Dr. Marc Faber commenting about the LinkedIn IPO : "I think it's another bubble you understand concept stocks , yes it is a business but it is a business you can enter in relatively easily so I thing there will be a lot of competition ... I always had an account at Facebook and so forth but I think eventually people got tired of it (of Facebook) i do not think it will go bust bust , but every technology company in the imagination phase is doing well and after when they have to deliver earnings then the PEs go down and so forth I am not saying that they all go bust but I think they are all fully valued and I personally would not buy them but I would not have bought a lot of the tech stocks that went up so I man i am the model example for picking tech stocks well...- in Bloomberg TV
Marc Faber : ...well I do not like treasuries for the long run but I think they could rally somewhat for the next three months you know they are not going to collapse for the next three months , and the dollar will probably strengthen against the Euro for the next three months that will be my impression , so if you have large exposure to foreign currencies I would rather now move back to US dollars , I think there is an asset class in the US that is inexpensive but it won't go up but it is inexpensive is real estate , yes very inexpensive compared to the rest of the world ...in investment you have to be patient , the impatient people they always buy things that are moving right at the end of their trend like the NASDAQ in year 2000 like commodities in year 2008 at the peak and so forth and so on ...you better buy things that are depressed even if you have to wait five years but they offer some value" ...in Bloomberg TV
Marc Faber : Well the positive aspect of my negative view is essentially that you shouldn’t own cash and government bonds but you should be in assets like real estate or equities or precious metals or in commodities.That is the positive view. In other words, the more negative you are about the world and the geopolitical trends which will lead to war, the more likely it is that you will do better in equities than say in bonds and cash. - in www.businessinsider.com
