Shervin Pishevar’s Tweetstorm May Be More Fact Than Fiction

Shervin Pishevar, the hedge fund manager and angel investor, took a break from investing at the end of 2017. He resigned as chairman of Investment company, the hedge fund he founded. Pishevar needed time to gather his thoughts and reflect on his successful investment career. He had a hand in several startups that turned into big moneymakers. Uber, Warby Parker, Airbnb, and Postmates along with other Silicon Valley startups gave Shervin Pishevar the financial clout he needed to be one of the big names in the investment industry.

When Shervin surfaced last March, he went on a 21-hour Twitter rant that changed people’s opinion about his sanity. Pishevar stepped all over the stock and bond markets in his more than 50 tweets. And he didn’t have nice things to say about Silicon Valley.

The investors who follow Shervin Pishevar on Twitter thought the investment superstar was angry. They thought his warning about a stock market collapse sounded more light sour grapes than fact. Mr. Pishevar didn’t mince words in those tweets. He wanted investors to know the global economy was on shaky ground. He also wanted them to know they were going to feel the investment backlash when overvalued assets crumble.

Most investors didn’t pay attention to Shervin Pishevar’s tweetstorm. He was just another scorn entrepreneur who wanted attention. But now that the stock market is in a tailspin, investors are rereading Shervin Pishevar’s tweets. They see the challenges that Pishevar saw before they did. But trying to find a safe haven in this economic atmosphere is a major challenge.

Pishevar told investors that all asset classes were in for an adjustment. Bull market investing won’t be around in 2019, according to Shervin. The global economy gets weaken by the day. And thanks to Trump’s trade war with China, investors and consumers can expect to pay more for everything in 2019. But even though Pishevar’s tweets are a borderline reality now, some investors don’t want to listen. But that’s the nature of the investment game. Some investors have to feel the pain before they believe investment pain is real.
