Your Week In Brief; Big Trouble in Little Hollywood

The stock was in the green this week after releasing another denial of fraud allegations levied at the company courtesy of Wolfpack Research back in April. Citing in-person surveys of more than 1,500 people and Chinese credit reports of iQiyi’s VIEs and WFOEs, the short seller claimed that the Chinese entertainment platform overstated its user numbers and inflated its revenues in SEC filings by as much as 261.7% pre-IPO. Further, in 2019, Wolfpack estimated that iQiyi inflated revenue by 27% to 44%. Are they another Luckin Coffee? Maybe. But like Luckin, iQiyi can be both a liar and long-term winner.

Your Week in a Brief; I have Debt

The real worry for many economists isn’t the debt on the books, which as discussed isn’t a problem so long as payments are manageable, but the “off-balance sheet liabilities,” which are spending commitments that fall outside of the promise to pay back borrowed money. The bulk of these commitments are Social Security, pension guarantees, Medicare, and Medicaid.

Your Week In Brief; Bet on Political Volatility and Market Stability

Maher was right: Trump would rather set a fuse to our democracy than admit defeat. Even in the unlikely event of a blowout Biden victory, Trump will stay in office until a deep state statesman tosses him out. One thing the conspiracy-obsessed Trump supporters do have right is that thereis indeed a deep state despite Trump’s efforts to replace everyone in the government with sycophants. At least I hope so; we will need them.

Yes, even after that Pfizer thing. And neither are any of those cruise or airplane stocks. While the week began as the long-awaited rotation out of stay-at-home tech and into the beaten-down travel sector, the rotation already came and went.
