Shervin Pishevar, an investor of tech companies and co-founder of An investing firm, isn’t always the most active person on Twitter. However, that changed in February. He suddenly decided that he wanted to share some thoughts.
Shervin Pishevar shocked Twitter followers with 50 tweets, all sent out over 24 hours. Some were sent within three or four minutes of each other. The investor gave everyone some warning, though. He identified that he wanted to share thoughts on “financial storms” he saw brewing.
To help everyone keep track of the tweets, he numbered them. He then pinned the first one to the top of his profile to ensure everyone had a chance to see his biggest prediction.
Shervin Pishevar didn’t hesitate when it came to speaking up about his thoughts. The first tweet stated that he expected a 6000 point aggregate drop in the coming months. The second tweet backed it up by saying 2018 gains have already been lost.
The tweets weren’t limited to the stock market. Shervin Pishevar talked about how the US is lacking in the speed of execution. He then gave the example of China completing a train station in only nine hours. He blames the US government and their “decrypt and decaying” infrastructure.
Shervin Pishevar also talked about the US monopolies and how they hold too much power. The monopolies should come as no surprise: Facebook, Amazon, Alphabet, Microsoft, and Apple.
There was no specific reason as to why Shervin Pishevar decided to tweet all of his thoughts. However, many business blogs are now actively talking about his various theories and predictions. Some have even started to come true, particularly with US stocks taking a plunge. Plenty of people are taking Shervin’s tweets as warnings and moving to protect themselves against further losses in 2018.
