I spent a day trying to pay for things with bitcoin and a bar of gold
 
02:34
Ray Dalio, the founder of the largest hedge fund in the world, told Henry Blodget that investors should have 5% to 10% of their portfolio in gold. During that same interview, Dalio called bitcoin a "speculative bubble" and said "bitcoin is not an effective medium exchange by and large" and "it's not easy to buy things with the bitcoin." Dalio isn't the only one asking these questions about bitcoin. If bitcoin really is a currency, then it is important that you can buy things with it. But this may not be a fair argument. We all seem to accept gold as a storehold of wealth and as an alternative currency even though you really can't make purchases with gold. So in an effort to fairly compare gold and bitcoin in this vein, we went out into the world to see how easy it was to spend both in everyday transactions. It turns out it isn't easy to spend either. The only person we could find who accepted gold in New York City was Donald Trump in 2011. Bitcoin is slightly easier to spend. We couldn't use our bitcoin at Subway, which is on a few lists of retailers that accept bitcoin. Le Village, a restaurant in New York's East Village that many have reported accepts bitcoin, was closed down when we tried to eat there. But we did have some luck spending bitcoin. We found that it was easy to use bitcoin on Overstock.com. Also, my daughter's preschool accepts bitcoin for tuition payments. But if you really want to use bitcoin in everyday transactions, you can get a debit card that allows you to spend bitcoin easily. But maybe we are simply using the wrong words when we talk about bitcoin. As Adam Ludwin, the founder and CEO of Chain, says in his open letter to Jamie Dimon, "since this isn't about cryptocurrencies vs. fiat currencies let's stop using the word currency." He goes on to say that he prefers to think of them as "crypto assets."

What a bitcoin fork actually is
 
06:48
Bitcoin split in two in August when the digital currency officially forked creating Bitcoin Cash. Bitcoin gold was created when bitcoin forked again in October. And now the SegWit2x fork is looming. Meanwhile, bitcoin continues to hit new record highs. We asked Nolan Bauerle, the director of research at CoinDesk, to come in to help explain what exactly happens when a cryptocurrency splits and whether it undermines the strength of the coin.

How to value a bitcoin
 
08:55
In the first episode of "the bit," FundStrat Global Advisor co-founder Tom Lee explains different methodologies for valuing bitcoin. Lee shares his short-term and long-term bitcoin price targets based on these valuation methods. According to Tom Lee, 94% of the variation in the price of bitcoin is explained using their model employing Metcalfe’s Law. Metcalfe’s law says the value of a network is proportional to the square of the number of users on the network. Based on this model, Lee expects the value of bitcoin to be $6,000 by the middle of 2018. FundStrat uses a different method to come up with its long-term price target. According to Lee it is conservative to estimate that bitcoin and other cryptocurrencies would represent 5% of the money parked in gold. Based on FundStrat’s assumptions this would value bitcoin at $25,000 by 2022.

Amazon's transformation of Whole Foods puts the entire grocery industry on notice

Business Insider CEO Henry Blodget discusses the aftermath of the Amazon-Whole Foods deal, highlighting the price cuts made at Whole Foods stores. He notes that the stocks of competing grocers have taken a beating, selling off any time there was a new announcement from Amazon. He mentions comments from a Morgan Stanley analyst, who thinks the new Whole Foods has the ability to close the pricing gap between it and its competitors. Blodget then points out that Amazon shows that a company doesn't necessarily need to maximize profits to see share gains. -------------------------------------------------- Follow BI Video on Twitter: http://bit.ly/1oS68Zs Follow BI on Facebook: http://bit.ly/1W9Lk0n Read more: http://www.businessinsider.com/ -------------------------------------------------- Business Insider is the fastest growing business news site in the US.

Cryptocurrency Investing Risks With Ari Paul Of BlockTower Capital
 
02:54
Ari Paul, CIO of cryptocurrency hedge fund BlockTower Capital, talks with Business Insider editor-at-large Sara Silverstein about the three main risks with investing in cryptocurrencies. Following is a transcript of the video. Ari Paul: I’m Ari Paul, CIO of BlockTower Capital. These are the three main risks of investing in cryptocurrency. Sara Silverstein: And when you look at cryptocurrencies in general what do you think the biggest risks are in investing? Paul: So it's a broad variety. So you have the investment risk, these are hyper volatile assets. As with equities or bonds, any particular equity can go to zero, right? Any particular company, any stock, and the same is true of cryptocurrency. So any particular cryptocurrency can definitely go to zero. And even if it ultimately wins, bitcoin on its path from 10 cents to $7,000, it’s fallen 80% five separate times. So that's incredible volatility, right? Then you have — you have operational risk. So how do you store these cryptocurrencies securely? And then you have regulatory risk. So the US is only about a quarter of the world market. So the US government is not an existential threat to cryptocurrency, but as a US investor it could certainly be a threat. If I'm an endowment and I invest in cryptocurrency, I am exposed to regulatory changes. Silverstein: And what's the operational risk? What does that mean — does it mean that how I'm holding my bitcoin is at risk? Paul: Yes, yes. So if someone wants to steal assets that are stored in equity or cash, it's hard. So they can maybe wire money out of a bank account. It's traceable, they're probably going to get caught, wires are reversible. With cryptocurrency transactions are irreversible, and can potentially be made truly anonymous. And so the thief is more likely to get away with it. So it's a tremendous target for hackers, it's a target for thieves, including insiders, and in a large operation, and there's potentially no recourse. So you have to be really, really careful that you're storing cryptocurrency securely. And that's a serious concern. Silverstein: And for people who are just individuals and who use a program like Coinbase or a wallet like that, what are the concerns there? Paul: So, having your assets with Coinbase is a little bit like having a lot of money with a bank. So FDIC insurance will cover you a little bit, but if you have $20 million with JPMorgan — what you have is an IOU. You actually don't — legally you don't own the money, JPMorgan does — you have an IOU, you are a creditor of JPMorgan. So similarly if you have bitcoin sitting on Coinbase, you are a creditor of Coinbase. If they go under, it's unlikely you ever get your bitcoin. So if they get hacked or bankrupted for some reason. So to actually really own your bitcoin or cryptocurrency, in a way that is secure, you need to have physical control over it. Now what does physical control mean, right? We're talking about zeros and ones. So what that means is — to own cryptocurrency means you know, basically a password, it's called a private key. The best way to store it securely for most people, is to used what's called a hardware wallet. So there's something called the Treasure or Ledger are two leading companies that make a very secure — kind of looks like a USB stick, and it's the best security solution today. Where you can store it yourself, securely, in a way that probably is not hackable.

Alibaba has been one of the best-performing mega-cap stocks of the year, surging 100%.

It's now closing the gap on Amazon, another rapidly-growing tech giant. Business Insider executive editor Sara Silverstein compares the two companies, then discusses just how high Alibaba's stock price can go as it attempts to expand more into international markets — which is when it'll start to compete more directly with Amazon. -------------------------------------------------- Follow BI Video on Twitter: http://bit.ly/1oS68Zs Follow BI on Facebook: http://bit.ly/1W9Lk0n Read more: http://www.businessinsider.com/ -------------------------------------------------- Business Insider is the fastest growing business news site in the US.

How the Sale of Qdoba Will Impact Chipotle's Future
 
02:32
Business Insider editor-at-large Sara Silverstein discusses Mexican food chain Qdoba's sale to private equity firm Apollo for $305 million, and breaks down what it might mean for Chipotle's valuation. She notes that Qdoba is valued at under $1 million per store, while Chipotle is currently trading at about $3.5 million per store. Business Insider CEO and noted Chipotle enthusiast Henry Blodget joins the discussion, admitting that he's never eaten at Qdoba, and that he'll continue to favor Chipotle. Silverstein outlines some of Qdoba's positives: it's always had queso dip, its queso and guacamole are free, and it has a bigger menu, including quesadillas. Blodget concludes that the comparison between the two is worrisome for Chipotle. -------------------------------------------------- Follow BI Video on Twitter: http://bit.ly/1oS68Zs Follow BI on Facebook: http://bit.ly/1W9Lk0n Read more: http://www.businessinsider.com/ -------------------------------------------------- Business Insider is the fastest growing business news site in the US.

Amazon can 'overwhelm the competition with brute force'

Scott Galloway, a marketing professor at NYU and author of the new book "The Four: The Hidden DNA of Amazon, Apple, Facebook, and Google," discusses Amazon. He says that whenever the company is bumping up against the other three juggernauts, it's winning. He cites how Alexa is beating Siri, and mentions the company's torrid pace of growth. Galloway thinks that Amazon's core confidence is storytelling, and mentions Amazon having access to the cheapest cost of capital in history — which allows them to overwhelm the competition with brute force. -------------------------------------------------- Follow BI Video on Twitter: http://bit.ly/1oS68Zs Follow BI on Facebook: http://bit.ly/1W9Lk0n Read more: http://www.businessinsider.com/ -------------------------------------------------- Business Insider is the fastest growing business news site in the US.

Charles Schwab Chief Global Strategist Says Stocks Will Keep Soaring in 2018
 
04:06
Business Insider editor-at-large Sara Silverstein sits down with Jeffrey Kleintop, chief investment strategist at Charles Schwab, who outlines his equity outlook for 2018. He's optimistic, and cites what should be back-to-back years of broad global economic growth. He also mentions that earnings growth will continue to be strong after a banner year in 2017. On the downside, he notes that yield curves have flattened, which could be a negative for stocks with high valuations. Kleintop outlines his biggest stock market risks for 2018, which include a Chinese economic growth slowdown, natural disasters and geopolitics. He says that these possible risks could come into play in the second half of the year, if economic growth starts to slow. Kleintop doesn't express any worry around the Federal Reserve or inflation, saying that we're starting to see a clearer path for inflation, which will make the central bank more data dependent again. He also says the market is already braced for the Fed's rate hikes in 2018. In terms of a geographical preference, Kleintop says that he favors international stocks, which are more cyclical, inflation-sensitive and attractively priced. He notes that the correlation between stocks around the world is at the lowest in 20 years, which improves the market for global diversification. -------------------------------------------------- Follow BI Video on Twitter: http://bit.ly/1oS68Zs Follow BI on Facebook: http://bit.ly/1W9Lk0n Read more: http://www.businessinsider.com/ -------------------------------------------------- Business Insider is the fastest growing business news site in the US.

What Bitcoin Futures Could Mean For The Price Of Bitcoin
 
01:47
Grey Dwyer, BitMEX head of business development, talks with Business Insider executive editor Sara Silverstein about how futures contracts are going to impact the bitcoin community. Following is a transcript of the video. Greg Dwyer: I'm Greg Dwyer. I'm the head of business development at BitMEX, Bitcoin Mercantile Exchange. I'm here to talk to you about how bitcoin futures contracts are going to impact a bitcoin community. Sara Silverstein: Explain to me how all of this institutional money coming in to the futures market — which is not the same as it going into the bitcoin market — how is that going to impact bitcoin? Dwyer: Bitcoin now trades, pretty much, on unregulated markets. The fact that it's going to start trading on the CME and CFE brings an air of legitimacy to the space, because it's going to bring in mainstream and professional investors, and have them be more comfortable participating in the futures market which is more regulated. This is a big endorsement for the digital currency trading space. We could see more flows come into it and also, not only that, but futures help dampen and reduce the volatility of the price. So, this could help stabilize bitcoin as an asset class. And basically increase the utility function of it as a source of economic — as a method of economic transactions. Now, looking at the current market cap of bitcoin as going to $300 billion, with more institutional money coming in we could see market caps go up to $500 billion, which could — or even $1 trillion — which could increase the price of bitcoin from now $15,000 up to $20,000, $25,000, or even $50,000.

Jim Chanos Is Worried About The Economy, But Not Because Of Inflation
 
03:47
At the Nasdaq Market Site, Business Insider Senior Finance Correspondent Linette Lopez spoke with famed short seller Jim Chanos about the reintroduction of inflation to the market for the first time since the financial crisis. It is causing volatility unseen in years. That's not what worries Chanos most about the US economy, though. He's more concerned about what he calls the "rent seeking behavior" of corporations. "In a highly competitive economy, if interest rates are so low, returns should be dropping," said Chanos. "Instead, returns and corporate assets are remaining high. And some of that might be technology. Some of it might be just simple lobbying — rent-seeking." Following is an edited transcript of the video. Linette Lopez: We just had the highest CPI print in 13 years. It looks like inflation is sort of back. The market is changing. Legendary trader Paul Tudor Jones just said it's making him feel like he's in his 20s again, all this volatility. How do you feel about this market, and do you feel like you're in your 20s again? Jim Chanos: Well, I want to take whatever he's taking to feel like he's in his 20s again. There's more volatility. But compared to historical — when Paul was in his 20s and I was in my 20s — I mean it's kind of nothing. Back then the 30-year bond, which is what we used to look at, would trade in a 30-basis-point band in a day. Now it moves three basis points and people get terrified. Lopez: It's crazy because there are so many young Wall Streeters who have never seen a market like this. They've never been chained to their chairs. They've never been, you know, glued to their screens in the way they have to when the market is volatile. Do you have any advice for those kids? Chanos: Well, back in my day ... I mean no one wants to hear that. What Wall Street has benefited from, among many things, is basically a probably once-in-a-lifetime move in rates from 14% to basically 2% or zero percent, depending on whether you're looking at short-term rates. And we're not going to repeat that, I'm pretty safe in saying. So what Wall Street hasn't seen — with the exception of a few graybeards like Paul and myself — is high interest rates or rising interest rates for any sustainable period of time. And the big change will come when that changes. So I don't know if that's what's happening now. We'll see. But, you know, when you see things like Greece borrowing at rates lower than the US for two-year notes — Lopez: It's a little wonky. Chanos: It's a little crazy. And so things are happening in the credit markets that are making people a little uncomfortable. We've moved to almost 3% on the 10-year. But based on where nominal growth is right now — I mean with or without a rising CPI — the 10-year should be north of 4%. So we're still in a very accommodative environment. Lopez: We seem to have a stew going here. We have this tax cut. We have this massive budget agreement between the Democrats and Republicans that's going to add to the deficit. And it seems like corporations are really winning out. And it seems like labor — you have regular people like me who are kind of losing in this equation. This has been going on for years. How do you stop it? Chanos: Yeah, the rent-seeking economy. Chanos: You know, it really is a puzzle. And I was reading a column in The New York Times this morning talking about that. And why we haven't seen more competitive forces bringing returns down to where rates are. In a highly competitive economy, if interest rates are so low, returns should be dropping. Instead, returns and corporate assets are remaining high. And some of that might be technology. Some of it might be just simple lobbying — rent-seeking. And I think it's probably a combination of both. But what it does lead to is stagnating wages, lower capital investment, and a disproportionate amount of the economy going to the corporate sector and shareholders. And that's great for equity holders; it's not really great for everybody else.

The CIO Of A Crypto Hedge Fund Reveals Why You Should Be Cautious Of The ICO Bubble
 
02:00
Ari Paul, CIO of cryptocurrency hedge fund BlockTower Capital, talks with Business Insider executive editor Sara Silverstein about why he thinks investors should be cautious when investing in ICOs. Following is a transcript of the video.  Sara Silverstein: And what about the ICO bonanza that we've been seeing? How do you feel about initial coin offerings? Ari Paul: I think that one aspect of the cryptocurrency market is a lot like 1999. So, in the early '90s you great high quality projects coming to market. It wasn't viewed as a get-rich-quick scheme to launch a tech company in 1990. It was hard to raise money. By 1999 it was easy. And it was viewed as easy money on the investment side. So you had a lot of bad business ideas, a lot of early-stage projects, and a lot of investors who didn't know what they were doing throwing money, and you had a bubble. So in ICOs I think we see the same thing today. Which is we see a lot of really bad projects, that are worth nothing, and some great projects, that are still dramatically overvalued — for where they are in their stage of development. This goes in cycles. So ICOs are experimenting. They are best viewed as early VC stage projects. Like as in equities, most will fail — most should fail. That doesn't mean they're bad as a class. So as an investor though, right now I'd be very picky about ICO investing, but I'm grateful for the experimentation happening. And like in the tech boom, there going to be a lot of lessons learned from failed experiments that move the world forward. Silverstein: And when you look at an ICO what are you actually — what does the company actually owe you if you sign up for one of these new tokens? Paul: So generally nothing. First, there’s almost no case law on this. Many of the contracts are structured legally as donations. So I'm contributing either US dollars or sometimes cryptocurrency, maybe I send ether or I send bitcoin to the development team. And basically they say, “Maybe we'll send you something at some point. Maybe we'll send you a new cryptocurrency that we create, at some point in the future.” But they're not legally obligated to. Those contracts haven't really been tested in court yet. So frankly is an investor we don't know.

Why lower unemployment hasn't resulted in higher wages

Why Nintendo is dominating like the old days
 
03:35
Business Insider CEO Henry Blodget and chief tech correspondent Steve Kovach break down Nintendo, which has seen its stock surge following the release of its new Switch gaming console, which is a huge upgrade over the Wii U. Blodget points out the company's stock history, which saw shares peak around 2008 after the launch of the original Wii, but has since fallen considerably. Kovach notes that a big selling point for the Switch is that it's portable for users, something that people have said Nintendo needed to do for years. He also highlights the blockbuster games released by the company, including a new Zelda title, as well as Super Mario Odyssey. Kovach says that the new Mario game in particular is incredibly innovative, despite how long the character has been around. Blodget discusses a recent Jefferies research report on Nintendo, which argues that while the Switch is the company's near-term driver, its long-term catalyst will be what it does on mobile. Kovach thinks that Nintendo has done well to adjust to mobile, and says that people will pay for reasonably priced games. -------------------------------------------------- Follow BI Video on Twitter: http://bit.ly/1oS68Zs Follow BI on Facebook: http://bit.ly/1W9Lk0n Read more: http://www.businessinsider.com/ -------------------------------------------------- Business Insider is the fastest growing business news site in the US.

Netflix just crushed earnings, but can it grow to $300 billion?
 
04:44
Business Insider CEO Henry Blodget looks at Netflix following the company's earnings report, which saw the stock surging to a new high. He discusses the main thesis of Netflix, which is that it's a modern TV network, and points out that most of the company's growth is coming from overseas. Blodget reminds CEOs that it's not imperative to just maximize profits — that it's OK to reinvest in your own business and still be rewarded in the stock market. In terms of Netflix's future valuation, he says that the company will need $7 billion to $8 billion of EBITDA and trade at 15-20x to support a $100 billion market cap. Business Insider executive editor Sara Silverstein points out that Netflix just increased its prices, but still has more room to raise them in the future. Blodget agrees in the company's untapped pricing power, and then Silverstein points out that it still has great merchandising potential. In terms of how big the company can get, Blodget again highlights just how far the company has to go on an EBITDA basis to achieve the $300 billion valuation floated by NYU professor and author Scott Galloway on last week's show. -------------------------------------------------- Follow BI Video on Twitter: http://bit.ly/1oS68Zs Follow BI on Facebook: http://bit.ly/1W9Lk0n Read more: http://www.businessinsider.com/ -------------------------------------------------- Business Insider is the fastest growing business news site in the US.

NYC preschool accepts bitcoin but doesn't accept credit cards
 
03:19
Marco Ciocca is the co-founder and chairman of The Montessori Schools in Flatiron and Soho. In May the school sent an email to parents alerting them that they could now make their tuition payments in bitcoin. We went to speak to Ciocca at The Montessori Flatiron to find out how the transactions work, why it's better for the school than accepting credit cards, and whether any parents actually paid in bitcoin. Following is a transcript of the video. Sara Silverstein: I’m here with Marco Ciocca, the co-founder and chairman of The Montessori Schools in Flatiron SoHo and also the head of my daughter’s school. Do you accept bitcoin? Marco Ciocca: We do, we do. As of this past summer, we made the decision to accept, at the moment, bitcoin and ethereum. Silverstein: And how did you make that decision? Ciocca: I’d been sorta following the space for a few years — just really noticed that a lot of forward thinking businesses were starting to accept it. The more I looked into it in terms of ease of payment, low fees, speed of the transactions — and I went to a couple of the conferences and spoke to some of the developers to kind of learn the upside and obviously the negatives of accepting it. You know, it sounded like something that really fit with our philosophy at the school. And in that time, also we had probably a handful of parents who mentioned, “Hey do you accept bitcoin? I’ve got this bitcoin. Can we pay tuition in bitcoin?” So all those things kind of put together led us, you know, meet as an administration and decide whether or not to do it. Silverstein: Do you use a third-party system? Ciocca: We do, we do. We have a merchant account with one of the bigger exchanges here in the US. It’s relatively simple to set up and we just send out a request, like an invoice like you would typically and they can just wire it to our wallet. We have a system where it instantly converts to fiat to US dollars. So we don’t actually hold the bitcoin, so we don’t you know, play with kind of floating it or any fluctuation like that. We instantly convert it to dollars and it transfers to our bank account. So it’s as if someone wrote us a check or paid us in cash or sent us a wire. It’s just less expensive and it’s quicker. Silverstein: And is there any sort of transaction fee? Like, what do you get to keep? Ciocca: Yeah, there’s about a 1% transaction fee, which is less than, you know, 2, 3, 4% sometimes with credit cards. And credit cards obviously take – A lot of them get declined and then you have more fees and then you have to recharge them and that’s been kind of, sort of a headache for — especially for schools. Silverstein: So do you accept credit cards? Ciocca: We don’t. We don’t accept credit cards. Silverstein: So you accept cash? Ciocca: Cash, check, wires and bitcoin. Silverstein: To me, originally the — you accepting bitcoin seemed like a bit of a novelty and I have come around completely on that side. Did anybody actually end up paying in bitcoin? Ciocca: Yes, we had about a handful of parents that paid in bitcoin. Among them were some parents who actually, you know, their businesses are based on blockchain. So it was something they were readily familiar with. You know, other parents that are in this space as their, you know, career, go to the school as well. So it’s definitely something that our parent body understood. There were obviously those that were like, you know, “What is this?” And you know, it was quite easy to explain it to them. It’s like paying with, you know, if you’re gonna pay a check or wire. If you don’t want to pay one way or the other, it’s just another form of payment. It’s not something that, you know, you have to do. It’s just something else we offer.’’ Read more: http://www.businessinsider.com/sai FACEBOOK: https://www.facebook.com/techinsider TWITTER: https://twitter.com/techinsider INSTAGRAM: https://www.instagram.com/tech_insider/

Cryptocurrency Is The Next Step In The Digitization Of Everything
 
02:04
Lex Sokolin, Autonomous Research's director of fintech strategy, talks with Business Insider executive editor Sara Silverstein about the importance of cryptocurrency in our increasingly digital world. Following is a transcript of the video.  Sara Silverstein:  So just generally speaking why do things like bitcoin and cryptocurrencies have value? What is it about the blockchain that is going to change the world? Lex Sokolin: So there are a couple of different reasons. The easiest one is supply and demand. if people believe it has value, it will keep having value and more and more of it. But they do have their own use cases. Right, so Bitcoin is a payments vector and you can do with it something you could never do with just a number and a bank account or a piece of cash.  And you can do it without friction. So some folks think that it's the money supply value and then there are other ideas like the work that goes into making bitcoin — into making it a tamper proof. That itself costs money. So some people think that's the production value, so there's lots of reasons to justify why the price should be one thing or another. But at the end of the day it's whoever is willing to pay for it that's what the price is going to be. Silverstein: And why do you think that the digitization of money is the future? Sokolin: The digitization of everything is the future. This has happened already with media, right — with music. And we saw the effect of digitization is essentially your revenues go down 50% in the industry and then the remainder is all digital.And the same thing happened with retail, right?. Amazon you can say is the digital version of all retail. And they own about half the market. And now it's happening to finance and it’s happening to equities, and to capital markets, and in robo advice, and neobanks and insuretech.  And Bitcoin and the digitization of money is just one aspect of that. It’s sort of inevitable.

Red-hot tech stocks aren't as expensive as they look
 
01:18
Business Insider executive editor Sara Silverstein speaks with Brian Levitt, the senior investment strategist at OppenheimerFunds. He notes that the market has been favoring growth stocks like the FANG group, rather than their value counterparts, because we've been in a slow economic growth environment. He then goes on to say that he favors looking at a measure like price-sales ratio when assessing companies like Amazon, because they're a better predictor of future returns. Using that, a lot of stocks that look expensive are actually reasonably priced. Following is a transcript of the video. This transcript has been lightly edited for length and clarity. Sara Silverstein: When you look at the individual stocks, do you see any standouts that are overvalued or undervalued? Brian Levitt: Well the market has been favoring growth in a slow growth world, rather than value stocks. It's sort of paradoxical: when there's no growth you buy growth, when there's a lot of growth you buy value. So since we've been in this slow growth environment, investors have been bidding up those names that are growing. In the US, it's the so-called FAANG stocks — Facebook, Apple, Amazon, Netflix, and Google. But also, if you were to compare those stocks to some of the valuations of some of the bellwether stocks of the 1990s — Intel, Oracle, EMC, Cisco, Microsoft — their valuations are also not even close. Some might push back and say well, Netflix, Amazon, on a price to earnings basis, are very expensive. I would tell them to look at a price to sales basis on Amazon, which by the way is a better predictor of returns. On a price to sales basis, Amazon is pretty reasonably priced. That's not necessarily a stock suggestion, it's just simply saying that you need to look a little bit deeper than come up with these hyperbolic statements that the FAANG stocks are overvalued. It's simply not true. -------------------------------------------------- Follow BI Video on Twitter: http://bit.ly/1oS68Zs Follow BI on Facebook: http://bit.ly/1W9Lk0n Read more: http://www.businessinsider.com/ -------------------------------------------------- Business Insider is the fastest growing business news site in the US.

Overstock CEO And Bitcoin Pioneer Explains His Long-Standing Crypto Play And His Philosophy On Life
 
04:25
Overstock CEO Patrick Byrne sat down with Business Insider's Sara Silverstein to discuss his longstanding belief in cryptos, a revolutionary cryptocurrency called Ravencoin, and his philosophy on life. Following is a transcript of the video. Sara Silverstein: So Overstock.com has been accepting bitcoin for as long as I can remember anyone has. Patrick Byrne: We were the first. We were the first — there was a — the largest company then accepting bitcoin was an $800,000 a year restaurant diner in western Australia. We stepped up and started taking it — we were $1.4 billion. So we often — I like to think that we saved that community about five years in their adoption cycle. Silverstein: And how much of bitcoin are you transferring to cash right now? Byrne: Now we only transfer 50% and the rest we keep in bitcoin. And then periodically, we do — we have cashed in bitcoin and made a few million dollars along the way or five million dollars somewhere like that. But generally, as we go along, we do 50% retain bitcoin 50% USD. Silverstein: And where do you think the bitcoin price should be? Byrne: No idea. No idea. Wherever millions of people through their trading say it should be. I can't read their — there's no way anyway — Silverstein: Yeah, and are you interested in everything cryptocurrency? Or are you really interested in the blockchain? Where do you separate the two? Byrne: Well I'm not really interested in cryptocurrencies per se. Although in general, I guess there's nothing wrong with me saying there is an open-source project of which I'm really letting something big out of the bag here.  I'll tell you. But there's an open-source project called Ravencoin, which Overstock has put millions of dollars into teams. We have people contributing to this open-source project. We think this coin actually has quite a future. It's about — it's bitcoin, but a thousand times more energy efficient. And there's other real interesting virtues to it — so Ravencoin. But other than that, I stay out of the cryptocurrency game. I'm building the — we're focusing on applications of this technology and not just betting on coins themselves. Silverstein: And is that the primary purpose of Ravencoin is to be a more energy efficient version of some of these other cryptocurrencies? Byrne: That's — I'd say that's the first feature it brings to the world. What I hear — from the open-source community and on the message boards —  I know what they are working on and it seems — it's really quite a — I think it has — it was launched January 3 and it's as this open-source project. And I think it has more — last I heard — the number of miners who are now working on it — or it has spread faster than any number of miners of any coin introduced. It's really quite a phenomenon this Ravencoin. So — and what's nice it's democratized. Yeah, it — what happens is, you know, all these coins like bitcoin and such are built on — there's a processor that's solving mathematical problems. And it's possible to build chips that specialize in just that problem. And so you really can't — with your home computer, you're not going to mine any bitcoin anymore unless you have this dedicated ASIC chip.  Well, Ravencoin was designed, so you can't do that — it's ASIC resistant. And that's because the problem that you solve keeps flipping randomly among a bunch of class of problems. Anyway, you can't solve it efficiently with an ASIC’s chip, which means it redemocratizes mining. Anyone can download this software, and you don't have an advantage by having this big mining warehouse in China. Silverstein: And what's your life philosophy? I know you've ridden your bike across country five times? Byrne: Four times Byrne: Don't remind me — Silverstein: I know, just exaggerating — Silverstein: And you obviously run your company different than a lot of people run their companies. Byrne: Is it that obvious? Silverstein: Yeah, just a little bit. What would you say your philosophy is? What keeps you going? What keeps you creative? Byrne: Really? No one has ever asked me that question. Truth is it's service. That's what we're all here for — is service. You know, at some point in your life, you realize it's not about me, and it's not about gaining stuff, it's finding ways to serve other people.

Netflix Is Headed For A Huge Profit Milestone In 2018
 
03:12
CFRA media and entertainment analyst Tuna Amobi spoke to Business Insider's Sara Silverstein about what 2018 holds for Netflix. According to Amobi, “This year is going to be an inflection for Netflix.” Amobi thinks that one of the biggest threats to Netflix in 2018 is other media companies, like Disney, taking their content direct-to-consumer. Following is a transcript of the video. Sara Silverstein: What does 2018 look like for Netflix? Tuna Amobi:  Netflix, I think, has really reached an inflection. This year is going to be an inflection for Netflix where they're going to, for the first time in their history, generate global profitability. That's a very important milestone for Netflix. The international business is going to gain even more traction and a lot has been said about the potential saturation in the domestic market for Netflix. Their results in the past several quarters show that there could be additional upside even within a domestic market. So Netflix has become the preeminent disruptor. And I think they're starting to reap the benefits of the content investments that they've made over the years and they will take those investments even higher this year in 2018. Silverstein: And what's the biggest threat to Netflix? What could derail their success? Amobi:  One of the biggest threats that I see is the idea of a lot of media companies taking their content direct-to-consumer. We heard Disney make that groundbreaking announcement that they're going to pull their content from Netflix and go direct-to-consumer with their Disney and ESPN brands. So as you think about the entertainment landscape, a lot of media companies are watching and they're kind of stepping out of that paradigm where Netflix, as much as they're getting a lot of money from Netflix for their content, but they're starting to view Netflix not necessarily as a friend but potentially as a direct competitor. So I think you're going to see a new paradigm where Netflix is going to be competing not just against the traditional media companies but also some of the Internet and technology companies that are getting ready and starting to spend significant amounts in content investments. Silverstein: And is Facebook Watch a real competitor to Netflix? Amobi: I do believe Facebook Watch is in the early goings. I wouldn't necessarily characterize them as the head-to-head competitor now. But clearly, Facebook is very serious about their content and all of the investments that they've made. And we expect them to ratchet that up this year. Ultimately, I think you're going to have a potential shakeout where you've got the haves and the have-nots, right? The haves are going to be the large media and technology companies, including Netflix. And then, the have-nots are going to be those that are going to find it tough to keep up with the acceleration in content and investments and creativity and innovation that we're all seeing in this new world order. Silverstein: Who's the biggest competitor for Netflix? Who do they have to look out for? Is it Hulu, Amazon, Disney? Amobi: All of the above. All of the names you threw out are ratcheting up their level of investments. Now, Netflix, to be sure, is still far and away the biggest spender in terms of content. But all these names, whether it's Hulu, Amazon, Disney, they're all stepping up their game. So I think Netflix has a very good reason to look over its shoulder in this year 2018 and beyond. -------------------------------------------------- Follow Business Insider on Twitter: https://twitter.com/businessinsider Follow BI on Facebook: http://bit.ly/1W9Lk0n Read more: http://www.businessinsider.com/ -------------------------------------------------- Business Insider is the fastest growing business news site in the US.

GARY SHILLING: Stocks are expensive, and a 'shock' could send them plunging
 
04:56
Dr. Gary Shilling, the president of A. Gary Shilling & Co., spoke to Business Insider CEO Henry Blodget about the stock market, which he views as expensive, citing the Shiller P/E ratio, which is roughly 40% above its historical norm. He doesn't necessarily see them falling apart, but says they're starting at a high level. Shilling shares his thoughts on the end of the eight-year bull market, saying that some sort of exogenous shock could derail it, as well as tightening from the Fed. He also breaks down his forecast that the 10-year US Treasury will go to 1%, noting that we're more likely to see deflation than inflation, which is beneficial to his forecast. -------------------------------------------------- Follow BI Video on Twitter: http://bit.ly/1oS68Zs Follow BI on Facebook: http://bit.ly/1W9Lk0n Read more: http://www.businessinsider.com/ -------------------------------------------------- Business Insider is the fastest growing business news site in the US.

What Everyone Gets Wrong About The Economy
 
03:32
Jim McCaughan, CEO of Principal Global Investors, a fund manager with $445 billion in assets, spoke to Business Insider's Sara Silverstein about what he sees as improper measures of the US economy. Following is a transcript of the video. Sara Silverstein: When you look at the economic picture right now, what do you think people are missing? Jim McCaughan: I think they're missing the impact of technology, and I think it's being underestimated by a lot of commentators. What I mean by that is the consistent improvement in quality of goods and services is not reflected in the official data. If you think about it, the economy is really growing faster than the GDP numbers suggest, because the improvement in quality has accelerated. It's always been built into the GDP numbers, but inadequately. I'd also point out on the economy that capital investment is now a lot more productive than it used to be. Technology makes sure of that. Whether it's the sharing economy that brings assets into productive use, like say Airbnb, or maybe it's if you have a factory that's working 24/7 with robots, or as it used to be a shift system with people. So the capital stock is working much harder. All of this means the interest rates are and will stay lower than most people thought. And I think they're missing this and I think it's important for valuation of every other asset, including equities. Silverstein:  And just to go back to the improper measures of where we are economically speaking, what do you think — like what percentage are we missing in GDP and inflation? How much are those off by? McCaughan: Well I suspect inflation may be overstated by about 1% per annum. And the GDP therefore may be understated by about 1% per annum. And, you know, if you want to have a very general understanding of how that works, here's a question sometimes asked of graduate students in economics — if you took a typical income, say $70,000 a year, would you rather live now or in 1900? And most people will say, "There's been so much inflation 70,000 years, I'd be rich. I'll go for 1900." But then if you really think about it, you wouldn't have technology, you wouldn't have antibiotics, routine diseases that are easily cured now would kill you. Life would be pretty uncomfortable — no appliances. How do you keep in contact with people? You can't travel and see the world. In 1900, even if you are rich, it would be pretty miserable. There's an example of the very long term of the quality improvement I'm talking about. And I think that continues at a very rapid rate. So I think we're better off than the numbers say we are and there's maybe 1% more growth and 1% less inflation than most people think. -------------------------------------------------- Follow Business Insider on Twitter: https://twitter.com/businessinsider Follow BI on Facebook: http://bit.ly/1W9Lk0n Read more: http://www.businessinsider.com/ -------------------------------------------------- Business Insider is the fastest growing business news site in the US.

03:33
Nestlé is considering a sale of its US candy business, and Wall Street is speculating over the most likely buyer of the business. Mondelēz is one potential bidder, according to recent notes from Jefferies, Morgan Stanley and Bloomberg Intelligence. But according to Mondelēz International CEO Irene Rosenfeld, the company doesn't need M&A to deliver growth. In an interview with The Bottom Line, Rosenfeld didn't say outright that Mondelēz isn't interested in purchasing the business, but she seemed to allude to it, saying "We are quite satisfied with the portfolio we have today." -------------------------------------------------- Follow BI Video on Twitter: http://bit.ly/1oS68Zs Follow BI on Facebook: http://bit.ly/1W9Lk0n Read more: http://www.businessinsider.com/ -------------------------------------------------- Business Insider is the fastest growing business news site in the US.

THE BOTTOM LINE: Jim Rogers expects the worst crash in our lifetime
 
21:24
Henry Blodget examines market valuations and the dismal expected returns that go along with them. Jim Rogers says the market will crash in the next few years and calls the Fed clueless. Henry Blodget dives deep into two charts from John Hussman. Based on many different market valuation measures, stocks are extremely expensive. Blodget does point out that stocks can always get more expensive in the short term. However, the expected long-term return on a portfolio of stocks, bonds, and cash is very low based on these valuation levels. An interview with legendary investor Jim Rogers. Rogers predicts a market crash in the next few years. One that he says will rival anything he has seen in his lifetime. He also goes after the Fed. Rogers says the Fed is clueless and is setting the US up for disaster. Rogers likes investing in depressed markets. Rogers says its just like your parents taught you... "Buy low and sell high. Don't buy high and hope it goes higher." He is investing in China, Russia, Japan and agriculture. All these markets are depressed. Unlike the US which is at an all-time high. Though Rogers says the most important thing is to invest in what you know. -------------------------------------------------- Follow BI Video on Twitter: http://bit.ly/1oS68Zs Follow BI on Facebook: http://bit.ly/1W9Lk0n Read more: http://www.businessinsider.com/ -------------------------------------------------- Business Insider is the fastest growing business news site in the US.

ICO performance tracker
Ethereum`s smart contracts platform has gathered lots of attention from a vast range of industries since it could potentially be utilized to digitize and streamline inefficient business processes later on. The majority of the altcoin technologies continue to be significantly underdeveloped. As it is a JavaScript run-time environment, it`ll be familiar to the majority of programmers and therefore will permit you access to an immense pool of talented software developers. Better management indeed should work as a catalyst for those investors. It`s supplied for informational services only. Hence, it might be used for IoT networks, that`s the project`s aim.
The token will be essential to execute many kinds of transactions within the network, like the majority of the token schemes that will do the job. The token will be called ICX and it is going to be one of many that may be transacted in the computer system. The IOTA token is the sole major digital currency that doesn`t use a complete blockchain to conduct transactions.
Each blockchain is made for a particular intent. In general, blockchain powered systems appear to supply benefits to everyone. The really exciting portion of blockchain is the fact that it operates on a decentralized network as opposed to via the traditional client-server model.
The portfolio management tool is user friendly and powerful, giving users an easy and effective approach to make and manage portfolios. It lets users produce and manage portfolios in an easy and efficient way. You should think about whether the info is appropriate to your demands, and where appropriate, seek expert help from a financial adviser. The info is general in nature and doesn`t take into consideration your own personal situation. Let`s take a good look at the site`s features. 12 months past, a number of these review sites didn`t exist. For a bit more on how to make a great looking website you`re able to read this report.
In the event the project gets successful, there`ll be greater demand for those tokens which with reduced supply, will raise the costs of the tokens. The NXT project is among the longest standing blockchain projects in the market these days. Funding without venture capital, investment banks or even crowdfunding platforms like IndieGoGo or Kickstarter also provides an enormous chance to the investors, who might support their favourite merchandise and services with no third-party intervention. There`s no investment that`s 100% guaranteed. Within this way you can steadily develop your everyday income. Not only does this help people send and get money without needing to pay excessive fees, but in addition it empowers people by allowing them more anonymity when it has to do with their financial affairs. For instance, a growing number of leading banks enjoy using Ripple in their everyday operations.
The incorrect type of team can wind up with an ineffective working relationship. We think they will be able to carry it off, and that more talent is going to be attracted to the technically huge ambitions of the undertaking. Ability to find the long-term view and ignore daily fluctuations is challenging to master and simple to overlook. It is vital to recognize credible opportunities, because not each one of them will succeed. Invest just what you can afford to lose. Only some of these actually take a token to bootstrap and track the worth of the network. Nearly all sites utilize the ERC-20 standard to satisfy this endeavor.

The acryptoa portion of the word denotes the cryptography used to ensure the blockchain, and the acurrencya portion of the word denotes the ability to exchange the tokens for goods and solutions. The absolute pacifism part is assumed I think, in spite of someone having the capability to locate some examples where it may appear otherwise. What you share is is an instance of absolute terror onto people who ought to be fought if it may be. The numbers won`t be good. Today they are much higher.
You`ll reap the benefits for the very long haul if you stick with your advertising and marketing guns. There are certain sorts of offerings that have special exemptions from the full blown registration practice. The range is hard to specify, taking into consideration the diversity in choices. According to the provision, the scope of the very first transaction in NEPSE is within three times the provider`s book value.
When the project is completed, the tokens value is probably going to increase because there is currently a tangible item, instead of simply an idea. After all, research demonstrates that clients use their networks to choose consultants more than every other method, and they, without doubt, know somebody who knows you. Getting knowledge in the region of property investment is insufficient. You may observe I didn`t speak about a few skills. After all, in case you have a saleable skill, it`s a simple business to enter.
A collection company cannot collect any sum of money that isn`t permitted by law or by agreement. Furthermore, it would be required to show the terms of that agreement in court. It is not surprising that consulting is attractive to numerous individuals who wish to launch a company. You also have to know the way the corporation will account for the exchanging of tokens. Starting a public company is a complicated and costly undertaking. Doing so makes a contract that might be binding. If you haven`t signed a contract with the collection business, you owe them nothing.
Inside my view there is just one house, and all of us live in it. Property should not be damaged. In addition, should the property is well-connected to the public transport, then it aids in giving a good advantage, particularly for the middle-class family.
As previously mentioned, the majority of the above coins are offered for purchase direct from the Royal Mint. Offerings where the total raised is less than one million dollars come beneath a special procedure that is far less complicated. Once more, money well spent. Another method is to commit your own money. It s pretty obvious to anybody who reads the accounts. You DON`T need to make a new account.
Enterprises and entire countries are now able to block Tor traffic without any issues. Nobody is suggesting that it isn`t the work of liberal Whites to oppose what`s wrong. To the contrary, the investments with the period of time of over five years are called as long-term investments. Original investors can then opt to sell their tokens to earn a significant profit.
