  9. Right Now It's All About Figuring Out What the Next Cookie Is. EcoNOMNOMics Theory. (12/02/2021 - Reddit Stocks)
    I have a theory about what is going on in the market. As a result of uncertain financial conditions during 2020 and the Gamestop event in 2021 there has been an explosion of people interested in investing in stocks. One metric to measure this is by looking at subscribers to the investing subs on Reddit. WSB (~800K Jan 2020 to ~8.8M Feb 2021): https://subredditstats.com/r/wallstreetbets, Stocks: (~473K Jan 2020 to ~2.17M Feb 2021) https://subredditstats.com/r/stocks, Investing (~880K Jan 2020 to ~1.6M Feb 2021) https://subredditstats.com/r/investing, Penny Stocks (~130K Jan 2020 to ~1.1M Feb 2021) https://subredditstats.com/r/pennystocks Day Trading (~45K Jan 2020 to ~370K Feb 2021) https://subredditstats.com/r/daytrading ... The list goes on and on. You get the picture. In addition, with a lot of people still working from home, stimulus checks, entertainment venues (and restaurants and bars) being closed and the K-shaped recovery we have a lot of wealthier people stuck at home during the day who have extra cash. In essence, there are a lot of new investors with time, money and access to a personal computer. There have been a lot of articles about the K-shaped recovery: https://www.forbes.com/sites/chuckjones/2020/10/24/three-charts-show-a-k-shaped-recovery/?sh=3ebea945305f, https://www.bloomberg.com/news/articles/2020-12-10/how-a-k-shaped-recovery-is-widening-u-s-inequality-quicktake etc. My theory, and here is where it is just a theory, is that there are a lot of new investors who do not have the trading experience or fundamental analysis skills to judge valuation of a company and its stock price, essentially whether a company is fundamentally strong or not*. Thus, you are seeing these massive runups for stocks beyond GME where fundamental analysis has been thrown out the window. Balance sheets, whether company actually sells something, cash flow, strength of the management, do not really matter because if you heard about it on twitter it could be a good buy. Essentially any stock that gets hyped is becoming a meme stock. I’m calling this EcoNOMNOMics theory**. Basically, when you have a lot of inexperienced investors they are essentially like children who will NOM on anything sweet given to them regardless of the fundamental value of the thing they are eating (nutrients, macros, is this actually good for me? Etc.). They experience the sugar high of seeing the stock shoot through the moon until it crashes like blood sugar but then they still want more so its on to the next stock. Right now, it’s all about figuring out what the next cookie is. *You might argue that the true valuation of a company is going to be different depending on how you measure it...is it assets and liabilities balance, revenue, strength of the product etc. Some people believe the value of a stock is determined solely by supply and demand (i.e. its worth that much if people are willing to pay that much). I realize this is tricky territory. **These are just my thoughts. I don’t claim to think this is 100% right. I’ve just been thinking about it a lot.

  21. The End of Stimulus (05/03/2021 - Reddit Stock Market)
    I just wanted to provide some perspective on what’s happening here. If you go back to March of 2020 you see one of the largest selloffs in history, then you see the now famous “V-Shaped Recovery.” Let’s take a look at what fueled that “Recovery”: A 3 Trillion Dollar Stimulus Package Three trillion dollars is crazy, it’s 3,000 BILLION dollars. So if you made $1,000,000 a year it would take you three million years to earn three trillion dollars. This is an insane amount of money and we’re about to do it again in the form of a 1.9 trillion dollar package. That’s an unprecedented amount of liquidity added to the economy in just one year. The Fed lowering rates to 0% The Fed was raising rates before COVID because the economy was looking healthy, suddenly everything looked very unhealthy and the Fed dropped the prime rate to 0%. This means it’s basically free to borrow money which kept people borrowing in a really uncertain time. This was great in an environment when we needed to keep people spending like we did over the pandemic. So, what changed? All this extra liquidity and free money is starting to rear its ugly head. People are losing confidence in the future value of the US dollar and the main indication of this is the yield on the 10-Year Treasury Yield. It’s fine if the yield grows slowly, that’s actually a sign that the recovery is working but what’s happening is that the yield is SPIKING and that’s worrisome for investors. It means that bond buyers are anticipating rapid inflation which is obviously bad for the economy. Why does this matter? Remember the V-Shaped Recovery? That was based on extra liquidity provided by the legislature AND low interest rates. However, in a case where inflation is out of control, the Fed has a decision to make; either let the dollar lose value rapidly causing prices to increase across the board or raise rates and stall the recovery. Mind you there is no real good decision for Jerome Powell here. He needs to decide whether to let all the cash sitting in bank accounts lose value or stop the economic recovery. So far he’s signaling that he will wait until the dollar hits 2% before he does anything. I’m not advising you to do anything, I’m just trying to shed light on why markets are freaking out.   submitted by   /u/MiloGoesToTheFatFarm [link]   [comments]

  23. Lynch was so spot on with “buy what you know” (06/09/2021 - Reddit Stocks)
    A little backstory. I’m a software engineer. Been working professionally for six years. Over the weekend I was watching some Peter Lynch videos and heard him tell the story about buying what you know. Such simple advice, but it’s powerful. I’m going to start buy more stocks on companies who tools I use. Crazy to think of the gains if I bought in with cloudflare, mongodb, attlassian, etc. I know it’s super simple advice, but it’s shaped up how I’m looking at stocks going forward.   submitted by   /u/_hiddenscout [link]   [comments]

  24. Treasury Yield at 1.48(?) and why that's important? (25/02/2021 - Reddit Stocks)
    So, I'm new to this like most people, right? Got in at December, I've had insane growths through luck but I have an abhorrent lack of fundamentals. Just recently saw this thing about the treasury yield and why it's high, how that's important, and how that can influence the market and I don't think I"m able to relate everything. So, what I've gotten is that the yield will rise when inflation or recovery occurs. In today's situation, inflation and recovery are both on the table which is why it's being driven up so high atm. I don't understand why that's negative for the stock market and growth stocks in particular. Wouldn't it be better to invest in stocks when there's inflation and wouldn't it be better for stocks if there was a higher rate of economic recovery?   submitted by   /u/The_Start_Line [link]   [comments]

  25. Deciding if I should rotate from growth to value stocks now (14/03/2021 - Reddit Stock Market)
    I'm seeing a lot of articles saying to sell off my tech and growth stocks since they're too expensive and to go all in on value and recovery stocks instead. About 35% of my portfolio is in QQQ and I'm wondering if it would be a good idea to swap it out for small cap value (VBR). I personally believe tech will continue to become dominant over the next few years, but almost every analyst I hear about says that investments in tech will instead have poor returns for a very long time. I'm still young and have plenty of time to wait for my investments to grow, but I do prefer to not see long stretches of underperformance. Any thoughts on swapping to value and recovery stocks now?   submitted by   /u/myabilitytowrite [link]   [comments]

  32. Is this a millennial market? Do you also notice extreme volatility never seen before even in the 90s? Has it shaped your trades? How? (29/08/2021 - Reddit Stocks)
    This market more than ever is irrational. I have been trading since late 1994 and have been thru the dot com crash.. Greenspan's "Irrational Exuberance", 9/11 when the market was shut down for days, 2008 crash and last year's covid.. I swear I have never seen anything even close to this! Back in the late 90s and even when the Nasdaq crashed in March of 2000, you would have a handful of stocks down 10-20% in a single day. You may have a handful of stocks with volume over 10 million.. Check the history! Now you have stocks up 200% and down the next day 50% I cant mention the ticker here or I will get banned. But there are many stocks that go down 15-20% on nothing! SLQT went down 50% on a slight miss Thursday! I feel now more than ever there are gamblers everywhere. Everyone piles on on positive or negative news quickly...because of social media.. We know..... So my question is, has it changed the way you trade/invest and how? For myself I am quickly adapting........ I am actually trading more momentum stocks than I ever traded before.. Companies with horrible financials... which is hard for me, but we have to adapt or get killed on SLQT?? Please share ideas, I am trying to adapt as quickly as possible too!   submitted by   /u/UltimateTraders [link]   [comments]

  38. What are your value short term picks to buy when the selloff stops? (06/03/2021 - Reddit Stocks)
    I have been researching many stocks that took a big beating trying to pick my next buys to ride the wave after the market stops freefalling. Unfortunately money is limited and I don't want to get locked up in bad value picks that stay stagnant. I am not speaking of meme stocks either. I feel there are some good recovery plays in the travel and fuel industry. I believe there would be value in more traditional stock rather than high tech ones given the absurdly abstract valuations these days. Companies that have an established product. I am watching oxy, trvg, amd and tsm (long term hold on this one). I am looking to reap some short term gains to divert into long term value picks.

  46. Most efficient way of evaluating market sentiment ? NoCharts (19/05/2021 - Reddit Stock Market)
    Hello fellas, I am intrigued on how the most efficient way of evaluating market sentiment would be WITHOUT reading charts; As I know charts could only tell you so much. However , sentiment will tell much more. I am tired of reading charts and making an educated hypothesis on where it shall go, usually it goes as planned or remains stagnant due to no sentiment towards the stock. So I was wondering , what services do you guys use(if any) to find what people are interested in ? I have been researching COVID recovery stocks as I saw a message that NYC shall be reopening tomorrow , but COVID recovery stocks are practically common sense at this point. Thank you for any suggestions .   submitted by   /u/052000Pw [link]   [comments]
