    2021 Super Bowl Squares

    $40 squares with $500 per quarter and $2000 for final payouts (If no overtime, final score gets 2500)

    You can reserve squares now and payment is due by Jan. 22. I want plenty of time to sell any welsher squares.

    Click the link below and use authorization code MoMoney. Then just put in your name, email address, and a password and it'll take you directly to the page to pick your squares. All the details are on the pool page once you put your info in.

    So, I have a bunch of cash sitting idle atm. There just isn't enough I want to buy at these prices, so I've been writing a bunch of puts with it. Most of them expire in Jan.

    When I bought my car 2 years ago, I got a decent rate and (partially because my employer had started layoffs) I wanted to keep my $$, so I went the loan route. Now, sitting here unemployed and looking, watching that payment go out every month, I keep thinking I should kill it. The wife and I talked last night about using the cash to pay it off in January, since it's sitting there doing nothing atm. 

    Which got me thinking... is there a better way to do this? Let's say I needed $12.5k. And I had $50k sitting on hand. Could I find 2-4 names I would want to own that I could write puts on, at least 10% OTM, expiration within a year, and make 25% (real, not annualized) on them? 

    Lomez ended up pulling the trigger on this a couple of days ago, for better or worse. Basically paying off (refinancing, if you prefer) his car with risk. In the end, it looks like this. All 20-30% premiums. FSLY was higher than it is today at the point the puts were written. It seems the most likely of the 4 to result in assignment, which would be about a $61 basis. I can live with that

    FSLY Jan '22 $80
    PLTR Aug $20
    DKNG Jan '22 $40
    FLGT Jul $55

    Thanks man, really appreciate this information.  In my SPAC research I somehow thought you got BOTH the shares and the warrants, but this makes more sense :thumbup:

    You can. It depends on the Ticker you use.

    For example, IIRC, NGA is the ticker for Northern Genesis shares. NGA/WS is the ticker for Northern Genesis Warrants. NGA/U is the ticker to get both. Typically you'll start with just the "U" version when the SPAC starts, then they split them into the W and the Shares, as well.

    Taiwan Semiconductor

    Anyone know their biggest competitors?

    Samsung, I believe. Though the reading i did on the subject a while back made that seem like calling the Jags competitors of the Chiefs. Technically? Sure.

    Im extremely risk tolerant.  But I'm 100% crypto related until btc reaches 63k.  Then I'll diversify 40-60% of it off.


    63k is where I threw my dart for this bull cycle to peak.


    The btc supply crisis hasn't hit yet, the mining stocks are gonna sky rocket when that happens.


    Back and forth battle between mara and riot for the largest btc mining company.

    I know you've mentioned being a fan of GBTC. No concerns wrt it when we get a BTC ETF later this year? I have to think there will be substantial outflows at that point.

    Fair point. I don't know how I'd feel about Amazon buying a bank. 

    But for SE, I think it makes sense given their business.

    Really, it's just the regulatory issues that cause me to say that. They likely will not have the same experience they would have in the US, so it probably is a net positive for them. In the US, regulators would use the bank as an excuse to dig into every other part of the company, no matter how insulated the bank is from everything else.

    "Oh, you make cars and you own a bank? We're going to have to take a look at the auto manufacturer's labor agreements, pension funding, every detail of your EV credit program, that redesign you did of the '20 sports car, and the results of your executive team's latest colonoscopies."

    Dumb SPAC question - I assume the ticker change is transparent for tax purposes?  I.e. my holding period started when I bought, say, IPOC and not when it changed over to CLOV?  I don't know the mechanics of SPACS enough to assess.

    I don't know why it would be any different than any acquisition. This is what I would expect. Though I can't say I know definitively.
