What happens when a company buys back stock

Reddit Stocks

17/05/2021 - 00:18

Do they just own the stock ? Does the stock get removed from circulation and now the outstanding shares are reduced? If that's the case does the value of the company go down? Price of stock * outstanding shares   submitted by   /u/widdleavi1 [link]   [comments]

  5. How far back is too far back when analyzing stock charts (24/02/2021 - Reddit Stocks)
    Would love a bit of input on how far back is too far back to go when analyzing levels of support and resistance on stock charts. For example if company xyz had levels of support at $10 over 5 years ago but have gone through major company changes in those years should $10 still be expected to act as support? What about 10+ years? Basically at what point does the company chart history no longer matter?   submitted by   /u/FlanaginJones [link]   [comments]

  6. A company's stock price crashing due to speculation/Short and distort (S&D) is GOOD (or have no effect) for that company? (13/04/2021 - Reddit Stocks)
    Wouldn't a company's stock price crashing due to speculation / false news / 'Short and Distort' not affect the company since that pricing is actually not a reflection of reality? Say for example, company 'Awesome Autos' goes public, sells 100 stocks for 100 bucks, so they now raised 10,000 bucks. Yay! Now they use this money on capital to make more awesome autos, and people buy them as usual...etc (no significant change). Then 'Crappy Car Company' and their friends shit on this new competitor and spread false news etc. (not based on reality), so the stock market investors loses confidence in the stock and 'Awesome Autos' stock crash to say 20 bucks. 'Awesome Autos' already got the 10,000 so they don't care? Maybe even can even pay less to buy back their own stocks to own back their own company for cheaper? (and profit? free money?).   submitted by   /u/GordoBlue [link]   [comments]

  7. Just because some stocks took a dip doesn't mean that they are undervalued (09/03/2021 - Reddit Stock Market)
    In some cases like Sony or Blizzard it made the stocks good buys that you could comfortably keep as blue chippers to rise in the future since they are priced right. In other cases like Qualcomm and AMD I believe it made them great buys since they are severely undervalued but you have to watch out not every company that dipped is a must buy. Take Tesla for example that lost more than 36% of value in just a month when it was at 880 or Square that lost 27% since last month and is now at 201. Considering their financials it still feels like they might keep dipping because you are buying their financials not just the company. If Tesla has a P/E ratio of over 800 with 0.63 EPS and only 31 Billion in revenue that doesn't scream like a 1000$ stock more so 250-300 so watch out when just looking at pricing history and making a buying decision purely based on that.   submitted by   /u/Krios625 [link]   [comments]

  8. Trading simulator? (17/05/2021 - Reddit Stocks)
    I’m looking for a good simulator that allows me to replay the stocks for that day and also simulate buys and sells. I’ve used think or swim for this the problem is they don’t let you do that days stocks you have to wait 5 or 6 trading days before you can go back and replay that particular day. I like it I just don’t want to wait a week to be able to replay my watchlist. Trading view - I’ve used this which lets me replay for same day but it doesn’t simulate buys and sells. I’m just trying to find something that will allow me to do same day replay WITH buys and sells. Any suggestions?   submitted by   /u/camerontbelt [link]   [comments]

  10. Who buys soon to expire options? (25/02/2021 - Reddit Stocks)
    So, I have been researching how stocks and options work for the last year or so, then got pulled into the GME frenzy (got lucky and secured a small profit) and am wanting to learn more. I have been watching various videos on how gambling options work, yet can't find an answer to the question: Who buys soon to expire options? Everything I read says that 99%, you shouldn't exercise you options. But then, who does? Say I have an option ITM, it has a day to expire, so there is little to no extrinsic value. The stock is at 6, my strike is at 5, so I could profit $100 if executed. Therefore, the value of the of the option would be ~$100. But, I don't want to execute because I don't have $500 to cover the exercise the options, so I choose to sell it. Well, when I sell it, who the hell is buying that option at $100? If it is bought at $100 and then exercised, then the profit essentially becomes $0. Do the MM buy it back and get those few cents of profit (that I am assuming exist) between the option value/power and sell price? That's an awful lot of capital needed for such a small gain... Also, no one is obligated to buy soon-to-expire calls, so, even if I have very profitable calls that are about to expire, and no one buys them, am I just shit out of luck? This has been driving me nuts lately and I haven't been able to find an answer.   submitted by   /u/felixfarraday [link]   [comments]

  12. GOGO coming out of a slump? (09/06/2021 - Reddit Stocks)
    GOGO has been steadily running up the 8 period moving average for over a month, made new highs today and closed at a new new high since Feb. Chart looks good, company is doing better, cleaned up its balance sheet and they forecast back to being profitable by the end of the year. Every day for a week now, shorts have come in to knock the stock back down around 3:15 but it has been rallying back every day. It also has a 30% short interest, but due to its market cap they don't talk about it on wsb. A few percent higher and all the shorts will be underwater on a company that isn't going bankrupt! There have been a few days of higher volume help drive it up, but nothing like the other short interest stocks, many of which have terrible fundamentals comparatively. Anywho, didn't know it anyone else knew much more about the company.   submitted by   /u/Are_We_Having_Fun_ [link]   [comments]

  13. I’m almost embarrassed to ask this, but... (04/05/2021 - Reddit Stocks)
    If you consistently buy a stock when it dips, and then sell it with profit and repeating that with the same stock throughout a steady increase, would you make more than if you just held? Considering each time one buys back in, they are paying a higher price. For example, let’s say you kept going in and out of one position as shown—- Buy: 100 shares at $10 Sell: 100 shares at $15 Buy: 100 shares at $12 Sell: 100 shares at $16 Buy: 100 shares at $15 Sell: 100 shares at $20 Or is it better to just hold through the dips? It seems like it would be a similar profit either way, but am I missing something?   submitted by   /u/ADHDoll [link]   [comments]

  18. Am I misunderstanding a margin account or am I right to want to switch back to a cash account? (23/02/2021 - Reddit Stocks)
    I switched to a margin account with Ameritrade because I thought the extra buying power would be nice in those moments when it'd be worthwhile (e.g., I am very confident about a stock increasing in value). If that's how it works, I would be happy to have a margin account. However, it seems that I have to use margin for every stock purchase even when I have cash in my account? That seems like bullshit to me. The last thing I want to do is use margin to buy small positions here and there and then pay interest on those "loans" when I have the cash to make the buys sitting in my account. This happened yesterday and I just couldn't believe that I "owed" a margin loan despite wanting to use my own money. I've requested to switch back to cash account (no reply from them yet sigh...), but am I understanding this correct? Am I forced to use margin or did I overlook the way to use cash instead of margin?   submitted by   /u/JoshTheBear_ [link]   [comments]

  19. Always take profits (19/02/2021 - Reddit Stock Market)
    I keep getting asked from people onto why am I not holding a certain stock after it reached peak and it dipped? Being the stock could go back up even higher if I just hold. I've learned from many mistakes from stock marketing that, it's always best to take profits. It's better to take profits that you have being the safest price target and take it. Rather losing $-1000 from stocks could have safely taken the +200 then invest again. There no emotions in the stock market. It's about making money and nothing more. The stock does not love you back. Always play it safe and take profits. Unless you are 100% sure that the stock would return back up being there is a catalyst then that is fine.   submitted by   /u/PlasmaHanDoku [link]   [comments]

  20. Word of advice from someone who was like many of you: (05/03/2021 - Reddit Stocks)
    I know it's annoying. Another one of those, "Don't sell, it's going to be okay" posts. I used to check my stock app every minute and sold because I got nervous and uncomfortable. I would see gains that have made insane money disappear and sell off trying to hopefully get back at a lower price. From personal experience, I would encourage many of you to take one hard look at your stock portfolio right now and ask yourself if this is a company you see being able to exist in the long-term future. If the answer is no, you should cut some of your position or get rid of it. If the answer is yes, sit back, maybe liquidate a few shares, but don't get uneasy about it. It's the stock market - you win some, you lose some. If the company you own isn't going through a fundamental change such as a huge decrease in revenue or an SEC investigation, stop being upset. If I never sold a single share of any company from the day I started investing, I would likely be a millionaire right now with an initial investment of $30,000. Don't make the same mistake I did. Buy companies you trust and can reasonably see being a sustainable business and just ride it. More often than not, you're going to end up green. From what I see now, there are going to be a ton of opportunities to get in on some stocks soon. You should be putting more attention on what you should buy rather than what you should sell right now.   submitted by   /u/Chromewave9 [link]   [comments]

  29. Is Target (TGT) still a good buy at $230? (10/06/2021 - Reddit Stocks)
    So, I made a bit mistake of selling TGT a while back. I bought a few shares back when they had the earnings report where they announced that they would put billions more in investments into the company, and the stock tanked. I bought around $170, but sold at $190. The question is, is TGT still a good growth stock even at its current price? $114B market cap seems a bit high for the fundamentals unless if I’m missing something? Quite a competitive sector, and WMT already seem to have quite a stronghold there?   submitted by   /u/maximalsimplicity [link]   [comments]

  38. Looking at Timing of Stock Investments (28/03/2021 - Reddit Stocks)
    There are two ways thrive in stock markets. One is to pick right stocks. Another is to time one's investments right. Stock picking is somewhat simple to measure. You just compare your performance with an index of your choice. Beating index is good, losing to index not so. But how can you measure your timing? Here's my attempt to visualize my timing success. I have sliced my stock history to half-year pieces and drawn how much and how profitably I have invested in each period. The farther back in time the investment goes, the bigger the profit bars should grow. Well, not quite in my case. This chart is not a clean picture of timing alone. 2010 - 2015 I did some pretty unfortunate stock picks and it shows here. Some periods have not broken even. Still, the chart has a story to tell. 2009 was a sweet time to enter market. 2020 looks good too. I think market timing is a way of value investing for a person with my mental capacity. I have no skill or patience to calculate intrinsic values of companies. I really don't think I can judge a company better than all the wise people playing the same game. As the picture shows, my stock picks can be horrific. However, I can recognize market crash when one comes. It is kind of easy - indexes go down 30% or more. In the bottom of the crash it seems that almost any stock is a winner. I don't even need to hit the lowest spot of the crash. The time window for good buys is wide. This is borrowing a page from Benjamin Graham. This is exploiting Mr. Market in his most depressed mood.   submitted by   /u/helanti [link]   [comments]

  40. Yet another wash sale question (19/04/2021 - Reddit Stocks)
    If I completely close out of a position that triggered a wash sale and never buy back in, will I be able to deduct the originally disallowed loss from the current tax year? Example scenario: Buy 100 XYZ @ $100 on 3/1 Sell 100 XYZ @ $80 on 3/15 Buy 100 XYZ @ $70 on 3/20 Sell 100 XYZ @ $90 on 3/25 Buy 100 XYZ @ $100 on 3/26 Sell 100 XYZ @ $80 on 3/31 May have gone too crazy with the buys / sells but I’ve bought back in to one stock quite a few times and have mostly sold at a loss. I’ll be closing out of the position and won’t touch it for at least 30 days. Will I be able to deduct my cumulative losses during the current tax year or do those losses still get pushed to the subsequent year despite completely closing out of the position?   submitted by   /u/bluelip12 [link]   [comments]

  42. Best advice I gave myself for reds days. (29/03/2021 - Reddit Stocks)
    Please keep in mind that for this advice to work you need 3 things. You need money. You need to have done your DD Since you did your DD you believe in the company. Having done step 2 and having money (step 1) and there hasn't been a change in the company and thus you still believe I'm it (step 3). If the stock is red then most likely it's just going through the motions like all stocks do that's when I buy at least 1 share of any 1 of my holdings. Now I did say at least 1. I try to buy a few. Today I picked up a couple of my favorite cannabis stock. If all my stocks are red again I'll buy another. Some of my shares are work pennies so I'll buy those if I don't have much money. This way when the stock bounces back I make a profit quicker. TLDR: DCA down.   submitted by   /u/ragstorichespodcast [link]   [comments]

  47. XPENG set to run? (23/02/2021 - Reddit Stocks)
    XPENG has seen a high of $74.49 after a steep run up on 24 November. Since then it’s now back down to $38 - a 50% drop. The company has had no bad news. The stock has a price target of $54. XPENG stock has been hammered down lately due to the lock up period which expires tomorrow. Earnings is on 8 March. $38 seems like an excellent buying opportunity to me. I’ll be adding shares tomorrow near market close. Looks like an easy 10-20% gain in a matter of days/weeks. LI also looks like a great buy. Quarterly revenue has been seeing consistent growth and earnings is finally reaching break even. Li has also invested a lot of their assets back into the company and their total assets has seen a healthy growth within the last year. These 2 seemed bound for a pullback after their highs in November but now it seems they are oversold. Are these on anyone else’s watch list ? Anything I should be weary of?   submitted by   /u/theepicone111 [link]   [comments]

  49. Can someone explain why selling and buying a stock/asset back at a lower cost is a stupid idea when it dips? (07/05/2021 - Reddit Stocks)
    So yes I am a new investor and I’m trying to understand this. Let’s say for example Stock X is $10. It has a good run up to $70 over a course of 2 months and because of its high run up and RSI, you know that there will be a pull back. Let’s say now you invested 100k. This 100k has essentially 7x to 700k, but since you did not sell it at $70, it then pulled all the way back to $30 so you now have 300k. You've essentially lost out of 400k profit before tax is considered. Why do people say it’s stupid to sell it just to rebuy it back? If you knew there would be a pull back due to the RSI, sell at $70, then rebuy the dip when it’s back at $30? Sure you pay short term capital gains but you’ve now doubled your position at the same price, assuming you reinstate all that money back into that stock. You can now increase your position, but just pay a higher average cost of $30 rather than at $10. What am I not understanding for those that hold when you know the RSI will indicate a strong dip? An example of this would be Fubo TV, DDD, or STEM.   submitted by   /u/ricestocks [link]   [comments]
