FTC complaints from real estate agents rising as some catch Zillow and Co selling back log of junk contacts as "hot vetted Buyer leads". Is this the hidden reason why ZG has continued to fall 10x faster than other housing stocks? What hap

Reddit Stock Market

10/06/2021 - 23:10

This is the word from Utah where one of the USA's most desirable but most misunderstood real estate markets is located. 18,000 "Realtors" per 3 Million people (1/166 ratio), most Utah "Realtors" don't have an active license for more than two years and many never even do a transaction. (Good questions to ask when exploring that market). This makes it a prime feeding ground for Zillow and Co (also owns Trulia & Streeteasy). Would be interesting to hear from other real estate agents/brokers in other states about what leads Zillow is selling them. Apparently they lock Realtors in to 6 month contracts for $10,000-$50,000 then slowly trickle a couple dozen of these junk leads to them during that time. If this is happening nationally it might be time to short ZG...   submitted by   /u/BringATwenty [link]   [comments]

  1. Insight into ZG's (Zillow/Trulia/Streeteasy) secret tactics may be the hidden reason why it continues to 'correct' way faster than other housing stocks. Is 'correct' the right word though? (14/06/2021 - Reddit Stock Market)
    Here's a few of Zillow's bait-and-switch tactics that I've shared with the Federal Trade Commission and am doing what I can to make sure the SEC is aware of it too: To con thousands of real estate agent's into contracts with Zillow that are a minimum of 3 months long and cost a minimum of $10,000-$50,000+ ($300-$500 for each "lead") Zillow Sales Executives are secretly: -Describing Zillow's backlog of old phone numbers and emails as "NEW hot vetted Buyer leads". -Describing contact information for people who already have real estate agents and try to book appointments through Zillow as "NEW hot vetted Buyer leads" -Describing contact information for people who are looking at rentals as "NEW hot vetted Buyer leads" -Describing contact information for people who can't even get a loan as "NEW hot vetted Buyer leads" -Describing contact information for people who haven't even applied for a loan as "NEW hot vetted Buyer leads". -Describing contact information for people who contacted Zillow on behalf of others as "NEW hot vetted Buyer leads" -Describing contact information for people who message Zillow things like "I don't understand what this is" as "NEW hot vetted Buyer leads" Rather than spending $10,000 for 30 of Zillow's junk phone numbers sold to them as "NEW hot Buyer leads" any real estate agent can just pick up a phone book for free (and get thousands more numbers too.) -Zillow also uses software to manipulate the "lead" interface numbers. This includes calling some agents as many as 6 times in 90 minutes after not calling for more than a week to claim it tried to send the agent 6 "NEW hot vetted Buyer leads". A cost to the agent of $2000-$3000+ -The software also can't do math as it portrays percentages in Zillows favor in an attempt to make an experienced agent look bad and further justify Zillow's dark ways. Additionally, Zillow's Sales Executives, Regional Sales Managers and "Business Consultants" refuse to acknowledge concerns about these tactics. Source: Dear friend is an experienced developer and residential/commercial agent and this is what I've seen ZG do to him. Can't imagine how many thousands of less experienced agents are getting taken to the cleaners by ZG. If anyone at Zillow reads this and disagrees, please DM me for proof.   submitted by   /u/FaithFirstMeSecond [link]   [comments]

  2. Remember, it doesn't matter how much a stock goes up, what matters is how much more it goes up than the index (26/03/2021 - Reddit Stocks)
    I've seen a lot of comments along the lines of "tech stocks are down, but they'll go back up, there's no reason not to buy them" but that line of thinking is flawed. Of course tech stocks will go back up, but what's important to your returns is if you think they will rise faster than whatever index you choose to compare them too. Because if they don't, you could have just bought that index fund, had less risk, less work, and better returns. You should always be thinking about your stock purchases in the context of "Do I think this will beat the index?" not "Do I think this will go up in the future?"   submitted by   /u/flobbley [link]   [comments]

    Hindsight sight is 20/20 with now the pandemic & then housing crisis of 2008 , luckily I placed my bet on stocks then real estate property. Seems like there is more risk in real estate then before, now with climate change increasing. I'm a lazy investor to deal with real estate tenants, repairs, maintenance, taxes, time, and having cash flow drained out. I do believe in real estate investment as primary housing, not as investment property. I could be wrong, only advantage for real estate is leverage?

  4. Any companies trying to disrupt the real estate brokage market in the US? (27/03/2021 - Reddit Stocks)
    Any stocks trying to disrupt the real estate agent market? No matter what a parasite real estate agents tell you - There is no way angent can add 5-6% (Their commision) value to a $1.000.000 house or not even a $500.000 house. I live in Denmark, and a normal agent fee for a $1.000.000 house would be around $10.000-$15.000 (And it’s pretty close to fixed may I add), but in the US the fee is more than 4x that, and it’s percentage based. How come? There is a service so somewhat new service were some good friends of ours sold their $1.300.000 house for only $3.000 in real estate commisions. They did everything for them A-Z, took pictures, marketed it, listed it online (Our own version of Zillow) and on MLS. They total cost for selling their house was around $4.500 after Lawyer fees and inspection fees. The service here is called Brikk - Link is in danish, so if you want proof: https://www.brikk.dk/ You don’t even need an Agent, and then the price gets knocked down to $2.000, and you just have to show around the house yourself. Is the something similair in the US for which is investable. I don’t really care if it’s big or small. Startups doing funding rounds also interest me, and some small OTC companies wouldn’t hurt looking into.   submitted by   /u/deniz2306 [link]   [comments]

I was just scrolling through "top losers" (biggest stock losses on the last trading day, so Friday in this case) on Wealthsimple and 90% of the companies are "biotech", "pharma", "therapeutics", "labs", "oncology". And they're all down by a significant amount (8%-30%). Any reason why? Should I look at buying the dip? To add to the mystery, some similar companies are skyrocketing (Seelos therapeutics is up over 50%), and a couple others are up like 15%.

    During the year, SPWR has more than doubled in price from ~25USD to ~55 USD and then dropped back down to 30 USD. Can someone help me identify why the sudden spike of the price?

  10. Why do people always seem to be saying the market will crash soon? (18/03/2021 - Reddit Stocks)
    I know the arguments that the market is highly overvalued right now and there is a lot of "easy" money going into stocks. But it seems there are always people sounding off alarms about possible imminent crashes. Going back to 2016, I remember many people saying that real estate was in a bubble. But housing prices have kept going up relentlessly. But now I see a lot of big names in investing saying the market will crash, from Charlie Munger, Ray Dalio, Warren Buffet, etc. are all saying markets are unreasonably high. Is it normal for there to be so many doom preachers or is there really something to worry about for the near future?   submitted by   /u/jmus9 [link]   [comments]

  11. Peter Lynch's 10 mistakes every investor makes (08/06/2021 - Reddit Stocks)
    "It can't go any lower." Never make such an assumption. A bad company can and will go lower. "How much higher can it go?" Selling too early just because a stock goes up. "They always come back" Don't assume a stock price will rebound, look at the fundamentals not the price. "How much can I lose?" A cheap stock price doesn't = a good value. You can lose % at any price. "It's always darkest before dawn." It's a terrible business but it's down 80%! Buy at a discount? no, it still has room to drop. "I will sell after rebound" Buy at $10, it falls to $6, and you think "If it goes back to $10 I'll sell. Well if you think that you should buy more! A key to remember, the stock doesn't know you own it. It may never get to $10 again as well. Don't take it personal. Make decisions based on fundamentals. "Don't worry, I own conservative stocks" (utilities...) "Look at the money I lost because I didn't buy" FOMO? Hundreds of stocks go up double digits. Don't worry about other stocks. Focus on ones you know. You can't lose money on a stock you don't own. "Stock is up I must be right / Stock is down I must be wrong." Stocks go up and down a lot each year. The ups and downs don't mean much in the short term. Avoid longshots. Investing based on rumors, comments, anything other than sound financial analysis and valuation. Peter Lynch worked at Fidelity and is has great wisdom.   submitted by   /u/LegendLarrynumero1 [link]   [comments]

  13. Growth Stock Valuation? "Downside"? (26/02/2021 - Reddit Stock Market)
    Looking over my growth stocks during this downturn, some of them are drilling like they want to get into the Chinese market the hard way, but others found oddly specific bottoms. TA and TA-driven articles could draw dozens of resistance lines and speculate but it seems like they fell to very specific levels and stopped. And it seems like they held, or returned to those levels even after further red days where other stocks continued to fall. If so many investors / traders / MM's / institutions all stopped selling and started buying around the same level, it follows that they must have had a similar reason for that level calculated in advance, right? I want an invite to that party. Even if it's just some vocabulary I'm missing, that I could google to teach myself. I've been reading about stock valuation but so far that seems mostly to be about value stocks and long standing stable companies. Looking for a starting point for learning how they do this with growth stocks. PLTR @ 23ish NIO @ 45ish ACTC @ 21ish The whole MJ sector is like this too. They'll pop and fall and find an oddly specific new level very quickly.   submitted by   /u/Go4Bert [link]   [comments]

    Why do you invest in Stocks? Yes of course for money…but why? I am looking for the emotional answers. The real deep down reasons. A great story! The question seems to have obvious answers, like "to grow my money!" or "to be wealthy!" If we could avoid those answers just for this topic. But I am looking for the emotional why, the real reason why people want to invest or grow their money. During these times it seems like there is always another hidden layer… Do you invest to protect your future, so you can retire comfortably? Do you want to make sure you have the money to pay for your child's education? Do you want to prepare for possible sickness and hospital bills when you are old? Do you want to travel, see the world, enjoy luxuries? Do you just want to escape the rat race and have the option to do what you want to do? My emotional why, is to give my family a better future. To be able to afford a home where we can grow together and of course stop having to pay rent. What is your emotional why? I would love to hear from all of you.

  16. The Market Is Unpredictable And Stocks Going Down Is Normal (07/05/2021 - Reddit Stocks)
    Since the March lows, it seems a lot of the stocks have gone up +100% in one year which is very abnormal and does not happen in "regular" years. We have seen this, especially in the tech sector. We have seen a bit of a pull back in the tech sector with stocks going down 10- 20% or more since February. You must remember that if a stock goes up 100% and falls by 20% that is still a great return if you got in early. However, if you FOMO'd in many cases or bought into the hype, you must understand that this can happen. The market is unpredictable right now and it's important to invest in stocks that you believe are good and not look for a quick book if you are worried about losing money. Stocks don't go up forever and in many cases, they may fall because the stock is going back to its "fundamentals".   submitted by   /u/moneytobemade8 [link]   [comments]

  20. "transferring" by selling and rebuying. (07/06/2021 - Reddit Stocks)
    I know that I can put in a transfer request from 1 brokerage to another. but from my understanding, that results in a small period of "limbo" where its not invested. which means, after this timeframe, at whatever price it lands before the cash gets transferred over, is what you "bought" back in (with no recourse on taxes). to avoid this, i was wondering if its a bad idea to do a manual transfer yourself. the only downside i can think of is short term tax vs long term. but these shares in question are already long term capital gains. so is there anything "bad" about simply fully closing my position at brokerage A, and simply "rebuying" the same amount at brokerage B?   submitted by   /u/AIONisMINE [link]   [comments]

Rule 8: Memes only on weekends. // When has that stopped? - Seeing this sub flooded by shit AMC Memes Can this sub please come back to in depth DD for stocks? That will be a hard job for the mods, but I hope they will find a solution. Maybe they can borrow the "Satori" Technology from r/Superstonk . And I don't think "Meme Stocks" are the reason for this shift in paradigm. In my opinion Hedge Funds realised, that instead of telling us through CNBC what to buy, so they can fuck us over, they added reddit to their repertoire.

  22. "Time In The Market" vs. "Its OK to take profits" (14/06/2021 - Reddit Stocks)
    Obviously these popular contradictory statements are thrown around quite a lot. I've been investing in some blue chip stocks like AAPL that seem to go nowhere. I bought Apple at 125.00 last August and in hindsight it seems like it would have been to good to sell it on Jan 25 @ 145.00, but I've been subscribing to the mindsight of "time in the market" trumps "timing the market". SO how do you guys know when to sell and whether it makes sense to just hold and look at it in 5 years? PS. I've also heard people talk about selling before earnings and buying the dip.

At first I was picking good dividend stocks then I changed my mind to just strong blue chip stocks that I thought would have steady growth. Every 2 weeks I put 200 into my account and buy some of those I picked. I have no real rhyme or reason. Im up 10% in 3 months buy feel like I got lucky. I don't plan on selling anything anytime soon and then doubt myself because I feel like I should take profits. How do you all decide what to buy? How do you decide to sell?

    I am so sick and tired of reading all of these moronic posts by people with the emotional intelligence of the average third-grader. "Is the market crashing?," "Should I sell this meme stock for $400/share less than I bought it?," It's like being surrendered by a bunch of mentally r****** parrots (I got auto-modded for using the ole r-word. Apparently, that's evil these days). "Why did the market fall 0.000001% today?," "What's the best undervalued stock right now that's going to quadruple in value within the next 3 days?" And then there's the equally mentally-stunted advice givers. "This stock ran up three thousand percent in 2 days and now it's down 10 cents - Buy. The. Dip." Or if the market falls immediately someone has to come and reassure us that's it's gonna go back up and "red days are healthy." No shit, Sherlock. Or the oft repeated "Time in the market is better than timing the market." No, it's not if they're buying shit stocks. These idiots are buying meme stocks at ATH's and then get confused why they're loosing money once the pump is over. Shut the fuck up already. Jesus. Grow some balls or get out of the market. And a read book instead of trying to syphon knowledge out of other idiots that are all just regurgitating the same empty platitudes. Rant over.

If you're scared and sell you'll be sorry you did and you'll but high again and the next red day you see you'll sell low again at will stay in a cycle losing money. Remember!

If you're not gonna buy or sell why even look at it? Go for a run, walk, build a model car, binge watch a new show, get a side hustle so you have more money to buy more stocks.

I'm sitting on stocks and a house, both up absurd amounts. Every day I wonder why the hell I'm not just selling it all, buying a super cheap cash house, and retiring while I go explore the world. Like i'm going to be kicking myself when the big one happens and everything tumbles down. But I've been feeling that for 5 years now and even more in the last year with how stupid everything has gotten and it never comes. The covid "Crash" was a joke looking back and I'm glad I didn't pull out. I have cousins, aunts, uncles, everyone all talking about stocks now like it's suddenly mainstream. Is there any reason why it only goes up? If you look at the S&P history, the last few crashes were good 7 year long drops before recovery. From the 2008 crash onward though it has been straight up nonstop. It's almost freaky to look at with how much of a rise it has seen. Are there any signs or symptoms or legit reasons for this? It can't go up forever right?   submitted by   /u/Vanderal [link]   [comments]

  34. "Sell in May and go away?" (03/06/2021 - Reddit Stocks)
    We have all heard that saying and I have lived it through more summers than I like to think. What opinions do y'all have? I'm selling some call credit spreads on the indices this week. Today I got a 50-50 risk return on a DIA spread. I'm not selling my stocks, so if I'm wrong about the options the stocks will bail me out. If the stocks go nowhere this summer I collect the premium.   submitted by   /u/Gwsb1 [link]   [comments]

  35. The first people are starting to sell out.. (19/03/2021 - Reddit Stocks)
    Im sorry for your loss but to me it's the sign of early buy-in stages. You've all heard the phrase from Rothschild: ""Buy when there's blood in the streets, even if the blood is your own" I believe that the bond yield will go up in the next 1-2 months and Nasdaq will get hit hard. When we see more of these "I sold it all", "i'm out", "Stocks is a losing game" you know it's time to buy in. No one can predict the bottom so be ready for some red days "even if the blood is your own", keep faith in your investment and you most likely will be fine in the longterm. TLDR: I'm ready to buy heavily in the next couple of months.   submitted by   /u/ruffneck007 [link]   [comments]

  37. The mini "crash" about 2 weeks or so ago... (15/02/2021 - Reddit Stock Market)
    Im pretty new to investing so I was just curious if there was any particular reason it happened like reaction to something in the news or was it just simply a minor correction that just happens from time to time? Me being so new to stocks, I had never seen so much red in one day before and it was dam near the whole stock market...but I guess in a weird way it was a good thing I had experienced it. A lot of "experts" seem to believe that we are due for a big crash sooner than later so I am doing all the research that I can to try and prepare for it. I have 90% of my life savings in a guided aggressive investment account with Merrill edge so I have no say so on the stocks they choose. I know its impossible to time it thats why I'm so conflicted bc I'm trying decide if I should move to cash...wait for the crash then get back in or just weather the storm and ride it out.   submitted by   /u/new_account54321 [link]   [comments]

  40. Novice Question - Market Corrections in the next 12-18 months (19/02/2021 - Reddit Stocks)
    People are saying that there will be massive market corrections in the next 12-18 months, after the influxes from stimulus checks etc. My question relates to the distribution of those that own stocks. If the top 1% holds 50% of stocks, and the top 10% holds 85% of stocks, and they are patient investors (ie don't need the cash), why do people think there will be a massive correction? Do people assume the rich will pull their gains out and invest in real-estate or other assets? It doesn't make sense if inflation rates are going to stay low and interest rates are going to stay low, that the rich would transfer their assets out of the stock market into real-estate. ​ Why do people think the lower middle-class can drive a huge "correction"?   submitted by   /u/Comprehensive_Set [link]   [comments]

  41. Anyone else hate the phrase "Let Your Winners Ride?" (26/05/2021 - Reddit Stocks)
    "Let your winners ride", well no fucking shit! If I knew they still had room to run, I wouldn't be selling them. This is easy to see after the fact when you've had a huge run up but to say "let your winners ride" when you have no idea if a stock is going up, down or sideways irks me.   submitted by   /u/Theking4545 [link]   [comments]

  42. For those unaware: A loss in share value doesn't mean that someone else "got your money." It just simply "disappears." (13/05/2021 - Reddit Stocks)
    It may seem like a "no brainer" to most people but stocks don't work this way. A move 5% higher might have happened over 100,000 share volume and 4 weeks of time. The following move 5% lower can happen with 10,000 share volume over 2 days time. This would mean there are 90,000 shares out there with an "unrealized loss" that has "disappeared" from their owner's portfolio after purchasing in the last 4 weeks prior. It is a common perception that "everyone selling" is the issue when a stock goes down. Sometimes it is just the fact that there are no buyers. Sellers undercut each other to get to the limited bidders price that they are willing to offering. It doesn't always take twice as many sellers to move the price down. Simply having half the buyers will do this on its own. Additional sellers are not necessarily driving the market down right now there is just a lot of hesitation to buy.   submitted by   /u/GMEgotmehere [link]   [comments]

  43. Lmnd DIP is the time to buy (02/03/2021 - Reddit Stocks)
    As one that uses Lemonade, I think they are way undervalued They will be the biggest insurance company in the world! It took them third the time of others companies to get to 1,000,000 users. And it will not stop here. "Lemonade hit the milestone about 1,500 days after its initial launch, which is about 15-45 years faster than industry leaders like State Farm, Allstate, GEICO, and USAA." https://pulse2.com/lemonade-inc-lmnd-hits-over-1-million-active-customers/ "Lemonade drops 11% after notorious short-seller says the stock should trade 43% below current levels (LMND) Lemonade's stock dropped as much as 11% on Thursday after Andrew Left's notorious short-selling fund, Citron Research, predicted the online-insurance platform will fall back to $100." https://markets.businessinsider.com/news/stocks/lemonade-stock-price-drops-short-seller-citron-research-tweet-2021-1-1029970893 Shorters, sometimes have hard time at looking past the current finance results, and I believe that this is the case with Lemonade (lmnd). Besides, they are really good company, it took my friend 3 minutes to get insurance back on his Gibson that went on fire.

  44. Anyone else uncomfortable in a bull market? (11/03/2021 - Reddit Stocks)
    As someone who likes to buy the dip and has plenty of stocks in various sectors (other than tech) they want to buy... I sense a bull market happening for at least a month or so, and then inflation popping it's head back up in May. But for whatever reason, I feel very dissatisfied and frustrated on "up" green days, and get massive FOMO when most of the stocks on my watchlist are up 3-5% and the one's at worst are in the -1-+1% range. Some people panic or get emotional when stocks go down, but I feel much more comfortable there with buying opportunities. It's times like these where I get anxious and feel I didn't do "enough" on a given day (or in prior days ESPECIALLY on down days where I bought maybe 2-3 stocks and could have in retrospect bought 5-6) especially when my portfolio only goes up maybe .25% or so. This is coming from someone who looked at stocks in past months and realized had they gotten them then, they would virtually all be at higher valuations today. Also as someone who is trying to transition out of tech into other sectors, but so far is not quite there.   submitted by   /u/BigBet0 [link]   [comments]

  45. Why are all the big names trading near identically to the market, and barely moving now? (27/04/2021 - Reddit Stocks)
    I've noticed over the last week that most of the big names (mainly Nasdaq) have all been near identically following QQQ? And also trading for pennies on $100+ stocks. Is there just next to no real volume right now? I hear talk of how "Apples trending up!" or "Tesla is dropping!". But they're all just doing the same things, on proportional charts. Theres been no reason to trade anything but QQQ or SPY cause... why? Am I missing something, or is it just cause its big earnings week? I was doing pretty good scalping options on swings from the last couple weeks, but now... after the first fluctuations off the bell the market just dies to a crawl. Nothing has been worth risking cause every move up or down just gets reversed with no momentum behind it. Nothing even moves enough to cover spreads.   submitted by   /u/MuffinMatrix [link]   [comments]

  46. What are your safe/recession stocks? (16/02/2021 - Reddit Stocks)
    EDIT.*** I should have titled this stable instead of safe/recession. I am largely a growth stock kinda guy. However, I have more cash than I can find opportunities right now and I don't want more cash than an emergency fund in the bank. As I take profits I'm looking for some "stable" stock or ETF's to put the cash in while I search more for more growth opportunities and build out my real estate portfolio. So far my best pick is VDC. Vanguard Consumer Staples Index Fund ETF. It hasn't had an unusually large runup the past year (I see that as a good thing for stability). And its made up of consumer staples as the name implies. What are your "safe/recession stocks?" What do you think of VDC? *P.S please spare me any lecture how no stocks are safe. I am willing to take that risk and this is not emergency fund money.   submitted by   /u/EricJones1231 [link]   [comments]

  47. Oracle of RedditHa (20/02/2021 - Reddit Stock Market)
    So there's a fork in the road fast approaching. It's how does this inflation trickle into the economy with everyone going back to work. There's 1 of 2 scenarios playing out right now; the real tale of the tapes for the world economy. People go back to work and inflation bleeds out of the stock market into household items/food/gas etc etc This result is super "inflation"; it's already happening in the stock market btw with these P/E ratios. Everyone piles into BTC sky rocketing it and bonds tanking and gold continuing its crash as it has death crossed both BTC and bonds. (Gold will crash I'm comparison to BTCs soar, hard line boomers will buy gold for a slight bounce back. People go back to work and they instead buy more stocks due to fomo. This results in deflation. BTC tanking or trading sideways to deflating, gold tanking even faster and bonds sky rocketing . Right now BTC and bonds are rising because people are thinking like me and realizing gold is a crappy return, btc has a hype train and we know we are right. Its either hold btc or bonds, and we're waiting to see which one we dump based on consumers going back to work.   submitted by   /u/checkmydoor [link]   [comments]

  48. No need to panic (04/03/2021 - Reddit Stocks)
    Why is the market tanking in recent weeks? First, what it isn't: Treasury yields. Don't listen to the news. This just means that no one wants to buy bonds so the price of bonds is going up to attract new investors. This happens in a healthy economy. Can't believe the fake news is really pushing this. What I would see if this was anything other than a correction: Consumer cyclical and natural resource holdings would increase with major investment firms. Positions in small cap stocks would decrease. Real estate holdings would increase. How I know these things aren't happening: It's best to track these activities through major firms and ETFs. I track SPY's holdings daily. They have teams of analysts and resources I just don't have. They're the first to know. I do not watch the news for financial information. So what is it? I see firms reorganizing portfolio's for a post-C19 market. IE, aerospace and defense stocks are going up in the same time the Nasdaq was down 9%. Travel stocks like JetBlue are also doing well in that time frame. When will it stop? Who knows, but it couldn't have been expected and it's too late to sell high and buy low now. I'm waiting it out. I have been increasing positions with remaining cash but I'm out going forward. Will tech rebound? Yes. New tech is where the money is. I see strong cross-sector growth continuing through Q3 this year. Q1 industrial is very strong so far. Many of these up and coming tech companies are going to be pushing into their manufacturing phases. How bonds work since many don't understand (I don't blame them): The "price" of bonds go down as demand goes up and goes up when the demand goes down. Think of it this way, the lower I sell my bond, the less money I have to spend in the long run as a bond "seller". As a buyer, I get more money if I buy a bond with a high rate of return vs low. So you won't sell many bonds with a low rate. Thus, if bonds need to be sold, the rate goes up. This is an indication that no one is buying them and the money is likely going to the market or being held as cash. Thus, a yield from a bond is how much money you'll make based on the rate of return. This is reflected in the Treasury Yield curve. The curve itself reacts faster with short-term bonds than long-term bonds. If they cross, this can be a bad indication of rapid market changes. The safest investment in the entire world is a US Treasury Bond. That's for two main reason: first, it's never lost anyone money; second, the US has the ability to tax the wealthiest population on the planet if anything happens. So what that means, people put their money in US bonds when they think things aren't going well. When things are going well, they get out of them and put the money back in the market.   submitted by   /u/Ok-Midnight9757 [link]   [comments]

  49. Which stocks will be most sensitive to a rising bond market? Something like "Rho", but for stocks (07/03/2021 - Reddit Stocks)
    As explained in this Forbes article (and many other places) as Treasury yields rise, stocks become less attractive (the "equity risk premium" decreases). However, since rising Treasury yields generally coincide with a growing economy, the lower equity risk premium is often offset by consumer demand etc driving up earnings and therefore share prices. But that boost isn't equally distributed throughout the market, so the rising bond market will affect some stocks more than others. So there are two variables to consider: sensitivity to a rising bond market and gains from near term economic growth. As I understand it, companies with valuations that are more heavily dependent on far future earnings will be most sensitive to interest rate hikes. That's because future cash flows have to be discounted more aggressively in an environment of rising Fed rates since it becomes more expensive to borrow money to make it to the horizon of profitability. So investors might be enticed away from growth stocks and into value stocks and increasingly profitable "risk-free" Treasuries. So the big question is which stocks will be most sensitive to a rising bond market? Are there technical indicators you can use to determine a stock's sensitivity to a rising bond market? High P/E would seem suspect, for example... The options greek "Rho" measures the price change for an option relative to the risk-free rate of interest... Is there something similar for stocks? That would be a freebie. And of those sensitive-to-rising-bond-market stocks, which ones stand to benefit the least from a booming economy? That gives us our trim list. I know I'm probably making this too simplistic. Would love to hear if anyone else is concerned about the prospect of a rising bond market and what you're doing about it.   submitted by   /u/mitch_feaster [link]   [comments]
