What's your goal in life? You want to look cool or retire early/comfortably? My wife and I make $300+k and a few years ago got a $40k highlander (new) on a great deal. Cars aren't investments and just get us around.
Are you maxing out your 401k? Are you maxing out a Roth IRA? Do you have 12 months of expenses in an emergency fund? Those are the kinds of questions that come to my mind, but I'm fiscally conservative/responsible and want to retire early.
That’s fair, but not everyone’s experience. Maybe you are very lucky?
I was interviewing for a job that was supposed to be a customer liaison. I know generally what the position should be since my company has one. I started looking deeper at it and I'm demand planning, supply planning, submitting po's,... I'm basically doing the whole ass supply chain for the mian customers. I'm honored and excited they thought so highly of me, but yeesh. Pay me for the actual position or shrink the JD.
“… executives said it's well prepared for a rocky economy and that customers' balance sheets remain solid.” Where have we heard this before?
My theory is they probably weren’t over leveraged last year but as the value of the underlying assets depreciate, they will be squeezed and eventually bust.
Yes, they do have FDIC for customer funds, but how quick do you think that will pay out? With bankruptcy proceedings, etc, who knows how long it’ll be.
But what if it's for a higher level position? I'm being considered because I have a JD and I naturally come off as assertive in the work place... lol. I think it's a really good question.
Wtf happened today my calls got fkn pounded like a white girl when im off some JD
Tell that to JD Rockefeller
On the JD play, which one are we playing JD, or JDCMF are we playing?
Medtronic. Maersk. HLAG shipping. Roche pharmaceuticals. KBC bank (Belgium), Bayer, Givaudan (perfume) and SGS SA (consulting) are the positions I’ve opened on the past 4 weeks. All are on discount lately. I’ll come online in June/July 2023 to take the critique /praise for whatever happens with those. Also JD from today.
Friend who never tells me shit and is an EVP and a huge European bank based in Asia. The smartest guy on his desk told him that his “traders pick” for china was JD. Apparently they just tow the line. They do shit that other competitors don’t do. So they’re gonna come out of all this on a very strong footing.
Got my hand up. JD “inside info”
True, true. Thank you for pointing out the differences and I see them now.
Maybe I'll provide more granular detail. Here's P&G's JD:
>Brand Manager - You are a catalyst to the brand’s strategic choices, product and commercial innovations, holistic communication plans and brand executions across all media and consumer touch point, leveraging data, insights, creativity, and innovation to achieve unparalleled product superiority. From Day 1, you will be assigned full responsibility for your brand and business results, You are accountable for developing and executing strategies and plans in partnership with internal multidiscipline teams, external creative and communication agencies.
>- Assist in conceptualizing, developing and executing marketing campaigns, including major sales (e.g. 11.11), seasonal festivals (e.g. Chinese New Year, Christmas) and other major cross-category campaigns.
- Collaborate and coordinate across stakeholders, including working with internal account managers, user research, creator manager, and other cross functional teams (e.g. Marketing team, PR, graphic designers, product team, R&D team etc etc) for campaign creation and optimization.
- Conduct data analysis on campaign performance (including against order and GMV targets) and offer ongoing recommendations for campaign optimization, such as innovative ideas, partnerships and activations that enhance campaign performance.
- Keep abreast of trends on social media, e-Commerce, digital marketing and industry developments, and leverage trends and developments to optimise campaigns.
I admit my interest lies more in brand strategy and the longer term vision of a company versus the short-term digital marketing campaigns. Would you say that's what P&G's job description sounds like? What they wrote is rather broad so I'm just afraid when it comes down to the day-to-day, it'll be similar to that of TikTok's. Happy to hear your thoughts, thank you so much!
SINCE THERES PROTEST IM BUYING PUTS ON JD . COM
And for me that is the only reason I need to NOT touch JD at all.
Also completely overlooking that the farms basic costs have sky rocketed and there is a massive labour, fertiliser and seed shortage on farms through the uk and Europe.
FYI Agco is a far superior tractor company, it’s only the red necks in America that think John Deere are good. Here in the uk they are considered expensive dog shite. You want the best? Buy a Fednt. Want value for money? Buy a Massey. You want cheap? Buy a new Holland. You want something that is expensive, low value for money and inferior quality? Buy a JD 🚜
3300 is enough to buy a car with some life left in it, but a dealership probably isn't going to have a lot in that range, so you'll have to burn some shoe leather.
Figure out what you need and want. Figure out how many miles are too many, what models you will and won't consider, etc.. Then start watching marketplace, start talking to friends and relatives, etc.. (Don't underestimate the friend-of-a-friend market but go in with eyes open - lots of people know a scheister here or there.)
I was on the market a few weeks ago with a 4k budget (replacing my mom's car) and my wishlist was Honda or Toyota, no more than 140K miles, other models needed a very good reliability rating from JD Power, and no more than 120K mile to compete.
In my area I found that the "best" deals tended to drop on Friday evenings, and they were sold by Saturday evening, so I had to be ready to pounce. But after a couple of weeks of "stalking" the market I figured out what a good deal would look like and was ready to jump.
I wound up with an Acura TL with 132K on it for right at my top budget of 4k. I also saw Honda CRVs in that range, and several Ford Taurus and Focus models. Do your research, be willing to pass up bad deals (anything with a poor reliability history is bad news - better to go older and reliable, ugly and reliable, etc. than to buy something with no life left to give.) and learn the market, then take your courage in both hands and jump in.
Masturbating is on my JD under “perform all other duties as assigned.”
Then how has the Chinese economy grown faster than any economy in the world? How were billion dollar companies like tencent, BABA, JD, bytedance built? Clearly you have no idea.
Not to burst anyone’s bubble but I work in HR and almost every colleague I’ve had has asserted the whole job site filter is a myth. I’ve never heard of an ATS that actually auto rejects. With that being said it is a great idea to mirror the key words in the JD in your resume for when a recruiter looks at it.
$JD John Deere is at a 6 month high
It's too high right now and with a shaky market it seems that puts into earnings is definitely the way
It tanked big time after its earnings last time around
I farm in Mississippi. We have transitioned a lot from JD to Case. Tried getting a air drill planter last year from JD and they couldn’t get us one due to the employee strike. I’m riding with puts. Why not
I’ll recopy my comment here:
“Because those funds can be used for a multitude of expenses and alternative investments as opposed to just qualified education. I have an advanced degree (JD) but I don’t intend to force college on my kids. Giving them a diversified investment portfolio when they’re old enough seems a better use of my funds.”

My AAPL and JD puts from Friday absolutely printed
Look for remote jobs in data management/engineering. I’m currently working on a JD for a days manager (engineer) entry level $110k.
Tesla received billions in bail outs, subsidies and government aid starting way back in 2008. They also had a huge recall as of late, recalling nearly 320k units due to tail light and air bag issues. Sales peaked in 2021 and have been slowly on the decline since.
Their QA is some of the worst in the business. Tesla was ranked lowest on JD Powers list in 2020, citing 250 problems per 100 cars. Even Elon openly admitted they have an issue.
The real reason is that market cap is a totally fictional, made up value. Look at Theranos. It pulled in $700m in investments and hit a $10b evaluation in 2013. Clearly they weren’t producing anything of value as Holmes was faking everything. I don’t understand why people can’t comprehend that these figures are there for finance bros and Wall Street to keep doing what they are doing: fleecing average people of their cash. It was very little (if almost nothing) to do with how the company is doing.
Did the housing crash of 2008 not teach anyone anything?
As someone who's quite familiar with manufacturing (25 years experience), with many of those years in automotive. Telsa is in long term trouble unless they start making some significant changes. They are still a boutique toy manufacturer compared to someone like Toyota.
>make changes to thier cars and manufacturing lines every 3 hours.
You sound like a marketing brochure. Modular manufacturing is nothing new. Works well at the low production numbers, and high margins (for now) that the work at. Even tiny Mazda made over 300,000 more cars than Tesla did in 2021.(1.2 million vs Teslas 900,000) Let's see them make 8+ million cars annually like the big boys
Telsa ranks 30th out of 33 makers in JD powers intial quality.
Honestly I would love to see Tesla thrive. It's great to see a new car company startup and drive innovation. However they are deeply flawed, and cheerleaders and fanboys can only take you so far. And thus overvalued.
> legacy auto dont even have one good product
Domestically, Ford sells more F150s than Tesla sells cars. Full stop.
725k Ford F150s in 2021 vs 300k Teslas.
> teslas all cars are fantastic products.
Totally dude. If by fantastic you mean industry leading in most problems per car after purchase than yeah tesla is taking home the gold
> why you poeple dont understand that you dont need more lineups you need couple good car models in each class. not some weird autistic looking models
My dude, just because you're deep into the spectrum doesn't mean that corporations are too.
> this is why apple and tesla are still winning they make one good product and build it for years.
You just tried to compare Tesla to apple?
LMAO. check please.
I much prefer JD. It has one of the lowest sales/market cap I’ve seen especially for an e-commerce company. They’ve grown their business for many quarters in a row and have seen good returns on their R&D. I’m loading up at these prices
Alibaba, Tencent, and many other Chinese companies.
Why? Extremely inefficient and opaque market. Inefficient markets have biggest risk aka biggest potential risk/reward.
Particularly, Alibaba because it's been the de facto stock to short/hate/sell when news on Chinese stocks come up (and also been the victim of massive regulatory pressures from the govt).
JD is also taking market share but I think generally, all these big names will do well simply due to absurd valuations. Alibaba alone if you subtract its assets on its P/E trades at single digit P/E in some days. Quite absurd if you think about it.
I believe China long term will continue to do well and open up with 'Chinese characteristics'. And I don't think after Russia/Ukraine situation Xi is dumb enough to wage war in the near future to Taiwan. Especially when Xi's own daughter lives in USA.
Just curious...........where are you located?? Posted some comments above. I'm in the northeast. Lots of housing going on right now, some heavy highway. The prevalent name you see in construction is CAT for this region. I have no idea how the Ag side of Deere is or what percentage their farm equipment is compared to construction.........and then they have their retail side (lawn movers, small tractors, etc) for the home owner. You mostly see Kubota for the small and compact tractors..........not so much for JD.
Why did it took so much time for the Fed to react to inflation? Why are they always so late?
Best regards, JD,
Received a PMM role this week here are some of the details on the job requisition. Hopefully this helps!
Here is the gist of the JD, top-level requirements and day-to-day listed items:
(didn't include years of experience requirements or degree requirements.)
- Developing a deep empathy and understanding of the customers and segments across geographies.
- Pull together disparate internal data sources from across the company that relate to the audience including usage, telemetry, finance, competitive, research and others as apppropriate
- Work with internal partners to drive decisions and locate insights.
- Leverage learnings to support other team activities, such as content development and messaging.
- Help inform business strategy by pulling data from multiple data systems in order to tell compelling explanations.
- Will be taking data (internal & external) and stitching the data together to help create views and insights based on this data.
- Disqualifiers: lack of experience with cross-collaboration.
- Best versus Average candidate: Someone who is knowledgeable at interpreting data, and has creative capabilities to interpret the data.
- Typical performance indicators: Ability to meet deadlines and the quality of their work.
- Experience with Excel & PowerBI.
- Experience turning data views into articulated points.
If you are wondering why JD dropped after earnings beat it was because I bought calls at market open. Avg was $66 for 2 calls. Stock was going sideways for sometime after I bought calls. As soon as I sold for a loss these calls went all the way to $100. Looks like market watches closely when I trade. Fuck you stock market.
JD is the trade for tomorrow. See what earnings say and let it rip
Also JD lol, I haven’t been contributing the entire year, so could I effectively catch up by matching higher through december?
Tickers on my WL that I'm expecting hard dumps on = nvda, ba, mRNA, jpm, gs, msft, coin baba and jd
Been holding puts on Goldman fucking Sacks for almost two weeks (and yes have been getting crushed on it, luckily traded some tsm/upst/JD calls to offset it), BUT it has started showing signs of life past couple days and is looking like it's going to dump HARD soon. Gimme me back my money beeetch! Tldr: 12/16 $350p
I've Seen a couple of these in supply chain. Most recently was a planner role that also managed their own buying, transportation, inventory, demand, sales and lastly reporting.
The JD end with This is a self-sufficient role
Reminds me of what people were saying about BABA, NIO and JD.
They got fucked on friday with the softbank news. JD went up 9% and baba barely got 1%. So it was definitely due.
Implied moves for earnings next week(this is up or down) - 517 companies reporting:
I’m 🦘 gang. Have played calls on JD, TQQQ, AMD and a couple others in the last month but yes my SPY shorts got stomped out yesterday
Maybe don’t think everyone is a perma bear?
JD up 8% and BABA lost all it's gains immediately. I have 0dtes for BABA... this is some bullshit

Trading Thesis - Why These Crayons Taste Better
Technical analysis and indicator based trading tend to use past price performance in order to predict important price levels today.
This analysis is based on the current option open interest. With that option open interest, it calculates portfolio-level greeks--notably Delta and Gamma. More importantly, once the portfolio level greeks are established, I can now simulate the change in greeks at different price points. From there, I can find the price levels where portfolio-level gamma is the highest, and the portfolio-level delta is close to 0.
For some tickers, the underlying price reacts strongly off of delta neutral, gamma max, and sometimes both.
It's the reaction off of these price levels in the past that is being used to drive trading signals.
The plays and target entry prices given are calculated using a binomial option pricing model that reflect the expected size and duration of the reaction from gamma max or delta neutral. A lot of these plays are profitable by underlying moves in stock. The best plays benefit from the directional move as well as the increase in IV.
Notes - Something to give you a new wrinkle
- If the price has moved past the entry price, exercise caution. Something changed between the time these plays were generated and market open.
- Look to sell half your position on a double, and freeroll the rest to exit at your discretion.
- I tend to risk up to 1% of my total capital on any trades I take. If my conviction is lower, I'll only allocate 0.5% or even 0.25% of my capital to the trade, and dollar cost average in.
- The trades were calculated before market open, and so are based on information up to yesterday. Keep that in mind when deciding to enter well after the fact.
FAQ - Because others have already asked.
- These plays are mostly puts. Are you a gay bear?
- No. It so happens that the companies have had some recent run-up which implies they are overextended. These trades are primarily some form of mean-reversion either toward or away from an important price level.
- Are you entering all these plays?
- No. There have been a dearth of plays in the WSB morning talks, and so I opened up my bag of tools slightly wider to point out more plays with a probable edge to help lead apes to more gain porn. Go through this curated list of plays, pick the ones you like based on whatever additional analysis you use, and get that gain porn.
- You mentioned a new play on the same ticker in the past. What does that mean?
- The new play should replace the old play. The old play is likely now invalid and if you haven't entered in, don't chase the price. Remember that a new day's worth of data has been produced and the newer play reflects that data, the older play does not.
- Where are the crayons? I only see words.
- Click the links above.
- Have you back-tested this?
- Yes. Results show a moderate Sharpe Ratio (1.7), with an expected win rate of 63% of trades (7% margin of error)
- What is the historical performance?
- The realized Sharpe Ratio is 1.85 with a 67% win rate. Based on the trade performance so far, there is a 95% chance the expected win rate will be between 49% and 72%. (Stats as of 2022-10-28)
Ofc republicans are too blind to see what a douche turd jd vance is
JD Vance's mom is giving half off blow jobs for her meth habit in honor of him winning
JD Vance what a fucking flop.
My apologies for not being clear, I am not interested in a masters or MBA, I am interested in earning a JD, law degree.
Dude, no reason to be that way. Did the same, had a FT job and tutored you MBA types on how to actually write while getting a JD. Not everyone had the opportunity or combination of good timing/work ethic to do that. Be grateful not condescending, living on your own shouldn’t require the Herculean efforts people have to make at this point. Take a minute and remember how it was to have more week than paycheck, it sucked. Let people vent and don’t do the hard ass routine.
My alma mater has a STEM MBA (which annoys me in perpetuity that it's not just called a STEM-BA but whatever. They didn't ask me). They recruited me pretty hard, as a graduating science major when they started it, and a few acquaintances did it. They appear to be super successful doing techy management jobs in cool places.
Seems to me that an MBA right after a business bachelor's isn't very useful, but a business degree ➡ JD or STEM ➡ MBA can be quite lucrative paths. I guess the multiclassing is really what clinches it.
Where I work supplies hoses for JD. Top quality shit right there
Confirmed. Like from The Guardian here https://amp.theguardian.com/world/2022/nov/05/chinas-unswerving-zero-covid-rules-see-no-let-upThe Guardian
Stocks like Alibaba, Tencent, JD, gained about 10% late last week on rumors that China will relax the COVID lockdowns
nio too close to support for me. i think baba, bidu, and jd still have room to fall though
It’s my money and I need it now. Call JD Wenterworth!
Just looked over the latest tiger global holdings i could find
JD, MSFT, META, SE, NU, CRWD
Those all got destroyed, I think they are in grave danger already down 55-60% ytd probably more, since their last update those names sunk even more. Could see -80% year for them
Think I should get a JD degree?
to pay JD Vance and Blake Masters
so the MBA guys great insight is that most earnings option plays are overpriced and you'll get iv crushed even if youre right on direction? you need a fucking joke ass degree like an mba for that?
-top 10 JD guy
Our prices are basically American prices converted to CAD, too. New video games are around $90 after tax, a fifth of JD or Smirnoff is $25+ after tax, gas is almost $10CAD/gal.
We make less and pay the same.
Shouldn't have bought all those god damn lady fingers. Absolutely jacked up demand and yeeted that core inflation. (Made up of JD, lady fingers, and WD40)
Oh no I don't know what is called! But I never claimed to be an expert. And I never claimed to know what JD prosecutors say about Google or companies breaking the law. So they talk to you, and you know exactly the reasons why Google is breaking the law yet is not being prosecuted?
There's probably nothing in your entire life that didn't require a JD product at it's initial sourcing.
I lost so much between BABA and JD just the thought of China leaves a hole in my heart, almost the size as the one they left in my wallet
Can confirm sold BABA and JD for 70% loss
Either depression or calls on General Motors for the Astro minivan achieving vehicle of the year by JD Power and Assc.
You are in favor of economic risk by the people with money. You also show no worry about the lack of real access to allowing working class people to secure their families future.
That’s my point. Also the poor dont loan themselves money. The banks profited off every loan they made and they knew what they were doing. Have you literally not looked into the details of the subprime housing crisis?
That JD isn’t helping you be a reasonable person.
What a greasy way to blame the poors for the schemes of the financier class. Oh you got your JD. I get it now.
No these are not common carriers or utilities. Stop making things up and get some facts. Where'd you get your JD exactly? You should be asking them for a refund based on that wild misunderstanding of law there.
Short version is you seem to be making enough money to do all the things you've mentioned here. Personally I'd pay off ~half of the debt, buy the car, and start a college fund ~10k/y will give them the ability to do instate and still make a dent in JD/MD school (the "maybe" can wait til they actually exist). Use the leftover and future income to max your 401k contributions.

I will say this, a PhD will always be available for pursuit. The same is said for a JD. You might be older than your contemporaries when the time comes, but if you "really" want it, then age shouldn't matter.
Do it, don't do it, but age shouldn't be why it needs to be no
My JD calls and MSFT puts are going to both hit, how fun
It is not a paper trade I sold some JD calls I bought yesterday morning to buy them before close
In a serious note if someone regarded wants to buy the Chinese ADR dips, at least go with JD, PDD etc which seems to be in more of CCP's good grace vs say... BABA
Avoid any shit that have extra baggage to it like BILI, MOMO, which can all easily get extra regulations thrown at them for some societal benefit or some bullshit.
Communism and capitalism don’t mix. Chinese ADRs listed on the US exchange could go to 0, yes even the big ones like BABA and JD. The writing has been on the wall for years. China does not follow IFRS accounting standards and their “president” for life is likely invading Taiwan in the coming months/years.
JD is coiling
To do what, idk, but trading range is getting tighter and tighter
> ive had metalica and tailor swift inside an hour in the last year.
In the last month I saw touring bads Garage a Trois, Viagra Boys, Melt Banana, Dan Deacon, King Gizzard, Meshuggah, Soul Glo, and I'm seeing DoMi + JD Beck in a few days. I've also been to a good handful of small local shows in that time. None of them are going to North Dakota. I'm <30 minutes from Red Rocks and about 30 other venues of various sizes. An hour drive to a couple stadium shows I don't care about isn't gonna convince me differently, it's just not at all comparable.
> if you wanna go to a weekend game 6 hours away
I'm definitely not trying to say everything sucks outside the city and there's nothing worth doing but that's 12 hours of driving through nothing to go to a football game. College football is fair, but you mentioned pro Illinois and Minnesota teams you root for because they're the closest but neither are close at all. People living in Jersey have like 14 pro football teams in that range to choose from. I've got the Nuggets, Avalanche, and Broncos (RIP) right up the road with fans packing the streets in jerseys. You can't possibly compare the energy.
There's a lot of places you can buy a cheap house, but they're cheap because other people don't want to live there.
I'm still waiting but I will be DCAing starting either at 50 or when Chinese market overall starts reversing.
I'm gonna go in for BABA, JD, TIGR and FUTU and a bunch of random EV/battery + AI stocks. I'm also gonna go in hard on some mining corps especially for rare earth metals.
I'm pretty sure Chinese markets are going to start recovering soon. The entire thing is now undervalued.
