(Reposting because auto-mod are my first post) China COVID lockdown primarily. Also recession concerns. Mining stocks fluctuate heavily with ore or metal market pricing. Costs of production (per ton/pound/etc.) are relatively fixed for a given mine at a given point in it's lifespan, but ore sales are mostly a spot market, rather than a fixed price on a LTA. So miners behave similar to oil companies - price goes up and they print money, price goes down and the highest cost producers get squeezed out. Except it takes even longer than oil drilling to bring a new mine online As an example, we'll use the price of [iron ore](https://tradingeconomics.com/commodity/iron-ore). The long term trend has been a gradual rise after bottoming out during the recovery from the 2008 recession due to over investment/mine construction outpacing demand. **[Long term prospectus]:** Miners have some of the same headwinds that oil producers have - both got burned hard by the supply gluts ~2014-18 and are more hesitant about long-term over-investing in capacity, *and* it has become much more difficult to finance projects. Equity investors are demanding dividends or buybacks instead of chasing capacity, and banks are refusing to fund projects with debt unless they are lower risk without as much leverage. And the environmental movement has made it hard to build new mines and ESG has choked out many banks from funding mineral extraction at all. Except oil/nat. gas demand long term will be supplanted in part by renewables - raw materials will not. Given the current market conditions demand will outpace supply and prices are likely to drive up above the long-run average. This is widely accepted projection, especially for certain metals (nickel, copper, nickel, cobalt, nickel). But it certainly doesn't look priced in. Which means a lot of printing money in that industry. **[Regarding stock pullback last ~1 month]:** China is one of the biggest consumers of iron ore (as well as many other metals). The COVID lockdown in parts of China caused a lot of ore and metal prices to nosedive due to both realized and expected loss of demand. Assuming China gets out of their COVID lockdown without the economy tanking or the bottom falling out of their housing market ("it's a bubble") then raw materials prices will rebound. Shit ain't serious (so long as China's economy survives). There are certainly macro risks with mining exposure, but that's true of everything. My personal risk-profile is unfortunately doubled up because GOGL is a [dry-bulk freighter](https://en.m.wikipedia.org/wiki/Bulk_carrier) primarily, and bulk shipping demand for most purposes is pegged to sales volumes of raw materials. Still ticked at myself for trying to time the bottom the iron ore dip when entering VALE. Could have bought at $12 but I got greedy (I noted this in my tracking file as a buy 16-Nov-22 @$12.11 but decided to sit and see if it would drop further).

Nothing is confirmed at this point. It's someone making an allegation. I 100% don't condone any type of behavior like that, but let's see what evidence comes out. ...but if I was wearing my conspiracy theory hat for fun (which I dont normally do), the timing seems a little bizarre given that: 1) This administration has been very obviously against Tesla/Elon the way it shunned Tesla publicly and tried to promote Mary Barra and GM as the leader in the EV space....clearly not even remotely true and kind of embarrassing to watch our president refuse for weeks to even mention Tesla by name. 2) Anti-Tesla, Missy Cummings, was appointed to a key advisory role at the NHTS and is against tesla's autopilot technology. This is a big area of future growth for Tesla. 3) Elon decides wants to buy Twitter and open it up and said Trump should be allowed on the platform. He also said he switched form Democrat to Republican. 4) Elon's acquisition of Twitter relies on the value Tesla shares for his ability to raise enough capital ( I believe...correct me if I am wrong) 5) S&P ESG dropped Tesla citing one of the reasons as “lack of a low-carbon strategy” which is essentially what the entirety of Tesla is about. ​ This might sound crazy, but it seems like this administration has been very anti-Tesla and probably was freaking out about Twitter allowing Trump back on the platform and being controlled by Musk, so given the acquisition was linked to Musk's Tesla share value, if Tesla stock tanks, then Musk can't buy Twitter and it keeps remaining censored. Before my inbox blows up with unsolicited hatred. I will say I own a Tesla and I love their vehicles and I and a few shares that I am holding, but nothing substantial. I think Musk is a bit of a loose canon and is both an asset and a risk for Tesla even though he's a product visionary, I sometimes wish he would lay off twitter as often times it hurts more than it helps.

ESG is bullshit and is creating more damage than good despite good intentions from some - others have nefarious goals with it. Glad Tesla is out. We are in a bear market - inflation makes it almost impossible to make good investment decisions and the impending recession necessary to stymie it is now being factored in. Tesla is also hard to value - a big chunk of its market cap is in expectations of future growth and tech innovation. I’m still long and staying long but it’s only about 5% of my portfolio so I can stay put. Otherwise I am slowly going back into cash during those daily morning bear market upswings followed by a worse crash at the end of the day than yesterday… :(

All information needs to be published. Its about transparency. Tesla isnt even publishings its emissions. Yes, you heard it right, check it! And thats the problem: these EV companies think they are so super green, that they dont care about the rest. On the other side the most gray companies know exactly that they have to take an afford to look as sustainable as possible. Therefore they really do their homework. So instead of crying like a baby, Elon should just hire some people and start cooperating with the ESG rating agencies and deliver all data they need. Thats all that needs to be done.

Reuters: >Some, like Musk, believe the ratings should reward companies that do the most for the planet and society. Others, including firms like S&P that produce the scores, say they are meant to show how much risk a company's stock faces from ESG factors. This explains why some companies that are major contributors to climate change, such as Exxon Corp (XOM.N), are allowed to stay in an ESG index if they can show they are taking actions to reduce that risk. "Ultimately ESG is a way of identifying and trying to quantify risk. So it's basically risk mitigation," said Chi Chan, portfolio manager at Federated Hermes. "Effectively Musk is conflating ESG with sustainability." Mark Tinker, chief investment officer at Toscafund Hong Kong, said Musk "rightly pointed out" that societal and corporate governance considerations are being used "for political driven cancelling" and that a company's contribution to the environment can also "mean what you want it to." "The whole thing is very subjective," Tinker said.

Study what your stocks are doing in the real world. of you need to make a move, do the best you can to make lateral moves. On your company stock, see what the company is up to and if it's doing anything to keep up with the security environment, by all means stay with it. This field is going nowhere but up. Old company or new. In fact, I'm more likely to stay with "tried and true" companies that are maintaining than newer companies that have more risk because of the way customers approach security. Study your etfs and make sure you know what they are invested in for the long haul. I recently discovered one of mine had a good bit in Russia and had positions in companies with deplorable environmental histories. Not to state a political position, but investments like that are going to be hard to come back from in any rebound. They have said they plan to liquidate those gradually. I don't fully trust their judgment on what they are going to do with those liquidation funds, so I moved half into an etf that had a history of more stability, no Russia, less China (only solid multi-nationals) and better ESG ratings. I researched it to death and I'm breaking even on that transfer, with a slower decline rate. Just saying that making changes in this market is not necessarily panic selling. Even though everything is in decline, not everything is equal. Sometimes moving money around may be what you need to do to prepare the rebound.

China slowdown is not as bad as you would expect, that factory is exporting in all Asia, Asutralia plus Europe. In the EU the real delivery times are more than 6 months. I am more concerned about Elon messing up with the higher circles who have enough money to fuck him up bad. First Tesla pulled out from ESG index, allegations of sexual misconduct, and who knows what comes out of the Twitter fiasco, you can bet the SEC will surely find something to take on him.

S&P ESG hit it dead on. The index isn’t about who’s saving the planet, it’s what companies are sustainable. There’s a lot of systemic risk to Tesla stock. I’d argue Elon has singlehandedly invented more risk to the stock out of thin air in the last month than the crash investigations, racial discrimination lawsuits, and worker exploitation suit put together.

The people assessing the social ESG scores seems to be going down the same rabbit hole, which the fin credit rating agencies did, back in 2008. Doesn't necessarily mean that ESG in itself is a scam.

The fundamental CONCEPT of ESG investing is sound, but the IMPLEMENTATION of it is flawed. Let’s set aside the activist investors who only want to invest in “good” companies, and talk about what looking at ESG does. When you are putting millions or billions of dollars to work investing in a company, part of that decision is analyzing the risk factors. Environmental, Social, and Governance policies in a company are absolutely something that should be accounted for. If a company isn’t following good ESG practices, it leaves them open to litigation and is a liability. Investing in companies with good ESG scores is supposed to limit those liabilities. The problem is when humans try to weight the inputs. We all have biases, and it is stupid to try. Also: politics.

That's not even a criticism of oil - we need it to do stuff, but dressing it up as environmentally friendly because they employ a diverse (i.e. outsourced to low income countries) workforce is absurd. Every minute spent filling in ESG forms would be better served picking up litter.

I did some really shitty analysis on oil back [here](https://purplefloyd.substack.com/p/hey-virgins-oil?s=w) and I now worry there may be a structural deficit from all the ESG shit policy the US was pushing. Also, China is re-opening now

If you’re looking for ESG ratings, you need to look at the top 3 in the space, MSCI, Sustainalytics, and ISS, not the S&P.

When your employer tries to monitor wellness and safety, it is actually collecting data to demonstrate how well it's performing on ESG metrics. The "S" of ESG = Social, and this is where HUMAN CAPITAL figures in. Are you a good global citizen? Do you use the appropriate pronouns? Is your circle of friends inclusive enough? Did you eat too much beef this month? Do you follow the Noahide Law? Your EMPLOYER will have an interest in retaining only those employees who can answer these types of questions in the way that BlackRock says they ought to be answered. If you can't do that, you are a HUMAN LIABILITY. That is - UNTIL a "social entreprenuer" comes along with a re-education app that will nudge you into better attitudes and behaviors. Backed by an impact investor and a Pay for Success contract with the government, the social entreprenuer will turn HUMAN LIABILITIES into IMPACT OPPORTUNITIES. Once they have everyone following the Global Goals, they'll pick a new set of benchmarks, say, Megaregional Goals. And then they'll declare the newly-improved HUMAN CAPITAL to be HUMAN LIABILITIES, and then IMPACT OPPORTUNITIES. Over and over and over again. One way to have a sustainable economy is to attach profits to the never-ending process of re-educating the workforce. ◾◾◾◾ Larry Fink and WEF Great Reset In 2019 Larry Fink joined the Board of the Davos World Economic Forum, the Swiss-based organization that for some 40 years has advanced economic globalization. Fink, who is close to the WEF’s technocrat head, Klaus Schwab, of Great Reset notoriety, now stands positioned to use the huge weight of BlackRock to create what is potentially, if it doesn’t collapse before, the world’s largest Ponzi scam, ESG corporate investing. Fink with $9 trillion to leverage is pushing the greatest shift of capital in history into a scam known as ESG Investing. The UN “sustainable economy” agenda is being realized quietly by the very same global banks which have created the financial crises in 2008. This time they are preparing the Klaus Schwab WEF Great Reset by steering hundreds of billions and soon trillions in investment to their hand-picked “woke” companies, and away from the “not woke” such as oil and gas companies or coal. BlackRock since 2018 has been in the forefront to create a new investment infrastructure that picks “winners” or “losers” for investment according to how serious that company is about ESG—Environment, Social values and Governance. For example a company gets positive ratings for the seriousness of its hiring gender diverse management and employees, or takes measures to eliminate their carbon “footprint” by making their energy sources green or sustainable to use the UN term. How corporations contribute to a global sustainable governance is the most vague of the ESG, and could include anything from corporate donations to Black Lives Matter to supporting UN agencies such as WHO. Oil companies like ExxonMobil or coal companies no matter how clear are doomed as Fink and friends now promote their financial Great Reset or Green New Deal. This is why he cut a deal with the Biden presidency in 2019. Follow the money. And we can expect that the New York Times will cheer BlackRock on as it destroys the world financial structures. Since 2017 BlackRock has been the paper’s largest shareholder. Carlos Slim was second largest. Even Carl Icahn, a ruthless Wall Street asset stripper, once called BlackRock, “an extremely dangerous company… I used to say, you know, the mafia has a better code of ethics than you guys.”

Salty about ESG.

I am baffled that people are just now realizing that ESG is a scam.

ESG is a gimmick. It’s being shoved down our throats while asset managers swear the market wants it. It’s a political tool that can be used to get companies to jump through hoops or punish them.

ESG always has been a scam

What a BS! Exxon is ESG, my ass it’s, corrupt system to keep reaping off people that actually are ESG and hurt environment by supporting dirty oil that use loopholes. It looks Musk was right in predicting attacks on him next few months!
