Well, the nauseating, feckless milksops known as equity bulls are getting burned, and God knows no one deserves it more. What’s particularly galling is that the narcissistic Cathie Wood declared stocks in “deep value territory” this weekend, even though the S&P 500 was at the most overpriced level in human history on goddamned Thursday. So, yeah, Cathie, I think those neck cream vapors are beginning to affect your already spurious thinking.
