Quoted from DCFAN:

The Moderna vaccine appears to be a success. Look for another big up market day. Disney and MAC are going up.

Good news, especially the storage temperature, but man am I getting tired of science by press release.

That being said, gogo ditch stocks!

#5652 1 year ago

Did a bit of shopping, added to my beyond meat position while it’s beat down, added some more Calloway, and opened a position in Teladoc.

#5653 1 year ago

Here is a good summary on MAC and sums up how i feel. MAC more risky, SPG rock solid.

The fact that SPG went through with the Taubman purchase, even at an $800 million discount is telling and shows huge confidence.

Meanwhile, thank you for the 7% dividend while we wait. Today might be another head fake BUT.......maybe it's not.

Either way, Fauci says the vaccines are here AND by April we could be back to "normal". Yeah, it's "right around the corner".

Btw, we are already "back to normal" and have been for a long time, down here in Texas.

"Great long-term investing is 1% buying, 99% waiting.

The power of compounding can only be achieved by holding a security for years if not decades.

The mistakes that will most impact your performance are likely to be decisions to sell too soon.

Being passively active via a "coffee can" portfolio approach focused on quality can create tremendous alpha.

One of the most powerful concepts in portfolio management is to let your winners run. Simple, yet very difficult to execute.

Great investing can be counter-intuitive.

It requires you - for the most part - to do nothing. No tinkering, no trimming, no re-balancing of all sorts. Simply buying and waiting for years to let the story play out."

LET THE STORY PLAY and LET YOUR WINNERS RUN!

The "Covid reopening story" is just beginning. Baby steps.

Quoted from RojerLockless:

Oh I guess I should have said 30 year fixed 2.7 CMG Financial and THEY paid the points to get it down to 2.7
I've got a contact # if anyone wants it. But anyone who's over 3.5 should def refinance now while this crazy interest rates are as low as they are. Call your bank !

I just closed on a refi for 2.25% for 15 years and got a HELOC for 3.35%, its like free money right now.

Yep, the lower than 30 years were far lower ARP. Just depends on where everyone is in their process of payoffs.

Sell Tesla now that it spiked after hours or hold on?

#5658 1 year ago

Probably too boring for you guys but Walmart is slow and steady climb.

We will see what the earning report brings tomorrow

It depends on your investment goal and your purchase price. I bought my last batch at $475.00 so I'm holding on...

Bet it re-test the high of over $500. I would hold...

Quoted from DadofTwins:

I have a cost basis of 158 per share with no plans of selling a single share. This company could still be in its infancy with all the other possibilities. Autonomous driving, robo taxis, energy, possibly hvac, etc. Still scaling at an exponential rate!

#5662 1 year ago

Amazing how much more action this thread got when the market was taking a beating a few months ago.

Wasn’t one guy predicting a 15,000 Dow?

I'm not selling a single share of my Tesla for 10 years. Tesla today will seem dirt cheap one day.

#5667 1 year ago

Too many damn Bulls. Might be awhile before I re-enter the melee, overpriced.

#5668 1 year ago

Tesla to the moo.... To Mars!

They said the same about IBM, Xerox and GE. You may be right, though.

Uh, it's best to buy low and sell high. When the real impacts of 2020 begin deflating this bubble it will be time to buy again.

#5673 1 year ago

All very similar, Xerox invented the PC, GE was cutting edge electronics at one time, IBM was, well, IBM.

Not to be overly argumentative, but I think time is running out for that dip to happen. 2 vaccines and a therapeutic are not too far off from going out into the world, and another stimulus is supposed to happen in the next few months. I’d like to think that things will gradually start looking up in the real world, even if the market jumped the gun a little.

Oh, my bad. I forgot you can see the stock prices of the future. I bet that's handy! I'm sure people said the same thing when Tesla shot up to 1000 bucks presplit

I have a stupid question. I'm terrible at making money in the stock market, so perhaps I should just stick to my crypto.

Anyway, how do you know when they aren't winners anymore? That's my hardest part. I don't know when to get out regardless of if it's going up or down. Do you just set a blanket percentage and go with that number? For example, buy stock X and if it goes down 10% you sell, if it's up 20% you sell.

That's where I get stuck.

The real answer is no one knows. You can say oh the earnings, or the new tech, or any number of "things" but they might just slowly go up forever like Apple. Or the might go down and crash like GE.

I personally stop investing in a company when they stop innovating. Amazon is constantly innovating. Between the cloud or "drone deliveries" they are continuing to improve and get better. Tesla hasn't even dipped their toe in battery storage and solar for every house in America disrupting the entire energy sector. They haven't touched autonomous driving, or even their "Taxi service" These are all things still on the horizon.

I can't wait.

Until you get a feel, definitely put in stop losses to protect your downside. If you want to insure that you make money on rising stops, you can put in a trailing stop which will trigger a sell if the stock drops X percent from a current price. This can cut you on volatile bull stocks as they can have big swings, but insures that you lock in a profit.

How do you know if it a stock is not a winner anymore? Ultimately, that comes down to your risk tolerance and your investment goals. For me personally, if I see a stock just going sideways for a while, I dig into the fundamentals to see why that is the case. If I don't see any catalysts for it to change, I exit. If I think a stock is going to be dead money for a while, I will move it to something with more upside at the time.

Down 8 to 12 percent. That's when I'm out.

#5682 1 year ago

I think we are overbought so exited some of my trade positions today. Rang the register on Netflix, Visa, Las Vegas Sands, and JP Morgan. Holding on to all of my core positions. I think the next few months could be bumpy, so positioning accordingly.

It's pretty tempting to sell a few shares and buy another pinball machine though lol.

I had a gut feeling about PLTR from the start. Loaded up and averaged at $13.5 a share.

I plan on holding this one long term.

I am up 40ish % and wrote some covered calls and those are up too. can't believe i got a great stock tip from a pinball forum. awesome!

#5689 1 year ago

I love it! Glad to see people are winning! Who else is joining us in the PLTR Prayer Circle?

Also, who is still riding with me on RKT? It has already done very well if you traded it when I did and it has plenty of upside.

It took me longer than I care to admit to figure out where the Viatris stock came from when I checked my account this morning. I was ready to file a ticket with the broker to figure out if I somehow bought it while under the influence.

Hopefully you guys didn't sell off your New Shiney VTRS.
This is a great post covid stock.
This free stock is a 2-3 year hold imo.

Good for you! I bought in the mid 30's. I am on the train long term.

I could see a day where Disney somehow buys draft kings, pairs it with ESPN and then spins it off.

It will take some time but eventually gambling will be legal in all states and there is huge opportunity there.
