“Bad times are incredibly good for Palantir … bad times really uncover the durable companies, and tech is going through bad times … interest rates are the reason,” Karp stated Thursday on CNBC’s “Squawk Box.” “Will this deadly tidal wave wipe out some companies? Yes it will.”

The Federal Reserve on Wednesday raised benchmark rates of interest by one other three-quarters of a proportion level to a variety of 3%-3.25%, the very best since early 2008. The Bank of England, the Swiss National Bank, and the central banks of Norway, the Philippines, South Africa, Taiwan, Vietnam and Indonesia adopted go well with, mountaineering charges to regulate inflation that has spiraled during the last 12 months.

Palantir is a developer of information evaluation software program that went public through a direct itemizing in September 2020 after almost 20 years as a personal firm. The inventory is down almost 60% this 12 months.

Karp stated solely these high quality companies producing sturdy items would survive the laborious instances.

The danger of a recession within the U.S. crept greater because the Fed vowed to beat inflation with aggressive charge hikes. The central financial institution has dialed down its financial projections, predicting greater unemployment and far slower GDP development.

Karp believes that the scenario is much more dire abroad.

“People are scared s—less about energy outside of America,” Karp stated. “They are so scared about the macro-political conditions that no one wants to talk about them. Their enterprises are built for a static and unified world of peace. The balance sheets obviously are often not prepared for what’s going to happen, which I think is going to be pretty bad in the next couple of years politically and economically.”
