As terrifying as this economic happening is, browsing /biz/ lately has been one of the most entertaining things I have done on the internet in years. Screaming Wojaks and crying Pepes everywhere, interspersed with shit-posting bobo bears. I haven't laughed this much in a long time.
It's fun to hop on every time there's a large swing in BTC pricing, seeing the hopes and dreams of digital gold crushed every other day is wonderful.

Might fuck around and buy some stocks in ROSS when they drop lower. I can only imagine that off-price retailers will become more prominent in the next year or two.

We are about halfway done with the crash, the other half may take a year or two. A smart or lucky stock picker could do very nicely here.

Combination of central banks going brrrrr and pension funds having to defend their values at any cost is especially interesting. If pensions melt away there is a decent chance of armed revolution by people who no longer fear death.

is now a good time to invest in stonks when they eventually rebounce back to normal?
i'd wait, i think the real issue here is that nobody knows what prices should be, which is why we're getting wild 5%+ swings on the indices every day. i'm currently shorting the the major ETFs (SPY/DIA/QQQ) and have some calls on pharma co's. i don't think it'll work out but we'll see. it's just really wild out there right now. long term, we're in a recession without a doubt, the virus was the major domino here. i would plan accordingly, but that's just me.

I just took my first leap into the markets.
You know... "Buy the dips" and all that jazz.

I bought 13 in GE since they'll probably be tapped to help with the manufacture of ventilators and whatnot over coronachan.
A few in a penny stock and then I took a little leap of faith on Dogecoin.

I'm an uneducated and uncultured American. But if Doge ever breaks the $1 mark, I'm gonna be rich boi

Who knows? But by being smart you can mitigate the risks, and by being smart I mean diversifying like a motherfucker!

I started my investing today. I have 1/3rd of my cash pile separated for weekly investments into index funds. At current rate it takes 26 weeks to push it all in. 2/3rd I have waiting until I either believe the disaster is over or until companies underlying stocks look both cheap and healthy. At that point I will dump everything into index funds in 10 weekly installments.

In addition I've stopped paying my mortgage for 12 months and am talking about a significant investment loan. Mortgage money goes towards index funds. Loan may go into blue chip stocks if companies look both cheap and healthy.

My criteria for healthy:

- reasonable business model
- steady income

My criteria for cheap:

- P/E under 10
- P/B reasonable but preferably under 1

Aim is to earn 100-200% profit within the next 10 years. I will not be able to time to the bottom so I will not even attempt to. Instead, buying index at reasonable prices will give me the average market performance and I predict this downturn will last no more than 3-4 years max. As long as I keep buying more (and central banks will go BRRRR) I will do just fine in 10 years time.

If you've never invested into stocks, we are now at about 2017 levels. It is still not cheap but it is not massively overpriced either. I would say they are about "normal"-ish now, situation notwithstanding. If you start saving a small sum into index funds now you should be able to make a nice profit within the next 10 years. Try saving a monthly $100 or so into an index fund or two to see how it goes and go from there. Remember that stocks are held for a long time: if you are going for a quick profit may I suggest roulette wheel instead?

My criteria for healthy:
Earnings are going to take a significant hit for a couple quarters so the PE ratios are going to fluctuate. We're in a recession, so the question becomes can the corporation survive a recession, and if it's loaded up on debt, it won't. Lookup "zombie company".

so germany is going all out to save companies. new debt equivalent of 10% of the GDP will be used for rescue and revitalisation. thats ontop of all other messurements already in place. the economy in germany is not as affected as other countries because service is on a lower level and will come back pretty fast(there will always be demand for services).

Sure. Liabilities are in B part of P/B, loading up on debt sort of kills that part. And in any case the company needs to be otherwise healthy. I don't mind sitting years on the stock but it has to be a good one.

How much further do you think Mouse Corp will drop before things swing back up? I'm tempted to bite.
Same here, but I've been getting the feeling people might want to more away from Disney in general. Seems like everyone I talk to is tried of their franchises. Then again Disney does seem to always find a way to pull itself up in the long run.

As with any stock market advice I may as well be reading tea leaves but I would suggest holding off on buying at the moment.
The bottom probably has not been reached, there will be more panic in the coming days and weeks.
Even if we are around the bottom already you're not going to miss a significant rally until we start hearing positive news- decline in cases or businesses reopening, which won't be this week or next.

I think the bigger issue is that they own so many properties and have so much debt. They could potentially collapse at some point, depending on how Bad things get for them. I believe they recently took on 6bil more debt to pay off older debt.

I agree with both posts, but I still feel like Disney is one to watch. You may not want to actually buy any shares anytime soon but their fate could affect the entertainment industry as a whole. Disney could get to the point they might be forced to sell ip's like Star Wars, which like have a ripple effect consider of the merchandise rights tied to it.

Think about more I wouldn't buy any shares of anything tired to the movie industry since all big studios have stopped filming and what little box office revenue they were getting has stopped.
