“Much as we would like to think that Bill/Melinda’s split is somehow due to his enormous crimes against humanity (in which she’s been avidly complicit) and/or his sex life (I don’t want to think about it), this clear-eyed speculation makes more sense. Is it just “coincidence” that both Bill Gates and Jeff Bezos decide to get divorced within the same year, just before the crash of the economy? Probably not. Scroll down below the ZeroHedge piece to see the piece about the two divorces.” MCM
Everything Is Crashing: Stocks, Bonds, Crypto, Commodities All Tumble
BY TYLER DURDEN WEDNESDAY, MAY 19, 2021 – 07:49 AM
Everything is tumbling!
Global stocks and US index futures fell for the third straight session, led by the Nasdaq 100, bonds and commodities dropped and crypto crashed ahead of today’s release of the April Fed minutes after the ECB warned the euro-area faces elevated risks to financial stability as it emerges from the pandemic with high debt burdens and “remarkable exuberance” coupled with resurgent worries over inflation and coronavirus flareups.
The yield on 10-year Treasury notes touched a one-week high of 1.67%, driving down shares of Apple, Microsoft and Facebook by about 1% premarket. Dow e-minis were down 252 points, or 0.65%, S&P 500 e-minis were down 42.25 points, or 1.0%, and Nasdaq 100 e-minis were down 170.75 points, or 1.24%.
What do Jeff Bezos and Bill Gates divorces have in common?
Liquidation of stock options. Both are rich on paper…but
what does that mean exactly? Their wealth is tied directly
into their companies stock prices. If the stock crashes, so
does their wealth.
Now, ask yourself this. How do you cash in massive amounts
of your companies stocks without needing to notify shareholders?
Answer? Get divorced.
Two of the richest people in the world, Gates and Bezos, just happen
to be getting divorced in the same 365 days – moments before an
economic collapse is scheduled to happen. Coincidence?
If you’re not reading between the lines that they are liquidating stock
to save their asses, you’re not clued in. Something big is on the horizon.
