Notes from Underground - Nothing to worry about Nothing to worry about.

By Darren Atwater | Sunday 7 July 2019

Disclosure: I have no positions in any stocks mentioned, and no plans to initiate any positions within the next 72 hours. I wrote this article myself, and it expresses my own opinions. I am not receiving compensation for it (other than from ShareProphets). I have no business relationship with any company whose stock is mentioned in this article.

I'm writing this column from beautiful British Columbia, on Canada's West Coast. You have, of course, heard about the earthquakes in California. You probably didn't hear about the earthquakes, which happened around the same time, in northern British Columbia. That puts yours truly right between the two.

Growing up here, we were told that The Big One, a devastating earthquake, will occur every hundred years or so. The last one we had, according to Japanese tsunami records and indigenous oral history, was in 1700. We're a little behind schedule.

If you are looking for a reason to short Microsoft, Amazon, or Canadian cannabis stocks, read this article: The Really Big One: an earthquake will destroy a sizable portion of the coastal Northwest. The question is when. It hasn't helped me sleep the past few nights.
