In the 80s and 90s my dad tried to get me interested in the stock market. It seemed much more intuitive and consistent then. As the internet matured online trading and social media started to warp stock valuations. Now some jackhole on twitter can make a one line comment and everything goes wibbly wobbly.
It's the whole EV market. RIVN went down after the recall, that people have posted takes 10 min. Time to buy! Really though, I never invest what I can't lose. I put a few hundred into Apple in '92 right before they were about to go out of business.
