Podcast: New Year Edition 2021 – well that was fun, wasn’t it?

In today’s Exponential Investor

  • What do you remember from 2021?
  • Meme stocks, Elon, fuel!
  • The most heartwarming story of 2021

It’s New Year’s Eve… so why are you listening to us? Go on, scoot off and party – or relax and have fun?

Oh, you enjoy the Exponential Investor Podcast? Fantastic! Well! It is best that we crack on, because we’ve got nowhere near enough time to look back properly at 2021 – which was another weird year.

If 2020 had been bizarre, so too was 2021. The unvanquished and frequently mutating Covid-19 virus continued to dominate headlines and – at times – financial markets as well.

But there were also other sources of weirdness.

Remember GameStop and AMC and the WallStreetBets short-squeeze phenomenon?

Meme stocks were all the rage early in 2021, as major market indices soared to new heights.

Of course, the second half of the year would prove to be very different – not least because it had become clear that the ascent of the aforementioned indices had been driven by a rather small group of very large, and technology-related, stocks.

Meanwhile, for people in the crypto world, 2021 was a year of two halves as well. Or, maybe, it was a year of two humps?

Either way, there are some important takeaways – takeaways that are very worthy of discussion – from the meme stock trading phenomenon, and the rise of the crypto markets into a multi-trillion-dollar asset class, to the words and deeds of Tesla CEO (and Time magazine’s Person of the Year) Elon Musk.

We dive into those takeaways in our 2021 Year in Review edition of the Exponential Investor Podcast. And we also look at the most heartwarming story of 2021 that you didn’t know you needed to know about…

We will be back in 2022 with more in Exponential Investor and the Exponential Investor Podcast.

Have a safe, fun and festive New Year. We look forward to a successful and prosperous 2022!
