About David Tice

Tice founded the Prudent Bear Fund (BEARX) and served as portfolio manager from 1996-2008. For the ten years ended 12/08 when Tice sold the fund, BEARX increased in value at a 8.0% annualized rate, while the S&P 500 lost 1.4% annually. Tice utilized short sales of overvalued common stocks and stock indices, as well as being long mining companies to achieve a negatively-correlated investment return profile. Mr. Tice began his investment career in 1988 by publishing Behind the Numbers, an investment research service that focused on “Quality of Earnings Warnings and sell recommendations” for more than 150 money managers who collectively managed more than $2 trillion.

His work gained national recognition through several Barron's articles he wrote, and from more than 200 appearances on business television. Tice has taken the role of a Cassandra to warn investors about the dangers of investing near the end of a secular bull market and the problems with relying on credit growth to expand the economy, and he has debated nearly every bullish Wall Street strategist. In September 1999, Mr. Tice hosted the New York symposium, "The Credit Bubble and its Aftermath" to alert the media, investors and policy makers about the risks created by the historic expansion of credit. The Symposium was covered by the next day’s front page of the Wall Street Journal. In June 2001, Mr. Tice testified before Congress regarding conflicts of interest of Wall Street and the consequences of capital markets that lack integrity.

Since his role at Federated, Tice currently serves as President of Tice Capital and executive producer and financier of a major motion picture entitled Soul Surfer, released in 2011. He’s also on the Advisory Board of XBullion, a gold-backed secure token and the Vantage Point Australian Macro Fund, a fund designed to make money in an expected Australian mortgage crisis. He’s also been a very active board member and investor in a cybersecurity SaaS company that provides ‘intelligent data’ protection.

Stocks will fall at least 30% in a drawn-out bear market, investor David Tice warns

Long-time bear David Tice has new warning for investors.

He expects stocks to fall at least 30% in a downturn that lasts two years. One of his major reasons: Business unfriendly policies from Washington.

“We now have a Biden administration that has a Senate and a House. They’re likely to enact very much more anti-capitalist policies,” the investor told “Trading Nation” on Friday. “They have already raised the minimum wage. That’s going to hurt earnings on the cost side.”

According to Tice, easy monetary and fiscal policies that support money printing will also sting Wall Street.

“All of this is not good for financial markets,” he added.

Tice is known for running the Prudent Bear Fund before selling to Federated in 2008, just as the financial crisis was unfolding.

Now as an advisor to the AdvisorShares Ranger Equity Bear ETF, Tice has spent much of his career making bearish bets during bull markets. His current fund, which is also designed to profit from underperformance, has been under pressure. It’s down 32% in the last three months.

In his latest warning, Tice contends the problems are piling higher. He also cites an overvalued market and coronavirus vaccine concerns for his pessimism.

“The vaccine is not really a panacea,” he added. “We’ve seen a lot of optimism about that, but there are new strains of the virus, and there is certainly risk going forward.”

Tice acknowledges his timing hasn’t always been on the mark.

“I’ve seen bear markets approach, and people have called me a perma bear,” he said. “I’m a believer in the Austrian School of Economics that says that the magnitude of the decline is proportional to the excesses created during the prior boom. I was early in 1998, 1999 and in 2006 to 2007.”

‘When it breaks, it’s likely to break hard’: Long-time bear David Tice has new warning for investors.

Despite his bearishness, Tice doesn’t have a timeline on when the market trouble will start.

“Markets tend to get extended,” he said. “But when it breaks, it’s likely to break hard and cause investors to suffer for a long time.”

So, Tice is still advocating gold, which up more than 25% since the March 23 stock market bottom, as a top asset for investors.

“Gold is dramatically under-owned by individuals and portfolio managers,” he noted. “Gold stocks are incredibly cheap.”

He also likes bitcoin as an investment.

“I don’t think that bitcoin can be ignored,” Tice said. “We have seen the price of bitcoin go from $10,000 to $40,000 which I think is foreshadowing potentially what might happen in gold.”

The White House did not respond to a request for comment on Tice’s remarks.


Disclosure: David Tice owns gold, gold stocks, silver and bitcoin. He also owns puts in the S&P 500 and QQQ.
