I am tracking volume and price at 10 minute intervals. Volume is slowing while price is accelerating. The hedge funds won't get out of all of these puts in time by the close at their current rate. The spigot has to get turned on eventually.

I am a hold at AMC and may start buying again if they don't hurry up an buy themselves. IMO, Gamma squeeze is in play

Trying to time bottoms is very hard. If you believe in the company long term I feel this price is a very strong entry point long term. Set it and forget for a while. When it doubles....take your

I will make a wager. If this stock hits $420.69 before this earnings call on March 31st, I will pass out 100 FBG subscriptions to the gents in the stock thread.

I saw someone on TV the other day talking about how the wsb are children of the financial collapse and witnessed how their families suffered and the banks were bailed out. I didn't give it too much credit but saw this today:

 

There's some good articles out there (if I remember I'll find them and post later) comparing the rise of socialist sympathies among people during the Depression and present day. Not full blown communism, but more people wanting social safety nets in place coupled with distrust of large financial institutions. The latter were basically to blame for the Depression and Great Recession and normal people got crushed, so things like the New Deal became palatable, and you're seeing it now with a majority being in favor of Medicare for all and other programs, as an example.

Bought back what I had sold, plus a little at $212

Good work.  I sold the $206 lot yesterday at $226.  Moved some of that to APPL and kept the rest in cash.

FLGT210716P55

I wrote these on 1/6 for $14.40. Just over 3 weeks later the Bid/Ask is $5.50/$8.50

I don't quite know what that is. Did you sell a put or a call or what? I see a strike date in July with a target price of 55 but don't know exactly what the transaction is from that.

I prefer to say a week full of buying opportunities.  I love it when that happens in January and February.  

I picked up more Amz yesterday while it was getting dragged down.

Bought some $50 GME puts expiring 2/19.  Sorry people, I think the rug is going to get pulled.

Could be $20 stock by then.

What was the premium you paid?

I sold 4 July $55 puts for $14.40. I could buy them to close 3 weeks later somewhere between $5.50-$8.50 if I wanted to.

I feel like the Hedge Funds tipped their hand by buying so strongly at the open. For AMC, we know they are willing to pay $14.31 a share because the market opened there (and was accelerating during the opening of pre-market until the real market opened). But they failed to get enough shares then by my estimation at the current volume levels.

Volume has to increase for them to avoid the gamma squeeze. That only happens when they increase what they are willing to buy it for.

I have set my first sales at $14.30 and am stepping up from there. I will take all my shares to afterhours if need be.

last three days they were pay up to 13, 5, and 11 dollar for the position.

Good luck with that. Hence why it will most likely fail ultimately. 

Nothing new at all. Just far more advertised because of the internet.

 

Folks......there are far more powerful forces at play here. If you think Reddit users are moving the market.....think again. This is a billionaires playground. What you are seeing is a massive tug of war between massive multi billionaire players....with retail investors hanging on for a ride. It is why if you want to jump into the fray do so with money you are willing to lose a 100% of. It is that dangerous. This is not investing. This is pure casino gambling. This is making horn bets at the crap table. And it is really exciting. And if you hit on a 12 or a 2 in the horn....you are hooked. And you don’t know when to stop until you run out of chips.

 In the meantime I will get back to suggesting stocks you can invest in and sleep at night. 

 

I just free'd up some money, what do you like at todays prices?  Thank you as always!

There's a good chance this is just a short term rise before the "diamond hands" finish the squeeze and move on to other victims, leaving the stock to drop precipitously.  You could buy a put option at a strike $50 or $100 lower than the value of the stock which gives you the right to sell 100 shares of the stock without the infinite downside of shorting the stock.  Since volatility is crazy high, the options will be expensive, but you can pay for that by shorting another put option at a lower strike.  It's difficult for me to draft a firm example since I don't have actual option prices right now, but one idea I'd throw out is buy a Feb 19th $200 put and sell a Feb 19th $50 put against it. 

That's too much effort for 6 shares

11.60

I don't get involved with options but like to follow along with what others are doing.  And so I understand this move correctly...

You paid $11.60, per contract, for the right to sell GME at $50 by 2/19?  Total cost $1160 (11.60*100 shares).  So if GME were around $20 then, you'd exercise and profit $1840 (50-20*100 = $3000 - 1160).

I have some NOK too, but there is a lot less short % here than other stocks.  59 mil short shares vs 5.6 billion shares outstanding.  Seems like there is plenty out there to cover with.  

NOK Short data (assuming this data is accurate)

but its only 1% of the float. SPCE is 67%

I bought shares of $XL in my girlfriend’s SEP as our Biden/EV play a little while back. Been just sort of languishing but that’s fine since this isn’t a trade. I like the fact that they electrify existing vehicles rather than build new ones - niche, and I think fleets will do that more often than just get a whole new fleet, especially at first.

BTIG gave them a $30 price target a week or so ago and Canaccord did the same this morning. But to go with the theme of the day, it also has 73% short interest. I’m seeing this as a long term hold and not a quick flip but the latter might be possible.

Cramer loves them Or he did a couple weeks ago.

Not only that but if people are right that the banks got off the hook with yesterday’s tactics and we are now against a bunch of individuals shorting.... do you think they will employ similar tactics to protect YOU shorting GME, AMC, etc that they did to protect hedge funds?

Seems like betting against the internet when the big guys no longer have skin in the game to me, but I could be off base.

I wish I saw this two hours ago (darn work) but I loaded up more on SFIO at .06 - from my internet buddy:

To all the brave souls that got in SFIO, it's finally happening and we will get rich. Late night email said caveat emptor is dropped in a few days, and OTC MARKETS just updated all their Agrokings filings. This #### is really happening. If you have td or swab today is laat day in history that you can buy a caveat emptor stock, so imo "load up" before caveat drops on probably Monday, as it will gap up huge. Also i will be buying much more if etrade allows on day it drops, and others i know. Anyways important heads up! Also don't rob peter to pay paul. Stack both cbbt and sfio together as a super team as both will see a dollar.

Shouldn't have an effect since these warrants were already known about and priced in.  Maybe similar to what RIDE just did and redeeming their warrants, yet price held/goes up.

The big guys just let AMC run these last ten minutes and they can't get the volume. Price explosion is coming to you. They are running out of time to manipulate. I expect they will open up soon to catch lunch hour and reassess.

I am not crazy about a lot. But these names to me are really good buys now:

 

MDU

AMT

EBS

And DIS I feel will be a $300 stock over the next 18-24 months.

BLDP is a long term bet (Think 5 year hold and a potential 10 bagger). But swim with caution. It will be volatile.

Is it just their earnings misses driving the downward pressure the last 6 months? They recovered so quickly after the March slaughter, and then they've just been bleeding since.

The are by far the best positioned tower REIT in the world. With 5G coming.....this stock will eventually run like a mother.

Also add NFLX to the list. $700 in 12 months is very much on the table. They are a content dominator in the stream economy.

Yes and I have no intention of riding this all the way down to $20.  I'll be out on some big moves down which I think are going to happen in the coming weeks.

OK, so what does that mean?

That means the market is extremely bullish GME will exceed $500 a share in price. So if you think the stock will run to say a $1000 a share you have to pay 10K for the right to own it at $500 a share.

With options trading you do not want to exercise. You simply want to either buy and sell the position to close out the option on the market. 

That 10K cost can be worth 2-3 times that if the stock went to 1K a share. Thats what you are betting on. So you buy the call. Then if the price runs to 1K a share you’ll sell that call to close out the position for a juicy profit. But if the stock goes the other way....the intrinsic value will decay....and you will have to decide to sell it for a loss to close it out before it expires to salvage some of your 10K risk before expiration. 

The key is you risk can never be more than the 10K you paid for the option. And you never owned the stock.
