Inflation is driven by an energy supply crunch

Governments have a few choices today: ration demand, hike/tighten enough to weaken growth, and ease foreign policy in Ukraine. As the pain grows they will do all three.
The 8th installment of my #TMTseries is out!
I analyze $AVGO's planned acquisition of $VMW and among other things:

  • Analyze the financial terms of the deal;
  • Explain how and why the operational model of VMware will change drastically;
  • Understand Broadcom’s outstanding financials and explain the competitive advantages behind it;
  • and finally seek to identify what this deal means for VMware’s customers from a business and technical standpoint going ahead.

Check it out!

Investing the Pelican Way
Spend most of the time chilling on posts/floating on waves, but ALWAYS staying alert for opportunities.

Expend time/energy VERY selectively; abort quickly when prospects aren’t great.

Act swiftly/decisively ONLY when it’s damn near a sure thing.

A Federal Reserve pivot in September or so has vanished like a dream. Velocity of hikes is what it's gonna be about in the short and medium term now
Returns, Last 10 Years..
Bitcoin $BTC: +569,772%
Tesla $TSLA: +12,039%
NVIDIA $NVDA: +6,497%
Netflix $NFLX: +1,988%
AMD $AMD: +1,644%
Domino's $DPZ: 1,262%
Amazon $AMZN: +1,052%
Microsoft $MSFT: +1,021%
Apple $AAPL: +736%
Google $GOOGL: +703%
S&P 500 $SPY: +277%
Gold $GLD: +9%
What would be crazier— for Bitcoin to repeat similar returns over the next 10 years, or for it to level off and return 0% (but not go to zero)?

"Inflation is like toothpaste. Once it's out, you can hardly get it back in again. So the best thing is not to squeeze too hard on the tube.” - Dr Karl Otto Pöhl
