FTX: Beyond the Headlines With John Berlau

"Quick detour here because you brought this up and I was just reading this this morning. This environmental government issue that we're talking about ASC stuff is there's a lot of concern among Wall Street right now, especially going into directors meetings and elections or directors and some of the rulings that they can't block the groupings of here's the directors that the company is pushing here, the ones that the activist, if you would push, is this something that, again, any sort of branches all from what semi free was doing, is this a concern on or is it just mainly just fear of companies, but is there a real concern that activists and others who are pushing these agendas could get footholds on some of these large boards buying more than others? There is a real concern and it's going to be on top of sarbanes oxley and you know which the rush through after enron, which I've written about and affected earlier and died Frank, it's going to mean less companies go public in the first place or only go public when they're very big and who loses out from that. You know, mom and pop investor. And again, these agendas are going to be at the expense of the financial well-being of Joe and Jane for four-o-one-ks. It was kind of two sides at the same time. They allowed the SEC allowed fraud and an ESG firm to apparent fraud in ESG firm like FTX to faster and they're having their encouraging all these agendas that harm investor return.

The Life and Times of Sammy Davis Jr

"Now, to go back to knowing what all there is to know about Sammy, he was born in Harlem, 1925 at the age of three, he went on the road with his father, and they appeared with a man they called the boy's uncle. They called his wet and sky will masten, Sami's uncle. And they developed the will mast and trio. And since they grew up in a very segregated world of the black vaudeville circuit without any formal education and they had to overcome racism of white audiences, Jamie Davis knew all along that he had no choice but to succeed. He had to. And again, James Baldwin, who sat me down a couple of times and told me great stories, he said that Sammy Davis told him at one point he had to decide between greatness and madness. And he chose greatness. He was very smart. He was one of the smartest people to perform ever. Probably a entertainment genius, really. He understood show business just completely. He never stopped studying it. But since he was on tour from the age of three, it took its toll. He never learned to write, he was a really big reader, he read constantly during his conversion to Judaism after the big 1954 car accident that cost him his left eye. One of his William Morris agents left the agency to become Davis business partner, sign marsh. And to the day he died, he could sign his name, but he could not write. That's why he never personalized autographs to anyone. Because he couldn't spell people's names. And he was embarrassed of it. But he went through some shit in the army Sammy Davis, he'd been drafted into the army to fight, and he did, but he fought with southerners in southwestern and they got their kicks fucking around with them and needling them. And he said he got his ass kicked every couple of days when he was just in the army. His nose was broken, countless times, which you can plainly see that. Permanently flattened, they used to give him beer to drink before they poured half out and pissed in the rest of it. Just disgusting stuff. And he finally was assigned to special services where he performed in camp shows around the country. And he just loved to make audiences laugh and have a good night out. That's what broke down the barriers eventually between the two sides.

Why Christian Walker Denounced His Father

"This was very difficult for me and I know my wife is going to be mad that I'm talking about this to a certain degree, but I'm not going to go all full crazy with it. Herschel Walker, let me just start with what I think about Herschel Walker. And then we'll talk about the controversy of how his son came out against him. And I know Christian walker. I mean, I know of him. My wife knows him pretty good. She was messaging him yesterday and accidentally, hey, are you okay? What's going on? With the things that he said on social media about Herschel Walker and then there's a rumor that her walker forced a woman to have an abortion now. I want to give you a warning. If you are sensitive, you might not want to listen to what I have to say because I'm not going to hold back on what I actually feel about these whole allegations situations. However, let me start with what I feel about Herschel Walker. When I met her walker, and then also I've seen him on plenty platforms, I follow him on social media, I don't know him, right? He's not my daddy. I have a great father. He's not my dad. I don't know the man that well. However, the way he comes across, it seems to be very genuine. He seems like a genuine, good hearted Christian individual. Now, some of these allegations about Herschel Walker is from his past. Now, for those who don't know, Herschel Walker was an NFL football player, I don't know if he's been inducted in Hall of Fame, but from my stance and how I know him to be such an electrifying football player, I would argue that he's a Hall of Famer. And Herschel Walker played football, obviously he had his kids. There's rumors that he have multiple kids by multiple women. And he didn't raise none of them. It's from what his son, Christian has said on his social media. However, I don't see her she walk up in that way, but I do understand it. I don't know that man. Now, let me get into some more of these allegations. This is what bothers me about what Christian walker did and this is what bothers me in general about how people always bring up another person's past. There's always two sides to the coin.

A Huge Controversy Has Erupted Over Herschel Walker in Georgia

A Huge Controversy Has Erupted Over Herschel Walker in Georgia

"Huge controversy has erupted over Herschel Walker in Georgia, a very ugly controversy, his son Christian walker, who's one of this podcast weighing in and there are some people who think it's very bad for Herschel Walker's chances in Georgia. And this, of course, would mean that virtual communist Raphael Warnock would have 6 more years, a kind of almost a nightmarish prospect of something that's made even more nightmarish occurring in a red state. Now, I'm going to talk in more detail about all of this tomorrow because I want to go into some of the details of it, but I'm not going to do that here. Here I want to take a broader view of what's happening with the U.S. Senate. Now, first, let me say that I think the issue in Georgia is not Herschel Walker's behavior. Rather, it is due we and by we here, I mean, Georgians, but also Americans, do we want someone as far left as Rafael Warnock to be representing a red state? And perhaps tipping the balance or keeping the balance for the Democrats in the U.S. Senate. Think about the long-term implications of the Democrats having Senate control implications for a Supreme Court implications for so many other things. So very difficult for us as Republicans to keep our eye on the ball. We're often sort of trapped into this. Our candidate has moral failings. We've got to pull out our long knives and sort of stab him ourselves. Democrats would never do this. If Raphael Warnock did exactly what Herschel Walker did. Exactly the same. The left would a, laugh it off, dismiss it. Pooh pooh it, ignore it. And second of all, even more audacious, they would turn around and accuse the publications and talked about it of racism for going after a black man, and a pastor, how dare you, so look at the difference in psychology between the two sides.

Hurricanes and Climate Change? It's Mother Nature, Stupid

"I was on the interview with a young lady earlier today and she had asked me, she said, you know, what do you think about climate change? And I said, well, look, I have a few theologies about it because there's no consensus amongst amongst climatologists. I think I'm saying that, right? Climatologists, there's no consensus. Some believe that there's absolutely nothing that we're doing that can affect climate change or global warming or whatever the term they want to use now to trick you. And then there's some that believe that it is so. They both have credentialed credentialed degrees. I don't understand how somebody can just say, I'm going to pick one side over the other. And then I use this thing that's very rare today. It is a rare commodity, and it's called common sense. I use common sense to then decipher what do I believe? Because the two sides are opposing, I listen to both sides and obviously decide that there seems more reasonable to me is that there's no way in a word that we're having a tremendous effect. It's going to change the weather of the globe. When you got to think we only been driving cars and producing the emissions that we've been doing for the last hundred years,

Tech Writer Joe Allen Describes Transhumanism and Its Implications

"Joe Allen joins us right now. Joe, welcome to the program. Charlie, thank you very much. Good to be here. So Joe, let's make it, let's somewhat simple for some listeners that have no idea what we're talking about and then we'll go a little deeper as we progress. What is transhumanism? Well, the simplest definition of transhumanism is the goal to merge human beings with machines. Both mechanical technology but particularly digital technology. So the two sides of that biology and technology and trying to find the middle ground not only conceptually, but in practice. So people talk about transhumanism, oftentimes they're talking about everything from brain chips to fully conscious artificial intelligence to genetic engineering in particular the desire to create superhumans and kind of eugenic program where instead of selective breeding being employed alone, you're talking about genetic editing. Now, one really important aspect of transhumanism as a movement is the religious connotations of all of this, not just opposition to traditional religion, but transhumanism is a fully expressed techno religion. It has a creation narrative. It has a Salvation narrative and in particular, the more importantly it has an apocalyptic narrative. So the creation story is human evolution by way of natural selection, which leads flawed genes, and then the Salvation story lies in correcting these flaws and perfecting humanity through technology.

It All Goes Back to Hillary Clinton...

"You see what's happened. You see how you have two sides that are so torn and so divided in a very unproductive way and it all goes back to Hillary Clinton and what she was saying now. Look, you can say, look, the Russians, they had a hand in these bad accounts, et cetera. I'm sorry. Ultimately, what it came down to was the delivery of a poor message, especially on the economic front, from her, and kind of that people just didn't like her, right? I mean, I think that's so much of what politics is. Unfortunately, I like to believe it's all policy and policy does matter. But a lot of it comes down to likeability, you could also say that in 2020, a lot of people voted for Biden and against Trump because it was a vote against Trump. Again, not caring about the policy and you see the consequence of that right now. With so much inflation in our economy, Joe Biden is out there giving a speech saying, hey, isn't this economy? Great. People are making more money than ever. No, not when adjusted for inflation. They're absolutely not. And the unemployment rate is strangely low, but unfortunately I have a feeling that's because a lot of people have opted out of the workforce. You look at the productivity labor. Participation rate, our productivity is not hot, by the way. But you look at the labor participation rate and you're not seeing enough people that want to be in this workforce. And that comes with consequences.

"Is here to kind of help us do a little postgame, Jack, what'd you think? Well, Charlie, I thought it was really interesting the way Alex came in kind of weaved everything through and you certainly got him to express his take on not just the Trump raid or his own trial, but so many things that are going on. And really gave us a Tapestry of looking at at least, you know, through his lens where we're where we're going and I appreciate the fact that, you know, we always know there's two sides to every story, right? And whether we can agree with one or the other and say, well, this is wrong or this is right. We ought to at least have the airing out of that. And that's the point of having these public platforms. And that's the point of having freedom of speech. But what I thought was interesting is that Alex didn't spend the time beleaguering his case or whining about himself or complaining about what he's being put through. I mean, he took the fight directly to the front line and said, this is about a regime and a global cabal that isn't just after him, it's actually after every single one of us because they want to make us these emasculated just satiated insectoids that are just following along, seeing whatever the next streaming thing is on Netflix and then not actually taking action and human agency. And I think you could see that in his own way, right? In his own way, he runs to he wants to feel like he's helping people and he wants to do the right thing. This isn't a guy who they were they tried to portray him as, oh, you just care about the money and you're just a sell out and all this. And I don't know. That's not the sense I got.

So if I may, please endow me, what is Taiwan, how was it formed, and why does it matter? Let's start with the basics with regards to Pelosi's recent trip. When the communists won the Chinese Civil War in 1947. The nationalist forces under Shanghai shek, our Friends, to camped en masse to the little island of then called formosa or Taiwan. And established an alternative Chinese state, the republic of China. All the international agreements agreed that this island was part of China the same way say Puerto Rico is part of the United States. However, they had opposing governments in the stood each other off. Now, in 1972, when Richard Nixon and Henry Kissinger went to China and began the process of restoring diplomatic relations, they agreed that Taiwan and China were part of the same country and then it was up to the Chinese to the two sides to work out what their common future was without American interference. That was the Shanghai communique of 1972. And I spoke to one of the original members of the Nixon delegation who helped draft that communique. In 1972, and I was told that Pelosi's visit to China was a really terrible idea because it violated the spirit of the agreement. Why

"I talk frequently in Debbie and I do also on the podcast about the divide between red America, blue America, but is this divide getting worse? Are we in fact approaching what could be called a great divergence? In which two parts of the country really pull almost irreconcilably apart. I say irreconcilably because you can only have a common ground when you agree about your goals. But you disagree about means. If you agree that America should be prosperous, you can argue about how to get there. If you agree on protecting life, you can argue about what's the best way to do that. Problem is when the two sides want to go in different directions. They disagree about ends. Now, this certainly occurred in the time leading up to the Civil War. In which the essentially wig and then Republican north began to diverge from the pro slavery democratic south. And disagree fundamentally. It wasn't just, at the time of the founding, there was a kind of virtually universal agreement that slavery was a bad thing, even if it should be temporarily tolerated. It should not be allowed to grow or to expand and the slave trade. We should not be allowed to proliferate. But what happened in the early 19th century was you got two sides, one of which basically said slavery is bad and should be restricted. The other which sets slavery is good and should be expanded.

When the two sides in the abortion debate squared off at the Supreme Court last fall, they agreed on one thing. There was no middle ground. Now any hope abortion rights supporters have of avoiding a historic loss before the court lies with chief justice John Roberts crafting an unlikely compromise rights Politico. Can Robert thread that needle, how would he do it? A deep dive into Robert's public speeches and commentary at court arguments may offer somewhat of a road map to what a Roberts compromise might be on row if he's able to find one at the 11th hour.

"two sides" Discussed on CNBC's Fast Money

"Check out shares of Macy's topping the tape today and soaring 17 and a half percent. You'll remember that just days ago activists investor jani partners took a stake in Macy's urging it to spin off its ecommerce unit today's pop follows reports that the ecommerce unit of Sachs is preparing for an IPO with the valuation roughly triple what it was pegged out earlier this year. Karen, I don't know how you figure out a valuation of a company of a unit that is so tightly connected to the parent company. Yeah, I don't know how you figure out where it happens to sales that are done in the store and then go online for returns or vice versa. I guess they can use the sax model, however, they figured it out, but it also Macy's has some debt. I wonder where the debt goes. I would think it stays with these sort of old line company, but all that having been said, I mean, what a year for Tim's Macy's. I don't own it, but clearly maybe Jana knew that they would that tax was considering this IPO, good for them. I mean, 17 and a half percent today, I mean, it's gone up at least a few times on the same news. And what do you do with the stock? You still hold it. Well, I mean, look, again, look at the 15% short interest. And imagine what you're feeling right now if you're short as we talked about earlier in the show, I just think that there's an argument here that, first of all, this is generating free cash flow. It's got intrinsic value with real estate. And look, the sax benchmark is pretty extraordinary when you think. Sax was taken private for about a billion and a half. They then spun off the ecommerce unit and got an investment last year from inside partners for a 2 billion valuation when they had a billion in sales. So two times sales. Now they're talking about 6 billion for that same unit. And I don't know where sales are, but let's call it 5 times sales. And so start to impute that upon the ecommerce business at Macy's, which is going to be 43% soon. The numbers get very interesting and the short interest gets very nervous. All right, chairs of IBM meantime coming under pressure today and some comments made by short seller. Jim chanos right here on CNBC. What's so fascinating about IBM to us is that it's a good example of what I teach my class here at Wisconsin today about the idea of sometimes the greatest scams are hiding right in plain sight through the use of pro forma accounting. And what I wanted to point out to your listeners, your viewers is that IBM's supposed to earn almost $11 this year. For the trailing 12 months, they've earned less than $9. But the really fascinating thing from our perspective, if you look at IBM's operating earnings and add their IP royalty stream and tax it at a normal 21%, the actual earnings are $6. IBM responded firing back, telling CNBC in part, IBM never gave an $11 EPS expectation. You can read IBM's full statement on CNBC pro. Guy domi, we've talked a long time about financial engineering in the context of IBM. And the fact that, well, I mean, if in fact, that is what's going on. They did a pretty miserable job because the stock's been in an 8 year downtrend. I mean, recently seemingly we've broken that down trend. But with that said, I mean, it obviously has been an underperformer on a tape. It's just been magnificent and the company that has not been able to sort of turn things around despite a huge acquisition, obviously, in the form of Red Hat, which you have to wonder at some point, you know, does that start to pay dividends? You know, Jim Chan does extraordinary work. I'm sure he's watching right now. You know, when he put something out there like this, he's not being glib, and he's obviously done the work to support it. This earnings release on thinking on this Wednesday is going to be as fascinating and IBM releases we've seen probably in the last ten years based on what Jim just said. I mean, Jeff, one of the greatest scams, some of the greatest scams are hiding in plain sight, the strong words. How do you feel about IBM? Yeah. Yeah, very strong words. I think the most interesting thing about IBM to me is that it's actually not cheap financial engineering or not on a Ford P basis. If you go back and look out, look through history, it's expensive as it's been since 2008. So, you know, they've lost market share across all of their segments. It's just been a tough business and shockingly to me the valuation is not more attractive just given how the stock is performed recently. So it's still a tough story overall for me. All right, coming up, a killer,.

It's the world's largest Bitcoin fund with about 3.5% of all global Bitcoin supply in that fund. It's been the main on ramp for investors like Kathy wood, for example, to get exposure to crypto. Grayscale, confirming today that it does plan to convert that fund to a spot ETF eventually and CEO Michael son and John telling squawk box this morning that he expects competitive pressure going forward and they stand ready to reduce fees. But one other big thing analysts have been watching, the grayscale discounting. It used to be a premium, but it's been trading at a discount and roughly 15% discount to the price of Bitcoin since earlier this year. That's been blamed on a 6 month lockup period of initial investments in that fund. Holders aren't able to redeem shares and react to bitcoins. Market price in real time. Sources have been telling me the traders in some cases are buying grayscale betting that that spread would collapse if it is approved as an ETF and they're using it as sort of a way to buy Bitcoin at a discount. Melissa, Kay, thank you, Kate Rooney. Karen, we actually have talked about this in the past that discount. I'm wondering what your thoughts on that seems like it would have to close. It would have to trade apart some point if it's going to be an ETF reflective of the price. Right. This is the kind of thing you and I talk about actually. The GBTC discount rate. I mean, in prior, in its prior life before there were other products, it actually had that premium when Bitcoin was in a frenzy and people would pay over, which never quite understood. But I don't know how easy it is going to be for them to convert. But at the discount here, it's practically as wide as it's been. I think 21 or two is what it's been. I think it was 18 today. So I don't know, you know, Kate mentioned maybe people buying that. Can you short the future against it and see if that spread narrows? That would seem to be a not super risky bet, but you'd have to it sounds like hang on to your GBTC for a while. I think this size of this discount is interesting. Yeah, Jeff? Yeah, I mean, I think that's something investors just need to pay attention to in terms of the tracking area associated with some of these things that aren't actually owning the cryptocurrency. I think that's super important. If you look at the past year, Bitcoin up over 300% grayscale up a little less than 200%. So there is going to be a massive difference when you're not actually holding Bitcoin. I think that's important. There'll be less of a difference in a futures ETF, for example, but still you're not owning Bitcoin, so I think that's important to know, and it's not going to track the spot price. Again, I think the Holy Grail is an ETF that invests directly in Bitcoin. I think this is a step in that direction, but we're not there yet. And the timing is uncertain. So in terms of the narrowing of that discount, the timing is uncertain there too. All right, coming up, short.

"Shares a Disney sinking 3% following a downgrade by Barclays. The farm setting a slowdown to subscriber growth for Disney+, and it's not just Disney under pressure. Credit Suisse is starting to get concerned about the entire streaming landscape analyst putting out a new note today, saying Q three is expected to be the slowest quarter for new subscriber growth for streamers in their coverage universe since the pandemic began. All this comes as we gear up for Netflix earnings after the bell tomorrow shares up ahead of that report. So is there trouble brewing in the streaming world? Let's bring in rich Greenfield the cofounder and partner of light shed partners, rich great to have you with us. Thanks for having me, Melissa. I don't want to ask you about a competitor's research report, but the point being made here is a broad one, and that is that there's not enough content to fuel the growth that we've seen for Disney+. Would you agree with that that the cadence of content is too slow to power the growth to which the multiple must where the multiple makes sense? Look, we put out a piece earlier today that basically spoke to just that that essentially, Disney's losing time spent. So they've grown subscribers. They've done an incredible job. I mean, with the team at Disney has done over the last couple of years, it's been almost two years since the launch of Disney+ is incredible. And I think consumers have an absolute love of the Disney brand. They love marvel. They love Star Wars. There's been just a voracious appetite to sign up. But signing up is different than using. And I think the reality is there isn't enough new high profile content on Disney+. They've really tapped into sort of the meat of their market. They've really captured their market very, very quickly. Far faster than anyone expected. The question is now, how do you keep growing? You know, obviously Hulu's had some good growth too. But the question is, Disney, unlike other services, certainly unlike Netflix, doesn't have the diversity of content. Meaning they've got all the marvel fans now. They've got all the Star Wars fans. How do you keep growing? You know, you look at a show like only murderers in the building, which is on Hulu and is a great piece of content. Why is it not on Disney+? Trying to build a diversified service is really hard when you're very much sort of siloed into the content verticals that Disney is. And then on top of that Melissa I think sort of the decision that the management team made is they weren't going to use their new theatrical films anymore to drive the streaming service. They chose to go back to movie theaters. So unlike putting them directly onto Disney+, the way HBO is doing this year, Disney decided to go back to theaters starting with Shang-Chi back in September. And so the fourth quarter is actually very light content wise. And so it's not terribly surprising that Disney is seeing a slowdown, especially as competition is growing pretty significantly all around them. Richards Karen, thanks for being on. When you look at the landscape of streaming, is there any, is there any landscape left to grab in this land grab? And who out there like a Paramount plus, you know, do they have a chance or peacock? Or some of the smaller? Well, look, I'd say it's still very early days. I remember, you still have Karen. You have 75 million people. Paying for linear television bundles, whether that's through Comcast or charter or DirecTV. They're still 75 million homes that are paying for that. Usage is obviously outside of sort of the NFL has come down pretty dramatically. And so as you think about sort of wallet share, shifting away from linear legacy cable bundles to all these streaming services, there's a tremendous amount of runway, not to mention, look at what's happening over season in terms of the global opportunity. Yes, it's being built out quickly in Europe and Latin America, but Asia still very, very early days. Markets like India just very much beginning. And so I think there's a huge runway. I mean, Netflix is the biggest of all of them with a little over 200 million subscribers, but I don't think there's any reason why Netflix can't be triple the size of where they are over time. In terms of the other upstarts, it really comes down to focus. You know, we just were talking about Disney. Balancing their theatrical business. So their legacy theatrical business, with Disney+, they put Dancing with the Stars on ABC. They put only murderers on who. Choosing what content goes where is a problem that every single legacy media company has. So when you look at whether we're talking about Paramount plus or we're talking about discovery plus, we're talking about peacock. It's all about decisions. The management teams have the assets. The amount of content at their disposal, it's just a matter of whether they want to put all of their everything they have into streaming and go quote unquote all in, or whether they're trying to balance do some streaming, but keep their legacy businesses vibrant. And so that push and pull is very, very hard. And like Netflix doesn't think about that. Amazon doesn't think about that. Apple doesn't think about that at all. Rach, thank you. Good to see you. Rich Greenfield. Light shed. Tam? Never thought about the problem that way, but it is a difficult thing to balance. Where do you put which content? Well, I agree with that. I think we've also though priced in the decline of legacy TV and all of the networks under ABC and ESPN and whatnot. So great point by rich as always. And I think if you look at Netflix, what they don't think about is profitability. I mean, there's a company that's really never has always been a cash burn story hasn't really ever been profitable. And so far, it's been working. I just simply say, look at, look at Disney versus Netflix as a pear trade, and it's been a remarkably good trade just in terms of all over the last two years. Disney outperformed by 60% than Netflix by 50% in the next 6 months. Go back, go back two and a half years. Netflix has now outperformed Disney by about 25% in the last three months. I think that probably continues a bit here. No one really cares about their profitability. And I think we priced in the COVID pull forward. Yeah, how are we set up guy just quickly going into earnings tomorrow for Netflix? I think for Netflix, probably not great to be honest with you. And that's tremendous run so that I think the clever thing to do would probably take money off the table. And that's coming from somebody that thinks Netflix is probably going to go significantly higher over the next few months. In terms of Disney, just, you know, the flip side of the Disney coin is I think it was September 23rd, JPMorgan of all people added it to their focus list with a $220 price target. So it just goes to show the two sides of every market. I think Disney actually in the mid one 60s if it gets there, it's going to get interesting again. Well, Kramer is taking the other side of today's Disney.

"Cash to buy direct, generally at a slight discount, the strategy being that homeowners would rather not go through the tedious task of putting the house on the market and then paying a broker commission. The I buyers rehab the home and sell it hopefully at a profit. Now, stocks of other I buyers like open door offer pad and Redfin. Not reacting that much to the news, the CEO of Redfin Glenn kelman told me they've had supply chain issues for years as well and it sometimes limits the number of the number or types of homes they can purchase, but that they are, quote, wide open for business, he said, and a spokesman for open door also is just they too are still open for business. Melissa. All right, Diana, thank you, Dianna olick. Karen just sounds like a Zillow issue. It does, although it sort of curious that the other ones aren't having the same issue. So I mean, I guess I'll take a bit of their word. There was that negative publicity a few weeks ago about them going in buying a bunch of houses in a neighborhood in certain marketing it up. I don't know if that has anything to do with it or really it is a supply issue. Supply chain issue. I remember when they pivoted and went into this business and I thought, wow, that is a big change from an asset light business to have an asset heavy business, but their timing was great. It's been a great business for them. I understand why the stock is down today. It should be assuming that what the problem is is what they say it is and that could be. I believe them with that, but it's a little curious that others don't have the same problem. Yeah. Guy, what are your thoughts on this? Well, Wall Street Journal heard on the street. I mean, they're pretty much said it's as ill specific thing. They said, just poor planning on their part. And the other thing I take away, go back to their earnings release in August, I think. I mean, the price targets I saw post earnings are anywhere between one 25 to one 95. You're going to have to see a lot of analysts, ratchet those price targets down, which means obviously they're behind the curve. But guess what I'm trying to say is the move to the downsides probably not over. I think you can round trip the entire move from last August when it was a $65 stock to where we are now. I think you could see that final ten bucks or so to the downside. Wow. All right, we're just getting started here on fast money. Here's what's coming up next. Our streamer slugfest.

I have one <Speech_Male> final question for you <Speech_Male> building building this business <Speech_Male> now for eighteen months <Speech_Male> through a pandemic <Speech_Male> <Speech_Male> built a decided marketplace <Speech_Male> essentially from <Speech_Male> scratch. <Speech_Male> What's been the <Speech_Male> hardest <Speech_Male> thing <Speech_Male> about doing <Silence> that for <SpeakerChange> you. Personally <Speech_Music_Male> <Speech_Music_Male> i mean <Speech_Music_Male> big fan of <Speech_Male> booed shopping <Speech_Male> big fan <Speech_Male> of really <Speech_Male> capitol efficient <Speech_Male> businesses. But it's <Speech_Male> it's hard. <Speech_Male> I mean i was working <Speech_Male> four. <Speech_Male> Am to <Speech_Male> eleven <Speech_Male> pm. ni- <Speech_Music_Male> family responsibilities <Speech_Male> included. <Speech_Male> I <Speech_Male> take out the trash <Speech_Male> and pick up dog <Speech_Male> poop every thursday. <Speech_Male> Do the dishes. Those <Speech_Male> are my chores around the house. <Speech_Male> So <Speech_Male> i was just <Speech_Male> i believe <Speech_Male> in this and so <Speech_Male> those are the hardest <Speech_Male> fire. Which is the sheer <Speech_Male> amount <Speech_Male> of work to get this <Speech_Male> off the ground. I think that's a <Speech_Male> lot of thing. <Speech_Male> That's a big thing that i <Speech_Male> think a lot of untruths to <Speech_Male> understand. It takes <Speech_Male> a lot <Speech_Male> of work <Speech_Male> to go to start a going <Speech_Male> <SpeakerChange> in.

And <Speech_Male> that's that's my <Speech_Male> goal. I literally <Speech_Male> before <Speech_Male> this podcast. <Speech_Male> I was talking to my team <Speech_Male> guys. <Speech_Male> I'm overwhelmed <Speech_Male> and i tweeted <Speech_Male> something out like.

"So i would say that was probably the main thing is just speaking with people who were already in the start biko system in were already actively either looking to sell have previously acquired companies or previously sold companies and i to him about all the current players in the market today. What what are they like about them. What do they not like about them. And i took all that in and built marketplace around that. I want you know listeners. To take away. Is i get emails conversations. Private emails have been public emails to the questions at stark's arrests of us line here about starting to set marketplaces and what most people don't realize is the sheer amount of hustle that it takes to get that kick started that it's not about. I'm gonna do some seo here. I'm going to launch on product tante and read it or hacker news or whatever and build that marketplace you have to have enough of both sides in place already that it makes sense to then launch on product which is what you did and the cold emailing the calling dozens if not hundreds of conversations is often what it takes to get a business that once. You built that. Flywheel as you said it. Sounds like it's started to spend product hunt. God it's spinning and then more and more people hear about and it becomes a virtuous cycle. But when you're starting out there is no. There's no cycle to there's no movement and so congratulations on your fundraising this completely coincidental. But you and. I've been trying to get you on the show for a while and finally our schedules made up. And last week. I see micro-car raise two point. Eight million dollars. Twenty two million dollar post money valuation so going big with this thing and i can tell by your vision and the way you've been talking about it so my question here is. How is this adventure. Scale business if you're not taking a percentage of the sale. Because i think you're at a twenty two million post so for investors to be happy you're selling for at least one hundred million..

"Confirmed light advice or just package services got a lot of work to do. I mean that's as short story so to date. You launched in january twenty twenty which is about eighteen months ago. What metrics are numbers. Can you share in terms of how many companies have sold through micro acquirer dollar amounts. Just whatever whatever it is you're sharing in public. Yeah over three hundred acquisitions. Over one hundred million dollars closed deal volume we have about seventy thousand registered buyers adding about three hundred plus daily. Were in the top four thousand in visited websites in the world so we surpass flipper. I believe don't quote me on. That might change in. I love to i mean. I think they're a great marketplace in. They serve millions of entrepreneurs so another fan like to add. Who is you know. We do have competitors in industry but really. We're just building another option for entrepreneurs this other business but yeah we see acquisitions. Almost every other day. I get emails day. Bought a company for honor k fifty k. A million dollars two million dollars. So it's been really rewarding. Just being able to help entrepreneurs in that way because when those acquisitions happened like that's how weddings get paid. That's like how down payments on houses get paid. that's how decades pay that's like the exit is such an important part of the founders journey and there's never been a modern marketplace for emanate and that's what we're looking at micro for he had. That's a trip that three hundred a lot in in eighteen months. I'm actually surprised that it's that high. How did you take a step back. When i first heard about micro choir and it was sometime last year. And i don't remember when it was but i remember thinking this isn't going to work okay. I'm the perpetual skeptic. Right this has already been done. Like flippers out there. There's all these other things that do this. How can he possibly get a two sided marketplace to work. You know in a space where there's already a lot of competition. So how did you kick start this like. How did you get enough businesses on the site to make any buyers want to sign up. And how did you get buyers to come. I mean you are to date said from the funding whereabout mentioned that that you raised in the past couple of weeks here but you had effectively bootstrap funded at yourself. As far as i know. So how did you possibly get both sides of that marketplace to get to critical mass. Yeah so the first thing..

"With that. Let's dive into my conversation. With andrew gazza decky and his experience building and growing micro acquire over the last eighteen months. Andrew gaz decade. Thanks for joining me. Thanks for having me on the show excited. Yeah i am too so folks heard in your intro that you basically mostly bootstrapped business. Apps to ten million a are raised only one hundred thousand dollars. Why did you decide to sell. It was it. Was it three years ago twenty eighteen. Yeah so again like facebook updates and like obviously announced. It's all my friends on facebook and family so it was three years ago in may. The reason is clear. I was tired. So the story behind ask started up. I started in college zero experience. I'm goal Previous jobs at sears. Got fired from a graphic design job. Before that and i had just ran the business for such a long period and candidly just got an offer. That was hard to refusing. Yeah when you raise capital even those one hundred thousand you still have a fiduciary duty tier investors and so. It was a win for my team win for my investors and a win for me personally and also the customers at business apps if you go to business com still up in so many gaps really like the firm. So short version is i. I was exhausted. Mike know they say you're in a startup. Is like a in like cat ears. So being i sold it when i was twenty nine and i wanted to move on something new wanted to do another startup but yeah i was. I was tired. And i felt i took the start up as far as i can take it in. I didn't have any plans to handed down to my children or anything. Like that so candidly. The business was built with getting acquired. Mind and when that opportunity came that happen. That's great and that kind of gives you the luxury. After having that first exit of start crazy ambitious not that business absolutely am bishops but crazy ambitious offerings like micro acquire. Which is you know. I think what what. I wanna d- into a lot today. When did you launch micro acquire and actually before we do that. Can you tell folks what it is in your words. Yeah so micr. Acquire is a marketplace to help founders. Get acquired so if you're a startup founder you can list your company on. Mike require completely free. There's no commissions there's no fees there's no security and we allow founders to connect directly with buyers and really the idea behind it was based on my situation with business apps where there were signs where i just wanted to potentially sell the company i was exhausted meeting buyers especially when you have a smaller business can be not as easy when you're when you get to you know..

"This week. I speak with andrew gaz decky. He's the founder of micro acquire. Talk a lot about bootstrapping. Two sided marketplace in a competitive industry and andrew talks about the future plans for micro acquire. I didn't know much about andrew before chatting with him today but it turns out that he grew a up app essentially bootstrap that he raised. Only one hundred thousand dollars and he grew it to ten million in annual recurring revenue. It's an app called business. Apps is e any s. apps dot com started building it in college sold it in two thousand eighteen and he described it to me as we or wicks for mobile apps and it's still operating and serving customers but pretty pressed with that as a background gives some credibility for someone to be able to build an app to that level and then exit. And we don't spend too much time talking about that part of the story. We focused on micro acquire which is a website that helps match buyers and sellers of smaller software and ecommerce startups. And you'll hear a little bit of that story of of him. Thinking of and then launching micro choir and then bootstrapping that two sided marketplace right getting both sides of the marketplace and thinking about you know what is the value that he's trying to offer different than all the other offerings already available on the markets to help smaller early stage mostly bootstrapped founders exit their businesses. But before we dive into our conversation. I wanted to let you know that applications for our next batch of tiny seed opened up on august ninth..

"And what is the thing between like what is the material i call it between the coin interdependence and independence. What's the material right if you have a penny that materials copper right in between right. What is what is the in between. Here's my philosophy. The in between the stuff of the coin is called grace. If two people are gonna come together and it's gonna workout. There's got to be grace between them. Grace when you're growing and they're not grace when they're growing and you're not grace win. They're struggling and you're doing great grace win you fall a little bit away from each other and without that it's really hard to keep that coin unified and valuable if you will and so. I know after teaching about relationships literally for fifteen years. And i've been blessed to coach some of the highest level couples in the business world and some of the highest level olympic couples. I've worked with couples in every possible scenario that you can imagine from new parents to people who've chosen not to have children to people who are just trying to finally create depth in meaningful this a new relationship. I can share you. Fifteen years of coaching. You have to imagine every conversation or every other conversation brings up a relationship that somebody is in and what i have seen over and over and over again when either teaching or coaching relationships is your or the listener. The students immediate impulse to judge the other person. So as i'm teaching today it's very easy. My husband he's like this my wife. She's like that. And your immediate like soon as i started teaching about something you immediately cast the other person as the wrong doer. And if we're going to explore relationships today know the material inbetween dependence independence is not wrongdoer. It's grace if you want the relationship to improve if you want the relationship to deepen if you want to feel better no bitterness here no judgment here. I also judged less. Feel better okay. Let's not judge our partners or spouses here. Let's educate learn. Let's explore how we think you can't control them. I want you instead say. Let me explore my relationships with openness grace let let me be accountable for my stuff think through my stuff and not make the succession of their bad and they're the wrongdoer.

"Professional military experience in consulting coaching and training in areas like team in interaction dynamics communication strategies and tactics as well as emotional intelligence. Take it away. Guy party this guy harris. Welcome to talk like a leader. This week's episode is titled two sides of the need to be heard and understood number years ago. Patrick lynch owner released a book called the five dysfunctions of team. I think of quota before even probably references line. He said that reasonable rational people don't have a need to get their way so much as i have a need to be heard and understood and that line fits perfectly with my experience in working with people find that most reasonable rational people which by the way is most people don't really want so much to get what they want as to. Have you understand what they want now. Clearly people want to get their way. That's kind of human nature. It's true for me. It's true for my wife is true for my kids. It's true for many of my co workers and most of us are mature enough that when we're in a collaborative interdependent working sort of relationship with another person. We realized that we're not always going to get exactly what we want. And we're going to have to find ways to work together even when we disagree on some things but we do really want. Most of us want is to be heard and understood so. Let's start with that premise. The the key ideas to be heard understood and then also reference a book called. i break all the rules. Which is about a twenty year old book or so right now where the study authors found that a big of leadership success was level of emotional control emotional intelligence knowing how to manage and control one's own emotions and i think these two things go together very well in terms of understanding it'd be a more effective leadership communicator. How to communicate more effectively in a leadership role now. The points about reasonable rational people don't having the to be heard and to get their way so much as to be heard understood is something i've talked about in previous episodes. The idea of meeting other people's needs understanding people's needs adjusting your communication to fit their needs trying to listen to their perspective to identify their needs. And all those sorts of things. I've talked about a number of times a number of different ways and that's not really the point of this episode. I'll point to that idea and say let's not forget that idea. The real point of this episode is to look at the other side of the need to be heard and understood. It's our need as leaders to be heard and understood and to realize that our need to be heard and understood can be driving us a great deal in our engagement other people so the challenge here is that your need to be heard and understood. I'll say my need to be heard and understood. Can cause some problems forest because it can interfere with our listening..

"How bad hate is what about abusers. What about what about narcissist. What about psychopaths sociopaths. What about these people who are always taking advantage of everyone all the time. How are they able to do it because people forgive. Forgive and forgive him forgive. Forgive forgive forgive. Forgive forgive but what people don't understand. Is that forgiveness. Acceptance is not what it means Very different you can forgive someone not accept their their actions. And you can say. Look if you do this again. that's it. i've seen it happen. You know my mom left left my dad you know because of something like that and you can get fed up with the person real quick. You know they don't straighten up fly right In that love. Can you know.

"It's very interesting to think about you know saw recently. Tony bennett has alzheimer's disease So he did his last album Any key can't do the interviews because You know that's the nature disease he can't. You can't remember anything your cognitive ability. So is this a levels person now that they have alzheimer's disease they love or you know do can they hate anything. You know all these all these emotions you had all these years and then boom. They're just gone I don't know We put a lot of stock into emotion and into How that is somehow. I don't know a part of our identity and you know i mean. I don't know that that's correct. I don't know that you can say emotions are identity you know so like love for example. I don't think love is fleeting. Don't think it stagnant. I think it's sporadic. I think it has peaks and valleys dips in ways. That doesn't necessarily mean you love someone less than more. It just means that you know you feel a certain thing more one day than you feel in another day and that's how that goes and people get obsessed with happiness you know i don't i don't think they necessarily really looking for love. I think happiness and love to different things You can find happiness and love. And i can not But you have to decide which one's more important sometimes and again like i don't think any of this is very popular to talk about is not very storybook. It's too complicated. It's too all over the place you know there's no knight in shining armor coming in this no bad guy to blame that that's the thing with love and hate is that you can Start off really caring for someone or something and you know if they slight you or they Neglect you or they abuse you you can. You could really grow to hate. The person low. This is known sir and christopher content and more content. talk. I am telling you anchor.
