    Default About tech stocks...

    I fail to see how they can be at their highest ever when none of those companies are even bringing any products to market.

    How can the stock be soaring when they have no product to market at all?

    There is NO inventory. Zero! No products whatsoever!

    I think China might be trying to take over Taiwan may be the reason.

    I just can't wrap my head around how companies with nothing to sell can have their stock keep rising.

    I tell you this: It's unsustainable.

    Government is throwing taxpayer money at them in an attempt to compete with China.

    I think 'Growth' Stocks are viewed as 'Investments in the Future'. So, whether or not they are making money NOW ... isn't really important, at least to the Investor.

    I hope that is true. I'd hate to see China ruling over the world in Technology.

    The US has been throwing taxpayer money at tech for 80 years, yet China is still kicking our ass. I recommend everyone start a vegetable garden this year before things get ugly.

    They'd have to grow an awful lot to make good on those prices. I think it's a bubble.

    Especially if China takes over Taiwan.

    Well, China has 'State support' for their 'Champion Industries' while the US only has 'State support' for their 'Military Industries'.
    So, it's about time the US get it's head around 'Technology'.

    Hint: It wasn't a Nuclear Submarine that shut down Colonial Pipeline.

    The US military buys our taxpayer subsidized tech then government adds it to our GDP, so let's at least stop pretending we're capitalist.

    Our 'Military' is 'State supported'. We need to understand that 'Technology' is part of our 'Defense'.

    When military socialism buys from tech socialists, we shouldn't add this taxpayer funded socialism to the GDP, and we should at least be willing to admit that the US is a corporate socialist economy funded by debt that is already in default.

    Like China and the rest of the world, we are all global capitalists.
    China knows what their 'Critical Industries' are, like the Technology Sector.
    The US needs to understand we are in a 'War for the Future'.

    Here, this might help you understand:
    "National champions
    National champions are corporations which are technically private businesses but due to governmental policy are ceded a dominant position in a national economy. In this system, these large organizations are expected not only to seek profit but also to "advance the interests of the nation"; the government sets policies which favor these organizations.Wikipedia"

    'advance the interests of the nation' ... you can call it 'socialism' all you want, I call it 'America First'.

    America First is in default. There is no way we can or will pay all our corporate socialist debt. The $800 billion military budget goes directly to defense contractors and does not include the overall cost of the military. That means the true military budget is close to $2 trillion, not counting the $22 trillion the pentagon lost (stole) over the past 2 decades. The entire US economy runs on debt, we need to accept that fact.

    Well, if it is a software product, a product can be sold without inventory. Obviously, software services also do not need inventory. With cloud computing, these companies do not even need normal infrastructure.

    Hardware companies usually have inventory. For instance, Apple has inventory, though they try to keep it to a minimum.

    Matt's more recent posts are making less sense. He seems confused.
