As the AG of California, Kamala Harris blocked evidence that would exonerate inmates on death row, and kept men in prison at $2/day to make license plates and fight fires.

This mosaic is made from some of the lives she destroyed.

So TSLA fanboys tell you ARK only sells TSLA to keep weighting under 10%, right? WRONG. ARKK is an ACTIVELY managed fund, unlike their weighted funds like PRNT.

ARKK has been steadily disposing of TSLA in recent weeks.

So, we've got a possible future South American equivalent of the CME, a possible Amazon for farms and farm equipment, and a commercial real estate business, on their own, are trading for half of CRESY current market cap, and could have intrinsic value of billions.

The core land that CRESY possesses is worth perhaps billions as well if we believe their valuation assessments. An extremely conservative $750/hectare for the whole portfolio yields 400M.

Then we have the 50% stake in fyo and the 22.5 stake in Agrofy. This started as an ag tech startup in 2000 and evolved into one of the most important brick and mortar ag exchanges in Latin America. They do futures, options, and brokering.

Agrofy recently raised 23M in a series B from SP Ventures. This was the largest Latin American agtech deal ever done. Agrofy has 2.6M in revenue, which has increased 50% YoY.

I think we can say with confidence these two stakes are worth at least 50M.

The real estate segment is currently trading at just 161M USD. Just two years the capitalization was over a billion dollars. Given that most of these properties are all located in Argentina, this valuation is probably mostly due to the fact that the company has been an absolute basket case. While Fitch views the bonds at distressed levels, IRSA has nonetheless reduced its exposure and leverage is incredibly low. 0 chance of bankruptcy.

The farming segment itself is currently profitable, and with the current outlook for cattle, corn, soy, and sugarcane, earnings should continue to improve. Despite more than doubling since the March lows, CRESY is seriously lagging its fundamentals. The earnings for this company are set to explode as they realize skyrocketing agricultural prices.

Poloniex lending market is definitely pricing in significant risk associated with Tether 26% lending rate vs 11% with USDC

This article is a great exploration of the evidence and data around raising the minimum wage to $15/hr.

TLDR: It's going to lead to more unemployment, slower growth, and higher costs for both businesses and consumers. This is what the data says.

Keeping an eye on ATKR. Not as cheap as it was a few months ago (it's doubled), but this is a goooooooddddd fucking business. Will benefit greatly from electrification /infrastructure trend and not that expensive on earnings basis (10-15X TTM earnings) with average 15% annual CAGR

More gains for nickel and cobalt...upped my stakes in Sherritt and Nickel 28
