Beyond Evergrande: Can China Shoulder Its Massive Debt Burden?
Michael Pettis, senior fellow at the Carnegie-Tsinghua Center for Global Policy, has been worried for many years about China’s growing debt burden. But now that firm after firm in the country is facing a bankruptcy crisis requiring bailouts, China is truly at a crossroads: the country’s level of non-productive investment must come down—the only question is where. Will it come from a rising trade surplus or increased consumption by China’s cash-strapped citizenry? Or will the Chinese Communist Party be forced to accept lower—much lower—levels of economic growth for China? Pettis discusses alongside macro investor Michael Nicoletos, who asks about serious investment implications on commodities, foreign capital flows, the Chinese yuan, and global risk assets.

Beyond Mere Valuation: Finding True Alpha in Underappreciated Megatrends
Ophir Gottlieb, CEO of Capital Market Laboratories, has a different framework than the traditional stock-picker. Rather than searching for underappreciated companies in established industries, Gottlieb finds technological megatrends that themselves are underappreciated and overlooked by institutional investors such as cloud computing, streaming, e-commerce, and Web 3.0. Gottlieb gives a deep-dive on cloud computing stocks Digital Ocean ($DOCN), a central cloud platform powered by community, and Nutanix Inc ($NTNX), a pure-play in hyper-converged infrastructure (HCI). Gottlieb discusses why he remains very bullish on streaming company Roku ($ROKU) even after its more than 1,100% rise. He argues that institutional investors can fall into “cognition traps” by ignoring secular tech trends, which gives tremendous opportunities to retail investors. Gottlieb also discusses how he puts on positions by buying stocks as well as options. Other companies discussed include PagerDuty Inc ($PD), Shopify Inc ($SHOP), NVIDIA Corporation ($NVDA), Applied Materials ($AMAT), and Jumia Technologies ($JMIA). Interviewed by Real Vision’s Jack Farley on October 6, 2021.
