  17. Biden administration to announce nearly all Americans will need 3rd COVID booster shot (17/08/2021 - Reddit Stocks)
    https://www.washingtonpost.com/health/2021/08/16/booster-shot-coronavirus/ 195 The Biden administration is planning to announce that most Americans who have received the coronavirus vaccine will need booster shots to combat waning immunity and the highly transmissible delta variant that is sparking a surge in covid-19 cases, according to four people familiar with the decision. Where does this affect the market? Obviously great for Pfizer, Modenra stocks but that ship has sailed for me at this point. I believe COVID will hit ONE more wave till early 2022, and by summer of next year we will be as close as we will ever be to "normalcy" and the reopening trade officially peaking. Don't sense this will cause any major panic in the markets, but something to keep an eye on as the first country to call for 3rd shots.   submitted by   /u/BurnerBurnerBurns20 [link]   [comments]

  20. Be wary of stock discords (29/05/2021 - Reddit Stocks)
    Hello everyone, I am posting here since it was removed from r/investing. I apologize to the mods if this is the right content for this sub. With the popularity of stock trading at an all-time high, I just wanted to give a small PSA and a note about my experience joining stock trading groups on discord. Long story short, I have searched around a few different discords to join a community I could learn more about stocks and trading. I can say without a doubt, that the vast majority of them have the following scheme attached to it: Are pump and dumps where the admin, claiming to be an expert, will post a daily watchlist to encourage people to buy into stocks they already have a position in. Are setup to convince people they need to subscribe to daily video and "secret advice" in order to make a quick buck. Some of the people that run these discords are competent and I can see use manipulation tactics to come off as an authority on subject matters and encourage group think to forward the two objectives above. If you understand and learn the fundamentals of investing, you can tell they lack substance, but people green to investing can easily be enticed. Be careful and research into communities you plan on joining. A few common red flags of toxic stock discords I have found include: Stocks recommendations that constantly change on a daily basis. Cult-like praise for public figures like Elon Musk. Using words and tactics to encourage group-think (Such as "stock fam" and encouraging the posting of daily profits). Due diligence that amounts to "This company looks dope, they have a cool product," or "Their product is the future" without providing any knowledge of fundamentals, such as finance and balance sheet. This may sound silly, but there are people out there who are looking to capitalize hard on this craze. Some will come off as smart and can be charismatic. If you haven't read into the fundamentals of finance and investing, their advice looks very enticing. If you are looking for a community to join, be careful and always scrutinize people's suggestions.   submitted by   /u/donemessedup123 [link]   [comments]

  26. Health insurance stocks are gonna make bank (25/08/2021 - Reddit Stocks)
    This is not financial advice. This is pure speculation. If it’s true that health insurance companies are leaches when it comes to making Heath insurance premiums then they are going to see huge profits coming their way. As of today 52.2% of the US is vaccinated. Thats 157 million people unvaccinated. With CDC full approval of Pfizer vaccine wide spread mandates are about to take place. The pentagon has already moved ahead and given a mandate. So have corporate companies like Disney and Walmart. Most of the mandates have a deadline of about 2 months for employee to be completely vaccinated. Even at the current average of 450,000 vaccinations per day only 27,000,000 will be completely vaccinated by October end. That leaves 130 million unvaccinated people in the US. With the delta variant surge Heath care insurance companies are going to take advantage and increase premiums for all unvaccinated individuals to cover themselves. Delta airlines has already done this. Delta airlines is charging each unvaccinated employee 200 per month health insurance surcharge. Estimating a conservative average of 30 million not being vaccinated for the next 5 years and premiums increased on averages by 50 dollars per month for this unvaccinated population health insurance companies will make 1.5 billion per month in addition to the existing premiums. That’s 18 billion per year and 90 billion for five years.   submitted by   /u/CptIskarJarak [link]   [comments]

  37. CCL breakout is real (21/07/2021 - Reddit Stock Market)
    If you look out the cruise industry pre pandemic you will notice that people were paying for experiences more than they were buying $200 pairs of Nike shoes. Bookings were going up every single year before the pandemic. Now if you look at c c l the bookings for the next cruises have sold out in 6 hours. The CEO Donald Arnold has told people that the bookings exceeded any prior year ever. The CDC will lift restricted sale orders and only put a temporary halt to lifting the restrictions while one judge actually dissented and wanted to lift the restrictions. We are so close. People who are vaccinated will go cruising people who are unvaccinated will also go cruising because they don't care and they think they won't get sick or it will be very mild. If you think that buying the airlines will give you the same response you're wrong. Business travel will always be down by approximately 20% and all Airlines however business travel will have nothing to do with the cruise ships they will benefit even more. Look at what Donald Arnold the CEO said he stated that cruising will come back explosive more than it ever has and that 75% of his ships will be Sailing by the end of this year. He has slimmed down the cruise ships by selling the old and tired ones and profits will be better. He has also purchased extreme luxury cruises that are absolutely stunning and with more millionaires in this world they will be the big Target and they have no problems with going on cruises and spending their money's. They also have natural gas Cruises so they can reduce the carbon footpront and this will also attract those people who are more green friendly. If America adopts with France did, requiring and vaccinations passport, then those people who are unvaccinated will be rushing to get vaccinated like they are doing as we speak in France. That again will cause the CDC to lift all restrictions and off we go. This is a no-brainer and money will rotate into this sector as they pull out from other sectors which they are doing also as we speak.   submitted by   /u/Street_Ad9448 [link]   [comments]
