– Irrational Exuberance and the GameStop Short Squeeze
Dr. Alan Greenspan, Senior Economic Advisor – The meteoric rise in the stock price of GameStop seems to have brought up the question of irrational exuberance in the markets. Irrational exuberance is a state of investor psychology, when the pendulum between fear and euphoria has swung too far towards the latter. In other words, stock prices are the aggregation of the myriad expectations held by market participants and can at times reflect what seems an unjustifiably optimistic view of future economic conditions.
Though prices may appear excessive during periods of irrational exuberance (i.e., priced for perfection) they are nonetheless rooted in some concrete view of an uncertain future that can be articulated in terms of expectations of future cash flows, interest rates, etc.
