    I might sound like a total idiot but.. lets say you buy 1 share for 100$ and it‘s price drops by 25%, would the new ‚starting point‘ be 75$ and would you need a much higher rise in stock value (+33%) to recover from that loss? Or is it just that 1 share always equals 1 share lol. I‘m just very confused rn sorry   submitted by   /u/Enzo12_ [link]   [comments]

  2. GE Reverse Stock Split Announced (10/03/2021 - Reddit Stocks)
    https://finance.yahoo.com/m/06d284f4-0285-32b6-a0d7-504f47d325e8/ge-stock-turns-lower-after.html ​ What are investors in GE thinking of doing? This is usually not a good signal for a stock's health. I have many shares and had been planning to exit at any time north of $14, but had likely been looking to hold throughout the year given consumer confidence and the increase in share price that came with it. Price targets range into the mid- to high-teens. I'm guessing it'll be a down day but that the price will recover over the next couple of weeks, and then I'll probably cut ties. I'm just curious what others' plans are.   submitted by   /u/wearebc [link]   [comments]

  3. Just trying to learn how calls work.. (10/03/2021 - Reddit Stock Market)
    Just been reading into it recently, wanting to understand them before I do anything stupid. Basically what I understand, by way of example (Again, I'm citing what I understand, and am asking for help where I'm wrong: James buys a call for 100 XYZ stock @ $10 each for $1k, and he sets the strike price to $20/share by next month. Three potential situations can follow: The stock price goes up to $20 each in just 3 days; James exercises the call out of fear it won't get any higher and drop to below $10, and receives 100 XYZ stock, now worth double his investment, for half the price. James wins. The stock price goes up to $25/share. James exercises, and gets $15/share extra value, receiving 100 XYZ worth 2500 for a $10/share price. The stock price reaches only $18/share (or dips to $5/share) before the expiration date, and since in either case the strike price is not reached, the option expires worthless. James has lost $1k, and receives no stock. Or does it go like this? XYZ is worth $10. James makes a call, buying the right to 100 XYZ at the assumption they will reach $20 by expiration. He pays $2k for this call. This has two possible outcomes: The price goes up to $25+/share, into the money. James exercises, and receives 100 shares for the $20 price tag, but receives an extra $5+/share value. The price does not meet the $20/share strike price. James loses the $2k and receives no stock. If one or neither of these is correct, I'd really appreciate guidance. Thank you!!   submitted by   /u/ninthtale [link]   [comments]

  4. ABNB how long would it take for it to catch its share price (20/02/2021 - Reddit Stocks)
    Hi guys, new investor here, I read the other posts on this subreddit about ABNB and tried to do my own DD the best I could but I obviously lack experience. I would like to determine the time it would take for a business like ABNB to 1) recover from covid 19 losses if we consider people should probably be able to travel again in 2022 like they used to pre-covid 2) make proper earnings out of it and start catching their expansive current share price. How would you, long time investors, handle those worries ? Obviously my goal here is to determine if jumping in now would be considered reckless, even if I aim to hold for 5+ years. I am quite confident in their business model but the current fundamentals tell me I might make a long-term mistake. I feel like this could be the same trap Airlines stocks are. Thanks for your insight !   submitted by   /u/orgabool [link]   [comments]

  5. ZKIN 15m Outlook (20/05/2021 - Reddit Stock Market)
    Since the last outlook the price of ZKIN has dropped by 2% as it's being traded for $4.34 per share. On the hourly outlook we have spotted a falling wedge pattern which had bias to break to the upside. This pattern has broke to the upside yes, but the gains were pretty mediocre as they were capped at $4.60 per share. The minor pivot resistance has been tested 4 times in a row with a series of unsuccessful tests which eventually led to a breakdown to good known support at $4.30. The price action seems to be creating a rounded top pattern, which has bias to break to the downside, below $4.30. Currently we are seeing that the price is testing the support at $4.30 and has created a new lower low, following the pivot low at $4.34 by a low at $4.30. What are indicators suggesting, will the price recover or fall below $4.30? A break below $4.30 will surely not be ideal as there is little support below it and could lead to some serious losses. RSI has failed to break above 60 several this. This failed break above 60 is connected with price action being unable to break above $4.60. MACD wave indicator is currently suggesting that a selling wave is present and the bearish volume is increasing. Overall trend on this short time frame is a strong downtrend. A break below $4.30 will lead to extended losses to $4.20.   submitted by   /u/imphare [link]   [comments]

  6. 3 AIM stocks with massive potential (22/05/2021 - The Motley Fool UK)
    I’m always on the hunt for promising small-cap companies that have the potential to grow at a much faster clip than your typical FTSE blue-chip. Should everything go to plan, their share prices can eventually rocket. With this in mind, here are three AIM stocks are grabbing my attention.  Fonix Mobile Mobile payments and messaging firm Fonix Mobile (LSE:FNX) enables businesses from the media, charity, digital services and gaming sectors to charge users’ mobile bills. An example would when people donate to the BBC’s Children in Need campaign. Right now, trading is good. Revenue and gross profit rose by 25% and 22% respectively over the second half of 2020. A pipeline of clients means more growth is expected in 2021. In addition to being in a rapidly expanding area, Fonix also boasts staggeringly high returns on capital employed (ROCE). Companies that can do this consistently tend to create huge value for shareholders. No wonder star fund managers like Terry Smith and Nick Train pay so much attention to this metric.  Naturally, investors need to be cautious. Fonix only arrived on the market last October so it’s still early days. I also question just how much of an ‘economic moat’ it really possesses. Still, the performance of the share price over the last year (+82%) does suggest investors are willing to give management the benefit of the doubt, for now. tinyBuild US-based video games company tinyBuild (LSE: TBLD) is another new AIM stock that could do well for investors over time. Its mission is to create long-term partnerships with developers and monetise popular titles across different forms of media. The puzzle game Hello Neighbour is one example of this. Gaming remains a hot sector that should continue growing rapidly for the foreseeable future. Like all stocks however, there can be no guarantees tinyBuild will perform. Its shares also trade at 49 times forecast earnings. That kind of valuation will only seem reasonable to the most optimistic market participants. A relatively small ‘free float’ (the number of shares available for investors to buy in the market) also implies the price may be volatile going forward. On a positive note, tinyBuild’s founders still have big holdings, which should mean their interests are aligned with those of their investors.  The firm also boasts a strong balance sheet — one of the things I look for when buying small-cap shares. Ilika Ilika (LSE: IKA) is a final AIM stock I think has big potential. It’s focused on developing solid state batteries for applications such as the Internet of Things and electric vehicles. These have a number of benefits over traditional lithium-ion batteries, such as faster charging, longer life and non-flammability. As such, mass adoption seems to be a case of ‘when’ rather than ‘if’. Notwithstanding this, Ilika is still loss-making. This probably makes it only suitable for risk-tolerant investors. Investors must also reflect on how well the shares have performed over the last year (+500%!) and whether a lot of hope is priced in. Should markets shift into reverse gear as a result of ongoing concerns over inflation, blue sky stocks like Ilika could be hit harder than most. Then again, this might be the perfect time to begin building a position if buyers are content to be patient for the spoils that could lie ahead. The high-calibre small-cap stock flying under the City’s radar Adventurous investors like you won’t want to miss out on what could be a truly astonishing opportunity… You see, over the past three years, this AIM-listed company has been quietly powering ahead… rewarding its shareholders with generous share price growth thanks to a carefully orchestrated ‘buy and build’ strategy.

  7. The Argo Blockchain (ARB) share price has halved. Can it recover? (21/05/2021 - The Motley Fool UK)
    Back in February, shares in Argo Blockchain (LSE: ARB) were changing hands at over 280p. The Argo Blockchain share price is less than half of that now. Yet it still shows growth in excess of 2,600% over the last year. I’ve been considering whether the Argo Blockchain share price could reach its February highs again and looking at two reasons it might (plus a couple of less positive factors). Bull factor 1: crypto prices A key driver for the Argo share price has been cryptocurrency prices. Argo, as a Bitcoin owner, has seen its share price gyrate alongside the cryptocurrency. With key influencer Elon Musk sending out seemingly conflicting messages on crypto lately, Bitcoin prices have moved around sharply. That’s a continuing risk for Argo. If crypto falls, its share price could follow. But the flipside also holds. If Bitcoin prices recover, the Argo Blockchain share price could recover too — maybe even back to February prices, or beyond. Bull factor 2: strong management Argo’s current management is ambitious about growing the company. That has been shown this month, with two Canadian properties added to its portfolio.  A plan to build a new data centre in Texas also shows management foresight. The lean environmental footprint could help reduce costs. It could also help insulate the company from criticism about the heavy energy consumption of crypto mining, although I think that critique extends far beyond any one miner. Unusually, management provides shareholders with straightforward monthly updates. This openness has helped highlight the speed and thoughtfulness of the current executive team. That could help boost the share price in future. Bear factor 1: valuation concerns Of course, there are downsides too. What are investor in Argo paying for? The company has a market cap of £487m. But at the end of April, it only held 936 Bitcoin or equivalent. At today’s valuation, that’s worth under £30m. What accounts for the rest of the market cap? The balance sheet doesn’t explain the gap. The company ended last year with total debt of £7.4m. The data centre business and management may merit some premium. But can they justify a valuation close to half a billion pounds? I don’t see the financial logic in such a price so I worry that the share price could be vulnerable. Bear factor 2: speculation A share price that increased over 2,600% in a year sounds incredible. But such an astounding performance can reflect a speculative frenzy. It may well not just be about investors valuing a company on its underlying performance. I do think the business is performing well. Its triple-digit revenue growth impresses me. But I think the Argo Blockchain share price has been driven up partly by speculation. That can work both ways – while it could push the share price up to its former highs again, it could also bring it crashing down. The strong business performance may not offer enough support against determined sellers. As an investor, I prefer to stay away from shares that are subject to heavy speculation. Instead I would rather focus on shares where I see strong business prospects and an attractive entry level. So while I do think the Argo Blockchain share price could recover, I also reckon it could crash further, even after the recent fall. I won’t be touching it.

  9. Read this if you feel stressed (03/03/2021 - Reddit Stocks)
    I found a good way to make yourself feel better about the stocks you invested in. Basically if you are confident that the stocks you invested in will re test their highs in the last 2/3 months, you can work out the % increase you will make per stock. Do this for each stock in your portfolio and then find the mean. This will the average % gain in your portfolio if the market does recover and re test highs. To find the % increase you should do (peak price - price you bought at / price you bought at) x 100. After doing this I felt a bit better bc I am confident that my investments will hit their highs and beyond when markets recover again (no idea when). I did this and found the mean to be 63.5% gain, as I’ve been buying like crazy during the dips. Try it for yourself as it is very quick. Remember time in the market beats timing in the market. Hope this helps anyone who feels stressed.   submitted by   /u/KN-student [link]   [comments]

  12. Why is a share price on the market higher than value of the company portion it represents? (03/04/2021 - Reddit Stocks)
    In a very basic sense, stock is purchased for the ownership of a company. It’s price grows on the market following supply and demand, and as such the price of a single share may rise as the value of a company rises and more people want to buy that share than those willing to sell. But why is the portion of a company granted by that share worth less than what it’s paid for? Suppose a company has a book value of $180M and has 100M shares outstanding on the market for $5. Its market cap, which encompasses its intangibles and growth potential is nearly 3x as much as its book value, signaling the market believes the company is and will continue doing well (in theory). Now since a share indicates owning a portion of the company, a single share in this company is worth 0.00000001%, or if the company liquidated its assets today, $1.8; so why would somebody want to buy a share of a company for more than what that share is worth? Is the delta between its intrinsic value and the market value the “mark up” for the current share holder to earn for giving their position away? This brings up the question, if you exclude capital appreciation from the equation, if the share price on the market is more than the intrinsic value it losses at purchase, the hope would be that over time the value of the company grows such that the shares intrinsic value eventually exceeds what you paid for it, right?   submitted by   /u/mahtats [link]   [comments]

  15. Is there a way to do a limit sell but ONLY on the way down? (19/05/2021 - Reddit Stocks)
    Let's say I want to invest $100 in a share of a security and I think may rise to, say, 100% of its current value. I would then set a limit sell order at $200 so that when the price crosses $200/share it would trigger a sale. What if I want another, smaller limit sale as a safety at 50% but ONLY once it crosses the price and falls under it. For example, I purchase a security for $100 and I set a limit sell if the price dips below $150 but NOT when it crosses $150 the first time. Is there a way to do this type of limit sell where the price can pass the specified price but will only sell on the way down? Additionally, can I do this at the same time I have another limit sell for 100%, or 200/share? Thank you!   submitted by   /u/Reddspez [link]   [comments]

  16. $PENN has done +1800% in the last 12 months with a -32% revenue decline year-over-year. How is that 18x share price justified? (21/03/2021 - Reddit Stocks)
    From 2018 to 2019 $PENN had a +47% increase in revenue year-over-year and the share price grew with +38%. From 2019 to 2020, revenue declined to -32% year-over-year and the share price grew with +1800%. Revenue for 2019 was $5.3B. Revenue for 2020 was $3.5B. Is this the new normal? +10 years of growth is already priced in the share price today? Are we buying stocks today based on how they will perform in 2030? Are we today already basing their stock price on the 2031 Q3 Earnings Report? 2032 Q1? This is also just one example of how overvalued some stocks are today. Can anybody make some sense of this?

  17. Will tech recover? Or should I diversify now? (25/02/2021 - Reddit Stocks)

Is the tech industry going to recover? Or was it only up so high because of covid? In 10-20 years, will this be a good investment? Or should I cut my losses now and go into something more safe like spy and VOO?

  18. Will BT’s share price recover in 2021? (20/05/2021 - The Motley Fool UK)
    BT (LSE: BT.A) shares haven’t performed well in recent years. Its share price has shown signs of life in 2021, rising from 135p to 170p. However, over a five-year timeframe, the stock is still down about 60%. That’s a disappointing result for long-term holders. Can BT’s share price recover in 2021? Let’s take a look at the outlook for the FTSE 100 telecommunications stock. BT shares: can they bounce back? Looking at BT today, I’m cautiously optimistic on the outlook for the share price. There are several reasons why. The first is that management appears to be relatively confident about the future. In its full-year results for the year ended 31 March, BT advised that a number of uncertainties (the Wholesale Fixed Telecoms Market Review, the 5G spectrum auction, its triennial pension valuation, etc) have now been removed. It also said that after a number of years of tough work, it’s now pivoting to “consistent and predictable growth.” Of course, at this stage, there’s no guarantee BT will achieve the growth it’s talking about. The optimism from management is encouraging, nevertheless. Secondly, broker sentiment towards the stock has improved recently. In late March, for example, BofA Global Research upgraded BT shares to ‘buy’ from ‘neutral’, citing the stock’s attractive valuation and expectations for growth. BofA also raised its price target to 200p, from 160p. More recently, on 6 May, Barclays raised its price target to 190p, from 170p. Zooming in on BT’s valuation, it’s certainly low. Currently, BT sports a forward-looking price-to-earnings (P/E) ratio of about 8.1. That’s well below the FTSE 100 median of 16.8. If BT can execute on its plans, we could see its valuation increase.  Finally, it’s worth noting that CEO Philip Jansen bought 1.25m BT shares last week (spending about £2m). This is very encouraging, in my view. Insiders don’t buy company stock if they think the share price is set to go down. Clearly, Jansen – who’s likely to have a good read on the company’s performance – is optimistic in relation to the prospects for BT shares. Putting all this together, I think there’s certainly a chance that BT’s share price could continue to recover in 2021 and beyond. Should I buy BT today? Having said that, BT isn’t a stock I’d buy for my own portfolio today. One reason is that BT hasn’t been a very profitable business. Over the last three years, its return on capital employed (ROCE) – a key measure of profitability – has averaged just 7.5%. That’s quite low. Over the long term, a stock’s return tends to be quite similar to its ROCE. This means that, in the long run, BT shares aren’t likely to generate strong returns. Another reason is the company has a weak balance sheet. At 31 March, it had net debt of £17.8bn on its books. This adds risk to the investment case. Finally, BT’s dividend track record’s patchy. I like companies that have good long-term dividend growth track records. Overall, I just don’t see BT as a ‘high-quality’ company. So, I’ll be leaving the stock alone for now. All things considered, I think there are much better stocks I could buy. FREE REPORT: Why this £5 stock could be set to surge Are you on the lookout for UK growth stocks?

  19. Call Options Example? (14/02/2021 - Reddit Stocks)
    I’m learning Call Options and wanted to see if I am understanding this correctly before I start trading. Currently, I’m looking at a stock that trades at around $30.00 per share. There is an option contract with a Strike Price of $35.00 for $6.40 per contract and expires May 21 2021 If I purchase only one option contract, the total amount would be $640.00. But to just break even, the share price needs to be at least $41.40 ($35+$6.40) correct? If the share price falls below $41.40 when the contract expires, I would lose all of the $640.

  23. Why does earnings growth cause share price to appreciate? (08/06/2021 - Reddit Stocks)
    Why would a company's earnings growth cause it's shares to become more valuable and consequently demand a higher price to acquire? I mean how does earnings growth translate into more rewards for the investor and consequently drive up the value of each share? Is the reward an ever increasing dividend over the years as a company does better and has more money to give out to incentivise investing? What if a company doesn't pay a dividend? For example, Amazon? What is causing everyone to want to acquire shares of Amazon and consequently drive up its share value if there's no dividend payout? Am I just buying into Amazon because I know others will rush to buy it and cause it's shares to appreciate and earn me more money when I sell some day? Are we all just assuming that and that's causing us to buy shares? Why is it automatically assumed that earnings growth would translate into some tangible reward for an investor and cause the share value to appreciate? I mean other than share value appreciation, what reward do investors receive by owning a share of a company? Are we just investing because we agreed upon beforehand that earnings growth will cause a share to appreciate in value? What about if a company kept growing earnings at a good rate for 10 years but the share price just stayed the same? Would anyone have any incentive to invest in that company if it didn't pay out a dividend? Why would I invest let's say $10k into that company that had no appreciation of its share price and paid no dividend?   submitted by   /u/apooroldinvestor [link]   [comments]

  25. Why is the sell position lower than the actual price on TD Ameritrade? (18/05/2021 - Reddit Stocks)
    Just like the title says. For example, I have 1000 shares of UWMC and the price is at 8.44 per share but the sell price to close the position shows 8.35. On the inverse, the price dropped to 8.30 but the sell price was at 8.43. What’s up with the price difference?

  26. Feeling great about TGT (21/05/2021 - Reddit Stocks)
    I am a huge TGT fan. Watched my position grow from a price of $90 up above $220 today. I saw many price target revisions between $250-$260 come out after earnings. I usually comment TGT in the threads I see asking for top picks. It’s satisfying to see a long held pick grow consistently. It’s validating to see strong fundamentals as well as future vision lead to price growth, especially as I see several posts saying earnings are totally detached from share price. And I feel compelled to cheerlead my favorite stock. Wanted to share with the community and see what others are thinking about Target   submitted by   /u/Didntlikedefaultname [link]   [comments]

  28. The most important disclosure in the GME earnings report is the possibility of a share sale. (24/03/2021 - Reddit Stocks)
    Sorry for another GME post, but I find this part interesting. The Question was always in the air, would GME use it's inflated share price to raise money to help with it's transition. If it did, how could it do so with out bursting the bubble of it's own stock price. I think that question was partially answered with a warning at earnings, that they would consider doing so. Which I think is a pretty clear indication that if they continue to have an elevated evaluation they will sell shares before the next earnings report. Because at this point, why not. Now the question becomes what is the price for this sale. I have no idea, there was clearly a floor set around 40, which I think would likely be the low end of the sale. But do they try to extract a premium because of their current valuation? If they set the share price too high, the bubble will burst and they won't sell at that price anyway. I can't imagine they price it over 100, I'd be super surprised if they tried to sell over 70. Given that all the moment lately is built around the idea of short squeeze, what are investors willing to pay if the short squeeze play is unequivocally revoked? Thoughts?   submitted by   /u/spastichabits [link]   [comments]

  29. Sold 50% of shares for profit, yet my remaining shares cost went UP - why?? (24/05/2021 - Reddit Stocks)
    Hello, I am new to stocks and sold my first shares through TD Ameritrade today and it's left me with questions... I've bought 10 shares at various price points and my total cost was $1810. So a $181/share cost average. • I sold 5 of my shares when the price hit $186. • My remaining 5 shares in the market showed a new "cost" of $1190 which didn't make any sense to me. I expected the new cost to be $880 -- Cost of $1810 - [5 shares]*[$186 sell price] = $880. • I then bought 5 shares back when the price hit $178 leaving $40 in my cash account. • My new cost is $2080 for all 10 shares. So a $208/share cost average. I don't understand how I SOLD 5 shares ABOVE my cost/share average and then bought back in BELOW my cost/share average and my cost/share average went UP. ​ Can someone please explain? I cannot figure this out! ​ Thanks in advance!   submitted by   /u/PyroMan99 [link]   [comments]

  30. What are your thoughts on SQ share price being tied to bitcoin? (09/02/2021 - Reddit Stocks)
    This past month SQ share price has tracked nearly identical to the fluctuations of bitcoin. For example, both dropped to their monthly low on 1/27 and had a sharp spike to all time highs today. I am (was?) very bullish on SQ based on the theory that post-COVID, they can generate more revenue from small business + it's possible they could be added to the S&P500 sometime in the future...but as of recently, I do not like how the share price of SQ is tracking with bitcoin. What are your thoughts on this? Does it make sense to stop buying shares right now (or just buy the dips)? I'm not sure what to make of this so I'd like to hear your thoughts. Thank you!

  31. Where will the Argo Blockchain share price go in June? (30/05/2021 - The Motley Fool UK)
    Argo Blockchain (LSE: ARB) has had a volatile 2021 so far. So where will the Argo Blockchain share price go in June? Now that’s a question, isn’t it? And I’ll give you my answer up front, right here: I have absolutely no idea. So if that’s all you wanted to know from me, you can stop reading now. But I hope you won’t. I hope you’ll stay with me while I explain why I don’t have a clue, and why Argo is in a class of shares that I would never buy. Sure, by not buying Argo Blockchain shares a year ago, I’ve missed out on a 3,700% profit. And that’s even after the stock has lost 55% of its value since its peak in March. But a year ago, I didn’t know anything about it. And even if I did, I had no way to guess at what was going to happen to the Argo Blockchain share price. Like almost everyone else, I only learned about the company after the shares had started soaring. And if I’d bought then, I’d have had every chance of getting in too late. Is Argo Blockchain different to any other stock? Now, not knowing where a share price is going is nothing exclusive to Argo Blockchain. But at least with most stocks, we can have a clearer forward view. For example, if I buy a FTSE 100 dividend stock, I expect to keep earning dividends over the long term. I’ll also hope for share price appreciation, but that’s a bonus. The reason I have such expectations is that I can see a company’s earnings. For companies producing essentials, like food, energy, raw materials, and the like, there’s pretty much a guaranteed long-term demand. But what about the Argo Blockchain share price? That’s dependent entirely, 100%, on the price of Bitcoin. And I have absolutely no idea where that is going either. Will it soar and beat its past highs? Will it enter a lengthy slump? What will Elon Musk say about it next? How can I possibly answer any of these questions? All I know is that if I can’t guess at the answers, I won’t buy the shares. The Argo Blockchain share price rise is nothing new The Argo Blockchain story repeats something I’ve seen time and time again during my investing career. A new growth stock appears, typically a technology one. Investors buy and push the price up, usually to valuations that can’t be justified by current revenue and profits. That’s usually because there’s little of one, and none of the other. The price almost invariably tops out and falls, just as has happened to Argo Blockchain in 2021. But what happens next? It will either be a washout and completely collapse. Or it will recommence its upwards climb and go on to ever better things. Which trajectory will the Argo Blockchain share price follow in June and beyond? I’ve already given my answer to that. And because I have no idea where it will go and no way to work out a rational valuation, buying for me would be a pure gamble. And I don’t do that.

  32. Will the easyJet share price bounce back? (09/06/2021 - The Motley Fool UK)
    Last week’s decision to put Portugal on the amber list for UK travellers was a big disappointment for easyJet (LSE: EZJ). But markets had already turned cautious on airlines — the easyJet share price fell steadily for most of May. The airline’s shares have fallen by nearly 10% over the last month, trimming the stock’s 12-month gain to 15%. Travel restrictions may continue a while longer, but easyJet has plenty of cash on hand to survive short-term setbacks — is now the right time for me to buy the stock? Three good things Let’s start with the good news. easyJet has completed its “largest ever” restructuring and cost-cutting program over the last six months. This has included redundancies, pay cuts, and changes to working hours for flight crew. Assuming that air travel returns to normal later this year, I think easyJet’s profitability could recover quite quickly. This could support a higher share price, despite the dilution from new share issues. The next few months seem likely to be difficult, but easyJet still has plenty of cash on hand. The airline reported £2.9bn of cash and unused debt at the end of March. CEO Johan Lundgren does not expect to need more financing unless the 2022 summer season is disrupted. Finally, I think that easyJet’s low-cost structure, large size, and short-haul focus mean that it could take market share from higher-cost flag carrier airlines when air travel recovers. This could help easyJet recover more quickly than some rivals. The bad news? It’s not all good news. Airline industry body the IATA estimates that passenger numbers in Western Europe won’t return to 2019 levels until the end of 2023. This worries me because many of the costs involved in running an airline are fixed. They don’t change when passenger numbers fall. What this means is that while easyJet is flying at reduced capacities, its costs per seat are much higher. This makes it harder to fly profitably. I think this could put pressure on easyJet’s share price for some time yet. Some of these increased costs should fall away quickly when travel restrictions are lifted. But some won’t. One area that concerns me is easyJet’s aircraft finance costs. These have risen sharply due to higher debt levels and an increase in the number of leased aircraft in easyJet’s fleet. These changes helped the airline to raise funds last year, but this money must now be repaid. easyJet share price: my decision My sums suggest that at a share price of 1,000p, easyJet shares are valued at around 12 times historic peak earnings. This suggests to me that the market has already priced in a strong recovery in air travel. I’m also worried that it may take longer than expected for easyJet’s profit margins to fully recover. Although some operating costs should be lower, I think these savings may be offset by higher finance costs. On balance, I think easyJet’s share price is probably high enough at the moment. I don’t see any good reason for a higher valuation, but I can see some potential risks. I’m not interested in buying at this level, but I do think that easyJet will remain one of the better airline stocks. There’s a ‘double agent’ hiding in the FTSE… we recommend you buy it!

  34. 5 passive income ideas I’d consider (10/06/2021 - The Motley Fool UK)
    Passive income is money one receives without having to work for it. One common source of passive income is investing in shares that pay dividends. As dividends are never guaranteed, I like to use multiple passive income ideas at once. Here are five such passive income ideas I would consider at the moment. Well known brands I would consider investing in Direct Line. The financial services group is well known thanks to its iconic red telephone. That helps it to attract and retain customers. Insurers can make attractive passive income sources because they take in a large pool of money as premiums but when things go well, need to pay less of it out as claims. That can make for a cash generative business model, which helps to support dividends. With Direct Line currently yielding 12.5% including special dividends, it certainly seems attractive. In reality the prospective yield is likely lower, as last year the company compensated for dividends not paid during the pandemic. Nonetheless, the pre-pandemic dividend of 29.3p still equates to a 10% yield at today’s Direct Line share price. Risks include recent government moves to tighten rules on pricing of policy renewals, which could hurt profits at all insurers. Another well known brand on my list of passive income ideas is supermarket chain Morrisons. I like the company’s vertically integrated supply chain and moves into online selling. With a yield of 4% excluding special dividends, the payout is attractive to me. But risks include price competition in the UK grocery market. Passive income ideas in finance I’d also consider a couple of financial companies as passive income ideas. The City of London Investment Trust yields 4.8%. It pays dividends quarterly, which can be attractive to many passive income seekers. It has grown its dividend annually in recent years, even during the pandemic. The trust offers exposure to a lot of shares, including FTSE 100 stalwarts such as Diageo, Rio Tinto, and Unilever. I am attracted by the fact that the trust does the share picking, so I could simply sit back and enjoy any income it distributes. One risk is that the dividend is fairly thinly covered, so if the companies it holds slashed their dividends, the trust may struggle to maintain its own payout level. Another financial company on my passive income ideas list is Jupiter Fund Management. As the name suggests, Jupiter manages funds. The name is already familiar to many retail investors who buy into its funds – but I think Jupiter itself could be an attractive addition to my portfolio for its passive income stream. The company yields 6.3%. One risk is growing competition from low-cost fund providers, which could eat into profit margins. High-yield tobacco company The biggest holding in the City of London Investment Trust is British American Tobacco. The tobacco giant, which owns brands such as Lucky Strike, would also be one of my passive income ideas. Tobacco companies like BAT tend to be highly cash generative. Its 7.4% yield is among the highest of any FTSE 100 company. But BAT had over £40bn of net debt on its balance sheet at the end of last year. I see a risk that cash generation could be diverted to repay debt rather than paid out as dividends in future. The post 5 passive income ideas I’d consider appeared first on The Motley Fool UK. The Motley Fool UK's Top Income Stock… 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.

  36. How important is your average cost? (10/05/2021 - Reddit Stock Market)
    Just a general question when it comes to stocks and crypto. Say I bought 100 shares of Stock X at $1 share. It's going good, shooting up and it hits $10. I decide based on my analysis and projections, I am going to buy another 100 shares at $10, because I am really confident it's going to continue to rise. So now instead of 100 shares at an average of $1 a share, I have 200 shares at an average of $5.50 a share. ($100 + $1000 = $1100 , $1100/200 shares = $5.50 a share) I think my math is correct there. Am I hurting myself doing something like this? Is my average really that important? My view is I still bought 100 shares at $1, so I am making money off them, and then ones I bought at $10, I am still making money, but obviously not as much as the ones I bought at $1 a share. Reason I am asking is someone tried to tell me that you should not buy stocks or crypto at a higher price than your average because you are losing money by bringing your average price up. I thought the average was just a calculation for your knowledge and does not directly have an effect on the money you make or lose. Like if you take my example above, if the price of stock x goes down to $9 a share after my second purchase, I am obviously losing some money, but I still have 100 shares I bought at $1 that I am way ahead on.   submitted by   /u/hhhax7 [link]   [comments]

  38. Will the Hammerson share price recover in 2021? (17/03/2021 - The Motley Fool UK)
    Hammerson (LSE:HSMO) recently released its 2020 full-year results and reported its biggest loss since its incorporation in 1940. But the Hammerson share price increased by 20% on the news! If you’re confused by this, you’re not the only one. Let’s take a look at what happened, why the share price went up on bad results, and whether I should be adding the stock to my portfolio. A rising share price after a record loss Hammerson is a real estate investment trust. This means the business buys properties, rents them out, and then returns 90% of its earnings to shareholders via a dividend. In the case of Hammerson, the properties that it invests in are shopping centres. With the lockdown restrictions preventing non-essential stores from opening, many shopping centres and malls were predominantly deserted last year. And due to the reduced footfall, store owners struggled to keep up with lease payments. Consequently, Hammerson’s rent collection dropped to 76%, new leases fell by 35%, and the overall occupancy level dropped from 97.2% to 94.3%. Combining all these factors led to the company reporting a £1.7bn loss for 2020. Needless to say, those are pretty terrible results. So why did the Hammerson share price increase by 20%? Reasons to be optimistic The UK government recently unveiled its plans to ease lockdown restrictions. Under the proposed roadmap, non-essential stores will be able to re-open their doors as of April 12. This is fantastic news for Hammerson, store owners and the economy in general. What’s more, economists at Deutsche Bank have estimated that more than £160bn of excess savings currently sit in bank accounts. This excess has built up from the simple fact that the usual consumer spending destinations have all been closed for months. An estimated 5%-10% of these savings are expected to be spent shortly after restrictions are lifted, leading to a significant increase in the UK’s GDP. The pandemic has definitely created chaos for Hammerson’s business as well as its share price. However, it has successfully kept up with its expenses and even raised £800m in 2020 by rights issues and selling some of its properties. Another encouraging sign is that the management team has announced its intention to re-establish the stock’s dividend and pay a special dividend as well. If approved by shareholders at the annual general meeting in May, the combined dividend payments will be equal to 2.2p per share, which at today’s price of 38p, is a yield of 5.7%. Hammerson share price: time to buy? The worst does seem to have passed for Hammerson. At least that’s what I think. But it still has challenges ahead. For example, many retailers are in danger of going under post-pandemic and Hammerson may continue to see its occupancy levels drop. However, assuming that everything goes smoothly and tenants are once again able to meet their rental fees, I believe the Hammerson share price will recover in 2021. Having said that, I’m not particularly interested in adding the stock to my portfolio. Shopping centres have seen a slow decline in footfall even before the pandemic hit. As e-commerce becomes more prominent and delivery infrastructures more developed, I believe this downward trend will continue over the long-term. And with it, the Hammerson share price. And so I’d much rather invest in this ecommerce stock… One stock for a post-Covid world… Covid-19 is ripping the investment world in two… Some companies have seen exploding cash-flows, soaring valuations and record results… …Others are scrimping and suffering. Entire industries look to be going extinct. Such world-changing events may only happen once in a lifetime. And it seems there’s no middle ground. Financially, you’ll want to learn how to get positioned on the winning side. That’s why our expert analysts have put together this special report.

  39. The psychology behind buying dead beat companies because the price is low vs the companies of tomorrow because the price is high. (08/02/2021 - Reddit Stocks)
    Not sure if the title explains exactly what I mean but I'm always intrigued about the psychology behind people who prefer to buy dead beat companies because the price is low rather than the companies of tomorrow because the price is high. It's a pretty simple decision when you think about it right? Would you rather buy companies that are probably going to have incredible growth in the future but you're going to have to pay a lot now to get on the train, or you can buy companies that are probably going to have below average to average growth but you get to buy the shares at a low price? So high price for high growth, or low price for low growth? That's the question I'm asking... And from many posts I see especially on /r/investing and /r/UKInvesting and sometimes on /r/stocks, it seems like people overwhelmingly prefer buying average run of the mill companies just because the share price isn't high, over the companies of tomorrow because their price is high. But if there's one thing investing over the years has taught me it's that the share price of great companies is usually always high (or close to it), and with good reason. Why are so many people put off from buying a stock because the price is high? You shouldn't be investing in a company based off the share price anyway. Take the ARK funds for example, we all know almost every company in every fund has amazing potential and many will likely become multi hundred billion dollar companies that will revolutionise the world we live in, and yet people are scared to buy in because the price is high? Instead they'd rather buy Exxon mobil, Carnival, Rolls Royce or some other beat down stock even though they KNOW these companies are nothing to write home about and their growth is very limited going forward. It's almost impossible to find a company of tomorrow whose share price isn't high, and even the few times when they do drop 50% or more it's usually still considered too high for many people to pull the trigger, so they keep waiting for it to go even cheaper and end up missing it completely. So does this mean you're never going to invest in tomorrow? It's such a fascinating thing to observe I just want to start a little conversation around it.   submitted by   /u/Redditor45643335 [link]   [comments]

  40. Can someone explain to me why EU banks are a bad investment? (27/03/2021 - Reddit Stocks)
    Can someone explain to me why European banks are a bad investment. I have no positions in any of these For e.g, Banco Comercial Portugues SA have mkt cap 1.75B. September 2020 revenue was 891.28 million and net profit margin were 29.23%. December 2020 Rev. was 482.3M and profit margin 7.61%. P/E ratio on Google is 9.6 while on yahoo finance it was 11 I think (which I find strange) This is obviously looks bad going from huge profit margin to lower and revenue decrease but I still think at 480 Million revenue a quarter and 7.6% profit margin it is well worth 1.75B Bank of Ireland is worth 4B and it's revenue is 591.5M with profit margin 3.04%. So in comparison the Portugal bank looks great BNP parisbas is worth 64.54B. P/E is 9.73. Jun 2020 revenue 10.35B,net profit margin 22.22%, SEP 9.68B, 19.56%, Dec 9.75B, 16.32% Deutsch bank P/E ratio 155.92. Revenue past 3 quarters from latest to more recent 5.58B 0.91%, 5.68B 5.04%, 5.27B 3.57% Wells Fargo has P/E ratio 96.13 Why do investors put their money into Wells Fargo and Deutsche Bank when BNP Paris and Portugal bank look good? Can someone explain to me please? And why is it that the share price of Bank of Ireland or Portugals bank share price never recover in the slightest from 2008 while BNP Paris and bank of America are nearly back to were they were in 2008.

  42. The Trainline share price has slumped. Here’s what I’m doing now (27/05/2021 - The Motley Fool UK)
    Trainline (LSE:TRN) shares slumped by approximately 30% last week. What caused the Trainline share price drop and is there a buying opportunity for me here? Let’s take a look. Trainline share price goes off the rails Last week, the UK government published long-anticipated plans to overhaul the railway sector. Dubbed the Williams-Shapps plan, it outlined plans for a new state-owned railways body to be named Great British Railways. The new organisation will be in charge of the development and maintenance of infrastructure, operating the rail networks, and setting fares. In a potential blow to Trainline, Great British Railways will also host its own online platform to sell tickets. This news is what caused the Trainline share price to slump over 30% since last week. Prior to the announcement last week, Trainline shares were trading for 428p per share. As I write, I am able to buy shares for 284p per share. In the past 12 months, the Trainline share price has lost over 40% of its value. This time last year it was trading for 515p per share. This price was its highest point of recovery from a market crash low of 225p per share. Pre-crash levels were 548p. I am not surprised that the Trainline share price did slump after the news broke last week. Despite being a leader in online train ticket sales for many years, Trainline has often struggled to turn a profit. The possibility of a government-backed enterprise will have spooked investors even further. Can Trainline shares recover? Trainline saw travel restrictions affect its bottom line in 2020. Between February 2020 and 2021, Trainline only generated £67m in sales. This is approximately 75% less than the same period a year before. The Trainline share price did begin to recover after the first lockdown when restrictions eased and the vaccine rollout began. This recent development will be a bitter pill to swallow. However, despite the recent doom and gloom, I wouldn’t write off Trainline just yet. The Williams-Shapps report that was released last week outlines a new enterprise backed and run by the government. These plans becoming a reality may take a number of years. Plus, the UK government isn’t exactly renowned for its efficient project management delivery. See HS2 as case in point. The Trainline share price and overall investment viability may suffer due to domestic issues here in the UK, but international sales are on the up. Year-on-year, its proportion of ticket sales in international markets has been growing. In 2018, this was 10% compared to 13% in 2019. In 2020, the proportion was closer to 30%. This may be a sign that there are other markets Trainline can focus on to generate income away from the UK. My verdict I think its way too early to be counting out Trainline after last week’s announcement. The Trainline share price has taken a massive hit due to the news. Despite that, Trainline has one key advantage in my opinion, which is time. I don’t foresee any rival UK-government backed platform being available or functional for a few years at least. This could offer Trainline the opportunity to put plans in place to offset the impact of Great British Railways. Right now, I wouldn’t buy Trainline shares for my own portfolio. I will keep a keen eye on developments, however.  Fortunately for me, here is another investment opportunity I like the look of.

  43. $MSFT Stat of the Day (12/03/2021 - Reddit Stocks)
    Since Feb of 2013, Microsoft’s share price has only been lower from the previous month’s price 18 times. Many of those 18 months that the price dropped was $2 or less from the previous month’s price. Only once did it post more than two consecutive down months. During the last ten years, Microsoft’s annual return is 27.6%. I tried to find another stock that even remotely comes close to msft in terms of consistency and gains and I just couldn’t. Is there anything close to msft in terms of month over month share price growth and overall amazing consistency? I feel like Microsoft should be a core of everyone’s portfolio, if it isn’t already.   submitted by   /u/WhiteHoney88 [link]   [comments]

  45. The Ocado share price has crashed 36% in 4 months. Can it recover? (02/06/2021 - The Motley Fool UK)
    It’s been a tough few months for shareholders in online supermarket Ocado Group (LSE: OCDO). The Ocado share price, once a high-flyer, has crashed back to earth like Icarus. Indeed, Ocado’s owners have lost almost £8bn of wealth in four months. The Ocado share price’s relentless rise Here’s how the Ocado share price has performed over the medium term: 2Y +56.4% 3Y +108.9% 5Y +592.6% The Ocado share price is up across all three multi-year periods. Over five years, £1,000 invested into OCDO would have become £6,926. This ranks the stock at #1 in the FTSE 100 index over a half-decade. It also ranks at #7 over three years and #16 over two years. Anyone investing in Ocado shares before 2020 picked a big, big winner. However, after a strong start to 2021, the shares have fallen steeply, raising concerns that the stock’s best days may be behind it. OCDO crashes in 2021 Here is the Ocado share price’s performance over four shorter timescales, ranging from one week to one year: 1W -6.5% 1M -14.2% 3M -12.3% 6M -15.9% 1Y -15.9% As you can see, the Ocado share price has fallen over all five periods, losing almost a sixth (15.9%) of its value over six months and one year. So what’s gone wrong? Actually, 2021 started brilliantly for Ocado. After ending 2020 at 2,287p, the Ocado share price initially soared this calendar year. By 27 January, it had surged by almost a quarter (26.1%) to hit 2,883p. This took the stock to within 12 pence of its all-time closing high of 2,895p on 29 September 2020. So far, so good. However, with the arrival of February, the Ocado share price began to slide. As I write, it stands at 1,848p, down more than £10 from its late-January peak. This means that OCDO stock has crashed a whopping 35.9% (more than a third) in just over four months. This has slashed the group’s market value from £21.7bn to £13.9bn — a loss of £7.8bn. Ouch. What next for this growth stock? At its current level, the Ocado share price hovers just 4.5p above its 52-week low of 1,843.5p, hit a year ago on 2 June 2020. Right now, I don’t own stock in this company. But with the shares having crashed lately, perhaps now might be a good time to add this growth stock to my family portfolio? I’m not so sure. One problem I have with Ocado is it is an ‘all promise and no profit’ company. Importantly, the group has made significant losses in every one of its 21 years of existence. But growth companies are often ‘jam tomorrow’ stocks, right? So what might convince me to buy at current price levels? First, I’d hope to see Ocado continue its rapid sales growth. In the 13 weeks to end-February, the group’s sales soared by almost two-fifths (39.7%) year on year to £599m. However, the average number of weekly orders rose only 2.5% over the same period. Second, I’d like to see the company sign more deals to sell its proprietary e-commerce technology to overseas supermarket chains. Third, I’d be encouraged to see Ocado partner with a leading grocer in some major, untapped European market (say, Germany or Spain). Finally, I’d like to see its UK retail arm start making hefty pre-tax profits. In short, until more good news emerges, I will steer clear of the Ocado share price for now.

  47. Will the Whitbread share price recover in 2021? (24/03/2021 - The Motley Fool UK)
    The Whitbread (LSE:WTB) share price suffered tremendously in 2020. Throughout the first six months of the year, it lost nearly half its value as the pandemic wreaked havoc on the hospitality sector. But following its interim results released last October, the Whitbread share price has been recovering. And has since increased by 55%. Is this a sign that the worst is over? Will it return to its pre-pandemic levels? And should I be adding the stock to my portfolio?  What’s going on with Whitbread’s rising share price? Whitbread is an owner of both hotels and restaurants that generate 64% and 36% of revenue, respectively. It operates under multiple UK brands including, Premier Inn, Beefeater, Brewers Fayre, and several others. Unfortunately, these just happen to be some of the worst types of businesses to be heavily impacted by pandemic. Its locations were forced to close multiple times throughout last year. So the company reported a 77% decline in revenue as well as a net loss of £153.7m. While this is obviously bad news, the interim report did reveal some promising trends that may explain why the Whitbread share price started to climb. An independent report from PwC estimated that the UK hotel occupancy rate for 2021 will be around 55% and won’t return to pre-pandemic levels until 2023. However, in the case of Premier Inn, while its average occupancy is around 50%, some of its seaside and tourist area hotels are seeing levels closer to 80%. What’s more, its newly established operations within Germany have experienced 32% growth in sales, even with all the lockdown restrictions in place. Combining this performance with Whitbread’s successful rights issue that raised £1bn last year makes me believe the worst may have passed.  Risks to consider Both Whitbread’s hotel and restaurant businesses appear to be recovering based on quarterly performance. However overall, sales for both segments are still down by around 70% over the last nine months. The firm did raise a substantial amount of capital to see it through the remainder of the pandemic. But this may not be enough if the easing of lockdown restrictions is delayed, or if new health emergencies crop up in the future. Another risk to consider is unrelated to the pandemic. The budget hotel industry is incredibly competitive, which limits Whitbread’s pricing power.  The bottom line Whitbread has a long road to recovery ahead, and I believe the share price has somewhat prematurely increased.  However, I find the strong performance from its German operations encouraging. These international hotels appear to be a new source of growth that could propel the share price even higher than its pre-pandemic levels over the long term. Personally, I’m cautiously optimistic that Whitbread’s share price will recover in 2021. But I would rather wait to see how the firm performs over the next few months before buying any shares for my portfolio. Therefore, the stock is staying on my watch list for now.

  48. Is the Cineworld share price a reopening opportunity? (25/05/2021 - The Motley Fool UK)
    My local cinema is a Cineworld (LSE:CINE), which I plan to visit soon. It’s been a terrible time for the Cineworld share price and its business as a whole since the market crashed. With reopening in full effect, is Cineworld a recovery play? Cineworld share price downs and more downs Cineworld is the world’s second-largest cinema chain with over 9,000 screens in 10 countries and a workforce of over 30,000. In 2020, Covid-19 forced the business to grind to a catastrophic halt. Performance was affected massively. To provide a snapshot, revenue between 2019 and 2020 fell by a mammoth 80% from $4.37bn to $852m due to lockdowns and closed cinemas across the world. The Cineworld share price has experienced a roller-coaster ride due to the pandemic and poor performance. The past two months have seen it fall by over 20% from 122p to 96p per share, which is the price as I write. The past 12 months has actually seen a price increase of close to 40%. This time last year shares were trading for 69p per share. Rewind to two years ago, and the Cineworld share price was flying high at well over 310p per share. This was an all-time high. By May 2020, it had fallen to less than 60p per share.  Recovery play option? As a Foolish investor, I always look to invest for the long term. In the case of Cineworld, it would have to be VERY long term. Pent-up demand could definitely play a part in increasing seat sales and getting Cineworld back to its former glory. The Cineworld share price did creep up when the vaccination programme was announced back in November. As the rollout continues, I expect its share price to continue on an upward trajectory too. From a financial point of view, Cineworld will be weighed down by a debt of over $8bn. On the other hand, it does have plenty of cash and liquidity to support it through its recovery. In a trading update yesterday, Cineworld announced a $203m tax refund from the US government, which will boost the coffers. In addition, Cineworld reported that ticket sales for new movies coming out were strong. The sheer size and footprint of Cineworld’s operation does offer it an advantage and the ability to recover from a challenging period quicker than other firms in the leisure industry. My verdict The Cineworld share price comes with its own risks. To be specific, Cineworld’s debt level does concern me. It will take a number of years of normal trading to put a dent in that type of debt. And what does normal trading mean? Pre-Covid-19 levels of trading would be ideal but that’s the other risk here. With the risk of additional Covid-19 variants, Cineworld could find itself facing local and national restrictions once more and be forced to close its doors. Then there is the risk of competition and the rise of streaming services such as Netflix gaining market share rapidly.  Overall, I can understand why others believe Cineworld could be a good recovery play. The Cineworld share price is cheap at current levels and as a business has the ability to recover eventually. I would not buy it for my own portfolio right now as I believe there are better recovery options out there. One FTSE “Snowball Stock” With Runaway Revenues Looking for new share ideas?
