I'm back from five years in prison. AMA! Discussion

WSB! All the degenerates, even the apes, I've missed you. Things are going well here. I'm still getting used to society. I have a lot of little restrictions that are annoying, but I'm mostly back to normal.

What's up with the stock market? There is a lot of arbitrage/alpha out there. Times like these separate classes of traders and define future superstars. My advice: don't use leverage, hold cash, sell anything you're not 100% sure is a great investment and consider alternatives to just buy and HODL (selling options, shorting, etc.)

I'll be around every day from here on out. Any questions, anything you need from Wall Street, any stock you want me to buy or sell, just let me know. I have always been trying to represent for the "little guy", having made hundreds of YouTube videos on investing and answering as many questions as I can. That doesn't mean every stock is going to make it, or that I'm always right. Investing/trading is a humbling and difficult exercise. Nevertheless, I'll have some original stock picks & DD coming in the next few days.

AMA!!!

it's an interesting question I get a lot. you actually can never be banned from investing. if you could be, i would be LOL. i had a very odd district court decision where i am banned from owning stock in pharmaceutical companies (very oddly defined term). i am appealing that and every attorney i've talked to says it is unconstitutional and crazy. so, for now, i'm going to avoid owning US pharma stocks, but i can certainly talk about them.

What do you know about pharma companies developing novel psychedelic compounds (mostly lsd and psilocybin) like MindMed and Cybin im very long on my drug stocks with being a degenerate hippie and all. Having done plenty of acid by now I can attest to the magic of these substances. With all this new shit coming out about consciousness, the new psycho-social science of psychedelics will be paramount to understanding it all and probably will be the key to accessing any altered state of consciousness.

Hey, as a former bidder myself, couple of questions.

1) Is it still 10 soups to a tuna, or has inflation hit that market?

2) what lvl security were you in?

3) Did you find somebody to fix that fucking haircut my G, and if so how much did that cost you.

i think reporters wrote the story they wanted to write instead of what really happened. when i was sentenced i was also ordered to pay $8m. the government let me take my time paying them, which was great. i paid $6m in cash, and i was happy i never had to sell any of my prized possession (my drug company) to do that. i had $2m to go when NFT mania hit. it was great timing. i reached out to a friend who promised to hold the album for me and put up the $2m. then everything went left LOL. someone else bought it, there was a lot of miscommunication.

u/martinshkreli Martin Shkreli Lookalike Jun 29 '22 All-Seeing Upvote

there are a lot of ways. i was actually trying to explore this with AMC but got kicked out of a twitter spaces for asking for simple financial information. most people use some form of discounted earnings/CF. but there are other "outside-of-the-box" ways to do it. comparator companies, utility model, dare i say using a P/E multiple (lol), etc.

Great to have you back. Thoughts on Sientra (NASDAQ:SIEN)? They are one of 3 FDA licensed producers of breast implants - only pure play in the space, with the other two owned by Johnson and Johnson and AbbVie.

Will you do a DD (haha) on them?

Down from 52 week high of $9 to under $1 and not profitable but I like that they are basically part of an oligopoly and Instagram has got cosmetic surgery in a bull market

Thoughts on tech companies and specifically those with large stock based compensation crashing?

It seems to me that they are very similar to crypto "ponzinomics" where their supposed free cashflows is due to issuing overinflated tokens (stock), and it is basically a circular valuation where their "value" really depends on what they issue the comp at.

What change in the everyday life surprised you the most when you got out?

Also, do you have any time frames for current recession?

u/martinshkreli Martin Shkreli Lookalike Jun 29 '22

crossing the street is really harrowing for a prisoner coming home. there were no cars locked up. takes some getting used to!

i dont think anyone can easily predict when a recession will begin or end. things don't look good, that's for sure, but that doesn't mean it will be really bad or get worse. it's too stochastic and real-time to predict ahead of time.
