Greater Fool schemes of the 1920's and its all going to blow up and come crashing down in a glorious sh!tshow and I can't freaking wait. A lot of people who thought they were hot sh!t and the big shot callers of the past decade+ are going to get a serious wake up call in the next few years. Yes, I love these high interest rates, and I hope we make and sustain a 5%+ EFFR for years to come. It's long past due for some people to come tf back down to Earth and get in touch with reality again.

In many cases today corporations make more profits that meet esg standards. Typically more efficient uses of materials, energy, water, etc. Yep thats it. Anyone who calls it bs probably never existed in a world where they had to pay for anything. I mean would you improve insulation in a home if it had a payback? Rooftop solar if it saved you money? LED lights? Water use efficiency at manufacturing plants. Its all been done for a long time its now just called ESG.

Mentions:#ESG

This is exactly how I feel. ESG is a very personal rating. It will be different for everyone and people should be doing their own research into whats important to them, for each company they invest. Absolutely do not trust someone else's ESG ratings score. If a company brags about their generic "official" score, its more likely they are crap. Its obscene the amount of companies that pull out their ESG cards when they are the farthest thing from it.

Mentions:#ESG

It's an apples and oranges comparison. The governance section is the only one that's not industry specific. It's best to go to the actual source of the ESG ratings rather then learning from biased sources. Now, ESG funds are a different story all together and typically underperform compared to non-esg funds.

Mentions:#ESG

ESG is a thing, but some of the measurement is terrible. I remember looking at ESG funds that held Nestle ( buying cocoa produced by slave labor, their formula in Africa antics) or Apple (see Foxconn issues), but God forbid you buy a weapons manufacturer like Lockheed that can only sell to countries the US approves, or an oil company like Exxon that provides an absolutely vital raw material. So much of it is someone else’s morality.

Mentions:#ESG

If a company's ESG scores go up, then it is approaching the End of the Stock's Gains.... In all seriousness it basically just means the board believes in spending shareholder money on their own personal political opinions. High ESG means more money wasted on stuff you may not even agree with. I don't go out of my way to look but if it's a company I'm meh on but still considering then I'd count a high ESG score against it.

Tesla has a higher overall rating of A and Exxon has a lower BBB rating. So at the onset you're wrong but each industry is rated by different factors because not every industry is the same. Exxon would need to be compared to Chevron and Tesla to GM for a comparable comparison. You wouldn't compare Exxon's and Tesla's financial statements, same goes for ESG scores. Use ESG scores as just another metric to help asses long term investment value. Most people complaining about ESG don't understand it.

Im not defending Chapek...He kinda sucks...But he had an impossible job due to Iger installing woke ideology to placate politicians and ESG investors(thats gonna backfire). Iger pushed Chapek to the top of the ladder. It would take the next CEO 5 years and a supportive board to remove the bad woke leaders so good content could be made and then it will take 2-3 years after that to see profitability on streaming. That is 9 years in a best case scenario....9 years to be a company anyone wants to buy. Now you will need to worry about heavy shorts and big investors booking. Stock is off a few bucks in an otherwise strong day in the market...That is not a ringing endorsement of Iger and now that all of the morons who bought yesterday are out of the way, watch it bleed.

It's only as complicated as you want to make it. Fundamentally you basically just need ETFs to cover the world. So pick a total US stock market, total ex-US stock market, or just plainly a total global stock market. Any other product is there because the company that made it wants to earn more money through expense fees. The expense ratio on a total global stock market ETF is basically nothing, but it'll be 10 times higher for a semiconductor ETF or some ESG thematic ETF. Just pick the company (say Vanguard), pick the level of diversity (say US only), then pick the 100% US stock market ETF (in this case, VTI). That's it.

Due to misguided ESG policies and the cyclical nature of the commodity, oil companies have been underinvesting in exploration for years and reserves have not been replaced at the rate they are being consumed. Crude prices now are currently lower than where they were pre-Ukraine invasion. The sanctions didn’t reduce oil production; it just bifurcated some of the supply. US inflation is lower than it should be because we have the reserve currency and recent rate hikes have made the DXY soar.

This is just called efficiency. 83% of a cow's lifetime feed is [forage](https://youtu.be/PoZtMKtUeME?t=755) as part of the same [soil cycle](https://i.imgur.com/fzq0Xg1.jpg) that's been going on since the beginning of time. The idea the world is starving or going to meltdown because we feed some corn trash to cows the last couple months of their lives has become widespread lunacy. If you want the actual cause of famine and shortages it's the ESG people trying to eliminate ruminants, natural gas, fertilizer usage, and nuclear power.

They must all be F2M, because we need to be sensitive to the consumer but the firm should have competitive egos. Just be prepared that the M2F are going to get real loud next cycle and you’ll lose ESG points for having a plexiglass ceiling

Fossil fuel stocks are, rightly or wrongly, being divested by many managed funds, pension funds, sovereign wealth funds etc. for ESG purposes. Hence downward pressure on prices. I'd be reluctant to fight that tide.

A score of 50 out of 100 is also terrible for governance and ussually an indication of internal control deficiencies which FTX was full of. Yes, ESG ratings can be subjective AF. Also, the agencies have started collecting data just to collect it and have no idea how to analyze it. However, this low governance score for FTX was an accurate red flag.

ESG is a major factor. Low revenue/profits over the past few years due to low Crude pricing is another. Fascination with Tech and Growth over the past ten years is another. But there time is now.

Cost of operation is near constant. Income is decided by market price (duh). Have a look at oil price charts, and you'll see it fluctuates. When prices drop, they can drop fast. They can go below cost of operation. Right now, prices are high. That has an adverse effect on the global economy, which in turn reduces demand, which then leads to lower prices. Oil prices can stay high, but if they don't you'll be left with poor performance on your stock. Many funds and investors have ESG requirements that exclude oil companies. The net effect of all this is you have a set of stocks that are risky, and in relatively low demand. If you're in early you'll make good money, if you're in late you'll be making a bad in estment. It's a cyclical business.
