  8. Can we talk about the rampant fraud? (19/02/2021 - Reddit Stocks)
    Reddit, twitter and discord are packed full of stocks that have never made a profit, company has changed names time after time after lawsuit after lawsuit, shell companies merging with somewhat legit companies (of course never profitable), underwrite after underwrite after bridge note. Transactions with my wife that happens to own this other LLC buying stock in the company I just happen to become CEO of a year later, of course the underwriter happens to be the same as many other shady deals for my other companies that I diluted to fuck and filed bankruptcy on.

  17. Should I take part in a class action lawsuit against a company I invested in? (06/05/2021 - Reddit Stocks)
    I invested $100 into Canoo(GOEV) and the stock dropped like crazy. When I researched why I saw there is a class action suit against them due to defrauding investors. Is there any major downside to joining the lawsuit? I expect to get maybe 5 bucks in a couple years which is cool I guess. But is there any reason I shouldn’t join the lawsuit? I don’t plan on suing them myself. Just don’t want to face any legal payback or anything like that.   submitted by   /u/VicVinegar-Bodyguard [link]   [comments]

  28. Trying to find the next big growth stock is absolutely moronic and a good way to lose money (11/05/2021 - Reddit Stocks)
    Since the 2020 bull-run, I have been seeing a rising trend on social, and especially on Reddit, of people looking to buy deep into speculative stocks. It seems that each individual small-cap growth stock that is at least remotely known has some cult-like following attached it, convinced it will be the next FAANG. Aside from some the obvious points, such as small-cap growth being prone to manipulation and pump n dump because of their small market cap, the historical data really shows picking winners is next to impossible. According to a 2018 quantitative research report from Hendrik Bessembinder, the best performing 4% of listed companies drove the entire returns of the stock market since 1926. The remaining 96% of stocks collectively were outperformed by US Treasury Bills. Statistically, you are likely to be better off not investing your money than you would be taking your chances on 96% of the stock market. Your odds are even worse when you go hunting for the 1,000+ listed U.S. small-cap growth stocks. You have better chances of finding a needle in a haystack. I cannot understand how this mindset of "finding the next Amazon" has taken such great hold and now everyone thinks their "DD" is completely infallible if they "believe in the stock" and "hold it long term." Confirmation bias, survival bias, and the endowment effect have run rampant, and a lot people who do not know what they are doing are going to (or already have) lost a lot of money they cannot afford to lose.   submitted by   /u/donemessedup123 [link]   [comments]

  34. The 6 Biggest Pitfalls for Investors & How to Avoid Them (12/02/2021 - Reddit Stocks)
    With lots of new and eager investors joining the reddit stocks/investing communities lately, I wanted to share a great article that I just read that I thought could help out many of you. If anything it can serve as a reminder for all of us. Kudos to you on educating yourselves and working towards a brighter future. Key takeaways Natural human instincts often undermine our success as investors. Common pitfalls include aversion to loss and ambiguity, following the crowd, and focusing on information that's recent or confirms what we already believe. Antidotes include seeking out alternative information, doing your research, and developing a long-term financial plan that you can stick with. Avoid losses at all costs: Loss aversion "I am the greatest!" Confirmation bias Getting stuck on the first thing you see: Anchoring bias The breaking news problem: Recency bias There's safety in numbers ... right? Herding bias The devil you know: Ambiguity aversion   submitted by   /u/gentwithin [link]   [comments]

  37. Factbox-Big Tech wins two battles in fight with U.S. antitrust enforcers (29/06/2021 - Reddit Stock Market)
    Factbox-Big Tech wins two battles in fight with U.S. antitrust enforcers | Reuters By Diane Bartz The logos of Amazon, Apple, Facebook and Google in a combination photo Below are updates on the status of major U.S. and state government lawsuits and investigations regarding Big Tech. Two lawsuits against Facebook: In a stunning defeat, Judge James Boasberg said the Federal Trade Commission - which had sued Facebook in December asking that Facebook be forced to sell WhatsApp and Instagram - failed to show that Facebook had monopoly power in the social-networking market, among other problems. He said, however, the FTC could file a new complaint by July 29. He threw out a related state lawsuit entirely, saying that the attorneys general had waited too long. They are looking at their options. Three lawsuits against Google, and a fourth to come The U.S. Justice Department sued Alphabet Inc’s Google in October, accusing the $1 trillion company of illegally using its market muscle to hobble rivals. A trial date was set for Sept. 12, 2023. A lawsuit by 38 U.S. states and territories accuses Google of abusing its market power to try to make its search engine as dominant inside cars, TVs and speakers as it is in phones. This was consolidated with the federal lawsuit for purposes of discovery. Texas, backed by other states, filed a separate lawsuit against Google, accusing it of breaking antitrust law in how it runs its online advertising business. A group of state attorneys general is readying a lawsuit against Google this summer which would accuse it of violating antitrust law in running its mobile app store, according to three sources familiar with the matter. Justice Department investigates Apple: This probe, revealed in June 2019, appears to focus on Apple Inc’s app store. Some app developers have accused Apple of introducing new products very similar to existing apps created by other developers and sold in the Apple Store, and then trying to banish the older apps from the store because they compete with Apple’s new product. Apple says it seeks to have only the highest-quality apps in the app store. Justice Department probing Facebook and Amazon: In July 2019, the Justice Department said it was expanding its Big Tech probes to include “search, social media, and some retail services online” - an apparent reference to Facebook and Amazon.com Inc. Federal Trade Commission on Amazon: In its investigation of Amazon, the FTC is likely looking at the inherent conflict of interest of Amazon competing with small sellers on its marketplace platform, including allegations that it used information from sellers on its platform to decide what products it would introduce.   submitted by   /u/SavannahSmiles_ [link]   [comments]

I’ve got to say, as unethical as they are, they are the most undervalued big tech bc of how much negativity surrounds them. Been long FB for a decade+ and have always had my doubts, but in the end, I don’t see the US breaking up one if its most profitable and innovative businesses.
