While markets have continued to melt up cries of bubble and commentary on the onslaught of companies clearly benefiting from these dynamics in spite of ridiculous valuations and questionable business models and practices have exploded. One of the brightest young stars in short selling, Edwin Dorsey, author of "The Bear Cave" newsletter is capitalizing on the amount of quality short seller research being produced by curating others research and producing his own short "leads." In this interview with Max Wiethe, Dorsey helps viewers make sense of the current market froth, describes his own unique process for generating short ideas, and runs through two recent targets of his newsletter as case studies of what he is looking for in this market. Filmed on January 12, 2021. Key Learnings: Dorsey highlights that the time has never been better for short sellers but cautions against shorting blindly, especially in overly frothy industries like EVs, and explains why he likes targeting 1$-$10 billion companies flying under most analysts' radar.

Bonds Bite Back: How and When Will the Fed Respond?
Peter Boockvar, CIO of Bleakley Advisory Group and editor of The Boock Report, joins Real Vision managing editor Ed Harrison to break down today’s volatile price action in bonds and high beta stocks. Boockvar explains that Fed Chairman Powell’s dovish comments earlier in the day triggered another sell-off in bonds as the market, emphasizing their fear of inflationary pressures to come in 2021, pushed back on the Fed for staying the course. Harrison and Boockvar explore a few different scenarios where the Fed could begin to move against the rise in rates including ramping up their bond buying programs and implementing yield curve control. They also examine the consequences of these actions and the possibility that the Fed will refrain from intervening until markets begin to break. Finally, Boockvar discusses equities, considering the potential winners and losers in this environment.

The Reflationary Handbook: Short Tech, Long Energy
Teddy Vallee, founder and CIO of Pervalle Global, returns to Real Vision to share his latest views on economic growth, interest rates, commodities, and tech stocks. Citing everything from soaring retail sales figures to elevated levels of personal savings, Vallee projects that economic growth for U.S. GDP could be as high as 12%. In this reflationary environment, Vallee expects that bonds will continue to sell-off and that energy stocks will thrive while technology stocks will fare poorly. Filmed on March 1, 2021. Key learnings: Due to his lofty projections for economic growth (around 12%), Vallee estimates that U.S. nominal and real 10 year Treasury yields are likely to rise 100-150 basis points over the following 12-14 months. Accordingly, he expects tech multiples compression 20-30%, and energy equities, particularly those in Latin America, performing well. Because energy comprises a small percentage of the S&P 500 relative to tech, this period of reflationary growth could actually result in negative returns for the broad index.

Bonds, Commodities, and the Fed's Moment of Truth
In the first segment, Lyn Alden of Lyn Alden Investment Strategy shares with Real Vision editor Jack Farley her thoughts on how the ongoing rout in U.S. Treasurys will amplify the rotation away from growth stocks and into cyclical stocks. Alden opines on how the Federal Reserve could aim to reassert control over the bond market, whether it be “Operation Twist” or yield curve control. In the second and final segment, Farley welcomes Howard Klein, founder and partner at RK Equity, to give a strategic update of key parts of the mining sector such as graphite, nickel, and, most notably, lithium. Klein shares news on lithium miners such as Albemarle Corp ($ALB), Livent Corp ($LTHM), and Piedmont Lithium ($PLL), to which Klein is an advisor and is also up over 1000% since September 1, 2020. Klein explains why he thinks we are at the beginning of a commodity bull market and shares his views on MP Materials ($MP) and Nouveau Monde Graphite ($NMGRF).
