Is that not the truth though - to an extent? Growth has rapidly decreased (with no bright light at the end of the tunnel), forward guidance is showing poor economic conditions, and you still have stocks like NVDA & AMZN trading over 50x PE. Where’s the valuation coming from? From my knowledge this whole rally is inflation based. You take a look at lumber, oil, copper, commodities in general, and DXY and that’s what is being illustrated (to me). This can/should be due to China reopening as well as debt ceiling issues.

Now the tricky part is what will the Feds involvement be? The markets been pricing in cuts for months. The worst is yet to come in my opinion, these historically quick rate hikes lag. The effects will soon be felt and it’s very possible some event and hard landing occurs.

My positions:
I'm in $NVDA because "ChatGPT runs on NVIDIA" is the new "Windows runs on Intel."
I'm in $AMCR: It's a divided aristocrat that is also a very stable stock in an easy-to-understand business
I'm in $AMZN because my SO likes it. I don't but gotta keep the SO happy. They dominate cloud computing.

Hope this helps.

The next big junk heap to rally

So, the last 6 months or so we've seen numerous names that had absolutely radioactive sentiment yet they've rebounded sharply on some pretty small or questionable catalysts.

NFLX - customer and price saturation in full effect, main "idea" is to call customers password thieves, launches desperate and poorly conceived ad tied but has to refund advertisers... up 120%.

NVIDIA - incredibly high multiple, caught as the poster person of high tech and semiconductor glut, reveals a large portion of earnings are from crypppto (they call "gaming") where demand has vanished, up 100+%.

Bi+coin - left for dead as scandal after scandal and no more greater fools exist, n.ft myth and basic premise becomes a household joke - but crypot related names already up 50-100% this month.

META* - another poisonous company and product, became a global joke, clueless leader betting the company on legless animated puppets like an unfun version of second life. Up 60% on.... nothing?

TSLA - sociopathic owner, stale products that look like GM Saturns, slumping sales, aimless and corrupt leadership, finally facing real competition, having to absolutely slash prices to get rid of inventory, leader is off running a message board for authoritarians and their cultists, up 75% this month.

Any of these would have seemed like a terrible buy at their bottoms.


So, what's the current worst and irredeemable large junk pile that will have its 50-150% trash-to-cash rally? Some suggestions...

PYPL - nothing new, CEO still hasn't explained his hyperbolic optimism right before a straight 70% drop in value.

AMZN - gone from customer favorite to universally hated. Every announcement is more negativity, constantly degrading the value prop of Prime, getting rid of shipping incentive, doubling down on third party seller junk, untrustworthy reviews, delivery problems, no action on used and counterfeit merchandise, no leadership.

FSLY/NET - grew on the back of pandemic and social trends like WFH, Tiktok, remote schooling. World is opening up and content distribution more commoditized with slowing growth.

SOFI/RKT - alternative financials, Fintechs. The assumption is that mortgages and loans will be a stock market Death Valley for years to come thanks to fed inflation fighting panic moves. Their clients tend to be more vulnerable, younger, lower assets, lower credit, etc.

any of the EV juniors, suppliers, battery companies - things like Canoo, Rivian, Micro-Vast, Frey, QS. All were once valued on the premise of "what if they can just take 2% market share?" Now that feels like a pipe dream.

Which of these will have their 75% one-month bounce? Or what name do you think will?

As someone who bet big on AMZN stock sub $90 I would be absolutely shocked if by July the stock wasn’t trading between $115-$125 a share which would be at least a 30% increase from its lows earlier this month.

I started buying AMZN and GOOG right after the split announcements. I definitely hope that they buck the trend and start paying dividends. Otherwise, I don’t expect to recoup my principal this decade.

There is no right answer. How you come to YOUR right answer is dependent on when you want to use the $ and your appetite for risk. Bonds would be least appetite for risk. In the next several years AAPL has a very good chance of significantly outperforming bonds, but in the next year perhaps no. If it were my decision, and I was taking a least a few years before selling, I would sell some and exchange for msft, nvda, amzn, and a handful of choice dividend stocks. Keep in mind you will pay capital gains on anything you sell, so you’ll want to try to sell them in years you have minimal or no other income to reduce your tax burden.

Eh, the only issue with calling SOFI junk is Galileo. That is an innovative technology that allows fintech apps to access banking. It’s a best in class product. Plus all banks will suffer with the shift in mortgages from what they were to where they were going. SoFi only offers loans to “blue chip” borrowers and they don’t have brick and mortar liabilities… I think they’re actually going to put perform. You’re off the pulse there. (This isn’t a pump, I do hold equity in SOFI)

I don’t like your analysis on AMZN either. Everyone still uses them, they have a competitive streaming service, AWS is their largest source of revenue and they’ve been crushing M&A with acquisitions such as Whole Foods… They ran a little hard and are over valued but they’re not a garbage pile stock.

TSLA is going to collapse from this recent run. Especially when they don’t deliver 2M new vehicles like Elons tongue and cheek comment. And talk about now hated, Musk? He is your Amazon description.

Just an alternative view.

yeah i too saw this one coming, but only bought shares at 129 cuz i knew even those would make solid gains and wanted to mange risk. But man i'm kicking myself for not thinking TSLA options. i just made a nice return on AMZN and GOOGL options so wanted to preserve rather than risk.

TSLA is like crypto, when it gets moving, get on or get out the way

A strong argument for viewing the tech giants as equity conglomerations/indexes in and of themselves. GOOG, MSFT, AMZN, FB, AAPL, you aren't just investing in their core businesses, you get everything under the umbrella as well.

Agreed, if Google was this good at AI they’d be releasing AI, or at minimum would be where Microsoft is with their position in OpenAI.

Google is good at advertising that it’s, remember almost no other roll out from google has been super successful. All they have is ad biz and DOJ about to break up their monopoly on that.

Wouldn’t go with google on this.

Microsoft, Palantir, Snowflake, Amzn are all way better opinion with directly related or data provider for AI systems

The next leg down in the markets is going to be MASSIVE and where real money is going to be made. This rally is awesome, but all it takes is Papa Powell to come out hawkish and saying higher for longer, a couple mega caps (AAPL/AMZN/GOOG) to miss expectations and give poor guidance, then adios pivot dreams and soft landing -- recession back on the table.

That smart money (trillions) will be DCA around SPY $350.

Not really. Both would have the same number of days pass. The later expiration option may have lost less in dollar value due to time decay because theta it would have a lower average theta value than the earlier expiration one but it would still be a significant loss in time value. The IV of the later expiration will not rise as much. Take a look at IV for AMZN on its option chain and compare next week’s expiration with later ones (earnings are next week). So you may lose a little less in time value but it’s also unlikely that IV will rise enough to make the trade profitable.

Ultimately, the thought behind this trade is that gains from increases in IV will be greater than losses from time decay. You can get an idea of the underlying’s volatility by studying its volatility charts but it’s not a guarantee of what wil happen.

I’m not certain on how bonuses work with regard to depositing into a 401k. I have always thought they wouldn’t go in pre-tax. So in that case, I’d max out the Roth. Then I’d invest the Roth and the remainder of the money in three to six long term stocks. I personally am looking at Warren Buffets trades and picking from those.

You and I are in very similar circumstances, but my wife does a little better than I do. Here’s what else I do to set retirement, and create income for before I’m 59-1/2.

Max out an HSA, invest all of it in SP500 Max out Roth, I own a single family rental inside it Starting this year, max out 401k Starting this year, target is to put at least 40k in stocks. Right now holding CHPT, AMZN, GOOG.

Your question doesn't really make sense to me.

First, the "growth" vs "value" stock distinction is false: all companies are trying to grow so all companies are growth stocks. Some are succeeding and some aren't. A "value" stock is just a "growth" stock that sucks.

Second, It's not about profit vs. not profit. It's about the rate of **revenue** growth. For any company, all other things being equal, profitability is always a better than not but it's not necessary condition. Amazon grew like crazy for years without profit. probably there are very few long-time AMZN shareholders bitching about AMZN's lack of profit in 2007.

So IMO you need to recast your thinking about these stocks: which has the stronger business proposition?

AMZN - been holding on and off for a while, actually had a 100K position but sized down just before the Jan take off and missed all of it. Then sized back in with LEAPS.

LCID - This I just entered on Wednesday and Thursday, looking at order book and noticed large volume on BID and also ASK price being hit constantly so sized in half my position. I was meant to size in with options but market makers did not budge on the spread, so went with shares.

Woke up and noticed it was halted. Still holding.

>I could purchase 3.5x more shares of AMZN than VOO, which would make 3.5x as much money as VOO if I held both for the same amount of time, assuming they magically increased the same amount in that time frame.

Let me give you an example. Would you buy ARKK invest to own Tesla (number one holding) but with that you'd also be forced to own Zoom, Exact Sciences, Roku, Shopify, etc...? You may be stuck with stocks you don't want to own. Look at the variation in how these stocks have performed: https://mezziapp.com/dashboard/?id=bThvoYnq6E7ZNOl3QLVz

Good old Apple -- just chugs away and makes its shareholders money.

To be fair to this sub and "Reddit" stock picking, overwhelmingly the most common advice you hear is "DCA VOO/VT/SCHD, etc. and chill." Which continues to be strong (if boring) advice.

And SCHD since early 2021 is up about 20% + all the DRIP.

I know we're all mostly here for sexier picks, and believe me I have that gambling streak too and own lots of CRM, META, AMZN, and yes even some Gee Emm Eee. But the vast portion of my portfolio is in broad market funds and AAPL and it will stay that way.

So far from everyone here is this guy.

Definitely speculative.
However, AMZN, PCLN, AAPL, etc were all speculative back when they were $1/share or whatever their price was.
EV's are now in the same boat. But, which ones will be the winners 10 years from now? I don't know, but I've bought into smaller positions on a number of them to diversify. The ones that fail? Tax write-off, which reduces the check I cut to the IRS.

If DIS and AMZN can eat a healthy -3% red dick on Monday that would be great.

Could somebody try to explain to me why someone would purchase shares of individual stocks instead of an ETF with large holding of the stock they’re interested in?

For example, VOO or VTI instead of buying MSFT, AMZN or AAPL? Would you purchase individual stocks ONLY if you believe they will outperform the ETFs you’re looking at?

Not that I’m planning on throwing all my money into one stock, I’m just trying to understand the mindset of buying individual stocks over an index fund or etf.

Does the answer change depending on how much money you actually have to invest?

Do you focus on lower price per share stocks/index funds when you have less cash to invest?

Comes down to stragety and risk. Someone people will do swing trade or day trading, so it makes more sense to buy individual names rather than index.

>For example, VOO or VTI instead of buying MSFT, AMZN or AAPL? Would you purchase individual stocks ONLY if you believe they will outperform the ETFs you’re looking at?

Yes, the idea is to try to outperform the market. Like like at VOO vs APPL over the last 5 years:

APPL - 263%

VOO - 47%

>I could purchase 3.5x more shares of AMZN than VOO, which would make 3.5x as much money as VOO if I held both for the same amount of time, assuming they magically increased the same amount in that time frame.

Share count doesn't really matter, it's all about the performance.

If you buy 100 shares of a 1 dollar stock or 1 share of a 100 dollar stock, it's basically the same thing. It's all about how much the investment goes up or down.

Ummm what? If you're talking increase in $ value then yes. If % then you'd make the exact same (not counting dividends)

Yeah I dont plan on adding anymore to my amzn/aapl position, with that being said, should I just keep building onto VT?

Keep my current aapl/amzn positions or close them out and move then into VT??

I expect AMZN to do big things for bulls this year. I just think it's worth shorting the next few days.

My heart just squeezed my chest a little bit harder. I wish you luck getting out at break even or above.

I hold AMZN too, but nowhere near those levels.

Thanks for your submission!

To keep things interesting, we want to see big gains and big losses!

So we've set the following thresholds for Gain, Loss, and YOLO flaired posts:

  • YOLO posts must be a minimum of $10,000 of options or $25,000 of shares and recently opened.

  • Gain / Loss posts must show realized gains or losses of more than $2,500 for options or $5,000 for shares.

We want to see the actual trade. What you got in at, what you sold at. Then tell us why you did it. Give us the story of why you're a fucking genius (or idiot).

This is what a great post looks like:

$17.2K Gain on AMZN - OP described his gain in the title, has a clear screenshot showing both the entry and exit, meaning his gains were locked in, and they explained their reasoning in the comments and what they learned. All around a great post!

Here are examples of what could get your post removed:

Here are examples of amazing posts which could have been even better:

  • $75,000 DDOG Loss. - This is a great post and one that won't get removed. However, the OP could have talked about why they entered the position in the first place, what their target price was, and what went wrong. OP didn't stick around in the comments to answer any questions.

  • $1.1MM Loss, No details - OP simply posted a screenshot of their overall portfolio balance. It's definitely a big loss, but it's not that interesting without OP talking about what trades they were in and why. OP didn't answer most questions in the comments which left many readers speculating on what happened.


All that being said, we are here to help. We want to make it as easy as possible for you to post to our community. We have to balance this with making the subreddit interesting for our readers.

If you need some guidance, don't hesitate to reach out to modmail and we'll give you some pointers!

Every time you buy VT you are already buying quite a lot of APPL & AMZN because of their market weight.

You missed the first part. Amzn, nvda, amd, msft, googl, aapl, F, tsla, HD, and cost is easily 50%. Other 50 is boomer mix of cash and divvies

NFLX lost its steam after the first couple of days after ER

TSLA is gonna push towards 185 before retracing back

NVDA is more dependant on AMZN ER than AMD.

If I were you, I don't touch puts today. Infact I ain't gonna buy puts till Wednesday close.
