Quoted from Madmax541:

This thread has gone to shit, instead of sharing investment ideas it become back & forth attacks.
Every investment idea should be research to make sure it makes sense for that investor.
Its about portfolio growth, sometimes you will make and sometimes you will lose money.
Sound invests will make you money in the long term.
I thought we where here to make money.

If the thread has gone to shit, don't shit on the thread. Why not share what you're investing in and why?

Quoted from DBLM:

You yell out your own name a lot, don’t ya?

I don’t know what that means.

I do think it’s pretty strange for a financial advisor to brag on a forum about assets under management and, as he once did, post screen shots of a client’s account.

No weirder than a guy posting in a stock market trading thread who doesn’t make stock picks and craps on everybody who does? Is this some weird ego stroke for you?

Best of luck to all of you. Time to go keep continuing beating the S&P on a consistent basis.

Quoted from MrBally:

I've lost my ass on ZVIA over the past few weeks. Fortunately, I got in on the IPO of Dutch Bros. (BROS) and have more than made up for the ppp of ZVIA. May just sell at a loss and buy more BROS.
The car and walk up lines at virtually every Dutch Bros. in Las Vegas are like Chick-Fil-A.

Whoo… blood on the street today but BROS is defying the tide. Looks like a good pick.

#14805 36 days ago

Holding off, don't think the blood bath is over just yet. We all saw this coming right? Just not for the reason it's happening?

Keep steady.....news in China has very little to do with us. These are jitters that need to be worked through. The consumer is still strong and the fed is accomodating, unless some real catalyst gets ( tax hike, new variant, unemployment etc) introduced these moves are all temporary.

Agree. Not worried. The September slump will work its way through. My portfolio horizon is measured in years anyway, so fall another 10-20% for all I care.

It’s all paper gains until you cash out. Enjoy your life in the meantime, aye?

MrBally’s BROS pick is strongly resisting the tide today. He mentioned seeing “Chick-Fil-A” crowds at their walkup and drive-through locations… and that’s the kind of investment choices I like to hear about. Basically things an ordinary person can see, understand, buy, and get behind.

I don’t have any Dutch Bros. in my area so I have no idea how popular or tasty their product is. But sometimes seeing is believing!

(cuts both ways of course… we saw Krispy Kreme make an observable meteoric rise in the early 2000’s but eventually boiled over unlike Starbucks which has done extremely well over the years)

Have a bunch here…most are very crowded. One by the mall has a super long line all the time. Usually younger ppl both working and buying. Very loyal fan base. They specialize in very sweet expensive coffee drinks. Personally I never go but I’m a simple black coffee drinker.

I saw my 1st Dutch Bros when my son moved to Reno 2 1/2 years ago. Always packed at the drive thru and walk-up window. Now there are three in Reno with a fourth on the way. Now that I've moved to Vegas, there are 17 locations open with another under construction. Again, always a line at the drive thru's.

Reminds me of the Apple Store crowds. Who knows if/when Dutch Bros. tries to get airport locations like Starbucks & Caribou?

I get the Americana (plain coffee, have to specify hot) when I'm out in the mornings. Otherwise on the typical hot Vegas day or evening it's an Iced tea (black or green available) Shark Attack with a shot of Rebel added for me.

Check their menu out online or the app.

#14811 35 days ago

I've only got one green stock for the day... LCID (my old CCIV pick). I'm finally in the green again!

#14812 35 days ago

Also, the market is tanking today largely due to fear of contagin from the Chinese markets crashing due to some complicated property liquidity issues (it's complicated... look it up). What isn't being said is that the markets in Asia are all closed on public holidays until Wednesday. Expect some huge swings one way or the other in a few days.

#14813 35 days ago

Dang. BROS up over 18% while everything else tanks. Pick of the day for sure.

#14814 35 days ago

333 the Indices all start rising. PPT to the rescue again. Its a miracle.

Got in around 46. I wasn't in a buying mood, but I love dutch brothers. There is ALWAYS a line to get a coffee.

#14816 34 days ago

We are all individuals and responsible for our own choices and most importantly we all have different perspectives . 2 guys hear Ice yell apple apple and they buy apple after some research. On 3/8/2021 they both buy at 116 per share. In April its up around 134 and then drops down to 123 in June. 1 guys perspective is: Crap screw this junk and sells making $7 a share and is angry bc it was at 134 and did not want to loose all the gains (still made over 10%). Meanwhile the other guy is holding tight BC he did a bit more research and Apple is a good company and the little dip is OK. In September apple hits over 150. 2 guys using the same info and one guy is mad and the other is happy. Info is only the start, how you use it will determine each persons outcome.

#14817 34 days ago

"Purchase just enough to keep it in the green!"
"We are trying but it keeps dropping"
"Must.. close..green"

DKNG...... Not so much today.

It is an adding opportunity! LOL

#14820 34 days ago

Dutch Bros near PHoF on Tropicana. Actually just a few blocks away from the recently vacated location. Pic from today around 4:00pm local time. You cannot see the 2nd line that goes around the other (East) side of the building.

The after meltdown rally fizzled midday....the market closed red albeit not by much. I was watching FedEx to see what happens with their earnings, they beat revenue but the EPS was a miss and they lowered outlook....this is not good news, transport is a leading indicator for the consumer and the economy. Maybe we can chalk this up to higher wages and higher fuel costs.

[quoted image]

Dang... the BROS won't quit! Roared up to nearly 62 before settling back to around 55 by end of trading... yet still added another 6.5% to yesterday's haul. Really on a tear after that IPO and hasn't quit. Earnings per share is in the crapper, but no matter. It's all about emerging growth for the BROS. Let's see where they are in 2022 or 2025.

Meanwhile, in other emerging company news, poor battered Zeev added 3 1/4% today but still a 34% haircut since the early September high. Meh. Let's also compare in 2022 and beyond.

I think this Christmas might be more disappointing than the last due to the container ship cost increases and supply shortages. A lot of people might not be getting their gifts this year.

#14824 34 days ago

fed-ex and UPS increase their prices yearly like clockwork, and in the past few years have had a holiday surcharge
nothing new

#14825 33 days ago

LOL days like today are why I'm not a day trader. Now BROS is down 7%, Zeev up 3%. Who can anticipate the wild swings being made by millions of investors, fund managers, governments, etc, on a daily basis?

BROS is probably a good play. People love coffee, it is addictive, Dutch Brothers seems to offer a unique spin, they're expanding, etc. As long as they aren't mismanaged somewhere along the way, could be pretty rosy long term. I'll probably add a position tomorrow.

#14826 33 days ago

Been burned enough times now that if I can’t get in on the ground floor, it’s usually a good idea to wait until after lockup.

BROS has run so far so fast…hard pass for me until 1) lockup 2) price drops 3) it grows into its price

#14827 33 days ago

Talked to BROS employees the past three days (They are not baristas, they are known as "Mafia members") at three different Las Vegas area locations. All were given the opportunity to buy a small number of shares at the IPO price and are happy they did. Oregon Live ran an article today aboot the IPO and how only the brokerages, institutional investors and Insiders (including store employees) were the only ones able to get in at the IPO floor price. I kept getting locked out on day one with any limit order I entered. I would not buy "at Market" as I knew the price would spring up by a huge amount.

I'm quite happy and have held my ZVIA shares for now.

Only one I ever got in at the Ground floor was when Bally, the real Bally; Bally Manufacturing Corporation (NYSE: BLY) announced their entry into the Casino-Hotel business and formed Bally's Park Place Inc. in 1977. They made an offering of PARK shares and allowed Bally shareholders to buy one share for every two BLY shares they held. You had to send a check with the subscription form.

Bally also allowed you to offer to buy a 3rd share for every share you held with an "over subscription" offering. If all shareholders did not subscribe to the first offering, others could then buy those shares. A 2nd individual check was required and had to be sent with the other check.

I remember receiving that 2nd check back from Bally uncashed as all shareholders bought shares from the primary offer.

Quoted from kporter946286:

Well look what they are trying to do and who they just partnered with and who just took over the controls. Let’s look at who is their competitor in the US is. Coinbase is the obvious answer and they are huge.
The new COO saw BitMart launch and grow and its BMX coing trades at $0.20 and it’s projected to have a price of $0.50 in 2 years time.
BitMart current has a $34m cap and has traded, As a coin, all the way up to $4. Factor in the projected growth and your looking at 4 or 5 times the current value of BitMart. Which, on the high side, in 2-3 years could be $20 a share if they mail this launch.
Watch the presentation video on the NSAV video! In 4 days they will launch so o expect to make some money that day!!
4 days to load!!
Blockchain has a very bright future and is already anchoring a foothold in the industry.
The partnership with SBC it my mind shows they are legit, as well as does the new COO MR. Wong (who is much better then the old COO IMO)
I just don’t see much in terms of negatives. The only way this won’t work is some huge shift in the whole exchange driven environment that would render us immediately obsolete or unnecessary.
And really the PPS is currently at $0.10. So how much can you really lose here?
I want to retire and even if this reaches $1, $2 or $4. Your looking at, with a $10k investment now, $100, $200k or $400k. That pays off the mortgage and gets some the IRA looking healthy again.
COIN is the trailblazer and obvious king did it first. It trades at $244.
If they grow to be 1/10 just the current size of them right there you go $24 a share.
The industry is current at $3bil with growth estimates in 2025 to be $40bil
That’s a huge leap forward and ample projection to the future and it’s possibilities.
Plus my Father's Brother's Nephew's Cousin's Former Roommate told me so!

Quoted from RandomGuyOffCL:

Well Fiddlesticks [quoted image]

Every time it dips I’ve been buying more. My position is pretty small, so not an emotional issue as it swings. Debating on adding even more at this point or cycling back into other stuff to add to.

#14832 32 days ago

Today BROS gained back 2.2% and ol’ Zeev roared up 10%. Who can make sense of these wild swings on a day to day basis? It’s a stomach-churning thought for people who bet their life savings on these things… yeesh.

As for that 10% surge, *ahem*, I might be responsible for some of that today...

When's a time you doubled your money? Stock and why you picked it?

I recently read that if you start with $1000 and double it ten times, then you'll hit a cool mil.

I've passively doubled my $17000 ira over the last five years but I could have easily doubled it by picking three stocks: Microsoft, Nike, and Starbucks.

I've doubled a small amount on Starbucks, Snap, Xom, HRL.

Seems almost tantalizingly within reach, doesn’t it? Trouble is, that is ten *consecutive* doublings… a feat even Warren Buffett would be envious of today.

Microsoft, Nike, and Starbucks are three big winners for sure. But how many losers among them? A whole, whole lot. That’s why passive investing is so useful, if boring. By buying the basket, you’re guaranteed to capture the winners… and it is the winners who move the entire market. Miss one, and you’ll miss a big chunk of the momentum.

It’s like taking a cruise ship vs. riding on a wooden plank attached to an outboard motor. Sure, you’ll win the race if you’re crafty and lucky and no another boat capsizes you with their wake… but ten races in a row? Dang. Better have a bucket of Pepto-Bismol on the ready.

Still, it is a good idea to play with a smaller chunk of savings so one doesn’t get bored and feel like they’re missing out on all the fun.

Certainly better odds than playing the lottery, that’s for sure.

I was in on the Square IPO. Turned a $1000 in to 25kish. My wife picked the stock and wanted to buy 5k worth, and I was like "slow down, you don't know how this will turn out..." she won't let me live that down. AMZN and AAPL are my other stock doubles that I can think of off the top of my head. Buy good companies and hold, and they will probably double at some point, lol.

Doubling anything can add up real quick. The old parable, where you put a piece of rice on a chess board spot, then 2 on the second then 4 on the 3rd and so on, by the time you get to the end you a lot more rice than you think you would...

I agree with you wholeheartedly. Having said that I'm playing with 4K and I've almost doubled it. So I'm going to keep flipping my 4K and see how long it takes me to do.

Most of my 401k, ira, etc is in passive index funds. I won't buy junk corporates - either they must earn money or have assets.

I got AAPL at $8 (split adjusted) that’s almost 20x gain.

#14842 29 days ago
Quoted from NicoVolta:

Truth... and after factoring in fees over time, the margin slims even further. Meanwhile, the laggards usually do FAR worse. Is it worth chasing a few % points for the certain downside risk of losing years of compounding interest if they lag the quants? Do the laggards ever outperform enough to make up the difference going forward? Almost never happens. Who do you think pays for those gigantic Goldman Sachs salaries and offices anyway?
Market efficiency works in your favor. By the time a stock has a price slapped upon it, the work is already baked in. Why pay fees to let someone else roll the dice for you? Berkshire = buy things which make sense and don't bet against America. Bogle = don't pay unnecessary fees on compounding assets. Meme stocks = old fashioned pump-n-dump for the 21st century. Greed = everywhere.
As for those "hot tip newsletters", that's an old scam. Launch 100 newsletters (or 100 imaginary profiles, etc.) each one choosing stocks randomly. Cancel the ones which lag the market and upsell the remaining "winners". Throw in a bunch of technical charts, historical projections, unbridled exuberance, etc. By the time you've narrowed the field down to three newsletters/expert profiles which never tanked, it'll look like some kind of financial genius is behind them. Then charge $$$$$ for each upcoming issue and when they finally make a bad turn, disappear from sight with the profits. Example: Brinker's newsletter in May 2008 made the worst call of all... "Our cyclical health-correcting graphs show recovering strength in the economy"... oops. Cyclical what?
For a bit of fun, compare the sum total of all the buy & market timing recommendations in this thread with same-day purchases of, say, an ordinary diversified fund like SPXL (triple-weighted S&P index). Did the "Pinside Fund" outperform it? Was "optimal timing" required to capture those gains?
The very first post in this thread was December 13, 2016: "Good luck to anyone long in the market right now.. in my opinion, today would be a great day to sell and buy back on a bigger pullback. It should be getting turbulent out there very soon. Currently the Dow is at its most overbought levels I have seen in many years."
Following that advice would have been an absolute catastrophe. Not only did the DIJA pullback not happen, but doing nothing at all would have almost doubled your money in five years!
Not saying "I told you so"... legit curious! You can beat the market once in a while, but consistently? Almost never.

Opened up a position in SPXL.

#14843 29 days ago

Energy and financials are on a tear.....hopefully it will continue. I think the Fed tightening is coming into view so they're starting to plan for it...selling off tech and moving into industrials, financials and consumer sectors.

#14844 29 days ago

Fwiw, been banging the drum on ENERGY for quite a while. Patience paying off big time over past week. DVN, FANG and EPD, MMP and ET for div and total return.

Where does it go from here after huge rally?

It’s a “market of stocks” and our stocks have been in the sweet spot.

Passive investor? Good luck with that over the next two years. I don’t want to own “the market” of 500 stocks.

It's hard to commit any large trades with all the stuff going on. Debt ceiling deadline, infrastructure bill stall..tapering. I feel like we're missing good opportunities here due to all the uncertainty. According to some bigwigs(Dimon, MS chief) they're planning for a govt shutdown and higher interest rate environment. So maybe the best trade is not to trade..for now. Energy and reopening stocks maybe the safest bet right now.
