PRESENTS BEHIND-THE-SCENES DOCUMENTARY OF A DAY ON WALL STREET FROM OPENING GONG TO CLOSING OF THE DAY’S TRADING IN THE STOCK MARKET. FURIOUS PACE OF NEW YORK & AMERICAN STOCK EXCHANGES AND COMMODITY TRADING MARKETS AS LEADING BROKERS AND TRADERS EXPLAIN THEIR BUYING AND SELLING PHILOSOPHIES WITHOUT INTERRUPTING THEIR ACTIVITIES ON THE FLOOR. This covers the history of the stock market mostly from 1920 to 1960. Fascinating.
It’s the short squeeze of a vegan’s paradise. Shares of Beyond Meat (NASDAQ:BYND) jumped another 21% yesterday on an earnings beat, or really a loss beat, the company losing only $6.6 million on total net revenues of just over $40 million. The company now has a market cap of over $9 billion, and short borrowing costs keep rising. 51% of the company’s float is still being held short, which means the short squeeze can continue if the positions can’t be maintained, which would be especially relevant if the broader market starts to fall while Beyond keeps rising. There is about $800 million left in short positions on the stock. The short side is down about $400 million since January, while the stock is up about 650% since its IPO at $25.

Hypernflation created in financial assets as sovereign bonds artificially inflated

In the summer of 1929 the surface of Wall Street was a mixture of placidity and mania – stock averages at record highs and still headed upward, the dissenters momentarily routed … Roger Babson said to an audience at a routine New England financial luncheon, ‘I repeat what I said at this time last year and the year before, that sooner or later a crash is coming.’ As Babson implied, his earlier warnings had been roundly ignored… When the crash finally came, it came with a kind of surrealistic slowness – so gradually that, on the one hand, it was possible to live through a good part of it without realizing it was happening, and, on the other hand, it was possible to believe that one had experienced and survived it when in fact it had no more than just begun.
– John Brooks, Once in Golconda, 1969
