  2. WTRH Waitr Higher Short Volume Ratio than GME and AMC (13/06/2021 - Reddit Stock Market)
    PRIOR NOTE: THIS IS NOT TO DISTRACT FROM GME OR AMC So, let me start this with I am a smooth-brain, and I have no affiliation with this company besides being a consumer and now owning some shares. I am from Louisiana, the state in which Waitr began. Waitr has been a delivery service since 2015. It has since expanded to 8 states. Now, what makes this so special compared to Uber Eats, Postmates, or Door Dash. Waitr typically caters to the local, small, and medium business while also offering national chains. In 2019, we saw a HUGE drop in share price from a peak of almost $14 to a pathetic $.27. This was due to many different events. Waitr acquiring Bite Squad. Waitr letting off a large amount of employees to cut cost. 35% of it’s restaurants were impacted by new contractual guidelines setup by Waitr (scummy on their part) but many have “since returned”. We also saw many and many businesses close down or shorten hours which did not help its sells. This is especially true with smaller businesses. With the large increase of vaccine production, and state laws trying to get food businesses back to normal, we will see more smaller food businesses open back up or maybe return to normal (longer) operational hours. Things have also been brighter for Waitr in the past month. Apparently they are looking toward a bright future now and have their priorities together. Definitely looks like a potential bounce. Now, you might be asking yourself, “well isn’t this about food delivery? Wouldn’t restaurants allowing seating harm Waitr?” While of course this is a delivery service so in-business seating could be seen as direct competition, this can actually work in favor when it comes to Waitr. Now that businesses will be able to open back up or have longer hours theoretically making them, the food businesses, do better. BUT, people have also gotten used to staying at home and ordering delivery. Many people still work from home and will be until an unforeseeable future. Now here is where things start to sound even better. In March, a few articles came out with the Waitr CEO saying that they were partnering with Flow Payments to hopefully become the first delivery service to deliver products from dispensaries. We all know how much potential is in the weed market. Now, most of the states that Waitr operates in currently still have not legalized marijuana, but in my eyes, that just leaves room for more growth. We see marijuana becoming more and more decriminalized each year. Weed is a growing market with dispensaries opening up all over states where there have been legalizations. This opens the weed market to many new potential consumers— people, who might not feel comfortable going to dispensaries, want a safer product delivered to them in the comfort of their home without having to find the closest plug that they can barely trust, or are just too high to even move their legs. Now here is the JUICY part: It’s SHORTED VOLUME RATIO is 27%. That’s more than GME and AMC, currently. It crashed at COVID. It has since been a target of shorting and the price has only been steadily going up for the past month. Now of course, that ratio is high because there is no where near as much volume in circulation as GME and AMC, but I see that as an advantage for the apes that can get in and HODL as it will be easier to buy the float. THIS IS NOT A DISTRACTION FROM GME OR AMC. I am a strong lover of both of those stocks and have yet to sell any of my positions. I just came across this share information and wanted to spread with you APES as I hopefully am not the only one that sees the potential here, OR, if I’m wrong, will correct me and tell me just how smooth-brained I am. TL;DR Waitr is a food delivery service that typically delivers food from smaller businesses. With COVID numbers decreasing and states opening back up, more of these businesses are opening back up and/or extending hours. They are working to be the first delivery service to deliver weed from dispensaries. It currently has a short volume ratio of 27% (more than AMC and GME) and it is completely under the radar.

  4. Wish, improved delivery.. (16/04/2021 - Reddit Stocks)
    Never used their service, but believe that any online shopping service, it's future depends on it's ability to ship quickly and cheaply. Read and article on NY Times about them setting up agreements with local shops so one can collect their purchase and even immediately buy some of the more popular products from the locations. It is a website that is famous for selling cheap knockoffs, so the quality of their products isn't an issue for me, if you paying a dollar for something that usually costs ten dollars, shouldn't be complaining. In short, what's people opinions on Wish. More specifically hoping to get opinions from people that use it often and if the pick up delivery from local store is something you view as positive and would make it more likely to order again from them. Have no position in wish currently.   submitted by   /u/one8e4 [link]   [comments]

  5. Amazon is shutting down its Prime Now fast delivery app (21/05/2021 - Reddit Stocks)
    https://www.cnbc.com/2021/05/21/amazon-is-shutting-down-its-prime-now-fast-delivery-app.html Amazon said it's discontinue its stand-alone Prime Now app and website this year. The service launched in 2014 as a way for Prime members to get one- or two-hour delivery on a range of goods, from household essentials and books to toys or groceries. Shoppers will still be able to get fast delivery on the Amazon app or site. This is actually a good news. Some of my friends have been doing this before the pandemic and they said amazon is losing money due to this program. So Amazon is continually to focus more on the bottom line, and that consolidation from Sep 2020 until now cause the pe ratio dropped to a reasonable level. Investors should keep holding and consider adding more shares.   submitted by   /u/coolcomfort123 [link]   [comments]

So this appears to be using Cloudflare's Warp privacy service and private DNS, but with some sort of second hop.

I've been riding this stock ever since I bought it a few months ago at 60 cents, it's at $2.50 today and only going further up. These guys are the leaders of drone delivery in North America. As we progress more in the future, drone delivery is going to be more of a viable thing. As of right now it's mainly delivering goods to first nations, cargo ships and other places that are hard to reach. But in the futre, as soon as Amazon even glances at the company it will rocket. I'm almost certain a big company like Amazon will pick them up and once that happens, it's going to explode.

  43. How are you investing in industrial automation (14/02/2021 - Reddit Stocks)
    So this is an industry I'm pretty excited about. Besides the obvious long-term consequences of automations, I feel that a critical element to this upcoming stimulus and infrastructure bill needs to focus on the long-term, meaningful, & sustainable employment sought Powell and the Reserve. In many ways, the environmental & digital transformations are a subset of the 4th industrial revolution. It follows, then, that highly skilled labor & training will be in high demand during this era of economics that actively seeks and rewards structural changes. The US has a skill gap in manufacturing and it really hamper small to medium sized manufacturers. I've experienced it myself and eventually moved to the software industry. That being said, I'm still excited for the industry. I really see a bright future for a lot of the following: - Materials science and energy management - Urban design - Robotic Process Automation - Robotics orchestration - Research into data processing (influencing medical or alternative energy markets) ​ At the moment, my current investments are as broad as I can make them, because I feel that these types companies will reap the benefit of these industrial acceleration changes.

  45. I’d buy Royal Mail shares for a Stocks and Shares ISA (17/05/2021 - The Motley Fool UK)
    The performance of Royal Mail (LSE: RMG) shares over the past 12 months has been outstanding. The stock has risen in value by nearly 200% since the middle of May last year. This makes it one of the best-performing stocks in the FTSE All-Share, according to my research.  I think Royal Mail has come into its own over the past year. As the business embarks on its next stage of growth, I’d buy the stock for my Stocks and Shares ISA right now.  The outlook for Royal Mail shares During the pandemic, many businesses have had to make significant changes. Nowhere is this more apparent than at Royal Mail. Last year, the company bought in some of the most significant in its long history.  One of these was the introduction of a 72p parcel pickup service. The firm said it was “one of the biggest changes to the daily delivery since the launch of the post box in 1852.” The impact these changes have had on Royal Mail shares, and the firm’s profits and outlook, have been immense. In a trading update published at the beginning of February, Royal Mail heralded its busiest quarter for parcel deliveries in its history. On its busiest day, the company delivered 11.7m parcels, 32% more than the most active day during the first national lockdown in 2020.  As demand for parcel shipments has exploded, parcel revenues have also increased. For the nine months to the end of December, Royal Mail’s parcel revenues totalled £3.8bn, up 37% year-on-year. This more than offset a 16% decline in letters revenue. Overall, group revenue increased 13.5% year-on-year. Based on this trading, the company now expects to report operating profit “well in excess of £500m” for its current financial year.  Risks and challenges  I don’t think this boom in parcel income will last forever, but I believe Royal Mail will see a lasting impact from the pandemic. The company will be able to use the excess profits to strengthen its balance sheet and invest in the business. It has already been doing the latter to boost parcel sorting volumes. As we’ve seen, this has already had a positive impact on Royal Mail shares.  As the e-commerce market continues to blossom, I think at least some of the growth in parcel revenues will last. As the largest and most recognisable delivery company in the UK, I believe Royal Mail will benefit disproportionately from the booming digital market.  That said, I think it’s unlikely the group will experience uninterrupted growth over the next few years. The firm has always had rocky relations with its workers. Trouble could start brewing any moment. There’s also competition to consider. The group is facing increasing competition from other delivery companies which can pick and choose their markets. This may allow them to offer a better service at a lower cost.  Even after taking these risks and challenges into account, I’d buy Royal Mail shares for my Stocks and Shares ISA today. I think the company’s pandemic profits will provide a boost to the enterprise that could support growth for years.  CEO’s £500,000,000 Stake on Industry’s “Uber” Revolution We think that when a company’s CEO owns 12.1% of its stock, that’s usually a very good sign. But with this opportunity it could get even better. Still only 55 years old, he sees the chance for a new “Uber-style” technology. And this is not a tiny tech startup full of empty promises. This extraordinary company is already one of the largest in its industry. Last year, revenues hit a whopping £1.132 billion. The board recently announced a 10% dividend hike. And it has been a superb Motley Fool income pick for 9 years running! But even so, we believe there could still be huge upside ahead. Clearly, this company’s founder and CEO agrees.

  49. What news aggregators do you use? (03/03/2021 - Reddit Stocks)
    I'd like to know what news aggregators people use to stay up-to-date with the market. I'm less concerned with a service that focuses on providing you news for your portfolio or watchlist and more interested in a service that could inform me about stocks/stories that wouldn't normally be on my radar. I like this service as they list which stocks are being talked about most this week + this month, as well as which stocks are in the news more during those time periods.   submitted by   /u/Currie32 [link]   [comments]
