  6. To Infinity and $BYND (29/03/2021 - Reddit Stock Market)
    TL;DR: Provided a breakdown and my insight and bullish thoughts behind BYND. You can read the full post here: https://maxxprofits.com/ ​ I added a position into Beyond Meat recently and I thought I’d throw my two cents out there. Here’s my bullish case for the BYND. https://preview.redd.it/ctlkl3i91vp61.png?width=2914&format=png&auto=webp&s=c39e6679d6bbfc34905a90e003646ebab0b588d7 Beyond Meat recently announced some pretty sweet partnerships for the next few years. A big win is with McDonald’s for the McPlant burger. They will be the supplier for the plant based menu item for the next three years. This could possibly open the opportunity for other plant based menu items there as well. BYND will also be teaming up with Yum! Brands. There will be plant based menu items offered at KFC, Pizza Hutt and Taco Bell. This is a great opportunity for Beyond Meat to reach more customers. Last year, they announced a unique partnership with Dunkin’ Donuts and Snoop Dogg for the Beyond D-O-Double G Sandwich. Beyond Meat also announced recently that they’re going to be expanding their products within Walmart as well. They are currently in more than 2,000 different Wal-Mart locations already. Last year Beyond Meat announced partnerships with both BJ’s Wholesale and Sam’s Club. So, now not only do they have a strong presence in the fast food industry but they are now carving out a spot for themselves in the retail space as well. Beyond Meat is in about 25,000 retail stores across the US. This includes companies like Target, Whole Foods, Kroger, Publix & Sprouts On top of all that, earlier this year Beyond Meat announced that they would be partnering with PepsiCo for plant based products offered by the company. There’s only speculation as to what this could be but it’s just another avenue for Beyond’s customers to get hands on their product. Personally, I think we’re entering into the age where synthetic meat and meat alternative products are an everyday thing. They only get better over time and as the flavor increases so will the customer base. Beyond Meat has already established a trusted brand and they have many customers to show for it. With these partnerships listed above it creates an opportunity for a lot of growth in the coming years. The market has been pulling back recently but BYND has stumbled since late January after announcing the Pepsi deal. It has brought the stock down and away from overbought levels. This tells me there is some room for growth in the price and that we may see more money flow coming in. This is definitely a longer play here. I plan on holding this for at least a year but will re-evaluate every four months just to make sure it’s still a right fit.   submitted by   /u/TheBreadMakerr [link]   [comments]

  11. 2021 - The greatest year of Investing (25/03/2021 - Reddit Stocks)
    It's 2021 and the Corona virus is finally looking like it's coming to an end. A light at the end of a dark dark tunnel. This is terrible for investors. The economy opening up is the worst thing for businesses here in the year of our lord 2021. The best thing to happen to the market? A global pandemic that claimed the lives of millions and shut down the entire world. This was good for businesses and the economy. We all got rich except people who didn't believe tesla was worth a bazillion dollars. Our celebrity host president was amazing for our market, but someone with actual political background is horrific for the market. Biden needs to get a tan and hop on Twitter asap. Stimulus. Well, stimulus was amazing for stocks, until the media decided it wasn't. Now it'd bad. Which brings us to inflation. One day treasury yeilds inching up a tad to expected levels is the scariest thing ever (oh my God! Inflation! Where did this alien thing come from and?!) and the worst thing to happen to tech in quite some time. What happens when those yeilds start to plummet? Oh it's also bad for tech. Fundamentally sound businesses are no longer worth investing in while GME and AMC are around - they are the best investments since Apple or Amazon. Amazing companies here in 2021. Oh and did I forget to mention semiconductors? This year has showed us that supply and demand is a Boomer metric that we should throw out. Massive global shortage of chips? Bad for chipmakers as there are way more demand for their products and less supply. This is obvious in modern day investing. What else am I missing? Can you guys name a few more? What's next I must ask.   submitted by   /u/SnooMacarons1548 [link]   [comments]

  13. Why does it feel like nobody is buying sustainable energy stocks/ETF's? (05/03/2021 - Reddit Stock Market)
    In these last few days or weeks we've seen a big decline in stocks especially tech stocks. I've also noticed most renewable energy stocks went down quite a lot (I know they're still up in the year though). With the world needing sustainable/renewable energy to survive it would be a great buy right now for the long term wouldn't it? That's where my question is. I'm reading a lot about Apple, Microsoft and other tech companies and I know they also benefit from working or producing environmental friendly but I barely hear anyone about the energy stocks or ETF's. Why is this? Am I missing something? You'd think they have great potential for the future as this is the future, wether it's nuclear power, solar energy, wind energy or something else. Pardon my English by the way, just a curious redditor :).   submitted by   /u/preciouscode96 [link]   [comments]

  14. What stocks are actually well priced or even undervalued right now or is the answer nothing? (08/04/2021 - Reddit Stocks)
    I'm looking at the market and it seems like most stocks are still heavily inflated. Tech seems to be down, however, does seems like it'll likely be a bit shaky in the near future, given interest rates, inflation, heavy market uncertainty, and actually when you zoom out on the 1-year graph, most of tech is still very high, compared to just under a year ago. The losses from many posts seem to just be from people buying at ATHs. On another note, non-tech stocks looks like they're more likely to go up in the near future, however have now already risen, and at all time highs, or near it. I'm looking at Starbucks, JPM, DIS, TGT, but really works for most promising non-tech stocks. Seems like we're basically choosing between decent, not necessarily good or bad, but just okay priced stocks that will probably be flat in the near future, and will become a long-hold, or stocks that may also be a great long-term hold, but at very ATH prices, that we should probably expect the major gains to be over, and will likely just to be buying to go up 10% end of year, unless there's something I'm overlooking, of course "well priced" is also subjective, so figured I'd ask and grab some opinions.   submitted by   /u/LifeInAction [link]   [comments]

  19. Here’s my favourite US tech share to buy now (22/03/2021 - The Motley Fool UK)
    Two weeks ago, I wrote an article talking about the recent sell-off in US tech shares. The market was a little bit spooked due to rising bond yields around the world. This would make it harder for debt-heavy companies (like most of the technology sector) to raise new capital. Also, the worry around easing lockdown restrictions could mean less demand for the services offered by some businesses. But does this mean I should avoid all US tech shares? Being selective about US tech shares I wouldn’t be buying a NASDAQ tracker fund at the moment. But I do think there is value in being selective when trying to get exposure to the US tech industry. I think it remains at the cutting edge of consumer demand, and so will continue to see revenue growth in coming years. As a fairly old-school investor, I want a US tech stock that is currently making a profit. That rules out some companies in the NASDAQ. I get that I could buy into a loss-making company based on future potential. Yet the high valuations across the board make it too risky to do that, in my opinion. I accept that I’ll pay a premium, so I at least want to pay a premium for a profitable business. As such, I’m keen on US tech shares such as Apple, Amazon (NASDAQ:AMZN) and Netflix. All are profitable, and have easy to understand business models that offer sustainable revenue. Of the three, Amazon is my favourite to buy now. Going from strength to strength Even though Amazon has been around for several years, it’s continuing to grow at a staggering pace. For example, take Q4 2020 results. Revenue came in at $125.6bn, up 44% on the same period last year. Net income doubled to $7.2bn. These are genuinely incredible figures of which very few businesses can boast.  I’m also impressed that a business that is already very large can continue to register such high percentage growth. One element to this is the new projects consistently being taken on. Also, extending initiatives to new markets is an easy way to tap into new revenue.  One example of this is Amazon Fresh. The first Amazon Fresh store opened in America last year. Due to the success, several are now opening in the UK. The shop uses machine learning and sensory technology to allow a seamless shopping experience. As such, I can simply put items of food into my bag and walk out (being automatically charged on my card later). The ability for Amazon to leverage technology and use it in new areas is great. I think the outlook is equally favorable, based on projects like Amazon Fresh. There are some risks here though. Firstly, Amazon might perform ok but there might be a better US tech share out there. Therefore I might be missing out on a better opportunity. At a company level, Amazon might get sidetracked by the sheer amount of subsidiaries it has, and take the eye off the ball of Amazon Web Services (arguably the main business function). Also, it may not see such strong growth when the world gets back to normal and it always faces regulatory threats too. Ultimately though, I like Amazon and would look to buy the stock now. “This Stock Could Be Like Buying Amazon in 1997” I’m sure you’ll agree that’s quite the statement from Motley Fool Co-Founder Tom Gardner. But since our US analyst team first recommended shares in this unique tech stock back in 2016, the value has soared. What’s more, we firmly believe there’s still plenty of upside in its future. In fact, even throughout the current coronavirus crisis, its performance has been beating Wall St expectations.

    Personal Spending in the United States increased 2.40 percent in January of 2021 over the previous month. Personal Spending in the United States averaged 0.53 percent from 1959 until 2021, reaching an all time high of 8.70 percent in May of 2020 and a record low of -12.70 percent in April of 2020. Personal consumption expenditures (PCE) is the primary measure of consumer spending on goods and services in the U.S. economy. 1 It accounts for about two-thirds of domestic final spending, and thus it is the primary engine that drives future economic growth. PCE shows how much of the income earned by households is being spent on current consumption as opposed to how much is being saved for future consumption. PCE also provides a comprehensive measure of types of goods and services that are purchased by households. Thus, for example, it shows the portion of spending that is accounted for by discretionary items, such as motor vehicles, or the adjustments that consumers make to changes in prices, such as a sharp run-up in gasoline prices. This page provides the latest reported value for - United States Personal Spending - plus previous releases, historical high and low, short-term forecast and long-term prediction, economic calendar, survey consensus and news.

  23. So tech is rotating to value. Can value sustain the rotation long term? (13/05/2021 - Reddit Stocks)
    Ok. So I understand that the money is coming from the overbought tech names, and in the no earning high multiples, rightfully so, and going into the "value" "cyclicals", whatever those are. It of course seems to be coming from most tech and growth though regardless, just more so from SQ and names like that. I understand it's mostly going or has gone into banks, materials, cyclicals. I'm sure this will work in the short term with the reopening (let's see how that goes) and infrastructure spending, but do you think these companies can sustain earnings for another 5 years or will the money eventually find its way back to tech names? I'm assuming though that people will be very cautious around certain tech growth names though maybe for a year or two, so they will take a while to get close to where they were.   submitted by   /u/apooroldinvestor [link]   [comments]

  31. Trustpilot shares: should I buy after the IPO? (27/03/2021 - The Motley Fool UK)
    Trustpilot (LSE: TRST) shares have made their debut on the London stock market through an initial public offering (IPO). It follows a flurry of tech companies flocking to London to float. In fact, I highlighted Trustpilot’s IPO as one to look out for in December. Now that the shares are live, the question I ask myself is should I buy the stock? For now, I’m holding fire but here are my views on the company. Trustpilot: an overview Trust is an important factor in all commerce. That’s the concept behind Trustpilot. It’s a global, independent review platform that allows consumers to write reviews for almost any type of business. In a nutshell, Trustpilot attempts to fill the trust gap between consumers and businesses. Consumers provide feedback about a product or service and the business can gain insights on how to improve. Trustpilot was founded in 2007 by CEO Peter Mühlmann in a Danish garage. Since then, the company has morphed into a global superstar. Trustpilot now has 120m consumer reviews and almost 20,000 paying businesses on its platform. What I like about the company is that there’s a review on just about everything. I’ll always check Trustpilot to see what others are saying about a particular service or product before I dip my toe in. For me, it provides an independent layer of trust. The business model So how does Trustpilot make money? Well, it uses the freemium business model. Any business can use Trustpilot’s basic services for free. This includes seeing and responding to consumer reviews. But in order to get access to the useful information such as data analytics, Trustpilot offers several paid subscription modules for businesses. These increase in levels of functionality and are provided on a software-as-a-service (or SaaS) basis. I like that Trustpilot makes money through recurring subscriptions. It offers some degree of revenue visibility and stability. Growth plans It’s nice to see that Trustpilot’s mission is to become a universal symbol of trust. But it’s going to need money to do that. So the funds raised from the IPO will be used to fuel Trust pilot’s growth plans. It intends to offer new products and services especially using artificial intelligence. There will be a focus on increasing the number of paying businesses as well as entering new industries and product sectors. My view I like Trustpilot’s business and it’s pleasing to see another tech company join the London scene. It gives me more to choose from. While the company’s revenue is growing, it’s still unprofitable. In 2020, Trustpilot generated $102m in sales but made a $12m loss. I’m not surprised the company decided to IPO. During the pandemic, many consumers have been shopping online and hence Trustpilot has seen its business expand. It makes sense to come to market on a high. But I typically don’t buy on or straight after an IPO due to the lack of transparency. The IPO prospectus may be over 200 pages in length, but it doesn’t provide me with much information. As a public company, Trustpilot will provide regular trading updates. This means that there should be more details to base my research on. But for now, I’ll only be watching Trustpilot shares. “This Stock Could Be Like Buying Amazon in 1997” I’m sure you’ll agree that’s quite the statement from Motley Fool Co-Founder Tom Gardner.

  34. What else is there than tech? (12/03/2021 - Reddit Stocks)
    I work in IT and all I always cared is IT companies or companies that work with IT as their business model. Digitalization, Cloud and network hardware is the only area I actually know B2B products and what is good and what not. Obviously I have a very tech overweight portfolio now, which performed great, but became kind of a risk as a big amount of my savings is in it. What other sectors are hot? I bought some pharmaceuticals like Novartis and Roche, but they're more dividend stocks. I looked at LMT which is a great pick for drone and space technologies becoming more important in different industries. But other than that I don't really know what to out my money in.

  35. What 3 stocks would you pick if you had to pick 3 and throw the password away for 10 years? (01/03/2021 - Reddit Stocks)
    My picks would be : NVDA, SQ, and STPK as my long shot. I think there could be some smaller stocks that obviously grow more but as far as established investments I think Nvidia will be in basically every single sector using some sort of tech and AI. SQ could be the future of our entire finance, and STPK is a green tech pick that has huge potential in a up and coming industry. I like genomics too but not sure which one I’d pick Honorable mentions for me : CRSP, TDOC, and BEAM.   submitted by   /u/bignut09 [link]   [comments]

  36. My Watchlist For 5/11/2021 - Low Risk Plays With A Proper Stop Loss (11/05/2021 - Reddit Stocks)
    $AMAT - Great triangle that is approaching the support as well. I like the deal but I want a slightly better price here first. ​ $ERII - We have a very strong support, but we lost the trend line which is a bit upsetting. This is a great support area but we may consolidate here for a few days. ​ $FNGU - Most y'all just buy tech anyway so here is a great blue chip tech ETF at value, give it a shot it may be easier than managing $GOOG and $AMZN separate. ​ $LIVN - We are a few days or dollars from the BEST value - but this is a great area to be. If we hit the support trend we may see a great move up. ​ $LPRO - We lost the channel up trend somewhat, BUT this support area is very strong. I wish we still had trend support but this is still great. ​ $SPT - Approaching support trend as well, and support is right here. I do enjoy this play but I REALLY need to see some life first. ​ $SQ - Amazing play right in value - Love this kind of play here. If we see some life it may be a great HODL. ​ $SVRA - Great breakout potential, but we need a slightly better price to me. I do like this play a lot, but I want a better buy in myself.   submitted by   /u/No_Seesaw1134 [link]   [comments]

  37. If predicting a crash was as easy as looking at historical P/E ratio then wouldn't someone predict all the crashes? (02/03/2021 - Reddit Stocks)
    Hi! I'm fairly new to investing and have been reading a lot of post these days on investing or this sub talking about how P/E ratio right now is comparable to dot com bubble and second highest since great depression. My question is, if simply looking at P/E ratio were tell us about a coming crash, wouldn't we be able to predict it, stop it or atleast mitigate the effect of the crash? As far as I have read, there's more to a crash than just some ratio. For example: In dot com bubble tech companies being barely profitable or COVID which no one saw coming, inflation etc. What's the point of all these P/E ratio posts if crash is almost never predictable? Thanks!   submitted by   /u/ysharm10 [link]   [comments]

  39. Cashback without purchase to be allowed across UK: what you need to know (25/04/2021 - The Motley Fool UK)
    You’ll soon be able to walk into your local corner shop, pub or cafe and get cashback without making a purchase. This is after the government agreed changes in the House of Lords to the Financial Services Bill, which updates financial services regulation after the UK’s exit from the EU. Here’s everything you need to know about the new policy including its implications for consumers and small businesses. [top_pitch] Cashback without purchase: what do I need to know? Cashback at retailers’ tills is the UK’s second most popular method of cash withdrawal behind ATMs. In 2019, shoppers received approximately £3.8 billion in cashback when paying for purchases at a till. However, EU law has historically made it difficult for small businesses to offer cashback to consumers without purchases. Businesses wanting to offer a cashback service without requiring a purchase needed to be authorised or registered with the Financial Conduct Authority (FCA). The UK’s exit from the EU has provided an opportunity to change the rules to make cash more accessible to people, and the government has now seized the opportunity. The legislation change eliminates previous burdens imposed by EU laws, such as the requirement to register with the FCA. Once the bill becomes law, consumers will be able to simply walk into a corner shop, cafe or pub and withdraw cash without having to make a purchase first. Why the need for cashback without purchase? The move comes at a time when the UK’s cash infrastructure is under severe strain from the Covid pandemic. Some shops are refusing cash, and a significant number of ATMs and bank branches have ceased operations. While the Covid-19 pandemic has hastened the transition to cashless payments, cash continues to play an important role in the economy. Many people still prefer to pay with cash when purchasing goods. This is also true for some businesses. There are many that prefer to deal in cash despite having access to a variety of low-cost credit card payment options. In a nutshell, there is a need to find ways to protect access to cash. Allowing cashback without making a purchase is one way to do so. Commenting on the issue of cashback without purchase, David Postings, chief executive of UK Finance said, “Cashback without purchase will allow retailers to enable consumers to access cash at a time and place that is convenient for them and is a welcome development, particularly for those in rural communities. “This new legislation will complement the industry’s existing work to maintain access to cash, including the recently launched Community Access to Cash Pilots.”  [middle_pitch] How does cashback without purchase benefit consumers? In general, getting cashback from your local corner shop means you don’t have to waste time finding an ATM or trekking to a bank to get cash. It also means that you don’t have to spend money to get money. You can withdraw the exact amount you want without having to top it up with a purchase. What’s the benefit to small businesses? One main benefit of offering cashback without purchases is that it can help increase customer loyalty. When choosing where to shop, for example, customers are likely to feel more loyal to the same shop that allows them to withdraw cash without having to buy anything. Furthermore, it will now allow businesses to offload even more physical cash from the premises. This reduces the amount of money that needs to be transported and deposited at a financial institution. What’s the maximum amount of cashback I can get? Traditionally, the most cashback you can get from a business is between £50 and £100 depending on the size of the business. At Tesco, for example, the maximum cashback limit is £100. These limits are likely to remain the same even with the legislation change. However, this doesn’t mean that they won’t change in the future; we’ll just have to wait and see. “This Stock Could Be Like Buying Amazon in 1997” I’m sure you’ll agree that’s quite the statement from Motley Fool Co-Founder Tom Gardner. But since our US analyst team first recommended shares in this unique tech stock back in 2016, the value has soared. What’s more, we firmly believe there’s still plenty of upside in its future.

  40. UK banks pledge to support access to cash (23/05/2021 - The Motley Fool UK)
    As we shift seemingly relentlessly toward a cashless society, some cash-reliant businesses and consumers who have struggled to access cash have a reason to smile. Several top banks and building societies in the UK are now unifying behind a commitment to ‘protect access to cash’. Here’s the lowdown. [top_pitch] What has been happening to cash? The UK has been moving towards a cashless society for some time now. ATM usage, for example, has been declining at a rate of about 6% to 10% a year. Covid-19 has supercharged this transition. During the first lockdown, concerns about virus transmission resulted in many people doing most of their shopping online or turning to cashless and contactless payment methods. As a result, cash withdrawals from ATMs fell by 60% compared to the previous year. According to the Financial Conduct Authority (FCA), cash withdrawals were down 40% year on year in 2020. Are there people and businesses who still rely on cash? Yes. Many, in fact. In 2020, an FCA survey found that five million UK adults still use cash for most of their purchases. This includes the unbanked and those who have bank accounts but prefer to use cash for practical and personal reasons. An example is people in rural areas where inadequate broadband or mobile signals limit access to online banking. Similarly, a good number of small businesses still prefer to use cash for their daily transactions.   As the use of cash declines, there’s a risk that these people and businesses could be left behind. [middle_pitch] What is the banking industry doing to support access to cash? According to trade association UK Finance, banks and building societies have come together and made several key commitments to preserve access to cash for consumers and businesses over the long term. Barclays, HSBC, Lloyds, NatWest, Nationwide and TSB are among those that have signed up. The commitments include ensuring that cash remains available to the vulnerable, the elderly and small businesses. David Postings, CEO of UK Finance, said, “The banking and finance industry is committed to making sure there is access to cash for those who need it as we recognise that cash is still an important way to pay for many.” The banks have also committed to supporting projects that the industry is currently rolling out to support access to cash. These include the Community Access to Cash Pilots. This is a programme launched to trial and test different ways to enable people access to cash. The chair of the programme’s board, Natalie Ceeney, said, “I welcome the commitment from the banking and finance industry to sustaining cash, and look forward to working with them, with regulators and government to finding a sustainable model for cash.” What about the government and financial regulators? It’s not just the finance and banking industries that are taking action to protect cash. Financial regulator, the FCA, has also committed to the movement. In a joint statement with the Payments Systems Regulator, the FCA said that it was “committed to ensuring that cash, and the infrastructure that supports it, remains available for those who need it.” In last year’s budget, the government also promised to enact new legislation to safeguard the future of cash. True to its word, it recently agreed amendments to the Financial Services Bill that will allow people to request cashback from retailers such as pubs, corner shops, and cafes without making a purchase. “This Stock Could Be Like Buying Amazon in 1997” I’m sure you’ll agree that’s quite the statement from Motley Fool Co-Founder Tom Gardner.

  43. US inflation rises at its fastest rate since 2008 (14/05/2021 - The Motley Fool UK)
    Inflation is on the rise in the US, according to new data from the US Department of Labor. Stats show that inflation in April grew at its fastest pace since 2008, as the economic recovery gained momentum. But what about the UK?  Are we heading in the same direction, and if so, what could this mean for your money? Let’s find out. [top_pitch] US inflation: what are the figures? According to the US Department of Labor, the Consumer Price Index (CPI), which tracks the rise in the prices of goods and services including food, clothing, energy, housing and cars, increased by 4.2% in the year to April, up from 2.6% in the year ended in March. This is the largest increase since September 2008. The month-to-month increase was 0.8%, which was far higher than the 0.2% predicted by economists. Excluding often-volatile energy and food prices, the core CPI increased by 3% from the year before and 0.9% on a monthly basis. Both of these figures were higher than the 2.3% and 0.3% predicted by economists. What is causing the fast pace of inflation in the US? The inflation figures could be rising because of a combination of factors. The biggest one, according to the Daily Mail, is a surge in demand as more people start spending money again. Unfortunately, current supply is insufficient to meet this demand. As a result, the prices of a variety of items have gone up. For example, used car prices increased by 10% in April alone. According to the Labor Department, this accounted for nearly one-third of the month’s overall increase in inflation. Another factor that may be contributing to high inflation in the US is the need for businesses to raise their prices in order to survive and offset some of the losses incurred during the months of shutdown. Could the UK be heading in the same direction? Not surprisingly, the jump in US inflation figures has heightened global inflation fears. There are legitimate concerns in the UK that we will soon follow in the footsteps of the US. According to Kevin Brown, savings specialist at investment firm Scottish Friendly, the US figures “provide a small window into the future for the UK where we expect prices will follow a similar trajectory over the coming months, as more restrictions are eased and consumers are given the opportunity to spend freely once again.” The UK is expected to fully reopen most sectors of the economy in the next one and a half months. This could unleash pent-up demand accumulated during lockdown and a consumer spending spree that could see the cost of items rise significantly. [middle_pitch] What does this mean for your money? Aside from the obvious disadvantage of rising prices, which may make it difficult and expensive to maintain your current lifestyle, high inflation is bad news for those who were able to save money during lockdown. Brown summarises it pretty well: “The risk for households is that a sustained period of higher inflation could be damaging to many savers who will find it almost impossible to find a home for their cash that offers a rate of interest greater than that.” In other words, the lack of savings accounts with rates that can match or exceed that of inflation means that savers face the prospect of seeing their money progressively lose its value over time. How can savers hedge against inflation? Investors may want to consider investing in stocks and shares to hedge against inflation. Rising prices of goods and services can translate to higher profits for businesses. In turn, this can boost investor confidence and lead to an increase in share prices. Nothing is guaranteed, of course. But over the long term, the stock market has historically provided investors with returns that beat inflation. It’s an option worth considering, but make sure you do your homework first. “This Stock Could Be Like Buying Amazon in 1997” I’m sure you’ll agree that’s quite the statement from Motley Fool Co-Founder Tom Gardner.

  44. My Watchlist For 6/1/2021 -- Is "May, Sell And Go Away" Over!? (01/06/2021 - Reddit Stocks)
    $AAPL - Great trend coming right into play, POC support, traditional support. Tech is doing well, love it ​ $ALSN - Another amazing uptrend, support is right here as well, and low risk high reward. My kind of setup for sure. ​ $CTSO - We may see this lower, but this is a great one to watch for an easy support play with very minimal risk. ​ $EVR - Great uptrend, consolidating for a big move. It may be down so make sure to use a stop loss. ​ $LPG - I still want this bad boy lower as well, but this is an amazing uptrend I want to see continue. ​ $NLSN - Right where we want it and showing some life here. If we break out higher this may be an amazing play. ​ $PPC - Horizontal channel funneling right into a trendline? Love it. This is a dynamite looking play. ​ $VGR - Could be lower, but this support is amazing. IF we do see $13.50 this may be an absolute no brainer.   submitted by   /u/No_Seesaw1134 [link]   [comments]

  45. All tech stocks are getting massive amounts of volume currently. Expect NQ to push to and continue past all time highs the coming weeks. (11/04/2021 - Reddit Stocks)
    We saw a rotation out of tech late March into value (according to CNBC, seems like bs to me), but now tech giants are getting massive pumps of volume, in my opinion you should see the NASDAQ coming out of this sideways movement back into all time highs, and push even higher than that. If you check RSI on most tech stocks, AAPL, FB, ADBE, (I know everyone hates Cramer but FAANG), they all follow the same chart. They get overbought for a certain period then come near oversold, all at the same times. From what we've seen the past few years in the RSI, it seems that we are halfway through an overbought period, nice for short term gains. It's actually laughable how similar all these companies charts are, but some of them are breaking out before others, like FB, AMZN, GOOGL are pretty much confirmed already, I'm hopping on some other tech for short term. Although I think there will be another correction by June or July, with more worries about the bond market and inflation most likely, you should see a nice bull market in tech innovative for a little while.   submitted by   /u/nibdoe [link]   [comments]

  46. Sundials looking great long term here (13/02/2021 - Reddit Stocks)
    Sundials has terrific long term fundamental metrics. They cut 50% of workforce in 2020 to focus on profitability and transitioned from strictly growing to more of a direct retail presence which has much higher margins and lower revenue. It’s competitors dump all their cash into revenue and advertising and it’s not comparing apples to apples. Sundials is such a high quality company that could have double or triple its current revenue if it liked burning cash but it doesn’t and turned an operating profit last quarter. In an up-and-coming budding industry it’s easy to say weed stocks are overvalued but get ready for the long term push. This is the new alcohol and they are breaking into drinks. They said it about amzn and tsla. Get ready. Should be $5 soon then $10. They are obviously getting ready for a deal with $660 million cash on hand and no debt. I owned fuelcell and bionan before they took off and was astonished with their run. Sundials could absolutely do the same thing. Things take time and it may be a rocky road but the company is setup for massive success in the future. It will likely get acquired in next 5 years anyway. The market judges potential as much as results and sundials brings massive amounts of both.   submitted by   /u/Typical_Turtle33 [link]   [comments]

  47. The case for ULTA - a smart retail reopening play. (16/06/2021 - Reddit Stocks)
    Disclosure: I have a position in ULTA, opened earlier this week. Writing this DD to clarify my thoughts and present the case to you fine folks in case there's something I may have overlooked. As always, do your own research. Background [ULTA] Ulta Beauty is a specialty cosmetics retailer with a large brick-and-mortar presence across the U.S. It has been growing share during the lockdown through e-commerce - in spite of most stores being closed as non-essential. With reopening, they're poised to do extremely well over the upcoming year. Encouraging Facts Cosmetics is a fantastic retail business to be in: compact items, high margins. ULTA's leading market position has led to exclusive contracts with brands, a pricing advantage, and cross-selling of multiple types of products/services. In-store salons and a customized shopping experience are their differentiator. in 2018, ULTA acquired two tech companies to aid in customer personalization and building their digital ecosystem. This has paid off, and they have an amazing rewards program with 30M+ members. In other words, of American women over the age of 15, more than one out of five is an ULTA rewards member. Ulta also has paid membership options that give extra rewards - leading to customer loyalty in an otherwise fragmented retail space. Ulta is a destination store in malls, giving them a bargaining edge when it comes time to renew leases - they benefit from the tough time that mall REITs and other retailers have had. Recently announced partnership with Target with ~100 Ulta branches opening within Target stores - should be great in getting non-mall customer exposure. Financial strength: zero debt, almost a billion in cash on the balance sheet, easy access to lines of credit. Valuation: forward p/e of 27 is only moderately above their historical mid-20s ratio. In a market of high valuations, you're getting a growth company at a value price (PEG ratio = 0.74). Analyst sentiment: last week there were multiple upward price revisions. Institutional enthusiasm for the stock may be a catalyst for moves up in the near future. Bear Case Competitors: cosmetics sold by generic retailers or pharmacies like WBA, Sephora (LVMH) in malls, and Amazon is attempting to enter the attractive cosmetics market too. This may drive down margins over the long run (although I suspect that cosmetics are differentiated enough that some pricing power will remain for a superior shopping experience). Ulta's fantastic CEO, Mary Dillon, who led the brand's transformation over the past decade has recently retired as of June 2. She's moving to a backseat role and being replaced by Dave Kimball (who was promoted through the marketing division). Hopefully he doesn't screw up the good thing that Dillon got rolling. Some uncertainty about this transition may be why the stock hasn't gone up more already. First quarter results were great, is the good news all priced in? In my opinion, there's a lot of pent up demand to socialize and go to malls, which will be great for Ulta, others may disagree. If there's another covid closure or big economic pullback, all of retail sector will suffer. Inflation doomsayers and interest rate bears, look away. Summary Ulta is a tech-enabled retailer that is emerging stronger out of the pandemic. Their digital investments are paying off and I personally expect a great future for them. Position: shares. Will not speculate as to time-based catalysts for options as I don't play that way. If I did, I'd get LEAPs. If you want something riskier but along similar lines, look at LB (Victoria's Secret/Bath and Body Works) for a brand that is less smart digitally but also a winner from pent up women's shopping demand.

  48. Waiting for the FOMC and end of week (16/03/2021 - Reddit Stock Market)
    The EUR/USD is moving higher this morning. If it can break and close above 1.20 I’ll be more inclined to buy and hold long positions in stocks and silver. Other commodities and bitcoin are not investable for me personally until they correct, or have a long sideways consolidation. In addition to the EUR/USD I’m also watching high yield debt (HYG & JNK). These both showed signs of coming out of their corrections by closing above the 10DMA, but they moved back below it the next day. The fact that these are struggling makes me think this correction is not over, despite the action in the S&P and Dow. Stocks The S&P 500 is hovering just above its February highs and is just shy of 4,000. I won’t be surprised to see it reach 4K today or tomorrow before the FOMC meeting. I’m curious to see what happens after that. I plan to be mostly on the sidelines for that announcement as any mention of a future rate increase could scare the market. It could also unleash the bubble higher if more dovish measures like YCC are announced. I can’t predict what will be announced so I’ll likely choose to get back into positions Thursday morning at earliest. I want to see where the week ends. Missing a little bit of the move is not a big deal. If a final bubble is about to begin there will be plenty of room to run for weeks. I’m also more interested in tech stocks, semiconductors, and genomics than I am in travel and financial sectors. Tech is making progress from last weeks lows, but it is still not coming out of the correction as quickly as I would like to see. More sideways chop or a move back down is likely needed before a trend higher starts. Silver Gold and silver have looked positive to start of the month. I still doubt a move for silver above 30 is imminent so while I may take some day-trade positions in silver I don’t plan to hold them for more than a day or two. Like stocks, I want to see where silver ends the week. My feeling is it is still stuck in this range and in the short term the risk of the next big move is still lower, not higher. Oil In a past post I mentioned oil’s price was diverging from RSI. I thought that trend was breaking but it still appears to be in tact. I don’t recommend shorting but will continue to say if you own long positions in oil or oil services it is a good time to take partial profits and raise stops. Oil could just keep rising to 70+. It is much less predictable than other stocks and commodities. Current signs are consistently telling me a pullback is likely near.

  49. Some new articles released regarding buybacks and security tech for KT Corp (25/05/2021 - Reddit Stocks)
    With the newer upward momentum in KT Corp. things appear to be continually positive for the Digico company.
