Oh, they DO change the prices when their costs for goods increase. I think you're saying that excess inventory (like at WMT and TGT) would cause them to lower prices and blow out inventory for cheap. Nope, not gonna happen. They specifically addressed this on the earnings call, and said they didn't have much remaining inventory, and any remaining inventory of grills, patio furniture, etc was being put into storage, and NOT put on sale. COST has had Christmas stuff for sale since Labor Day, and by Christmas it will be gone, cuz it always is. Great retailers like COST manage their supply chains extremely well and don't over order.

As for supply shortages causing price increases, they pass on those costs to consumers (assume with 14% markup), and on the call mgmt said they have had no trouble doing this. Not sure what location has to do with margins that wouldn't be already included in the company's cost for goods (again, marked up by 14%).

But yes, everything in COST (ex hot dog lol) has gone up in price.

Not going to give you a negative - your opinion is your opinion, and your entitled to it... just that you guessed incorrect. See I am not talking just those jobs...

Real quick - let me state - if you have no skills and no desire to improve your skills/knowledge you deserve to be paid what ever is being offered... you want to make a better wage, they work to get the skills or knowledge to increase your wages. Also, those jobs are slowly being replaced anyway - go into any McD today in a major metro area - you don't have "people" taking your order, you have a touch screen. AMZN & WMT will soon be replacing more warehouse workers with robots, it is only a matter of time.

But like I said, not just those jobs... so let me give you an example, my wife oversees 6 of the 8 different Finance Departments for publicly traded tech company - last year she had a manager needing to back fill two positions. Her manager found two candidates but they had limited experience (under 3 years) - so my wife also interview them, and then had to work with her boss (the CFO) to meet with the head of HR to adjust the pay ladders so they could make an offer to them. It wasn't the fact they had very limited experience, or a degree from a lower rung university, or poor credit rating or something on their criminal background check.. it was the fact the pay ladder for a new hire with 0-3 years of experience was $45-49K, Neither candidate would except that range, they demanding 63 to 65K if I remember correctly. That is a huge wage increase for any employee that should be at $45 to 49 max... and this isn't a no skill shit job dude... no punching the clock, no hourly bullshit.. it was an exempt positions, entry level accounts receivable position - with a very large company that also offers great benefits - Yr 1 to 3 is 15 days PTO & 8 personal days, freaking unbelievable health insurance ($1000 deduct/$2500 max out of pocket) Dental and Vision, Health Club reimbursement, 401k with match, optional 100% WFH, every Friday EOD is 2:30PM not 5PM, quarterly "team days" (like two weeks ago all 8 finance teams - across the US had team outings, the one here at HQ - they all went to lunch then took in a MLB game.

I can't say for sure, but I will lay odds, that IF they need to ever do a RIF, then those two will be first to go, and when they start backfilling once things turn around the salary offering will be back at $45-47... That is how it works, that is what the Fed is going to empower employers to be able to do... the inflation we are seeing isn't 100% because of the war, we were already seeing skyrocketing inflation - it is a wage induced inflation man - the hardest and most painful to reverse.

"These shortages have allowed everyone from oil companies to online retailers to auto manufacturers to increase their profit margins."

This statement from the article is simply not factual.

Let's look at oil companies:

Small cap --

https://companiesmarketcap.com/apache-corporation/earnings/

Large cap --

https://www.macrotrends.net/stocks/charts/CVX/chevron/net-income

Now online retailers, this is more a function of taking market share from brick and mortar and Walmart taking market share from smaller players. Walmart and Amazon earnings growth rates don't look that much different.

Amazon --

https://www.macrotrends.net/stocks/charts/AMZN/amazon/revenue

Barnes and Noble, Kmart (gone), Sears (gone), Walmart

Auto makers? Which one? Where do I invest? All of the charts are flat. If they're making more money than it's somehow not showing up in the earnings.

Beta is a way to measure a stock’s correlated volatility. So if the S&P 500 moves up 1%, and the stock has a 1.5 beta, then it would be expected for the stock to move up 1.5%. Beta hedging is a way to target a particular volatility level for a portfolio. This could involve many things: shorting an index ETF, buying an index ETF, adjusting the position size of individual stocks to achieve a 1.0 beta target, etc. this makes intuitive sense when you think about it. A low beta stock like WMT will move less than a high beta stock like TSLA.

Depends on the stock/etf. In my unprofessional opinion, things like VOO, Apple, WMT- these are buys and holds. Averaging down on these safe stocks is a good long term play.

the SJW subreddit is somewhere across the street

FFR directly increases the cost to raise capital. by increasing the cost of debt, companies are less likely to expand thereby reducing costs of hiring/pay. this then hurts the pockets of everyday americans who are now unable to afford consumer discretionary items such as entertainment, leisure, etc. by constricting spending, inflation is reduced.

this is the only answer, if you want to believe in corporate greed (which as an investor, you should be grateful for but based on your response, i think you just want to feel morally right), go ahead. btw, the largest retailers target and wmt had horrific earnings due to the cost of increased freight and supply chain issues but feel free to pop off about corporate greed

This is one issue, but I'm purely looking at the chart and there's a massive head-and-shoulders pattern formed over the last 2 years and it looks incredibly weak now. I could point very recently to WMT, TGT, AMZN, I think the case could be made here that a miss would see a massive gap down

watch out on FDX, although it seems priced in like how NFLX previewed their earnings, SNAP still dropped even more after dropping from previously lowering guidance too. But i do agree that there’s a chance of green for FDX. WMT only beat cuz they lowered guidance so bad. Short Strangle seems good on FDX, or selling a put and a call spread to limit risk on the upside.

For NIO didn’t you also follow options flow?

Not trying to bag on you or anything, just playing devil’s advocate in order to test your conviction on the ideas.

My thoughts are that we will derisk going into CPI. I compare the current situation to the June CPI were we tanked hard before. After inflation had not peaked, that killed the bull thesis imo for the next few months. 100bps started getting priced in so now there’s fear. What I think will happen is that Jpow says 75bps, we rally hard, remember it’s always the first few moves that are the fake one, and then dump the next day as it is also VIX expiration. He could also mention that they will consider 100bps so i’m going to be extra cautious if there’s like 2-3 fake out moves.

will be monitoring how much 100bps is priced in and going to be on the look out for CPI leaks

I am also jacked to the tits on Monday and Wednesday puts that I bought on Friday. I’m hoping both Monday and Tuesday will be blood red, but I wouldn’t be surprised if one of them were flat

# Trading Thesis

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

* If the price has moved past the entry price, exercise caution. Someone knows something that I don't know.

* 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

* 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.

Relatively honest companies like WMT and ATT telling you that consumers are struggling.

Dishonest companies tell you guidance good, keep buying.

They'll keep it up until they can't anymore. Or until after all their executives finish selling their shares. But go ahead and keep buying.

Some good bargains depending on the sectors hit when the entire market has a bad day due to ETF outflows. E.g. If your favorite oil-gas stock loses 5% because WMT and TGT shit the bed, it might be a good time to build a position or bet on a rebound.

T hasn't been a good business for a long time, not seeing the catalyst for that to change. The yield (which was lessened this year) has been appealing to a lot of people for years only to see the stock continue to crater. The telecom business - while such a part of daily life given phones - is imo just not as good of a business as many think. In a recession, customers may not prioritize paying their bills on time and the CEO has said in recent months that they have already seen a little of that happening. If you look at 2008, from the top in 2007 to the bottom in 2009, T lost about 44%. If you are really concerned about a larger recession, I'd rather a WMT or ABT.

"I've definitely taken a loss on it over the past couple months but I can't quite stomach letting my PARA go"

You've had media stocks get obliterated this year and you may see some consolidation in these names (which and at what level and if any who knows), but I don't really understand the appeal that these names (see also WBD) seem to have for many people. The media business is not a great business; VIAC and DISC were mediocre stocks at best for a very long time. I could understand if someone was interested in media in terms of gaming given microtransactions, but as for tranditional media, the streaming growth story of the last decade or so is over.

"KHC 6%"

I'd rather WMT or KR. KHC has had a lot of issues in recent years (share price is still down 56% over the last 5 years) given the way that 3G manages that company. There are some good cpg companies but with TGT, WMT and KR you're really seeing the rise of the store brand. On the last Target conference call: "And in Food & Beverage, our Good & Gather brand now is a $2 billion brand that continues to see very strong growth." So I think there are some good cpg companies (PG, a couple of others), but I'd rather own the shelves that the brands are competing for and in a lot of cases, they're increasingly competing with the store's own brands.

Exactly. It’s hard for someone to comprehend those companies not translating into excellent stock returns, but when a company’s products become that ubiquitous, their growth may be peaking and/or they may be reaching market saturation. It’s also hard to comprehend that things could be radically different in 20 years. In 2002 you might have had an AT&T phone, an IBM computer, GE appliances, shop at Wal Mart every day, drive a Toyota, work at AOL (Time Warner) and are thinking- these would be great companies to make a portfolio. Sure, you would have made some money, and even been ahead for bit, but eventually you would have vastly underperformed the benchmark (see backtest). Holding today’s biggest companies is picking the last cycle’s winners but is a losing strategy - unfortunately you can’t buy past returns.

Thanks for the reply. He didn’t specify that he was chasing top performers though.

Outperformance with individual securities can be continual over an extended period of time. Costco, for example has a 13% CAGR for the past 36 years. UNH runs at a 24% CAGR year over year (30 years and counting).

Using your idea to buy the large companies as a standalone thing carries quite a bit of risk but has also generally outperform (eg MCD, WMT, BMY, KO, HAL, GE, PG, MRK, DIS, TXN, IBM in an equally weighted basket); of course you’re going to capture some duds in there too (I’ve explored this with the Nifty 50 stocks as well, and including bankruptcies you still end up ahead with monthly contributions vs simply buying the index). Commissions wouldn’t have made buying 50 assets at a time viable previously, so the mentioned strategy would never have been executed in practice.

One basket that I actually run which has outperformed for the past 28 years is simply: MSFT, INTU, and WM.

We will see how it does in the future.

Good luck with your investments too!

Pat Gelsinger made $187 million last year so him buying $500,000 worth of shares is meaningless.

They had one of the worst ERs I've ever seen for a "blue chip" company last Quarter and gave investors no warnings ahead of time, like NVDA and WMT did before their ERs. This shows how little management cares about investors.

Intel is a gamble on competitive process nodes and architecture in 2025. They will hemorrhage margins and market share in any segment where efficiency is key (DC, mobile) until then.

Intel looks cheap because you are looking back at a company with a monopoly on the 2 most lucrative x86 product lines, that is not the reality we are in as this earnings report shows. That company is gone, wishful thinking will not resurrect it.

Intel + IFS will be a new company in 2025, model it as such, understand the roadmap and the (huge) execution risk it carries and throw away the history because it's irrelevant.

I would also imagine that they could get kicked out of the DJIA eventually, in favor of AMZN and/or GOOGL.

They had massive growth in the late 90's of 5x over 4 years from '96-'00 that peaked in 2000 and then went down and sideways for 18 years. They were also paying a dividend that steadily increased to 8x what it was back in 2000.

Trading Thesis

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

  • If the price has moved past the entry price, exercise caution. Someone knows something that I don't know.
  • 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

  • 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.

Nice Yes that’s a consideration of mine and the reason I own wmt and tgt.

But I also own Smuckers. I think pricing will stick and we’ll eventually see major supply chain tailwinds which will result in very healthy margins for some of these CPGs.

I'd rather own WMT than either - I'd rather own the shelves than the brands fighting for space. Additionally, if you look at comments from Target, Walmart and Kroger, store brands are doing well as people trade down.

It is kinda interesting WMT and TGT were labeled the recession proof stocks prior to this bear market. When it was actually LULU and ULTA. With their yoga pants and makeup lol.

Wmt is honestly a great play long term, they pivot intelligently.

They are a huge part of a group developing the drone regulations and tech to operate in the USA, because they have a Walmart within a mile and a half or something of 80% of the us population. If they get drone delivery approved, that's game for most grocery places (convenience trump's a lot of things for people, but it also is cheap cuz Walmart, then no more people of Walmart).

They have one of the largest privately owned sat networks in the world, one of the largest and most sophisticated logistics chains.

Idk a lot of people (myself included) mocked Walmart for getting into groceries, but it was such a 4d chess play while we ate the checker chips.

Pretty bullish on Walmart long term. Amazon is strong competition, but Walmart isn't going anywhere anytime soon.. their management is without question on the ball keeping them relevant into the future.

Lots of American companies have factories in China. I believe Tencent was fined for not reporting transactions. And in the greater scheme of things it wasn't a lot of money. WMT probably loses that amount in lawsuits every few weeks.

These scam companies shouldn't even be allowed on the exchanges. The SEC is a fucking joke.

I am stuck in WMT at the recent high. I am just selling covered calls and will exit when it breaks even. Then I’ve made whatever I made on covered calls.

AMZN should buy BBBY. They can fill the stores with their products and they can take market share away from TGT and WMT

$DPZ the big winner of the day. Technical target sub $250 for that one. Need to keep an eye out for earnings though. $WMT down a little on the day after rejecting and $DLTR continuing after breakdown. Solid day for shorts. 👍 https://t.co/fAxIOcPv1u

Feb 9, 2021, $INND ran to .0980!Typical OTC pump & dump. The SS was vastly different then but so is the company today. @inndstock stayed the course and in 3 weeks will be well positioned for the market. The company has products in $WMT and Hy-Vee. This should be a multi $ stock.

Nice dump into close today. For whatever reason the market loves dumping when I go golfing. Built a little bit of exposure throughout the day. Wish I got a better entry on $DLTR but overall a great risk to reward on these with how the charts are set up. https://t.co/zXPR1ffq1W
