You know you are bad at social media when you put out a tweet supporting a very worthy cause, yet nearly every commenter bashes you.
So how did Jason find himself knee-deep in criticism for trying to support breast cancer research?
Nikola executives are notorious for releasing artist renderings of trucks that don’t exist. Chairman Trevor Milton seems to spend an inordinate amount of time on Twitter pumping the advantages of his fictional truck.
The other factor here is the virtue signaling. Do we really need to be “aware” of breast cancer? I think pretty much everyone knows how horrible of a disease it is.
Many also found humor in picturing the average truck driver in a hot pink truck.
In conclusion, it’s hard to believe that this $10 billion corporation can’t get their act together on social media. Their executives constantly embarrass themselves, including when Milton said he’d like to stay out of jail (the tweet has since been deleted).
YouTube trading gurus were all over Kodak stock this week – after it already peaked, of course.
The YouTube trading gurus, at least the ones trying to sell a course or a stock alert service, try to create a perception of impeccable market timing.
However, as we’ll see with Kodak, they know the same (or less) as the rest of us.
See the thumbnail below. This is the same approach many of them use; display a huge percent return number to draw in viewers who want to become day traders. Of course, this guru didn’t buy Kodak before the huge spike. He just wants you to start thinking about 2,700% returns before you hear his pitch.
Notice how all these videos were posted on Wednesday or Thursday- after the spike happened.
Now, there’s nothing wrong with covering the financial news, which includes Kodak stock. The problem is stock market gurus who insinuate that they saw a huge move coming, or otherwise try to associate their stock picking techniques with a 2,700% return.
In my opinion, spending money on a stock market guru’s course is a bad idea. Take the time to learn the mechanics of the market yourself. Read Investopedia, market news, and watch stocks. There is no magic formula that these gurus can teach you.
And remember, if their stock tips were so great, they would just make all the money themselves instead of bothering with running a stock alert service.
