It's down a little over 2% after hours. 

It was up over 30% since Wednesday so not surprising it sells a little bit after the news. Wouldn’t surprise me if it’s up tomorrow either. After hours is a coin toss if it’s that small a move.

That said the quarter and the guidance for the rest of the year is amazing. I think the revenue guidance is double what the estimates were, like $2B instead of $1B.

No surprise, GNUS was the most-added stock on Robinhood today. #2 was LTM, a bankrupt airline.

Between this stock (was actually in danger of being delisted), GE, Hertz and LTM, who’s buying these stocks. Is Robinhood being used to pump stuff up? Are there Boiler Room type places creating accounts to inflate cheap stocks just to make a profit? All of them have volumes in a day rivaling their floats and some of the stocks like Hertz and LTM are most likely going to be worthless.

Anyone think there’s some shady stuff going on? I’m not saying I have proof but the volumes are ridiculous and these stocks aren’t really good companies with bright prospects.

Yep. Haven't lost more than I've made though. Never putting big money in something like this.

Why would CYDY have any interest in partnering with big pharma once their data is published?  Before, sure--take advantage of their expertise etc but after the data's been submitted?  All the hard work's been done.

I’m not that familiar with all the nuts and bolts of it, but there is significant infrastructure needed to support a commercialized pharmaceutical. It depends on who the customers are, hospitals, pharmacies, etc. but there is a lot more involved than mailing out orders from a warehouse. Even basic distribution isn’t handled by the contract manufacturer.

CYDY doesn’t have any of the tools or skills for this work so it’s mutually beneficial to find a partner to manage this. Who the potential partner is will be interesting to hear.

Some warning signs from banks.

 

A) Wells Fargo with an uncharacteristic restriction on auto loans

B) Banks adding some serious conditions to jumbo mortgages 

 

this tells me the bank risk indicators are going through the roof or are spiking...a certain bear indicator for the broader market 

Also, a lot of institutional money on the sidelines anticipating a pullback...I might look at some momentum plays here and there but I'm not considering any huge long plays as of now.

A couple of questions I have been thinking about lately I would appreciate any feedback from more experienced investors on:

  • How much energy should I put into choosing between similar index funds? SPY vs VOO as one example that are farily simliar. I have seen pretty substantial differences on sector specific funds.
  • How do i get better at trade execution? Particularly on the buy side are you guys using market or limit orders?
  • Do you weigh your long term holdings towards dividend producing stocks? Or do you think that is mostly baked into the price?

Nothing shady.  A lot of articles you can find about stocks replacing sports betting in the interim and the younger generation influencing an unexpected surge of retail investors.

It's a combination of several factors.   If there is a pullback a lot of these younger investors are going to learn a hard lesson.

1) most experts would advise to pick stocks not funds in times like this if you truly want to maximize profits

2) trade execution really not as important unless you are day trading volatile stocks, very important if you are

3) I prefer more aggressive growth stocks over dividend producers, but everybody has their own approach based on what they are trying to achieve and their personal profile.

Good news for sports betting stocks

 

California to legalize?

Quote

 

Sports betting to the rescue in California?

Jun. 2, 2020 10:55 PM ET|About: DraftKings Inc. (DKNG)|By: Clark Schultz, SA News Editor 

The legalization of sports betting in California cleared an important hurdle when a proposal from state Senator Bill Dodd and Assemblymember Adam Gray made it through a key committee.

The clock is ticking for the bill with June 25 set as the last day for the California legislature to pass the sports betting bill and send it to the voters on the November 3 election ballot.

California is forecast to have the potential for a +$30B sports betting market through sports books placed at tribal casinos, horse racing tracks and satellite wagering facilities. "California could easily become one of the most productive sports-betting markets in the world," observes gaming analyst Chris Grove. Tax revenue from sports betting would also help the Golden State with its budget issues amid the pandemic and economic downturn. It could also give Nevada casino operators something to think about.

Up almost 2% premarket. Premarket is always more accurate but I could see the stock go either way because it was such a great report and it’s gone up so much lately.

1) For your example, not much time really. Check fees. Maybe check top holdings to see if they are aligned with your general opinion. 

2) Not sure since I invest more than I really trade and it's not as big of a deal for long play investing. So of the traders here could probably tell you. 

3) I do myself. I like Dividend stocks because they are generally (talking dividend growers/aristocrats, not high yield) very well run companies that will do better in downturns, even if they need to cut/suspend their dividends. We can see that some in the last several months. I also like that you can chose to take the income each quarter or re-invest the dividend for more shares. I like some good aggressive growth stocks, some speculative growth and then a lot of dividend stocks.

Pfizer to invest up to $500 million in public drug developers

 

Quote

 

(Reuters) - Pfizer Inc (PFE.N) said on Tuesday it will invest up to $500 million into publicly traded drug developers to fund their treatment candidates and provide access to the U.S. drugmaker’s scientific expertise.

Pfizer said it will make non-controlling investments in the biotechs with small- to medium-sized market capitalizations, but did not identify them.

The move comes at a time when the COVID-19 pandemic has led drugmakers to delay their clinical trials testing various therapies.

Pfizer said its Breakthrough Growth Initiative program, under which it was making the investment, allows partner companies to access its research, clinical development and manufacturing resources.

 

NP seemed to hint that they've been approached by some other drug companies but wonder if one of them was Pfizer.  They have the resources you mentioned above.

Robinhood doesn’t do OTC stocks, so I think one of the major benefits of uplisting CYDY right now will be gaining access to that crowd. Some good news and they’ll be able to pump it through the roof.

I bought it in October. I hadn’t invested in individual stocks (outside of company plans/401ks) until about a year ago. I had a 401k rollover into an IRA in August 2018. I don’t why it took me so long to invest, but they stuff I bought in during May of last year and then October/November have all done very well. May and October of last year were about the same buy ins as March’s bottom. Some exceptions like ZM and TDOC where they went up during the drop. I got ZM at $67 and TDOC was at about the same price. I remember it being at $95 as well and I bought SEDG at $95 instead (a good buy, but not as good).

Amazing how a stock that was in danger of delisting is blowing up because of retail investors. The article I read said that not getting delisted was the impetus. I think they needed to raise cash and the funny thing is the pop let them raise cash twice at higher levels.

Bought some CAKE yesterday for a swing trade. After hours, they announced that their re-opened restaurants are recovering 75% of prior year sales despite limited capacity. Stock is up 14% now. Dumb luck.

@Reuters: President Trump's administration plans to bar Chinese passenger carriers from flying to the United States starting in mid-June

https://reut.rs/2BuoIoK

Market is brushing this off and perhaps they understand the game theory behind it. But this was more the stuff I was talking about with Trump. If he announced this on Friday, market would have reacted much differently, IMO. The administration is savvy when it comes to all this and in my experience, when they are barking loud, it means they don't or won't actually bite. Friday's press conference was pretty much a nothing burger but it also didn't include a lot of threats to get China to change its behavior. So if I had to guess, they're ratcheting up the pressure behind the scenes.

I am out of CCL at 17.37 for a cool 55% gain. 

I truly believe the cruise stocks are going to pull back again and we can trade them again. I have really sunk my teeth into the cruise industry and they are not going to get back to 2019 EPS for at least.....3-4 years minimum. Probably longer. This will be the slowest recovery in the travel group. Slower than hotels, slower than airlines. This is an international type of travel. 

All of them are going to have to raise even more capitol to stay afloat (pun intended). I am taking this easy trade off the table.

Yes--grabbed some more DKNG.  Not a ton--but wanted to add more to my already light position.  I'd be a buyer for more if it drops lower.   So far my Winnebago and Thor plays have done pretty well.  Fingers crossed they keep it up

CEO comments

 "Genius Brands is in the simplest business. We make animated cartoon programs for children, which we distribute worldwide, and license the characters on consumer products manufacturers for royalty income," Chief Executive Andy Heyward said in an emailed statement to MarketWatch. "The characters and programs, which we began developing four and five years ago, are now coming to market this year with hundreds of products in every category for kids." Heyward said the company has also recently announced its own network service, Kartoon Channel!, which will launch on June 15 in over 100 million TV households in the U.S. and over 200 million mobile devices. Over the past month, the company has also announced that it regained compliance with the Nasdaq's minimum bid price listing standard and two registered direct stock offerings that raised a total of $39 million. Separately, short interest jumped to a record high as of mid-May.

 

Kids network, new cartoons with some based on people and are voiced by (Arnold Swartzeneggar, Warren Buffet, etc.).  Arnold plays a superhero kindergarten teacher where the students are little superheroes.  Lots of other kid shows spanning various themes including science and art.  Shows and network are launching worldwide on June 15.  This includes merchandising of kids toys, etc.  

They were going to be de-listed but regained compliance and raised $39 million through two stock offerings.
