Michael Burry: no ‘true danger’ of contagion from SVB

Investor Michael Burry believes the spreading disaster following the collapse of Silicon Valley Financial institution may resolve “in a short time.”

“I’m not seeing any true hazard right here,” Burry, who predicted the 2008 housing crash and was performed by Christian Bale in The Huge Quick movie, mentioned in a tweet Monday evening that he has since deleted. 

Silicon Valley Financial institution, a California lender, was seized by federal regulators final week after its buyer base of tech startups started withdrawing deposits en masse. The regulator created a bridge financial institution to carry SVB’s deposits and President Joe Biden mentioned Monday that they might be protected.

Burry’s feedback come lower than a day after he tweeted that “hubris and greed” are widespread themes and that individuals “take silly dangers, and fail.” Then, policymakers “print cash” to repair the scenario, he mentioned.

The Scion Asset Administration founder is understood for his cautionary tweets on the markets and the financial system. Burry not too long ago warned that inflation will spike once more and instructed merchants to “promote” forward of February’s Federal Reserve assembly.
