    Good luck. I’m just holding until I’m retired. I’ve given up on waiting for pullbacks on companies I like long term except for $OESX which for whatever reason I seem to have nailed.

    I'm doing both. 200 sh to hold l-t and 100 to play with the volatility in the coming weeks. 

  2. 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.

  3. 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.

    That's about all mine is up today. Which I love any day, since it can pay for a new Harley-Davidson Street 750. Not that I need another motorcycle or would choose that one.

  5. 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.

  6. 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.

  7. 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.

    EURN with terrible numbers and fore-shadowing a dividend cut.  I just dumped all my tanker stock.  Probably means all will be up 5% today.

    Yeah, I'm planning to exit, too. Though you have to wonder how far they can fall when they're already 25% below book.

    FYI, I think Todem said BLDP may pull back a bit a week ago or so.  Said to get out and get back in, in the 20's (I think)

    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.

    yep, been trickling it in since 11.19

    (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.

  11. Ignoring the dilution :whistle:, and with apologies to ChiefD's ESG leanings, this seems pretty positive. Somebody is betting this thing is worth $1 in the next few years.


    TORONTO, Feb. 03, 2021 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Red Light Holland Corp. ( TRUFF ) ("Red Light Holland" or the "Company") (CSE:TRIP), an Ontario-based corporation positioning itself to engage in the production, growth and sale of a premium brand of magic truffles to the legal, recreational market within the Netherlands, is pleased to announce that it has entered into an amended agreement with Eight Capital, pursuant to which Eight Capital has now agreed to buy, on a bought deal basis, 23,000,000 units ("Units") at a price of $0.44 per Unit (the "Issue Price"), for gross proceeds of $10,120,000 (the " Offering").

    The Company has agreed to grant Eight Capital an over-allotment option to purchase up to an additional 15% of the Units at the Issue Price, exercisable in whole or in part, at any time on or prior to the date that is 30 days following the closing of the Offering.
