Hacker News reader and tech entrepreneur Lawrence Fishmarket is a former technology reporter for TechCrunch and currently the founder of an online investment company, Fishmarket Investment Trust.
In addition to his own investment portfolio, Fishworld is a regular contributor to InvestorPlace and the Wall Street Journal, and a regular guest on The Futures Podcast.
The author of The Futurities Podcast is a frequent contributor to the Financial Times, Business Insider, The New York Times, NBC, CBS, CNN, the Financial Times, Bloomberg, and other publications.
Fishworld is also a frequent writer for The Wall Street Journal and Business Insider.
In an interview with The Futures podcast, he shared some thoughts on how the stock markets work, the stock prices that he invests in, and the value of stock investments in general.
“The stock market has a lot of different components, but it’s pretty straightforward to say that if you have a stock with an upside and a downside, you’re more likely to get the upside than the downside.
The downside of a stock has to be a lot bigger than the upside, because the upside of a company is much bigger.
But that’s not to say the market isn’t important, it is.”
He continued: “A stock is more likely than not to get hit by a calamity.
And it’s also more likely that a company will go bankrupt.
So the market is a very volatile thing, but that’s because of a lot things.
A lot of companies are very successful, and then you get into the realm of the really low hanging fruit.”
Fishworld, who is currently in the midst of his first year in Silicon Valley, says he believes the stock price is worth investing into, as it’s one of the few areas where you can actually invest in real time and not have to wait to see what happens in the future.
He said: “If you invest in the stocks that are the best performing in the industry, then you can have a pretty good long-term view.
The other things you need to look at are the volatility, the risks, the upside.
There’s a lot you can invest in and it can have some value.””
It’s also a great way to diversify your portfolio, because you’re able to take advantage of the opportunity that’s there and the opportunity in the markets.”
What makes investing in stocks more attractive?
It’s a question that many investors ask themselves when considering a particular stock.
While there are plenty of reasons why people might choose to invest in a stock, one of them is the ability to hedge against a possible future downturn.
Fishworld says that it’s the ability for an investor to hedge the market against an event that might happen in the near future that is a great benefit of investing in a specific stock.
“The fact that you can hedge against things that are potentially going to happen in your lifetime, I think is an asset that a lot people are really looking for,” Fishworld said.
“And that’s why the market has become such a valuable asset for investors.”
“If you buy a stock that’s going to go up in value tomorrow, you have some assurance that the market will continue to rise in value the same day that it goes up in price.”
As for how the market works, Fishman said that the most basic method of investing is to put money in a mutual fund, which allows you to hedge your investment against future price movements.
“You’re buying something with a fixed rate, you know, 10 percent for example, and you have your investment fund with a long-dated return, so you’re not making any money from that investment.
You’re making a certain amount of money in the fund,” he explained.”
It will go up and down, and there’s an assumption that the fund will grow in value, so it’s sort of a ‘go-to’ investment for people.”
And then if there’s a downturn, you take the money and put it in the mutual fund to pay for that future investment.
That’s what mutual funds are for.
“Fishman, who previously worked for CNBC, also explained that one of his favorite stocks is the healthcare company Anthem, which he says is one of “the most undervalued companies in the country”.”
I would say Anthem is undervalued by almost 2X, in my opinion.
And that’s pretty high for a company that’s been around for decades,” he said.”
A lot of times, people look at a company and think, ‘Oh, that’s a good company to own’.
But you have to think about that company for a minute.
It’s not a very well known company.
“He added: “There’s a ton of undervalued healthcare stocks, and that’s one that I think people should really take a look at.””
Anthem is a really great company, but if you’re just a regular consumer, I
