‘My 19 year-old niece is asking me what stocks’ she should buy
by Mark DeCambre
Outspoken billionaire and Dallas Mavericks owner Mark Cuban says that the stock market’s recent technology-driven run-up from coronavirus lows has many of the hallmarks of the bubble that rocked markets in the late 1990s and early 2000s. One big difference: This time the Federal Reserve is amplifying liquidity in the pandemic-battered economy, which has helped to support risk appetite on Wall Street, emboldening newly minted individual investors to make risky bets on highflying stocks.
During a Monday morning interview with CNBC, the entrepreneur, who boasts a net worth of $4.2 billion, according to Forbes, said that he has to remind himself that it can take a long time for periods that are considered bubblicious to ultimately burst.
“I have to keep reminding myself that the internet bubble lasted for years.…and so it’s difficult to have patience and recognize that there’s still a lot of money” that can be made, the “Shark Tank” star said.
