This #SkinInTheGame Update is painful.

And that's what makes it so important.

My portfolio hasn't looked this different in quite some time...
First, how am I doing?

🤬YTD: (37%) vs. S&P's (13%)
😡1-YR: (25%) vs. (1%)
😐3-YR: 53% vs. 40%
😀5-YR: 183% vs. 73%
😁10-YR: 315% vs. 195%

This is down huge from all-time highs.

And yet, I'm just fine with this.

A few big changes yet to be made...
I haven't been able to:

🔴Sell my $DOCU shares
🟢Buy my $UPST shares

Additionally, I will be making incremental buys of $AXON and $SHOP for the portfolio @BrianFeroldi are running at @JoinCommonstock

But here's what I own now⤵️

1/ Alternative investments are becoming ever more popular.

With more sponsors looking to cash in on the trend, an overwhelming amount of deals have an unattractive alignment of interest and a clear principal-agent problem.

One way to fix this...
2/ ... is by making agents (GPs) move closer to principals (LPs).

This requires a meaningful amount of #skininthegame (meaningful commitment as a % of the deal).

Forget industry standards like 0 to 3% commitments, which GPs often quote since it favors them (#confirmationbias).
3/ Our job as LPs (HNWIs & FOs) is to look for anomalies and no-brainer opportunities — not 99% of the cookie-cutter deals.

On Twitter, it seems most GPs are in an #echochamber.

They spend all their time discussing what they prefer, without giving a second thought about LPs.

Talvez eu passe vergonha com esse tweet, mas vou correr o risco.


Nesse nível de preço o Inter (BIDI) é, para mim, uma baita oportunidade de compra a longo prazo.

E nesse thread vou explicar o porquê!

Antes de começarmos a thread em si, um aviso:

2) Para aqueles que tiverem preguiça de ler, fiz um vídeo resumindo a análise. Segue o link:

Para começarmos essa thread (e se preparem que ela vai ser longa) vamos falar sobre o que o Inter faz brevemente.

Acho que todos conhecem ou pelo menos já ouviram falar, mas o Inter é basicamente um banco digital, com um modelo de negócios parecido com o NuBank.

Commitment to transparency and (sometimes painful) truth. Without it, no growth or evolution.

That applies to life and investing.

With that in mind, here's:

📊 Every stock I own (and how much)
📉 My investing results over time
🤔 What I plan to do

First my results:

🔴YTD: (21%) vs. S&P 500's (8%)
🔴1-Year: (11%) vs. 14%

That's a lot of under-performance. But here's why the 3-5 year time horizon is so important

🟢3-Year: 104% vs. 55%
🟢5-Year: 304% vs. 83%
🟢10-Year: 463% vs. 217%

My recent moves ⤵️

I was in Costa Rica 🇨🇷 on a "screen free" vacation.

Family got COVID, we had to stay longer. Everyone's fully recovered!

Thanks for all the well-wishes


Here's everything I own TODAY⤵️

and the week UCU is on strike, so I cant comment the pluuuumbing :)
I can tweet about the @ucu strike fund - remember Maggie Thatcher gave employers the upper hand to confiscate pay for each strike day, so academics are taking home half of their pay this month.

I 'm reflecting on this since a while.

On markets today: on one hand we're seeing ultra-specific domain models (marketplaces) and on the other end very generic/horizontal contracting platforms, such as Haier's rendanheyi and its supporting software
Haier's EMC (self-managed and self-defined multi-sided smart contracts aimed at creating a certain outcome) is a kind of *evolution* of a transaction: as transaction cost plummets complex (smart) contracts can become the new transactions, reducing the need to rely on scale.
In terms of evolution:

1. We started with complicated and dumb contracts = bureaucracies: amassing suppliers, contractualize them for the long term, the only part of the transaction that was left on the market was purchasing (consumer);

2021 has been a great year for our #BASON predictions @OraclumIS


Because in 2021, over a period of 22 weeks, we have made stunningly accurate predictions of the #markets, and made a whopping 107% return from these predictions!

A quick thread 🧵on how we did this 👇
1/ First, how does #BASON work?
We ask people where they & their friends think the markets will end up at the end of each week, while applying network analysis to control for their groupthink bias.

Here’s a video explaining it:
2/ We’ve been running the whole thing as a survey competition where we asked stock market enthusiasts to give their predictions on the weekly movements of Dow, S&P500, BTC, WTI oil price, and the 10Y yield + 4 stocks: $AAPL , $TSLA , $GME , $AMC

Uipath Insider Trades $4.5M In Company Stock… via @Yahoo || This seems the reason for today's $PATH drop. Similar #TOST drop last few days (although the #Toast insider selling agreement is a bit convoluted, at least to me :-)
I am thinking a balanced approach for insider (especially founder) selling. On one hand, they should be able to sell some stocks to maintain their lifestyle (this is same for everyone, not same level, I mean the need of cash for lifestyle). At the same time, I think they... /2
should have #skininthegame by owning most of their net-worth in the company stocks. A similar rationale for CEOs who get a lot of company stock options. But the game was usually rigged in the latter scenario because CEOs / companies' stock buyback to pop up stock price. /3

1. En 2001 ImClone se desplomó cuando se anunció que uno de sus medicamentos no había obtenido la aprobación de la FDA

Meses después la SEC denunció a múltiples empleados y familiares por vender acciones de la empresa justo antes de aquel anuncio…
2. En 2015 un empleado de Amazon compartió los resultados financieros de la empresa con un amigo antes de ser publicados.

Este amigo ganó $115,997 negociando acciones de Amazon gracias a esa información.

¡Hoy hablaremos sobre Constellation Software ( $CSU.TO )!

Para mi, una de las mejores empresas del mundo por tener un CEO que es un fuera de serie y por ser una compañía antifrágil con un gran modelo de negocio.

1.1) El negocio

Su negocio principal es el de adquirir, administrar y construir negocios de software de mercado vertical (VMS en inglés).

Se centran en empresas que proporcionen soluciones críticas a sus clientes y que abordan necesidades especificas.
1.2) El negocio

Se dedican a adquirir negocios con potencial de crecimiento, a administrarlos de manera correcta y a construirlos para que sean vacas lecheras generadoras de FCF para el grupo.

Este proceso se repite una y otra vez.

Here’s some clarity re #KR1’s share register:

Nominee co’s are set up by major brokers/custodians/etc. to aggregate individual sharehldgs, both large & in reality, Vidacos does NOT own a 25.5% stake.

And no, #WarrenBuffett does NOT have a direct/indirect hldg in KR1!
This nominee system does NOT absolve individual/inst’l investors of req’t to report major 3%+ stakes & any significant chg in hldgs...which you can track via #KR1 RNS:…

Ideally, KR1 wd also break out these stakes (on a look-through) basis for investors...
And I highlighted major #KR1 stakes in my Nov post:…

Largest hldg belongs to KR1 team itself (& Smaller Co Capital)...tht’s 15%+ in KR1’s fully diluted share capital.

That does NOT inc. 80% of their 2020 bonus to be granted in shares...

La jugada de @GBMplus, Robinhood y otros brokers de limitar las acciones procurando "proteger" a sus usuarios solo puede terminar mal...
A ver, primero entendamos que el motivo de esto con #GameStop
y #wallstreetbets es un resentimiento general a los grandes jugadores del sistema por utilizar las reglas a su favor y conveniencia...
También tenemos el hecho de que los fondos están en una situación de Asimetría Negativa: Tienen mucho que perder, los inversores individuales, NO.

A couple of days ago, Skallas wrote that true @nntaleb fans don’t quote his ideas all the time, but instead apply them to everyday life. A childish discussion, but I felt the need to say something about it because the “Taleb obsession” theme recurs often. This is my story. 👇
A few years ago, my father decided to begin manufacturing a liqueur made out of rose petals. In order to realize his idea, he took a couple of loans from the bank and became indebted to his business partners.
He had a good concept, but he failed to anticipate one small thing – that he would pass away. One afternoon while we were sitting at the table, he just died. At 53 years of age, it took only 3 minutes. An aneurism. #BlackSwan

#pensioen Pensioenakkoord is in grote lijnen uitgewerkt. Met de "standaardmethode" kunnen pensioenen worden omgezet in kapitalen. Klaar is kees! Waarom doet de polder nu ineens zo moeilijk?
Vallen de uitkomsten bij nader inzien tegen?… #FD #Pensioenen
Als buitenstaander probeer ik maar wat. De ouderen verwachten dat hun huidige pensioenniveau op peil blijft, dus géén kortingen maar wel een redelijke kans op indexatie. Moet kunnen, is hun verteld, zodra het nieuwe pensioenstelsel er is en die vervelende rekenrente weg is. >>
Maar bij een dekkingsgraad van zeg 90% krijgen ze elk bij overgang van het oude naar nieuwe stelsel een kapitaal van 90% van de waarde van hun pensioenen mee — tenminste, bij gebruik van de standaardmethode, die gebaseerd is op actuele marktwaardering.

Back in March, ppl understood that its not current #'s but future trajectory that matters. Last month, infections in US & Europe rose so rapidly that daily deaths projected to double by Nov end. Action is required now, not in another 11 weeks with a new president. ht @ExanteData Image
Better treatment but w 'epidemic momentum' deaths will go past 2000 in wks.
"I expect the US to be reporting over 2000 deaths/day in 3 weeks time. Importantly, this doesn't assume any further increases in circulation & is essentially "baked into" currently reported cases"-@trvrb Image
China in January was in much the same situation as US T'giving. A larger migration of 400 million ppl that would have been a catastrophic superspreading event. But public health prevailed on politicians. Excellent comparative thread by an epidemiologist ⬇️

$UNI #uniswap pool subsidies is a defense from vampire attacks.

The problem with the current subsidy is that it comes at the expense of the $UNI holders. Farm and dump is a problem.

My analysis and suggestions for the current situation.

The current subsidy pool choices, Stablecoin - $ETH are fantastic! It serves not only #Uniswap, but provides the deepest liquidity in DeFi.

This pool choice combined with Uniswap's network effect is healthy for the entire ecosystem.
If Uniswap doesn't incentivize Stablecoin - $ETH, then someone else will. It's a competitive environment, compete accordingly.

Incentivizing minor pools turns things extra political and invites quarrelling. I don't think it's a good idea.

Incentivize the most agnostics pool.

With the company's latest earnings report last week, Elon Musk satisfied the requirements for his 4th stock option tranche.

Here's how it all works...


At the beginning of 2018, Tesla filed a proxy statement, outlining the proposed comp plan for Musk.

He wouldn't receive a salary, options, RSUs, etc. Everything would rely on this comp plan.


The plan consists of 2 parts:

1) Operational goals (16 of them)
2) Market cap goals (12 of them)

Here are the operational goals:

1. #Lebanon is entering a very dark period with #COVID19, as we expected. The next 2-3 weeks will have more regular daily deaths of 10-20 people. Little can be done to change that. If nothing new happens, the weeks after that will be even worse.
**What is to be done?**
2. National lockdown? Ideal in some ways, but realistically unlikely. Compliance varies heavily, people exhausted by overlapping crises have limited compliance, central authorities have limited enforcement capacity.
Only alternative➡️Green Zone Strategy ...
3. Green-zoning would categorize Regions as Green/Yellow/Red, depending on #COVID19 community spread. Effectively, it means selectively imposing restrictions at sub-national level. Green zones have zero community transmission, life&work w.least restrictions, near-normal...

Educating neighbors Uniswap accounting 101.

Balances are vectors, and K-value is the product. Fees are additive to the vector.

To figure out fees collected is to figure out the proportion of vectors using K2 vs K1.

#Uniswap $UNI #Ethereum $ETH 🔹️
Now onto the more political aspect of crypto: " $UNI is a wOrthl3ss ToK3N. "

Few understand.
All will horde.
The pure form is simple to explain, the working form factors in many moving parts, including repeated deposits and withdrawal constantly interrupting good accounting.

Nothing motivates accurate accounting more than real money on the line.

1/ Thread on the US technology sector. $QQQ $XLK

Every man & his dog know tech is outperforming other sectors, the market cap of several tech companies has exceeded the GDP of many countries & the retail investors are jumping on the easy money bandwagon.

So, is tech a bubble?
2/ The short answer: I don't know.

The long answer?

Let us have a look at charts, data points & trends to decide whether the Tech sector — at this moment in time — is a good long term investment opportunity based on the "weight of evidence approach."
3/ Before I start, it is worth noting that we aren't expert growth investor, nor married to this narrative alone.

So while we lack expertise & god-given status, we allocate capital to many different sectors (for diversification) based on a bit of common sense & objectivity.

almost finished writing my script for the next @nonserviammedia (will have it recorded by wednesday, promise!) and leftists should read way more lit on military theory
probably one of the weirdest parts of post-post-modernism in a WEIRD country is that we've had the potential for massive reorganization of society using computers but it hasn't happened

this kinda gets brushed aside bc most people interact with industrial era institutions...
... most people experience decentralized autonomous through culture first and foremost and not at work or school b/c social media is the only freedom they have

if you aren't in a job that prizes autonomy u probs have a networked social life and a hierarchical work/school life
