  1. They have many treatment options available for dangerously underweight individuals like yourself.
  2. I'm doing both. 200 sh to hold l-t and 100 to play with the volatility in the coming weeks.
  3. Only thing I'm seeing. Posted to r/SPACs. Matterport Is Said to Be in Merger Talks With Gores SPAC Virtual tours software firm to have $2 billion-plus value A transaction could be announced as soon as next week (Bloomberg) -- Matterport Inc., a maker of software for virtual walk-throughs of properties, is in advanced talks to list via a blank-check company, according to people familiar with the matter. A deal with Gores Holdings VI Inc. could be announced as soon as next week, said one of the people, asking not to be identified because the matter is private. The transaction is set to value the combined entity at more than $2 billion, the person said. A representative for Gores Holdings VI declined to comment. A spokesperson for Matterport, based in Sunnyvale, California, didn’t immediately respond to a request for comment. Matterport has seen a spike in usage during the pandemic, as people didn’t want to leave their homes to tour apartments or houses in person. Its 3D technology is used in more than 130 countries and by clients including Redfin Corp. and Marriott International Inc., according to its website. The company’s investors include DCM Ventures and the venture arms of chipmakers Advanced Micro Devices Inc. and Qualcomm Inc., according to PitchBook. It has raised $168 million to date and was valued at $355 million in 2019, PitchBook data shows. Gores Holdings VI, a special purpose acquisition company backed by private equity firm Gores Group, raised $345 million in an initial public offering in December.
  4. GHVI popping, but not a ton of volume. Announcement forthcoming?
  5. I don't get the Chick Fil-A love. Their breakfast Chicken Minis are pretty good for breakfast. To me, it takes their sweet and spicy sriracha dipping sauce to make anything on their lunch menu worthwhile. The regular chicken sandwich with that on it is pretty good. The fries dipped in that = pretty good. Nothing there makes me think there should ever be lines of cars outside the parking lot, though.
  6. I was looking at IPOD and IPOF, thinking I might buy one or the other. IPOF in the $15.20s currently. Ended up writing IPOF 2-19-21 puts @$15 for $1.10. Assuming the bottom doesn't somehow drop out, I'll be pleased with either outcome.
  7. I can't decide if I want anything to do with BarkBox or not. On the one hand, it's really easy to look at Chewy and at COVID growth numbers and think, "Man, they could turn this into a really nice little business." On the other hand, I have no idea what their path to profitability is, no idea what their growth actually looks like in a normal environment coming out of Covid, and no clue how to begin to value this company. Which probably means I should get out pre-merger. Might split the shares and just sell the commons on a pop day but keep the warrants.
  8. Have you had your prostate checked lately?
  9. Think I'm dumping my Gores SPACs (V and VI), both of which I was in early. I hate to do it. I'm sure one of them will end up announcing shortly afterwards. The number they have out there now is just unreal. They've stopped waiting for 1 to fill before firing up the next one. Which might be fine if it was 1. Or 2. I think they're up to about 10, and I'm not a fan of that approach. If I do, I want to replace them with something still sub-$12 (sub-$11 would be better) with good management. If you have suggestions, I'd love to hear them.
  10. Out at $8.11. Still made a little over 1% on it. Can live with that.
  11. Yeah, I'm planning to exit, too. Though you have to wonder how far they can fall when they're already 25% below book.
  12. Not exactly. He's said several times he's in it for the long haul. But he suggested anybody who got in when he said to do so sell half their investment because it had doubled up. Which you'll find listed as 1.1 in Todem's playbook. He's a firm believer in getting your basis out when you reach a double on any/all plays, then putting that money to work elsewhere. Additionally, expect some volatility, potential pullbacks, etc.
  13. PYPL on cruise control. A nice beat, even if not a tech company beat.
  14. (009979) Your Self-Directed Brokerage account is ineligible for this type of security. Huh. I can't imagine I had this in my brokerage acct last time, but apparently I did.
  15. Cockscomb and Steroids is the recurring 6am Monday entry on my calendar.
