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.

What does PLTR do and why is everyone jumping in on it?

I've been in and out since IPO around $18.

They process information.  Like when the govnt spies on your cell phone and internet, they take the data and make it so you can analyze it.

I've always liked them because of the govt contracts, but I think most like it now because ARK bought a bunch.  WSB also is hyping it, for better or worse.  It's a legit company, not a pump and dump.  doesnt mean it wont go down :lmao:

PLTR is what would pop out 9 months after Skynet had sex with the Batman computer.

In the PLTR earnings call, CEO mentioned they are re-investing in the business and not focused on profits or shareholders....that prompted sell off.  Just an FYI.  I don't have a strong opinion on the stock.

They are only doing million dollar contracts with the top 500 companies in the world. (Or something like that)

That’s music to long term investors’ ears. I’ll watch and probably add more.

Bezos did this for years.  

In other words, paging @BassNBrew.  :P

Not that it will necessarily happen again, but the last few times FSLY tanked on poor earnings or major bad news there was still another couple of weeks of pain before it really settled and started bouncing.

Although in the past those major gap downs came on the heels of weeks of the stock going up quickly, so maybe this time will be different with it already having several bad days prior to earnings.

I had some last year that I sold near the peak.  I'd be interested in reloading but I'll wait to see if it hits the high 70's again and buy half a position there and another half in the 60's.  If it never gets down that low and I miss it I am OK with that.  Right now I'm busy buying more of the CRSP falling knife every day.

No idea what this is.  Tried to google it, still not sure.

Selling a put = committing to buy 100 shares at a certain price at a certain date. Folks will pay you for that service. For example, the March 19 FSLY put with $80 strike price commands a premium of $350 and that’s before the big drop after hours. If you are willing to buy at $80 on or before March 19, then you can sell that put, collect the premium (which will be closer to $700 come morning) and earn a decent return on $8000 with which you’d be willing to buy FSLY if it is indeed put to you. See also the thread on options.

See, this entire explanation right here, tells me I have a lot to learn. Yikes!

Quite a pull back in MARA today.... not sure what caused this other than Bitcoin price dropping "slightly"...

RIOT to some extent ... but was up $18 yesterday so one could expect some pullback today.

Ideally, I sell put options that expire without hitting the strike price ... so that I keep the premium and don't have to buy the stock. Making money without any stock changing hands. It's a beautiful thing.

If the stock IS put to me, I look to sell covered calls with the same stock. Over and over again.

This doesn't work well if the stock completely tanks.

It's going to take me a bit to digest and understand this.  This is like another language...

Best day yet, up 3.4%.  Remind me of this when a bad day comes.

Leading the way MOGO, MARA and GBTC, with a little help from EHVVF and VZ.

I may be reminding myself with how premarket looks.

Twilio...boom.

I’ve had that for a while, that and TTD were my first two stock purchases back in May 2019. Should have just loaded up the entire truck and been done. I could have sat back and relaxed and probably been fine for the next 5 years. Man, that would have been relaxing.

Nice run.  I just started a position on the last pull back.  Wish I'd pounded it as hard as CRM.  Can't own everything, especially when you are overweighted in boat anchors.

I've been nibbling in pre-market.  Usually in these cases I could have bought lower by waiting.

Same here.  Added PLTR between 25-25.2

The lone bright spot for me this morning: SFTW up 25%!

(Bloomberg) — BlackSky Holdings Inc., a satellite imagery and data company, is going public through a reverse merger with blank-check company Osprey Technology Acquisition Corp., according to people with knowledge of the matter.

Herndon, Virginia-based BlackSky and the special purpose acquisition company, or SPAC, will have a valuation of almost $1.5 billion when combined, said the people, who asked not to be identified because the information is private.

BlackSky, which operates its own satellites, works with businesses as well as government agencies in the U.S., according to its website. Its technology allows users in the military and industries such as energy and construction to collect so-called geospatial intelligence. It gathers this by monitoring locations at frequent intervals through images and data, according to its website.

Osprey Technology raised $316 million in an initial public offering in October 2019. It’s led by Chief Executive Officer David DiDomenico, who is also a partner at activist investment firm Jana Partners. Osprey said in its filings that it planned to focus on finding targets in the technology sector.

Someone may have told you this and I missed it, but if you're new to stocks, you should completely ignore options for now.

Looking like another tough day although yesterday didn’t really end up that far down. Today looks like a tough day. Will be watching a few future positions. May nibble today and if they keep going down nibble some more.
