It’s ‘very dangerous’ to invest in stocks and bitcoin right now
It’s ‘very dangerous’ to invest in stocks and bitcoin right now, long-time bear David Tice warns

The investor who sold his bear fund as the 2008 financial crisis was unfolding is delivering a grim long-term prognosis to Wall Street.

From the S&P 500 to Big Tech to bitcoin, David Tice warns it’s a “very dangerous period” for investors right now.

“The market is very overpriced in terms of future earnings. We are adding debt like we’ve never seen,” the former Prudent Bear Fund manager told “Trading Nation” on Friday. “We have the Treasury market acting very strange with rates falling dramatically.”

Tice, who’s known for making bearish bets during bull markets, now advises the AdvisorShares Ranger Equity Bear ETF, which has $70 million in assets under management. The fund is up 3% over the past month, but it’s off 62% over the last two years.

He acknowledges it’s tough to time the next major pullback, and he’s often early. However, Tice is convinced a market meltdown is unavoidable.

“We’re not out of the woods yet, and this is a dangerous market,” Tice reiterated.

He’s encouraging investors to weigh the risks: Try to earn 3% to 5% near-term gains while contending with the threat of a 40% pullback? Tice thinks it’s a bet not worth taking.

Tice is particularly worried about Big Tech and the FAANG stocks, which include Facebook, Apple, Amazon, Netflix and Alphabet, formerly known as Google.

“A lot of money has been thrown at Alphabet and Microsoft, Apple and Facebook, Twitter, etc.,” noted Tice. “Costs are going up in that sector.”
