Ya. My double dip into KNDI is popping. Made money a few months ago and was tempted to get back in at $9 after Hindenberg short sold it. It dropped to $6.80 but some reason is up over $1 today back to $9. So breakeven even.

Sweet.

What another day of AMAZING gains. Up 12% already in my high vol portfolio and my low vol portfolio is up 4.0% YTD. That possible next round of stimulus looking good.



what site do you use?

Tone for the week looking grim as congress seems to be thrown into chaos.

Markets seems to be pricing something in here and it ain’t over exuberance

I'm curious how big tech fare in the market this week, especially those who started purging conservatives from their platforms. Generally that's not good for business, but I honestly don't know anymore.

Big tech holds the larger weights on the index. So typically if the index is falling anything below -0.2% the wider index is falling. So I think you can see a broader sell off tomm in tech.

If not the market is just going be feeding on unfounded optimism.

Guess I need to be following this thread. Wife’s Grandfather is not doing well and he started briefing us on the inheritance. He wants us to start investing it and growing it. I’ve only slightly messed with stocks but will have to get more in-depth with it sooner or later.

TWTR entering oversold territory this morning. Looking for a correction (> 10%). I shifted away from TWTR bc of regulatory risk and into PINS early last year.

FB and TWTR imo are toxic stocks. PINS, MSFT (LinkedIn) and SNAP seems to be the favs.

Internet content is taking a beating thanks to Social Media giants. The broader industry down by an average of 2.0% (premarket). So now might be a good time to parse through the data and find some winners who can easily rebound.

Twitter taking a hit makes sense. Losing Trump and presumably a bunch of his followers is a no-brainer.

Can we leave politics out of this thread please. I left it for a while for a reason.

NIO up 8.0% on the release of its new sedan. I think the value is still stretch compared to other Chinese automakers like XPENG.

TSM is a stock i'm still loving.

I've been looking at GME since the MS deal. The stock is both super risky and tantalizing. It peaks and valleys seemingly 10% at a time.

dumped my apple stock (6 figures). Had it for almost 10 years. Also I dont really see how they can expand their market much more. I want TSLA but, like most people, keep telling myself to wait for a pullback, haha.

Bad day for me. Down 2%. My worst day in the markets in probably 2 or 3 months.

Damn it was mostly flat for me. Only a gain of .11% so far. But it been pretty much like that for me all day. ETSY,DKNG, TSM, carried me combined with my other stocks. It seems I sold my cannabis stocks early. Really good gains there from canopy.

Down to 6 stocks. 6 for 6. All red.

Not really. I think it still has loads of momentum but I would wait till after earnings or at least 5%-10% drop. I think its running a little too hot.

I'm favouring the alternative to mega tech right now like ETSY, PINS, SNAP etc. ETSY I valued it at around 181 based on its last report. WallStreet is valuing 200 with an average price of 170.

Its also nearing its overbought on its 14 day RSI. So it could run more tomm and then drop after.

Portfolio down 0.8% after yesterday's 6%+ run.

Took some measures to soften the blow and bought some puts in companies that were likely to fall. So overall not a bad day despite a flat market.

Value and small cap continues it run

Value Index up 18.0% in 3 months

Russell up around 38.0% in 3 months

GameStop up 40%.

Fuck. $27.

I bought GME a couple years ago chasing those rumours a holding company Sycamore was going to buy it. I think I bought it at $15 and bailed when it dumped to $12 or $13. It gyrated up and down as the buy out rumour resurfaced again when I held it and was actually up $1, but then it fizzled and I bailed losing money. I was hoping for a $20 buy out.

If you look at charts, I had it in that mid 2018 range waiting a good half year.

Can't believe it's almost $30. It bottomed at $2.57 during covid peak hysteria.

I bailed at 27.90. Seems likely there will be a snap back to low 20s in the next few days, when I'll jump in again and hold till 40.

I never watched GME. Going through the financials now. Anything in particular I should look at?

I don't think so. It's not an especially good company. It's a meme stock. They always do well for a year or two when new consoles launch, and there's currently some fishy business with too many people selling short.
