Why focused on just these same companies?
Google, Amazon, Apple...pretty easy for them to make anyone look like a genius in hindsight.

What about CSCO since 2000?
INTC is 45% over 13-14 years? Not a very good CAGR.

Maybe this is just a thing you have with the lifeforce poster. If so, ok.

I find parallels to GG from early 2000 to today's Saul board from about Nov 2021.
Will it bounce back quickly or will it be a multi-year drag down in market? Who knows.

I find Saul board stocks can be GG stocks, but not always exactly.
Both focused on hyper-growth/tech.
GG tends to be more long-term.
Saul stocks tend to be "invest only while growth at x level and exit once growth slows". Feels/sounds a bit like Tornado or S-curve or whatever term someone wants to use.

GG seems to focus more on dominance in a market/category vs purely focused on growth over x rate.

Timing does matter, imo.
If you came into investing in 2001/2002 you did better, more quickly, than someone piling into the market initially at early 2000.

Same with 2007/8 vs mid-2009.

I find another parallel with the always-up-bro / crypto / Gamestop / Tesla / ARKK crowd of 2000, that jumped in after March 2000 and only ever saw that btd works each and every time.

Monetary policy different each period as well; 2000 vs 2008 vs Dec 2018 vs today.

Either way, feels like more capitulation still to come, and that time would present a great buying oppty for Gorillas or Saul stocks, etc...
