Avoiding Hype-Burn Amidst IPO Stock Mania

ConsumerWatch / IPOs May 28, 2019 - 08:55 PM GMT

By: Harry_Dent

ConsumerWatch Given that we’re in the greatest global bubble in history, almost everything is overvalued. We’re expecting central banks to keep printing money, interest rates to stay near zero, growth to continue “into a plateau of prosperity.” Just like 1929.

Dare us to say: it’s hard to find good value investments out there.

Look at this chart of accelerating IPOs at higher and higher prices, most often from companies that have no or little profits. People are buying into the bubble at prices that companies could not possibly fulfill even in many years, if ever. They don’t call these companies “unicorns” for nothing.



At the top of the massive tech and internet bubble in 1999 and 2000, the key IPOs only totaled $17.6 billion.

Look at the progression as the greatest stock bubble in history keeps hitting new higher levels…

Bigger and bigger…

Google and the high-profile IPOs of 2004 to 2006 raked in $45.3 billion. Between 2012 and 2014, Facebook & Co. cumulatively valued at $143.2 billion.

Now it’s Uber and its peers, collectively valuing at $182.9 billion. And this bubble isn’t over yet.

Yet Uber has $16 billion in cumulative losses, no chance of profits anytime soon, if ever. It’s drivers are overworked and underpaid. They likely won’t stay with the company for long. And its IPO is backing off that $100 billion initial valuation. (That may be a sign that this bubble is getting close to peaking, but more on that another time.)

So, how do you make money on companies like these that have no profits and are valued 10 to 20 years out, on the assumption of success?

How do you find the Amazons of this world without the wild roller coaster ride – up and down — at the beginning?

Amazon IPO’d in May 1997 with a value of only $438 million. A year later it was smacked down 88%. In the tech wreck of 2000 to 2002, it was whacked down again, 93% from its highs.

After hitting $6 per share, it began its ascension and recently got as high as $2,039 per share. PER SHARE!

How do we get on the train at THAT point?

I guess those are the questions every investor asks, and one of the reasons you follow our work. You hope we have the answers.

We do.

Finding the next Amazon…

There’s a new twist on our four-season and S-curve model of business that Rodney, our Boom & Bust Portfolio Manager, has identified. It’s called “The Second Wave,” and it’s giving investors like you the opportunity to board the profit train AFTER the hype has done its damage.

I recognized it’s power as soon as Rodney revealed it to me recently…

I spent years consulting to, running, and investing in new ventures. Being an entrepreneur myself and having a natural attraction to risk, I tended to invest in that brutal first wave… the one that crushes you when the wave breaks. My thinking would be something along these lines: “Here’s a new product/technology. It’s radically better than the existing ones.” Why not get in early on? The problem is that it is just getting off the ground, has to raise money with no track record, get initial customers for credibility and cash flow, and if successful, has to manage rapid growth. There are a million things that can go wrong at that vulnerable stage.

Inevitably they face a crisis, even if successful. Too many competitors will enter the market and over-expand. The creative entrepreneur will find he has no skills at managing the growth he created, funding will dry up in stock crashes like 2000-2002, or 2008-2009… and on and on.

Beating the shakeout…

Every new growth industry faces a shakeout. Actually, there’s a series of shakeouts. It’s especially during that first shakeout, when the tide recedes, that you first see who’s swimming naked. The weak are weeded out and the strong survive.

That’s where I should have invested when the new industry or company was still young – at the beginning of that second wave. It’s where the winning candidates come into their own and the direction of the industry comes into clearer focus. That’s where I invest now that I’m wiser, smarter, have three decades of research under my belt… and have a business partner like Rodney Johnson.

I have convinced Rodney to share with you how he uses the Second Wave to get investors into profitable investments without getting hype-burn. He’s scheduled time to do so next Thursday, May 30, at 1 p.m. Make sure you’re there to hear all about it so you can potentially add the next big thing to your portfolio without facing the prospect of being body slammed by a crashing wave.

Harry studied economics in college in the ’70s, but found it vague and inconclusive. He became so disillusioned by the state of the profession that he turned his back on it. Instead, he threw himself into the burgeoning New Science of Finance, which married economic research and market research and encompassed identifying and studying demographic trends, business cycles, consumers’ purchasing power and many, many other trends that empowered him to forecast economic and market changes.
