Hey everyone, I’m Dr. Parik Patel, BA, CFA, ACCA, Esq.
For those of you who don’t know me, I’m a Chartered Fin-meme Analyst (CFA) and Twitter’s most qualified fintwit account.
Anyways, I’ve been told that I have a particular insight into the world of finance, memes and everything in between.
So the team at The Hustle asked me to share my five favorite tweets for the week and provide some expert analysis on the topic.
So, without further ado, let’s get started:
Investor creates a fake Twitter profile pretending to be his brother. Gets roasted.
You might have heard about the Rockerfellers and the Rothschilds, but have you heard about the Saxenas? This power family took twitter by storm after it emerged that former money manager Puru Saxena had a parody account called Pedro pretending to be his brother.
After calling on his followers to report the account, they did precisely the opposite and formed a dozen new members of his family. Moral of the story? Embrace the meme and don’t take yourself too seriously on twitter.
Bitcoin had a huge sell-off recently. But this rainbow chart makes it all OK.
Life hasn’t been good for Bitcoiners. Probably because of Elon. From buying $1.5 billion of Bitcoin and accepting the cryptocurrency for car payments to halting payments and criticizing the bitcoin community on Twitter, it seems like Elon’s investment strategy is more unstable than my own.
However, if you simply zoom out and look at Bitcoin on a rainbow price chart, you’ll see that this is just a healthy correction. Few understand this.
We all know “stock tip” guy.
If you’re anything like me, then you often have to resist the urge to butt into the conversation whenever you overhear someone talking about stocks.
My friends are sick of me because all I do is give them bad stock tips that constantly lose them money. From now on, I will shift my focus on giving stock tips to strangers so that they can lose money too.
People are arguing about which sh*tcoin is the worst
You know it’s the top when two grown men on the internet are arguing about which meme coin is a scam and which one isn’t. Doge, Safemoon, Cumrocket… What does it all mean? Tell me the difference between sh*tcoin and scam and I’ll have my wife’s brother arrested.
The Creator Economy is coming for all of us
To finish this off on a slightly more insightful note, apps like Twitter and TikTok are providing the instant reach that you need to build your own platform and monetize what you love. Enjoy cooking? Start a recipe page on TikTok and set up an email newsletter.
Like investing and comedy? Set up a twitter page and give yourself a bunch of qualifications you don’t have. There’s never been a better time to become a creator.
