A Week on the Market: Dollar Fears Not, Pound at Its Minimums
Top News of the Week: Federal Reserve, Bitcoin and Some Statistics
In 2015 one could buy Nvidia (NASDAQ: NVDA) stocks for just 20 USD each; however, an unexpected growth of interest toward cryptocurrencies has changed the investors’ view of this company accordingly. The more the cryptocurrency market grew, the more people wanted to mine: individuals with 1 to 10 graphic cards as well as major investors, owning mining farms with thousands of graphic cards. All this led to increased demand for GPU, and the income of Nvidia has started growing, too. The management realized that the boost was temporary; nonetheless, they tried to get the most from the existing demand. As a result, there appeared a whole department engaged in development of GPU chips for mining.

In the end of May I called Alibaba (NYSE:BABA) stocks the best investment on the declining market; however, today I am talking about the probability that their price falls for 90%. I have not changed my mind about the company and insist on their stocks being one of the best possible assets for investment, which seems even more so after the recent events on the market. But first of all I would like to speak about certain actions of companies on the exchange market which cause significant rises as well as falls of stock prices. In other words, we are going to talk about the stock split.
Tesla (NASDAQ: TSLA) has been downtrending since December, having lost around 48% so far. In early May, in another Tesla stocks review, we mentioned the short position percentage had been around 25%. Now, it's already 28.12%, and every single day, the negative sentiment increases. When the stock was above $300, there was not so much of negative forecast; currently, both the leading banks and analysts are downgrading Tesla's rating. Some even say the company may get restructured, and call Elon Musk a scammer, probably just to make their short positions more effective.
In an article posted in April, we expected the S&P500 to reach a record high and then correct, with the investors seeing no reasons for the index to go further up.
