Thats exactly what I say: “It is a product of our beliefs married to our hope that it’s value will remain.” that is literally cognisant of the speculative nature of a stocks value. It is based on speculation and sentiment.
Happy to debate this, but I feel like it’s needlessly ciritcal of specific idiosyncrasies. The stock market is where you buy shares, hence the reference of both.
I really don’t understand where a needless adversarily criticality emerges from or why it’s a neccesary component of any discussion online. Each word written isn’t a challenge to your ego, it is an invitation to share knowledge.
The world is a far better place when we ask question and share rather than assert our beliefs as fact. Medium used to be a space where one could explore concepts which fascinate us, but slowly it deteriorates like any great forum.
