Disney is popping!

#10152 58 days ago
Quoted from pinballjah:

Ok,, thanks for the info. Could probably squeeze out an additional 37% yield if I wrote the $13 Sept calls for around $3.00.

I was considering selling the $13 MAR call last week. Glad I didn’t because it’s over that today. Unless you are looking to sell the SEP 13 for $3.00 and then buy it back after the time value had shrunk considerably.

Even if it is over $13 come September, I am happy with the yield from the calls.

Quoted from iceman44:

This "re-opening", despite the media's attempt and some states effort to continue the lockdown and fear and panic tactics is RAPIDLY approaching.
I believe i saw a number of 63 million people in the US already vaccinated and doing 2 million per day. Do the math.
By the April time frame hits its all-in game on.

No way this happens - here in oh people 65 are still having trouble getting vaccinated. This won't play out until after summer - distro is all f'd up since nothing of this scale has happened recently.

with the market having a so-so day, was hesitant to check my holdings, but not a bad day so far...

Quoted from loneacer:

FSLY is down $45 in 2 weeks. Don't know if it's cheap or not. I've been swing trading 200 shares of POSH for a few weeks. Buy around 69, sell 72-74. It works until it doesn't, but it's worked 4 times so far. Bought today to try for a fifth.

fwiw. Andres update

"Fastly (FSLY) reported very strong numbers for the quarter, but guidance was underwhelming, to say the least. The stock is getting punished for that and it declined by more than 15% yesterday. I am planning to keep the position and evaluate it in the future based on its ability to deliver in Edge Computing, which can be a game-changer in the years ahead.

The Update
Fastly delivered a 40% increase in revenue and a dollar-based retention rate of 143% for the fourth quarter, so the company performed very well during the period. Revenue was moderately above expectations, so nothing too impressive but still strong.

The problem is that guidance was for a 30% growth rate going forward, in line with expectations, but it still leaves much to be desired for such a young company. Fastly is making more money per customer, but it really needs to accelerate customer growth. Customer count increased to 2,084 from 2,047 in Q3 2020, so there is a lot of room for improvement there.

I think that management is being conservative and setting the stage for outperforming expectations going forward, but this remains to be seen in the data. We don't have evidence supporting this theory at this point.

Fastly has been focusing on building its product and developing a top solution for Edge Computing with Compute@Edge. This can be a massive opportunity going forward."

#10157 58 days ago

Scr.to down over 20% after doing a 10 to 1 reverse split. Don't own it, but another case of a reverse split being bad for a stock short term.

Suncor doing real well today, where most of my money is, still a lot to go before I would consider selling.

Since it broke through 81.62 previous low - next level to watch is 63.51 - if it breaks through that - it's goose is cooked.

POSH floor (at least in the sort term) seems to be around $69

No way this happens - here in oh people 65 are still having trouble getting vaccinated. This won't play out until after summer - distro is all f'd up since nothing of this scale has happened recently.

I'm cautiously optimistic and between these two scenarios. Biden pledged to ramp up vaccine availability to 300 million by July, if they get the supply up then distribution can step up through regular pharmacies, hospitals and the pop ups just like the flu shot. Amazon pop up clinics have been happening here now since they pledged to help, reports are they are really fast and efficient, I bet they are trying them in Seattle first before expanding them nation-wide.

But, with wide vaccine distribution, do you think Americans will suddenly feel comfortable being around people again? Do you think they will come back to restaurants, theaters, theme parks and hotels in the numbers they used to? From what I'm hearing from friends is many people think their behavior in public will forever be changed. There may be some very long lasting effects from the pandemic that change the way businesses operate forever, and I think a lot of those changes were already coming, it just sped the progress up towards more digital streaming, more delivery at home and less brick and mortar places. Personally I'm fine never stepping in a movie theater or department store again and I know I'm not alone there.

Just like 9-11 changed the air industry. Covid will change life for many years to come.
My best friend and Dr just mentioned sat night that face masks in a clinic/ hospital situation may last a lifetime.

I think where you live makes a huge difference. In South Dakota, where we have had very little in the way of government mandates, life has been changed to a small degree. Many people are wearing masks in stores like Wal-Mart and offices (many are not), but they and restaurants are still busy; we have sporting events, malls, and movie theaters still open. We just had an indoor stock show in town a couple weeks that was packed full of people and an indoor rodeo that was also packed. The Sturgis Motorcycle Rally went by with no appreciable increase in cases. That is why so many people are moving to SD, FL, and TX where they can live without this "new normal" BS. I think most people are wanting things to go back to the way they were prior to March 2020 but unfortunately far too many people are irrationally scared and falsely believe that the mostly ineffective lockdowns, masking, and social distancing is the right thing to do. I can only hope that as more people discover the truth of what a massive overreaction this all was that it will go back to being weird when you ARE wearing a mask at Wal-Mart, as it should be. I don't need to go to the theater because I have a much nicer one in my basement, but I have continued to go to grocery stores, department stores, home improvement stores, sporting goods stores, book stores, electronics stores, etc during this entire past year and I want to continue to do so. And I know I am not alone because there are a whole bunch of other people there every time I do. I didn't really go to sport events or concerts before but I could see how they could be affected more, just like movies. With as good as streaming has become along with the insanely cheap, huge TVs you can now buy, theaters might very well be in trouble without some massive innovation to elevate the theater going experience.

I hope not. I am a physician and will find a new path if I have to wear a stupid mask for the rest of my career.

Same here. Alotta people are out and about with masks on. New normal will be people wearing masks, not not going out.

I wouldn't use South Dakota as an example, infection rates in South Dakota have been the second highest in the entire country (125,850 per million) and the population of the entire state is smaller than that of most cities. Regardless of whether you think masks, social distancing and lockdowns are effective during an pandemic, outlier states like SD aren't very representative of how Americans will operate going forward, especially when it comes to your investment strategy. It's less about what you or I think and do - it's more about what the larger trends in behavior and business will be.

Can we stop with the 'everyone is stupid' comments. What you believe is not what everyone believes and it certainly doesn't make you right or wrong compared to anyone else. (unless you are a virologist)

On topic, reality is, this will change how things will be done going forward. Some in minor ways, some in big ways. Here, we try to figure out the way to be the most financially secure out of what might happen. One thing it certainly will do is make people much more twitchy regarding markets for some time.

I do agree, I think restaurants are fine. They seem to be packed.

I do not think movie theaters are going to recover. They were hurting before aside from a few movies here or there (ie: avengers). In general you heard more people complaining about them than going to them. I think Drive Ins might make more of a comeback (or..I hope they do).

Comedy/show venues/concerts will come back - but allowing fewer people - which will drive prices up - which will make others not want to spend the money anyway.

Casinos? Old people who didn't care anyway. They'll be back, because gamblers gotta gamble.

Cruises? Not sure. I wouldn't step foot on one before the pandemic. Surely won't now.

Airlines. They gotta make changes. Air travel is pretty much a necessity these days.

I was using what I know as an example because I live here. Cases aren't the best metric for how "well" a state is doing, deaths are a much better metric. Having a high case/fatality ratio would actually be a good thing. Furthermore, a disproportionate amount of severe cases and deaths are from the reservations, which have their own, much stricter, policies.

SD might be an "outlier" (in a good, non-draconian way) but my point about people moving here in droves over the last year speaks to the desires of people in other states to avoid and reject this "new normal".

Did I call someone stupid? Being irrationally fearful is not the same as stupidity. I am not a virologist but there is a large breadth of training that goes into getting through medical school, internship, and residency. I also have a sister with a PhD who did research on microorganisms and a father who is physician with a masters in epidemiology. Plus, I have a degree in mathematics and know how to critically evaluate data and research, something I have spent countless hours doing over the last year rather than listening to the news, politicians, technocrats, or anyone else with bias, for my information.

People are not moving to SD in droves to avoid social distancing guidelines, that's false, the state only gained 5,590 people since the outbreak.

My state has gained over 25 times as many people and we have way more restrictive guidelines. The two main reasons why people move remain jobs/retirement and family. People have been retiring to Florida and Texas (and Arizona) for years, those trends continued through the pandemic and had nothing to do with social distancing guidelines. You've convinced yourself of a narrative that doesn't seem based in factual data, it's likely not a good strategy for investing in stocks.

Let's not play games. Saying irrational/followers is basically saying the same thing based on your own feelings. Point is, stick to the stock stuff and leave the COVID stuff to the professionals.

It sure as hell is, TN, TX, FL, SD, and many others are flourishing right now. You are going to have Right leaning states moving away from mandates and Left leaning states keeping mandates. You will have states like TN, TX, and FL get a massive growth spurt from people fleeing lefty states. It is already happening. We just had our 6th California family move in last weekend in my neighborhood. They are moving here in droves and everyone of them are sick of this BS.

Maybe in MI, 3 of my best friends are MD's and they are all completely against what is going on.

Reminds me of the old commercial that went: 4 out of 5 dentists agree. The fifth one...

Which then reminded me to look at tdoc...it has been bouncing around a lot lately and today took a hard turn going into earnings.

It isn’t too far off where I thought it would end up after earnings. Should be interesting to see the movement coming up this week.

I look around and I see the possibilities of so many sales, and not a big enough stack to buy all I want. Definitely going to have to slow down and be careful.

[quoted image]

There's a reason they're spamming this thread and not that one...

Anyway, on the SPAC front, has anybody researched SVAC? They just announced their merger agreement with Cyxtera (collocation and data centers). I guess it's not as sexy as CCIV+Lucid because the announcement barely moved share price. I'm still researching the numbers part of the equation but I think this might be an interesting one to jump onto.

Tennessee gained 56,509 people since the pandemic began, SD less than 6,000, this isn't flourishing. Growth trends in TX, FL, AR, CO, WA and GA predated Covid by years and are based on where people move for jobs, taxes and retirement, not politics. Mandates are loosening everywhere based on science and lowering infection rates, not politics.

You will find investment advice and strategy based on politics not very welcome here and certainly less profitable. We are here to make money together, not to bs about politics.

When a stock is given a price target by "them", when do they expect that target to get hit? Say talking head A has a price target of $50 per share, up from $35, when do they expect the stock price to hit $50? A year, A month?

#10188 58 days ago
Quoted from DadofTwins:

Carnival, $1 billion share offering. Anyone know what the price per share is going to be?

It looks like that announcement came right before closing and then after hours the stock dropped $2 per share, the CEO sold $897,000 worth of stock a few days before this announcement and they still aren't operating. The long term trend before the pandemic was downward for years too. I'd be weary, that feels like multiple red flags. Or am I missing something?

I want to know why bank and analyst price announcements are not considered market manipulation if they are grilling reddit posts as possibly being manipulation.

Damn. I'm inclined not to sell in after hours because it's so volatile. It's hard to tell if this trend will continue this badly into tomorrow. What are others doing?

And how does it work if you hold your CCIV stock through the merger?

Do you think politics affect stocks? I am interpreting this statement to mean you don't. Curious.

#10193 58 days ago

I like Carnival. Made a bunch off of it over the last 11 months and sold off all my shares yesterday on the upswing. Kind of regretted it today due to the increase again, but felt better after the announcement and the stock pulled back. As long as they can hold on until sailings resume, I think they will be ok. There is gonna be a TON of demand imo, and probably not enough cruises to satisfy customer demand.

Many people are wearing masks in stores like Wal-Mart and offices (many are not), but they and restaurants are still busy; we have sporting events, malls, and movie theaters still open. We just had an indoor stock show in town a couple weeks that was packed full of people and an indoor rodeo that was also packed. The Sturgis Motorcycle Rally went by with no appreciable increase in cases. That is why so many people are moving to SD, FL, and TX where they can live without this "new normal" BS. I think most people are wanting things to go back to the way they were prior to March 2020 but unfortunately far too many people are irrationally scared and falsely believe that the mostly ineffective lockdowns, masking, and social distancing is the right thing to do. I can only hope that as more people discover the truth of what a massive overreaction this all was that it will go back to being weird when you ARE wearing a mask at Wal-Mart, as it should be. I don't need to go to the theater because I have a much nicer one in my basement, but I have continued to go to grocery stores, department stores, home improvement stores, sporting goods stores, book stores, electronics stores, etc during this entire past year and I want to continue to do so. And I know I am not alone because there are a whole bunch of other people there every time I do. I didn't really go to sport events or concerts before but I could see how they could be affected more, just like movies. With as good as streaming has become along with the insanely cheap, huge TVs you can now buy, theaters might very well be in trouble without some massive innovation to elevate the theater going experience.

I hope not. I am a physician and will find a new path if I have to wear a stupid mask for the rest of my career.

Dude, the Covid statistics for SD were literally the worst in the world across the board for a good stretch not too long ago. And Sturgis was disaster. For the entire country. Thanks for nothing Sturgis.

So Business closures, bailout programs, product shortages and Manufacturing delays, economic migration, housing bubbles, tax and payment deferrals, emergency loans and Transportation disruptions have nothing to do with the Stock Market?
Have you lost your Vulcan mind Spock?

Don’t you have some prepping you need to go do, grey man? Do you even buy stocks?

Damn. I'm inclined not to sell in after hours because it's so volatile. It's hard to tell if this trend will continue this badly into tomorrow. What are others doing?
And how does it work if you hold your CCIV stock through the merger?

The buyout was at $15 per share. So I’d expect the stock to drop probably close to that? I don’t know.

Quoted from DadofTwins:

I like Carnival. Made a bunch off of it over the last 11 months and sold off all my shares yesterday on the upswing. Kind of regretted it today due to the increase again, but felt better after the announcement and the stock pulled back. As long as they can hold on until sailings resume, I think they will be ok. There is gonna be a TON of demand imo, and probably not enough cruises to satisfy customer demand.

Just listened to an interview by their CEO. I could probably listen to that dude read the phone book. Great voice. Seemed very steady and was resolute that they’ll bounce back. My parents are big time cruisers and while I haven’t discussed it with them, I figure they’ll be back at it once considered safe.

Quoted from TRAMD:

Do you think politics affect stocks? I am interpreting this statement to mean you don't. Curious.

Politics effect stocks. Trade wars, tariffs, taxes, stimulus packages, where funding goes, etc. can all effect stocks. I was talking about letting your personal political beliefs heavily influence your investment advice and decisions. And spouting off about politics usually is frowned on upon here unless it's wrapped in good trend analysis.
