      Will the Chinese tech stocks fly in the Year of the Dragon?

      With a $280 billion government rescue plan announced by the authorities to steam the stock market rout and restored market confidence, the Chinese stock market has been buoyed by the prospect that the market may have bottomed out. Also in an attempt to revive the domestic electric vehicle industry, China has promised to help its EV makers expand overseas through overcoming foreign trade restrictions and improving their overseas compliance capabilities.

      $PayPal(PYPL)$ This isn't a bank, PayPal is a fintech that permits customers to hold cash in supposedly segregated accounts. Yet, PayPal deliberately mismatches those payables due and a portion of customer funds go into corporate cash flow. For years, they maintained a multi billion dollar account payable shortfall of customer balances and have increased that mismatch every year since 2019. If every customer tried to remove 100% of their account credit balances at once, PayPal would need to immediately borrow the difference between accounts payable and accounts receivable from a bank to make good the difference, or alternatively, freeze withdrawals. It's right there, in the filings, should you choose to look.

      $PayPal(PYPL)$ The change in reporting to include stock based compensation expense in non-GAAP numbers is the detail missed by many. I didn’t even notice it until others on the board pointed it out and then I listened to the call. I really liked what Alex had to say on the call. 9% revenue growth is solid. Cash flow machine. I like that they guided revenue 1 quarter out. 6-7% more top line growth expected. Who cares about the stock, it will catch up over time. Great opportunity to buy more at market open if it actually opens in the high 50s. Great quarter!

      $PayPal(PYPL)$ PYPL beat earnings, provided conservative guidance and dropped 8% in the always mysterious after hours. Conservative guidance reduces the likelihood of bad news on future earnings. Conservatism results in the timely recognition of bad news and in the delayed recognition of difficult-to-verify good news. Good news will be recognized when stronger verification requirements have been met. This was a smart, transparent earnings call. Better than aggressive guidance not based on fact that could lead to bad news next quarter.

      $PayPal(PYPL)$ I am super dissapointed to be honest, even if they did beat during the next quarter - this would mean nothing to the stock price as of poor guidance for the remainder of 2024. CEO pretty much told himself: "We are moving nowhere during 2024 and innovations takes time". Ok, clear, thanks bye, I wil come back next year.Bloodbath tomorrow, once people sober up and realize there is no meta-like story here.-8% is well deserved drop, welcome to being a bagholder if you entered in 60s.

      Michael Burry's 13F for Q4/2023 - what has he bought and sold?

      13F reflects the holdings and I have highlighted some of the interesting activities (sales & purchases). As these took place in Q4/2023, it cannot be a timely tool but it helps to identify concerns and opportunities seen by these great investors. Michael Burry - Scion Asset Management Observations: Burry bought Chinese stocks (JD & BABA). Is this an implication of the future value of the China market or these 2 players from the e-commerce space? Burry added some of the Magnificent 7 into his portfolio with the likes of Alphabet and Amazon. At the same time, Burry has added Citigroup - which has been going through major layoffs recently. The other company of interest is Advance Auto Parts. Is there going to be greater demand for auto spares in the coming future? With the rising co

      Warren Buffett's 13F for Q4/2023 - what has he bought and sold?

      13F reflects the holdings and I have highlighted some of the interesting activities (sales & purchases). As these took place in Q4/2023, it cannot be a timely tool but it helps to identify concerns and opportunities seen by these great investors. Now. let us start with Mr Buffett (from Berkshire Hathaway). Warren Buffett - Berkshire Hathaway Observations: Buffett continues to add Chevron and Occidental (oil & gas) into his portfolio. This implies that oil & gas are here to stay and these could be at good “attractive prices”. It is interesting to see the trimming of Apple holdings. Since it is (merely) 1.09% of its holdings, it could just be some profit-taking, and portfolio re-balancing. However, Buffett has sold all positions for D R Horton, Markel Group, StoneCo, and Globe

      Charlie Munger's protege - Li Lu's 13F for Q4/2023 - what has he bought and sold?

      13F reflects the holdings and I have highlighted some of the interesting activities (sales & purchases). As these took place in Q4/2023, it cannot be a timely tool but it helps to identify concerns and opportunities seen by these great investors. Mr Li Lu - Himalaya Capital Management Observations: There are no sales or purchases in Q4/2023 for Li Lu. Li is also known as one of the top proteges of the late Charlie Munger and thus, it is interesting to note that there are no major changes to the portfolio. However, I would be concerned about the holdings in the banking sector as I think that there could be more challenging days coming up starting with the end of the BTF Program in March 2024. Li Lu is also the one who introduced Berkshire to other Asian stocks like BYD and probably t

      $PayPal(PYPL)$ They are basically good from every fundamental point, they lose only customers that are not willing to pay few $ per transaction, but overall payment volume and $ per customer are up in the last 5Y. They are basically cleaning themselves(which is like 1% per Q in the face of losing customers, which is irrelevant). So yea, no matter what you say as long as they have strong fundamentals and fewer ppl with more cash spend through PYPL everything is going to be fine. AMEX has few customers compared to PYPL, V, MA, but are in a good position. I can live with few customers on PYPL platforms, but with deep pockets. Why bother crying over losing 1mil. customers per quarter, when these ppl leaving the platforms are

      $PayPal(PYPL)$ This isn't a bank, PayPal is a fintech that permits customers to hold cash in supposedly segregated accounts. Yet, PayPal deliberately mismatches those payables due and a portion of customer funds go into corporate cash flow. For years, they maintained a multi billion dollar account payable shortfall of customer balances and have increased that mismatch every year since 2019. If every customer tried to remove 100% of their account credit balances at once, PayPal would need to immediately borrow the difference between accounts payable and accounts receivable from a bank to make good the difference, or alternatively, freeze withdrawals. It's right there, in the filings, should you choose to look.
