Jesus how stupid am I for not buying a crapton of UVXY before the debate.  It was so obvious.

UVXY is a 1.5x leveraged ETF that tracks VIX (volatility).  Volatility/VIX futures shot through the roof after that ####show of a presidential debate, especially when Trump said he would not commit to a peaceful transfer of power, which was super predictable.

I'm showing UVXY down in pre-market. I think most folks knew how the debate was going to go. :shrug:

Welp, you made the right call. I thought today was going to be bad? Maybe the debate showed that we are screwed with both candidates or that the market thinks they are both such big buffoons that neither will actually change the status quo.

That debate is a sad state of affairs of this social media world we live in where presidential candidates act like the real housewives. I mean do their political advisors actually recommend that because it’ll play well on FB and Twitter? This must be what the Roman Empire looked like before the collapse.

Yeah it opened up but steady fade since.  I'm sure I would have been stubborn and held so glad I "missed" it lol.

And yes, everything you said about the debate rings true.  I am somewhat obsessed with the Roman Empire actually and used to listen to podcasts about people like Caligula and Nero and think about how surreal it must have been to live with them.  I never dreamed we would get this close to experiencing it.

I’m out of basically everything with any edge now.

3 funds for the 401K, S&P and treasuries for my IRAs and brokerage  accounts  

Only individual stock I am holding is Disney for my son. 

I can’t handle any additional stress right now. Good luck.

For those who are still holding shippers, what's your strategy here? I've taken a bath to the tune of about 40% with FRO and INSW, although collected dividends along the way. Looking at their track record, there is still room to fall, but probably not more than another 10-20%.

DDOG signed a big deal with MSFT.  I sold at $101 probably should have held.  This thing can probably run a lot more look at BIGC after they signed a deal with FB.

I'm in it for the super cycle so just holding + reinvesting dividends. I add from time to time if I have some dry powder, but am generally just riding it out. Should of gotten in on $ASC, but missed that one. Will see if it comes back toward $3 and might pick some up there.

I sold all my DHT in the upper 5s. Bought it all back and then doubled down at $4.91.  If dht maintains there dividend I will get 10% on those shares in 2 months. PE on dht and Fro is under 3. That Fro dividend hit yesterday and was equal to 8% of my holdings.  Eventually people will catch on these companies are money in the bank.

Yeah, it’s a multi-year hold for me in my IRA. One of a bunch of stocks I bought in March. Should have bought more of it and others. I was definitely still a little worried about another leg down but the prices on most of the tech stocks was deep enough. I bought stuff like SHOP, DDOG, ETSY, HUBS, DXCM, ROKU and others. Unbelievable bargain at the time. Wish I bought full shares, only bought 100 DDOG when it was in the 30s.

Dumb luck. Put the sell order in a bit ago. I'll take it because usually it goes the other way for me.

Wow Caesar's is buying out William Hill.

That thing was down to a buck during the March lows.  Buyout will be somewhere between $14 and $37 per share.

In Fro's case, just have to hold a years worth of dividends to get back to purchase price. INSW about a decade 🤣

What is this super cycle you speak of?

 Basically the current fleet of oil tankers is aging and when they get older they require expensive surveys in order to remain active. As an old ship they also command less $ on the market - so the theory is as these ships come due for surveys there will be an uptick in scrapping. In conjunction with this, the order book for new ship builds is basically at an all time low. So, at the highest possible level the dynamic folks are expecting and referring to as the "super cycle" is: oil demand remains/bounces back to pre-Covid + there are less ships available = higher rates for shipping companies. There are quite a few explanations with much more nuance online if you do some searching for the companies, but the above is the gist of it. Euronav I find has the best investor decks that are worth flipping through if interested.

The fleet is getting old and there were virtually no new additions this year.  this bolds well for shipping rates.

Do you think there’s also a play here with a potential resurgence of coronavirus this winter and a higher need for storage like we saw in the spring? 
 

Also, what are you favorite tanker plays?

I don't think so.  I don't think we'll have the type of shutdowns that caused the storage need in spring.  I don't want to get politic or off track, but with the resurgence in Europe, I don't the total shutdown approach proved to be significantly better.  Production has also decreased since then.  

I'm very heavy into DHT and FRO and have small portions in TNK and STNG.

I'm DCA'ing down.  Oil companies approaching the Covid crash bottom.  I've been in several major cities in the last week sitting in traffic and I'm not seeing a ton of Teslas.

Ugh, I knew I should have just bought a full share of FVRR. I went in a little for 30 shares at $121 a week or two ago. Wasn’t sure where the market was headed. Wrong call. Glad I bought some, but seems like it still has legs. I was looking back at when I’ve made purchases and February and March were obviously great regardless but I got a new MF service right at the start of June. I bought a bunch but didn’t buy some of the regular Joe’s and that was a mistake. Looking back, the beginning of June was a great buy in point if you missed the mid March through early April window.
