Former Federal Reserve Chairman Janet Yellen recently told the press an economic slowdown is in the works. Yellen isn’t happy about the interest rate increases new Fed Chairman Jerome Powell put in place. And she’s not happy about Trump’s trade war with China. Yellen also thinks the bull market has left the investment world, and the bear is back on its feet. There’s nowhere to run or hide now that the recessionShervin Pishevar talked about at the beginning of 2018 is on track to hit the United States in 2019.
Shervin Pishevar is one of those Silicon Valley startup investors who picked a couple of startups several years and invested in them. Uber was one of those startups. Airbnb was another. Shervin Pishevar’s startup picks put him in rare company in Silicon Valley. He became an investment rock star. Every startup Pishevar picked turned into investment gold. Shervin formed Sherpa Capital, his own investment company when he hit the hedge fund big time. Investors all over the world followed him on Twitter. They wanted to know what he knew about future investments. But when he went on a 21-hour tweetstorm at the beginning of 2018, they didn’t like what he had to say.
Shervin Pishevar’s 50 tweet tweetstorm painted a bleak investment picture. He told his followers the stock market would give back all its gains in 2018. That happened in December 2018. Pishevar also warned investors that the bond market yields would be unattractive in 2019 and that seems to be the case, according to Janet Yellen. Another Shervin Pishevar tweet threw his friends in Silicon Valley a curveball when he said the Valley may not be the startup capital of the world in 2019.
When Shervin finished his 21-hour tweetstorm, investors thought he lost his investment mojo. They thought he tried to make it sound like he still knew how to predict market trends. But those investors have a different opinion of Shervin Pishevar now that they feel the pain of Trump’s trade war and his foreign economic policies. Pishevar turned the naysayers into believers. The Pishevar predictions make sense now that the Feds see the economic storm on the horizon.
