is Zaful legit?

Just like many other shopping websites, Zaful is also an eCommerce store where one can buy women clothes. This is a China based website, offering cheap sale on women clothing. But since few months, the questions on its credibility started rising. People continuously raised questions on Quora, Reddit, etc. asking is Zaful legit? or not.

There are complaints that people do not get the ordered products on the first go. And while the products appear cheap on the website, when the order is resent the 2nd time, a lot of taxes and custom duties add up to make the product extremely costly. In some cases, the quality of product is also cheap, and the complaints arise that those products are Zaful version, instead of the actual brands.

So, is Zaful safe or not, the voting of users is definitely against it. More and more people are terming Zaful fake, and preferring other shopping websites over this. But contrary to this, there are many users who like Zaful too.

According to them, some of the pros of Zaful are: The prices are moderate and no extra cost is added to the users (barring a few cases, though). But at the same time, the quality is definitely not upto the mark, and is unlike the quality that is shown on the models.

In nutshell, is Zaful good? Maybe! You can always experiment with low cost things that would not affect you adversely. Is Zaful Legit? Surely it is. This website was started in 2013 by the Hong Kong firm. And along with this, Zaful is available in India and many other countries all over the world.

Nvidia Stock Drops by 54% in 4th Quarter of 2018

Nvidia Stock Drops by 54% in 4th Quarter of 2018

Nvidia has been one of the best performers in S&P 500, with dramatically rising stock since early 2016 till September this year. But post that, the stock took an extremely bad hit, dropping by 54% in the stock price.

And this is not the only blow Nvidia received. Just ahead of Christmas weekend, the stock fell by 4.09%, closing at $ 129.57 on Friday. Since 2016, this has been the worst quarter for Nvidia.

But why has this blow occurred?

Nvidia was continuously rising due to the demand for processors to handle workload of AI and mining of crypto currencies. And that rise lifted its market value from $14 Billion to $175 Billion. But suddenly, in this quarter, majority of the investors dumped the stock of Nvidia, dropping it by whooping 54%.

This drop made it the worst performing S&P stock of 2018’s 4th quarter.

But Nvidia is not the only stock that got hit. Due to this, many others also got caught in this whole dropping index domino, for example Nasdaq, which dropped 21% this quarter. Many other chip stocks also got hit, just like Nvidia.

So this quarter performed poor for majority of chip manufacturing companies, including Nvidia, Micron, AMD, and many more.

And the primary reason for Nvidia’s drop is its relation to crypto currencies, specially the bitcoin. The bitcoin crashed severely this year. And that reduced the demand for the graphic processing units of Nvidia, which eventually led investors to back off from its stock. But this was not the sole reason.

Nvidia also used to provide data center requirements to cloud providers like Amazon. This segment failed to meet the estimates of Wall Street, which also became a major factor to its downfall. But now, when the maximum downfall has already occurred, both in cryptocurrencies as well as Nvidia, we are hoping to see rise this coming year.
