GME is definitely printing the meme stock money. CHEWY CEO inspires confidence as well as unbelievable amount of shorts that apparently shorted more than 100% of available float. This thing can ride up high, if it goes up to 40$ I'll sell a bit and let it ride the wave.

the short percentage is still unbelievably high. Around 30%. So I wonder if they just bought or being slowly squeezed

Ryan Cohen is pressuring the board to change their company model and they just appointed 3 new members and Jim Cramer was talking about it on TV today and tweeted about it,

It's most definitely a meme stock, maybe worth a gamble.

Ya I just finished analyzing the financials. It’s trading wayyy above my fair value. I need a decent MOS for this stock to justify it current trading price.

Micheal Burry still in this stock by chance ? I heard he owned $10,000,000 worth of stock at $7 a pop

Weird day, started as high as 1.20% down only to go 0.10% positive.

Basically another flat day for me. I should have gone further into small cap.

I know right, im kicking my ass on Canopy.

The stock is up 22.0% YTD. I had a $100,000 investment in that and Aurora. I knew Cannabis stocks were going to rise after the certification vote but damn the corporate fundamentals don't justify the price movements.

Market saturation is also an issue.

I made $10k each on ACB and APH a couple years ago. But lost back a bunch of shitty HEXO. I originally had IIPR at $33 when it was only maybe half a year from IPO when it started at $15-20. It was so volatile, I dumped it at $43. Soon after it hit $50...60...100. Now I think it's $200. I had it for most of 2018.

If I held, I would have a stock at $33 paying a dividend of $4. At the time, the divvy in their early stages was about $1. All I had to do is hold on for a 3-4 more months and then it ramped up fast.

Remember when we spoke one time where we find tips? It was a Motley Fool reco. While all other sites were talking producers, this one article talked this REIT and nobody else did. That's when I jumped onto APH, IIPR and Medreleaf (which got bought by ACB later). lol

Vol in low cap stocks are too much for my soul. So I don't blame yah for selling early.

Ya. It was way more volatile than the producers.

In that $30s price, there were days it would go up or down $5. At the least the producers had tons of news bites and PR plugs. All IIPR news bites are few and far between and involve leasing buildings. So you got a stock going +/- 10% with zero news for weeks. Nerve wracking.

So my portfolio continues it run. TSM up 8.0%, ETSY up 3.0%, DKNG up 2.3%. Got rid of PLUG today.

Added newer positions today TPR and OKE Expecting some strong improvements in both stocks for earnings season.

Looking to add some REITs.

Seems equities on fire in the mornings for 10-20 minutes and then just fade.

TRXC making a nice move. They make surgical robotics similar to ISRG, but have stumbled making sales.

TDAC is one of the SPAC plays I'm in, they are planning on merging with lottery.com for online lottery games etc.

PSTH is another SPAC backed by Bill Ackman, the company they are merging with has yet to be announced, but I bet whatever it is will cause some buzz.

I'm also in on FSR .... (Fisker Automotive, they're planning their own EV for 2022). I was in on the this SPAC before the merger and made > 80%, sold out, and rebought after it dipped. Planning on holding until at least $25+

Got some other shit you probably aren't interested in, I'll speak on those after they pop (hopefully): AUPH, BCRX, ITRM

Currently even on PLTR and eating shit on CRM, lol

Somebody on wsb mentioned he pulled it already but who knows.

That dip half an hour ago was predicted but I didn't have time to keep an eye on it.

Here's all you need to know about GME: pull up the MAX chart. It peaks $50-60 after every major console launch (not really including the Switch).

Personally I wouldn't touch here, though there's still probably some meat left on the bone, but it's certainly not a long term hold in my book.

I not touching it at all. The financials alone don’t justify that price.

and if I applied a foward growth to its PEG and project is P/CF. I still don’t get that price.

I would buy the company that strengthening its online purchasing store right now. Or put more money into Target.

what does that mean tho, short squeeze?


If you’re shorting the stock. Think of it as taking the opposite position of the direction of stock. Long a stock is up and short a stock is down. When you short a stock, the stock is also borrowed so you don’t own it per se but you are paying someone a premium for “borrowing it”

A short squeeze is essentially where you have a bunch of shorts ( people who shorted the stock) and are being squeezed out bc the price keeps rising. So the premium they paying for shorting the stock becomes very unprofitable.

Welp......that ain't no tesla options chain but damn imagine buying the call options. How deep in the money you would be right now.


'Burry shorted the housing market and everyone laughed at him. He was right and made a killing.
2 years ago Burry went long Gamestop and everyone called him retarded again. Today he (and u/DeepFuckingValue) were right
Burry is shorting Tesla. FUCK.
Guy is a wacko - he goes by the name "Cassandra" on twitter. Cassandra was a Greek goddess cursed to utter true prophecies, but never to be believed. Bury also deleted all of his tweets recently. Not sure what that means.
TL;DR: Tesla longs are probably fucked within the next year because Dr. Burry doesn't seem to ever miss, he's always just a bit early'

&
The aforementioned u/DeepFuckingValue from above. Called a year ago when GME was in the dumps.

Alright so, currently sitting on a 37.0% year to date return. I shifting more of my portfolio to energy and value.
Mine went up 25% in 2020 (and that was even going down with the ship for half a year with covid where my portfolio touched a peak low of -40% on March 18 before rebounding hard that afternoon). Lunch time March 18 was the ultimate lows in the markets during covid.

So for in two weeks in 2021, I'm around flat. My luck ran out about 3 weeks ago after dumping RMG for a 70% gain in one month. Been flatlined since.

Haven't bought anything this year with my stash of cash. Got to take a dip back in as I've missed the boat 2 weeks now sitting there.

Look at value and energy if you want. I think mega caps will remain flat for most of the quarter and next. You might able to squeeze a 10 to 15% return from there but I think 2021 was priced in.

I'm looking at alternatives, value and energy. I think green is going to make a huge run this year as Biden sets his green agenda in stone.

Right now its not only Green Stocks. XOM, COP and OKE are running.

GreenStocks I'm looking at is REGI, Canadian Solar, GEVO, PLUG ( had it and sold it earlier today), JINKO solar

There are some smaller cap stocks like VTNR (which is up around 50.0% today)

A few car stocks TESLA, NIO, XPENG, LI AUTO........(Don't count out traditional car makers like GM and VW).

ETFS - the usual TAN, ICLN etc.

I remember seeing AMD at $2 in 2016. And AMD has a history of huge roller coaster rides where it goes from $5 to $50 back to $5 every so often and they lose money most years. Who knew it would explode to $90.
