In this valuable video, George Soros shares his lifetime learnings on Financial Markets. Some of the key messages are:
1. In business cycles, Earnings (EPS) rise will lead Valuation(P/E) rise, and Earnings (EPS) fall will lead Valuation(P/E) fall because investors tend to extrapolate the present into the future.
2. Whatever is known to the majority, can not create profits (competitive advantage).
3. Markets discount all the known things. The profits are in the unknown (events of the future), which are not yet discounted by the market.
While this video is 5 years old, the content is still very relevant, and some of the implications and projections by George Soros have actually come true in last 5 years. The key point to note is that George Soros does not accept/agree with the Efficient Market Theory. While we can’t predict the future, it is possible to create scenarios and test them against the events as they unfold.
