22/07/2021 - 02:17

    What are some stocks that stand to benefit from Biden's $3-4T infrastructure plan? Please provide your rationale on why/how the stock(s) will gain value due to the infrastructure plan. What is the likelihood that politics impact whether Biden's plan gets passed? If the plan get trimmed down due to politics and turn out to be smaller in scope than originally anticipated, what industries are likely to be left out? Excerpt below from the AP: The president will announce parts of his “Build Back Better” package Wednesday in Pittsburgh. Sweeping in scope, the ambitious plan aims to make generational investments in infrastructure, revive domestic manufacturing, combat climate change and keep the United States competitive with China, according to the officials. It could include $3 trillion in tax increases.   submitted by   /u/theofficialhung [link]   [comments]

  12. The "crypt" rule is a bit too strict (23/05/2021 - Reddit Stocks)
    Example: Some dude ask if coinbase is a good stock to buy. Even just replying anything with a "mean" keyword instantly gets your post removed. I think being unable to mention anything crypt related when discussing stocks, especially ones like coinbase, is becoming increasingly impossible. Yea sure, i don't want people to start discussing in details every single crypt currency there is, but thinking any discussion related to crypt is completely irrelevant for stocks is delusional. Its like banning ANY posts related to politics. Sure this isn't a politics sub, but if Biden wants to put a corporate tax its obviously revelant to stocks discussion. I'd rather have humans use their judgment and see if a post is relevant to stocks or not, instead of a dumb bot that just removes any posts with the keyword.   submitted by   /u/Floofyboy [link]   [comments]

  41. A gentle reminder to tune out the politics and make your trades based on the reality inside the company. (23/06/2021 - Reddit Stocks)
    The politicization of GME and AMC is reaching nauseating levels. Steve Bannon was on Timcast IRL last night, and he said that it was a bad thing that a guy on SeekingAlpha made a case for selling AMC and disclosed being short AMC. I would certainly hope that the guy who thought the stock was going go down acted as such. If you want to know what someone thinks is going to happen, don't ask him what's going to happen; ask what's in his portfolio. This business about anything and everything having to fit on one side of an imaginary dichotomy is making people do stupid things, and many are going to lose their asses over it. Hell, even the hedge fund boogeyman is divided on this. Do you think there are no hedge funds that are long GME and AMC? Institutions are on both sides of every trade.   submitted by   /u/thisistheperfectname [link]   [comments]
