Savvy investors can win on their trades whether the market goes up or down, and no one knows this better than Michael Burry. Burry, whose successes in profiting from the financial crisis of 2008 were featured in the book and film The Big Short, has turned his eye to historical analogies, and is hinting at reasons for optimism in today’s environment following last week’s collapse of Silicon Valley Bank.
Referring back to the October bank panic of 1907, Burry notes certain similarities with today’s crisis. The 1907 panic was triggered by the collapse of a major regional bank, Knickerbocker, in New York, which expanded to hit two other regional institutions and then threatened to spread to the banking majors. But, Burry points out, the 1907 panic burned itself out quickly. The market hit bottom in just three weeks.
Describing the incident, Burry wrote, “In October 1907, Knickerbocker Trust failed due to risky bets, sparking a panic. Two others soon failed, and it spread. When a run began on a healthy Trust, JPMorgan made a stand. 3 weeks later the Panic resolved & markets bottomed. A stand was made this past weekend.”
