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.

Lol. I will laugh if this really makes the stock move because it matters so little. That said, it’s our largest holding so I’m not going to complain.

I agree but this also under shoots the amount of people new to the game that would prefer to say they own 2 full shares of amazon instead of 40% of one share, or whatever. Sure there are a lot of serious investors out there but there are also a lot of guys I know who just opened up a robinhood account a few months ago and have a completely different mentality then some of us do.

Total? 

I barely have 27% in any one thing including any of the TSP funds or VTI. I can see having the much in Amzn if you had bought a decade ago in a taxable brokerage but wow. 

Yeah...total...not play account, entire ball of wax account.  Seemed like a smart move last summer to sell everything between $3400-$3500.  When it started plummeting I just kept adding because it seemed safe.

Just dumped a share.

FWIW while I agree it is mostly mental it does significantly lower the barrier of entry to options on the stock which can significantly impact stock price.

I keep forgetting that some people don't use brokerages which allow partial shares.

Does the lower price impact options trading? (I haven't done options)

Yes.  There's no such thing as a partial options contract.  The minimum number of contracts you can buy is 1, and since each contract represents 100 shares and AMZN shares trade for $3000+ each as you can imagine even one AMZN contract is out of many many people's price range.

If the stock splits, the share price gets cheaper which directly impacts the price of options contracts and allows a lot more people to start buying/selling options on it.

Nice day of overperformance in all my accounts today :thumbup: 

:hifive:

My 3 "somewhat actively managed, but not just fun trading" accounts were up 1.7%, 1.9% and 2.1% today. (SE being up 4.6% helps each of those)

Thanks. 

Another noob question - I get that for GameStop and the genre, options can have huge impact on price. But for most, is there a way to objectively measure the expected impact?

@Capella I did you a favor and just sold my Tesla.  17% in 2 months.  I really wanted $800 but have been scrounging for cash for a week now.

Haha I’m holding. We’ll see how this goes I guess.

Honestly, I don’t really buy that much. I think it’s more mental in this odd period we are in. Around $15B was traded today. 4.5 million shares. With fractional shares available, buying into Amazon isn’t hard and let’s be honest the amount of people who can’t afford a single share aren’t going to drive enough volume to impact a $1.7T market cap.

I think there is more confusion out there on what a split actually means than people who have been sitting on cash waiting for the day they can buy Amazon at $600 a share. They’d have to do a really high split (Tesla was the largest recently at 5 for 1) to get the price really low. A 5 for 1 and it’s still almost $700 a share.

I think the new guy will be good for 10 for 1.  At $340 a share it would run to $500 in no time.

They are and according to the company for the past few months they were supposed to have a working prototype of LIDAR in April 2021 and that clock is running out. I don’t think this is a good investment, but just a very under the radar meme stock getting a big push. They really haven’t don’t anything aside from PR and even then it’s not like QS or even LAZR who actually have some deals/big partners.

I’ll buy that for a dollar. That would increase my net worth nicely. Definitely have to think about unloading some more at that level. Maybe a lot more.

I think if it happens it will be 4 for 1. Would that allow them into the dow or would it be too big?

Tesla with a nice beat and the stock is predictably down. Earnings are so stupid. 

They missed revenue. I own CDNS and they beat top and bottom and are down more than TSLA.

From the CFO, down 4% 🤷‍♂️:

I am pleased to report that we exceeded all of our key operating metrics for the quarter," said John Wall, senior vice president and chief financial officer. "We are raising our outlook for revenue, non-GAAP operating margin and non-GAAP earnings for the year while we continue to invest in our expanding multiphysics platform.

However, the company also said it produced none of its higher-end Model S sedans or Model X SUVs for the period ending March. (It delivered 2,020 older Model S sedans and Model X SUVs from inventory.)

Yep, only selling the lower margin cars isn’t good for such a high P/E ratio where earnings for 2020 weren’t positive without tax credits.

Group revenues, Tesla said, rose 74.3% from last year to $10.39 billion, just ahead of analysts' forecasts of a $10.3 billion tally.

I am far from well versed in earnings, but I think the issue with TSLA is that a good chunk of their revenue is from bitcoin sales and without bitcoin+regulatory credits they still aren't organically turning a profit, which is really what the whales are looking for.

I am still HODLing personally.  I've grown tired of swing trading this thing over and over again only to make less money than I would have made by just holding it.

Man I am glad right now that i more than doubled my position in QS a week ago.

Hope it holds, almost even.

Kind of mad at myself for not finishing some positions like QS. I did move a bunch of SPACs so have 200 QS now, but at $31, I was going to make it 300 and be done buying. Some others I only have a 1/3 position on we’re looking cheap on Tuesday. I’m sure I’ll have more opportunities and if I don’t then I’ll be happy that everything is is rolling!

From Yahoo/Bloomberg:

Tesla (TSLA) posted first-quarter profit that handily exceeded estimates, with the results dovetailing the record deliveries the electric vehicle-maker reported during the first three months of 2021. However, first-quarter revenue came up slightly short of expectations, and shares dipped by about 1% in late trading. 

Here were the main results from Tesla's report on Monday, compared to consensus estimates compiled by Bloomberg:

Q1 Revenue: $10.39 billion vs. $10.42 billion expected and $5.99 billion Y/Y 

Q1 Adjusted earnings per share: 93 cents vs. 80 cents expected and 23 cents Y/Y

Yep, add the info about lower margin cars above and you start to worry because P/E is very high and way above regular car companies and let’s be honest, like flatscreens, it’s not far off where EVs are just cars.

ACI down hard on a double beat and favorable guidance.  Time to sell everything generating revenue and load up on stocks losing money hand over fist.

Documenting Bitcoin

@DocumentingBTC

Tesla has made more profit by selling bitcoin than in 14 years of selling cars.

Same can be said of tax credits.

I don’t mind, honestly it’s usually temporary and it’s nice knowing the stock should do well for a while. I think we are up so much now that you have to decimate (and also not have your CEO retire even if you decimate) to pop.

Or as you said be a company that uplists, puts out frog and ice cream memes or has a good probability of filing chapter 11 (AMC).

The DOW does all kinds of crazy math to make up that index number.  I'm sure they could figure something out.

It was a good hockey game. Offense and defense played well. They also said they think they’ll make the playoffs in the future. That puts it all into a Canuck way of thinking.

Woah GME after hours!

Lol. AH is never the best leading indicator, but it’s funny that the trigger was that GME sold more shares. Isn’t this whole thing predicated on not having enough shares to short, hence the squeeze? They dump 3.5M shares on the market and that’s good news?

I’ll never get this stock, ever.

I think the news was that they were done selling all the shares they had filed for before, not that they are selling more.
