Why there is no such thing as a 'no landing' scenario for the economy (4 min read)

Investors are contemplating a "no landing" scenario as the US economy continues to outperform expectations. This newly-coined scenario considers a situation in which inflation doesn't cool while economic growth continues, even as interest rates remain elevated. Although some investors seem to be betting on this outcome, at least one economist believes this narrative is nonsensical as the economy is cyclical and landing after a peak is inevitable.

How to Tell If an ETF Is Overvalued (5 min read)

Although it is not foolproof, there are methods to determine whether an ETF is overvalued. Investors can look at the value of the ETF itself or the valuation of its underlying holdings. For the ETF’s valuations, investors can analyze the NAV, market price, and the intraday indicative value. For the valuation of the ETF’s underlying holdings, investors can use metrics similar to stock analysis such as P/E and P/B ratios, and compare it to a comparable benchmark. More details of each valuation method are available in the article.
Billionaire George Soros Bets on Asset Manager Cathie Wood (3 min read)

According to a recent regulatory filing, legendary investor George Soros acquired call options on the ARK Innovation ETF (ARKK) in Q4. The call options gave him the right to buy 500,000 shares of ARKK, which were valued at $15.26 million at the time. So far this year, ARKK has rebounded around 31% after suffering a major sell-off last year, and Soros’s call option shares are currently valued at $20.4 million. Soros, believing the price of ARKK will rise, reinforces Cathie Wood’s strategy as he mostly bets against investments.
